Okay, so the Neier sisters are a bit of a deviation from the norm in that they're not uber-rich and famous. Their only claims to fame are that their mom is a former Playboy model and Alexis was part of the Bling Ring who burgled various wealthy Los Angeles residents. They almost make Paris Hilton look wholesome by comparison (I did say almost!).
There was a time when it seemed like Paris Hilton was never off our screens, not to mention radios with the success of her debut album. I know I was as surprised as the next person to discover she could sing! Then there were the fragrances and fashion lines which basically had all of the 5 senses covered. She really was all-encompassing! You just couldn't get away from her; to the point where a New York Daily News gossip columnist banned her from his page and the Associated Press had a week-long Paris-free blackout. When the blackout ended she was the first thing they talked about as she'd just been arrested at the time. Her antics, starting with The Simple Life, kept us entertained for years and you can't tell me she is suddenly behaving herself? Or perhaps the short stint in jail really did change her outlook?
However, it does bear mentioning that she is now 29 years old and perhaps heading into her 30's she's decided to step away from the attention she so clearly craved in her 20's. Or is it that her persona reached over-saturation with the public and we now no longer care?
I prefer to pretend that this is the calm before the storm. I like to think that she's plotting her comeback at this very moment to show the likes of Alexis Neiers what a real celebutante is all about. For me, Paris Hilton will always be number one, even if only because she's hot and always will be!
