PARIS Fury challenged the stereotype that all traveling women are good at cooking and cleaning.
In an exclusive interview with Fabulous, Paris, 33, said she is proud to come from a line of strong women who taught her many invaluable lessons that she still embraces to this day. .
In an eye-opening chat this Sunday, mother-of-seven Paris told us: “I come from a line of strong women, and we don’t just learn how to cook and clean.
“My mother taught me how to drive, taught me how to bank, do business and go to college.
“She told me, ‘you can do this’ and she helped me try to do homework, handle paperwork and job interviews – all of these things come from the brain of an elderly woman.”
Paris, who is married to boxing champion Tyson Fury, went on to say that it wasn’t just her mother who paved the way for her.
She also credits her grandmother, who she said “was a strong woman,” for setting the precedent. And Paris writes movingly about both of her family’s matriarchs in her book, How does she do it?
“It’s been passed down through the generations, so it’s not just about cooking and cleaning,” she told us.
“I think tourists have a stereotype that all women know is how to clean and I really wanted to include this in the book – I hope it is successful.
“I wasn’t just taught how to gamble or polish dishes, I was also taught how to run a family, a business and be a strong, independent woman.”
Picking up on a specific mantra her mother passed on to her, Paris went on to say: “I found it so powerful when she said, ‘you can be anything – no one is better than you, no one is worse than’.
“I believe that to this day – there is no one below me but there is no one above either, I feel that we are all on a level playing field.”
And that’s exactly why down-to-earth Paris is determined to teach not only her daughters but also her sons the importance of helping around the house.

“Tyson has basically lived on his own since he was 14 years old. He’s constantly in and out of training facilities, going to Sheffield training camp and he’s completely independent – he can cook, he can do the washing, whatever needs to be done.”
“I want my sons to know all that and be able to do that,” she added.
The At Home With The Furys star, who previously hit back at claims that she has a secret nanny and revealed that she and her family do everything themselves, added: “Having a big family, I love getting the kids involved.
“I like Prince to help unload the dishwasher, pick up toys and clutter, and tell the kids to put away their Legos.
“And I told Venezuela to clean her room and make her bed. I think it’s all part of normal life.”

And it’s clearly important for the Loose Women star to continue passing on what her mother and grandmother taught her.
“If the cleaner comes and changes the bed and turns it into a hotel, the children will have to enter the real world,” she concluded.
“Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it! I saw an interview about Oprah Winfrey and it seemed like she changed her bedroom every day, like a hotel style cleaning. I think that’s adorable, but then what am I going to teach the kids?
“How can I do that to them and say, ‘yeah, you don’t need to scrape plates, you don’t need to wash dishes and you don’t need to sweep floors – and then they’ll have to go to the real world and learn it difficulty.”
