Socialite extraordinaire and frequent Las Vegas partier Paris Hilton is like no other. She just slipped up and didn’t honor a deal to promote herself as part of the film Pledge This!, according to its producers.
A Miami judge ruled that he will not throw out a breach-of-contract lawsuit brought against the filthy rich ho-tel heiress by the distributors of the 2006 drivel.
Investors claim Paris’ failure to abide by her contractual obligation to adequately plug the straight-to-DVD sorority flick resulted in a loss of $8.3 million.
Ironically, she’s now indirectly doing more to promote it – testifying how she has to Google herself daily to remember what she said or did, rather than keep records, and so on – more than marketing managers could have possibly dreamed of.
Her attorney recently claimed Hilton to be “the single busiest person on the planet,” but still the logic escaped the judge that didn’t throw out the case, telling her she must stand trial June 8.
As for her other projects less likely to result in lawsuits, she’s now soaking up the sun in Europe, with beau Doug Reinhardt, promoting the upcoming documentary Paris, Not France appearing this week at the Cannes Film Festival.
Hilton is also already hyping the forthcoming Season 2 of My New BFF that kicks off on June 2 on MTV, something that seems to hearken back to her Pledge This! days.
“It was basically Paris’ sorority house,” Hilton tells E! News. “It’s about sisterhood – there’s pledging, there’s crazy challenges. We had the best time. We started out in Las Vegas, and these kids really were up for anything.”
