It appears there is no god.

By johnboy 10 December 2008 108

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.

What’s Your opinion?

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.

I’m tossing up getting plates with “stabwood” or just “tosser”

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.
