Paris Hilton was in a Miami courtroom last week, defending herself against a breach-of-contract lawsuit over her promise to promote Pledge This!, a 2006 movie starring Hilton as a student at the made-up South Beach University.
The Miami Herald was there, sitting right behind the famous defendant until a bailiff said the public couldn’t sit in the front spectator booth anymore. Ah, the celebrity life.
We can report that Hilton’s lunch order before she took the stand Friday afternoon was a double cheeseburger and a barbecue chicken sandwich, plus a salad with ranch dressing on the side. “I’m starving,” she whispered to the Miami lawyer fetching the food. And while other witnesses testified, Hilton highlighted text in a paperback book she was careful to keep completely hidden throughout the trial. And she doodled a full-page picture of a cat. Here are our favorite quotes from Hilton’s testimony:
“I’m an Aquarius, so I’m very creative.”
On her 2008 film The Hottie and the Nottie: “I thought the movie was really good and really funny. It’s embarrassing, but it totally bombed.”
“I would never do the inside of a men’s magazine. I would only do the cover.”
“You’re my best judge forever,” she said to Chief Judge Federico Moreno, who had asked the meaning of her new show’s title, Paris Hilton’s My New BFF.
“Every year for my birthday, I get paid to go to Vegas.”

I wouldn’t have reported this if there was something else to post in these boring times.
But isn’t funny how these journalists always report unimportant (or funny) quotes for us to laugh at Paris? I’m sure there were tons of other stuffs she said, but those things don’t get reported.
……Meh, that’s just me trashing journalists again.

These journalists always trash Paris. Ergo they should get trashed at every opportunity themselves.

I don’t think any of these quotes are that bad anyway, despite the journalist’s attempts in using them that way?
Whether you believe any of the star stuff or not, Aquarians are known to be both sociable and creative.
Other women have been on the cover of a men’s magazine (for being the main interview of the issue for instance) without doing a nude pictorial. There’s nothing wrong with going nude but there’s nothing wrong with deciding it’s not for you either.
Paris and others among us are entitled to think Hottie was a fun and decent enough movie, despite it’s box office failure. Personally I liked it a lot more than Repo (as I did just about anything I’ve ever seen Paris in) and box office doesn’t equal quality. It’s okay to have your own personal tastes and opinions, regardless of box office, reviews or what internet trolls think. Of course, didn’t Hottie do worse cinema box office than Pledge? If so, that’s the perfect example of Paris being the star of a movie and promoting it doesn’t equal instant millions for everyone involved. Even House Of Wax didn’t do as well as it should have and that was a far slicker and more professional production.
Hands up anyone who wouldn’t want to be paid to go to Vegas for their birthday?
Paris’s cuteness and gushing with the judge might backfire of course if things don’t go well or if it prejudices him to think she’s not taking it seriously enough or trying to sway him. The case is ridiculous and I hope it’s justice and truth that wins the day.
I’m glad to see that the rumour about Paris going vegetarian isn’t true, personally. I hope the rumours about Paris retiring from acting are equally false. I know Paris has it hard getting her movies to turn a profit or get taken seriously, but this is one of my favourite outlets for her and I keep hoping that one day she will get the right role or movie that will start to turn things around for her. On a selfish level, I just want to see her in more movies (proper roles, not five minutes in the whole movie with some of her best scenes ending up on the cutting room floor).

We can be sure that some of what she said is quoted out of context.
As for her supposedly being “cute” in court, what the hell is that supposed to mean.
Evidently the judge was cracking a few jokes and she responded. Paris does have a quick wit.
MSNBC reported that she answered professionally on the stand.
Her black dress was conservative and not at all tight, as some trashy websites tried to spin it.
She evidently has a pretty good grasp of the big picture when it comes to her businesses, although she hires people to do the detail work. Most business owners do that.
After hearing the arguments from both sides last Friday, one would hope that the judge can see through the motivations of those bankruptcy lawyers.

I agree with almost everything you said, and everything you wrote is true. You expressed my thoughts, but personally, I think Repo! is a far better movie than Hottie. Hottie is just a typical fun comedy movie, and that’s about it. Repo! is something else that will be remembered for a long time!
But this is nothing more than personal opinion and taste. 🙂

so when is this case going to wrap up anyway?
Time: July 16, 2009, 9:55 pm
The judge hasn’t made a decision yet, so it is still “to be continued..”
