Cameron Diaz and A-Rod enjoy France

Cameron Diaz and her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, have been spotted enjoying Paris as a loving couple.  The two are shacked up in a swanky hotel room, and have been seen having romantic dinners, shopping at Chanel, and visiting museums.

They appear to be having a wonderful time and are taking in everything the city has to offer.  That’s sweet and everything, and I wish them all the best, but I have to admit I don’t get Cameron’s taste in men.  She seems to have a fetish for pop star leftovers – first Britney’s ex, and now Madonna’s.  If Cameran ever starts dating Jordan Bratman, I think we may need to stage an intervention.

Someone forgot to tell Kim Kardashian there’s a recession

A couple of days ago in a place called Paris, France, Kim Kardashian and her mother spent more money in an hour than you make in several years.  The pair visited the Hermes shop and purchased six handbags priced $10,000 each, one priced at $30,000, and various other bits and pieces that took their grand total well over $100,000 for the afternoon.  Notice I said “priced at” and not “worth” – because people, we are talking about handbags.

A pouch to hold your keys and your lipstick and your taser.  It doesn’t sing or dance or do tricks, it doesn’t clean your house… it just sits there on the table, being expensive.  I’m told the $30,000 bag was priced so steeply because of its rarity, but right here next to me I have a one-of-a-kind handbag that I made myself, and so far the eBay bidding is holding steady at 20 cents.  I don’t get it.

Shocking news! Celebs get special treatment in jail!

So this admission is probably not a shocking revelation to anyone, but the fact that a government-run detention center is actually admitting to treating Paris Hilton differently from the rest of the inmates is kind of surprising. When Paris was booked into a Las Vegas jail for possession of cocaine, she was rushed through the whole process so she could get in and out more quickly.

According to the jail, Hilton’s three-hour stay at the Center was anywhere from five to 21 hours shorter than that of someone else booked for the same offense. In jail time, that’s like an eternity!

The police officer who runs the Center says it was all on the up-and-up though:  “When you bring somebody in like that, everybody comes over and tries to look at them. I’d have officers attempting to keep inmates away from her. I’d have disruptions.”
