It appears there is no god.

As seen in Braddon.

The pretty blonde driving the Peugeot is also wearing a hat saying “Paris” just in case you didn’t get that she really, really digs Paris.

It just seems so unfair.

Actually I think I remember reading that compared to some of the other heiresses out there, the Hilton’s aren’t actually going to get much (I think it’s going to be spread widely).

Or in Paris’s case, wasn’t going to get much. I hadn’t heard that she had been written out of the will.

Apparently, it’s her still breathing grandad that’s pulling her inheritance. It was reported he’s not to keen on his grandkids running the family name into the ground

Too late.

I admire her as an actor, her movie “The Hottie or the Nottie” was one of the highhlights of….sorry, sorry, I cannot go on, have to go dry my trousers…….

Agreed Jim. But you have to give her credit for manipulating what many of us today want a piece of. Media celebrity. Our 15 min of fame. She has kept her head and capitalised her fame.

Actually, P1 and Berraboy68 were the perspicacious ones. But I’ll reply anyway.

‘Give her credit for manipulating what many of us today want a piece of’? Hell no. I won’t do that. Nor will I give Hitler credit for manipulating the German people through anti-semitism (yep, Godwin’s law in full effect here) or John Howard credit for manipulating Australian xenophobia to help win elections.

Obtaining power and money isn’t always a good thing. Personally, I’d argue that Paris Hilton has set back the cause of intelligent, self-empowered women.

She capitalised on her fame, and I think that society is all the worse for it. What is she famous for? What exactly has she done? Essentially, she’s famous for being famous.

Jim Jones said: (Paris)inherited huge piles of money and this makes her ‘an intelligent businesswoman’?

Then Dexi replied:

dexi said :

Yes it does Jim. She has developed her own brand name that is easily recognised. As demonstrated in this thread.

I say: Big bank accounts don’t equal brains Dexi. If it did she’d have stayed under her families radar, been a good girl and not been written out of the will. Then she’d have been far richer than is now the case. Paris is only a brand name due to the questionable habits of Gen Y and Z (and some others) who love to make ‘hero’s’ out of anybody who magazines or TV tell them to. If Paris weighed 28 stone, lived in Charny (OK maybe that’s too much of a stretch, lets say Spence instead) and drove a beat up old Falcon she’d probably still have the same capacity for intelligence. She’d just lack the ‘old money’ or contacts to indulge herself or attend parties where she would have been noticed in teh first place.

Popularity does not = intelligence.

Indeed Dexi!

Much like Paris Hilton, I’m sure the owner knew what she was doing drawing attention to herself. 2CC and RA just played into her hands. She is just another self-promoter looking for attention. I think that is the purpose of personalised plates. “Look at me, look at me, Ive got lots of money to buy, look at me plates.”

Jim Jones Jim Jones 10:31 am 11 Dec 08

So I suppose it’s time for me to get a numberplate that says ‘Dubbo’.

I apologise for the first post, and assuming that it related to Ms Hilton. While I am uncertain why anyone would like Paris the city either, I am much less critical of someone expressing this affection. Although, she might take the relies to this thread as an indication that her intention may be unclear to many people.

On the subject of Ms Hilton and her “good business sense”, the first I ever heard of her was when she came to the Melbourne Cup several years ago, and the media reported it more then the race. Next I heard was when her [cough] “home movie” came out. I suggest to you that if the whole “Paris” dumb blonde branding has been carefully constructed act, then the amount of money she has made through selling shit music, movies and TV shows makes her the most savvy business woman in the world. If, however, she has simply been given an enormous amount of capital in the form of her name, then built on that by being pretty (or not, depending on your opinion), and making home made porn (throw in DUI and jail for good measure), then I reserve the right to hate her. Remember though that I have never met her, am unlikely ever to, and so this is all acedemic. She might be very nice and not spoilt at all.

Man…if I was Welshy I wouldn’t be admitting to knowing her! Maybe we can do an exchange program and just move her over there? I wonder if she speaks French, or has the capability to do so?

In one of those curious little coincidences, I picked up a leaflet this morning for the ABC’s Life magazine. It was headlined “Life is just too short to be reading about Britney and Paris”.

Amen to that. So here endeth my time on this thread! 🙂

ant ant 9:12 am 11 Dec 08

She hasn’t inherited anything yet. You don’t inherit stuff until the owner of it dies. And Daddy Hilton is still extant.

dexi dexi 9:06 am 11 Dec 08

johnboy johnboy 9:06 am 11 Dec 08

Actually she didn’t inherit much more than the name.

Jim Jones Jim Jones 9:04 am 11 Dec 08

I-filed said :

Paris Hilton is a very smart and highly intelligent businesswoman. Any male who thinks she is an airhead should compare his bank balance with hers.

She inherited huge piles of money and this makes her ‘an intelligent businesswoman’?

She’s driving a peugeot. It will break down. I love schadenfreud.

willo willo 11:48 pm 10 Dec 08

i repeat……..WHAT IS THIS SHEILA’S PHONE NUMBER??????

Gungahlin Al Gungahlin Al 11:40 pm 10 Dec 08

“Apparently ‘Welshy’ knows the driver and it seems she does just love Paris (the city).”

Hah! There ya go JB.
