Kathy Hilton, onetime actress and mother of Paris, the pampered star of hit reality-sitcom The Simple Life, will star in a new reality-competition series called I Want To Be a Hilton. The new series, to be co-produced by major reality-TV production house Endemol USA and the Hiltons (Kathy and hubby Rick), reverses the premise of The Simple Life, as 14 young contestants are taught by Kathy how to fit into high society while they vie for the chance at winning at \$200,000 trust fund, a new apartment, wardrobe and the opportunity to live like a Hilton for a year. Each week Hilton eliminates those who can't cut it in the high society lifestyle.
