Louise Linton has taken this week’s Marie Antoinette crown, thanks to her snotty social-media post shaming a commenter for not being as wealthy as her and her husband, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. But Paris Hilton would like to remind the world that for a long time, she was the very soul of decadence. How might she do this, you ask? Why, by giving us a quick peek at her house. Sorry, it’s actually her dog’s house.
Yep, Paris’s pooches live better than you. While you’re tampering with the window unit in your sad studio apartment, her dogs are languidly lounging on a black chaise, basking in central air conditioning. You’ve got a fire escape with a pretty decent view of the bridge? Cool; her dogs have a private second-floor balcony, complete with a wrought-iron guardrail to lean on like a romantic movie heroine. And congrats on that IKEA floor lamp; these guys have a chandelier that drips more crystals than your faucet supplies stray water drops. And yes, naturally, the whole interior is pink.
Linton raised eyebrows by flaunting her exceedingly expensive outfit in a public Instagram post, and then calling one of her commenters “adorably out of touch.” She has since apologized and made her account private, but the truth is already out there, and designers have distanced themselves in a hurry. (For what it’s worth, she and Steve did get a pretty choice view of the eclipse.)
There was a time when Paris’s excesses were the talk of the town, but that feels like a distant memory now. And truthfully, it seems very unlikely that Hilton—or even the Kardashians, for that matter—will ever be able to steal the Marie Antoinette crown from Linton, the Trumps, or any of their other millionaire contemporaries. Why? Because at least you know the socialites are never doing it on the government’s dime.
