Hilton donates fortune to charity

Paris and Nicky Lose Inheritance to Charity

In today's news, I'm left wondering if Paris Hilton's Confessions of an Heiress is titled accurately. Paris and Nicky's grandfather, Barron Hilton, announced that he plans to donate 97 percent of his $2.3 billion estate to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.

The largest donation of 2007 came from Leona Helmsley who donated $4 billion to her family's foundation, and upon her death she still managed to leave $12 million for her Maltese. Similar to Helmsley's precious pooch, I'm sure the Hilton girls will be left well taken care of through their existing trust funds.

I think it's fantastic that their Grand-dadddy Warbucks is following in his father's philanthropic footsteps. How do you think Paris and Nicky feel about it?
