CAROLINE GAIMARI — Thanks for having me over! What a cool room.
PARIS HILTON — This is my club room, where I have incredible par- ties. I don’t have parties every night, obviously, so it’s also a workout room and an art room, where I paint, make collages, draw, do my designs. It’s kind of like a creative, fun room, which I love.

CAROLINE GAIMARI — What are you working on now?
PARIS HILTON — My main passion is my music, and DJing. I love doing that. My main focus is my business and my brand, expanding it all over the world.

CAROLINE GAIMARI — Then you did other reality shows, like Paris Hilton’s My New BFF, Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend, and Paris Hilton’s Dubai BFF. Why did you do those?

CAROLINE GAIMARI — So the brand stemmed from the reality shows.
PARIS HILTON — My first product was my fragrance. Now I have 17 product lines: I built my entire brand and branched out from there to shoes, clothing, lingerie, sunglasses, watches, jewelry, dog clothes and shoes, stationary, bedding,...
