'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Hilton vs. Kardashian

Oh snap! Paris Hilton’s mom reportedly said Kim Kardashian should thank Paris for her success.

I think Kim and Paris are both tremendous celebrities. People know their names all over the world. They have both built multi-million dollar media empires and major brands.

CNN received the following statement from Kathy Hilton’s rep, on her behalf: "We've known Kim since she and Paris were young girls playing together. We are proud of all that Paris has achieved, and we're pleased that Kim has also become very successful."

Paris definitely paved the way for Kim in the world of reality TV. And while Kim currently seems to be everywhere,  I wouldn’t say one is a bigger star than the other.

What do you think? (Post your thoughts in the comments below.)

We also have a "Showbiz Tonight" exclusive. I am going one-on-one with the comedian who got booed off the stage on the opening night of Charlie Sheen's tour. The night which is now unofficially known as  the disaster in Detroit.

The comedian has some shocking revelations about the chaos he witnessed backstage. Find out Charlie’s reactions as the show was bombing. You won’t want to miss this!

We've also got tons of other big stories on the show today including Kirstie Alley’s dramatic fall on “Dancing with the Stars,” Miley Cyrus rejoining Twitter so she can follow Sheen and Sheen spoofing himself in funny new video.

Join me for "Showbiz Tonight" live at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    Paris used to be famous but Kim has overshadowed her now. Must hurt becasue Kim used to work for Paris.

    Kathy Hilton already said she never said that. It's another lie by gossip sites.

    I am not sure why they are famous. There alot of people more talented then they and smarter. Those people unforunately do not have the rich parents and access to people that can make it happen for them.
    Frankly I do not think they are famous. They sell an image......an image I am not sure of what.
    On top of it they do not make much of a contribution to society.

    Granted, I have nothing in common with either of these women, but I'm a fan of Kim Kardashian. It's hilarious to watch her joke around with Khloe and Kourtney on TV. No, they're not role models–but they are entertaining. In comparison, Paris is ditzy and bland.

    These fame-mongers should really be ashamed of themselves – egomaniacs!!!! It is amusing reading these stories! It really puts a lot of more important issues into perspective.

    What a snot! Maybe Kim stopped hanging out with Paris b/c Paris turned into a cokewh*re! Um that alone will ruin anyones career Ms. Hilton – so take a look at your druggy daughter before you put guilt on Kim.

    They are both a train wreck waiting to happen. I am sick of seeing both of them all the time. Why don't we pay more attention to our troops for awhile?

    It really bothers me how the media has turned on Paris..Kiim in fact was Paris's assistant at one point.I remember when she use to bring her to "The Hollywood Parties!" and Kim would just sit there and take pictures amazed by the attention Paris conquered.It is sad how Kim used Paris to become who she is today.Shes not very thought of as a lady in the Elite social scene,as for Paris,she is known as The Origional!

    the saying "too much of a good thing?" well that's how i feel about the K girls. i'm sick of seeing so much of them.
    in addition Paris has classic good looks. she doesn't need make up to look so lovely. take away the pounds of makeup from the Ks and i doubt they look that great.

    if Kim was her stylist first then mayb Paris should be thanking her for making her look so good. Why do parents say such dumb comments because they are jealous. Isnt there enough fame to go around

    • Your dad

      Why are you a fan? You like over-privileged, no talent white chicks that do coke and that millions of people have seen them blow some dude's knob when they were 18?

    You would be amazed at how many kids want to act, dress and be like Paris and Kim. In my classroom the girls are constantly talking about what happend on Kim's show the night before. It's so sad.

    It's hard to believe that these chicks got popular by doing amateur pr0n, and look at them now...They're still h0s

    You are so right JR – I feel bad even taking enough time to write this about two truly pathetic women. They are a joke and a disgrace to young women and it is time for them to grow up if that is even possible and attempt to get a meaningful life...

    She's right though. Paris perfected the art of being famous for absolutely no recognizeable reason and she's still better at it than Kardashian imo.

    Paris Hilton's Mom is just looking for a few moments in the spotlight. Maybe she should be on Real Housewives of where ever she lives.
