Paris Hilton plans humanitarian trip to Cameroon

Paris Hilton isn’t known as a woman who honors her commitments, so you’ll excuse me if I’m not marking my calendar with this latest announcement. Apparently, Paris is still trying to convince us that she is a humanitarian, on top of all of her other job titles. Paris claims that a trip to Africa is imminent, all because she’s been specially invited by the First Lady of Cameroon to “help shine a light on the struggles that Africa faces.”

Part of this endeavor must have come to Paris when she attended a summit on women’s health issues in developing countries a few weeks ago. Yes, Paris Hilton was invited to a summit. I dare Paris to spell “summit”. Why was she invited – to discuss women’s health issues? Health issues like… herpes? Probably not, actually. The biggest concerns facing African women are AIDS, reproductive freedoms, sexual assault, child trafficking, that sort of thing. So they thought of Paris Hilton…

Paris Hilton will be announcing a trip to Africa, has learned.

She recently attended a summit on health and women’s issues in Los Angeles with 15 first ladies from African nations. Paris told “I met Sarah Brown, wife of British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, and she is so inspirational and gracious. It was an honor for me to be there, and I want to help shine a light on the struggles that Africa faces.”

Paris also spent time the First Lady of Cameroon, Chantal Biya and told “The First Lady of Cameroon personally invited me to Cameroon and it’s something I hope to make happen. It is a very important priority to me.”

Paris is now Twitter buddies with Sarah Brown, and she has already talked to Biya since the event. Scott Lazerson of the Interface Foundation says, “The First Lady of Camaroon has invited the Interface Foundation to Cameroon to work on the Millennium Development goals. We have some exciting news to announce in the next two weeks.”

Paris Hilton memorably claimed that she would devote more time to charitable work in Africa once she got out of jail in 2007. Yeah, that never happened. Cameroon’s First Lady must not read the gossip sites.

Here’s Paris Hilton outside the gym yesterday and at an event for The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center on 4/24/09. Credit:

    What a crock of s***. Paris attended that summit? She probably got lost on her way to a club, saw a red carpet, paparazzi and reporters and decided to pull over and see if she could garner some attention. When it turned out to be a political thing, she quickly called her manager and asked him to feed her a few lines to learn off by heart. Her statement about Brown’s wife is so rehearsed. You can tell she didn’t even know who was the British PM (let alone his wife) before stumbling into that event. As for the whole Cameroon thing, I’ll bet a million dollars she couldn’t point it out on a map. Certainly not before that event and probably not after either. This is just ego-stroking at its best. And no offense, but the First Lady of Cameroon was probably just being polite and maybe hoping that if she talks to Paris Hilton, a little more reporters will highlight the event. Sheesh…

    Wait a second, what happened to that inspirational awareness raising trip she was going to take to Rwanda? Oh right if you announce to people you are going somewhere a few months later everyone will think you actually went there. Seriously why would anyone want Paris to represent…

  3. Codzilla says:

    Why does she even bother? No one takes anything she does or says seriously, so this whole “shine a light” nonsense is a load.

    I think she needs to visit the swine flu impact zone in Mexico City.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Funniest thing I’ve heard in weeks.

    Course this’ll happen. And pigs will fly.

    There isn’t enough mosquitoe nets to stop this blood sucking mediawhore from going around the wrong spewing her Herp infested self!!!! I honestly wish people like Madonna and her go away!!!!

    I think she’s in the process of reinventing herself. She’s been out in the media 10 years and she’s done nothing but get arrested other than the brief TV show and a CD that lasted a nanosecond. She’s obviously savvy enough media-wise to keep herself in the spotlight, but she’s apparently figured out this won’t last forever. Unfortunately, she hasn’t discovered that this area of activity actually requires some work in order to avoid be ing considered a complete joke and lose media coverage. Of course, she may continue her pattern of never following through.

    I suspect the 1st lady of Cameroon didn’t realize Paris’ true image. She just saw her photos in the media and knows she is rich. Boy, is she in for a surprise, assuming Paris shows up.

    Maybe she and the First Lady of Cameroon can exchange hairstyling tips.

    Heheh @ Cinderella.

    I wonder if the first lady of cameroon is a leo.

    Well the first lady of Cameroon isn’t any smarter than Paris. They just look like sisters. May be the first lady would like to join the acting profession too. My bet is she would probably like to play in a porn movie since it doesn’t take any real skills to act in such movies than being able to off one’s dresses and get laid. This is a woman that is in love with the media and will to anything to be noticed.
