She's not worried about keeping up with the Kardashians!

While Paris Hilton may no longer be as big a celebrity as reality stars like former BFF Kim Kardashian, the 30-year-old heiress claims she's the pioneer of being famous for a lifestyle.

"There's so many people out there who try to imitate what I do, but I am the original," she told The Associated Press. "There is nothing like me."

A fellow Hollywood socialite from birth, Hilton grew up with Kardashian, also 30, and served as a mentor for her buddy, taking Kim to her first Hollywood parties. As previously reported, Hilton flew into a rage last August when the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star ignored her at a Las Vegas bash. "It was jealousy," said an insider.

While the girls made up at an Oscar party last month, Kardashian told Harper's Bazaar of their friendship. "There comes a point in life where you just grow apart and you realize you're not as similar as you thought."

Still, Hilton, who was promoting her new shoe collection (the latest addition to her 17 product lines including handbags, fragrances, and clothing), went on to say that she's exactly where she wants to be professionally.

"I have done everything that I wanted to do and I feel very blessed that I have been very successful in every area," she said. "So it's very exciting. There is nothing else to do!"

Claiming to have the "best fashion sense," Hilton added, "The girls all love my style. When they buy my products they can be like me!"
