It seems the feud between Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, formally best friends forever, might be over.
Stop the presses, phone your mother, Hilton and Richie have gone out to eat. And it wasn’t the old In-N-Out Burger either, it was Dantannas’ Steak House in West Hollywood, California, last night.
They arrived together in Miss Hilton’s Range Rover. The TMZ.com account actually described a frenzy, “Not seen since Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan met in Geneva in 1985.” Harvey Levin, one of your writers apparently drank all the Listerine in the office. No word on what they ate, but after dinner they engaged in some side-by-side text messaging while they waited for the valet to bring in the car.
“Nicole, can we scare up some congressional pages on this thing or what?”
Anna Nicole Smith’s life continues to unfold in the Bahamas including accusations that her residency application there was fast tracked via the expediency of cold hard cash. Both photographer Larry Birkhead and lawyer Howard K. Stern have said they are the father of Ms. Smith’s one-month-old daughter. Mr. Birkhead says that Smith fled to the Bahamas to avoid his paternity claim. He didn’t say anything about whether or not she fled there to avoid him.
There are even accusations that Ms. Smith moved to the top of the list in her residency application by delivering a $10,000 check to the Bahamian immigration minister, but that minister, Shane Gibson says Ms. Smith’s residency took three months. He described that as quick, but says the same thing for a wealthy Czechoslovakian financier back in 1995, which should put all those notions of favoritism to rest.
