Paris Hilton arrested on cocaine charge in Vegas

LAS VEGAS - Paris Hilton was arrested on the Las Vegas Strip late Friday after police saw a cloud of what they suspected was marijuana smoke wafting from the windows of a black Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, then found a small amount of cocaine in her possession.

A crowd quickly gathered near the stop on Las Vegas Boulevard near the Wynn Las Vegas resort at about 11:30 p.m. PDT Friday, and Hilton was taken into the hotel "to keep her safe" during the initial investigation, police said.

The 29-year-old socialite and her boyfriend Cy Waits were booked into the Clark County jail, police said. Watch commander Lt. Wayne Holman said Hilton was released early Saturday morning.

Officer Marcus Martin said police found that Hilton had a substance that tests later showed to be cocaine, but he did not say how much of the drug was found. She was arrested on felony cocaine possession charges.

"I am gathering facts, but I caution people not to rush to judgment," her atto…

Scary gaffe adds to week of airline mishaps

In the middle of an otherwise-peaceful British Airways flight from London to Hong Kong on Tuesday, a terrifying announcement blasted over the speakers.

The automated message warned the 275 passengers to brace themselves, because the plane was about to crash into the sea.

"We all thought we were going to die," one passenger said.

Flight attendants quickly reassured the traumatized passengers that the message was a mistake, and British Airways say they are investigating how the incident could have happened.

This is just the latest mishap to come to light in a wild week for airlines.

On Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration proposed a record $24.2 million penalty for American Airlines, saying the company put passengers in danger by flying 14,000 flights with planes that didn't meet safety standards. In 2008, the airline canceled more than 3,000 flights to try to fix the electrical wiring on its jets. American plans to appeal the fine.

Meanwhile, in one of the more ill-con…

Jessica Simpson’s ‘Normal’ Models

Jessica Simpson is to use real women to model her fashion collection.

The curvy singer – who has faced criticism for her weight in the past – is reportedly set to turn her back on the trend of using skinny models in her New York Fashion Week show in September, and instead has decided to use real women to showcase her clothing collection.

An insider told Life and Style magazine: “Jessica Simpson plans to unveil her latest collection for the media at New York Fashion Week in September, but there’s a twist. Instead of using super-skinny models to showcase her designs, Jessica has decided to send her best friends – real women in real sizes – down the aisle.

“This is the amount of the brand’s retail grand revenue, not what Jessica takes home. She attends all business meetings and makes all major decisions. She’s a sharp businesswoman and knows what women want.”

The 30-year-old blonde admitted her television show ‘The Price of Beauty’ – which sees Jessica travel the globe to investigate some of…

Book Review

I just read the book Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson. This book was interesting to me because I wanted to start a diet and actually lose weight. I was on Weight Watchers but was having trouble sticking to the points and was gaining my weight back. This book talked about eating the right kind of carbs so you get full faster and eat less so how the book claims its easy to lose weight. But after reading the book, I realize this book is not for me. The main point of the diet in this book is to eat low carbs and cut out bread,crackers,rice,etc. That is unrealistic to me. I enjoy eating those things now and then and to completely rid them of my diet is not realistic. When I truly followed Weight Watchers about 2 years ago I managed to lose 25 ibs and it may not have happened all at once, but I slowly lost the weight. I only gained my weight back when I stopped following the plan. This time I am going to be serious and lose weight because I am going on a nice vacation soon and I want to look n…

Simon Has A Big Heart

After hearing about 12-year-old Megan Kershaw's brave battle against a rare liver cancer, Simon Cowell made her wish come true!

She has withstood 18 months of painful chemotherapy and had three-­quarters of her liver removed to beat this disease. But Megan made a “wish board” hoping to meet Simon, Girls Aloud and take a trip to Disney World in Florida.

And Simon is making it all happen including paying for her trip to the most Magical Place on Earth!

Her mother, Deborah, said:

“This is wonderful. Megan is really excited, she can’t wait, she is counting down the days. It’s lovely to seem. People have been so generous raising money and now Simon Cowell has been so generous too. I think he was touched by her story and Megan’s determination to beat cancer. It will be really emotional for me to see her finally getting to Disney World after all we have been through.”

Megan has already met Girls Aloud and the casts of Mamma Mia and Billy Elliot. Next month, she will head to Florida first clas…
