Paris Hilton joined in the revelry of South Africa's World Cup last week (because you know how she likes soccer players) by almost getting herself arrested for possession of a little herbal refreshment. But she avoided the clink and spent the weekend partying with Leonardo DiCaprio, who'd earlier been seen taking in a game with noted Cup curse Mick Jagger. Celebrities: They're just like us! Only on the other side of the television.
Paris was arrested Friday during the Netherlands' defeat of Brazil in the quarterfinals; police said she had marijuana. A judge threw out the charge a few hours later but fined Paris's friend, Playboy model Jennifer Rovero, $130 for possession. Which proves that Paris is smarter than Michael Vick, because she has someone else hold her drugs for her. She told her Twitter followers a few hours later, "There's a lot of crazy rumors going around. Just want you all to know the truth. Everything is completely fine. I was not charged or arrested, cause I didn't do anything."
The next night, after Germany and Spain knocked out Argentina and Paraguay, respectively, for spots in the semifinal, Paris was spotted out in Cape Town at a club called Fez, partying with Leonardo DiCaprio. A source told The New York Post, "She looked so relieved. She and her friends were on a table next to Leo and his entourage. They hung out all night, but went their separate ways at the end." We fervently hope Paris and her pals were, in fact, on the table.
So this is one instance in which we are legitimately jealous of Paris Hilton. Because it has been our lifelong—well, okay, since like 1994—dream to hang out with Leonardo DiCaprio, and because we would really like to be in South Africa right now.
