    Paris Hilton to visit Quebec to present “Paris, Not France” in August or in Fall

    According to Canoe, TVA Films, a French Canadian channel, confirmed today that they have acquired the rights to air “Paris, Not France” in Quebec, Canada.

    Also, Paris Hilton is expected to visit Quebec to present and attend the premiere of the documentary, in August or in Fall! But the article doesn’t mention where exactly… should be Montreal.

    The president of TVA Films, Yves Dion, said a few comments about the documentary. These aren’t exact quotes, since I translated them from French to English and removed some unimportant parts:

    It’s a very interesting documentary about a famous star who played a character in public, but is also a businesswoman. All of a sudden, she wants people to discover the real Paris Hilton. She told me that she loves Quebec and Canada a lot, and that Canadians were real and honest.

    For the first time, the movie explores the businesswoman she really is and asks this question: Why is the world so fascinated by Paris Hilton? Her parents, Donald Trump and other friends are also in the documentary. The shocking documentary reveals the real image behind the star.

    She chose to play the “blonde” girl. For her, the image is also a game. Now, she wants to be known for something else. The documentary is a very important step for her, I believe. We’re proud to present it in Quebec.

    Another Paris Hilton interview about My BFF 2

    Q: What are your favorite qualities about yourself that you’d like to have in a best friend?

    Paris: My favorite qualities about myself are that I’m very giving, I have a big heart, I care about people, I’m fun, and that’s what I want in a best friend. I want someone who’s a good person with a big heart, who has empathy towards people, and who is a positive influence.

    Q: What can viewers expect from Season 2 of My New BFF?

    Paris: Season 2 is off the hook. It was so much fun! I had the best time doing it. It’s a million times better than the first season. The characters on the show are so funny. They’re so much more real. I just had such a great time. It’s all about the sisterhood, so it was like having my own Paris sorority, which was a lot of fun. There was hazing. Some of the things I put them through were kind of brutal, but it makes for really great television.

    Q: What’s different about the show, this time around?

    Paris: This time, I think I’m a lot harder on them. Last year was a lot of fun and games, but this year, I really wanted to weed out the users and the losers, and people who I thought just wanted to be on television or just wanted to use me to make themselves famous. So, this time, I really made them do a lot of tests and put them through really harsh challenges. It was very different from last season, and a lot more fun. I can’t wait for everyone to see it on June 2nd.

    Judge wonders: would more promotion from Paris Hilton have had an impact on Pledge This!’s success?

    Reported and written by Home Media Magazine (Chris Tribbey)

    A lawsuit against Paris Hilton for allegedly failing to promote a direct-to-DVD release will go forward as planned June 8, after the judge in the case refused to dismiss it May 18.

    First filed in August 2008, the suit brought by Miami-based Worldwide Entertainment Group alleged that Hilton broke her contract after she was paid $1 million to appear in the film National Lampoon’s Pledge This and promote it, but failed to do the latter. Vivendi Visual Entertainment distributed the DVD in 2006.

    “The record evinces triable issues of fact as to whether Ms. Hilton was unavailable to promote the DVD release of the movie and whether any failure to promote the DVD release prevented a recovery of costs on the film,” U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno wrote in his refusal to dismiss the case against Paris Hilton Entertainment.

    In the agreement between Hilton and Worldwide, the hotel heiress was required to perform “reasonable promotion and publicity services, with respect to the Picture subject to Artist’s professional availability.” But the judge wrote that he has been unable “to ascertain whether Ms. Hilton was actually unavailable to fulfill the promotion requests, or if she merely determined to ignore those requests based on personal distaste for the outcome of the film.”

    “Assuming Ms. Hilton failed to promote the DVD release of the film, as required by the Agreement, [Worldwide] still must prove that her breach caused damages. The Court concludes that the parties factually dispute the impact of Ms. Hilton’s lack of promotion for the DVD,” the judge concluded.

    Lawyers for Worldwide, which is now defunct, claim Hilton’s failure to promote Pledge This cost investors of the film more than $8 million. Original damages sought against Hilton in the Aug. 12, 2008 filing were more than $75,000.

    Paris Hilton interviewed about My BFF 2

    Hollyscoop: So what can we expect from season two?
    Paris Hilton: “The contestants are out of control, there’s so much drama, and the person who won this time is actually real and is in it for the right reason. They are my BFF for the right reasons. It was fun because it was like a sorority, so there was a lot of hazing, and a lot of crazy challenges. I was very strict this season around because I didn’t want to be tricked again.”

    HS: Did you find that having that sorority atmosphere helped you build that sisterhood friendship that you find in a BFF?:
    Paris: “Yeah definitely! I think a BFF should be like a sister, someone that you trust, someone who is there for you, someone who is your friend for the right reasons and not just out for themselves, or just because they want to be on TV. It was so much fun and I’m just watching the first couple of episodes right now and it’s hysterical and I love it!”
