Born in the Big Apple in 1981, the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, who founded the famous hotels, has enjoyed a life of luxury since the day she was born. The blonde beauty began modeling when she was 19 years old, after signing with the Donald Trump model agency. Yes, we’re talking about the one and only Paris Hilton.
But Hilton really shot to fame in 2003 when a certain video of some very X-rated… well, “shenanigans”… was leaked onto the internet, just as she made her TV-debut alongside Nicole Richie in the reality show ‘The Simple Life’.
On top of being one of the first real reality stars, Paris is also just a great businesswoman. She’s created an empire that includes stores, perfumes, beach clubs and more, all before she turned 30. As of 2019, Paris Hilton’s net worth is reported to be $300 million dollars.
It’s always a little bit hard to tell exactly how much a member of the 1% actually works for a living. But we can tell that when Paris does it, she sure does it like a full blown A-List celebrity.
While partying with pals at an exclusive club in New York City on an ordinary weekday a few years ago, the heiress spent a sweet $230,000 on cocktails in a single night. But of course that’s no big deal when you casually earned a whopping $2.7 million the week before on your DJ tour. A tour in which she only worked for 4 days, including a stop at club Amnesia in Ibiza, but took her on a four-month journey across the rest of the Mediterranean. Is there a better way to live the A-List Lifestyle? We sure can’t think of any.
It certainly puts her night out back in New York in the right perspective, and makes that $230 grand for 11 bottles of vodka look like chump change for the 36-year-old. And just in case you’re wondering what a super celeb would tip on such an epic bill, how about $47,000 bucks? Not a bad day’s work for the club’s staff.
Also, why work if you can’t take a proper vacation every now and then? For regular folks, the opportunity to go straight to first class when boarding a plane, instead of heading for the economy seats is a rare treat. But when you’re a multi-millionaire like Paris Hilton, well, that turns flying into a whole different ballgame. It’s a good thing Hilton got the chance to travel in style and get a little rest. Zipping around the globe can be an action packed couple of weeks for the superstar socialite.
Being ultra rich naturally also has a few downsides. It can, as we all know, sometimes be lonely at the top. But Paris wouldn’t be Paris if she didn’t know exactly how to counter that problem: by surrounding herself with BFFs. As often as possible and as many as you can. She practically gives the term BFF a whole new meaning.
Fashion designer, actress and television personality Nicole Richie is of course Hilton’s very bestest of best BFFs, ever since they shared their friendship with the world on ‘The Simple Life’.
And what about Lindsay Lohan? She and Paris were the best of friends, right up until they had their famous – and very public – falling out. So yeah, what about Lindsay Lohan?
A-List personality Kim Kardashian West became pals with Paris back in the day when she worked as the heiress’ stylist. It’s funny how things work out, isn’t it?
Through the years we’ve seen the likes of Britney Spears, Sophie Turner, Lady Gaga and Emma Roberts all photographed together with Hilton at various A-List events.
Recently Paris was in the news for her engagement to ‘The Leftovers’ star, Chris Zylka, He gave her a $2 million dollar engagement ring, which she promptly lost. She got it back, but it hardly mattered, because she called things off less than a year later.
So, Ms. Hilton won’t be calling herself Mrs. Zylka, but be sure to keep an eye on her Insta-page, because when this super A-Lister does get married, the pics will no doubt be epic.
