For Paris Hilton, turns out it really is a small "World" after all.
The celebutante's new reality series, "The World According to Paris," debuted on Oxygen on Wednesday, and Us Magazine reports that a mere 409,000 viewers tuned in for its inaugural episode. That's a lukewarm reception at best, going by Oxygen standards -- Oxygen's premiere of "The Bad Girls Club Miami" last August, by contrast, drew 1.3 million total viewers.

The series, which focuses on Hilton's various business ventures, promises a warts-and-all look at the hotel heiress' life, chronicling Hilton's interactions with her mother Kathy Hilton and Charlie Sheen's ex Brooke Mueller, along with other associates.
At the NBC Universal Summer Press Day 2011 in April, Hilton sought to distinguish her latest venture into reality TV -- following such offerings as "The Simple Life" and "Paris Hilton's My New BFF" -- claiming, "This show like nothing I've ever done. On 'The Simple Life' I was playing a character...[now] I'm just ready to show myself."
Pity for her that precious few people are willing to watch her show

Selling sobriety the Paris Hilton way
The bottom line is and always will be money and power. Looks are important too but less
so especially if you are male. Weight is also a big deal...Women are judged and "graded" by
their size and are summarily eliminated from certain " circles" if they don't "measure up".
Men want "arm candy". I once had a man say to me when I was overweight and I quote
"Why would I want you when I can get a thin one"? I was floored. If someone said that to me today, I would thank then for showing me their ignorance in advance. Paris is rich, blond, big busted and thin. I don't think she "deserves" more than anyone else but apparently enough people do. It makes me wonder why Kim Kardashian is "worth" a
25ct pink diamond engagement ring ( or whatever huge ring she got) ??...At least I know that my husband loves me and won't cheat because HE knows the TRUE worth of a REAL
woman. You know, the kind ones who can do it all with genuine love...Yes, we are pearls of great price. More than diamonds and gold...At least thats what it says in the BIBLE...
