”It was devastating because that was someone I was with for a few years. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to fully trust any man again after that. It was just the most hurtful and awful thing that anyone could do to a little girl. I was very young, it wasn’t my fault.”
It’s not often — okay, it’s never — that Paris Hilton inspires sympathy. But in a certain light, you could also look at her as the world’s most famous revenge porn victim. She spoke to the UK’s Telegraph about her DJing career (roll eyes) and addressed how she was affected by that 2004 sex tape. “1 Night In Paris” was apparently laked by her ex-boyfriend/co-star Rick Salomon around the time her reality show “The Simple Life” came out. Some believed that Paris released it herself for publicity. But I believe her that she’s actually vain enough not to release a sex tape in night vision and that this was actually a humiliating experience for her.
It is creepy that Paris refers to herself as “a little girl,” though. She was 23 when that sex tape came out. [Telegraph UK]
Carl’s Jr. ads have a signature formula, and it tends to involve scantily clad hot ladies — which have included Jenny McCarthy, Heidi Klum and Paris Hilton — sauntering around in a semi-NSFW manner while remembering to take a big bite out of a burger every now and then. This time around, the company’s latest “sexy burger-eating” ad features a dude, and damn do things look different when the star is a guy. Keep reading »
The country music world was rocked last week when news broke that Willie Nelson’s famous armadillo mascot had been stolen. The iconic stuffed animal (I had to read the story, like, six times to figure out it wasn’t a real, live armadillo and must admit I was a bit disappointed), which always accompanies Nelson on stage, was nabbed during a fan meet and greet after a Las Vegas concert. Nelson realized the armadillo was missing after his tour bus had already hit the road back to California. His crew called the venue in a panic, requesting the surveillance tapes to help track down the thief, but apparently the mounting guilt had already proved too much for the armadillo snatcher. The next morning, “an apologetic man” drove up to the resort and dropped off a shoe box with instructions to return it to Willie. Inside was the beloved armadillo. Willie’s kidnapped “pet” might have been stuffed, but other famous folks have had their living, breathing pets stolen out from under them.

Once upon a time, there lived three wild, crazy, barely-to-moderately talented entertainers who ran in the same circle but did not often hang out together, either because of jealousy, competition and, some say, bits of unrequited affection. Then one day, all three of these starlets were photographed in a car together and the universe practically exploded considering all the possible outcomes of this new and powerful trifecta. But alas, it was not meant to be, as nothing particularly special resulted from that packed front seat and the three went their separate ways, with none of them churning out anything of particular achievement since. Why am I telling you this story? Oh, because that photograph, the one of the three starlets (Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, obviously), is so bizarrely infamous that Lily Allen has used it in her video for the song “Our Time,” only she plays all three herself. Watch above! [Chart Rigger]
Just incase Paris Hilton’s dress wasn’t labial enough (did she borrow this gown from ex-friend and labial fashion enthusiast Kim Kardashian?), the socialite made sure to go commando to her birthday festivities in Hollywood last night. That’s hot? [Photos: Splash News]
In case you’d like to feel especially crappy about the unfairness that is life today, I’d like to let you know that Paris Hilton got even richer on vacation last weekend (wait, isn’t her whole life a vacation?). It figures that the one of the few people to score big at the casino is someone who doesn’t need it, but maybe that’s what comes with the luxury of being able to bet endless amounts of money. The heiress alerted her Instagram followers that she won $50,000 playing blackjack in Atlantic City (I’m sure they were on the edge of their seats
at the news). Oh, and was paid $100,000 for DJing gig there. At least she earned
that DJ money by working for it. Sort of. Keep doing you, Paris. [Huffington Post
