Will the Persecution Never End?

A Hilton family history.

At home with the Hiltons | The Sunday Mail

LIKE any mother, Kathleen Richards wanted the best for her daughter, Kathy. Where she differed from other mothers was in the way she intended to get it.

She wanted her child to know all about sex and to learn how to perform, literally, so she asked a young man to give her teenage daughter "sex lessons" in his van.

Kathy learned well, and hit the jackpot at the age of 20 when she married Rick Hilton, a scion of the hotel dynasty. Fifteen months after the wedding, in February 1981, Kathy gave birth to Paris Whitney Hilton.

There is a public perception that Paris Hilton is the black sheep of the family. Through the international hotel empire, the Hilton name has become synonymous with class and sophistication. Paris, on the other hand, is the epitome of our shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture; an exhibitionist It Girl, best known for starring in a home-made pornographic video but essentially famous only for being famous.

The Hilton side of the family was not exactly famous for being circumspect in their relationships though. With the notoriety of Paris and Nikki Hilton we tend to forget their great-uncle Nick Hilton, who married Elizabeth Taylor and was divorced for physical abuse.

if conrad could see paris he would give her his blessing as being his only true relative for sheer money-making ability. profoundly indifferent in the face of univeral hatred, only hitler has ever rivaled her in sureness of path and unwavering, unfailing instincts for success. unlike hitler, she will never open a war on two fronts so i suspect she will end her life in total victory over mankind. we should bow to her now voluntarily while we can before she forces us to bow before her later.
