Paris Hilton’s wisdom immortalised in book of quotations

Paris Whitney Hilton (born February 17, 1981) is an American socialite, heiress, media personality, model, singer, author, fashion designer and actress.

Hilton is known for her appearance in a sex tape in 2003, her appearance on the television series The Simple Life, her several minor film roles (most notably her role in the horror film House of Wax in 2005), her 2004 tongue-in-cheek autobiography, her 2006 music album Paris, and her work in modeling. As a result of several legal incidents, Hilton also served a widely publicized sentence in a Los Angeles County jail in 2007.

Personal life

Hilton was engaged to fashion model Jason Shaw from mid-2002 to early 2003. In 2003-2004 she had a relationship with singer Nick Carter. Later she was engaged to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis, from May 29, 2005 to November 2005. Thereafter, she began dating another Greek shipping heir, Stavros Niarchos III, before breaking up in May 2006. In early 2008, she was spotted with Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden and in May, Hilton announced her intention to marry Madden during interview with television talk-show host David Letterman. The two broke up in November 2008, and “remain very good friends”. She began dating The Hills star Doug Reinhardt in February 2009; Hilton has also referred to her intention to marry Reinhardt, saying “He’s gonna be my husband.” The couple broke up in June 2009, only to be seen back together again in August of the same year.

Hilton told Live with Regis and Kelly: “One-night stands are not for me. I think it’s gross when you just give it up. Guys want you more, if you don’t just hand it to them on a platter.”

Hilton loves small dogs, and lives with a Yorkshire Terrier and a female Chihuahua named Tinkerbell. Paris Hilton is frequently seen carrying Tinkerbell (dubbed an “accessory dog”) at social events and functions, and in all five seasons of television reality show The Simple Life. In 2004, Tinkerbell “authored” a memoir, The Tinkerbell Hilton Diaries. On August 12, 2004, Tinkerbell went missing after Hilton’s apartment was burgled, and a $5,000 reward was offered for her safe return. She was found six days later. By December 1, 2004, Tinkerbell was again spotted with Paris Hilton at various events. Hilton has also purchased a male Chihuahua on July 25, 2007 from Pets of Bel Air in Los Angeles. Hilton’s love for man’s best friend led her to create an apparel line for dogs called Little Lily by Paris Hilton, with some of the proceeds going to benefit animal rescue. “I have 17 dogs and I like to dress them, so I started designing this clothing line and it’s really cute, like dresses and jeans — everything you can imagine for humans, but for dogs,” she said in an interview during Super Bowl XLII festivities. Hilton’s love for her dogs led to the rumor that she wanted to be frozen with them at the Cryonics Institute, but Hilton denied the rumor on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

A homemade sex video of Hilton and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked on the Internet in 2003, later released as the DVD 1 Night in Paris despite attempted legal action. It appeared a week prior to the premiere of The Simple Life.

On December 20, 2008 around 4:00 am, a man in a hooded sweater and gloves entered Hilton’s Mulholland Estates, Los Angeles home and stole $2 million dollars worth of jewelry and other items from her bedroom. Hilton was not home at the time and nobody was injured in the home invasion. There is speculation that it was an inside job.

to be immortalised alongside remarks by some of the greatest thinkers of all time in the latest edition of the Oxford Book of Quotations — and she reckons it’s “so cool”.

Hilton, the socialite turned reality TV star and retailing phenomenon, is listed in the latest version of the 65-year-old dictionary, released this week, alongside the likes of Confucius, Oscar Wilde and Stephen Hawking.

Her contribution? “Dress cute wherever you go, life is too short to blend in.”

Hilton, 28, was delighted to be featured in the book which is a renowned list of memorable sayings.

“So cool that I have a quote in the dictionary,” she wrote on her Twitter page.

Another new entry in the seventh edition of the Oxford University Press publication is Sarah Palin.

The former vice-presidential candidate makes the cut for her most famous quip: “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick.”

More than 20,000 new quotations have been added to the dictionary including President Barack Obama for saying: “The arc of history is long but it bends towards justice.”

Others came from the likes of British author Terry Pratchett — using an “embuggerance” to describe his Alzheimer’s — and from author Fay Weldon: “Guilt is to motherhood as grapes are to wine.”

Victoria Beckham in 50s retro bikini

Victoria Caroline Beckham (née Adams; born 17 April 1974) is an English singer, songwriter, dancer, fashion designer, author, businesswoman, actress and model.

During her rise to fame with 1990’s pop group the Spice Girls, Beckham was dubbed Posh Spice, a nickname first coined by the British pop music magazine, Top of the Pops, in their July, 1996, issue. Since the Spice Girls followed separate careers, she has dabbled in pop music, scoring four UK Top 10 singles as a solo artist. Her first single to be released, “Out of Your Mind”, reached number two in the UK Singles Chart and is her highest chart entry to date. During her solo music career she has been signed to Virgin Records and Telstar Records.

Career

Spice Girls

Victoria Adams (as she then was) joined the all-girl group Spice Girls, first called “Touch,” in 1994, with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm. She had previously answered an advertisement in The Stage in March 1993 which required girls who were “street smart, extrovert, ambitious and able to sing and dance”.

The group’s first single, “Wannabe”, went to number one in the UK and the United States and India, and would be followed by eight other successful number one singles from their albums, Spice, Spiceworld and Forever. Each member of the group received a nickname from the media. Victoria was called Posh Spice because of her refined attitude, form-fitting designer outfits, such as little black dresses, and her love of high-heeled footwear. The group was one of the most successful pop acts of the 1990s, selling over fifty-five million records worldwide. After the release of their third album, Forever (UK#2), which was much less successful than their previous two albums, the Spice Girls stopped recording, leading Beckham to try to build a solo career.

It seems things really are going swimmingly for Victoria Beckham.

The former Spice Girl, who has reinvented herself as a high-fashion style icon, appears in the pages of America’s Elle magazine in a playful Fifties bikini.

The 35-year-old put her incredibly lean figure on show in the retro Diane von Furstenberg two-piece which features a sweetheart neckline and high-waisted bloomers.

But of course it wasn’t without a touch of Posh – the ensemble included an outrageous oversized bow headband and of course, a pair of impractical Nina Ricci platform boots.

With a toned down tan, smokey eye make-up and lashings of red lipstick, she poses poolside with a blue umbrella.

The mother-of-three is also pictured wearing a dramatic Valentino gown with reams of tulle and in another shot she is perched on a pool lounge in one of her own designs.

She also opened up about how she coped being apart from her husband David Beckham while during his stint with AC Milan.

‘I felt like someone had chopped my arm off, to be completely honest,’ she says. ‘Everything we do, we do together. I very rarely go out on my own, unless it’s a work commitment.’

On the couple’s family life away from the spotlight, she says: ‘David and I have a working relationship together, and we also have a private life together. Someone used the example recently of Brad and Angelina.

‘They might be in a movie together, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to let someone film them at home. I don’t do ‘at homes’ with my family. I don’t march my kids down red carpets.

‘It’s just not how we choose to do things.’

Kim Cattrall turns clock back to Samantha’s days as a punk princess in Sex And The City sequel

Kim Cattrall turns clock back to Samantha’s days as a punk princess in Sex And The City sequel

Kim Victoria Cattrall (pronounced , rhyming with shall; born 21 August 1956) is a Canadian actress. She is known for her role as Samantha Jones in the HBO comedy/romance series Sex and the City, and for her leading roles in the 1980s films Police Academy, Big Trouble in Little China, and Mannequin.

Career

Cattrall began her career before graduating from high school in 1972, when she left Canada for the United States. There, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and upon her graduation signed a five-year movie deal with director Otto Preminger, making her film debut in Preminger’s Rosebud in 1975. A year later, Universal Studios bought out that contract and Cattrall became one of the last participants of the Universal Contract Player System. During her time with Universal, she guest-starred in numerous television programmes of varying style and genre. In 1979, she played Dr. Gabrielle White in The Incredible Hulk and would go down in TV Hulk lore as one of the few characters who knew David Banner was alive and was the Hulk. In a successful transition to cinema, Cattrall starred opposite Jack Lemmon in his Oscar-nominated movie Tribute in 1980. The following year, she starred in the critically acclaimed Ticket to Heaven. She also had a guest role in the TV Mini-Series Scruples.

In 1982, Cattrall played Miss Honeywell (Lassie) in Porky’s, followed two years later by a role in the original Police Academy. In 1985, she starred in three movies: Turk 182, City Limits and Hold-Up, the latter with French star Jean-Paul Belmondo. In 1986, she played Kurt Russell’s brainy flame in the action film Big Trouble in Little China. In 1987, her lead role in Mannequin proved a huge success with audiences. One of her best-known film roles is that of Lieutenant Valeris in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

In Sex And The City, Samantha Jones is known among her friends and numerous lovers for her wild, flamboyant personality and style.

And as actress Kim Cattrall filmed a flashback scene for the SATC film sequel in New York today, it seems Sam’s brave dress sense stems back to the Eighties.

The 53-year-old actress rolled back the years – and the good taste – as she donned a pair of snake-print, fishnet leggings, a yellow and purple leopard-print vest, a denim studded waistcoat and red PVC ankle boots.

Looking every inch the Eighties punk princess, Kim wore a bushy peroxide blonde wig and carried a retro Sony Walkman on her belt.

In the scene, the twentysomething Samantha narrowly misses getting run over by a brown car as she dashes over Fifth Avenue near the Bergdorf Goodman department store.

After the car screeches to a halt in front of her and the driver starts beeping, feisty Sam gives him the finger before continuing her journey.

And it appears the scene in a case of history repeating itself after Kim filmed an identical scene – set in present day – several days ago.

Samantha’s wild look is in stark contrast to Kim’s real-life appearance in the Eighties, who was an upcoming actress starring in Mannequin and Big Trouble In Little China at the time.
