What Paris Hilton wants, Paris Hilton gets. Even if it’s a $400,000
diamond-studded dashboard for her hot pink Bentley Continental. What recession?
Paris bought the luxurious ride as a Christmas present to herself and decided
that pink upholstery, pink hubcaps, a pink grill, and her initials on the famous
Bentley badge weren’t enough to impress her BFFs. That’s when her assistant
called the Bentley headquarters in Crewe, England to see about bedazzling the
“I guess she’s not hit too badly by the recession,” a Bentley source told
The Sun in the UK.
“We’re used to dealing with the stars so we expect the odd extravagance, but
this is something else,” the Bentley source added.
So why does Paris feel the need to have a diamond-studded pink ride?
“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,” she added.
The Sun also reports that the economy might get the better of Paris
after all. Bentley had to halt production until May due to a slump in sales, so
the diamond dashboard won’t be dazzling the paparazzi until early summer.
