Paris Hilton backpedals on AIDS remark

Getty Images File PhotoParis Hilton was recorded by a New York cabbie talking about gay men and AIDS.

Paris Hilton really could use some press after being eclipsed by the Kardashians’ orbs time and again. But be careful what you wish for, oh ye beautiful twit.

Radar has gotten its hands on a recording that a New York cabbie made of Hilton talking about gay men: “They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS. … I would be so scared if I was a gay guy. You’ll like, die of AIDS.”

Her publicist went into immediate FEMA mode (F—— Egomaniac Misbehaved Again): “Paris Hilton’s comments were to express that it is dangerous for anyone to have unprotected sex that could lead to a life-threatening disease.”

See? She actually was just making a PSA. Funny to consider that a woman named for a French hotel is giving lectures on safe sex.

Docile witness

And speaking of blond dolts on the D-list, Kato Kaelin has allegedly been freed of his self-imposed witness protection program, and could be coming clean about the events of June 12, 1994.

Kaelin was the only person who was with O.J. Simpson around the time of the double homicides. Now that he can no longer be prosecuted for perjury, the New York Post reported that he admitted to lying on the stand in the infamous trial.

“Yes, he did it,” he is quoted as saying about Simpson, adding that he was too terrified to be honest back then. But Kaelin shot back at the Post on TMZ, saying that he never told them that, and that they just made the whole story up. Not that anyone ever buys anything this guy says. Kaelin admits that his life as a pariah has been hell. “I’ve been spat upon,” he said. “They threw gum in my coffee.”

Oh, dear, not the dreaded “damning By Dentyne”! Didn’t the same thing happen to Mussolini’s cappuccino before they strung him up by his heels?

Quick Takes

  • Border patrol agents in Texas found hashish on Fiona Apple’s tour bus and promptly arrested the singer.
  • When asked whom she would want to trade lives with for one day, Kim Kardashian said “Jesus.”
  • The Walt Disney Co. lent EuroDisney $1.7 billion dollars to try and wrest itself from debt through refinancing.
  • MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has won the prime-time news show ratings war against Fox’s Bill O’Reilly.
  • “Hitchcock,” a biopic of the portly, eccentric director starring Anthony Hopkins, moved its release up to November so that it can have Oscar consideration.
