Paris Hilton slips in oil, gets her own brand of perfume, plans Australia move.

Paris Hilton slips in oil, gets her own brand of perfume, plans Australia move.
Recently: Paris Hilton signed a deal to have her own fragrance! And smashed a bottle of olive oil in a store! Then slipped in the oil! Then was so “touched” by her visit with sick children that she vowed to hold a charity concert for them! And she has a cameo in “Raising Helen”! And will present at the MTV Movie Awards! Wait: Are we even supposed to care about Paris Hilton any more? Despite the fact that The Simple Life 2 debuts in two weeks, she’s very late-2003 and early-2004, and we’re almost to mid-2004, and it’s definitely now Lindsay “whoa” Lohan’s era. This must be why Paris is planning to move to Australia; they haven’t had their fill of her yet.
