When it came to describing the role Paris Hilton has played in his life, photographer Karl Larsen did not fear the overstatement. "I am Leonardo da Vinci and she is Mona Lisa. Or I am Michelangelo and she is the Sistine Chapel," he said.

LAPD detectives were hunting Friday for a thief who made off with an estimated $2 million worth of jewelry after ransacking the Mulholland Estates mansion of socialite Paris Hilton in a brazen overnight burglary. In what may be one of the city's highest-dollar home break-ins this year, a security guard called police shortly after 5 a.m. Friday to report a burglary at Hilton's house in a gated community nestled in the hills of Sherman Oaks.

Paris Hilton is seemingly everywhere recently, promoting her new MTV reality show, "Paris Hilton's My New BFF" (10 p.m. Tuesdays), and showing up at a soundtrack release party to promote her latest film, "Repo! The Genetic Opera," last week at the Abbey in West Hollywood. (The film comes out in November.) So what does the night life fixture, who gets paid to show up at clubs from Las Vegas to London, like to do on a weekend in L.A. now that she is in a solid relationship with rocker Benji Madden?

Paris Hilton has gone on television to find not just a new best friend but a new best friend forever. Tuesday night, MTV premiered its latest reality series, "Paris Hilton's My New BFF," in which 18 complete strangers vie to fill that empty spot in Paris' life. There are some kinds of celebrity that are apparently immune to scandal -- neither sex tapes, nor jail time, nor a catalog of youthful indiscretions posted permanently on the Internet have significantly sullied the star's reputation or made her less of a figure of fandom.

TORONTO -- Paris Hilton was present but not accounted for on Tuesday night at the world premiere of Adria Petty's 68-minute documentary "Paris, Not France" at the Ryerson Theatre. Hilton attended the screening, although she never took to the stage or addressed the crowd apart from a friendly wave on her way out immediately after the credits rolled. A snapshot portrait of the year Petty (daughter of musician Tom ) spent traveling with and interviewing Hilton, the film had generated some buzz when its lone press screening and two of its three public screenings were mysteriously pulled.

When is a sprinkle more than icing on the cake? Apparently when you're a much-imitated Beverly Hills bakery. Sprinkles, the chain that started in 2005 and became a favorite of Oprah Winfrey and Paris Hilton, is suing Famous Cupcakes in West Hollywood. Sprinkles claims Famous Cupcakes is stealing its "modern dot" trademark, that circle-on-a-circle, color-coded piece of candy that tops every Sprinkles cupcake and helps distinguish a Red Velvet, say, from a Chai Latte. Famous Cupcakes opened six months ago and uses dots as a motif on its packaging, in its store and on its website, though owner Desiree Adl said her cupcakes have no dots.
