Paris Hilton Lives!
In the past few days, several hoaxes have been circulating on the internet about Paris Hilton. The first claims that she was stabbed in jail. The second suggests that she committed suicide. The appearance of these hoaxes was rather predictable, given the media circus surrounding her time in jail. The method of operation of both hoaxes was to disguise themselves as credible news sites. The "Paris Hilton was stabbed" story disguised itself as a CNN webpage. The "Paris Hilton committed suicide" one disguised itself as Australia's ABC. I'll have to add these to my page about celebrity death hoaxes.

I heard about another good Paris Hilton hoax. I heard she said she was going to stop "acting silly" because, after, what, five days in jail, she has now "found God."

Oh wait, that one came from her publicist, so I guess it's "real."

Getting a wee bit hard to tell the "real" from the fake in today's America, isn't it?

I refuse to comment on Paris Hilton, but, refusing to comment is in and of itself a comment, is it not? Damn that slow-motion car wreck in Gucci, she's got me under her spell. It's the fifth sign of the Apocalypse, I swear it

I hear when Paris Hilton gets out of the stir, she's going to open a restaurant.

It's going to have great food. The only problem is that an hour after eating, you're hungry for publicity again.

Paris Hilton did not die.
People need to leave her alone!!!!!
the only reason why everyone hates her so much is because shes rich.
So what if she gets more priveleges then everyone else.
I bet you wouldnt care if you got 5 DUI's and you were only put in jail for 4 days.
Im not a fan Of paris Hilton.
Nor an enemy to Paris.
SHe has feelings, BLood, and a brain just like all of us.
Leave the girl alone!!!!
dont say she died if she didnt.

Maddi in Orlando sounds an awful lot like the kid on YouTube, regarding Brittany Spears.

Here's a new hoax for you. Brittany Spears and Lindsey "Rehab" Lohan have talent.

Paris hilton sure has a knack for being in the news and for all the wrong reasons, wait a minute, for all the right reasons accoring to paris herself. Frankly the little girl is going to realise that the world does not revolve around her and her antics and i am afraid that until she does so, she and her coterie are going to be a wee bit revloting!
