Paris Hiilton Seeks British Best Friend

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, MTV, News,

Paris HiltonI apologize, World. is going international.

Although her new reality show, , hasn’t yet debuted, the famous hotel heiress has already opted to try again. Hilton, believing her American choice won’t fit in overseas, has decided to do an entire new search in the UK.

Starting this October, Paris will start taping a British version of her fall program. While the concept will remain the same, the title will get a slight adjustment: Paris Hilton’s New Best Friend. On both programs, a group of wannabes fight for the opportunity to become a fixture on the celebutante’s side.

In a statement released today, Hilton tried her best to explain the upcoming mission:

“Everyone knows I love LA, but London, watch out—I’m coming to town and bringing my fast-paced life with me. I’m in the UK all the time, but of course I can’t bring all my friends, so I’ve decided to look for a new BFF across the pond. I need a best friend who is hot, who can keep up with me, and most of all, who is real and won’t be a backstabber. I’m not leaving London until I find that amazing girl or guy who can meet the challenges of being my British bestie!”

So she needs someone who’s hot and basically available whenever she jets into town. If this same person was paid - I still have no idea what they actually win on this show - could they also be considered an escort? Just asking.

By the way - if this experiment is successful, the producer has already threatened to take Paris’ friend hunt to other countries. (Hopefully, this will mean less face time for her in this country.)

MTV’s Paris Hilton’s My New BFF will debut on September 30. Meanwhile, ITV2’s version will air in the UK sometime next year.
