About
Paris Hilton is the grand daughter of billionaire tycoon Barron Hilton. From the age of 19 she was named New York's "It" girl and has rarely been out of the tabloids since- due to her very public extravagant lifestyle and run-ins with the law.

February 17, 1981

Paris Whitney Hilton is born in New York to the Hilton family. As the eldest of four children- Nicky Hitlon, Barron Hilton II and Conad Hilton III, she is immediate heir to the vast Hilton Hotel and real estate dynasty. She is the daughter of Richard and Kathy Hilton (Richards) and the niece of child stars Kim Richards and Kyle Richards. She is also related to Zsa Zsa Gabor and Elizabeth Taylor. Her great-grandparents were Hilton Hotels' founder Conrad Hilton and his first wife, Mary Barron. When Conrad Hilton died in 1979, he left nothing in his will to his children or other descendants. His son Barron Hilton contested this decision in court in 1988 and won. The value of Paris's inheritance has been widely estimated to be between $30 and $50 million.

1982 - 2001

She spends her freshman year of high school in Rancho Mirage, California at the Marywood-Palm Valley School. Her sophomore and junior years of high school are spent briefly attending the Canterbury Boarding School, in Connecticut before transferring to the ultra-exclusive Dwight School in New York. She drops out but eventually earns a GED through home-schooling.

2001

Hilton begins modelling as a child with her first appearances in charity events. At 19, she signs with Donald Trump's modelling agency, 'T Management'. Hilton works for New York and London based modeling agencies. She appears in various advertising campaigns, including Iceberg Vodka, GUESS, Tommy Hilfiger, Christian Dior, and Marciano.

The nineteen year old starts to develop a reputation as a socialite- identified by 'The Guardian' as "New York's leading It Girl" whose fame is beginning to "extend beyond the New York tabloids".

Living the glitzy socialite life from a relatively early age, attending exclusive parties and being followed by the gossip columns, Hilton seems to be addicted to obtaining celebrity status. Perhaps this was encouraged by her mother, Kathy Richards, who had a brief acting career, mainly on TV.

2001

Intent on becoming famous, Hilton spends as much as it takes to make it, whether this is on television or in music.  Her effort includes a total physical makeover;dying her hair blond and using blue tinted contact lenses. She also reportedly undergoes plastic surgery but no amount of money can change what she hates most about herself: her size 11 feet.

She appears in cameo roles in films such as 'Zoolander' (2001) and Nine Lives (2002). She guest-stars in TV shows such as 'The O.C.' (2003) and 'George Lopez' (2002).

2004

Critics believe the endless celebrity fallouts surrounding Hilton are in fact publicity stunts in order to keep her in the press. It has even been said that the online leak of her infamous sex video with her then boyfriend Rick Salomon, was all part of her self-publicity campaign. If it is, it worked well for her. The leak came a week before 'The Simple Life's premiere attracting worldwide publicity in late 2003. Hilton becomes an overnight celebrity thanks to 'One Night in Paris' (2004)

In September 2004, Hilton releases an autobiography; 'Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose'-co-written by Merle Ginsberg.

Next comes a designer diary, also written with Ginsberg, called 'Your Heiress Diary: Confess It All To Me' published on 11th November 2005.

In 2004 Paris is involved with a perfume line by Parlux Fragrances. Originally meant to be a small release, demand is high resulting in a bigger release before Christmas.

Hilton strongly denies the sceptics' claims about the video '1 Night in Paris' (2004) and states that she is "embarrassed" and "humiliated" by the publicity brought by it. As if to prove this, Hilton sues Salomon over the release of the tape, but settles out of court in July 2005. Hilton is reportedly awarded up to $400,000 and plans to donate a percentage to charity, although in a 2006 interview with GQ magazine she denies receiving the money from the sale of the video.

Hilton is again caught driving with a suspended license, this time at 70 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. She is also caught driving at night without headlights. Los Angeles Prosecutors decide that these actions, along with the failure to participate in a court-ordered alcohol education programme constitute a violation of the terms of her probation.

Hilton is sentenced by Judge Michael T. Sauer to 45 days in jail for violating her probation. Initially, Hilton plans to appeal the sentence, and starts an online petition asking for a pardon from California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. In response, her opponents create a petition to maintain the sentence. Both petitions gain tens of thousands of signatures. Paris then changes lawyers, and drops her plans to appeal.

In an surprise turn of events, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca signs orders on the morning of June 7, transferring Hilton to 40 days of home confinement with an electronic monitoring device, due to an unspecified medical condition. According to Baca, under normal circumstances, Hilton should not have served any time in prison, and he adds that "The special treatment, in a sense, appears to be because of her celebrity status".

The same day as Paris as released from prison, Judge Michael Sauer orders her to reappear back in his court the following morning. At the hearing he declines to be briefed by Hilton's attorney in private chambers on the nature of her medical condition and sends her back to jail to serve out her original sentence. However, concern about Hilton's condition leads to her being moved to the medical wing of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.

In a phone interview from jail, Hilton tells Barbara Walters (from the Associated Press) that God had given her a second chance, and that she would no longer "act dumb".
She appears in the 2007 Guinness World Records as the world's "Most Overrated Celebrity". In a poll conducted by the Associated Press and AOL, Hilton is voted the second "Worst Celebrity Role Model of 2006", behind Britney Spears. Critics have alleged that Hilton epitomizes the phrase 'famous for being famous', but she seems to prefer the saying 'there's no such thing as bad publicity'.
