While the world is still reckoning with how it treated Y2K women celebrities like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, some of those celebrities are reclaiming their time. Paris Hilton, famous for entertaining viewers in doing the most mundane things (i.e. The Simple Life), takes on her next challenge: the kitchen. The new show “Cooking With Paris” will be a spin off of a traditional cooking show, but with the caveat that Hilton isn’t a trained chef, nor does she know her way around her own kitchen. Some fans might recall season 4 of the Simple Life, in which she famously used a clothing iron to cook quesadillas.

The show was inspired by a viral YouTube video of her making a lasagne, which currently has 5 million views. However this series will be clad with six half-hour episodes of Hilton and her celebrity friends navigating the kitchen with foreign ingredients and appliances as she learns how to sauté, sear, and zest. Netflix said that she will show off her “culinary expertise (or lack thereof), glam kitchen wardrobe and party-throwing skills with some of her fab celeb friends.”

As far as Hilton’s career goes, it seems that projects are ramping up. This year she launched her own production company called Slivington Manor Entertainment and signed a new deal at Warner Bros. She also has a new wedding reality show with Peacock, which she will executive produce, called “Paris in Love.” The show documents her life as she prepares to wed with venture capitalist Carter Reum. 

While people all over the world got to know Paris via tabloids and paparazzi pictures, the real Paris Hilton was stifled along the way. However in 2020, Hilton released a YouTube documentary, “This is Paris,” which revealed a more vulnerable and human depiction of the mega-star. The show discussed her childhood trauma and the character she created to deal with it. The documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2020.

The first season of Cooking with Paris premieres Aug. 4 on Netflix.
