Just a typical day in the life of Paris Hilton! At a performance in Miami this weekend, a rowdy crowd shoved performer Robin Sherwood (dressed as one of Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompas) so hard that he sliced his leg open on a metal part of the stage support. But never fear! It’s a bird! It’s a skanky heiress! It’s…Paris Hilton? Yes, the waste of space in a fancy dress “rescued” the fallen little man like the hero that she is! A witness revealed, “Paris screamed for help and jumped up to move everyone away from him. She held Robin’s hand and said the sweetest things to keep him calm. She stayed with him until he was safely in the ambulance on his way to the hospital.”
Sherwood ended up getting 50 stitches and is recovering – thank goodness he’ll be okay and credit has been given where credit is due. Paris deserves some sort of award for her life-saving skills and selfless behavior. Then she can resume her mission of rescuing imaginary elf-like creatures across the globe! [NYDN. Image: Getty]

Punk Bumped Posted by 9:57 PM EST
Despite the fact that New York could find no bad qualities in Punk, she still kicked him off the show. Was she right in doing so? And will the uncontrollable force that’s drawing her to Buddha backfire?
Oh man. Janice is asking to get her ass kicked, and I know the woman who’s gonna do it! While talking with Al Roker on The Today Show this morning, Janice Dickinson discussed her modeling show as well as the recent controversy over pictures of Jennifer Love Hewitt that were labeled as fat by the media. The self-proclaimed “first supermodel” said that Jen Love “is a healthy, not emaciated woman,” and then blabbed, “You want to see someone who’s fat? I’m sorry, Tyra. Tyra Banks is fat.”
Oh snap! She says she’s sorry now, but she’s gonna really be sorry when “fat” Tyra whoops her ass! In case you forget how Tyra throws down, click on the video clip above. We know Janice is all fierce and shizz, but she’s nothing against Tyra. And really, she’d be nothing these days without Tyra. Maybe Janice should put her ego on a diet. [Huffington Post]
Were you stoked for yesterday’s episode of The Shot? In the last installment, the contestants were asked to capture alternative beauty among breakdancers, and then to show the purity and pulchritudinous aspects of skin–with the help of Dave Navarro. Weird. And therein lies the core of the show, which pits 10 up-and-coming fashion photographers against each other for the chance to win $100,000, a spread in Marie Claire, and a Victoria’s Secret campaign–all the while being judged by a he-Tyra with an Australian accent, Russell James. Catch up on what you missed. Check the recap below.
It looks like Paris DID learn something in prison – how to kick the sh*t out of another woman! The heiress apparently freaked when she discovered her on-again off-again flame, Greek shipping heir hottie Stavros Niarchos, macking on another girl in Miami last week. After noticing her man ignoring her for another woman, Paris went up to them and screamed at the unlucky lady (who happens to be her BFF Brandon Davis’ ex-girlfriend). The next night she attempted the same tactic to get Stav’s attention, but added some sexy dancing to spice up her wooing. Are we talking about humans here, or peacocks? She then followed him to another club, where she went nuts trying to get his date kicked out, and a source says she even begged security to give her the boot. Another spy claimed, “Paris was so furious, she ended up walking up to the girl and just punched her.”
The tumultuous night ended in a kiss, a classy capper to a typical instance of Hilton insanity. Perhaps they can leave Miami and take their love onto a yacht, sailing far far away from the cameras, internet, and our sensitive eyes.
Some gossip stories are too big to forget. We’re counting down the 20 biggest, baddest, most ridiculous and saddest celeb scandals of the year. You’ll get a new one posted every day.
Don Imus is famous (and super rich) for the crap that comes out of his mouth, so it was only fitting that his words would also cause his demise. Back in April, Imus triggered a societal meltdown when he referred to the Rutgers University Women’s Basketball team as “some nappy-headed hos” during his morning show on CBS Radio. Outrage over his comments spawned a national dialogue about race, racism and language, and Imus was swiftly fired from both his radio and television shows. The scorned host later met with the players he verbally degraded and apologized for his words. In the weeks that followed the players went on Oprah, Oprah talked to some hip-hop bigwigs about the issues of racism and language, Al Sharpton spoke out, and activists pushed to ban hurtful words. Yet in the end, Don Imus ended up back where he started: back on the radio.
Michael Vick, the former star quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, has been sentenced to 23 months in jail for his participation in a dogfighting ring run out of a home he owned. Dressed in a black and white prison suit, Vick apologized to his family and friends and said, “I am willing to deal with the consequences and accept responsibility for my actions.” The judge in the case, U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson, seemed unaffected by Vick’s professed remorse, and responded curtly to his comments. “You need to apologize also to the millions of young people who look up to you,” he snapped. He later said of Vick’s involvement, “”I’m convinced it was not a momentary lack of judgment on your part. You were a full partner.”
Vick, who was once one of the best played players in the game, began serving his sentence early in November. He still faces another trial for more dogfighting charges brought forth on behalf of the state of Virginia. [CNN]
