    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.))))

  • Paris Hilton loses inheritance

    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.

    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...

    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...

    PARIS GETS OFF EASY May 17, 2007 -- Paris Hilton's pals tried to get her sentence thrown out completely. That didn't work, but the heir-head will serve only 23 days of her 45-day jail sentence in a "special needs housing unit." The sentence reduction is the result of credit for "good behavior," said L.A. County sherrif spokesman Steve Whitmore. Good behavior, according to the sherrifs office, is showing up for one's scheduled court date. However, most perps don't get amnesty for showing up in court when required. Hilton's luxe accomodations are in a 2,200-inmate facility where police officers, public officials,...

    Paris Hilton is "emotionally distraught and traumatized" over her 45-day jail sentence and isn't capable of testifying in a civil lawsuit against her, the socalite-reality TV star's psychiatrist said. Dr. Charles Sophy has been seeing Hilton, 26, for the past eight months and has talked with her several times since her May 4 hearing for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case, according to court papers. Sophy said Hilton needs time to recover from the shock of receiving jail time before testifying in a civil case brought against her by actress and diamond heiress Zeta...

    Over the weekend, I logged onto one of my favorite websites, Go Fug Yourself, to get their take on the most important celebutante-related gossip of the weekend: Paris Hilton being sentenced to 45 days in jail. Sure enough, their top post began with the following: "Karma is a bitch. And so is Paris Hilton." Oh, Paris. We all love to hate you. Every article about you is usually run with a caveat about how you're famous for nothing, how you're an example of everything that's wrong with America today, and how if we just stopped paying attention, you'd slink away...

    Better watch out inside, say prisoners' kin. Hotel heiress Paris Hilton better watch her back in the Century Regional Detention Facility, visitors who were at the jail yesterday warned. "If you act like you're all high-class and uppity," Denise Chavis said, "you're done." About 150 men and women were waiting outside the jail yesterday - along with Chavis - to see family and friends. Many said they believed the 26-year-old Hilton was in for a strong dose of reality. "My ex-wife got beat up and got a black eye in this place," said a man, who declined to give his...

    LOS ANGELES - City prosecutors said Thursday they will ask a judge to revoke Paris Hilton's probation in a reckless driving case, a move that could lead to a jail term. The decision followed an investigation into whether the hotel heiress and reality star violated terms of her probation by driving last month with a suspended license."We're confident we have sufficient evidence to prove that her license was suspended and that she had knowledge of that suspension," said Nick Velasquez, a spokesman for the city attorney's office. He declined to elaborate on the evidence, citing an ongoing investigation.Hilton could face...

    NEW YORK - An opera singer has sued the Hilton Hotels Corp. for $6 million, complaining she suffered 150 bites from bedbugs on her arms, chest, neck and face when she stayed in one of its hotels in Arizona. Soprano Alison Trainer claimed she was bitten at Phoenix’s Hilton Suites between Nov. 20 and Nov. 26, and said the bites were a “horrific” experience that left her afraid to sleep in a bed, caused her to lose weight and made her uncomfortable about her physical appearance. “She looks like a piece of wood that has been attacked by termites,” said...

    NEW YORK The Associated Press decided to give up a major vice last week: its addiction to stories about Paris Hilton. In the past year, Hilton has appeared on the wire an average of twice a week. The wire service's entertainment editor Jesse Washington sent a memo to staffers on Feb. 13 that said, barring any major events, the AP would not run any mention of Paris Hilton on the wire, according to the memo, which was obtained by the New York Observer. In the Observer article Washington was quoted as saying, "There was a surprising amount of hand-wringing. A...
