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.

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.

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

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. :)

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

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
Mar 20, 2014 Camille rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
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

This book gives you a look into the life of Heiress celebrity Paris Hilton! Shows you how to be heiress, tells you a little about the Hilton family and Paris's BFF Nicole Richie (not giving anymore spoilers)
I like Paris Hilton and thought his books was pretty good !

Paris, not France.

"Such an air-head", "Does she have any braincells", "God, she's just so dumb"... but is she? Is she really? I think it would take an absolute genius to make the entire world hate you while simultaneously make you mad money.

This book was strategically planned and produced to uphold Hilton's 20-something-year manifested image; a brainless blonde with too much money from mummy and daddy. Actually, her entire public life has been strategically planned so you buy that trashy magazin

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

This. This is what is wrong with America.

I could rant about wealth accumulation and privilege and entitlement and stupidity...but it's not worth my time. Anyway. This book is an exercise in narcissism.

She looks like Marie Antoinette; let's start a revolution.
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.

I mean... it is what it is. That's really a sufficient review.
I picked this up at some point in my mid-teens. I vividly remember the cover, for some reason. I mean, it basically defines the color pink (although... not the best shades, I have to point out). Can't remember the exact situation of how it came into my hands. I also recall reading one of Nicole Richie's books around that time, and I never owned or deliberately borrowed that either, so apparently they were doing a good job of at least

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,

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
Nov 01, 2007 Lisa rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
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

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

"If you have the misfortune of being born into the wrong family, remember; no-one has to know." There's too much talk of clothes and makeup for this to be my thing overall, but I like her attitude. Paris is surprisingly quotable when she gives advice, and she's smart enough to have a sense of humour about herself. Sometimes it's hard to tell when she's kidding and when she isn't. "Never wake up before ten; never go to bed before three." "Don't be afraid to eat fast food as often as you can." "Al ...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.
I said I wouldn't read her book, but now that I've read The Hiltons: A Family Dynasty I am actually curious about Paris Hilton.
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.

If you want to not learn nothing and read a little about paris and her silly thoughts this is the book for you.
Its funny and not serious the perfect follow up to heavy books to unwind.

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.
