Has Time Run Out for Paris-Mania?

Are her 15 minutes officially up? Will the Paris phenomenon be coming to an end soon? Can we all get restraining orders against Paris?

One fine example of how the table have turned for Ms Hilton is the change of heart with VF Editor in Chief, Graydon Carter. He supposedly denied Paris access to the coveted VF Oscar Party even after appearing on the magazine's cover only 6 months ago. WWD reports that Graydon said this last week:

He turned on a recent cover subject last Friday, when he dissed Paris Hilton on the HBO show "Real Time With Bill Maher." Carter said Hilton wouldn't be coming to the Vanity Fair Oscar party at Morton's, even after she appeared on the magazine's October 2005 cover. "The only Hilton we'll allow in is Conrad Hilton, in an urn," he said on air, adding, "I think the 15 minutes of fame is almost an exaggeration for this generation because there's nothing to support whatever — there's no quality behind what they do." Perhaps the love lost had something to do with the fact that the Hilton cover was controversial within Condé Nast, where many complained it cheapened the magazine.

Compared to last year when he defended her nothing talents here. Looks like even the best of the industry was fooled by her. I have seen the Graydon quote in other places sound much harsher like this: "Paris who? She will never attend one of the parties I host." Ouch - someone feels burned. Is it because she announced her endless love for a man she had broken up with by the time the magazine was on the newsstand OR are we all just a little sick of Paris overall?
