    Paris Hilton Plans Trip to Rwanda By Sara Hammel It's not the typical sort of hot spot she's used to, but Paris Hilton says that she's planning to hit the road to Rwanda. Apparently making good on her post-jail promise to help others, the socialite, 26, tells E! Online about her African ambitions, "I'll be going in November, after I get back from filming my movie. There's so much need in that area, and I feel like if I go, it will bring more attention to what people can do to help." Though a trouble spot of notorious proportions –...

    ((((MINDEN, Nev., Sept. 7 — To the locals, it is known as “that ranch.” Most have never set foot on it, kept out by warning signs and careful surveillance.... The Flying-M Ranch is a million-acre spread owned by the hotel magnate William Barron Hilton about 90 miles southeast of Reno. Mr. Hilton, whose granddaughters Paris and Nicky are now more famous than he, is a 79-year-old outdoors enthusiast with a penchant for playing host to his many celebrity friends.))))

    Hilton becomes socialist, but prices stay same By Jeremy McDermott, Latin America Correspondent Last Updated: 1:21am BST 03/09/2007 It has been a landmark for the last 38 years, a point of navigation for taxi drivers and tourists alike, but now the Hilton Hotel in Caracas has been taken over by the state to become a "socialist tourism business". "We want to put this hotel at the service of the people," said Eustacio Aguilera, the president of the Simon Bolivar Centre, the government cultural institution that owns the hotel. "Now everyone will have access to a great hotel and be able...
  • Paris Hilton loses inheritance

    07/30/2007 8:23:46 AM PDT · by Borges · 84 replies · 3,073+ views ^ | 7/30/07
    Party princess Paris Hilton is $60 million out of pocket after her billionaire grandfather - appalled by her jail term for drink-driving offences - axed her inheritance. Family patriarch Barron Hilton was already embarrassed by his granddaughter's wild behaviour - notably when her home sex video was leaked on the internet. But the 79-year-old considered her 23-day sentence last month the last straw. "He was, and is, extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris," says Jerry Oppenheimer, who wrote a biography of the clan called House Of Hilton.
  • Hilton's inheritance seized by fed up grandfather (Paris disinherited)

    National Nine News ^ | July 30, 2007 | ninemsn staff
    Paris Hilton’s recent behaviour has sent her billionaire grandfather into fury — so much so that the hotel heiress-cum-jailbird will not see a cent of her $59 million inheritance. The co-chairman of the famous hotel chain, Conrad ‘Barron’ Hilton, has instead decided to plough his fortune into a charitable foundation in an effort to carry on family tradition. And the 79-year-old has also cut off his 11 other grandchildren in the name of philanthropy. "He was, and is, extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris," says Jerry Oppenheimer, author of House Of Hilton. "He doesn't...

    It was a phrase made famous by actress Ingrid Bergman's character Ilsa Lund in the classic Humphrey Bogart film Casablanca. But movie buffs and other show biz aficionados are far more likely these days to hear it from news editors and entertainment show producers. "We'll always have Paris," no longer applies to the romantic French metropolis which was where Lund and Bogart's Rick Blaine made magical love. Instead, it now pertains to that other Paris, the one whose name is on every television newscast and in every newspaper across North America and around the world. And the spectacle that is...

    Just as White House loyalists had begun arguing that clemency for I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby -- either a pardon or a commuted sentence -- would be a way for an embattled President Bush to reassert himself, particularly among conservatives, Paris Hilton has volunteered to serve Libby's sentence. "I am just getting what I deserve," said the born-again hotel heiress, "but Scooter has done nothing wrong! And, if he did, he should not serve any more time than Bill CLinton did for perjury!" Several Republicans said that it would be a good move for both Bush's and Hilton's sagging poll numbers.

    Thank goodness for Paris Hilton. She may be a vacuous bimbo with the intelligence of an inanimate object, but she knows precisely how Hollywood celebrities are supposed to behave. Get drunk, drive fast, dance long, cry in public, be sluttish and make absolutely no contribution to anyone or anything. And for all of her witless posing, she does little harm and claims nothing more than what she is. Which is, oddly enough, nothing. No attempt to tell the unwashed how to live, no inflated political statements, no irksome polemics on the international stage. Which brings us to the glamorous set...

    Paris Hilton will end up serving more time behind bars than the vast majority of inmates sent to L.A. County Jail for similar offenses, according to a Times analysis of jail records. Whether Hilton received special treatment from the Sheriff's Department has become the subject of much debate since Sheriff Lee Baca last week allowed the hotel heiress to go home after less than four full days in jail, despite a promise that she would serve 23 days of a 45-day sentence. The Times analyzed 2 million jail releases and found 1,500 cases since July 2002 that — like Hilton's...
  • JAILHOUSE GRUB GETS A BUM RAP: Paris snubs it, but inmate food must be nourishing, appealing

    With less than two weeks to go on her sentence, hotel heiress Paris Hilton reportedly is rejecting most of her jailhouse rations, opting for just the cereal and bread. The Los Angeles County jail is no Ritz-Carlton, to be sure. It's not even the Hilton. But contrary to popular belief, food fare in the slammer these days is far from gruel and water. In fact, a whole set of regulations requires meals not only be nourishing but also look good on the plate. Many California jails, including those in San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties, have gone so far...

    With just about every single media outlet on the planet trying to shove a mic in their faces, Paris' sister Nicky and on-again off-again-who-knows-what Stavros Niarchos rolled down to Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles yesterday to visit Paris -- waltzing right into the building without having to wait in the ridiculously long visitors line. Family members and friends of other inmates complained that they had to wait for more than three hours. But TMZ has learned that the two were ushered in during a break in the normal visitor schedule, due to Paris' "special needs" situation. While she...

    Celebs refuse to support Paris Hilton (AP) Updated: 2007-06-12 16:14 Celebrities who fall on tough legal times can often rely on their fellow stars for support. Jodie Foster spoke out on Mel Gibson's behalf after his anti-Semitic tirade last summer. The cast of The View gave Alec Baldwin a place to explain his custody battle and an angry voicemail message he left for his 11-year-old daughter. Robert Downey, Jun was welcomed with understanding and job offers after his multiple drug arrests. But few Hollywood players have come out in support of Paris Hilton, who was sentenced to 45 days in...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Paris Hilton says she is locking up her "dumb" act and throwing away the key. Hilton revealed her new outlook in a weekend phone call to Barbara Walters from a county jail medical ward where she is serving out a 45- day sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case. "I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute," Hilton said during the call, according to an account posted by Walters on ABC's Web site. "It is not who I am, nor...

The unusual conversation came about because Kathy Hilton, Paris' mother, had phoned me, and while we were talking, Paris called on the other line. When she heard I was talking to her mother, she said she'd like to talk to me herself. She sounded tired but totally aware of what she was saying. "How are you?" I asked. Paris answered, "I'm hanging in there." But she...
