Paris Hilton: I'm not your typical heiress

Editor's Note: Paris Hilton recently sat down with Piers Morgan for an emotional, tell-all interview. Tune in to hear from the heiress and her mom Kathy on "Piers Morgan Tonight" at 9 p.m ET.

Paris Hilton may be on her third reality show with Oxygen’s “The World According to Paris,” but the 30-year-old says that viewers will actually see the real her with this one.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times about her former reality program "The Simple Life," Hilton says producers told her “it was supposed to be 'Green Acres' meets 'Clueless.' So that's what I gave them. It was fun. But it gave the world this perception of me. People assume that's who I am."

She’s hoping that her Oxygen show will paint a more authentic picture.

Judy Garland concert headed for theaters

Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers have all seen their tours get transferred to the big screen, and now an unlikely star is getting the concert-film treatment: late Hollywood legend Judy Garland.

According to the L.A. Times, Garland's historic 1961 Carnegie Hall concert will be turned into a documentary courtesy of filmmakers Steven Lippman, Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein. Though Garland's comeback performance earned critical raves, countless standing ovations, and spawned a chart-topping double album, no footage exists of the actual event.

"The concert is a cultural touchstone, something I remember vividly as a kid," Friedman tells the L.A. Times. "It's a magical moment in theatrical history. And yet there's almost no record of it."

'The Hobbit' films get release dates

Break out the calendar: Peter Jackson's two “Hobbit” films now have release dates – and official titles.

The first, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” will arrive in theaters on December 14, 2012, according to Variety. The second half of the two-part adaptation is called “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” and will bow a year later nearly to the date on December 13, 2013.

That’s not the only “Hobbit” related news, however. Last week it was announced that Orlando Bloom is returning to Middle Earth as the elf Legolas in Jackson's films, even though the character doesn't appear in J.R.R. Tolkien's original story.

Olsen twins explain their 'homeless chic' style

Before becoming fashion-world darlings with their string of successful clothing lines, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were raising eyebrows with their street style.

As New York University students in 2004, the duo defined "homeless chic," draping themselves in layers of clothing, including shawls, oversize shirts, long skirts, and tattered tights. Today, the twins insist they weren't trying to be trendy.

"[It was] us waking up, going to school, and not wanting anyone to take our picture. Kind of a piece of protection," Ashley tells Style.com of their quirky ensembles.

Ashton Kutcher partners with travel site Airbnb

Ashton Kutcher, travel agent? Well, sort of. The model turned actor has just become an investor in Airbnb, a start-up that helps budget-conscious travelers find lodging anywhere from an apartment to a houseboat to a castle, according to the L.A. Times.

"For many, Ashton Kutcher is an actor and heart throb, but in the tech scene he's made his mark as a branding and new media expert with an eye for great ideas and a fearless approach to new markets," Airbnb said in a blog post. "To the Airbnb team, he is more than an icon—he is now our ally and trusted advisor."

Kutcher is already an investor in Skype, Foursquare, the Path photo-sharing app and the iPad news-reading app Flipboard. According to the New York Times, he should have no trouble raising awareness of Airbnb among his 6.8 million Twitter followers and 9.7 million Facebook fans.
