'Russia's Paris Hilton' goes political
CNN ^ | March 3, 2012 | Jill Dougherty

Moscow (CNN) -- In her previous life, Kseniya Sobchak bared her soul -- and a lot more -- as Russia's version of Paris Hilton, a socialite with her own reality show.

One installment of her 2008 production "A Blonde in Chocolate" featured her sprawled on the floor sporting white, stiletto-heeled boots, a slip and a fur wrap, looking as if she'd had a tough night on the town.

But even then, Sobchak tells CNN, she was a closet political junkie.

"During my Paris Hilton years," she says with a smile, "I was always saying that I'm better off in show business and better doing some stuff that people would call cheesy. But I wouldn't do something to betray my political tastes."

And political tastes she had. The daughter of political icon Anatoly Sobchak -- the former mayor of St. Petersburg who helped to launch Vladimir Putin's career in government back in the early 1990s -- is trying to transform herself into a political animal, a talking head, and an opponent of Putin.

One problem with many Russian women is that they do not age well. I knew a girl of Russian ethnicity who looked very much like that at 18. By 30 she had turned full babushka.

I tend to agree, many yrs ago dated a very attractive girl whose parents escaped Russia. 30 yrs later she looks like the WW2 peasant pics you see in history books.

I’ve been to Russia several times and I agree with this, but I think it is less genes and more the ubiquitous HEAVY use of alcohol and cigarettes.

If you look real close, on her upper thigh, you will see a tattoo that says,”LOVE DONOZARK!”

Probably hopelessly optimistic thinking on the 2nd part but it’s fun.

Hilton is odd-looking. You seldom see a straight on front view of her face. Usually 3/4s or so. It’s because her features are not symmetrical. Her eye sockets are outa whack!
