Paris Hilton celebrated her own death at a recent cocktail party at hot L.A. store Kitson. Huh? The hotel heiress-turned-actress was partying to mark the release of the store’s exclusive t-shirt collection by People’s Liberation featuring the catchphrase “See Paris Die,” referring to Hilton’s death scene in her upcoming movie House of Wax (opening May 6). “When they asked me at first, I was a little bit weirded out,” she told us. “But, you know, I do have the best death scene in the movie. Probably one of the coolest death scenes I’ve ever seen.”
Surreal Love, Indeed
Though finding love on a reality show isn’t exactly common (Trista and Ryan aside), it can happen. Just ask former America’s Next Top Model Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight of Brady Bunch fame, who met and fell in love while living The Surreal Life on VH1’s celebrity roommate series. We recently caught up with the couple at the Napster To Go Cafe party at Mel’s Diner on Sunset in West Hollywood, where they gave us the scoop on their five-month-old relationship. “She is an example of raw honesty. She really doesn t know how to couch anything,” says Knight of Curry, who hotly pursued him throughout the show. “And I m all about couching. So it’s really refreshing.” Curry’s response? “You’re making me blush. Love is a very powerful potion.”
