is having a £300,000 diamond-encrusted dashboard

made for her pink Bentley.

The hotel heiress, 27, will have it flown out from the firm’s British HQ in Crewe to be fitted to her £140,000 Continental GT in Los Angeles.

Cutting a dash … Paris at the wheel of her car

But she may have to wait — the Cheshire plant is halting production until early May due to the economic downturn.

A Bentley source said last night: I guess she’s not hit too badly by the recession.

Paris got one of her guys to phone Bentley in Crewe, where the vehicle was made, to ask if it would be possible to give it a little more sparkle.

When the man said she wanted to stud the dashboard with a couple of hundred grand’s worth of diamonds, we were stunned.

We’re used to dealing with the stars so we expect the odd extravagance, but this is something else.

Paris bought the Bentley in December as a Christmas present to herself.

She had it sprayed pink and the Bentley badge replaced with her own initials. The upholstery, grille and hubcaps are also pink and the car has a tint on the windows to prevent photographs being taken of her inside.

She gushed:

I’ve just always wanted a pink car.

I think when you’re a little girl and you have the Barbie Corvette you’re always like, ‘Oh, I wish I had a car like this one day.’

I think it just comes from being a fan of Barbie for so long

  1. There really was something good about her being in jail.

    Not a scintilla of grounding in real life.

    If only she’d have been named after one of the company’s other outlets.

    Coylumbridge Hilton has a nice ring to it don’t you think?

    Isn’t there more a Lady Penelope thing going on there than Barbie BTW?

  2. Nice to know that the wealthy ain’t troubled by a conscience, innit?

    That amount of cash, although not massive, could still have changed the quality of life for really deserving people in desperate need

    I really don’t know how these fukkers can sleep at night … probably because they all had an empathy by-pass

  3. My kids sometimes watch “cribs” on MTV where various rap and R&B (and other) “artists” show off their houses and cars.

    The wealth and opulence of these people (hardly any of whom I’ve even heard of)is astonishing.

    In rare cases wealth does imbue empathy and philanthropy. David Beckham for example has set up soccer coaching schools in various locations open to all.

    However these things shouldn’t be left to the largesse of rich people with a conscience.

    In England the £100k per week footballer is now not uncommon. Makes Fred Goodwin look frugal!

    Meanwhile our local hospital the Vale of Leven is under continuous threat of closure and loses a range of services each year.

    pass the sick bag.

    1. Well, Rab … d’ye know that hip-hop now outsells ALL other music genres combined in the US ie. Rock, Country, Jazz, etc … so, some of these boys are VERY rich

      But … and a huge butt at that … most that feature on these shows, including the Hello & Ok type photo-spreads, actually rent the property to be featured, including all the furnishings … and rent it, JUST for the filming

      Or … like beer … which you never own, but merely rent for a few hours

      Or, they might appear opulent … until the tax-bill comes in and the career runs out

      I’ve worked on TV shows with top album charting acts, who arrive in stretch limos, stay in posh hotels, paid for by the company, and are actually cadging fags & drinks backstage ‘cos they’re earnings are crap

      It’s ALL an illusion

      The Simon Cowells make the money … not the performers

      The exceptions … the Bowie’s, U2, Dylan, etc … are the exceptions

      After 4 or 5 years, many if not most, are skint!!!

      As far as those who do contribute to “good causes” …. hmmmm?

      How anybody can justify their other excesses … the £75 grand watch, the £100 grand birthday bash … while there is still extreme poverty outside their own door, just baffles me

      Some of their “charity-work” is nothing more than a sop, to salve their own conscience, I feel

  4. Aye. I’m no fan of Beckham or his missus. Just pointing out that he’s done a couple of worthwhile bits and pieces rather than the standard hee-haw.

    Niall Quinn the former Sunderland and Republic of Ireland player donated his whole testimonial fund of £1m to charity which is a pretty big sop. You’re right though, the philanthropic rich are the exception rather than the rule.

    If these guys and girls do indeed rent the properties it makes the whole thing an even sadder and more pathetic circus than I thought.
