Happy 29th Birthday, Paris Hilton!

by at . Comments

Paris Hilton turns 29 today. While she has never been our favorite celebrity, we have come to respect Paris to a certain degree because she knows what she is:

A rich hotel heiress famous for no reason.

While wannabes like Kim Kardashian mug for the cameras, Tweet constantly and do everything in their power to stay famous, Paris just kinda does her thing.

Since her infamous sex tape in 2003, she has marketed herself ingeniously and even cleaned up her image. The airhead bit may even be (kind of) an act!

She's perfectly content racking up millions in appearance fees and product deals and dropping hints about marriage to beau Doug Reinhardt. Not a bad life.

Paris Hilton Quotes

We want to stay together forever. I wouldn't do a Vegas [wedding]. I don't know where or when but I do want it to be romantic.

Paris Hilton [on Benji Madden]

He's my best friend. He's just different from any guy that I've ever been with. I just trust him completely, and I know that he'd be there for me, no matter what.
