Paris Hilton gets a D-minus in Social Studies
The one thing you can say about Paris Hilton – she's consistent. If she can blow it – she will.
And if she can patronize her hosts at the same time, that's 'ok' for a girl tirelessly brushing up her reputation as the ultimate in dumb blondes.
The heiress, jailbird, porn video star, TV presenter, and socialite's latest 'Doh!' moment came on a whirlwind tour of Africa with beau Benji Madden and his band Good Charlotte.
Bad – she gushed to waiting pressmen: "I love Africa in general - South Africa and West Africa, they are both great countries."
As most 11th graders could tell her, South Africa IS a country. West Africa is not.
West Africa is a 3 billion square mile area made up of 16 countries - Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Cape Verde, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.
Fortunately as the band played at My Coke Fest 2008, she was able to overcome any suggestions of her being a lightweight by visiting a local school in Johannesburg and handing out much needed photos of herself in a white bikini.
Then she was guest of honor at a VIP party she arranged to honor… Paris Hilton.
Next she is visiting Germany, Turkey, and Hungary and the Czech Republic – wherever they are.
