Are Paris Hilton’s pay-to-party days in Las Vegas over?
Washington: Paris Hilton’s pay-to-party days in Sin City may be numbered because of her cocaine arrest in Las Vegas.
The hotel heiress is considered one of the most sought after celebrities for Las Vegas nightclubs.
"Because Vegas nightclubs are under so much scrutiny right now, I don`t know how welcome she would be,” People mag quoted a club executive who has booked Hilton, 29, to host parties, as saying.
"Considering she`s busted for cocaine, people might assume that she`s going to the club either to use coke or she`s already on coke, and no club wants to be associated with that."
"A club would never be allowed to book Paris for an appearance right now," says another Las Vegas night-life insider, a former club executive who also has booked the heiress in the past.
"A club would want to book her because of the press it would generate right now, but it would never happen because no one wants to jeopardize gaming licensing or liquor licensing."
The lack of bookings may also lead to a hit in Hilton`s pocketbook. She once garnered six-figure paydays to simply show up. She was paid 125,000 dollars to hold her 25th birthday at a Vegas club, sources say.
She`d still be allowed past the velvet rope, says the former executive, but would face the same scrutiny as any other club-goer: "Her bag would be checked before entering the club."
