I'd say the person who spells it "fakade" is the idiot.

Ms. Hilton is laughing all the way to the bank.

This is, what, the 2nd or 3rd reality TV star from those days coming out and saying everything was a mistake? 

I swear, it's almost like the entertainment industry is run by a handful of mega-corporations who just want to keep selling us the same stuff over and over.

So she's saying going to a behavior modification school modified her behavior?

Still amazes me that in the age of #metoo and feminism that some young female people choose to feign stupidity and upspeak just for the instabook and facegram likes. Pretending to be ignorant and flighty should have fallen by the wayside in the 1950's.
Was never attracted to idiots, and will never understand anyone of any gender liking real or pretend ones.
Smart people turn me on, why I come to Fark is a mystery. (Beat you guys to it.)

Have you ever met anybody who was a little dim, and knew they were a little dim, but decided to lean into it and try to turn it into an asset?  Like, you've got a friend who is a proud meathead.  He makes jokes about how you're always reading books and shiat, like a goober.  And you know he's putting on an act.  But you also know he probably hasn't read anything more complex than a menu since Junior High.

That's about what I think of Paris Hilton.  She may think she was doing a bubbly, Barbie-girl persona.  And looking back, I can kind of see it.  But the bulk of her perceived airheadedness was not that.  I mean, just the fact that she thinks she was a good enough actress that she could even pull of a 24/7/365 convincing artificial persona is pretty good evidence that it wasn't all an act.

Whether or not it's an act, it comes across as infantile and pathetic.
 
2020-09-04 11:34:21 AM  
It was pretty obvious that it was an act.  A guilty pleasure of mine is watching The Simple Life.  It's actually a really farking funny show.  And if you watch it, you know damn well there is no way someone can be that dumb and not be acting.  It's like watching the 3 Stooges.  The funny thing is there are a couple times in the show where whoever they are dealing with doesn't get the act and kind of digs in with the blonde bimbo stuff.  She doesn't really break character, but you can see a different side.

Does she have anything coming out that she can make money off of? Yes? Symbiotic relationship new site gets clicks, her documentary may get views.

Amazing after here how nude leaks and sex tapes seemed to happen as a form of promotion for a couple years

Okay take out all the "That's Hot", rich girl, Bling Ring, partying crap. She's obviously gone through something that was traumatic and it explains later behavior and her processing of men. I know a lot of women who were abused as teens and then went on to accept terrible abusive men into their lives. They don't know any better.

I hope she finds healing.

I am a woman and I love my eye candy. But if a guy starts talking and is a douche and/or idiot, yeah he's instantly unattractive.  So I get it. Personality is so important in attraction.

If the only face you show the public is the one that "pretends" to be dumb, then don't think you're pulling a fast one on everybody else. All you're doing is showing your idiotic side.

Old news is exciting, isn't it? She's a fricking billionaire that's famous for being famous, and people thought she was stupid?

I remember pretty girls playing the "baby doll" kayfabee role in high school. I also remember when one girl breaking character and lashing out at a guy and it was so shocking to me that I never, ever forgot it.

Skip forward a couple decades, and whenever I meet a woman playing the same role, I somehow let her know that I know it's a sham and we usually become good friends.

Game recognizes game. If a person can get ahead in life by being underestimated, they are winning life.

I agree with all of that, but would it kill people to just retype the whole sentence if they want to change one word and they don't know what the original font is?

As long as there's a stranger paying attention to her, she isn't the stupidest person in the room.

Rich and spoiled isn't the same thing as stupid. She wasn't exposed to a lot of normal things, so yeah, she's out of touch and "stupid." I never thought she was dumb, I thought it was an act. And she was young and stupid when she started doing all those things, so that matters too. Just because she was rich doesn't mean that she wouldn't do stupid things--even more, since she had tons of money.

"I was strangled, I was hit, I was grabbed aggressively. I put up with things no one should," she told the outlet. "I had become so used to [abusive behavior] at Provo, that it made me feel like it was normal."

Yeah, so was I, and I didn't even get to go to a special school for it. And nobody ever gave a damn, nobody ever made any special allowances for it, and nobody gives a fark now. Shut up, stupid spoiled rich girl. You did it all by yourself. And made millions. Why don't we interview you about how much cash you've made by acting out your "abusive" childhood?

Haven't we known about this for a while? She's pretty damn smart, but played the vapid ditz for TV. Kinda like how Trump played a fictional successful businessman on the Apprentice.

Sort of like in Bowfinger when Heather Graham portrays a bad actress so convincingly you realize that's actually what she is

...well, yes.  Because 1. She's not a frickin' billionaire, and 2. Just because she has lots of money doesn't mean she's smart.  See the current occupant of the White House.

Just a side note but does a fancy boarding school that a rich kid gets forced to go to really count as a residential school? Or is it just because I am from Canada where the term has come to mean something different?

The place she got sent was one of those "troubled teen" places - think more prison in the middle of no where than fancy school.

There is a cracked article somewhere about a guy escaping from one of those places.
