In a recent interview, Paris Hilton was asked if the Kardashians would not exist today without her. She appeared to take some credit for the success of the Kardashian empire.
"It's nice to inspire people," Paris said. "We've known each other since we were little girls and we've always been friends. So yeah, I'm really proud of (Kim Kardashian) and what she's done."
It may be nice to inspire people, Paris, but inspiring people to be famous for nothing significant and hence not contributing much to the world isn't something to be proud of, I think. I for one would not want to be 'inspired' by the likes of Paris Hilton (or Kim Kardashian). There are much more 'meaningful' people to be inspired by, right?
