Paris Hilton wants everyone to know that she’s all natural and not a “dumb blonde.” The former reality star has been hit with her share of rumors over the years. While the heiress clearly hasn’t aged, it’s not because of fillers and Botox – both of which she denies. Paris also wants the public to know that she isn’t the ditz that she used to portray on reality TV.
The 35-year-old recently graced the cover of Galore magazine, in which she opened up about her DJ gig and business, as well as her past. Hilton recently attended Galore magazine’s private party at 10AK nightclub in Los Angeles on Thursday night, Dec. 8, with Nicole Richie’s little sister, Sofia Richie, who is now making waves in the celebrity and fashion worlds, reports the Daily Mail.
The multi-talented starlet is seen on the cover of Galore magazine in a pink silk spaghetti strap dress with a diamond necklace, sheer embellished gloves, a white fur coat, and her Gold Rush fragrance in her hand. Hilton tops off her look with soft waves in her signature blonde hair and a touch of pink shiny lip gloss.
In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Paris admitted that she doesn’t want to be known as a ditzy party girl anymore. Paris has since grown up and now has 17 product lines, including her fragrance line, books, and a clothing and accessories collection. She has a built an empire and wants people to start noticing her as a businesswoman.
“I am a very hardworking businesswoman and entrepreneur, and that’s what I want to be known as now,” she said.
“They said ‘Nicole you play the troublemaker, Paris you play the ditzy airhead,'” she said when she spoke about her breakout persona on the reality show The Simple Life. “We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into or what a huge success it would be and that I’d have to continue playing this character for years. You kind of just get trapped into that character when you have to continue doing it on a TV show.”
Hilton didn’t mind at the time because she felt like she “was in on the joke.”
“I don’t mind because I feel like I really parlayed it into a huge business and it was a lot of fun,” she said. “I think if I was my serious self on the show it wouldn’t have been such a huge success.”
In her interview with Galore magazine, she admitted that she has never had any plastic surgery.
“I’m very proud that I am all natural and have never had anything done,” Paris said. “I am very happy with myself. But I don’t judge others. People should do whatever makes them feel happy. It’s just not something I’ve ever wanted to do.”
The blonde bombshell has been the center of plastic surgery rumors in the past. According to Plastic Surgery Gossip for Celebrities, Hilton has stated multiple times in the past that she has never gone under the knife or has had Botox or fillers. Hilton has been rumored to have had multiple procedures, including breast augmentation surgery, two nose jobs, and lip fillers.
Paris also reiterated in her cover story that she’s not a “dumb blonde.” Although most expect her to act ditzy, she said that they are surprised when they hear her talk about her brand.
“If someone hasn’t met me yet, they automatically have their misconceptions about me. As soon I am in a board room in front of them talking about my business, they immediately know I’m not the dumb blonde they thought I was.”
Hilton also revealed that she’s “flattered” when people call her a pop culture icon.
“I’ve been called that by people and I found it very flattering but I’ve never used it to describe myself… It makes me happy to be an inspiration to people. I am all about girl power and women being fierce and independent. So, it’s nice to see women following my lead and doing things on their own instead of just depending on a man.”
While she is no longer on the gossip blogs or inside the tabloids, she still gets paid to party. She revealed that she has rewarded herself for her hard work ethic by buying herself a diamond ring, which she calls a “good luck diamond.”
