Paris Hilton Updates: Guess What the Number One Heiress is Up to Now!

Yahoo Contributor Network

Back in the days, Paris Hilton was the queen of the party girls. Anyone who is currently famous just for being famous has Ms. Hilton to thank for making that dubious distinction into a career. Those were the days for Paris, when she only needed to utter, "That's hot" to make headlines. PH was the queen of the red carpet.

TV show contestants competed on a show named, "Paris Hilton's My New BFF" but she had her own real life buddies. Her stylish array of sidekicks included Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and even Britney Spears. Paris made a brand out of being a brand.

Fast forward to today and all of Paris' old besties are shining. Nicole is a hip, bohemian style icon and mom. Richie's role as a mentor of the show "Fashion Star" cemented her influence. Lindsay has struggled but seems to be on her way to a comeback. She's set to play Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime flick. Brit Brit is about to breakout as an "X Factor" judge.

Of course, the most successful of Ms. Hilton's old partners-in-crime is KK. Kimmie took the Paris Formula and turned it on its head. Paris had an accidentally leaked sex tape and so did Kim. Paris only has one sister. Kim has a gaggle of family members including momager and mastermind Kris Jenner. Today, Kim is a superstar in her own right with several TV shows and ventures from fashion to fragrances.

It's been almost a year since Hilton walked out of an "ABC News" interview. Host Dan Harris asked her if she thought that her time in the public eye was over. He was referring to the abysmal ratings of her now cancelled Oxygen show, "The World According to Paris." He also asked Paris of her former frenemy, "Do you feel as if people like Kim Kardashian are overshadowing you?"

So, what's Paris up to now?

Making Money

Don't cry for Paris. The number one heiress is still raking in the dough. The celebutante reveals that her products have created more 1.3 billion dollars in revenue. Yes, that's billion with a "b." She says that she has 35 stores and 17 product lines. People want to dress, look and smell like Paris and she is cashing in.

DJ Paris

Hilton's official career is currently "DJ." Move over Samantha Ronson. Paris is looking forward to maximizing her music and club experience. She'll be DJ'ing it up from stateside to Sao Paulo, Brazil. She also has new music featuring Snoop Dogg coming later this year. We'll see how that goes.

So what do you think?

Are you still a Paris Hilton fan? Will you buy her new music?

Who do you like better?

Are you Team Paris or Team Kim? Will you watch Britney on "X Factor?" Is Nicole more than Lionel Richie's daughter? Will Lindsay rock it as Liz Taylor?
