Paris Hilton says thief isn’t a stranger

paris_hilton2.jpgParis Hilton says the person who stole $2 million worth of jewelry from her Los Angeles home is not a stranger. Security footage of the burglary shows a man in a hooded sweatshirt and gloves forcing his way through the front door before heading to Hilton’s bedroom to steal the jewels. She told E! News: “I think whoever did this definitely has been there before. We have some suspects that I’m thinking of.” Hilton says the stolen items included “jewelry, watches, every ring I own. All my necklaces, jewelry that my grandmothers gave me that I’ll never be able to replace. You know, it’s just an invasion of privacy and it’s happened to me before. It’s really scary but they’re doing a huge investigation on this and we’re going to catch this person.”

    You’d think by all that stolen jewelry it’d come to more than 2 mil.
    He forced his way thru the front door? What kind of security system was there? And where were the paparazzi? Don’t they have a camp-out with 24 hr surveilance? 🙂

  2. mandee • December 23, 2008 @ 2:04 PM

    i know this is sad, and a horrible thing to happen to anyone…but i cant help but wonder…why should ANYONE ever really own THAT MUCH MONEY worth the jewelry? i really HATE paris with a passion, she makes me crazy. i would say it about anyone whining when they are rich that they lost 2 million worth the jewelry. i do feel bad about the grandmothers rings though.

  3. mandee • December 23, 2008 @ 2:06 PM

    lmfao good call with the paparazzi ! yeah wonder where they were? he prolly gave them a cut of the jewels to keep their mouths shut lol

  4. Nancy • December 23, 2008 @ 2:51 PM

    Maybe it was the pap that did it! They knew she was out, knew where she was…Benji probably paid them to do it. LMAO! Keep her occupied for a few days so she will leave him alone!

  5. Kate • December 23, 2008 @ 3:11 PM

    She keeps $2 million worth of jewelry in her bedroom in such an easily accessible place?
    Poor little dumb rich girl!

    Is there anything substancial to this self-indulgent, self-promoting egoist?

    Has she ever devoted any of her time and millions to charity work?
    At least it would balance out the fact that she is a socialite media whore endorsing materialism.

  6. blah • December 23, 2008 @ 3:38 PM

    left arm look so wierd!

  7. Jo-Anne. • December 23, 2008 @ 3:48 PM

    Kate, I take it you do charity work?

    Also, sincwe when isn’t it a person’s right to purchase what they wish with their money, so 2 mil of baubbles is her thing – so what? Her money, her purchases. I’d say a little (lot) of envy apparent here.

    Personally, Paris I think, not a very interesting celebrity but her wallet belongs to her.

  8. Anonymous • December 23, 2008 @ 7:53 PM

    Why would Paris even bother getting her jewelry back? except her grandmothers ring that is. She should just forget it. She’s too stupid to be worth looking at.

  9. Anonymous • December 23, 2008 @ 7:55 PM

    she looks ugly in that picture!

  10. mandee • December 23, 2008 @ 11:52 PM

    jo, keep your snide rude comments to yourself. im sure if kate had an extra 2 million lying around, she wouldnt waste it on jewelry, and she WOULD put it to a better use, perhaps to help out a charity. you dont defend angelina jolie when she dishes out millions for charities but you are soo quick to defend the celebs that dont do a damn thing for the world? the difference between kate and paris (other than about 2 million dollars) is kate WORKS for her money, rather than just dressing and acting like a blonde bimbo so some perverted men can stare at her and give her money for it. basically, paris is a w h o r e.

  11. demigod • December 24, 2008 @ 4:06 AM

    Whether she recovers the items or not, no doubt she’s insured up the a$$.
    Having that kind of bling around, you’d wonder why she wouldn’t keep it in a vault or safe.

  12. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 10:44 AM

    my my mandee….

    me not defending Angelina is your sore spot? too bad for you, get over it. She copmpletely fits your description, in a word, of Paris.

    again I stand by what I said, completely.

    and speaking of working for money, maybe you should try it. I do, in fact two jobs, for yers now and hard as it may be at times, I am unwilling to accept minimum wage as my total earning capacity, unlike you. Stop whining and get off your butt instead of trashing people who have the bucks, whether they are independently wealthy or earn it.

  13. mandee • December 24, 2008 @ 2:23 PM

    lmfao. i do work, but what im thinking is angelina who spends all her money and time saving and helping people, and you still spend your “FREE” time even b*itching about HER! clearly its not that youre trying to defend paris, its that you wanted to pick a fight with kate since nancy and tribute girl arent here yet! and what im saying is for you to accuse kate of never doing anything to help the world, i doubt you donate millions to charity, or your free time, quite clearly since you spend it on here picking fights with people that have different opinions than you, or you make up reasons to fight with them, like basically telling them they are horrible people because they dont donate 2 million to charity. im simply stating if you make as much money as all these stars, if everyone ONE of them gave 1-2 million to a charity EACH not even a year, in say a lifetime, then all these places wouldnt need money from those of us that work for less than what 10 000 or more for 8 hours? you clearly dont work any 2 jobs because if you did im sure you wouldnt find the time between 2 jobs, and apparently being the only GOOD mother thats left in the entire world, to be online picking at people and commenting on stupid celeb gossip. merry christmas all, mayeb you should go spend some time with ur kids jo?? wouldnt that be what a GOOD mom does? lol

  14. mandee • December 24, 2008 @ 2:26 PM

    sorry i meant MAYBE…and i was wondering, what ever happened about that post where you tried to say *i will not be commenting to any of you anymore, nor will i be reading what youre saying* or whatever the hell it said? i know you tried to convince us you wouldnt be in here starting crap with me tg and nancy, but clearly, you dont know how to not fight with us when we comment or comment back to one of your vicious comments to someone else.

  15. Nancy • December 24, 2008 @ 3:03 PM

    “in fact two jobs, for years now and hard as it may be at times, I am unwilling to accept minimum wage as my total earning capacity, unlike you”………………please refer to the Miley Cyrus article below this one…comment by myself on Dec. 23 @ 4:44 pm. 😛

  16. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 4:07 PM

    actually, Mandee, my kids are in university and college, and one working and finishing high school before heading to college, clearly something you would benefit from.

    That’s what a good mom does, encourages her children to achieve their best in life.

  17. Nancy • December 24, 2008 @ 4:40 PM

    Yes, a good mother would do just that but, she would not put those children OR OTHERS CHILDREN down if they chose to take their time achieving their best or for taking another route in life!

  18. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 5:16 PM

    I don’t consider taking “another route” working minimal hours, bragging about making minimum wage and sitting on your ass complaining 24/7 cuz others have money and they chose to spend it in a way that suits them

    sue me

  19. mandee • December 24, 2008 @ 8:42 PM

    jo “actually, Mandee, my kids are in university and college, and one working and finishing high school before heading to college, clearly something you would benefit from.” that comment actually makes you pretty stupid if you ask me. given the fact that you dont know how old i am, dont know if i am in school or not, dont even know where i work. so maybe you should stop assuming you know anything, because you have clearly proven to us more times than not, that youre nothing but an idiot that likes to run her mouth and pretend she is queen of the universe. no one likes you, no one cares about you or your opinion, maybe you should find somewhere else to read celeb gossip? funny, youve sure posted a lot today, shouldnt you be at work? 😀

  20. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 9:01 PM

    I didn’t assume anything mandee, you yourself stated you make minimum wage, are lucky to work 20 hours a week…

    that’s all I referred to, and education can be gained at any age, so your age is not a factor.

    the fact you and your 2 buds don’t like me or care for my opinion hardly counts for the mass majority. Disagreement with my opinion on this website is nothing. zero.

    I actually have one day off in 11 days, so yes, this is it and I can safely say not only have I already contributed to spending time with all 3 of my kids home for Christmas, I’ve made a pile of dough this week through my extra work, I’ve got Christmas dinner prepared and I spent six hours doing charity work. And still time to post and have a wee bit of fun ruffling your feathers! Merry Christmas everyone and to all a good night.

  21. Anonymous • December 24, 2008 @ 9:14 PM

    wow people… get over it!

  22. Raine • December 25, 2008 @ 12:24 AM

    r0ckst4r wow, you took the words right outta my mouth.

    okay “children”, get over it. you guys are grown women, yet act like immature children picking a fight in preschool. playtime’s over kiddies. and jo-anne, you have CHILDREN?! wow. what would your kids say when they see this? i’m embarassed for you.

    but this is not my place to judge. maybe you like to downgrade yourself. your choice.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS Y’ALL. God bless your souls.

  23. mandee • December 25, 2008 @ 5:42 PM

    everyone knows that you dont do charity work. you cant even be nice to people on the internet, who is going to believe you know how to be nice to people that arent on the internet? youd probably go in and theyd say something you didnt like, and then youd insult them and try and pretend that youre better than them. you obviously spent the entire christmas online, not with family or doing anything. anyways i am gonna go i have stuff left i have to do. merry christmas all hope you all had a safe happy holiday and get to spend tons of time with the people you love.

  24. Jo-Anne. • December 26, 2008 @ 12:55 PM

    well, Raine, since you asked what my kids would say, I’ll help you out.

    They would say way to go mom, for encouraging us to continue schooling, work hard for a living and not be content with minimum wage and minimum hours of work, have a sense of humour in all this website chatter.

    why do you make so much more of this website than what it is? My “wee children” wouldn’t care less about this kind of stuff, their impression of it all would be far far less concern than you have given it.

    curious – why only me you chose to comment on in your, quote, “not my place to judge” statement. Way to be non judgmental….

    toodles, gotta go say five Hail Mary’s ha ha

  25. tributegirl • December 26, 2008 @ 1:09 PM

    Wow. Ok, I haven’t been on in awhile and wasn’t expecting all this. All righty then. Nancy and mandee, you both might want to skip this next bit, I believe if a person has something to say, they should say it, whether it’s naught or nice. And I have a few things to say.

    First off, I actually, for once, agree with something Jo said on the 23rd about Paris’s money being her own. Remember when her grandfather took her out of his will? We all said that it was his money to do with what he wanted. If Paris wants to spend her money on jewellery, that’s her business, hell, if she wants to spend it on used kleenex, that’s also her business. Stupid, but still her business.

    Now everybody knows I don’t agree with Jo most of the time, and her comments to mandee about maybe she should try working are uncalled for. For all we know, mandee could be in school full time and is working part time. Maybe she lives in an area that doesn’t have a lot of jobs available, maybe she’s upping her education now, we don’t know. So saying she should get off her butt and try working isn’t a fair comment to make.

    And lastly, Jo, if you are being honest about what your kids are doing, congratulations. I take education very seriously, and if your kids are doing all that, I say that’s great. I also have 3 kids, younger than yours, and they are all excelling in school, the two older ones are in various accellerated programs, and the little one is learning so much just from listening to them and is at the top of his class. I’ve always worked with my kids and encouraged them, and it’s paying off. And with other people, I don’t push anyone, but if anyone ever mentions to me that they are thinking of getting a better education, thinking of quitting smoking, whatever, I totally encourage them and offer to do whatever I can to help them. No matter who it is.

    Nancy and mandee are still my best buds on here, and I think Nancy is a great mom as well, but the things I just said to Jo, well, I felt it, so I had to say it.

  26. tributegirl • December 26, 2008 @ 1:11 PM

    HOLY BOOK!!! I didn’t realize it was that long!

  27. tributegirl • December 26, 2008 @ 1:12 PM

    HOLY BOOK!!! I didn’t realize my comment was that long! Sorry all, and Merry Christmas!

  28. mandee • December 27, 2008 @ 3:44 AM

    i really enjoyed reading your post tribute girl. and i agree, the money is hers so she can do what she wants, im just saying i dont understand why anyone would need that much jewelry lol. and thanks, youre absolutely right, jo has no idea what its like to live where i do. i live in south oshawa, there are no jobs available ANYWHERE and all of gm is closing, my dad who has worked there for 32 years may be beat out of his 100 000$ buy out, as well as his pension and medical benefits, the way my mother lost her 40 000$ when her work went under and lost all her benefits and everything. i have applied everywhere that is available and no one will hire me, and also, no one is hiring. my work is slowly going under, which is the reason my hours have been cut, and as soon as gm is done for good, i will be out of a job. so, youre right, jo shouldnt talk when she doesnt know. and youre pretty much the only friend i got on here, so im glad to know that you think im one of your best buds :D:D:D i hope you and your family had a very merry christmas. *im not sure if nancy likes me or not* hope you take care, and i hope to hear from from you soon, and incase i dont see you happy new year!

  29. tributegirl • December 27, 2008 @ 1:56 PM

    Oh wow, so you and your father both work for GM? That’s pretty scary right now. What do you think you will do? If he’s been there that long, can he take an early retirement? Would you consider leaving for another town for work? I have a good friend who had to go to Alberta about 14 years ago, he’s still there. Things still seem really good out there, but apparently it has slowed down a bit.

    And for the record, yeah, I don’t think anyone needs $2mil worth of jewellery, but she’s practically sweating money out her pores, she probably doesn’t know what else to spend it on, she pretty much has everything!

    And thanks, yeah, I had a great Christmas, did you? I didn’t get a lot of stuff myself, but there isn’t much I need or want anyway, but the looks on my kids faces, man, there’s nothing better than that!

    I’m hoping to be on here more this weekend, since I actually have this weekend off, shocker, but I have my son’s hockey tournament this weekend, and am expecting lots of company, so if I’m not talkin’ to ya, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

  30. mandee • December 27, 2008 @ 3:22 PM

    no, i dont work for gm, i work for a donut shop near gm. they werent hiring anyone when i was old enough to look for work. 🙁 but, my dad did take early retirement, so hes supposed to get 100 000$ and then 35 000 off a new car or truck, but if they close before he gets it in feb then he is out of his money. and my work will be closing as soon as gm does, because we are already closing at like 7pm every night meanwhile we are supposed to be open til 12am. yes i had a great christmas, thank you. i didnt get much either, but the stuff i did get was great. and i completely understand about the kids faces being enough. i have an autistic niece that i buy for every year my sister is on a pension and cant really afford wayy too much, so i usually go overboard and spend around 200 on her myself. well, i hope you have a great weekend, i am working this weekend. good luck to your son!!!! happy new year everyone

  31. Nancy • December 27, 2008 @ 5:16 PM

    I think you’re alright. We all don’t really “know” each other and have had our differences but bygones are bygones! I’m usually a pretty nice person and happy-go-lucky and r0ckst4r and Raine can call me “childish” all they want but I won’t change. I believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and those who don’t agree with those opinions should not be so rude such as, calling people “dumb”, “idiot” and “loser” and saying they should get jobs, etc. I’m not the type of person who can just turn away and pretend it never happened and I think that is a big problem in this world today….there are too many people who “allow” abusive and bullying behaviour. I’m not one of those people. Online or face to face, stranger or best friend…I’ll be sure to let you know that it’s not acceptable! Anyways, I’m sorry to hear about how this recession is affecting you and your family and I hope the gov’t helps out the auto companies. Have a safe and Happy New Year!

  32. tributegirl • December 28, 2008 @ 5:59 PM

    You’re right Nancy, too many people DO allow abusive behaviour, I think they are probably afraid of offending someone, or hurting someone’s feelings, but I’m like you, if someone’s gonna sh*t on me, I’m gonna sh*t on them right back, so if they can’t take it, they’d better not give it. And there were some awesome regulars on this site before who have just vanished, and I think maybe that’s why, they got sh*t on and were afraid to give it back. I think that’s a real shame, because they added so much character to this site.

  33. mandee • December 28, 2008 @ 7:20 PM

    i completely agree!!! i dont take anything from anyone. i am completely honest and out in the open, no matter what. if you dont like what im saying, dont read it 😛 and thanks so much nancy, i really hope the government helps out auto companies too!!! im still trying to decide what to be, for now im thinking chef. anyways happy new year all 🙂

  34. Nancy • December 28, 2008 @ 9:18 PM

    Hey, we all gotta eat, right?!! I’ll say the same as what I tell my own kids: do what makes you happy and the pay is just an added bonus. Life really sucks when you have to go to a job everyday that doesn’t fulfill you and make you happy just because you need the money. I know though, that sometimes we have no choice unless we relocate but, I’m sure your parents are proud of you no matter which route you choose in life!

  35. tributegirl • December 29, 2008 @ 6:33 PM

    My nephew is training to be a chef, mandee, he’s in his first year of a two year course, and he’s loving it. I think he’s hoping to end up working on a cruise line or something, but wherever he ends up working, he will be happy, because he will be doing something that he loves.

  36. mandee • January 2, 2009 @ 6:10 PM

    thanks, thats really good to know. because i love cooking at home, but im worried once i go to school and everything, it will turn out to be a mistake. im so worried at some point i will get everything i think ive ever wanted…then find out i was wrong.

  37. tributegirl • January 2, 2009 @ 8:24 PM

    mandee, the only worry I have about that career though, is with the recession, restaurants are one area I expect to be hit hard. I work in health care, and I know that there is a huge demand for skilled workers in all areas of health care. One thing a lot of people are getting into now is some sort of Continuing Care course or something like that, to assist the elderly in their home environments or in nursing homes. And in labs (blood collection), you could check to see what courses you may need for that, there’s a demand there too. Some places you don’t even need a course for blood collection, you get trained on the job.

  38. mandee • January 2, 2009 @ 10:17 PM

    well, i was thinking places like daycares, hospitals, senior homes, and stuff like that may need a chef??? im still deciding i guess. i want something that suits my personality but im not sure what my options are.

  39. tributegirl • January 3, 2009 @ 10:25 PM

    That’s true, maybe try to figure out what your different interests are, then start visiting these places & asking what courses are reqired, what type of work is involved, what kind of pay it is, that kind of stuff. Then try to narrow it down, if there are a lot of different things you could use the process of elimination method. It’s hard, a lot of people never figure out what they want to do. As long as you are happy with what you end up doing, and can support yourself and any kids you may have in the future, that’s what really matters.

  40. mandee • January 4, 2009 @ 12:51 AM

    thats true, thanks for the help !! 😀 i still really have no ideas, i may look into a few places around here and see if they have some kind of personality test that tells me which jobs are best suited for my answers. i will letcha know if i find anything. did you have a good new years? do you have a resolution?

  41. Nancy • January 4, 2009 @ 2:47 AM

    I have a resolution. Hee hee hee…going to do plenty of fishin’!!!

  42. tributegirl • January 4, 2009 @ 2:36 PM

    LMFAO!!! ME TOO!!!
    Oh yeah, I had a good New Years, we all went bowling, then to my parents to play pool and other games, the whole family gathers, it’s a lot of fun. There’s always a bit of alcohol available, but usually no one has any, which is nice. The kids all get to be involved in the New Years fun, they really enjoy it. No resolutions except for the same one Nancy just mentioned! How about you, what did you do?
    And keep me posted on what you do, I’ll keep checking this article, since it seems everyone else has moved on. This can be like our secret meeting place, until someone else arrives! Actually I’m sure Jo must have been on here, after her last comment I would think she’d be looking for a rebuttal, and I expect she probably didn’t know how to reply to my comment.

  43. mandee • January 4, 2009 @ 6:11 PM

    lmfao. yeah totally sounds like jo doesnt it? and sure, i love this article lol. well, im glad you had a good new years! it sounds like it was a lot of fun. i didnt do anything, i worked til like 9 or 10 then just came home and watched movies. pretty lame, but my family doesnt ever celebrate really. my new years resolution is to try and save some money. i spend ALL my money, i never have any saved. so, im going to try and stop spending so much. hope youre both having a great night !

  44. tributegirl • January 5, 2009 @ 8:44 PM

    Yeah, I even gave her an obvious hint to come and check out what I said to her, and knowing her she did check it out, but I think it would probably actually hurt her to say “thanks”. That’s why she’s being silent about my compliments. Nasty thing.
    Anyway, yeah, I find it hard to save money too, but it’s really important to learn. If you take a certain amount out of every paycheque & put it in a separate account and don’t let yourself think about it, that helps. It builds up quickly which is a big help when there is a sudden expense, like if you found a course you wanted to take, or car repairs, etc. Then it’s sitting there, ready and waiting.

  45. mandee • January 6, 2009 @ 12:02 AM

    i completely agree. jo doesnt know how to be anything but rude, ignorant and immature. in other news, i COULD say that i already broke my resolution, but at the same time, im thinking its ok. because i was mainly planning to save money to redo my one room into a living room *including painting etc* but, i spent 40$ on paint today, and basically the only other stuff i bought was a case of pop, a christmas tree *artifical bc it was onsale for 8$* lysol toilet cleaner for 2$ and 2 pairs of sunglasses, 2 for 10$. and im already out of money. oh and i also got gas. its really hard when my check is only 350 and i owe out 250. im gonna say because i put the money towards something i was trying to save to buy, that i didnt break anything lol.

  46. tributegirl • January 7, 2009 @ 10:12 AM

    Ug, wait till you have kids! Holy crap! They are expensive! You really have to be able to handle money well if you are planning on having kids, especially when they get older, because then they want to get involved in extra-curricular activities (which is good for them), some are fussy eaters so buying food can be a challenge and expensive, some will only wear certain styles, and the list goes on and on. All mine are in activities, I’ve always insisted on having them involved in stuff because I believe it helps keep them out of trouble, and so far I haven’t had any problems with them.

  47. mandee • January 7, 2009 @ 1:14 PM

    yeah i know having kids is gonna be crazy expensive. thats why im hoping to marry RICH ! 🙂 lol its good they stayed out of trouble. i dont understand kids that are high maintenance because i never was. i never had the urge to dress like everyone else, in name brands etc. lol i expect ALL my kids to be that way because i wasnt! and im glad your kids are staying out of trouble 🙂 means you know what youre doing! hope youre having a great day

  48. tributegirl • January 9, 2009 @ 6:57 PM

    Don’t plan on marrying rich though, if it happens, great, but make sure you only marry for love. Yeah, I was never into brand names or anything, but I think there’s a lot more pressure on kids these days than there used to be. And I think that’s a real shame, but it’s the way it seems to be.

  49. Nancy • January 9, 2009 @ 8:41 PM

    My daughter was being pressured by her friends to shop at Garage and Boathouse, etc., but she was great…not giving in to them. I buy her stuff that is on sale at those stores but other than that we go to Walmart and buy the best stuff they have and guess what? Her friends liked all the clothes she picked out! Now they shop at Walmart too! She told them the same thing that I told her…why would you spend $80 for a shirt when you can get 4 or 5 of them just as nice for the same price? I just take her to the sales at La Senza Girl, Garage, Gap and Boathouse. I’m a single mom and even if I was rich, she still wouldn’t get an $80 shirt!!

  50. tributegirl • January 9, 2009 @ 9:51 PM

    Garage and Bluenotes are my daughters favorite stores, but we don’t get ANYTHING that isn’t on sale. Ever. The regular prices are insane, the sale prices are often really good. We have one Garage store that is pretty big, so they get a lot of the sale stuff from the smaller stores, so their sale section is really big, love it! There’s another store she loves, Aeropostale, it’s very expensive too, even sale items are often very expensive, so I’ll take her in and we’ll look for things on really good sales. We don’t often get anything there. She goes to Walmart too, got her boots there, and she absolutely loves them. In fact, there is a 2nd hand clothing store in my town, sizes newborn to 16, and we actually got 3 pairs of jeans for her there recently, one was Garage, one was Bluenotes, I forget the brand of the other pair, I paid less than $30. Had a bit of altering done, $10. So less than $40 for 3 pair of jeans that look brand new.

  51. mandee • January 10, 2009 @ 12:47 AM

    thats good, im glad that your kids are not materialistic like a lot of the other young age kids. i never felt the need to ever try to impress anyone, or be like anyone else. so it didnt matter to me what i was wearing, as long as **I** liked it. walmart is my fave place to shop. i love it.

  52. tributegirl • January 10, 2009 @ 8:13 PM

    I absolutely love walmart. My daughter could have been very materialistic if I hadn’t worked to raise her to be different than that, she loves fashion, thankfully I’ve taught her about money and common sense as well. And that’s had a big payoff, because even though she loves fashion, she ISN’T materialistic. And my boys don’t care about that stuff at all, as long as they have something to wear.

  53. coffee • February 13, 2009 @ 3:47 AM

    Fortunately for Paris she only lost one of her more modest jewelry collections…
