You might not remember, but there was a time Paris Hilton was bigger than Kim Kardashian. Yes, Kim Kardashian was riding the waves behind Paris Hilton before she became KIM KARDASHIAN. In case you don’t know who Paris Hilton is…she is a heiress to the Hilton Hotels. This means she receives part of the financial benefits of the Hilton family run hotel. Hilton’s great-grandfather(Conrad Nicholson Hilton) founded the Hilton Hotels that has allowed her to grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth.
Despite being born into riches- one would expect Paris to blow onto the media scene as a well-known business woman venturing into her own right of success- but it was her nasty acts which made Paris well-known. Paris, now 38 years old became well known in 2003 after she made a sex tape with the boyfriend Rick Salomon. The spotlight became bright on Paris with t.v. offers rolling in along with along with other big money-making gigs. It was reported that Paris would be booked to show up to a night club-and be paid thousands just for her appearance.
Kim Kardashian seemingly ripped a page right out of Paris’ playbook. She too made a sex tape with rnb singer Ray J-which blew the doors wide open in the public now having a new, hot piece of meat to look at. Kim quickly out-shinned Paris as the next thing to watch in the reality show world. If it wasn’t for Kim’s attachment to Paris- the sex tape she made with Ray J most likely would not have peaked in public interest. Kim recognizes the attention she as a result of her connection to Paris Hilton, and recently said this:
“I really would wanna do anything for her,” Kim says. “She literally gave me a career. And I totally acknowledge that… It’s like, I’m trying to get everything done before the Met [Gala] and everything done before the baby comes, but I would drop it for her because that’s important to me, to be loyal to people.”
