From the Department of Everything is Awful comes word that Paris Hilton, socialite and possessor of no discernible talent, has earned (gulp) $1.3 BILLION in the last six years.
Yeah, you read that correctly. Billion. With a "B."
The heiress revealed the startling number in an interview with FHM UK (via US Weekly). "I'm involved in my products every step of the way. My fragrances are doing really well at the moment. They've produced more than $1.3 billion in revenue since 2005," she says in the mag's January issue. "I have 35 stores and 17 product lines. And then there's my racing team, my 14 fragrances and my new project, the Paris Hilton Beach Club chain. The first one is opening in the Philippines soon. It's going to have nightclubs, restaurants, bars, gyms. Everything really."
And because that's not disheartening enough, Paris has more big news. Read More...

This year will be remembered as an important year in history: President Obama's inauguration, the economic crisis and Paris Hilton's comeback.
The Paris Hilton franchise is expanding with sophomore efforts from both her TV career and music career. Fresh off of her announcement of a second season of her MTV reality series, "Paris Hilton's My New BFF," the heiress discussed her forthcoming album and the inspiration behind the material: herself.
"I just talk about, you know ... about things that have happened in my life — about friendship, it's about love, you know, about certain instances in my life, and I think that people will get a really good insight on me and how I think."
So if you can't get enough about her life from the TV series, perhaps think of her album as the audio companion to it. So we know what it's about — but what does it sound like?
See Paris Hilton talk about her new album and inspiration below the jump! Read More...
Secret Service dudes. Old white-haired dudes. A bleach-blond president in a cutaway red-white-and-blue swimsuit and shiny, red patent-leather pumps, sipping martinis while chilling at the Palms pool. No, it's not the latest "Saturday Night Live" skit, or that "adult movie" tribute to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin you've been hearing about. It's Paris Hilton's "Paris for President" music video, which will go up on SwaghouseMedia.com on Sunday.
A sneak preview is available now on People.com.
In the teaser, a trio of buff Secret Service agents chant "Paris for president" as the socialite delivers her Kewpie-doll vocals over a thumping techno beat, dropping lines like, "At the Palms chilling with a martini/ Your commander in bikini."
So far, this one looks a lot like the video Paris put out in August, responding to Senator John McCain's "celebrity" attack ad with her own energy policy that frankly sounded better than anything we heard in the actual presidential debates. At least she's taking this whole running for fake president thing seriously. She's already got Charlie and Martin Sheen's fake vote, after all.

A recent MTV News interview conducted by Yasmine Richard turned up this fascinating bite.
Paris Hilton: Actually I just put a recording studio in my new house, so I've been working a lot in there and, um, next I want to do a dance album. I love Bob Sinclair, I love that kind of dance-music vibe, and I'm part of the club scene a little bit, so I think doing a dance album is my next move.
MTV News: So do you write your own music or do you collaborate or how does that work?
Hilton: I write my own music.
I'm not saying she couldn't have penned the tunes on Paris (some of which I've been known to defend against unfair ridicule). I'm just not 100 percent convinced she did.
