The series, which was produced to highlight Hilton's more serious and vulnerable side, underscores the importance the socialite places on her family as well as her very few trusted friends. It also calls attention to some of her real-life problems, including her struggle to find any sort of privacy, her run-ins with the law, and her personal safety, which have become more urgent thanks to a series of disturbing and potentially life-threatening home invasions.

Despite these trials, it is difficult to take the narcissistic Paris seriously, especially when she uses a baby voice to get what she wants, and allows cameras to film her while she's bathing. Her focus on materialism, and the catty behavior she exhibits towards some folks, doesn't make her an ideal role model, either. Some folks may get some voyeuristic pleasure from watching her, but overall, there really isn't much here.
