What an heirhead!

Paris Hilton – a total idiot or the smartest woman on the planet?

The hotel heiress made an embarrassing mistake while in England to promote her new reality TV show ‘Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend’, saying she thought TV chef Gordon Ramsay was the British Prime Minister.

After explaining she is desperate to find a UK pal because she “loves Britain” and “London is her favourite city in the world”, the 27-year-old socialite was asked who the Prime Minister of the country was.

Rather than replying ‘Gordon Brown’, Paris said: “It’s Gordon. Gordon Ramsay?”

The star did correct herself later on, insisting she had only made the mistake as she had recently eaten at one of the famed chef’s restaurants.

However, later she slipped up again when she was asked about UK county Essex, to which she replied: “What’s that?”

In the show, 12 contestants battle to persuade Paris they should become her new friend.
The star has previously claimed she wants to find a pal from the country as she is bored of American women, claiming: “The girls in Los Angeles are such s***s.”

Paris recently hit out at critics who have branded her stupid, claiming she is actually highly intelligent.

She said: “I think a lot of people have seen me on ‘The Simple Life’ and think I’m a spoilt airhead. But I was playing a character.”

Is she stupid? Or is she playing a character? Either way it’s excellent promotion for her TV show tomorrow. We think she’s a genius!
