The Evolution Of Kathy Hilton
The Hilton media blitz is never-ending - from the engagement of the Parises, to the break with BFF Nicole Ritchie, or the over-eager appearances on red carpets everywhere, the Hilton name is inescapable.
And now, when you thought their five minutes were nearly over, appears another Hilton - Kathy, Paris and Nikki's mom. From the days of Paris' limited New York City celebrity, Kathy has been trying to get involved. Years later, the Hilton matriarch has succeeded. But was she planning this all along?
The answer is, undeniably, yes. We all know of the stage mom, preening her youth for the celebrity she, secretly, dreams of. But where Kathy Hilton differs is the goal of this preening. Tabloid whoredom.
In 2000, Paris became a regular fixture on the New York social scene. Page Six had a trademark on all things Hilton, her name known to few save avid readers of David Patrick Columbia's 'New York Social Diary' - long before the appearance of a saucy sex tape and a surprisingly successful 'Simple Life'.
But, for those of us following Paris' path for the last five years, Kathy's involvement has always been questioned. Photographic evidence - delineated (in chronological order) below - demonstrates the veracity of our unnerving hypothesis.
Momma Hilton now has her very own reality show - 'I Want To Be A Hilton'. It's a simple premise: we all hate Paris, but we hate her because, at the end of the day, we really want to be her. While that might be true - I myself am guilty of such grotesque duality - there are other reasons for Paris obsession.
