Celebrity Pinatas

Yesterday, I wrote about a rich, spoiled young woman, and, naturally, many of my readers came to her aid. Okay, it seems everybody seemed to pile on, and you know, it was my fault.

I am not rich, famous or spoiled. I don't know what it is like when my friends lie to me because they think telling me the truth might end our relationship. I don't know what it means to not really care how much dresses cost. I can't plan to have my picture taken by professional photographers stalking me. It is just foreign to me.

I remember something Jesus said about right people: "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." Okay, I did not want to look up the actual Bible quote, but you get the gist. Similarly, it is probably easier for us to be decent people – those of us who are not rich and or famous.

I mean, I don't have the money to hire strippers or have friends hanging onto me and my fortune. I don't have people who want what I have.

Like others, I like making fun of people who are in the public eye. I made fun of Britney Spears – can you imagine trying to stay popular by staging "upskirt photos" or kissing Madonna? My brain does not work like that.

I am not saying that these people should not take responsibility for their actions. It just seems like most of us have less of an opportunity to do really bad things.

So today I am taking the day off from making fun of celebrities. This is going to kill me. Deep down inside of me, I sort of like beating up celebs! Bad Leesa, bad Leesa.

Nothing wrong with making fun of celebrities...ha!!!!!!

As far as the rest, just remember that other old saying - money can't buy happiness.

If I only had half the money these ladies had, I would get a driver to take me around clubbing and hitting all the fancy bars. Wouldn't you have a designated driver for your outings???????

There's nothing wrong with making fun of those that set themselves up for it. Did you hear Paris has been cut out of the will? Gramps has had enough of her shenanigans.

I heard about that Kat. Maybe that'll give her a slap of reality. Too bad more of us didn't have those options to fall back on. I can dream, right???

Paris Hilton loses inheritance

PARTY princess Paris Hilton is $60 million out of pocket after her billionaire grandfather - appalled by her jail term for drink-driving offences - axed her inheritance.

Family patriarch Barron Hilton was already embarrassed by his granddaughter’s wild behavior - notably when her home sex video was leaked on the internet.

But the 79-year-old considered her 23-day sentence last month the last straw.

“He was, and is, extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris,” says Jerry Oppenheimer, who wrote a biography of the clan called House Of Hilton.

“He now doesn’t want to leave unearned wealth to his family.”

Hilton senior, the only member of the family left with a sizeable stake in the huge hotel chain, has let it be known that he intends to donate to charity the $2.4bn he will gain from this month’s sale of the company to private equity firm Blackstone.

The money will go to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, the charity set up in the name of the founder of the family business.
