    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 –...

They accused organisers of selling out and making the event, which kicks off again this weekend, look shabby.Munich tourism chief Gabriele Weishaeupl announced yesterday that celebrity promotions “are completely prohibited by the new festival rules”.

    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.

    This was a full week for the world media: President Bush explained that insurgents in Iraq are tied to al-Qaida, Attorney General Gonzalez sparred with U.S senators, and the Dow lost 226 points. Yet, as I watched the headlines blur across my TV screen, it was clear the media had "Hilton syndrome." Lindsay Lohan's arrest dominated headlines and was the lead story on almost every news program. A nauseating reminder of the Hilton media frenzy, America confirmed its infatuation with the cult of the celebrity.

    As noted here, MSNBC's John Ridley went off on Al Gore this morning, suggesting he should hug his kid rather than the planet, save his son, not ice caps. But over at NBC's "Today", it was a more predictable MSM response, as the show sought to downplay the Gore incident by pointing to Republican politicians whose kids have caused trouble, while praising Chelsea Clinton as unusually mature. Introducing the segment, Meredith Vieira shifted the spotlight from Gore's situation to the broader issues. 'TODAY' CO-HOST MEREDITH VIEIRA: And now to politicians and their children.

    SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Orange County prosecutors say they have until August first to decide whether to file charges against Al Gore's son following his arrest on suspicion of illegally possessing marijuana and prescription drugs. A sheriff's spokesman says Al Gore the Third was driving about 100 miles per hour on the San Diego Freeway early Wednesday when he was pulled over. Sheriff's deputies say they found a small amount of marijuana plus Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, in his Toyota Prius. Sheriff's officials say the 24-year-old Gore did not have a...

    On Monday, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, got some good news. Convicted last month of lying to investigators and obstructing inquiries into the leak of former CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity, Libby learned he wouldn't have to serve his 30-month prison sentence — and had President George W. Bush to thank. The president commuted Libby's sentence, a move that falls just short of a full pardon (see "President Bush Commutes Lewis 'Scooter' Libby's Sentence In CIA Leak Case"). While largely expected, Bush's decision was met with praise from conservative activists and sparked...

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...

    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...

I can’t get enough of this story on TV. Every moment is like a multivitamin for my ego.” Indeed, some 87 percent of those polled said they...

    LOS ANGELES - Paris Hilton's latest jail cell may be as far from a Hilton hotel as she's ever been. The heiress has been in the medical unit of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles since Friday. Inmates call it "the crazy ward" because it houses psychiatric patients. "When I was here, it was the worst of the worst," said Donese Allen, 40, who said she stayed in the unit because she had seizures.[snip].. He said meals consist of "mystery meat" sandwiches; ground beef and potatoes on toast, popularly known as "s--- on a shingle," or macaroni and...

    PARIS Hilton's billionaire grandfather donated money to the election campaign of the sheriff who released the 26-year-old American hotel heiress from jail, it has been revealed. The contribution from William Barron Hilton, 78, co-chairman of the Hilton Hotel chain, to Sheriff Lee Baca's re-election campaign is revealed in financial records. A friend of the Hilton family said the temporary release of the heiress last week may have been a "quid pro quo". "A member of her family has been a contributor to Baca's campaign and this may have been payback time," the friend said. "Her entourage initially were confident she...

    LOS ANGELES — A day after a tearful Paris Hilton was ordered back to jail, the hotel heiress said she won't appeal her 45-day jail sentence and is "learning and growing" from her time behind bars. Her change of heart came Saturday when she announced in a statement released by one of her attorneys that she won't fight her sentence after a brief stint under house arrest at her Hollywood Hills home. "Today, I told my attorneys not to appeal the judge's decision," Hilton said in the statement. "While I greatly appreciate the sheriff's concern for my health and welfare,...

    LOS ANGELES - It was apparently the one time she was camera-shy. Paris Hilton was so terrified guards would snap a cell-phone picture of her on the toilet that she didn't eat or drink for three days, which left her facing a life-threatening collapse, a source told the Daily News. She also was not taking prescribed medication while in jail, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said. The stainless steel lavatory in the hotel heiress' 12-foot-by-8-foot cell was in plain view of a large window in the door, which guards could look through 24 hours a day. "She was absolutely...

    - This is not the first time that Lee Baca, the sheriff who opened the jail door for Paris Hilton, has had his judgment questioned. He's been accused of using his authority to benefit friends and supporters. Since taking office he's accepted thousands of dollars worth of freebie meals, sports tickets and trips. Now Baca is facing accusations of favoritism after making the decision that allowed Hilton to leave jail Thursday to serve out her sentence at her West Hollywood home. After ordering Hilton back to her cell Friday, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer said he "at no time...
