Paris Hilton misses opening of new 'Club Paris' nightclub
UPI News Service, 12/31/2004
Patrons of an Orlando, Fla., club who had come expecting to see Paris Hilton got only regrets when it turned out she had missed her flight from Switzerland.
Club Paris owner Fred Khalilian, who had promised that the hotel heiress and entertainer would personally unveil the new nightspot, had to give the bad news to more than 200 VIP partygoers, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.
Instead Nicky Hilton substituted for her sister.
"She's so upset that she isn't here," Nicky Hilton told the crowd of Orlando politicians, lawyers and assorted hipsters.
Celebrity hounds had to settle for Catherine Bach, the original Daisy Duke from the Dukes of Hazzard TV show and boy band impresario Lou Pearlman.
