Paris Hilton has said she is no longer interested in reality TV and wants to be taken seriously as a businesswoman.
The socialite and hotel chain heiress, who shot to fame with Nicole Richie on The Simple Life, said that being threatened by stalkers made her question the price of fame.
Paris told The Sun: "I'm moving into the hotel businesses and it feels the natural next step."
She said: "People have never got to know the real Paris Hilton. They remember me for falling out of nightclubs and messing around on a reality show. But that was just a character I was playing. You should see me in a business meeting."
In June 2011, Nathan Lee Parada was sentenced to two years in prison after being convicted of attempting to break into Paris's home.
Paris, who makes a cameo as herself in new movie The Bling Ring, about Hollywood homes being targeted by gangs of thieves, told the newspaper: "There was so much chaos in my life at the time. After the attack I decided it was time to withdraw from the public eye before anything worse happened."
