I assume they meant "cheek" not "chic" (as in the ass of whatever Euro Douche she's currently balling).

Paris Hilton is a failure at life and only useful as a receptacle for semen. Mission accomplished.

Paris Hilton. The name stirs tabloid pictures and words like "undeserving" and "pink" in our minds.

I consider Paris Hilton a genius in that she's managed to arise to super Pop Culture Stardom doing NOTHING. Which is why I traded a book for this book. I planned to figure out what shot her so far. In that sense I was disappointed. She's not as deep as I thought, she doesn't have a master secret, or secret genius (at least not revealed in this book).

I DID found out some interesting aspects of her...more

Don't ask me why I read this. I don't know other than it was sitting on a friend's coffee table one day. Paris offers such sage advice to young girls. Amazing things like "never wear an outfit more than once" and "Make people think you are dumb so they will help you with things". If only I would have read this when I was a teenager.
I know, I know...I thought it was a fun book. Totally silly - I liked looking at the photos and found it to be humorous. I'm smart...and I don't mind reading books that aren't. :)
the best coffee table book ever. especially if you choose to think about paris hilton as a performance artist, as i do.
Ok first off don't judge, me I don't know why I even read this book I was in college I had a two hour break and I went to boarders and just picked out any book it happened to be this. But you still read it I hear you say I know again there's no excuse for my behaviour but I'm happy I read it because i can warn people to stay away. This is one of the worst books ever written. if you want to call it a book it might as well be a photo album I literally felt my IQ dropping as I read this, the most p...more

There is nothing "Tongue-in-chic" about this book. It's basically Paris Hilton being the insufferable human being that she is. Thought I would give her the benefit of the doubt and buy this book out of pure curiosity but wanted to throw it across the room in disgust before the end of the first chapter. Surprised it even stayed in one piece by the end of it.
If you enjoy people raving about how much of a princess they are and raving about how amazing their life is then I highly recommend this book...more
WORST SHIT EVER. Bought this when I was younger; straight up picture book of Paris Hilton with little blurbs about her life. Waste of time. I give this zero stars.

For years Paris Hilton has been my favorite "celebrity." It is not that I find her life especially interesting, it is because I believe she is the right type of celebrity. Everything an heiress/model/singer/DJ/porn star should be. Republicans dislike her, children don't especially idolize her, not too many people find her attractive. Fantastic! I think it is really unhealthy to idolize movie stars or models that seem "normal" almost someone you could easily be. Bad for the self-esteem. Better to...more

I loved the Simple Life and I wanted to give Paris the benefit of the doubt. She's beautiful and I liked her show, so why should I hate her instantly?

The writing lived up to my expectations. It was clearly written by a girl who isn't incredibly versed (or perhaps by her ghostwriters). However, I did find myself agreeing with minor quotes like, "Accept free stuff. If people want to give it to me, why shouldn't I take it?" and "When I see people in embarrassing situations, I never laugh at them be...more

She really is smarter than I thought.

This book was stratigically planned and produced to uphold this manifested image that she's a brainless blonde with no ambition.

The people who fell for this and find themselves angry or much more amused are the successful outcome of her genius product. As we speak, Hilton is rolling in your cash with her production team near by celebrating with some champagne and giggling about how easy it is to fool a crowd of critics who also wish to uphold this manifested...more
Anyone who dislikes Paris for being vapid, superficial, or fake has been totally duped. This book proves just how much she is "in on the joke." Why was she the first reality-star celeb, the original Kim Kardashian? Because she knew what the public wanted and she gave it to them, on her show and then in the endeavors that followed. She knew that she was a symbol of excess wealth and oblivious airheadedness, and she lived up to that expectation. She's not dumb, she's smart. She's never going to be...more

Well, I've finished it. I'm scared though- I think I may have lost a few brain cells during the course of the book. I use the word 'book' loosely also.
I like Paris. I'm not a huge fan, I don't watch her (or anyone else for that matter) on t.v., and I'm not jealous of her. But I do like her. I think she gets a bad rap most of the time. Any one of us makes a sex tape and no one cares. She does it and the whole world looks on and has comments. It's, in a way, her fault the world is looking on yes,...more

While the sparkly pink cover and picture book layout may contribute to Paris’s already ditzy reputation, the words inside give new insight. Personally, I am a big fan of Paris Hilton and I thought the book was really honest and therefore shine’s a good light on her. It makes you kind of jealous all the nice things she can buy, the trips she takes and the treatment you get as a star, but also the hard work that goes into it. While it seems like Paris enjoys everything she does, being a star means...more
Indulgent, overstated and unabashedly self promotional, Hilton provides explicit guidelines on becoming an heiress while including hundreds of glossy photographs which could only be appreciated by the most insincere fanatic. While breezing through the shiny images and bullet pointed text, it's difficult to interpret a tone of irony or an honest voice that is mistakenly heard as sardonic. The majority of Hilton's autobiography is packed with lengthy lists of favorite vacation destinations, gems o...more
Ha! I haven't read this book and I'm not going to.Paris Hilton is a cliched snobby dumb blond who had her own reality show to find a bff.
The girl obviously had a lot of help writing this book because there's no way she probably even knows which direction you read a book.
I couldn't stop laughing at the summary, "Can she help it that she was born rich or privileged." or filled with fabulous colored photo's of her. Of coure Paris thought this wouldn't be a book without pictures of herself.

it's PH... what can you expect ;) she's the one who said... if you're happy, wear pink, if you depressed wear black and if you want to stand out and be confident wear white... well, i wear a lot of black but i'm not in depress and i wear pink a lot too, sometime when i'm down to cheer me up...

but i have to admitted that some of her lines are true, and i can agree more, like:
1. always be more important then your cloth... it's always about you,not your cloth!
2. love the stilettos --stairway to hea...more
Confessions of an Heiress is a great book for any Paris Hilton fan! It has lots of pictures, instills confidence and has the power to make you smile :) She offers silly advice for you to be an heiress just like her while giving just a glimpse at the good life. The book is also packed with lots of Paris photos. My favorites were the crazy runway looks. I especially liked the page written by her dog Tinkerbell. Unfortunately everyone can't hire their own makeup artist, afford to change up their ha...more

First off why read a book about Paris Hilton. This woman has done absolutely nothing for society accept look pretty. This book is a waste of print. If you're going to read find the ebook and save paper, because most of you are going to get rid of the book after you read it, or won't even finish.Confessions of Heiress sound stupid, because she isn't an heiress based on what she did. It was what fer father and grandfather did.
A dumpster rescue, people. Tons of glossy pix of her in every manner of dress/undress. Some fluffy bio text. I'm actually glad to have this. Yes I am. She's dumb and hot and I respect that. Hopefully my having and enjoying this might drive a few friends away.

I was hoping to read this and see that she is actually smarter than she appears. I was wanting to find out that she was really an interesting person who isn't as self-obsessed as she seems on TV. Unfortunately, this book couldn't do that.
Wow -- if this book doesn't make a case for wealth redistribution, I don't know what will.
Some stellar advice like to be born into a rich family and only travel in private jets stands out.
This book was so funny and I thought a good way for Paris Hilton to laugh at herself. Very cute book.
Enjoyable in the way people magazine is enjoyable......loved the pictures
& the fashion more than the writing.

i like this book its like a year book of her whole life. i want to do a book like this in the future

I was bought this as a present by someone who really doesn't know me at all haha.

Easily the most influential feminist piece I have ever read. For those of you who doubt Paris, read the recent Forbes article on her. She is an icon that rebelled against the boring customs and rituals of most heiresses. She could have resigned herself to deb balls, equestrian, and an unhappy marriage to a real estate tycoon like most other women born into prestige. However, her disregard for convention has lead her on a winning path. This book is a hilarious collection of anecdotes and tips tha...more
horrible. Didn't read the whole thing, more or less skimmed.
Esmerelda Lee
she is a genius. truly inspiring
I must admit, i wasn't a big fan of Paris Hilton. Well, not necessarily means that i hate her - no, i do not hate Paris.
But after reading this book - an autobiography of the heiress herself - i gained more respect to her. She describes her socialite world in an honest way, there you'd find that she is not just a rich brat in designer's outfits.
Now, before you squinting your eyes sceptically or laugh at my opinion, I think you should just read the book yourself. It might change your mind ;)
