Paris Hilton’s rep is hitting back at Shanna Moakler, calling her actions “childish” and “mean-spirited” after the former Dancing with the Stars contestant posted contact information for Hilton online over the weekend.

“This woman is simply desperate for press and attention,” Hilton’s rep, Elliot Mintz, tells PEOPLE. “Shanna deliberately posted Paris’s phone number and e-mail address on her Web site. It was an unprovoked invasion upon Paris’s privacy, which immediately caused her to change her contact information. It was a childish, mean-spirited thing to do. And we are not going to dignify such an action with any additional comment.”

The drama started over the weekend, when Moakler wrote a blog post (titled, “Put This In Your Pipe and Smoke It”) on her MySpace page:

“I posted this blog back in January to let you all know that my accounts were hacked. … and since there are 2 little girls with to much time on their hands and no one to love them….id like to share my ‘hacked’ info as well. ive tried to disassociate myself from both these parties for some time now and like a fungus they wont go away.”

The posting then listed what she claimed were the e-mail address and phone number for Hilton and e-mail addresses for Lindsay Lohan.

A rep for Lohan denied that the actress’s information was correct, saying, “She and Shanna are not friends.” Both Lohan and Hilton’s camps also denied Moakler’s “hacking” claims.

By Sunday, the post had been pulled from Moakler’s page, however she put up another missive saying, “There are numerous reasons why i posted my last blog and I stand behind every single one of them.”

Calls to Moakler’s rep were not immediately returned.
