"I never realized that people work for their money," Paris says. On the bright side: "The tanning salons there are, like, $4."

•WHO THEY DO IT WITH: Pals like Kelly Osbourne and Tara Reid. "A lot of people want to automatically hate them because they are pretty and rich," says Reid. "But they walk in and the whole room gets brighter."

•WHO THEY DATE: Nicky recently broke up with ex-MTV veejay Brian McFayden, 29; Paris split with her boyfriend of two years, model Jason Shaw, 30.

•WHO THEY HATE: Shannen Doherty and Paris argued, allegedly because Paris talked to Doherty's ex-husband Richard Salomon.

•WHAT'S MOM SAY? Says Kathy: "The girls are a lot more normal than people think."
