Paris and Nicky Hilton at the “Bongo Virus New Year’s Eve 2009 Party” in Sydney, Australia (12/31)
Despite the clusterfuck that is the current global economy, Paris and Nicky Hilton each netted $750k to host a New Year’s Eve party in Australia . . . which buys a lot of nose candy if you catch my drift . . . not that the Hilton sisters are into that sort of thing . . . nope, not at all. From the New York Post:
A well-placed Aussie spy said they were paid by Bongo jeans and the two toured Melbourne before flying off to Sydney with close, greasy pal Brandon Davis and Nicky’s boyfriend, David Katzenberg. In Sydney, the Hiltons’ local pal Mehmet Gulasi was pulled over early New Year’s Day with cocaine in his car. A local paper reported Gulasi told cops he was “on an important errand” and on his way to pick up the Hiltons and their posse. (Source)
Paying Paris Hilton to promote clothing is like paying K-Fed to promote condoms. Neither one wears them. Besides, I could have saved Bongo that $750K easily. If you really want to get Paris into a pair of jeans, there’s only one way to do it — put them on some random dude. As far as being a spokesperson for a clothing line, there is a company I think Paris might be a better fit for: The Gap.
