We’ll Believe It When We See It

When socialite Paris Hilton arrived in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to film the Middle Eastern version of her reality TV series, “Paris Hilton's My New BFF,” she quickly made a splash on the nightclub scene. First, Dubai club BED promoted and sold tickets to a party by claiming Hilton would attend, prompting a response from the hotel heiress that she “will be doing appearances during my stay here, but they are booked through my agents. So don't believe these people, I am not going to this club and never approved this appearance.” She then announced that she had fallen so in love with Dubai that she will spend some of her two weeks there scouting locations for a new hotel and/or nightclub project. Considering we’ve heard her boast about nightclub plans and projects in places ranging from Las Vegas, Florida and London before, and none of them have materialized, we’ll just have to wait and see.
