Paris Hilton gained fame mostly because she is a Hilton. Of course, the sex tape that was released in 2004 helped her make headlines as well. Hailed as “New York’s leading it Girl” for her extreme partying in 2001, she is well-known for her modeling career as a teenager, but once again her biggest achievement is being an heiress to the Hilton hotel fortune. She does have her own shoe collection and fragrance line now.
As far as can be seen, Kevin Federline’s main claim to fame is the fact that he was married to Britney Spears. Since he married her in 2005, he has gone on to release his own album, star on an episode of “One Tree Hill,” and model for Macy’s and Lord & Taylor. He has also signed on to be part of a new series next year dealing with Celebrity Weight Loss. Not much of a claim to fame, but it works for Kevin.
