Want to be known as busi­ness­woman: Paris Hil­ton

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

So­cialite and for­mer re­al­ity star Paris Hil­ton (be­low) ex­pressed her de­sire to shed her party girl image. She says she is fo­cused on her busi­ness, and this helps her stay away from me­dia gossip.

“I want to be known as a busi­ness­woman. I don’t want to be known as a re­al­ity TV star. I don’t like the way that sounds,” she said.

Hil­ton added: “I am very fo­cused on my busi­ness and when you live in that mind frame, you can stay away from the trashy tabloids.”

She cat­a­pulted into star­dom dur­ing the early days of re­al­ity TV and so­cial me­dia. She starred in sev­eral re­al­ity series, in­clud­ing The Sim­ple Life along­side Ni­cole Richie.

Now, her com­pa­nies in­clude three ho­tels, over 20 best­selling fra­grances, her own line of ac­ces­sories and more. The celebrity-ex­ec­u­tive is val­ued at over $100 mil­lion.

She sees her­self as self-made suc­cess story, and feels she has worked hard to reach this point.

“Ev­ery dol­lar I have ever made, I have made my­self. Yes, I feel very lucky to have come from a priv­i­leged fam­ily, but I have done it all on my own,” she said.
