by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 21st 2011 10:15AM
'The World According to Paris'Paris Hilton has certain standards for celebrating her birthday. "It's not a birthday unless I celebrate it in at least two time zones," she explained on 'The World According to Paris' (Wed., 10PM ET on Oxygen).

We're sure most Americans feel that way, which is why most Americans will have to simply stop celebrating their birthdays.

But Hilton has no problems having a lavish party in New York in anticipation of the "big party in LA" in a couple days time. Until then, she had to settle for the likes of Adrian Grenier, Lil' Wayne and Kathy Griffin to keep her satisfied.

Paris Hilton before walking out of an interview on 'Good Morning America'Paris Hilton walked out of an interview with Dan Harris that aired Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), amid questions about her fading star and the low ratings for her new show, 'The World According to Paris.'

Harris asked Hilton if she was worried about low ratings for the show. She replied, flatly, "no." Harris then asked if Hilton ever worries that her moment may have passed, which flustered the heiress. As Hilton looked off-camera to her publicist, Harris said, "You wanna wrap up?" and Hilton walked off. At the end of the hub-bub, we hear Hilton saying, "I don't want all of this being used." She apparently did not get her wish.

Their assignment was to see if Paris's personal assistant Lexi Dreyfus was back working for a porn company.

Luckily, the front desk was very accommodating when Hilton sent in one of her agents to record what was in the building they'd tracked Dreyfus to. While this operation was underway, Hilton was asked what she would do if Dreyfus was still involved in pornography.

"I'm gonna have to get rid of her," she said. "I can't have someone working for something like that and working for me. It's gross."

So she was a little upset when she found out her friend Brooke Mueller was still friends with Salomon on 'The World According to Paris' (Wed., 10PM ET on Oxygen).

Hilton said she equated some of her current insecurities to that leak, at which point Mueller was a little taken aback.

"I totally thought you were involved," she said, after admitting her ongoing friendship with Salomon. Mueller was not only under the impression Hilton was involved in the leak, but thought she'd raked in half the earnings as well.

Paris Hilton Talks With Craig Ferguson About the Dangers of Massages (VIDEO)

Paris Hilton and Craig FergusonCraig Ferguson either has some crazy ideas about massages, or else he's trying to push Paris Hilton into doing bizarre things. On 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), he asked her if she was ever worried her massage therapist was going to run to TMZ with sordid details about her body.

"I only have one person I've used for years. I don't use random people," she said.

"You should," he replied. He then laid out a scenario where she was far away from home and needed a massage. What would she do then? We're pretty sure no one would do what he considered.

Would you ever knock on the next door and say, "Hi, I'm Paris Hilton. Sorry to bother you. Could you give me a massage?'" he asked.

Paris Hilton does 'Top 10' List on 'David Letterman' You've gotta hand it to Paris Hilton. Everyone makes fun of her and her penchant for getting publicity out of doing nothing, but we like her just a teensy bit more for making fun of herself.

Best TV of the '00s: Reality Participant / Contestant

by Annie Wu, posted Dec 29th 2009 7:02PM
the osbourne familyMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started earlier today. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about our favorite reality contestants and participants.

Whether we like it or not, the '00s introduced us to a new form of celebrity: the reality star. In previous decades, the closest we got to this were especially entrancing personalities from MTV's Real World. These people gained fame for acting like well-crafted exaggerations of their real selves.

Faster than you can say, "I didn't come here to make friends," networks picked up on the public's fascination with reality TV like Survivor and they pushed it to the popularity that it has reached today. Now, reality shows barely reflect what happens in normal people's lives but are generally more like high-concept game shows or extremely scripted improvs. But people keep watching, because the personalities are big and captivating.

Yup. Strategic footage editing does wonders. Here are some of our personal favorites from the genre, but feel free to comment with your own worthy additions!

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Seven shows a-thrivin'

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 17th 2009 11:03AM
john lithgowOn the seventh day of Festivus, TV gave to me... Seven shows a-thrivin'.

The 2009-2010 season is a great one to be on TV-- especially for returning dramas and new comedies. If we had 20 days of Christmas, I probably could have filled the list with shows that were either thriving right out of the gate or making a resurgence after being on the air for several years. As it is, we just have seven slots, so here are some noteworthy series that are thriving this year.

I've always liked Dexter, but it's never been appointment TV for me. I've generally been content to wait until the season came out on DVD and knock all of the episodes out in a weekend. However, after a creative dip in season 3, I've found myself positively glued to my television every Sunday night that season 4 has aired. John Lithgow absolutely made the season as the creepy Arthur Mitchell. Plus the finale? I know some of you saw the big twist coming at the end, but I certainly did not. Who doesn't like to end a season with their jaw on the floor?

Why is ABC giving Nicole Richie a situation comedy?

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 1st 2009 3:01PM
nicole_richie_necklaceIf you don't count Hank -- and I'm trying to erase the two episodes I saw from my memory banks -- ABC has had a pretty good year launching new comedies. In fact, if you go back to the spring, you can add Better Off Ted to Cougar Town, The Middle and Modern Family.

Why then would ABC be giving Nicole Richie a new sitcom? I just don't see where she's worthy of a show, let alone that she has the star appeal or talent to carry a situation comedy.

Perhaps ABC has some take on The Simple Life star that I'm missing. She's cute, yes. She's not a complete airhead judging by what I've seen of her on talk shows. But, really, aren't there better actresses -- stars -- who are more viable for a new comedy series? Stars will more talent than celebrity to their credit.
