It was a drama filled night Friday at Hyde, a Hollywood hotspot packed with celebrities. Sources inside the club tell TMZ there was a ton of trash talk between Lindsay Lohan and the Hilton sisters. At one point, sources say, Lindsay and Paris were literally face-to-face in a heated spat.
Paris' rep, Elliot Mintz, plays down the incident. "Inside the club," he says, "Paris was having a conversation with a couple friends. Lindsay approached her table and at that moment Paris felt she was being interrupted and didn't wish to speak with Lindsay. A couple of words were exchanged and Lindsay went back to her table. I can understand how other patrons in the club could have thought it had been a bigger deal then it actually was."
Sources tell TMZ that the root of this apparent tension may be because Lindsay has recently been on a publicity campaign for her new film, 'Just My Luck.' Sources say Paris is upset because during the campaign Lindsay has mentioned Paris' name in interviews with the media. They say Paris feels as if Lindsay is using Paris' name to further her career.
Our own Josh Levine caught up with Nicky, Paris and their friend Brandon Davis leaving the club, who had a few choice words of his own to say about the redheaded star.
Lindsay's publicist told TMZ, "Lindsay doesn't need to drop names to get publicity. She has talent, great style and beauty."
In terms of Lindsay namedropping Paris for publicity, it seems Paris would be more upset that Lindsay's been bedding all of her exes this month.
Lindsay has not been photographed since Friday, and she hopefully took the weekend off from partying and sleeping with various new guys to rest up and change her clothes. Maybe the little spat with Paris helped her realize that it's time to lay low.
Meanwhile Paris hasn't been seen with Matt Leinart since he left her house last Wednesday morning. It's been about a week, and we'll see how long it takes before we see them together again.
Here is Paris on the night in question attending the Race to Erase MS event. (Paris and Brandon Davis are not together. He is an old friend of hers, although they had a big falling out at one point, with Brandon calling Paris a racist.)
I saw some pictures on WENN photo yesterday of Paris and Nicky Hilton pumping gas and getting ready to go to Mother's Day dinner with their mom, and I honest thought "Where is their gift?" (The pictures are low-quality watermarked, but you can see what I mean in the last two rows, below. Look at how messy their car is!)
Paris Hilton's mother can only imagine what her celebrity daughter got her for Mother's Day. That's because thieves stole the gifts before Kathy Hilton received them.
A gift bag containing nearly $10,000 worth of Christian Dior shoes, sunglasses, handbags and perfume was taken from outside the Hilton home, spokesman Elliot Mintz said Monday.
The younger Hilton "spent three or four hours shopping to put together this wonderful collection of things for her mom," Mintz said.
A delivery person set the package down outside the home's gate to ring the intercom when a passenger in a passing car snatched the gifts.
"A fellow just whizzed by and grabbed the package," Mintz said.
The Hilton family celebrated Mother's Day by going out to dinner, he said.
Now, it's totally possible that this happened, but it sounds like a typical excuse for forgetting to get your mom anything for Mother's Day. We know that Paris and Nicky went shopping on Saturday as they were photographed going to Kitson, but Kitson is a trendy casual store and doesn't sell Christian Dior items. They didnt have any bags with them that would suggest they got anything else. Maybe they went somewhere else, too, but we doubt it. The paparrazi follow them everywhere, and they would have been easily spotted at an upscale boutique if they actually did all this heavy shopping for their mom. Also, why would they have gifts delivered if they were going to see their mother on Sunday? Wouldn't they bring the gifts with them?
There's something about Paris' mom, Kathy, that makes you feel sorry for her. Sure she has more advantages in life than large portions of the planet combined, but she just seems needy and unfulfilled. Her family must take her for granted, but at least they had a nice dinner together on Sunday.
Here are Paris and Nicky on Saturday outside of Kitson and on Mother's Day outside the Ivy restaurant. It's nice that Paris is pumping her own gas. [via] and [via] Paris, Nicky and their mom Kathy are shown at "The Race to Erase MS," above.
Are you reeling from a painful breakup? Going through a divorce? Unwilling to let go of an erstwhile lover?
If so, then Nick Lachey's new solo album, "What's Left of Me," could prove cathartic; If not, it might leave you a bit depressed...
The disc - a somber, soulful, angsty collection of 12 ballads - is a slickly produced, raw-nerved confessional of his heartbreak and an open letter to Simpson.
In "Shades of Blue," one of the album's best tracks, Lachey pines for a lost love, foolishly awaiting her return. He asks, "Why did you have to leave? Why did you have to set me free? Why did you have to go?" But he takes an angrier tone in "I Do it For You," expressing his wish to see her "bleed and see how it feels..."
Realizing that he must move on ("I don't want to waste another day stuck in the shadow of my mistakes"), the title track has Lachey telling a potential lover to make him "whole once again."
His brooding songs, sung in a clear tenor, span different stages of grief, sometimes within the same track - there's resentment, regret and acceptance in "I Can't Hate You Anymore" - until he reaches his "Resolution," pledging his commitment to let go. Finally.
Set to a pop soundtrack, his pain becomes palpable, raw, universal. His pain becomes ours.
Here's the video for "What's Left of Me." It's pretty good.
The NY Daily News is reporting that Nick decided not to respond to former miss Kentucky Lizzie Arnold, who he was supposedly dating in January. She was said to have sent him several voice and text messages in a vain attempt to get in touch with him before the Kentucky Derby. He was busy with Petra Nemcova the next day, so why would he bother with a past hookup?
Stars attending the CDs release party at Mood in Las Vegas last night include Sophia Bush, Drew Lachey, Wilmer Valderrama, Ryan McPartlin, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Ryan McPartlin, Sophie Monk, Stacey Keibler, Lance Bass, Traci Swain, Casey Swain and Bonnie Somerville.
She says, "I think I just went from 17 to 21. I'm a woman now.
"When I first broke on the scene, I was a little kid straight out of high school and into skate-boarding and all that.
"Now I'm older. I'll keep wearing the rock look but a little more feminine, a little more of that rock glam thing going on".
Avril Lavigne wore black, making it hard to judge the size of her baby bump. Also attending were Avril's fiance Deryck Whibley, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, Kevin Connolly, Michelle Trachtenberg, Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Caroline D'Amore, Krista Allen, Seth Green, Travis Barker, Alison Waite and Benji Madden.
When Paris and Stavros were shown on the Jumbotron at a Lakers game on Easter Sunday, she got booed by the crowd despite the fact that she was wearing a Lakers shirt:
While celebrities such as Jack Nicholson and Dyan Cannon were cheered when they were shown on the Jumbotron late in the game, Paris Hilton was loudly booed despite wearing Lakers colors. After she stopped smiling and waving for the camera, she turned to her boyfriend Stavros Niarchos III and sarcastically said, "Wow, thanks."
She tells Michael Musto for an Out magazine cover story. "I'm Catholic. Of course, they're not going to run pictures of me in church," she said. In the interview, which was filmed for an episode of "The Simple Life," Hilton said of "Jealousy," her song about Nicole Richie: "I brought her on the show, and all of a sudden she became this different person."
It's not very Christian to diss people publicly, is it? Of course we wouldn't know.
Here she is with Courtney Love and her sister Nicky at the "Sober Day USA" Launch Party with The Brent Shapiro Foundation For Drug Awareness in Hollywood. Brent Shapiro was the 24 year-old son of famous attorney Robert Shapiro. He died of a drug overdose last year despite being sober for a year and a half and turning his life around. He died after drinking and taking just a half tab of ecstacy. The Brent Shapiro foundation aims to raise awareness about drug abuse and decrease the stigma associated with discussing the problem.
It looks like Courtney and Paris are exchanging numbers. No comment.
DKNY Jeans and Motorola have teamed up for an invite-only weekend house party in La Quinta featuring Paul Thomson of Franz Ferdinand on Sunday.
Andreas Herr, co-publisher of music publication Anthem Magazine, is hosting his second pool party Saturday afternoon at Frank Sinatra's Twin Palms estate. The magazine brought in Reebok, Amp'd Mobile and InSound to sponsor the event, and invited music label executives, fashion-industry types and musicians.
"It's an influential audience. It's something that our sponsors like to reach," Herr said.
Hopefully Nicole Richie got some free sunglasses. The ones she wore to the party look like they came from a joke shop.
Pictured attendees include Taryn Manning, Nicole Richie, Nicky Hilton, Kevin Connelly, Scott Speedman, Busy Phillipps, Alex Nesic, and Melissa Sagemiller.
Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood Awards were held Wednesday night. Jessica Alba had a near nip-slip that resulted in some cute picture of her pulling her dress strap up. (Wireimage did not capture this, so you'll have to see it everywhere else.)
Jennifer Love Hewitt said she has ended up several times on the magazine's worst-dressed list, but was still tickled that she won the hottest body award in the new issue. Both Hewitt and Jesse McCartney showed up with shorter 'dos. And Tori Spelling confirmed that she has hired a wedding planner for her upcoming nuptials to Dean McDermott. Still, she insisted she's planning something small. "I just want to look good for him," Spelling said.
We have over 50 pictures of the party arrivals, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Alba, Alessandra Ambrosio, Brittany Murphy, Cindy Margolis, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Ludacris, Harry Hamlin, Lisa Rinna, Haylie Duff, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Paris Hilton, Victoria Silvstedt, Avril Lavigne, Carmen Electra, Dave Navarro, Michelle Trachtenberg, Rachael Leigh Cook, Nicky Hilton, Gabrielle Union, Kelly Osbourne, Kimberly Stewart, Stacy Keibler, Ryan Seacrest, Sofia Vergara, Taryn Manning, Maria Sharapova, Melinda Clarke, Tom Green with a fanny pack, and Tori Spelling.
Maybe Paris Hilton can act. According to the Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet, the hard-partying heiress cried to get out of a ticket for driving without a registration for her new car:
Paris Hilton visited several nightclubs the night between thursday and friday. The wealthy heiress drove around in her brand new Mercedes SLR - worth almost half a million dollars - when she suddenly was pulled over by the police. The reason was that her car didn't have a valid registration for the state of California, which technically gives the police the right to tow the car. But according to several witnesses, Paris started crying real bad, which made the female officer feel sorry for her and eventually give in. Shortly after, Paris could drive away with only a warning.
So Paris didn't even get a ticket for driving with an unregistered vehicle. She's had the car for about a month, so you think she could send one of her minions to the DMV for her. Here are some pictures of Paris getting a parking ticket, so she's at least suffered that indignity.
Here's a German commercial for online yellow pages featuring Paris ordering some rolls:
And here are pictures of Paris celebrating her boyfriend Stavros Niarchos III's 21st Birthday Party at Tao Night Club in Las Vegas on 4/22. [via]
Update: pictures of Hilton at the opening of the "replay" clothing store in LA last night. Brandon Davis is launching his line of jeans at the new store. Davis is a former friend of Hilton, and spoke out against her last year, calling her a racist. Nick Hilton also attending the opening.
PARIS HILTON will travel to the ski resort of Ischgl, Austria, on Sunday. While she's sure to get in some exercise, some posing, some dating, she is actually there to serve as the host of the Top of the Mountain concert series. Among her duties, she'll introduce rocker Pink, who closes the concert.
The poker tournament proved to be a popular event at Maxim's 100th issue celebration in Las Vegas this weekend. Pictured guests include Paris and Nicky Hilton, Vanessa Minnillo, Dave Navarro, Shannon Elizabeth, Taye Diggs, Jamie Lynn-Sigler, Haylie Duff, Gabrielle Union, Kelly Monaco, Anne Heche, and Mekhi Phifer.
Paris must have a thing for female VJs because she posed seductively with Vanessa Minnilo on the red carpet. She was seen in nude photographs with another VJ, Eglantina Zingg, in pictures hacked from her sidekick last year.
Paris has said that she doesn't think she looks like Mother Teresa, but we couldn't find a quote that she turned down the role to play the saintly nun in an upcoming Bollywood feature despite news reports jumping to that conclusion.
Here is Paris and company posing at the poker tournament. The winner was a guy named Robert Badgley, who took home a check for $10,000. We couldn't whether it went to charity or not through a half-assed google search.
Nicky Hilton attended a cocktail party held by retail consulting firm Directives West in LA last night. She donned her typical black satin attire with black boots worn over jeans. Nicky needs to liven up her wardrobe a little and call in some help with her boring clothing line.
Here's Nicky's sister Paris walking the runway at the 2BFree fashion show. There are also interviews with Kelly Osbourne, Haylie Duff, and an obviously drunk Tara Reid.
Nicky's bruise is on her right arm, while Paris' bruises are on her right, suggesting that they were facing each other during the fight. (And that they both are left handed, which is not true and blows our theory, but it's a somewhat slow news day.)
The countdown to the Young Hollywood Awards party presented by Diesel was held yesterday at Liberace's penthouse in Beverly Hills.
Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards will air this Saturday at 8pm, and will be hosted by Jack Black. We assume that's what the Young Hollywood Awards party is celebrating. Nickelodeon is set to offer a new online component to the awards, which will allow users to view the event live from different camera angles on demand from the Nickelodeon website.
Guests pictured at last night's party include Lindsay Lohan, Nicky Hilton, Haylie Duff, Maggie Grace, Natasha Henstridge, Jesse Metcalfe (who brought a female friend), Ryan Cabrera, Brittany Snow, Deborah Gibson, Stacy Keibler, Shannon Elizabeth, Ben Foster, Frankie Muniz, and Melinda Clarke.
Nicky Hilton was at AmericasMart mall in Atlanta, GA yesterday to introduce her new clothing line, which will be offered in the store Ambrosia & Co. Judging from the clothes she was wearing, it involves a lot of black satin and includes some dreaded formal shorts.
Electra's rep tells me, "They are fine, fine, fine. This started somewhere and it's just gotten out of control." Whispers of problems apparently began in recent weeks because Electra and Navarro haven't been seen together as much they used to be.
Looks like Navarro was too busy this time to sit through a fashion show for the sake of his marriage. We can't blame him.
[They] took the simplest of silhouettes, hardware and fabrics to create a signature style that redefines “rock n roll” casual ware. Fusing tie-dye with rhinestones and nail heads, 2 B Free created a fit and look that was not only sexy, but modern and ultimately wearable. Yves and Cedric Benaroch 25 and 24 respectfully, are the creators of Los Angeles fashion phenomenon 2 B Free, which gained its highest notoriety and entree’ into the world of the fashion elite, during the Spring 2004 Smashbox Fashion Week in Los Angeles.
IF YOU'RE SOMEONE'S DATE, DON'T EXPECT TO BE INTRODUCED. No one cares about spouses, relatives and arm candy at Hollywood parties. You could be a Nobel laureate, but if you're a plus-one during Oscar week, no one will want to meet you. And your significant other probably won't introduce you. Don't take it personally...
IF YOU HAVEN'T WORKED ON ONE OF THE NOMINATED FILMS, CONSIDER STAYING HOME. Being at an Oscar party without a nomination is like bleeding in an ocean surrounded by sharks. The safest course is to stay out of the water...
KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN... Moderation is the word. Your behavior is always being watched, by the industry and by the press.
THOU SHALL NOT PITCH.
GIVE YOUR ENTOURAGE THE NIGHT OFF."It is truly the one night of the year where entourages are not tolerated," said Judy Levy... For those who don't make it into a party, rejection at the door can be painful since you are forced to do a reverse red carpet: a humiliating walk past the hundreds of publicists, television cameras and paparazzi who just witnessed your attempt to get in.
DON'T EXPECT TO MEET YOUR HOST. Although everywhere else it is considered good manners to seek out your hosts and thank them, in Hollywood the opposite is true.
If you're lucky enough to get invited to an Oscar party, you're meant to talk to people you know, not drink or eat, keep a low profile, and never introduce your significant other. It sounds like so much fun.
Here are Kiera, Sienna, Nicky & Paris at the Endeavor Pre-Oscar Party on 3/4/05. The Endeavor party strives to be press-free:
Endeavor agent Patrick Whitesell avoids competition by throwing the very last of the post-Oscar parties, a tightly exclusive bash in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills that begins in the wee hours and raves until dawn. Journalists aren't welcome there, either.
Four more of Nicky and Kiera after the jump. Pictures [via]
