That video has been out for a while. He must have a lot of patience.
He might be Willilam Barron Hilton but not Conrad.
This is the height of irony. Barron Hilton himself was cut out of the family will, as his father (the founder of Hilton hotels) wanted to leave the bulk of his estate to charity. Barron ended up contesting the will after his father’s death and getting it thrown out. Now it looks like Barron is starting to understand the disgrace that can easily come as a byproduct of huge inherited wealth. Barron may want to prepare his own trustee for a will contest as well.
(and for gods sakes wont these people learn to hire chauffers? i take a cab if im too tired for a 10min walk, what about these ppl?!)
Agreed. It stuns me that with all the money they have, rich people still decide to drive to the clubs. Good God they can drive during the day and go limo during the evening. I cannot believe all the celebs that have been busted on DUI’s lately especially.
Time to call in the attorneys and have gramps declared legally incompetent.
I would pay to see Paris the moment she was informed.
More like a silver coke spoon.
really with that amount of money, wouldn’t a limo be suitable for any occasion? i’ve had a suspended licence before and couldn’t drive for two years but when i finally could it was awesome. i was gliding again, but thats not the case with these. if they like, they could rent out their own indy track and floor it!
simply stupid, esp with coke in your pockets and an alcohol level ready to break the breathalyzer. paris wasn’t too bad, lohan’s career is pretty much done. i’m wondering how much jail time she’s gonna get, this is not a light offense.
and btw a day before that arrest i saw that ankle bracelet on her, .. yo that wasn’t for GPS that was for monitoring sweat so what went wrong there?? how come as soon as she touched a drink, her pores didn’t set off alarms somewhere and the rehab people didn’t drag her in?
LIKE ME ;-)
What ever will she do for money?
She’ll have to prostitute herself...no, wait a minute...
>>> ankle bracelet on her, .. yo that wasnt for GPS that was for monitoring sweat so what went wrong there?? how come as soon as she touched a drink, her pores didnt set off alarms somewhere and the rehab people didnt drag her in?
That’s an interesting story. She neutered the monitor by padding it underneath with Saran Wrap. The pores were insulted from the monitor, so it never detected the alcohol. Clearly she wasn’t smart enough to think of that herself, but whoever gave her the idea hasn’t claimed credit yet. Good plan though, it worked perfectly.
Why the hell is the state monitoring if she’s drinking or not? These freaks ought to be free to self-destruct (albeit in controlled environments).
that’s too bad for other grandkids who may not have deserved to be written out.
not to worry!
she’s already established herself as a celebrity.
and some guy will want to support her.
You can just do porn.
It was the best gift he could have given them. Have you ever seen anyone who inherited vast sums of wealth who wasn't screwed up by it? Gramps saw what it did to the skank, he didn't want any of the others turning out that way.
By doing this, he guaranteed that they will despise her, until they come to pity her.
He's a hypocrite.... he has put his money into a "non profit" foundation with jobs for life for his spawn.
Am I angry or jealous...nope. He's done good by me, when I started making a little money I bought 5 shares of Berkshire Hathaway back in '83.
He's just a man, he's an opportunist and plays the system. I have no clue what his "true" beliefs are other than what he does with his money. Charlie Munger is actually an important part of Buffet's success.
Allow me to paraphrase the late Ann Richards:
“Poor Paris Hilton. She can’t help herself. She was born with a silver spoon in her nose.”
what always amazes me is that the very rich ALWAYS have to be seen.
I’m happy to see you defending the idea of Paris Hilton inheriting $59M.
So I guess this means John Kerry crossed her off his list of potential next wives. Too bad, she was kinda cute in slutty, skanky way.
You have a hang up with this because?
It would have been FAR better to see that money spread around by a mindless drunken twit than applied forthrightly by what will inevitably be a host of socialist minded anti-American “pergressive” institutions...
This is definitely one of those “Be careful what you pray for” moments...
I have a rather wealthy friend whose will stipulates that no grandchild will inherit if they either 1) smoke or 2) are living with a partner to whom they are not married.
Folks are entitled to leave their wealth as they wish
Should have been done long ago... of course this guy should have cut off his kids too...
Simple story, 1 man creates a vast fortune, his children who watched him bust his butt to do it, build it to even greater heights... their children who’ve never had to work a day in their lives, drain it, and by the end of their days or their childrens tops, its mostly frittered away.
So what’s the reaction of Paris?
Dunno. Is Paris burning?
Good idea...let 'em earn their own living...
Good idea...let 'em earn their own living...
In yesterday’s Sunday paper, Sears was a advertising a Paris Hilton bag for back to school. I called it part of the SKANK collection. Sears should be ashamed of itself marketing stuff under a low life like Paris Hilton to kiddies.
She sure came across like white trash. I wonder how long the supposed “finding God” that she claimed will last.
Maybe they aren’t much better than she is.
I like to see people earn their money, instead of getting rich on the works of others. I really doubt Paris Hilton has any dreams of expanding the family business, or creatinga new product or something else that is enterprising.
I'm sure they will get over that and ask her to join them in court to challenge the will
People making private decisions to spend their money is liberal? I’ll keep that in mind. (/sarcasm off)
What you are advocating for is an guaranteed entitlement for Paris Hilton. Unless she is a minor and Gramps was her guardian, there is none.
So you proably want to bring back the estate tax then?
They are probably all is rotten as she is on the inside. Or, he didn’t want people to start killing over the $$, so he gave them all the same thing: nothing.
I could not agree more. Even as a college kid, I knew never to have the “stuff” on your person. Let someone else take that hit. Also made sure ALL of the beer was in the trunk of the car (at least.)
And yes, call a cab (dont drive with another drunk) and take the $10 hit for the ride.
I guess I just never got THAT drunk.
Buffet has said that his kids won’t be poor by any stretch of the imagination, but they will get a very modest inheritence considering how much money he has.
So also said Karl Marx
Paris is a Liberal and as such she will spend the hell out of her big bucks looking for fame, happiness and more fortune.
I don't recall advocating anything. Maybe you can show me. For the hard of understanding (that would seem to be you) what I decried was the envious glee that PH was not going to get any inheritance from her grandfather - the "yeah yeah stick it to her!" attitude - that surprisingly many loser freepers show toward the rich. Kind of the same attitude that Hillary and Osama like to cultivate in their core supporters. As far as her grandfather spending his money that is obviously up to him, but I've noticed that most big "charities" with the exception of the salvation army either promote liberalism/socialism or like many faith based ones work to destroy our national integrity by encouraging illegal hispanic immigration.
Is she? I though she was a libertine.
