Where's the Jacqui Smith angle?
I for one welcome our new blond airhead overlords.
Paris Hilton has pulled off a bit of a blinder at the London launch of her ITV2 show Paris Hilton's British Best Friend by fingering Gordon Ramsay as Prime Minister, the Telegraph reports. The talented amateur grumble vid performer responded to a request to name the PM with a confident: "I had lunch at his restaurant yesterday …
Some months ago, I found a superb story in the Dutch Telegraaf newspaper (http://tinyurl.com/5vra7n)
As it's in Dutch, here's my translation:
* Paris Hilton jeered off *
"Amsterdam - Paris Hilton was booked for the birthday party of a spoiled teenager, because Britney Spears cancelled. The guests were not enthusiastic...
When the party pig (the daughter of designer Christian Audigier) stood on the stage she cried "Do you want to see Paris Hilton?" The answer she got was not quite what she expected... Loud booing and jeering was the result. Paris left the podium in tears."
How could she possibly get it that wrong? Gordon Ramsay is a clueless gobshite who makes you want to put your boot through the telly whenever he appears on it, whereas Gordon Brown..........hang on a tic.......now *I'm* confused......
Ah, got it! The one that's Prime Minister has never been awarded any Michelin stars as he only eats pies rather than cooking them.
Is TV really this desperate to fill airtime nowdays? May I suggest they would get better ratings by placing me with 11 cute girls (we'll skip the other chap) and I will give them various "tests" to perform too.
Oh, I suspect this, er, story will pop up again on Friday. It will be interesting to see where the Somali pirates come into it
When I read the first bit of the story I was quite impressed that she correctly referred to him (even if it was the wrong him) as the Prime Minister and not the President - more than most Americans would probably have managed. Ofcourse it had to be too good to be true, she was merely responding to the question 'can you name the prime minister?'.
But there was an article t'other day that led to much wailing and gnashing of teeth about the US swiping Brit shows... In retaliation, it seems you have swiped the PH BFF show from us?
LOLOLOLOL OMGWTFBBQ!!!111!! that's the best you could do?!?!
Sorry - couldn't help myself. I know the Reg lot would have absolutely nothing to do with this choice (well, aside from those that are willing to watch PH for the (alleged) eye candy factor ;) It's a toss-up today between the heart and flame icon... hmmm...
In fact, I'm growing more and more sure that the opposite is true and that she is an extremely intelligent and artuiculate woman.
Let's face it, would she have half the fame or be making anywhere near as much money now if she hadn't leaked her sex tapes or didn;t keep playing up to the airhead blonde stereotype? Very canny, methinks.
She's a bit like GW Bush (also not nearly as stupid as he appears) in that she uses other people's perceptions of her to great effect. Lots of women take advantage of the fact that people think they're stupid. She's made a whole career out of it, and yeah, I think she's a fairly brilliant businesswoman. And she makes it look like she does absolutely nothing too.
I can't say 'no one is really that stupid', though, because many, many people really are that stupid. They just generally don't make any money at it unless they're exceptionally beautiful and have a great team of people doing everything for them, and then they don't last this long. How long ago was that sex tape? Long long ago. About three decades in celeb-years.
GW Bush (also not nearly as stupid as he appears)
I am sorry but having lived through his mess - I think that he is dumber then he looks.
Paris might be smarter.... I have seen some of the funny things she has done - and there appears to be a deep sense of humor in her.
Paris - cause I am still male
