Paris Hilton and Benji Madden strolled through LHR Tuesday en route to the Good Charlotte tour in South Africa. With all this traveling we are sure the couple didn't have much time to stop and ogle London's new terminal, but if they did we have a bit of advice for them.
Don't spend too much timing sitting in T5, as the chairs look a bit uncomfortable for long layovers. Instead, spend your time eating and shopping at the terminals many brand spankin' new eateries and shopperies.

The airline set up shop at the Village at the Yard, which is basically a star-friendly gifting lounge. While we were there, Jessica Alba, Method Man, Perez Hilton and Mischa Barton ex Cisco Adler all dropped by to look through the swag.
And while we had other things happening later that night, VA's Charles Ogilvie kept working the party circuit. Turns out Paris Hilton loves WiFi and wants to try out Virgin's new in-flight system when it debuts. She must not have heard that you can IM from one of JetBlue's planes!
No you didn't, Paris Hilton. Didn't your mama ever warn you not to go out in public wearing a sweatshirt emblazoned with your name? A stranger could use the information to trick you! Ah well, we suspect that our favorite heiress and former jailbird has probably ignored a lot of sensible advice--fashion and otherwise--from Kathy Hilton over the years.
Paris was snapped departing LAX on Tuesday carrying significantly less luggage than she was during her trip to France in December--but she did have at least as many logos and patterns splashed across her body. Does Louis Vuitton really jive with a loud giraffe print hoodie? Does anything?
We're not sure what it is about air travel that makes even image-conscious celebs like Hilton lose their fashion sensibilities (and their minds, if rumors about Paula Abdul's LAX meltdown can be believed), but in a way we're kind of relieved. If Paris can sport her ghetto-meets-Gymboree fashion disaster in the first-class cabin, surely we can get away with gray sweatpants in coach?

Good God. And we thought our friends overpacked. Paris Hilton doesn't fool around, it seems, when she's in her namesake city. TMZ counted 15 bags curbside at Paris Charles de Gaulle International, which is, give or take, 14 more than we usually carry.
Paris herself was dressed way down for the flight. (Maybe channeling JT?) But we give her credit for keeping up on the writers' strike with a copy of Variety in her carryon. Is she as nervous as we are that new episodes of Gossip Girl could be but a dream?

Nah, we're kidding. Hilton made her first appearance at the opening party in South Beach on Wednesday night, where she caused a scene over Greek ex-boyfriend and party host Stavros Niarchos, even reportedly punching his date! (Paris and Stavros met up in Miami last year under better terms; she had been dating a Swedish model, while he has been linked to Mary-Kate Olsen.) What is the allure of the man Go Fug Yourself refers to as "Stabby Nachos"? Well, his $275 million inheritance from his family's shipping company, perhaps.
If you want to join in the sob fest over the love of shipping heirs lost, HotelChatter has all the info you need about catching the tail end of Art Basel.

Did you let your small cousin pull the wishbone this Thanksgiving, or help Dad set the table? Some stars also gave in to that altruistic holiday impulse over the weekend. While Britney Spears went shopping, "Hairspray" star Nikki Blonsky performed at New York's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade; while Paris Hilton went on an MTV junket to China, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa headed up a crack team of stars willing to give up their Thanksgiving to serve the homeless.
While Kirk Douglas reminisced about Olde Hollywood with the mayor, Harrison Ford and wife Calista Flockhart put their rubber gloves on, and Spencer Pratt of "The Hills" dished up some succotash. Man, these stars are cooler than that one weird couple who always shows up at our Thanksgiving dinners!

Hope you bought travel insurance, Paris. The Hilton heiress won't be off to Rwanda as planned because the organization that sponsored the junket is "restructuring". We're not sure what that means, but for now Paris won't be flying to Central Africa.
Instead of fretting about her trip plans, Paris indulged in a little Yogen Fruz in Toronto. It's sort of Canada's answer to Pinkberry, and though there are locations in 20 countries, they don't have any stores in Rwanda. (We checked.) If you're ready to jump on the bandwagon, Paris enjoyed a raspberry mango no-fat with fruity pebbles on top.
George Clooney went to the Sudan. Angelina Jolie went to Cambodia. Now Paris Hilton is set to become the umpteenth celebrity to make a humanitarian trip--and, predictably, hers will be filmed. Paris is traveling to clinics and schools in Rwanda with Playing for Good, an organization that holds fundraising summits to benefit children's charities.
Don't get us wrong, it's great when people who are famous (for whatever reason) use that to draw attention to conflicts that might otherwise go under the radar. Still, this smells like "unhelpful publicity stunt" to us. Simple Life: Central Africa? We're not sold on it.

The biggest news of the weekend/year/century (depending on just how addicted you are to celebrity gossip) was that Paris Hilton is headed to the slammer. Paris was sentenced to 45 days at a women's facility in Lynwood, CA, but the exact amount of time she'll end up serving remains to be seen, as area jails are severely overcrowded.
You'd think it's the ultimate in schadenfreude, but Paris' sentence will probably bring her more publicity, photo ops, and ultimately, money, than anything else. One of the worst parts of this whole thing is that the jail cells at Century Regional Detention Facility remind us a bit of hostel rooms from our past. If Ms. Hilton is truly enterprising, she will pick up where sis Nicky crashed and burned, take on Tony Fernandes in the hot budget hotel market, and work on a chain of no-frills hotels inspired by her time served.

Think your teenage daughter's going a little wild? Scare her BUT GOOD with a trip to an art gallery -- specifically, the Capla Kesting gallery. The gallery is currently showing a life-size statue of Paris Hilton on an autopsy table to demonstrate the dangers of underage drinking and driving under the influence, according to TMZ. Your kid can even win a prize for writing Ms. Hilton's obituary!
While Live Paris is expected to face a judge in LA this week to answer to parole violations related to last year's DUI, Clay Paris has passed and had her internal organs spread out to demonstrate the havoc her lifestyle of Belvedere in Vegas, Oktoberfest in Munich and getting banned from the Rose Bar in New York has wreaked on her health.
Creator Daniel Edwards (previously responsible for works depicting a topless Hillary Rodham Clinton and Britney Spears giving birth) even included Tinkerbell and -- spoiler alert! -- dead twin fetuses. That's right, in Edwards' future the world will apparently be saved from the horrors of Paris' twin daughters, Heiress and Upskirt.

Vienna's famous as one of the opera capitals of the world, right? Recently it seems like nobody likes it. After Paris Hilton fiddled with her cell phone and yawned her way through the recent Vienna Opera Ball, opera's about to get another bashing when it's used at the Karlsplatz subway station to get rid of junkies and drunks.
After numerous attempts by police to crack down on loiterers in the underground area, the local council has one last idea:
We will be playing classical music, and broadcasting opera on specially installed TV screens. These sort of people are not known for their love of opera and classical music, and we believe they will not hang around. Those that do might find that civilised music encourages civilized behaviour.
It didn't work for Paris, but maybe it'll be easier to get civilized behavior out of Viennese junkies.

While serious Hollywood actors and actresses were getting their beauty sleep the night before the Oscars, Paris Hilton was throwing herself another birthday party at the Prime Grill on Rodeo Drive. This new Western outpost of the Manhattan steak house has already set the table for stars like Carmen Electra and Colin Farrell, says the New York Post, but that's nothing compared to the Saturday soiree, where Hilton pal Brandon Davis, the oil heir (and famous Lindsay Lohan basher), showed up to pick on Paula Abdul and proposition Courtney Love in front of daughter Frances Bean. Apparently Paris forgave him, though; he was allowed into her house later that night where the party continued.
We're pretty sure Paris didn't pick the Prime Grill in accordance with Talmudic law, but is the food any good? After all, its owner told the Jewish Journal, "We don't want people to think of us as a kosher restaurant that happens to be superb. We want them to think of us as a superb restaurant that happens to be kosher." The L.A. Times describes it as a place that doesn't take many risks with its offerings, but which has superb steaks -- "that and the joyous spirit of the place." That must have been what attracted Ms. Hilton & Co. But a Calendarlive.com review describes a 90-minute post-Shabbat wait and an oblivious hostess. Let the diner beware!
