Paris Hilton Takes New Romance to Hawaii

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Dating,

Paris Hilton in HawaiiParis Hilton has jetted off on a romantic trip to Hawaii with her new boyfriend.

The 31-year-old socialite has flown to the sun-drenched island of Maui with Spanish model River Viiperi to escape the media storm surrounding her after she was recorded telling a friend in the back of a taxi that she thought a lot of gay men "probably have AIDS" and saying they are "disgusting" for being promiscuous.

Paris - who has since issued a lengthy apology, saying she is sorry "from the bottom" of her heart for insulting gay people - is now clearly hoping to put the incident behind her as she shared her holiday plans with her followers on Twitter. "Just landed on a magical island with @RiverViiperi. Can't wait to go surfing tomorrow!" Paris wrote when they landed.

Paris met the 21-year-old Calvin Klein model just 10 days ago at New York Fashion Week at the Marlon Gobel show in the Lincoln Center. Since then they have been spotted hanging out backstage at some of the other fashion shows and according to PerezHilton.com are constantly "snuggling" and "seeing each other as much as they can."

Grillo Concept Tricycle

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Transportation,

GrilloIf you are fortunate enough to be able to take a vacation, Grillo may be a fine way to travel if you are the camping type. The concept vehicle has luggage racks, a cool space under the seat for keeping food fresh, and an electric system for connecting your MP3 player. The trike offers more stability than two wheels and the best part is the the back of the vehicle can be folded down and used as a table or tent support. We figure this would be quite useful for someone who spends longer than they would like to be among the first to get an iPhone.

Anchors Aweigh for American Idol Contestant

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Music, Reality, FOX, American Idol, Gossip,

Danny NoriegaIt’s Tuesday, and time to look forward to another Beatles night on . But let’s not forget those who went before the Beatles story ever broke…or, at least let’s not forget one. Danny Noriega, who was surprisingly ousted just before making the Top 12, accepted the offer posed to him by . That’s right - maybe Danny’s singing the blues, but he’s doing it on a cruise. Shortly after Danny was booted from Idol, the former talk show host issued an invitation for him to join her on vacation with a guest, completely free of charge. At the time, I said he should jump at the chance. Happily, he did.

Rosie O’Donnell’s blog is alive with a video of Danny and his cousin coming aboard for fun in the sun and sea for one week with Rosie. How awesome does this trip sound? O’Donnell gushed to Noriega for a few moments, proclaiming her love, before the camera focused on others sharing the trip with them. He may not be on the Idol stage, but he’s on an awesome free trip with Rosie O’Donnell. Things could be a lot worse.

Chevy Chase Guests on Brothers & Sisters

Chevy ChaseIt’s the age old question: when did Chevy Chase become un-funny? I mean, SNL, Caddyshack, Vacation, and Fletch—Chevy ruled the comedy scene. Then it was as if his tank approached empty and he sputtered with every Caddyshack/Vacation/Fletch sequel. Not to worry, however. He has managed to show up in some recent films and even appeared on an episode of Law and Order last year (not to mention dropping in on SNL last weekend). So, his comedy chops may have fizzled, but he’s still around. Next up? A guest appearance on Brothers & Sisters, playing an ex-boyfriend of Nora’s (Sally Field). We’ll be seeing him on the series sometime in 2008 and he’ll stick around for a few episodes. I’m just hoping Chevy’s storyline is a little more interesting than last season’s guest, Peter Coyote, who played Nora’s potential love interest. And, since it’s a drama, he doesn’t even need to try and engage that dormant funny bone of his. Aww, I kid Chevy. I love Brothers & Sisters and I’m looking forward to seeing what role he’ll play.

How Ponzi and I Got (Will Get) Our Groove Back

Posted by Monica Edwards Categories: Humor, Personal,

HulaI am excitedly counting down the days till Ponzi and I get to don our grass skirts and leis; sans the coconut boob cups lest we have an unfortunate accident of some kind. We are taking a girls' mini-vacation together to Hawaii, er, rather Honolulu in mid- August. Ponzi has been crazy busy planning and preparing for Gnomedex to be held the second weekend of August, so after months of hard work, when it is all said and done, she deserves to take off for a few days and veg on the beach allowing the cabana boy to wait on her hand and foot...oh, my bad, that was How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
