...there are people much richer than her and its amazing that she figured out a way to make millions and millions of more dollars simply because she is rich...


I forgot to mention this, but I really mean it in the nicest way possible. When you get to college, take a sociology class -- specifically one that explains social stratification and class structures. You won't be so amazed after that class that someone born into a filthy rich family managed to find a way to make more money 'simply' because they're rich. Take an economics class, too, and you'll learn that it takes money to make money and the more you start with the quicker your gains grow.

If you think about it, she didn't make it "on her own". Nobody would care about what a "work" day in her Simple Life was like, or who she made what tape with, if her last name wasn't Hilton, and that has NOTHING do do with anything she did on her own. History, and the rules of our society, tell us that the rich will have children who get rich and the poor will have children who stay poor, and very, very, very few people ever manage to cross those lines. It's not amazing. It's blind chance to be born rich and not much more than that to remain rich.

I'm only bothering to say any of this because I'm guessing that you're probably pretty young and I think your life will have SO much more meaning if you look up to people who teach you things that can make you a better person. At the end of your eighty or so years, when you look back at your life, you will regret less if you learn whle you're young that no matter how much money you have, you will eventually die, and it's the people who will be crying at your funeral afterward that will make it all worth the ride.
