Paris Hilton, the 5' 8" socialite was born 1981 in Ny, NY. In case you've been hiding under a rock, Paris is the heiress to the Hilton Hotel fortune.
Paris Hilton became a mega star over night with the release of her now famous sex-tape in 2003. The tape, later named 1 Night in Paris created a worldwide phenomenom out of Paris. She has always denied authorizing the release of the tape. Paris Hilton began her role on the The Simple Life shortly after.
Paris is often considered a trail-blazer in the famous for being famous circus currently going on with select jet-setters. Paris Hilton is a high school dropout and model (she worked for Donald Trump's agency). Lately Paris has been the top news in gossip columns around the world for her drunk driving incident. Originally she just received probation, but after doing it again - she's off to jail. Hopefully her strip search video will get leaked on the web shortly.
This is sure to spawn all new interest in what could be the most over-rated celebrity of all time. Sure, Paris Hilton is hot - but plenty of sexy starletts have looks and talent, sadly Paris is only 50% there.
