Paris Hilton, a model, actress, and recording artist, most known as the heiress to a share of the Hilton Hotel fortune, died Thursday afternoon in her mansion home in Malibu. She was 19.

She was burned alive while making macaroni and cheese. Her mother, Kathy Hilton, said that Paris was not a skilled cook and shouldn’t have been in the kitchen.

“I told her not to use the stove or any other appliance,” Kathy Hilton said. “The maids weren’t home! She had no idea what she was doing!” she said.

Jordan Hawk, a maid working for Hilton, said that she had left the mansion for a lunch break and Paris seemed very content making her lunch while watching the reality show “The Simple Life”.

“I had left for a lunch break, she must have left the stove on,” says Hawk. “The next thing I know the house is on fire and it was too late.”

Hilton started her fame in 2001 when her reputation in fashion sky-rocketed in New York. Her career as a model led to her acting, and later led her to becoming a recording artist.

Hilton appeared in several minor roles such as the horror film “House of Wax” that appeared in 2005. In August 2006, Hilton released her self-titled album named Paris.

Although Hilton was greatly recognized for her singing and acting, it was the reality show “The Simple Life”, that caused her fame to rise. “The Simple Life”, a reality television series on Fox and E! aired in 2003 that starred Hilton and Nicole Richie.

When Richie heard the news that her best friend had died, she expressed her grief and sympathy.

“She had just come back from jail,” says Richie. “The last words I said to her was ‘have a good rest of your life’, you know, like a joke, I didn’t know something like this would happen the next day, maybe it was a sign.”

Hilton had always kept a positive attitude towards her life and will always be remembered as an untroubled party type of girl who made the most out of her life.

In an earlier interview before her unfortunate death, Hilton was articulate towards her view on life.

“The way I see it, you should live everyday like it’s your birthday”, Hilton said.
