We’ve kind of ignored Paris Hilton for a while, but now that the Kardashian girls are all over the place I have to say I kind of miss her squinty bird face. She’s really quite harmless when compared to the alternative, and I kind of miss the halcyon days of Paris’ ubiquity. Paris has gained some weight recently, sparking pregnancy rumors. She’s cleared that up with the news that she’s on a 3,500 calorie a day bodybuilding diet thanks to the influence of her boyfriend/maybe fiance, Cy Waits. In a new interview with OK! Magazine, she says that she keeps active and that she’s now “a normal weight.” Paris is slightly growing on me. (No pun intended.) She’s respectful and appropriately-dressed in her court appearances, she’s relatively low-key with her famewhoring lately, and she looks really good and healthy with her recent weight gain. What the hell is wrong with me? (Note that I wrote all that before looking at any pictures of her. Once I saw her I came back to reality.)
On her weight:
“I was underweight. Now I’m a normal weight. [Cy and I] go on jogs every morning.”
On her friendship with Nicole Richie
Paris says she and Nicole Richie are still in touch. “We’ll always be close.”
On her Kim Kardashian feud
“I’ve never had a problem with her and she hasn’t with me… I wish her the best.”
On having children someday
“I think that’s the meaning of life, having your own children. I can’t wait for that day. I look forward to experiencing that love and close bond. I’m in an incredible relationship…”
Does this relationship feel different
“Yes. I’ve never met a man so loyal or ever felt so comfortable or safe with someone. With him, I know that I have nothing ever to worry about. I trust him with my life.”
Do you want to have a large family?
“Definitely. Family is really important to me, I’m so close with all of my family. I hope to be fortunate enough to be blessed with lots of children.”

Paris has a new reality show coming on Oxygen, The World According to Paris, and I think she’ll soon find that people don’t really care. Her fame piqued in 2007. She might be more likeable now but that doesn’t translate into interest in whatever project she’s taking on. At least she’s setting a better example now that she’s off the coke (presumably) and isn’t a stick insect. Maybe this guy is the one for her though. He got her to eat something. He does look like a douche, but so is she.
