Paris hangs her PR bodyguard out to dry
Poor Elliot Mintz. You spend all your days trying to explain away the ridiculous things your client says and does (no doubt for quite a salary, mind), and this is the thanks you get. Soon-to-be jailbird Paris Hilton fired her manager after blaming him for getting her idiot self sentenced to the clink for 45 days, AFP reports.
As you’ll recall, Hilton testified Friday that Mintz had told her it was okay for her to drive for work-related purposes when she was busted for violating her probation, and Mintz also said that sounded about right. But as life goes in the Hilton world, it’s fine to blame someone else for your stupidity.
Says Mintz to TMZ: “I am deeply and profoundly sorry. I told her that I assume personal responsibility for my part in this matter. I believe when stated in court that she believed it was okay for her to drive under certain circumstances she was being absolutely truthful.” Sounds like he’s already interviewing for a new PR gig.
