Paris Hilton could only be considered a billionaire heiress in a world where pigs have wings and green is blue.

Yeah, I have really low standards, and Paris Hilton is too skanky, too skinny, and too dumb for me. LOL. I wonder how such a person came from a such a rich family?

I don't think she is as stupid as she has been made to be by the press.

I do think she has very little motivation and was not really driven to be an achiever. She is also quite spoiled, but something about her makes me think she may be pulling a little bit of a "John Gotti" to escape scrutiny on things that are more serious than who she slept with.

Who was the one who pretended to be senile?

I thought that was John, but I could be wrong.

(I remember him being led to court in his bathrobe with a cane and mussy hair... or am I confusing people here...)

Vincent "Chin" Gigante, a.k.a. The Oddfather.

Like Paris Hilton, was frequently seen in public wearing bedclothes.

Is she still even a millionaire?

Didn't Conrad Hilton take away Paris's inheritance? She was supposed to inherit around $27-30 mil?

Her "Paris" brand of handbags and other crap is worth alot but it's not worth $30 million.

She's a smart girl.

You'd be surprised at how much she can (and most likely does) make off her own personal "brand".

dont know about smart but definitely knows how to grab attention....

I think she has a bunch of contracts that are worth like $1 million with a few companies each...don't know how much sales of her colognes and hand bags bring in...

What Paris Hilton Can Teach You About Branding

... Paris Hilton is some sort of branding genius. She inspires me because
of her constant reinvention and her ability to stay center stage without
offering too much. People would be shocked to know how intelligent she is
and how calculated everything she does is. Not only shocked -- it would ruin
her brand. If you believed it was all premeditated it wouldn't work ...

10 reasons why Paris Hilton is a business genius

She is widely derided as the most lamentably air-headed celebrity of the
age, but beneath those golden hair extensions ticks a canny business brain.
Here, Chas Newkey-Burden, the author of the new biography Paris Hilton,
Life on the Edge, reveals why

She's been to prison like Martha Stewart. She's launched her own clothing lines (http://www.shopkitson.com/), for both people and dogs. She's even been mentioned by Robert Redford as a harbinger of doom for his Sundance Film Festival. (Redford said the event has become "a big fat market where you have people like Paris Hilton going to parties.") But it turns out the true Paris Hilton is actually a business wizard of unparallelled brilliance.

1. When she met the CEO of the Guess fashion line, she wooed him by recounting an encyclopaedic knowledge of company’s history. He signed her up on the spot. (cf: Simon Ambrose in the penultimate week of The Apprentice.)

2. Parlux Fragrances have described her as “a marketers’ dream” and estimated that by signing up her to endorse a perfume range they tripled the company’s value.

3. She got paid $1million to fly to Austria, wave at a crowd and tell them she loves Austria. "But why do you love Austria?" she was asked. “Because they pay me $1million to wave at a crowd,” she smiled. You can’t argue with that.

4. She's lucky. When footage of her having sex leaked onto the internet, propelling her into the headlines, the silver lining was it's timing: shortly before the debut episode of her reality television show The Simple Life.

5. She's lucky more than once. In the week she published a book ‘written’ by her famous dog Tinkerbell, the chihuahua went missing for a few days, putting the book into the media spotlight.

6. She knows which opportunities to decline: “I turn down perverted things, like a Paris Hilton blow-up doll.” One must have one's standards.

7. She's lauded by other businesspeople. A successful real estate magnate - OK, her father Rick – says of her successes: “She hasn’t tried to spread herself too thin.”

8. How many other ‘dumb blondes’ have seen their book spend five weeks on the New York Times best-seller list?

9. She was reportedly recently offered $1 million by The Learning Annex to teach a 60-minute class on “How to Build Your Brand.” This would make her the second-highest paid Annex speaker, behind her friend Donald Trump.

10. She admits that she encourages people to believe she is dumb and “laughs all the way to the bank” as a result.

Paris Hilton: Life On The Edge by Chas Newkey-Burden is published by John Blake on August 27, price £9.99
