A humble and determined Paris Hilton is speaking out for the first time since her recent controversies, declaring to RadarOnline.com that she has ditched her party lifestyle.
The hotel heiress has opened up in a candid interview about her motivation to conquer a court-ordered community service program.
“When you have been going out for so long, the (party) scene gets old, and I’m moving on with my life and on to bigger and better things,” Paris said, speaking exclusively to RadarOnline.com.
The socialite, 29, who recently avoided jail, has vowed to give back to the community, beginning with a series of donations last week to a children’s charity.
“My community service is really important to me,” Paris said.
“This week I started and we went down and got a bunch of pumpkins at the pumpkin patch and carving tools and paint, candy and a piñata and did a lot of fun things for the kids.”
Hilton and boyfriend Cy Waits even drove down to Los Angeles notorious Skid Row where she worked with a local rescue mission.
The animal lover also plans to work at a shelter in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, as part of a judge’s order to complete 200 hours of service.
“It’s something I enjoy doing and it’s important to give back,” Paris said.
As RadarOnline.com revealed, Paris’ life has undergone some drastic change – none more important than acting as a step-mom-of-sorts and role model to her beau’s seven-year-old daughter Shae.
“I’m so happy,” Paris declared to RadarOnline.com.
“Cy is an amazing man… He is one of the kindest people I have ever met in my life and he is my best friend.
“We are inseparable, we are always together.”
It’s been a dramatic start to the couple’s blossoming romance after Cy, a nightclub tycoon, leapt to Paris’ defense and fended off an intruder at her Beverly Hills mansion.
Cy immediately grabbed his gun and ordered the man, who had been peering through a window while carrying two knives, to lay on his stomach until cops arrived.
Paris told RadarOnline.com of Cy, “He is just so loyal and that is something that is so important to me in a relationship because you can be with someone and not trust them and just have a bad feeling, but with him I never have to worry.
“I just feel very blessed that I found him.”
The stylish blonde, who is the eldest of four children born to parents Richard and Kathy Hilton, has also teamed up with her mother in a unique concept to give back even more.
Giving RadarOnline.com a behind-the-scenes tour of a new Beverly Hills store, Designer Archives, Paris revealed how Kathy is selling vintage designer clothes – even some of Paris’ own – and donating the proceeds, expected to be tens of thousands of dollars, to worthwhile causes.
This month, the Hiltons plan to hand over a sizeable check to a charity for breast cancer.
“I have a lot of clothes, and shoes and jewelry and purses and everything that I just wanted to donate,” Paris said.
“It’s for a great cause and I think that people will really enjoy it.”
The Designer Archives is located at the Beverly Glen Mall in Los Angeles. You can see more of Paris’ exclusive interview on RadarOnline.com this week.
