Paris Hilton says she has met all of her professional goals.

The heiress-turned-TV star, who was in Mexico on Tuesday to promote a new line of shoes, says she doesn't fear being overshadowed by Kim Kardashian or any other reality show rival with her own fragrance, B-movies, sex tape and autobiography, all by age 30.

"There's so many people out there who try to imitate what I do but I am the original," Paris said. "There is nothing like me."

The socialite, who started her career as a model and has tried her hand in movies, fashion and singing, is currently shooting her latest reality TV show, The World According To Paris, which will debut this spring on the Oxygen cable channel in the US.

"The show's everything about my life, showing the business woman", she said.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Paris angrily dismissed questions about whether her life is superficial.

"I thought we were talking about the shoes," she said.

Her shoe collection is the latest addition to a lucrative empire that lends her name to 17 lines of products from handbags and fragrances to clothing.

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