This Is What Paris Hilton Thinks of Kim Kardashian’s Quest to Become a Lawyer

Paris Hilton has been in the spotlight all her life and is still one of the top-earning celebrities in the world.

Hilton is part of a wealthy family but is also no slouch herself, with perfume lines, a DJ career, and an almost-continuous roster of high-powered projects. Paris Hilton is also credited with introducing the world to Kim Kardashian.

Their friendship has spawned countless memes and hours of fan discussion, and recently, Hilton made headlines when she gave her thoughts on Kardashian’s new career path as a lawyer.

How did Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian become friends?

The Hilton-Kardashian friendship goes back decades, and reportedly, the two became friends when they were still in middle school. They started hanging out even more as they became teenagers, with Kardashian popping up frequently on Hilton’s reality show with Nicole Richie, The Simple Life.

Kardashian and Hilton were photographed together on many red carpets and nights out, and many people first became aware of Kardashian when it was revealed that she helped to organize Hilton’s massive closets. Of course, Kardashian started receiving notoriety of her own when Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in 2007.

Somewhere along the line, Hilton and Kardashian lost touch, and while the two women have always denied reports of a feud, it seems as though something definitely muddied the waters between the two former BFFs. However, they were still spotted together infrequently over the years, and when asked about Kardashian in 2015, Hilton said that she was “proud” of her former friend. 

In early May 2019, Hilton surprised everyone by revealing that she was working on a project with Kardashian – and that they had been working on a music video for a new song of Hilton’s called “My Best Friend’s Ass.”

The response to the song (and to the two reality stars working together again) has been monumental, and it’s clear that fans still love seeing the two of them together.

Why does Kardashian want to become a lawyer?

While Paris Hilton has been steadily building her empire of fragrance and accessories, Kardashian has also been working on her own projects. In addition to raising a family with her husband Kanye West and filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian recently revealed that she is studying to become a lawyer. 

Kardashian has gotten involved with criminal justice reform over the past several years and has said that she’s passionate about using her platform to try and do some good in the world.

Kardashian has been studying hard with the goal of taking the bar exam in 2022. However, not everyone is on board with her lofty goal, and some critics have spoken out, saying that the reality star is a disgrace to “real” lawyers and that she should stay in her lane. 

What does Paris Hilton think about Kardashian’s goals?

Paris Hilton definitely seems to support her friend’s impressive plan. During a recent interview, Hilton was asked to give her thoughts as to whether or not Kim Kardashian would make a good lawyer, and Hilton’s response was immediate.

She praised her friend, saying that she’s going to be a brilliant lawyer, and has already made a positive difference in many people’s lives. She went on to call Kardashian brave for pursuing a career in the law field, and that she really admires how passionate Kardashian is about her new career path. 

It seems that no matter what drama Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian have gone through in the past, they are mature enough to have grown past it and to realize that some friendships can truly last for a lifetime.
