EXCLUSIVE: It’s Snowing At Paris Hilton’s House!

Forget mourning about her recent breakup with Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, Paris Hilton is celebrating being single this holiday season — and is sparing no expense. A source reveals exclusively to Scandalist that Paris sent out an e-mail to her close pals inviting them to an exclusive soiree at her Los Angeles home tonight.

Paris has even shipped in real snow to her Hollywood Hills home for her pals to play in. If they tire of the snow, Paris’ nightclub — located conveniently in the downstairs of her home — will be open late. As if they needed any more convincing, Paris promises to provide “yummy food and drinks” to partygoers. Cheers! [Photo: Getty Images]

Citizen Scandal: Teen Girls Laugh At Wounded Armed Robbery Victim

In the security video above, two teenagers rob a middle-aged man at a Chinese carryout restaurant in Baltimore last August, shooting the victim in the knee before leaving. But that’s not what has city officials shocked as the suspects go to trial: it’s the two teenage girls smiling and laughing during the hold-up.

“Girls standing there. They continued to laugh. Blood’s all over him”, said Mayor Sheila Dixon. “People come back in and get their orders. It’s like business as usual. Clearly…we have some very mentally disturbed individuals in the city.”

Prosecutor Jen Rollo described what happened after the clip. “He is left to live or die on his own. No one helps. He is in pain,” said Rollo. “He asks to go behind the counter because he is afraid these individuals will return and shoot him again. And the store actually continues serving customers as [the victim] is bleeding on the floor.” The suspects, 17-year-olds Darren Brown and David Jefferson, are being charged as adults with first-degree attempted murder.

Audrina Patridge: Hot Hood Ornament

Normally we’re, like, 85% into Audrina Patridge. She’s got the brunette thing going for her, and the bod, of course. But there’s something about her wonky eyes and her Justin Bobby addiction that throws us off. However, last night she used her hard-earned reality TV fame to gain an invite to some Hollywood party, and she looked 100% banging. Her eyes were completely open, and everything else – outfit, hair, blank stare – was on point. Suck it, Lauren Conrad!  [Photo: WireImage]

Pete Wentz: My Baby Pics Are Not For Sale!

Did we laugh too soon? Pete Wentz ran to his blog last night to dismiss rumors that no one wants to buy pictures of a baby named Bronx Mowgli. According to him, he didn’t even put them up for sale (perhaps, but did Papa Joe?). From his post, titled, “ring, ring, it’s the truth calling” (sounds like a Fall Out Boy song title):

About baby pics gossip: truth is like every celeb couple we were offered mounds and mounds of money by mags from here to Guam to pimp out the baby. We just don’t want to go down that road with him.

We are not placing judgment on those that do as they often use the money in a very charitable way. However, we have made the decision to not sell Bronx’s baby pictures right now. We understand that like other celebrities have said, “there is a bounty on our heads” for these pictures. There is a danger when there are cameras being held over walls and into our backyard. We are followed day and night and that was fine when it was us but we are going to do our best to shelter Bronx from that as much as possible.

…ps trust me he’s cute. he looks like his mommy.

So let’s get this straight: to protect your child from overzealous photographers, you’re going to deny us staged photos? Won’t the paps be more aggressive now that a good look at the kid will be worth something? Maybe you should let Papa Joe do the thinking, Pete.

Gossip Geek: ’90s Spin-Off Just Someone’s Spin

Words of wisdom: if something’s too good to be true—like a Gossip Girl prequel set in the ’90s—it probably is. When Star promised a spin-off covering the romance between dad-rocker Rufus and mom-groupie Lily, we were psyched.

The show will focus on the early romance between Lily and Rufus. It begins when they first meet, during a time when Rufus and his band are at the height of their career. The show will follow the high society and rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle in New York.

Too bad no one told the CW about it. E! says the Rufus-Lily flashbacks were designed for a scrapped series of webisodes. Sigh! Maybe they realized the star-crossed pair couldn’t have sexed in the ’90s before marrying others if their kids are high school seniors today (do the math!).

Whatevs. Just give him a late ’80s mullet. Lincoln Hawk sounds more Richard Marx than Eddie Vedder anyway.

XDXD. Gossip Geek.

Afternoon Snack: Adorable Animal Abuse

If it doesn’t already feel like a Friday to you, these pictures should do the trick. Meet Sandra Hartness, a dog groomer who happily claims that she can turn her pet poodle Cindy into, well, anything. Sandra apparently has the brainwashing skills of Tom Cruise, because Cindy just stands around and lets her owner go to town, turning her into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, among other horrible creations. And while her designs do look like something you’d find on an airbrushed t-shirt won at the State Fair, we can’t help but admire Sandra’s handiwork. More dog torture below.

Paris Hilton And Gumby: Two Peas In A Pod

Why is Paris Hilton running around in green tracksuits with hugely flared bottoms and green dresses? Is it an environmental statement? Or could it be that Paris is modeling herself after Gumby? You have to admit, Paris and Gumby, both around 30 years old, have a lot in common.

Both are long, lanky and flexible. Both have had their own TV shows, speak in child-like voices, and make people laugh.  And both Paris and Gumby make music — even though we’re pretty sure neither of them can actually write music. Check out photos of Paris’ Gumbyfication.
