Dear Paris Hilton

by | 5th, September 2006

Money For Nothing

Sven Goran Eriksson is still being paid £13,000 a day by the Football Association – despite losing his job as England football manager over two months ago. And under the terms of his contract he will receive a further £3.2million this season if he fails to secure another job. Nice no work if you can get it.

No Room For Hilton

Paris Hilton was all set to appear on Charlotte Church’s new chat show The Charlotte Church Show. But when she asked for £350,000 appearance money, the date was cancelled. She doesn’t come cheap.

Carey Street

Preparing for her concert in New York, there was a knock at Mariah Carey’s dressing room door. “We were sent by private jet to deliver this gift,” said an envoy representing the Sultan of Brunei’s son Prince Azim. The singer was duly presented with an eight-carat flawless diamond and platinum necklace and a matching ring worth £3million. And some garage forecourt carnations from Anorak.

Big W******!

Big Brother winner Pete Bennett has signed a £1million book deal. Pete’s story will reveal what it’s like to live with Tourette’s syndrome. “It’s amazing to be working on my story,” says Pete. The book’s title is unknown, but “W******!” is a favourite.

Some Like It Haunted

Cat Deeley has spent £2million on the Hollywood mansion once lived in by Marilyn Monroe. It was the house where the screen icon was found naked and dead on her bed in 1962. And it might be haunted.


The British are coming – and they’re wearing period costume and stripper’s shoes. Dame Helen Mirren has won an Emmy for Best Actress In a Mini Series or Movie for her performance in Elizabeth I. “My biggest triumph is not falling arse over tit,” said she collecting her gong. “If you saw the shoes I had on you’d understand.” The shoes cost Helen $49.99 on Hollywood Boulevard, and add an extra six inches to her legs.

Nice In Nice

Rod Stewart has spent £3.5million on a villa in the south of France, near Nice. The pad has four bedrooms, a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, gym and home cinema. Rod is spending £70,000 on renovations.

Royal Budgets

Are times hard for Princess Michael of Kent, aka Princess Pushy, and her husband? The royals were spotted travelling by budget airline easyJet from Palma, Majorca, to Gatwick. The Kents bought plastic-wrapped sandwiches and, according to the Daily Mail, shared a packet of Maltesers.

Mrs & Mrs average

The average British salary is £28.941. Company bosses earn the most (£171,509), followed by doctors (£81,744) and brokers (£80,233). The lowest earners are theme park attendants (£10,420).

No Romance Without Finance

A Survey by National Savings and Investments found that men regard a woman who earns £42,000 as successful. While women consider a man wealthy if he earns £50,000. Forty-five per cent of women said a good bank balance was their top priority when looking for a partner.
