Dept. of Lies And Videotapes

Remember to turn off the camera

Another one of the brats have forgotten that every person is the other person's wolf (homo homini lupus a proverb from Plautus in ancient Rome). Paris Hilton, great-granddaughter of the founder of the Hilton Hotel is trying to get rid of the videocopies where she is having sex with her boyfriend. And as anyone else with money and something cranky to cope she hired a PR consultant: "I hear that PR consultant Dan Klores recently bagged $50,000 from the Hilton family, mainly for advising their controversial daughter Paris Hilton, 'Whenever you see a camera, cry.' " as the outspoken columnist Michael Musto of
The Village Voice

Instead of that tip I can give her one just for free: Don't use videocam to spice up your sexlife if you're a celeb (or planning to be).

Or as the New York Times columnist John Leland jokes that the only thing that could really "damage her reputation as a vapid, self-involved rich girl" would be a videotape showing her doing something worthwhile with her life, such as "developing mathematical models for a low-cost irrigation system to be used in the developing world."
