Paris Hilton says realising her beloved dog Tinkerbell had gone missing was like "losing a child"
Paris Hilton's worst moment was when her dog vanished.
The hotel heiress - whose sex tape with ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked in 2003 and who spent 23 days in prison for driving with a suspended licence in 2007 - struggled to cope when her prize Chihuahua Tinkerbell went missing.
She explained: "It was so scary - she was gone for a week and I wasn't sure if she'd ever come back. It was like losing a child. She was a couple of blocks away at an old lady's house. The lady didn't watch TV so she didn't know my dog was missing. Then she saw the sign and I got her back."
The 28-year-old star insists her life is far removed from what many people think, but admits she only goes to parties she is paid to attend.
Paris explained to Tatler magazine: "I'm a brand. I'm a businesswoman. I do everything - I act, I sing, I design, I write books. What I love the most is the business part. I like what it is leading to. I eventually want to get involved in real estate."
