Hilton Avoids Housework

Paris Hilton store in Mecca? Hilton introduced her store on the social media site Twitter , when she wrote, “Loving my beautiful new store that just opened at Mecca Mall in Saudi Arabia!” accompanying the post with a picture. She later added: “This is the 5th store in Saudi Arabia, and store number 42 in total! So proud to keep growing my brand!” It is not the store itself that is out of place in Mecca — the presence of Western luxury brands is nothing new in Saudi Arabia. Hilton’s store sells luxury handbags and accessories and is in the new Makkah Mall, which opened in 2011 with 255 shops, many of them global chains, selling everything from jewelery to electronics, women’s fashion to sportswear. It even has a branch of the lingerie chain La Senza. Paris Hilton has 42 stores worldwide selling handbags, accessories, shoes, fragrances, watches and T-shirts, and already has four in Saudi Arabia.

Paris Hilton However, the combination of Hilton’s personal image with the holiest city in the Muslim world has riled some in the conservative kingdom. Sheikh Adnan Baharith, a conservative cleric who preaches in Mecca, said: ”It is unnecessary to have her shop here because we do not need it. ”If it was in our hands we would have closed all of her shops in Saudi.” For others, the outrage was more about the ongoing commercialization of the heritage of Mecca than Hilton herself. Ahmed Al Omran, who writes the blogs Saudi Jeans and Riyadh Bureau , said: “Some people were angry about it and others saw the humor in it. “In the end, it’s made a lot of people think about the bigger issue of the commercialization of Mecca where historic sites have been demolished to make way for modern malls and international brands. “There’s no particular reason to be outraged about Paris Hilton when we already have Gucci and Christian Dior.

Paris Hilton takes swipe at reality TV rival Kim Kardashian

“The bins? You mean take out my own trash? [Thinks.] Well, I guess Christmas time… when they get stacked up, I take stuff out if it stinks. Actually, I’m lying a little – I never take out the trash.” The star also doesn’t wash her own clothes and avoids large food shops, insisting she travels so much it’s not economical to stock up her cupboards. Paris, 32, is currently dating Spanish model River Viiperi, who is a decade younger than her. Her mother Kathy is delighted she is finally settling down and the star has no problem with being with a younger man. “We act the same age anyway, and I’ve dated older guys. But, to be honest, River’s a perfect match. I’ve decided I’m going to be 21 forever anyway,” she said. “No [I won’t age]. I’m 21 forever. Don’t put my real age in, just put 21. I have regular facials, stay out of the sun and use the best face creams.” Paris was famously targeted by a group of American girls who craved the celebrity life and broke into a number of A-listers’ homes to steal from them.

Paris Hilton whips up a storm in holy Mecca

Paris Hilton, photographed here at a party at her private residence in Los Angeles last December, tweeted about the opening of her store in Mecca in November.

Paris Hilton claims she is too busy to watch ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, the show that catapulted her former friend Kim Kardashian to fame, and insists her own show ‘The Simple Life’ is still the best reality series. Paris Hilton has taken a swipe at Kim Kardashian’s series ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ by insisting ‘The Simple Life’ is still the best reality show. The hotel heiress claims is too busy to watch the popular E! reality series which catapulted her former friend Kim to fame and hailed her own reality series – which saw her and pal Nicole Richie work in a variety of unusual jobs – as ”iconic”. In an interview with heat magazine, she said: ”Reality TV is a lot of hard work, and Kim has done well for herself. I don’t watch reality TV now, because I don’t have time. As far as I’m concerned, ‘The Simple Life’ was the best reality TV show going, and it turned 10 years old recently. It’s timeless, iconic and you can still watch it.” Paris – who recently finished her DJ residency in Amnesia nightclub in Ibiza – claims her busy work schedule won’t allow for a reunion with Nicole on ‘The Simple Life’. She explained: ”They wanted us to do a 10-year reunion show recently, but Nicole and I were both too busy.” Meanwhile, Paris insists there is no longer a feud with her ‘Simple Life’ co-star after a fall out between the pair saw Nicole replaced by Kimberly Stewart for the show’s fourth season. The 27-year-old blonde beauty explained she is ”happy” for Nicole – who is married to Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, with whom she has two kids, five-year-old Harlow and four-year-old Sparrow – and is supportive of her current endeavours. She said: ”[Are we still friends?] Of course! We’ve been friends since we were two years old and we will always be close. I’m so happy for her with her family. She’s so cute now.”
