Paris Hilton outside Bar DeLuxe in Hollywood (2/19)

The recession has hit the socialites. Paris Hilton has had to dramatically reduce her appearance fees. OH THE HUMANITY! From the New York Post:
"New York Fashion Week isn't what it used to be," one industry insider moaned.

Where superstars Renée Zellweger and Jennifer Lopez once parked, now plop former hooker to the elite Ashley Dupre, sex-tape celeb Kim Kardashian, and "90210" graduate Tori Spelling.

They come cheap.

But this year's pretty young things attend for a few thousand bucks' worth of free clothes, grab gift bags missing high-end goodies and settle for McDonald's instead of Starbucks or champagne.

Paris Hilton - ubiquitous this week with sister Nicky and Kardashian in tow - used to charge $50,000 to appear at just one show, another veteran celebrity wrangler said. Now she is showing up at shows this year for free airfare, hotel accommodations and $5,000 in free clothes per designer, sources said. (Source)
I have two options here: I can feel bad for Paris or I can stab myself in the eye with a fork. Guess which one I'm choosing.

UPDATE: *stab stab stab*

    Turning tricks don't pay what it used to.

  • Fasc(ion)ist(a)

    How will she afford not to eat?

  • Jeezlouise

    Absolutely the worst look of all time- She should pay them to redress her- horrible- Ive always said she looks like the birdlady on Kids In The Hall. She looks like she is going to a costume party. And the lips- My god The lips! Horrible! She needs to find a real friend and stay home. The looks are getting comical.

  • PinocchioHilton

    Hahahhaaa...very ugly! Uglier than usual, actually... her lips look disgusting, the wonky eye and the pinocchio nose don't help either.

  • Exterminator

    Possibly the worst human being of all time... (With certain exceptions)

    She looks like she had a stroke and it's her first time back in heels without the spider canes.
