Media career

Sex video and rise to fame

The leak of a three-year-old home-made sex video of Hilton with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon a week prior to the premiere of her Fox reality series The Simple Life attracted worldwide attention in late 2003.[6] The release of the tape led to speculation that it was a deliberate publicity stunt,[7] but Hilton has strongly denied such claims and stated she was "embarrassed" and "humiliated" by the publicity brought by the tape.[8] The sex video, subsequently called 1 Night in Paris (2004) was later released on DVD and Hilton received directorial credit. The film earned three AVN Awards in 2005, including "Best Selling Title of the Year". Hilton originally sued Salomon over the release of the tape, but settled out of court in July 2005. Hilton was reportedly awarded up to $400,000 and planned to donate a percentage to charity,[9] although in a 2006 interview with GQ magazine she stated that she never received money from the sale of the video.[10] The Paris Hilton sex tape Pam & Tommy Lee: Hardcore & Uncensored 1 Night In China DVD cover Tonya Harding and Jeff Gillooly in Tonya and Jeffs Wedding Night A celebrity sex tape is a home video of sex acts, as performed by a celebrity and his or her partner, which...

The Simple Life premiered on December 2, 2003, starring Hilton and Nicole Richie, the adopted daughter of Lionel Richie, and it became a mid-season success for Fox.

The show featured Hilton and Richie working at a variety of blue collar jobs, making out with local men, and performing menial tasks associated with farm life.

AskMen.com - Paris Hilton (1884 words)
Paris Hilton has a knack for attracting attention and always seems to be at the center of things.
Paris Hilton was born on February 17th, 1981, to Rick and Kathy Hilton, making her the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, founder of the Hilton hotels and source of the family fortune -- estimated at $300 million.
Paris' Dad must be so incredibly embarrassed and ashamed of her, but he's so whipped by his wife that he keeps his mouth shut.
