I suppose this is slightly happier news, if you know/care about Nicky Hilton. Last we heard of her, she was being dissed by Chloe Sevigny, and if that’s not D-List enough for you, I don’t know what is. But today, Nicky’s got big things happening: she’s engaged to banking heir James Rothschild. Don’t you love when money falls in love with money?
From US Weekly:
The Hilton Hotels heiress and fashion designer, according to the pal, said yes to her banker beau last weekend in Lake Como, Italy.
“They are both really excited and incredibly happy,” the insider tells Us of the pair.
Hilton, 30, and Rothschild (the heir to the famous European banking family) started dating in 2011 after meeting at supermodel Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt’s wedding in Italy. The sentimental spot was the ideal setting for Rothschild to propose.
“They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend,” the source reveals. “He took her out on a boat into the middle of Lake Como and he proposed, got down on one knee and everything. It was incredibly romantic and beautiful.
Rothschild, it turns out, went to great lengths to make sure all the details were secured before he popped the question. The insider tells Us: “Last month, he actually flew from England (where he is based) to the States to ask her parents for her hand in marriage!”
Well, that’s sweet, I guess. So what will they do now? Well, they plan to celebrate their impending nuptials by going on a road trip around Europe, because what better do rich 30-somethings have to do with their lives than absolutely nothing?
Oh, whatever – let’s (pretend to) be nice today. Congrats to the happy couple!

3Quotables: Style Icon Chloe Sevigny Disses Nicky Hilton; Also, Seems Kind of Obsessed with ‘Jersey Shore’
“I read somewhere that Abercrombie & Fitch offered to pay The Situation not to wear their clothes—but who am I to say who should be wearing mine? I do remember someone saying that… what’s Paris Hilton‘s sister called? Isn’t it Nicky or something? Anyway, she apparently talked to someone about my first collection, and was like, ‘I don’t get it.’ I was like, Good! I’m glad she doesn’t get it. It’s not for her. Besides, what’s there to get with clothes? So if Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it. I think she’d look a lot better in them.”
But what is Chloë really trying to say here? Do I detect a barely-veiled attack on Nicky Hilton? Here, let me run that quote through my Mean Girl Translator. Ah, yes: Sevigny said, “I have been obsessed with Nicky Hilton ever since I overheard her complaining about the way I dress. Now I will pretend like I can’t even think of her name. Nicky? I’m sorry, Nicky Who?”
I see, too, that Chloë would be willing to selflessly sacrifice her style credibility if it only meant she could get Snooki out of that awful leopard print. Also, Chloë seems to know an awful lot about the Jersey Shore cast, don’t you think?
What else did Chloë say about Jersey Shore?
“I think it’s really depressing that people are propping these people up as celebrities. The way they behave is embarrassing, and I think it’s kind of diminishing our culture. Most reality TV people behave like pigs, and it’s unfortunate that they get put on pedestals for doing so.”
But! She also said,
“I have to admit, I do find that JWoWW sexy in a really weird way. It’s like that sexy, dirty kind of girl—not dirty, but like a hot mess. We’ve all gotten too drunk and acted crazy at parties, but I don’t maintain that and I’m kind of fascinated by those girls who do.”
Of course! The “Hot Mess” appeal, right. Don’t worry, Chloë, it’s OK to feel conflicted. I actually know exactly how you feel!
For instance, on the wall of my office, I have tacked up a Uniqlo poster* of Chloë—oh, what is she called? Chloë Sevigny or something? Yeah, her. I can’t explain it, but she is bizarrely magnetic. She acts like a total space alien. And I mean, I don’t maintain that, but I’m kind of fascinated by girls who do.
*I am really not kidding. She is posing fiercely with a comparatively complacent Tadanobu Asano, and something about the whole thing really tickles me. Oh, Chloë! So yeah, it’s very much on the wall in the other room.

Everyone’s still in Cannes partying their faces off because they’re fucking rich and I’m poor and I never go anywhere and I’m tired and my bones hurt. I’m sorry. ANYWAYYSSS…
Paris Hilton and her sister Nicky (who just has the bitchiest face ever, and I’m sorry because I tried to like her but every time I see her I’m like, “Oh, that bitch is judging the hell out of someone right now.”) were partying it up in Cannes last night when Paris’ ass decided that it no longer could be contained and popped out to say hello to guests partying beneath them in the non-VIP section. It happens, man. I’m not Nicky Hilton, I’m not going to judge Paris for that. Sometimes you’re at the club and your ass falls out. It’s fun to look at, but let’s not chastise the girl for it.
Now does anyone want to pay for me to go on a vacation?
(UPDATE: The ass shot has been moved from the front page because apparently it’s NSFW. To me it was about as offensive as the Coppertone girl, but I am a raging whore so I probably wasn’t being sensitive to everyone’s virgin eyes/work situations.)

Paris Hilton (remember her?) was spotted out and about in LA yesterday with sister, Nicky, looking, well, like a
semi-normal human being.
It’s almost kind of one of those “Where’s Waldo” photos or “What’s wrong with this picture” ads. I mean, no exposed snatch, no greasy heir on her arm, no bow-legged skinny-cow stance. I’m … confused.
I actually kind of miss the old, golden gossip days where Paris was hooking up with this one and getting engaged to that one … I mean, she still looks the same: poorly bleached hair of a very unnatural shade, tiny, baby-doll dresses and huge sunglasses, but guys … she’s changed inside or something. Yeah, she’s still trying to party with VS models and still trying to release that fabled album, but … damn, it’s just not the same.
Could it be that old wonky-eye is growing up? I’ll be honest, Paris — you’ve kinda made me proud. Bored, yes, but proud — I guess so!

Tila Tequila is still out her damn mind and it’s completely ruining the moment while we’re trying to mourn Casey Johnson. Yesterday she got in to a fight with Nicky Hilton and Bijou Phillips over her deceased fiancee’s dogs, the visual of which is just absolutely hilarious. Nicky, who is Casey’s daughter’s godmother, and Bijou had been sent over to Tila’s house to pick up the pooches, but Tila wasn’t having any of it.
They fought verbally until eventually two LAPD squad cars were called. Nicky and Bijou were given possession of the dogs and as they took them away, Tila said through tears, “They don’t care about the dogs. They are putting them to sleep to bury with Casey.” This was immediately shut down by Bijou who said there was no such plan. Tila Tequila is insane. Put the dogs down to sleep to bury them with their owner? What kind of serial killer mentality is that? That’s disgusting. Do people do that?
Oh and then there’s this:
This chick scares the bejesus out of me, you guys.

Most people don’t seem to know who Casey Johnson, the Johnson&Johnson heiress who passed away yesterday, but Paris and Nicky Hilton sure did. The fellow heiresses were family friends with Casey and according to Paris’ Twitter eulogy, this is not easy news for them to hear. While Paris Tweeted her condolences, Nicky Hilton, her mom Kathy and her boyfriend David Katzenberg went to the Johnson home last night to offer their support.
No one seems to be taking the news as hard as Casey’s future wife, Tila Tequila. In fact, she’s so upset that she just can’t stop Tweeting about it. Here are some of her Twitter posts from last night:
I know u can feel me Casey! Dot let go! I’m almost home baby please hang on! We have a beautiful life planned out for us! I LOVE u! Hang on!
I’m still in shock! Once again thank U for the outpour of love and support. I just wish to have some privacy at this heartbreaking time.
R.I.P my Angel. @caseyjonsonJnJ u will forever be in my heart! I love u so so much and we will Marry when I see U in Heaven my Wifey
I can’t stop these haunting visions of her and I. We made such a lovely couple, only beginning to spend the rest of our lives together…
It’s nice that she took a night off from the computer and whatever the hell she’s on to just grieve, right?
As for the cause of death, we’re still waiting and it looks like we’re going to be waiting for awhile. Because of the high-profile nature of her case, Casey’s autopsy results have been sealed and won’t be released until about a month from now. There’s a chance that the family may make an announcement before then and we will definitely hear rumors, but nothing official should be released for awhile.
The common COD is widely believed to be drug use, but it may also be diabetes related. Wow, that sounds awfully familiar.
