For 124 years American charity Union Rescue Mission has been feeding the homeless over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. 200 volunteers work tirelessly to feed the estimated 4000 Skid Row residents a heathy meal on a special weekend.The charity provides shelter for the homeless, clothing, medical and dental care, in addition to legal support, and has quite the regular celebrity following.
The Los Angeles born organisation was visited this weekend by philanthropic Hilton heiress Paris Hilton, who worked in the kitchen dishing up the turkey- based goods to the thousands of hungry men and women. After her stint at serving the public, she returned to her parent’s mansion for a Kathy Hilton feast!
She tweeted yesterday evening: “Thanksgiving is about appreciating what you have and giving back to those in need. Always enjoy my time making the holidays special for everyone at the Union Rescue Mission. Happy Thanksgiving.”
Meanwhile, across town Kendall Jenner and friends were spotted handing out sandwiches to the homeless they spotted on the street. Good work girls!
Paris Hilton has altered her musical direction quite drastically in the last few years, and her new record label certainly reflects that. The party-loving socialite has just inked a deal with ‘Cash Money Records‘, known for its rap and R&B stars, such as the likes of Nicki Minaj and ‘Lil Wayne.
The ‘Young Money‘ account tweeted: “EVERYONE GO FOLLOW
@ParisHilton.SHE OFFICIALLY FAMILY NOW! @BIRDMAN5STAR SLIM @LILTUNECHI DONE IT AGAIN! BILLIONAIRE MIND$ #YMCMB.” Paris and ‘Lil Wayne have been chummy for a while- this year he performed at her birthday party (crystal microphone and all), and last year they released a song together.
Paris revealed to ‘Showbiz 411‘ that fans can expect to hear her next track as early as this summer: “This is a lot different than my first album. It’s really going to be house music.” The blondie also posted on her Twitter account: “Love all you guys so much! So proud I have been Trending Worldwide all day & night because of you all. I have the best fans in the world!” New colleague Birdman tweeted her: “Welcome@ParisHilton to tha Family,” and she responded with: “Thanks BO$$! Happy to be apart of the family.
Just 3 years ago, Paris Hilton was very nearly murdered in her sleep. The philanthropist and globally famous celebrity was sleeping in her LA mansion with boyfriend at the time, Cy Waits, when she awoke to find a man by a downstairs window, (stalker Nathan Lee Parada), wielding several knives. For the first time since then, she has rehashed her ordeal with ‘The Sun‘, and has lifted the lid on why this incident has led to some drastic life changes.
She recalled the dramatic event in the interview: “It was terrifying. I had never experienced anything like that before and it really shook the foundations of my world. It was about 5am when I heard someone banging on my window. I went downstairs and saw a crazy guy outside with two huge kitchen knives in his hands. He looked like he wanted to kill me and he kept banging on the windows, demanding to be let in. I screamed. I was certain he was going to get through the windows or the door and then that would be it. I was certain he would kill me if he could get inside.”
“Luckily, my boyfriend heard the noise and came tearing down the stairs. He got his gun, went outside and put it to the man’s head. Cy forced him to the ground and held him there until the police arrived. If he had not acted so swiftly, I don’t think anyone would have got there in time to save me. Seeing someone with such hate in this eyes- someone who wants to kill you- makes you question things, and it made me wonder about the price of fame. There was so much chaos in my life at the time. After the attack I decided it was time to withdraw from the public eye before anything worse happened.”
“I’ve always been driven to accomplish something with my life for myself and not just take handouts from my family. It would have been easy to sit back and live off my family, but I wanted to be independent and make my family proud. Now I’m moving into the hotel business and it feels the natural next step. I’ve always been inspired by my grandfather and how he grew this huge empire from nothing. It’s something I look up to. People have never got to know the real Paris Hilton. They remember me for falling out of nightclubs and messing around on a reality show. But that was just a character I was playing. You should see me in a business meeting. I have changed a great deal in the past few years. I’m not some ditzy blonde who can get pushed around. I’m a tough businesswoman.”
Stunning heiress Paris Hilton had to undergo quite a painful treatment at the dentist this week. The blonde had 4 difficult wisdom teeth removed- a common procedure in the States, with a reputation for being quite nasty.
She kept her 10 million Twitter followers up to speed with her progress: “Dreading going to the dentist today to get my wisdom teeth removed. Been looking at videos of it on YouTube. This is going to be brutal! In the dentist chair about to be put under for my wisdom teeth removal surgery. Wish me luck! Just finished. They had to remove all 4 of my wisdom teeth. Still feeling dizzy from the anesthesia, hopefully the pain won’t be that bad. Happy my ❤ @RealRiverViiperi is here to pick me up at the dentist & drive me home to take of of me. #HottestDoctorEver. Aw, my love
@riverviiperi is so sweet! Made me my favorite Breakfast in bed. I love French toast!”
“Laying in bed with
@RiverViiperi & my puppies watching #BatesMotel. Recovering from my wisdom teeth surgery. Ouch! It hurts so much! Laying in bed. Can’t sleep. Hurts so much to get 4 wisdom teeth pulled out at once. In so much pain. #Brutal #IHateGoingToTheDentist.”
“I feel so lucky! All my friends said they had chipmunk cheeks after they had their wisdom teeth removed. But I still have my same cheeks and feel great! So lucky to have the best boyfriend in the world. Taking care of me, he just made me my favorite soups for dinner. Love my
Hopefully the pain won’t deter her from singing…she replied to a fan online this week saying that we’d have new music by the summer! Awesome!
Paris Hilton‘s boyfriend River Viiperi spent Sunday (and the heiress’ birthday) in hospital following a fairly major ski accident, following which he had to have 19 stitches in his leg.
The socialite posted about her beau online: “Such a scary day on the slopes today. After seeing the gash on @RiverViiperi‘s leg, I almost passed out. I have never seen a cut that deep in my life. He is so brave, I can’t even imagine the pain he went through today. Just got out of the hospital with
@RiverViiperi ☹ He was doing a high jump while skiing & the ski sliced in to his leg! 19 stitches! ☹ Oww!”
River gushed: “Back in Lalaland safe & sound thanks to my gorgeous blondie
@ParisHilton always taking such good care of me #LoveU. Thank you for being there for me my Love, your the best Girlfriend in the world! I’m so lucky to have you!”
“NOT for weak stomaches! A little something of what happened to me today while skiing.
#19Stiches. Happy Birthday to the most beautiful girl in the universe! My gorgeous blondie @ParisHilton she deserves the best! I’m so happy to be part of her life! Love her so much! She is so incredible, I’ve never felt so special, she means the world to me. #TrueLove #HappyBdayLove #ILoveYou.“
Paris Hilton has got herself into hot water with the gay community after making derogatory comments about their sexual activities. She was recorded by a New York taxi driver criticising gay men who have sex with strangers after being told about a new app called ‘Grindr‘, where gay men can find partners. She insisted: “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS… I would be so scared if I were a gay guy. You’ll like, die of AIDS.”
In a new, and deeply apologetic statement, she says: “As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community. I am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families with the comments heard this morning. I was having this private conversation with a friend of mine who is gay and our conversation was in no way towards the entire gay community.”
“It is the last thing that I would ever want to do and I cannot put into words how much I wish I could take back every word. HIV/AIDS can hurt anyone, gay and straight, men and women. It’s something I take very seriously and should not have been thrown around in conversation. Gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know. It is so wrong when people bully or put down others for being gay. No one should have to go through that. Again, I am so sorry from the bottom of my heart and I feel absolutely horrible. I hope that everyone can accept my apology and know that it is not who I am or how I feel in any way. Thank you for taking a minute to read this, I love you.”
Kind-hearted philanthropist/ celebrity Paris Hilton has donated $5,000 to one of her biggest supporters in order to pay for surgery. After meeting him in a Hollywood club earlier this month, she became so moved by his personal battle with ‘muscular dystrophy’ she decided to help him in any way. In a ‘YouTube‘ video he’s created to commemorate the experience, Mike describes their meeting: “I met her about a week-and-a-half ago… I just thought she was a very sweet person… We became friends and… she just sent me $5,000 and saved my life, literally. Words cannot express how I feel. I just want to say, Paris, I love you, thank you so much.”
Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian have finally buried the hatchet and made up after sharing a touching heart-to-heart in Cannes. They famously entered the ‘frenemy’ territory in 2009 when Kim outgrew the lowly role of the socialite’s best friend after a surge in her popularity.
The pair reconciled at the ‘amfAR‘ gala on Thursday, and witnesses have told the ‘New York Post‘ that they “were amazed to see them all smiles, and that they “hugged, smiled and chatted for a while.” The source tipped them off that: “They really have no problem with each other; it has been a long time.”
Paris hasn’t mentioned Kim directly on Twitter, but did post a friendly message:”There are some people in life that make you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live just a little bit better. Had such a lovely time last night at the ‘amFAR‘ charity event. An amazing foundation that has a really great cause. What a fun night!” The fall out was triggered when Paris was asked if she was a has-been who has been overshadowed by Kim, as Paris wasn’t pleased when Kim stepped into the limelight. The feud came to a head when Paris went crazy when Kim ignored her at a Vegas bash.
She’s been called one of the world’s most over-exposed celebrities before, and a new interview with Paris Hilton proves that she doesn’t ever want to lose that celebrity status.
During a pre-recorded TV interview with Australian broadcasters ‘Channel 7‘, the heiress reportedly flipped off camera when she was asked about plans for her life after her fame ends. She managed to make it through the segment without exploding by replying hastily with an answer about plans for motherhood, but you could see the shock in her eyes at the cheek of the reporter!
Her PR team confronted the cheeky journalist straight after, and they were banned from ever interviewing the socialite again. She is currently in Sydney for the opening of new club ‘Marquee‘, where boyfriend DJ Afrojack will DJ. In the clip below, reporter Edwina Bartholomew (what a name!) suggested that she had been uninvited from the festivities following their confrontation.
But since their disagreement, Paris has decided to take the high road and make her more than welcome to attend, writing: “Hi Edwina, It was great to meet you yesterday. I just heard that someone told you I was upset with the interview and that you aren’t welcome at the event tonight. I thought the interview went well, maybe someone else was unhappy but I wasn’t. Please consider this a personal invitation from me for you to join us tonight. Hope to see you there!”
The embarrassed (and slightly arrogant) reporter replied: “For those who give 2 hoots, yes, Paris did (re)invite me tonight. No, I won’t be going. Off on a road trip to a mate’s wedding in Cooma!” Ooh, bitchy! I certainly wouldn’t turn down any invite from her.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa and his model girlfriend Amber Rose have got engaged after 1 year of dating. He and Amber started dating shortly after her split from Kanye West in 2010, and have even got tattoos of each others names on their bodies.
Amber didn’t waste any time in posting a snap of her enormous ring on Twitter: “This is the happiest day of my Life #LoveisBeautiful. We Love all you Rosebuds, Rosestuds & Taylors so much! Thank you for all your love and support for your Muva & Fava’s Engagement!” Wiz added: “She said yes!”
Messages of congratulations have been pouring in from famous friends. Snoop Dogg wrote: “Congrats to my nef @realwizkhalifa and @darealamberrose on the engagement!” Paris Hilton added: “Congratulations @DaRealAmberRose & @RealWizKhalifa on your engagement! You make the perfect couple, so happy for you both!”
In recent months, they’ve spent a lot of time in the studio creating Amber‘s debut album, and her 1st single, which will be called ‘Fame.’
