Why Hate Paris?

Credit:

Has Paris Hilton affected your life in any way? Has Paris Hilton caused physical or emotional harm to you? Could it be that she is at fault for global warming or possibly the war in Iraq? Surely she’s responsible for Katie Couric’s low ratings or the VA Tech massacre. She would have to be at fault for one of these things or at least something to warrant the kind of hatred aimed at her in recent weeks.

Every single television program from the early morning to late night has called her a “horrible person” and expressed the hope that in addition to serving a full jail sentence that she also be harmed by other inmates. The question I have is why is the hatred for Paris so personal? I think its safe to say her DUI should from now on be referred to as “The DUI heard round the world.”

If Paris is hated this much, why not Lindsay Lohan? Britney Spears? Let’s take a look at what Paris Hilton is actually “guilty” of in the first place. A few years ago a sex tape was released by her ex-boyfriend Rick Soloman without her permission which earned him $5,000,000 and Paris $0. However, the tape did catapult Paris to world wide fame which has allowed her to make “Paris Hilton” a brand name. To me, that is taking what was a humiliating situation and making something good come of it. Rick tried to ruin her life and make millions in the process, but in reality Paris got the last laugh.

Before Paris was famous she earned a living as a model, contrary to the popular belief that all her money is from her parents. Since the sex tape incident several years ago Paris has made millions of dollars all on her own. She has a fragrance line, jewelry line, reality show, and had a role in the horror film House of Wax as well. She is also regularly paid anywhere from $250,000 to $1,000,000 to make appearances all over the world at nightclubs and hotels. If someone offered you $1,000,000 to make an appearance at a club wouldn’t you do it? In 2006 Paris Hilton earned an estimated $325 million dollars which is more than Jennifer Lopez, and scores of other high power celebs. She earned every penny of that money and her parents had nothing to do with it.

So why then does the media continue to portray her as the closest thing to the devil that we have on earth? I continue to see those in the media positively giddy at the prospect of seeing Paris in jail. Paris Hilton is one of the most successful women on the planet and she’s only 26. There is no question that she should be punished just like anyone else for breaking the law, but in this instance she was given a sentence much harsher then a normal person would have received. For some reason people start to salivate at the idea of “bringing down” Paris Hilton, and I personally think it all boils down to jealousy and envy. The judge who sentenced her received a standing ovation from his church congregation when he attended services just a couple of days after the sentencing.
No matter what line of work your in, when you become successful there are always people that want to bring you down. Normally this is only done by a select group of “haters” who’s sole purpose in life is to hate on you and your success, but I have never seen 99% of the general public and 99% of the media all pile on quite like this. It took O.J. Simpson 10 years to get the kind of hate Paris is receiving and he almost decapitated the mother of his kids and her friend.

The way she has been able to make herself into a one woman enterprise is something to be admired and I think anyone could do a whole lot worse than to end up with a daughter like Paris Hilton.

This article really gets to me in a bad way. What kind of ignorance has been polluting your water, sir? Paris Hilton is not hated because of her success or the money she has. She is hated by the general public because she is living proof that you do not have to work hard to become rich. She did not get her start as a model. She got her start from being a rich girl before lifting one finger to do any work. The woman is extremely lacking on intelligence and common sense. No person on this earth should be allowed to be so dumb and become so rich. Are we jealous? YES, we are very jealous that she gets to be so lazy and make so much money. We do not hate her just for the money alone. I do not hate Bono of U2. He is great person and also has lots of money. My point is simply this; Paris Hilton is a bratty and stupid little girl and does not deserve the luck she has had in her life. That is why we hate her.

I don't hate Paris Hilton, I hate what she stands for. Pampered, priviledged and obviously above the law. If the common man broke the law repeatedly as she did they'd be sitting in the clink having their "nervous breakdown" while the guards drank coffee and read the paper. Paris hasn't done one single thing that benefits society in any way. She's taken her gradnfather's hard earned legacy and turned it into a booze soaked, sex taped, no underwear wearing debacle.

To begin with, I don't JUST hate Paris Hilton. I hate everyone you listed in that article equally, not to mention those you didn't. disillusioned brings up a good point, as well I suppose, I hate what they stand for. And to you SavageLettuce, I say AMEN. There's so much anyone has said, there's so little left for me, but I'll do what I can. "Paris Hilton is one of the most successful women on the planet and she’s only 26." And what did SHE do to receive that distinction? Now I asked you what SHE did, not what her NAME did. SHE starred in a home-made porno. What a distinction. That kind of claim to fame makes me feel very morally and ethically proud to support this "woman" (little spoiled girl). You may defend her morality on this accusation, but I ask you--what kind of non-deviant tapes their sex? When you come from a family like Ms. Hilton (which, might I add, is the only way anyone even knew she existed PRIOR to this fiasco), that's blackmail waiting to happen. It's also slightly ironic, and rather naive of you I think, to believe that Paris didn't see ANY money for that sex tape...and even if she didn't, she received adequate compensation, because our society eats things like that up. Not to mention the bleeding hearts like you, sir, who elevate these "victims" to this celebrity status. SHE earned all that money, sir? Let me tell you right now, she didn't do a DAMN thing to earn any of that. Where are my sources, you may ask? To that I reply, where are YOURS, sir? Believe me, she has a body of executives, lawyers, and business majors to handle her new perfume line/clothing line/sex toy line...that last one just being conjecture on a future product. She wouldn't want to miss out on any of that excessively important party time to empty her purse so there's room for her Sidekick, right? If she even used that jewel-encrusted glorified cell-phone more than once, instead of putting that money to something friggin' worthwhile. "It took O.J. Simpson 10 years to get the kind of hate Paris is receiving and he almost decapitated the mother of his kids and her friend." First, let's not compare a "supposed" murderer to a snobby, uptight, spoiled rotten valley girl. Secondly, as far as I knew, everyone who hated O.J. back then still hates him. And in regards to the harshness of her sentence, has it ever occured to you that this "excessively harsh sentencing" occurs to thousands of people every day? I feel it's unfair, sir, that you are isolating Paris Hilton's sentencing in this particular case, when there are hundreds of fathers, DAILY, who are more fit to raise their children than the mothers, who lose cases based on trivial, meaningless considerations, much like I'm sure you feel were a factor in Ms. Hilton's case, as well as other DUI cases that are treated negatively because of a label slapped on someone in a certain community. For shame, sir. I'm also curious as to where you get your percentages, sir. 99% of the general populace AND 99% of the media!? You'd think this would supercede the importance of the Iraq war with numbers like that! Hence, my skepticism. And finally, sir, please do not pander to this woman's already hugely inflated ego simply because you "begin to feel a bit odd" whenever you look at her. This "article" (personal blog entry masquerading as a news bite) is a thinly veiled, sad, poorly-contemplated love letter to Paris Hilton.

>I DO hate Paris Hilton, regardless of the fact that I have never personally met her, specifically because she embodies everything that is wrong and disgusting in this society. What exactly are those wrong and disgusting things about your society? >Here is a person who has been given every privilege and opportunity in the world and does absolutely nothing but flaunt and abuse those privileges. Despite your choice of words, i.e, "flaunt" "abuse" , it is her rightful prerogatives to decide what to do with her privilege, her opportunity, her money, her life. >She does not contribute to society in any positive fashion, she behaves (and is evidently not mistaken) that she is above all parameters of social norm such as law and accountability, and belives that her status and wealth entitle her to, well, everything. Perhaps she doesn't contribute positively to society but there are people much more worse than her, e.g. the 5 persons who tortured and slayed Mr. Christopher Newsom and Ms. Christian Shannon. I agreed that Paris evidently thought she is above the law, she is now learning that she is not. Once out of jail, she must be extra cautious because not only that she is not above the law but also she will again be punished indisproportionately to her crime if she ever break the law again. >For the record, Lindsay and Britney behave the same way and I equally disdain them as well. I do not begrudge those their wealth and noteriety when it is earned/appreciated and when the person recognizes that they are incredibly lucky and so gives back to society in positive ways. Why is that the "society" has the right to demand something from those "incredibly lucky people"? Had not those incredibly lucky people paid their taxes already? >Do I hate Bill Gates? No. Oprah? Nope. And these people are richer than Cresus. Why not? Because they worked hard and do their fair share to help those less fortunate. Plus, they don't act like out-of-control jackasses and think it's cute. Paris is still young compared to Bill Gates or Oprah, she maybe rich and successful but she is clueless and naive about how jealous and mean people can be. In today's PC culture in America, it is not right to hate someone like Oprah, Bill Gates is a more convenient target but so far he had managed not to raise sufficient incidents that can be used as a pretext by self-righteous people to justifiedly hate him. >Of course I envy her money and privilege. At least you have the honesty to admit it. >That alone does not make her a vile person. The fact that she believes herself to be of more value than basically everyone else on the planet does. How do you know that she believes herself to be of more value than everyone else on the planet? what exactly had she done to indicate such thing that you accused her of? >I partically blame the media for infusing her into our daily lives, I partially blame society on a whole for eating it up with a spoon and begging for seconds, and I partically blame her parents for not instilling more virile, respectable ethics in their progeny. I am not an American but from what I read, America is a free country so anyone who doesn't like to see or hear about Paris in the media can easily switch their TV channel. About blaming Paris's parents, will you also blame..no, condemn the parents of those 5 persons who murdered Mr. Newsom and Ms. Christian? I mean, murder is a much more violation towards basic human rights, don't you think? >But mostly I blame her for behaving so deplorably, because as an adult there is not one reason why she should not have learned that nobody on this planet is better than another and that it is HER sole responsibility to better herself as a person and be grateful for what has been bestowed upon her. Of that $325 million she "earned", how much of it was used to better the world at large? Why is it that you think Paris somehow has a obligation to use that $325 million to "better the world at large"? It's her money and unless she got them illegally, she owes no one even 1 cent. >If this makes me sound bitter, so be it. Yest, it does make you sound bitter. >But I for one am fed up with the fact that we continually idolize the Paris Hiltons of the world while there are children dying of thirst in Somalia for lack of clean water. Religious people say that nothing in this world could ever happen without God's approval, I guess you should blame God. >While she blows thousands of (essentially) unearned, undeserved dollars on handbags she'll use perhaps twice and Bentleys she'll crash after drinking too much Cristal, people are living in tenement houses and going to bed hungry. I don't see your logic why you think that Paris does not earn or deserve her money, did she got all those money illegaly? Like mugging people or car-jacking or selling drugs perhaps? >Can Paris Hilton change the world? No. Even if Paris could change the world, is she obligated to change the world? No. >But she can have the decency & sensitivity to stay the hell out of the limelight and not flaunt it in the faces of those who struggle daily for basic survival. Whom do you mean by "those who struggle daily for basic survival"? Those Somalians maybe? And just how is it that she flaunt it in the faces of those Somalians? >This kind of glaring societal injustice makes the veins in my forehead throb. What's your concept about justice? What constitutes as justice? And what constitutes as injustice? After you clarified that with yourself, perhaps your veins may rest.

Do you hate Rocky Delgadillo for his hypocrisy or do you not care because making Paris suffer is an end that justify the means? >And to you SavageLettuce, I say AMEN. There's so much anyone has said, there's so little left for me, but I'll do what I can. Both of you hate a woman who had never done any harm to both of you, enough said. >>"Paris Hilton is one of the most successful women on the planet and she’s only 26." >And what did SHE do to receive that distinction? Now I asked you what SHE did, not what her NAME did. Her looks plays a big deal in her charm, she could have surrendered to sloth and glutonny like so many American have these days, 65% overweight?

Let us believe that she orchestrated the whole sex tape thing to catapult her to fame and that is against your moral and ethic standards but it is not like she is the only female in history that ever made a porn movie. There are other actor/actress who got involved in porn-scenes during their early days when they had not made it big, do you also must hate all of them for that? >It's also slightly ironic, and rather naive of you I think, to believe that Paris didn't see ANY money for that sex tape...and even if she didn't, she received adequate compensation, because our society eats things like that up.

Taliban? >SHE earned all that money, sir? Let me tell you right now, she didn't do a DAMN thing to earn any of that. So let us all believe your claims that she didn't do a damn thing to earn her money but the money is still hers, she got her money lawfully and legally despite your peculiar notion that she "does not earn it". >Where are my sources, you may ask?

So what if she is all those things you described her in above paragraph, she harmed you in any way ( real or imaginary )? she used that jewel-encrusted glorified cell-phone of hers to re-arrange your face? >>"It took O.J.

Secondly, as far as I knew, everyone who hated O.J. back then still hates him. Of course they do, murder is a much more serious crime than all those words you chose to attribute to Paris. If Paris is a "rotten valley girl" then I'm genuinely curious in your opinion about Vanessa Coleman. >And in regards to the harshness of her sentence, has it ever occured to you that this "excessively harsh sentencing" occurs to thousands of people every day?

For shame, sir. So you admit that Paris was sentenced particularly harsher than anyone else. Speaking of slapping a label on someone in certain community, you are exactly guilty of that. Paris is in a rich community and you slapped her with the labels of "snobby, uptight, spoiled rotten valley girl." OK, maybe you'll scream that Paris is all of those labels that you slapped on her but perhaps so are those someone in that certain community that you spoke of. >I'm also curious as to where you get your percentages, sir. 99% of the general populace AND 99% of the media!? You'd think this would supercede the importance of the Iraq war with numbers like that! Hence, my skepticism. It is safe to say that there are more people who hates Paris that those who loves her. I am not an American but I think American government should get out of Iraq and perhaps you should consider to move to Iraq. I think you'll find that country just to your liking, i.e, everyone so moral and ethical (no one is making sex-tape). >And finally, sir, please do not pander to this woman's already hugely inflated ego simply because you "begin to feel a bit odd" whenever you look at her. This "article" (personal blog entry masquerading as a news bite) is a thinly veiled, sad, poorly-contemplated love letter to Paris Hilton. Paris is a victim of injustice, she receives a harsher sentence that anyone else had. The "facts" that she is "snobby" "spoiled" "rotten" are irrelevant, if people does crime then they should be punished only for what they DID and not for who they ARE (white/black/rich/poor/Moslem/Atheist), that's why the lady of justice wears blindfold. Now if you'd excuse me, I've got gorgeous pictures of Paris to drool and wank over.

I think the author of this editorial has a wonderful ''sense of writing'' and makes a strong point about why hating Paris Hilton is useless. I feel that whoever hates Paris Hilton for her actions needs to take a look in the mirror because no one's perfect especially you,so ''STEP OFF'' and leave people alone.I'm not some crazed Paris Hilton fan but I think the attacks made on this woman have been absolutely ''retarded''.Yes I agree she should't be all over my television set and the lead story of every news station but it's not like she's the cause for the rise in teen pregnancies and gas prices if you want to prevent more situations like this talk to those who are most impressionable by this-your children.

The story about Paris being cut out of her inheritance was originally reported in the U.K. and has sense been totally debunked. I spoke with Baron Hilton's reps this morning and they were able to confirm that the story is total nonsense. They wouldn't give an exact figure, but they said both Paris and Nicky will receive somewhere between 30 and 60 million each. Baron also has 11 other grandchildren who will also receive a share of the inheritance and the rest will go to charity. Below are a couple of links that are have reported that the story was false, and I will be posting my own report on my news site later today. http://cnn.comwww.tmz.com/2007/07/30/paris-not-being-locked-out-of-hotel-fortune/ http://www.dailyindia.com/show/161675.php/Paris-Hilton-not-being-cut-from-grandpas-will

Specifically Mr. Jones stated : “Since the sex tape incident several years ago Paris has made millions of dollars all on her own”. Now if I remember correctly, Paris’ sex-tape first out in the internet somewhere around July-August 2003 so to paraphrase the author’s statement : “Since 3rd quarter of year 2003 Paris has made millions of dollars all on her own. In your previous post you stated : “I guess her rich/powerful daddy who doesnt give her any money, couldnt have possible known anybody who could have helped her get her to get her start in modeling, "etc." From what I read, Paris started her modeling career before her sex-tape circulates in the internet. If you were strictly speaking that surely at some points during her whole life Paris received some help then you have a valid point but the author was speaking about the period of time from 3rd quarter 2003 to present time. >I am not comparing her majesty to Hitler, you cavedweller, I am also corelating the fact that the author saws we shouldnt judge her based on the fact that we havent met her. Therefore, I wrote, I didnt meet Hitler either but that doesnt mean I dont hate him or his crimes Speaking of correlating the fact to what the author saw, Mr. Jones mentioned about OJ Simpson and did not mention about Hitler at all. So instead of OJ Simpson, why you chose to bring-up Hitler to make your point? I take it that you do not hate OJ Simpson and that you think he is completely innocent and just another victim of prejudice and racism, please correct me if I am wrong. BTW, your (and your ilk’s) hatred for Paris was exactly what bewildered Mr. Jones : “Has Paris Hilton affected your life in any way? Has Paris Hilton caused physical or emotional harm to you?”? >As far as her being a liar, like everyone else...ok. that statment speaks for you and your beliefs, so, because shes a "cutie" and everyone has done it from time to time, its okay for her to lie BTW, just because everyone does it, doesnt mean its right. That statement speaks for the truth, everyone including you and I lying from time to time. It’s true that just because everyone does it, doesn’t mean it’s right BUT since everyone does it then no one should be singled-out for merely did what everyone else probably would have done, is doing it or will do it at some time in the future. >Yes, you go on and drool over that "hottie" that you dont have a chance in hell with, you and a zillion other dudes who will be sorry later on, evidently, pick your women based on what they look like, not their character or ethics. Party on. There you went on your exaggeration rampage again, even if you count the female population out, the world population is no more than 7 billions so how is it possible that there can be “a zillion other dudes”? Or were you also counting in dudes from other galaxies perhaps? OK so I don’t have a chance in hell with that hottie, why should that stopping me from admiring (and drooling and wanking over) her ? I still find her to be breath-takingly cute despite I am well aware that I got a snowball’s chance in hell to be with her. I could have resorted to sour grapes attitude and lie some more “I prefer woman with substance” (for whatever that supposed to mean), my chance with her has no bearing and will not change the fact that in this beholder’s eyes (moi) she is insanely beautiful. Next time before you foaming in the mouth about the importance of character or ethics perhaps you would want to explain why is it you think that dudes who pick women based on look will be sorry? Everyone has character flaws, what is it that hot-looking women as a group don’t have what plain-looking women as a group have?

Krusty the clown had this to say- Her looks plays a big deal in her charm, she could have surrendered to sloth and glutonny like so many American have these days, 65% overweight? Maintaining that beautiful slender look of hers requires tremendous amount of will and discipline, none of which your typical "it's what on the inside that counts" self-righteous obnoxious fat chicks can grasp. EXCUSE ME? Are you f'in kidding me? She earned her money by starving herself so cave-monkeys like you can drool and excuse her deplorable behavior...because she is "HOT" and has a "beautiful slender look?" If that's your standard of beauty and that's what you're into, fine, but that look is not slender...there's nothing too her. Maybe that's just the way she looks wether she eats a tin of fudge every day or not...believe me, I have friends that are skinny like that and they eat like COWS! I also have friends that exercise and watch what they eat yet maintain a heavier weight. If so, that would throw your whole "discipline" theory right out the window. Whatever bro...I see tremendously cute and nowhere near fat people getting treated like crap and screwed by the system every day. All they lack is the last name "Hilton". Yeah...we should all just turn a blind eye to the absolutely HORRIBLE example she is setting for young women everywhere because you need a fantasy for your evening wank. Cause...I really want young women to know that as long as they look pretty they can do whatever they want...just so long as there are chumps like you to lap it up. You, sir...are pathetic.

It really can't be a good idea to get involved in this debate, but as you can tell from my articles I am compelled to pontificate. First of all, I certainly never intended for my piece on Paris to evolve into discussions of Krusty's wanking habits (whatever they may be) although I did get a good laugh out of it. Jen, the very real outrage that you have towards Paris and her looks is precisely the point I was trying to make in the article. I don't think for a minute that your faking anger, I can clearly feel the rage in your writing. The only people on the planet who feel that much rage towards Paris Hilton are women. Women tend to manifest there jealousy towards other women in two distinct ways. The first is by emulating the other woman and trying to get what it is about them you like for yourself. Buying similar clothes, shoes, hair, weight, breasts, etc. You try and give yourself some of the same physical qualities that you admire in the other woman. The second way women manifest jealously towards other women is by trying to destroy them. You can see this type of behavior start in jr. high school and continue on to adulthood. That is why the vast majority of those who calling for Paris to go to jail for as long as possible were women. It had nothing to do with DUI's or anything else, it was about some women wanting to destroy what is seen as an object of male lust. The reason the outrage about Nicole Richie's "punishment" is because Nicole is not seen as a universal sex symbol and the very essence of what men desire (or perceived to desire) like Paris. Therefore, she is not a threat and not singled out for scorn. It's not a popular thing to say, but again its the truth so it must be said. You wrote, "I really want young women to know that as long as they look pretty they can do whatever they want...just so long as there are chumps like you to lap it up." The fact is women can pretty much do anything they want if they look good enough. Men have many advantages, but that is one advantage woman have that is more powerful than pretty much anything on earth. Women who are both beautiful and smart have more power than any man will ever have. Yes, chumps like me and Krusty will lap it up because that is what guys do and I make no apologies about that. Young women should not be fed the nonsense that looks don't matter, because unfortunately and it is unfortunate looks really do matter in life. Women who are smart realize this early in life and capitalize on it, rather than convincing themselves it really doesn't matter.

I have zero outrage toward Paris. I don't know her and she has zero effect on my day to day life. My outrage is in statements like this... Young women should not be fed the nonsense that looks don't matter, because unfortunately and it is unfortunate looks really do matter in life. Women who are smart realize this early in life and capitalize on it, rather than convincing themselves it really doesn't matter. That's not smart. That's lazy and shortsighted. And I dont think anyone said that looks dont matter...they do...obviously. But are they all that matters? She can do anything and its OK because she's hot?Seems to me thats the message here. I'll tell you what...I don't like to get super personal on these comment boards, but I walked away from that very real cash cow because I couldn't stand that my only contribution to the relationship was to be pretty. Many women, both plain and beautiful, need more mental stimulation than "does this purse go with these shoes?" We die a little inside when that is what we get reduced to. I also couldn't accept that at the point that I would lose my "hotness" (thats right, beauty fades), that my husband might leave me high and dry (since he wasn't particularly keen on spending money on MY education). In essence...I chose not to trap myself. Not to allow myself to be pigeon-holed into being one kind of person simply because I was born with a pretty face. What you, and Krusty, and all those who would agree with you fail to see is that we are all doing these girls a dis-service. In giving them attention we glorify their bad behavior because attention is attention...good or bad. And while Im not really worried about them...they can buy all the plastic surgery and therapy they'll ever need. Im worried about the girls who dont have that to fall back on. Who just might emulate these girls because it would seem, based on all the attention they get, that this is an acceptable way to be. It's not for most of the people on the planet and it shouldnt be for them...especially not if your rationalization involves "yeah...but she's really cute/sexy/beautiful." And, believe me, if Nicole Richie did get as much press as her ex BFF Ms. Hilton, I would be just as outraged at that. So...just to recap. I have no anger toward Paris, just the people/media that feed this madness.

Jen, I completely agree with you that looks are not the only thing that matters. I also wrote "Women who are both beautiful and smart have more power than any man will ever have." As far as girls emulating bad behavior I don't really think Paris has done anything that terrible. She made the mistake of drinking and driving like thousands of college girls do all across the country, but her mistakes play out in front of the world. I think a girl could do a lot worse than Paris Hilton if they want to emulate someone. People like Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie are the real problem. They are both habitual drug addicts who have been in trouble with the law numerous times, both for serious felonies. Lindsay Lohan is about the most self-destructive person I have seen in a long time. Are there better people for a young girl to emulate than Paris? Sure there are, but there are also a hell of a lot worse people they could emulate as well. I am not trying to justify bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior, but Paris really does get a bad rap. The extremes that many go to in an effort to vilify her exclusively is just silly. The hypocrisy of the whole thing and all the selective outrage is just so ridiculous. I would have written the same article about anyone else if they were being savaged unjustly in the media the way Paris was. The way the people of L.A. all united like a lynch mob to ensure Paris served every damn day of her jail sentence for such a petty offense was disgusting. We know now the city attorney who prosecuted Paris is the biggest hypocrite of all. He called a press conference to express his anger over Paris being released early, while his own wife had active warrants for having no insurance, driving on a suspended license, and other stuff. Guess what, she did no jail time and paid a $300 fine. If people want lengthy jail sentences for Paris's petty offense, then they should demand them for everyone. But they don't because it was never about her crimes in a courtroom, it was about her perceived crimes in the court of public opinion. It was about people acting like haters and wanting to destroy someone because they look better or have more money.

>Krusty Killer Klown said : Her looks plays a big deal in her charm, she could have surrendered to sloth and glutonny like so many American have these days, 65% overweight? Maintaining that beautiful slender look of hers requires tremendous amount of will and discipline, none of which your typical "it's what on the inside that counts" self-righteous obnoxious fat chicks can grasp. EXCUSE ME? Are you f'in kidding me? NOOOOO, I’M NOT F’IN KIDDING ANYONE. >She earned her money by starving herself so cave-monkeys like you can drool and excuse her deplorable behavior...because she is "HOT" and has a "beautiful slender look?" Even if she did, as you ludicruously claimed, "starve herself" she hurt no one but herself. And what exactly this "deplorable behaviour"” of hers that you foaming in the mouth about? If you asked me, YES IMHO she IS cute, beautiful, slender, hot, gorgeous, ad infinitum. BTW, DON”T YOU DARE link me with cave, OK? I never lived in a cave, I was born in a barn, grew up in a circus tent with green color. At the spring of my youth I lived in a tree-house and at the autumn of my youth I spent my days living under a bridge. Once I was even mistaken for a troll by some German tourists but that’s another story....... >If that's your standard of beauty and that's what you're into, fine, but that look is not slender...there's nothing too her. NOT JUST MY standard of beauty, millions of guys think she IS beautiful, some honestly admit it like Mr. Jones and some who are either crooked or who are scared shitless to be un-PC resort to sour grapes attitude and lie some more "it’s what on the inside that counts" or "I prefer woman with substance". >Maybe that's just the way she looks wether she eats a tin of fudge every day or not...believe me, I have friends that are skinny like that and they eat like COWS! I also have friends that exercise and watch what they eat yet maintain a heavier weight. If so, that would throw your whole "discipline" theory right out the window. Go find yourself other boneheads to congregate with and to lie to but don’t you try that non-sense on me, do you watch those so-called "exercise and watch what they eat" friends of yours 24/7?? What people claim and ACTUALLY do are 2 completely different things, even you, yes even a bonehead like you should be able to realize that in due time. >Whatever bro...I see tremendously cute and nowhere near fat people getting treated like crap and screwed by the system every day. All they lack is the last name "Hilton". Could you please explain by giving specific and concrete examples about how those "tremendously cute and nowhere near fat people are being treated like crap by the system every day just because they lack the last name Hilton"? >“Yeah...we should all just turn a blind eye to the absolutely HORRIBLE example she is setting for young women everywhere because you need a fantasy for your evening wank. Cause...I really want young women to know that as long as they look pretty they can do whatever they want...just so long as there are chumps like you to lap it up. First of all I do my wanking in the morning, well not always but most of the times. Second, please do explain this so-called HORRIBLE example that you perceive Paris is setting for young women everywhere. >You, sir...are pathetic. Coming from a bitter and jealous foaming-in-the-mouth ranting and raving bonehead like you? Not taken. >I have zero outrage toward Paris. I don't know her and she has zero effect on my day to day life. My outrage is in statements like this... “Young women should not be fed the nonsense that looks don't matter, because unfortunately and it is unfortunate looks really do matter in life. Women who are smart realize this early in life and capitalize on it, rather than convincing themselves it really doesn't matter. “ Yeah right you liar, "zero outrage" but obviously not zero enough to not blurt out the followings : 1) "She earned her money by starving herself so cave-monkeys like you can drool and excuse her deplorable behavior". 2) ".....there’s nothing too her". PS: WTF is "there’s nothing too her"? 3) "Yeah...we should all just turn a blind eye to the absolutely HORRIBLE example she is setting for young women everywhere...". >That's not smart. That's lazy and shortsighted. And I dont think anyone said that looks dont matter...they do...obviously. But are they all that matters? Of course looks are not ALL that matters, duh ! Just an example : Oxygent absolutely matters much more than looks, duh! So much for "smart". >She can do anything and its OK because she's hot?Seems to me thats the message here. To your hate-filled jealous little warped-mind, surely that seems to be the message but it is not. Quite contrary to whatever your real or imaginary (but equally mentally-arrested) friends might have told you, Paris CAN NOT DO EVERYTHING, KAPISH? For example, she CAN NOT just walk to scums like sauer or delgadillo or you and start planting bullets into your cranium, well technically she can but she would have to face the consequences afterwards. But you are right about 1 thing, Paris IS hot, that’s hot! She’s hot! >I'll tell you what...I don't like to get super personal on these comment boards, but I walked away from that very real cash cow because I couldn't stand that my only contribution to the relationship was to be pretty. To each his own. Even if somehow you decided that you shall contribute best to the relationship by being a transgender, it’s your rightful prerogative, your call, your decision. >Many women, both plain and beautiful, need more mental stimulation than "does this purse go with these shoes?" And many men, both plain and handsome get pleasant stimulation from looking at cuties like Paris or Nicky Hilton. >We die a little inside when that is what we get reduced to. I also couldn't accept that at the point that I would lose my "hotness" (thats right, beauty fades), that my husband might leave me high and dry (since he wasn't particularly keen on spending money on MY education). In essence...I chose not to trap myself. Not to allow myself to be pigeon-holed into being one kind of person simply because I was born with a pretty face. To each his own. I just want to comment about the beauty fades part : Not just beauty, almost all things will eventually fade and die. I said "almost"” because perhaps there ARE certain things that will never fade and die or they probably will fade away but will never die. PS : In 1951 Mr. Mac Arthur did speak about it, "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away". Anyway, if such a beautiful woman like Paris will eventually lose her hotness as she ages, imagine what a plain woman would turn to! WORSE! >What you, and Krusty, and all those who would agree with you fail to see is that we are all doing these girls a dis-service. In giving them attention we glorify their bad behavior because attention is attention...good or bad. And while Im not really worried about them...they can buy all the plastic surgery and therapy they'll ever need. Im worried about the girls who dont have that to fall back on. Who just might emulate these girls because it would seem, based on all the attention they get, that this is an acceptable way to be. It's not for most of the people on the planet and it shouldnt be for them...especially not if your rationalization involves "yeah...but she's really cute/sexy/beautiful." Regardless whether his reply would be sufficient to pacify your paranoid mind, Mr Jones put it nicely : "As far as girls emulating bad behavior I don't really think Paris has done anything that terrible. She made the mistake of drinking and driving like thousands of college girls do all across the country, but her mistakes play out in front of the world. I think a girl could do a lot worse than Paris Hilton if they want to emulate someone. People like Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie are the real problem. They are both habitual drug addicts who have been in trouble with the law numerous times, both for serious felonies." >And, believe me, if Nicole Richie did get as much press as her ex BFF Ms. Hilton, I would be just as outraged at that. A hater like you? Yes you would, no doubt, not even the slightest. >So...just to recap. I have no anger toward Paris, just the people/media that feed this madness. Of course you have no anger towards her. You merely harbor jealousy, bitterness, hatred, holier than thou attitude towards her. Poor sweet Paris, many ugly people want to see her fall from grace.

Krusty- I do have a holier than thou attitude toward Paris et al and Im not going to apologize for it one little bit. I have nothing for ya on the rest of your rant. Chris- We just disagree. Yes, If I ever have a daughter I would rather she be Paris than a murderer but...I don't want a vapid party-girl for a daughter either. I dont want a "Girl Gone Wild", and that's what Britany, Lindsay, and Paris are. Thats my story...and Im sticking to it. You can raise your future daughter however you please.
