Why would Paris Hilton hang out with hater Kathy Griffin?

On Wednesday afternoon, Paris Hilton was out shopping with the very unlikeable Kathy Griffin at the Kitson store, on Robertson Boulevard.

According to some reports, Kathy was filming her reality show “My Life on the D-List.” One may wonder why Paris would consider hanging out with her, after all the bad-mouthing she has done about Paris in the past. For example, this offensive video!

This can hardly be surprising, considering that in Hollywood, if you are not talking about people negatively behind their backs, and buttering them up to their faces, you would be considered a tourist.

For the most, celebrities are as shallow as a mud puddle, and have as many faces as they have articles of clothing. Everybody lies, and that is the truth, regardless of their motives. Taking it a few dozen steps further, people in Hollyweird also tend to have a few different faces to put on.

Paris has said on her show how it is sometimes hard to tell who is fake and who is real, but I respectfully disagree with her on that. Most celebrities have a glib, superficial charm about them, and many might contend that they have multiple personality disorder, given how “two-faced” so many of them are. It’s not a huge stretch when you consider such powerful people who have such little accountability, inhibitions, restrictions and lack of discipline. Ass-kissers in positions of power who might seek their approval only exacerbate the situation, too.

If I was to take a page out of Paris’s book, one might look at that number and say that she was just saying that crap to stir the pot and keep her own name circulated whether she is D-List or Z-List.

Mind you, I would not mind being able to hear their conversation at the time. I think that Paris knows the deal, I think she has “been there – done it”, and also realizes that is just the way of Hollywood types.

Yeah- I couldn’t figure out that one either. Maybe just a good photo op.

The other person in the picture doesn’t look friendly there.

Paris herself is not a hateful person (in that sense she’d be a “tourist”) and doesn’t seem to hold a grudge. She supported that Obama for instance after he proudly boasted about how his daughters have been brought up to hate her to the point of not staying at Hilton hotels. Maybe she figures if she’s nice to these people, they’ll see her for the good person she really is. Either that or she’s just been charitable to the wretched.

We should be happy I think. Kathy has hopefully stopped being a hater & that’s very good news IMO. Hopefully Kathy realizes she was wrong about Paris.

Kathy was friends with Anna Nicole Smith too, another iconic & misunderstood blonde bombshell, so I could never get why she would hate Paris anyway.

Judging by Kathy’s outfit, she just probably asked Paris to film something for a show, making fun of socialites or something…

Most likely, Paris takes the nonsense people say about her in stride and not too seriously.

Over at gossipgirls.com they have more pics of Kathy and Paris, and it looks like they’re having a blast goofing off.

Like Paris said before, it’s all just entertainment. LOL.

Well, Ellen DeGeneres also used to be a hater and she seems to like Paris now.

I can’t stand Kathy Griffin. I don’t believe for one second she likes Paris or has changed her mind on her. She’s probably making fun of her behind her back. She’s so two-faced and thinks she’s so funny when she’s definitely not. I COMPLETELY dislike Paris being around her. Sorry to say but this is one thing I completely disagree with Paris doing (I just have NEVER liked Kathy in ALL my life or anything)…

keep your friends close, but your enemies closer…

most people like paris once they get to know her. and then, even if the person were a hater, like kathy, it may be just a little bit harder for kathy – or anybody – to make fun of paris in such a caustic or venemous manner even if she still tells jokes about paris.

that could be paris’ strategy. i’ve seen perez hilton check himself a bit more now wrt what he says about paris.

I can’t stand Perez because of the way he has treated Paris. He’s a five-faced viper, who appropriately celebrated his birthday at the Viper Room. I am sorry to snakes everywhere, he gives you all a bad name. If there is one celebrity I would love to lay a vicious beat-down on, it’s that gay, Pillsbury Doughboy wannabe, woman-wannabe, Paris-Hilton-wannabe. Look at his waistline, he could be 5 of her, but he could not hold a candle to her.
