An odd bit of news made me do a double-take this morning. USAToday published an article talking about how it’s Ms. Hilton’s brithday and how cool it is that she’s a vegetarian. Wha? The author quoted the site, Paris Hilton Zone that details how the socialite went veggie in 2006 — apparently after a meeting with vegan-powerhouse Heather Mills. From the website,
“Paris Hilton hasn’t eaten meat since meeting Heather Mills McCartney. The blonde star says she converted to vegetarianism after the former model, the estranged wife of Sir Paul McCartney, showed her a shocking video of animal cruelty. She said: ‘From that point I’ve never worn fur and I never will. I also haven’t eaten any meat since. I just survive on pasta and stuff like that. I was grossed out. It was disgusting.'”
As far as we can tell, Paris is no longer a vegetarian. The Vegetarian Star points out that Paris was spotted eating meat and pork back in November 2008 with then-boyfriend Benji Madden. Deceiver says she’s had some issues sticking to that whole “anti-fur” commitment as well.
Hopefully we’re wrong and Hilton is a raging vegetarian. I’d just like to clear the air on this topic before another rumors is given fresh life a la “Clint Eastwood is a vegan” fame.
Anyways, Happy Birthday Paris!
