Kathy Hilton, the famous mother of Nicky and Paris, is taking off those freshly pressed, socialite gloves and getting her hands a little dirty for the sake of the children. Mrs. Hilton (not to be confused with Mrs. Clause) is showing her charitable side this year, not by personal sacrifice, but through the sacrifice of her wealthy friends.

That’s right, Hilton spend “all last week calling different celebrities and sports figures” asking them to donate some of their personal possessions to an ebay auction she’s hosting for the Make A Wish Foundation.

What exactly can you bid on? Mel Gibson’s jeans, Johnny Carson’s cuff links, Dean Martin’s golf clubs, Lucille Ball’s teacup and saucer, an Ocean Thirteen script signed by the film’s cast, and Tom Cruise’s autographed Ray-Ban sunglasses are just a few of the fancy treats.

But wait a second? Kathy Hilton said that she spent all last week calling her celebrity friends, and now she has stuff from Dean Martin, Johnny Carson and Lucille Ball? Oh my God, the Hilton family has a phone that can contact dead people!!! Now THAT’S cool.

Okay, so maybe she’s not really making any personal sacrifice here, but at least she’s setting up the online auction right? Nevermind. Kathy Hilton recently confessed, ” I don’t know how to use the computer.” Well, it’s the thought that counts anyway I guess, but all I’m saying is just think how much she could get for that dead people phone. Think about it Mrs. Hilton, think about it.
