Life & Style: Paris Hilton and Brittany Flickinger broke up
An insider at Life & Style confirmed that Paris Hilton and Brittany Flickinger aren’t friends. “Insiders” quoted in magazines are highly unreliable, but here’s what the possibly non-existant source said. The info may not necessarily be 100% accurate, but it is pretty clear that the friendship was long over.
“They haven’t spoken in two months. All that girl wanted was the free trips, the goodie bags, staying at Paris’ mansion and the parties and clubs. She was desperate for money.”
“She was another one of these girls using Paris to get famous. We’ve seen it happen a million times. In January at Sundance, Paris realized everything everyone was telling her was the truth.”

Give it a couple of months and we’ll hear the exact same thing about Doug.

lol @ scot. I hate to say it, but I think that’s what’s going to happen down the line.. I can never trust the Hollywood types.
Well, how can Paris find a decent boyfriend then? I don’t know why, but I think juju is right. She needs to find a wealthy European guy! For some reason, I get the impression that Europeans are more gentlemanly. lol

Sorry but Brittany really really doesn’t seem like this. I listened to some podcast interviews with her and she never ever came across like this. She seemed sad that Paris wanted to do more BFF shows because she geniunely thought her & Paris’s friendship was great. Articles like this make me sad.

Hollywood types are just money and fame hungry whores with over sized egos. Paris is attracted to that confidence and we’ve all said this, she’s in love with the idea of being in love so she falls so much easier than the average person. I agree a wealthy European guy would be perfect for Paris, a wealthy English man. It’s odd but I don’t think she can trust an average Joe. Paris’ generosity even to the nicest people would make them think ohh… she’s buying me clothes; she took me on a holiday… maybe she’ll get me a $100,000 car. It’s a weird sort of chain reaction, the gifts and such start getting more and more expensive and whoever Paris is doing it for just gets greedy. She needs someone with money because they don’t care. They have their own money; they can buy anything they want so Paris doesn’t have to feel the need to share. That person would already be in the extravagant lifestyle. If Paris ever goes to Dubai, I could imagine her getting with one of Princes. That would be a perfect match I think.
The only boyfriend that I think has been good for Paris is Benji. He had his own money; he was a genuinely nice guy. But in the end I think they were too different. But I’m going with an English man, because she loves London or a Prince from Dubai!

Paris wants to prolong the BFF franchise which is understandable. Brittany had money issues i.e questioning who pays the expensive stuff (no surprise considering who she is rolling with) and brought them up in front of Nicky and her friends during the BFF Aftershow (Inner Circle). I don’t think she was trying to freeload- she just didn’t have it. I liked Brit but given that she kept a comb in her hair and showered every third day (she said so on BFF and Inner Circle), I doubted the two would be compatible for very long. To seriously roll with Paris and Nicky you need to be of that ilk. Paris was kind enough to get her at least one modeling contract (pics on flickr). Others have echoed that the BFF shows are entertainment only and I would agree.

I was the first to predict that Paris and Doug would not last, but that is for several reasons. The fact that Hollywood types based on their hedonistic, self-serving conduct and lack of accountability and discipline eventually run into some conflicts of interest.
On top of that, Paris is more in love with the concept of being in love than she is actually in love with the person she is with. One other huge component going against her success for a committed monogamous relationship is her personality type.
She has a perfect model for such a relationship that she claims to want right in front of her pretty face, but her personality type is not conducive to such a relationship. I used to believe she was perhaps a Type 3 personality with a Type 4 wing, but now I believe she is a Type 7 personality with a Type 8 wind, and her Instinctual variant is either Sexual or Self-Preservational.
I could be wrong, but that is what I believe I see in her at this time. I don’t necessarily believe that Paris needs someone who is already wealthy because they “don’t need the money.” The reason for that is I know quite a few wealthy people and one thing they seem to have in common is the desire for even more money. They may have more than most do, but that doesn’t mean their appetites for it are satiated.
This category as well as the idea of Paris being suited for a European person is merely a stereotype. I think it boils down to the type of person, a specific type of person that Paris would benefit from being with who could give her wealth that is not necessarily tangible. In fact, I believe I know who the perfect man for Paris is, and it isn’t because of social hierarchy or financial status, like it often is in Hollywood…. after all, look at the statistics for their successful relationships (long term), they suck.
In general, Hollywood types are too self-centered to think of “we” for the long term, and they turn that “w” upside down, so “we” becomes “me”.
I can honestly say that I would not want Paris to buy me a car for 100 grand, or drown me in gifts. If I was her friend or boyfriend, I would remind her that the relationship is based on the heart and it’s not a “transaction”. Love can’t be purchased, and ironically, the priceless value of love only maintains its priceless value when it’s given freely.
I would likely accept some gifts here and there, but if one starts seeing her as a source of materialism, all they are doing is just prostituting themselves. If I was in a relationship and loved her that way, I would be upset/hurt that she would feel she had to purchase my loyalty or affections, because frankly, those who get involved in relationships for such reasons doom it to failure.
In a way, I feel bad for her, because I know it eludes her and she will never achieve it because she keeps doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result. She forgot to look at the common denominator and take an honest, accurate inventory and make an adjusted plan and try again. I know exactly what goes wrong for her.
As for Brittany, who knows. I sense something is wrong by Paris’s physiology when she is asked about it. Her body tells me things that her mouth doesn’t. I did find it a bit weird that she wore a comb in her hair, and I am surprised she would have gone 2 to 3 days without showering. Socialites might not see that so favorably. I didn’t know about other interviews where Brittany seemed sad about Paris taking on other BFF tasks (shows). The thing is, once again, business and personal lines are blurred because it is a business venture for Paris who may find someone she actually likes, which is cool, but she would see it first as a business thing. The people competing may legitimately become so attached to her and won’t see it as such a business venture like Paris would and when Paris is around less and less because she is keeping up with the demands of “her brand”, that person will probably feel left out and hurt. With all the different BFF shows, you will hear her say one thing in all of them… “I can only have one true BFF” and I always smile when I hear that because I know damn well it isn’t true.
I love Paris Hilton dearly, but she is as human and flawed as the rest of us, but she just happens to have a whole lot more resources, and a whole lot less restrictions.

I don’t know whether the article is true or not but I don’t believe it. The tabloids expect them to be photographed together 24/7 otherwise they start rumors. Britney and Paris are friends and Paris and Nicole are friends and she has many other friends yet they haven’t been photographed together in along time. Just cause there are no recent pictures doesn’t mean they aren’t friends anymore. What’s next for those tabloids, maybe saying since Paris wasn’t photographed with her brother Conrad anymore that they aren’t siblings anymore? That’s almost as silly.
Anonymous Brittany has done modeling before. She didn’t need Paris to get her modeling contracts or record deals. As for Britt’s style, Paris said Brittany is a tomboy and she likes that about her.

I was a contestant on the show. I got eliminated however. But, I can tell you why they’re not “friends.” They never were. The contract stated the grand prize was several trips with paris and night club appearances, as well as sundance. Once those trips and appearances were over they stopped talking. And they never had a daily friendship. It was strictly appearances due to contract, then bye bye.

That is the thing about the media, if they don’t get any info, they start to conjure up theories and purport them as truth. Like war, the first casualty in journalism is the truth.
I found another peice of “journalism” once again claiming how Paris promised herself she would spend one year single, for herself before thinking about getting with someone again. I knew that would not last because she has never really been alone, and for her, I think she sees that as either scary, a reflection on her self-worth, or perhaps both.
In this piece it claims an insider said that Paris saw Benji as too controlling and strict and boring. Doug was funny and sweet, and fun to be with. Well, again, another truth because unless it was edited, I heard it from Paris’s own sexy mouth that she and Benji just had too much going on in their own careers. They were so very different, but the break up was amicable and they are still friends.
I think Hollywood’s version of friends might be a bit different. I think they use the term a little loosely and they call a person a friend who I might call an acquaintance.

To Someone who knows, the contract is probably written that way cause they probably need an exit clause.
Time: April 3, 2009, 12:12 am
It’s a show, just a show! If paris finds some new friends that she sees from time to time, then great. but having built the expectation that they were actually going to be inseparable, best friends to sell the show, well then, c’mon, who is really so naive as to believe that.
i tend to believe the winner would get some perk trips. i think paris went too far in allowing the cameras in her home…hello? R-O-B-B-E-R-Y!
but after saying all thta, i’m not surprised to hear brittany became a mooch. i think anyone could ge used to the lifestyle pretty darn quick and get carried away.
oh, and how did her “break up” (funny term for ths situation) with brittany F get translated into a break up with doug…or did i miss something?
Time: April 3, 2009, 12:16 am
oh, and for those pontificating on “hollywood-type”s and their break-up rate, blah, blah, bllah…sorry but statistically, hollywood folks’ relationship length is the same as everyone elses. their break-ups just happen in the public eye, that’s all. so talk about stereo-typing…just because someone is in the entertainment industry doesn’t make them less moral than anyone else.
Time: April 3, 2009, 1:33 am
Actually, people in the entertainment industry do tend to have.. ‘different’ morals to the usual persons. Its a competition of who can get the parts, who can get the award. Hollywood is highschool, just more expensive and even more bitching. Doug is the cliche hollywood guy. I brought up Doug because its obvious that this exact same thing will come out when her and Doug break up. I dont get why your getting all angry juju, a couple of us, including admin have agreed about what type of guys you think Paris should be with.

How does a stereotype become a stereotype, except through commonality? Hollywood people have a much more relaxed moral set than most people, and it may be a stereotype, but it is for a reason. People in the entertainment industry have a great deal more wealth, which buys a lot more freedom. Most of them tend to be hedonistic and selfish and don’t necessarily believe the restrictions applied to most people apply to them.
I absolutely love Paris Hilton, I really do. I am even getting a lot of hate mail for taking up for her, because they don’t want to see her in a positive light. I do know that celebrities tend to be far less inhibited than most when they are feeling free from prying public eyes…..
I have a photo of Paris in a tanning booth showing herself in a rather uninhibited “pose”, so to speak. I’m not going to elaborate on the pose, because I know darn sure it is a photo she wouldn’t put on her MySpace page, for example. I know by most conventional peoples standards, that photo would shock them.
It’s just a matter of being honest enough to call a spade a spade, and knowing a stereotype gets to be a stereotype because of commonality of elements, but by the same token, being open enough to take each person on an individual basis.
To do otherwise is to willfully close ones eyes to the truth all in the name of being fearful of offending someone with that truth.

Thanks for the insight Someone who knows. I have to wonder who you are now lol.
A little dissapointing, but maybe I was gullable for thinking Paris does really care about the winner as a friend in Brittany & also Sam for example & not just considers them winners of the show designed to prodominently give her more press.
I get the show is gona be faux’ed up a little bit, but I really thought they were geniuenly friends. Maybe I WANTED to believe it.

Someone who knows:
That is a logical, but harsh description. It works to keep her in the media, though. The BFF who forgot what “forever” means. Then Paris’s people will invent a reason why that person was not BFF material later on. That is almost sociopathic, but I really don’t want to see Paris in that light. That reminded me of the scene with Paris and the last 2 remaining, at the hotel roof. That would absolutely crush gay little Sammy, when the time comes to say bye-bye BBF, if he really feels this way about Paris. Were you one of the last 4?

i love the “moral superiors” here, what rubbish!
and scot, WTF r u goinging on about now?
Time: June 8, 2009, 3:57 pm
I seriously dont believe that this is true. Okay, she might be using Paris for the money but I AM 100% SURE PARIS DID NOT HAVE ANY INTENTION OF KEEPING HER AS A BFF. I SWEAR! she’s always trying to find out who’s the fakest, who’s lying and all that, but seriously, I bet indeed PARIS HILTON IS THE FAKEST ONE. She doesn’t want no friend; all shes looking for is jsut the money from the BFF shows.
Time: June 24, 2010, 4:28 am
look…..paris let the girl into her home, spent the holidays with her, took her out to clubs and parties and even SUNDANCE! I watched the show-none of the girls had any personality. Brittany looked the most interesting, and I thought maybe she is just shy around the cameras…but after the show ended and paris took her out in public, the girl never ever smiles, never looks happy, and they eat their fancy meals in silence. EVEN ON THE SHOW, after getting a thousand dollar icecream, brittany barely ate it. WTF?!I would’ve devoured it and raved about it the whole time. Boring people are not fun BFF’s-paris found out the hard way.and guess what-brittany immediately trash talked paris, just like she trashed vanessa and everybody else.she is a negative person and uninteresting.i would’ve got tired of her too.
