Slide 1 of 3 | View On One Page

Everything Kim Kardashian knows she learned from Paris Hilton. These two go way back. They were really good friends when they were kids and, during their 20s, Kim was actually employed by Paris. She was the heiress’ closet organizer! It didn’t take her long, however, to go from employee to best friend. Back in 2006, Kim went everywhere with Paris. It all seemed to come to an abrupt end when “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” debuted. Suddenly these two former friends were in direct competition with each other! These two have had similar careers, so we want to know who has worked the spotlight better – Kim or Paris? Vote at the end to let us know!

They Both Have/Had Reality TV Shows

Both Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian have been involved in numerous reality TV shows. Hilton was on “The Simple Life,” “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” and “The World According to Paris.” The most popular of these shows was “The Simple Life.” It was a huge hit. For the first episode, 13 million viewers tuned in. It was during this show that many people first developed an interest in the heiress. She was beautiful, vacuous and ridiculously wealthy. While people may have liked “The Simple Life,” they didn’t like “The World According to Paris.” It was canceled after only one season.

Kim Kardashian seems to have been inspired by Hilton’s success with reality TV. In 2007, she and her family decided to try their hand at it by launching their own reality TV show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” This show was an instant hit and became so popular that it has spawned numerous spin-offs, including “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” “Khloe & Lamar” and “Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons.” “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is going on its 10th season and it doesn’t look like it is anywhere close to slowing down.

They Both Love Famous Men

Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are both into famous men. Since she first became famous, Hilton has always dated men who are less famous than she is. Some of her more notable boyfriends include Nick Carter, Stavros Niarchos, Doug Reinhart, Cy Waits and River Viiperi. None of these guys, with the exception of Carter, were ever that famous before they started hooking up with Hilton and, once they broke up, many of them just faded back into oblivion. We think it safe to say that the heiress wants to be the star of the show, which means that all of her boyfriends better be okay with playing a supporting role.

Kim likes her men to be more famous than Paris does and has demonstrated that she has a thing for athletes. Since she’s become famous she has dated NFL pros Reggie Bush and Miles Austin, and NBA player Kris Humphries, who she married. None of these relationships worked out, so she hooked up with rapper Kanye West, who reportedly has always had a thing for her. These two are now married and being with West has brought Kardashian as close to the A-list as she’s ever been. Can Hilton say that she’s been on the cover of Vogue? Kim now can!
