Keep in mind, THIS is Kathy Hilton.
First of all, nice dress, Rainbow Brite. Second of all, celebrity is a curious thing. When I was just a young fourth grader, while other girls were dreaming of being teachers, or nurses (or doctors, fine, it was the 90s), or champion figure skaters when they grew up, I wondered what it would be like to be famous. I wondered what my parents would say when I had my first nude scene, or maybe posed in few clothes for some magazine spread. But it's pretty hard to imagine what it's really like. Take Paris Hilton for example. She starred in "One Night in Paris", her homemade sex tape with Rick Solomon, her boyf at the time, which went on to be sold commercially all over the world. She even bought a copy herself. One would think she'd be a tad embarrassed that this very personal video became public property, especially being the heiress to a well-known hotel chain. Or that her parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, would make a statement that their daughter didn't know she was being filmed or something, or at the very least, pretend it didn't exist. But no, they embraced it and are actually proud of their daughter, though they're among three on the planet who are proud of her, Paris herself included. From Hollywood Rag:

"Paris Hilton's mother is proud of her daughter's homemade sex tape, according to a new biography. Biographer Jerry Oppenheimer claims that while researching his book 'House of Hilton' he found that 25-year-old Paris' parents, Rick and Kathy, were not fazed when 'One Night In Paris' was leaked onto the internet, and eventually released as a DVD, without her permission. He is quoted by the New York Daily News newspaper as saying: "I have family sources telling me that Rick and Kathy Hilton are proud of everything Paris has done, including the X-rated video that launched her to this international stardom, infamy and fame. It is a bizarre family. Behind the scenes her parents were not opposed to the video because that totally launched her."

Wow. They're a new kind of rich trash.
