How did Paris Hilton get famous?

The Hilton name was already famous for its ownership of the major hotel chain, but Paris brought a new sparkle and a lot of personality to the family name. She was the ‘it’ girl who knew where all the hot spots were and was the first to discover the places everyone would want to be. Fans couldn’t get enough of the insight into her life on her reality TV show, The Simple Life with bestie Nicole Richie. 

She isn’t just an influencer and TV personality, though. The “Good Time” singer also has her own multi-billion-dollar company, Paris Hilton Entertainment, selling everything from apparel to fragrances and cosmetics. IMDb reports that by 2011, she earned the title “Billion Dollar Entrepreneur” by Variety.

Although the global star has often played the role of ‘ditzy blonde’ in the past, she’s actually a very smart and compassionate person. Most recently, her birthday wish to fans on Twitter read, “[My wish is] to see a world where we listen more & judge less, where we make decisions only after seeking the truth & really listening, where we speak up instead of keeping silent.”

Who is Carter Reum?

According to People, Paris Hilton’s fiancé Carter Reum is a longtime friend of the Hilton family, who is originally from Chicago. Reum attended Columbia University, and went on to start the venture capital firm M13. Reum is also an author and entrepreneur, and him and his brother Courtney co-founded the liquor brand VEEV Spirits. As far as Hilton and Reum’s adorable love story, it seems it started with kisses on the Hamptons’ tennis court for Thanksgiving.

“Ever since the moment we locked eyes, I knew there was something special about you. And then when we had our electric kisses on the tennis court, I saw that I was exactly right,” Paris wrote on her Instagram for their 13-month anniversary. “I will always be so grateful that I went to the Hamptons for Thanksgiving.” Paris Hilton wrote on her website “With Carter by my side, I know that anything [is] possible. He accepts me for who I am and encourages me to show my true self. I’m eternally grateful to have him in my life.”
