Paris Hilton isn’t worried about Kim Kardashian, Bethenny Frankel, Snooki, NeNe Leakes or any other reality star on the fast track to fame these days.
When asked if she felt overshadowed by her former good friend Kim Kardashian or any other reality-star-turned-multifaceted-brand out there, Paris told the Associated Press: “There’s so many people out there who try to imitate what I do but I am the original. There is nothing like me.”
Indeed, Hilton was the first one to bring Kim Kardashian into the limelight, having the then-unknown brunette accompany her to various parties, events and other hot spots. Then Kardashian had her own sex-tape leak and got a reality show, ultimately building a brand that arguably now trounces Hilton's.
Still, Hilton, who is at work on a new Oxygen reality show, The World According to Paris, is confident about her place in the entertainment industry. “I have done everything that I wanted to do, and I feel very blessed that I have been very successful in every area,” she asserted.
Her plans for the future include a chain of hotels, restaurants and night clubs.
