Books By Paris Hilton

Updated on October 7, 2011

I was quite shocked to discover that Ms. Hilton had written several books about her most hot life as an heiress, model, mental patient or whatever it is she is overdoing these days. I am not her biggest fan, obviously; in fact I avoid her and anything about her quite actively. So I was honestly floored to find out that she had written a book. Technically, two books, but the second doesn't actually contain anything resembling writing. I would have been equally floored upon hearing news that she read a book. I haven't heard that, for the record.

Paris Hilton's first book, Confessions of An Heiress: A Tongue-In-Chic Peek Behind The Pose , has been called horrible, sad and empty by some critics. It contains many lists of her very most favoritest things like designers, hair products and cities. She encourages her reader to be like her with her list of 12 Things An Heiress Would Never Do .

Some reviewers are quite certain that Paris herself wrote this book. They are sure of this because they feel no other person could possibly be this shallow, empty and completely self-centered.

Allow me to side track briefly: when my daughter was 4 she loved to tell stories and write books. She couldn’t actually write, so she would tell me what to write, and she would then illustrate her books.

I bring this up because I am absolutely certain that this is how Paris wrote her book, with the help of two professional writers, to interpret her deepest thoughts and experiences in to a language that the common American fan would be able to understand. No small task for that team of writers. Really, it took two? So, they wrote it and honestly captured some truth about her innermost being. She picked out the most fabulously flattering pictures of herself to go with the narration.

Your Heiress Diary: Confess It All To Me, by Paris Hilton This one can hardly be called a book, except that it is small and made out of paper. It is sold as a book authored by Hilton, but it is really a lined journal with pictures and a few how do you feel type questions littered throughout.

Now, I know I am being highly critical of Paris, and that is not usually my style. It is just that as a mother of three young girls, as a woman with long blonde hair, who happens to consider herself strong and intelligent, I think she is doing us a huge disservice by behaving in her weak, dopey way, waiting to be bailed out of every situation she can't handle and then using said situations to make more money.

I hope that the world gets bored with her before my girls are old enough to have any interest in emulating her.

If, by some chance you are interested, you can read The Tinkerbell Diaries, an account of life with Hilton written from the viewpoint of her dog.

As if this all is not enough, Nicole Richie has writen a novel titled, The Truth About Diamonds.

      OMG - this is so funny and well-written (OK, so a Hub takes us what, 1-3 hours to write, and how long for Paris to get published). Maybe there is hope for us as authors, after all! Thanks Amy Jane, I love it.

      You suggest she used two writers to capture her deepest thoughts. I rather doubt that she has ever had a deep thought.

      On second thought, maybe she did require two writers, one to capture each deep thought she might have ever had.

      Wow. I didn't know she could read, much less write. I guess you do learn something new every day. Interesting.
