Scoop: Paris maintains story on coke, pot charges

Paris Hilton looks totally unfazed in her latest mug shot, but she may be looking at one to four years in jail if convicted. The blond heiress reportedly faces felony charges of cocaine possession.

The celebutante was busted last weekend in Las Vegas when cops stopped her sport utility vehicle after reportedly smelling marijuana smoke. While being questioned, she pulled a tube of lip gloss out of her purse and, the arresting officer said, “I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand.”

According to TMZ, Paris confessed to having Albuterol, but said she had not seen the other drugs, claiming she borrowed the purse from a friend. Since then, she has allegedly amended her story to say the purse was indeed hers, but a friend had been borrowing it.

“I had no idea the cocaine was there. I swear on my life,” Paris reportedly told friends. “It could be a setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am.”

She’s said to have told cops the cash and credit cards inside were hers, but some of the cosmetics weren’t.

Like, perhaps, the telltale lip gloss?

 

Texas twosome

The cat is definitely out of the bag: Kat Von D has been photographed holding hands with new boyfriend Jesse James.

On Sunday, the couple was spotted strolling down the street together in a town outside Austin, Texas, where the divorced biker relocated to be closer to ex-wife Sandra Bullock. Kat and Jesse arrived on a motorcycle, witnesses told Radar Online, and made their way to a World War II museum.

Though the pair may have thought they could keep a low profile, their tattoos probably tipped off locals.

“They didn’t go unnoticed,” one resident said.

On Friday, Kat reportedly flew into Austin to spend the weekend with Jesse and returned home, in first class, Monday.

The reality TV stars were first seen together at a dinner date in Las Vegas two weeks ago, but at the time they denied being more than just friends. Then, a tweet from Kat acknowledged a romance — but she deleted the message soon afterward.

Good luck, you two crazy kids!

 

Snooki proposal

Well, this is a first. Of all the cheesy ways for a guy to propose, trust Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s beau to find the cheesiest — appearing on the cover of a magazine emblazoned with the words “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

Iraq veteran Jeff Miranda appears shirtless in his fatigues and boots — on bended knee, natch — on the cover of New Jersey-based Steppin’ Out magazine.

Explaining why he wants to make the spunky “Jersey Shore” star his bride, Jeff said, “I want us to be together forever. I could see us having children. I want to pop the question to her. If we got married, we would be the best parents around. She’s so loving and puts everyone else before herself. She’ll be a great mother.”

(We just got a creepy mental image of Snooki sporting her trademark hair pouf and a baby bump.)

How does he expect Snooki to respond to him announcing his intentions in print?

“Once she deals with the shock, I think she’ll say yes,” Jeff said. “I will never break her heart. People think I’m using her for fame. But, that’s [not true].”

Did we mention that these two have been dating for two weeks?
