Top 10 Pseudo-Celebrities We Obsess Over Too Much

10) Paris Hilton

Might as well begin with the one who started the whole deal. One of a seemingly endless volume of young and attractive Hilton fortune heirs and heiresses, it simply wasn’t going to happen that poor (a distinctly relative term) little Paris would dare lower herself to share the spotlight with the rest of her jet setting, inheritance laden crowd, oh Hell no. When modeling and acting didn’t appear to offer much of a career, Paris did what no other debutante had done before; she made a hardcore sex tape that mysteriously found it’s way into the public domain. This led to a series of magazine and television interviews and a successful reality TV show for her and her equally gifted friend, Nichole Richie, the adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie. Whereas the mere mention of such a thing in days gone by would’ve spelled instant doom, her sex tape made Paris Hilton globally famous and an international ‘celebrity.’ And all without a shred of discernible talent, apart from a shrewd sense of self-promotion by any means necessary. She also unknowingly ushered in an entire era by which scores of young women have done exactly the same thing by the same method with quite often the same result.
