How Paris Hilton made Kim Kardashian famous

How Paris Hilton made Kim Kardashian famous

She knows the fame game well. Paris Hilton last year liked an Instagram meme that makes fun of Kanye West’s “Famous” music video and suggests that the former Simple Lifestar made the rapper’s wife, Kim Kardashian, a household name.

As many are aware, the reality TV queen once worked as Hilton’s closet organizer and often walked in the socialite’s shadow at club appearances and red carpet events throughout the mid-2000s. In 2008, Hilton started taking public shots at Kardashian, whose fame increased following the release of her infamous sex tape with Ray J and her role on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Despite their falling out (and Hilton’s shady double-tap on Monday), the Confessions of an Heiress author offered some sweet words about Kardashian in an April 2015 interview — but insinuated that she did, in fact, help the E! personality achieve notoriety.

“We’ve known each other since we were little girls. We’ve always been friends,” Hilton told Yahoo Style of her longtime frenemy. “It’s nice to inspire people. I’m really proud of her and what she’s done.”
