SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Paris Hilton returned to Salt Lake City Tuesday for a ceremonial bill signing for a law that regulates treatment centers for troubled teens in Utah.

The legislation for facilities that treat teens with behavioral and mental health issues gained final approval in the Legislature in early March, about a month after Hilton gave emotional testimony in support of the bill. Gov. Spencer Cox signed the bill last month but held a ceremonial signing with Hilton on Tuesday.

The new law will require more government oversight of youth residential treatment centers and documentation for when they use restraints. It will also prohibit treatment centers from using sedation or mechanical restraints without prior authorization.

Hilton testified she was abused mentally and physically at a Utah boarding school, where she said staff members would beat her, force her to take unknown pills, watch her shower and send her to solitary confinement without clothes as punishment.

The socialite and reality TV star also spoke about the abuse in a documentary titled “This is Paris” that was released this fall.

Since the documentary was released, other celebrities have spoken out about their experiences at the school or others like it, including Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson and tattoo artist Kat Von D.

Paris Hilton is the May cover

Paris Hilton – It girl, mogul and internet obsession – is the May cover, wearing pink gingham pyjamas while posing with three of her seven adorable dogs. Shot at her home in Beverly Hills, the tongue-in-chic pictures are pure Paris: from standing next to her baby pink Bentley to reading a book about herself while dipping her toes into a swimming pool.

Kinvara Balfour met the star at her mansion in a gated community of LA, where the two discussed everything from Hilton’s plans to become a mother one day (the baby name has already been decided – London – because ‘London is my favourite city in the world’) to what the last 12 months has taught her.

Social media lit up in February with pictures of Paris’s engagement, after her venture capitalist boyfriend Carter Reum proposed to her shortly before her 40th birthday, using a ring custom-made by Jean Dousset, the great-great-grandson of Louis-François Cartier, thought to be worth £1 million.

Speaking of that milestone birthday, Hilton shares the secrets to her enviable glow, explaining it’s all natural, despite living in plastic surgery obsessed Hollywood: ‘I have never done a filler, I have never done Botox, I have never put a needle in my face. I am 100 per cent natural. I have also stayed out of the sun my entire life.’

Lockdown hasn’t slowed Paris down, instead her career is going from strength to strength, as showcased by those incredible Mert and Marcus images of her in the new Lanvin campaign which broke the internet earlier this month. As she explains: ‘I don’t stop. I’m like a machine. I am always working,’ she insists. ‘Now I have even more projects than ever. And being with [Carter], he’s so business-minded, I am so inspired by being with him every day.’

She acknowledges the importance of her fans to her success, too, explaining how special her relationship is with them: ‘I am so close with my fans,’ she says. ‘I have them on WhatsApp with me, I invite them to stay with me, I fly them out to certain things. I am like their big sister. We do these huge Zoom calls where we have hundreds of them on there and we all get together.’

Paris Hilton is getting into business with Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, signing an exclusive two-year overall deal with the studio. Under the pact, Hilton will develop, executive produce and star in original unscripted television programming on behalf of the studio. Veteran media executive Bruce Gersh will executive produce all projects alongside Hilton under their new production banner Slivington Manor Entertainment, which will develop long-form content for television, streaming services, and emerging platforms. A production company executive will be added to oversee creative strategy and development. Hilton told Deadline last year at the Winter TCA press tour that she was considering launching her own television production company, and that has now become a reality.

The deal reunites former The Simple Life star Hilton with Mike Darnell, President of Warner Bros. Unscripted Television. Darnell worked with Hilton when he was president of Alternative Entertainment at Fox, which aired The Simple Life. The reality series followed wealthy socialites Hilton and Nicole Ritchie as they struggled to do manual, low-paying jobs such as cleaning rooms, farm work, serving meals in fast-food restaurants, and working as camp counselors. The show aired on Fox for three seasons and moved to E! for its final two seasons.

“Launching Slivington Manor Entertainment is a dream come true and I am so excited to continue connecting with my fans across the globe both in front of the camera and as a producer,” said Hilton. “I am looking forward to working with the incredible Warner Bros. team to create new thought provoking and inspirational long-form content and am beyond thrilled to reunite with Mike Darnell.”

“I’ve known Paris since the The Simple Life brought us together almost 20 years ago. She has always been an incredible talent and entrepreneur,” said Darnell. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with her again and can’t wait for the world to watch the next chapter of her life.”

Since starring in The Simple Life, Hilton has built a global empire as an influencer, DJ, designer, recording artist, philanthropist, host, actress, model and New York Times best-selling author. In 2006, she created Paris Hilton Entertainment, a multi-billion-dollar company consisting of 45 branded stores, 19 product lines and 27 fragrances, which have surpassed over $4 billion in revenue. Hilton debuted This Is Paris, her critically acclaimed YouTube Originals documentary on her life, which has garnered nearly 20 million views to date.

Hilton has used her voice and dedicated her platform and resources to supporting Breaking Code Silence, the organization created to affect change in the industry, and eradicate the abuse of children in systemically abusive institutions. Hilton recently partnered with iHeartRadio to launch her This is Paris podcast and will continue to expand podcast production through her company London Audio. As an investor, she is committed to supporting and investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs positively impacting the world at companies such as Daily Harvest, Good Catch, Zen Water, Podz, among others.]

Led by Darnell, Warner Bros. Unscripted Television is behind numerous blockbuster franchises including the long-running The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise; multiple Emmy-winning The Ellen DeGeneres Show and the primetime hit Ellen’s Game of Games; the multi-Emmy-winning The Voice; the Fox hit The Masked Dancer; the Emmy-winning Who Do You Think You Are? returning to NBC; The Real Housewives of New York; The Bradshaw Bunch; Extra; and The Real; as well as the Greg Berlanti produced signature documentaries Helter Skelter for Epix and Equal for HBO Max, among others. The unscripted unit also recently announced The Wheel, BBC’s number 1 game show launch in over a decade, coming to NBC; the upcoming hybrid alternative-scripted series True Story with Ed Helms and Randall Park; Ellen’s Next Great Designer for HBO Max; the Ava DuVernay produced Home Sweet Home coming to NBC; and the anticipated Friends reunion coming to HBO Max.
