$2 Million Paris Hilton Heist: I Moved into a Gated Community to Get Away from the Paparazzi, She Told BlogTalkRadio

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2008 (BlogTalkRadio) – Burglars broke into Paris Hilton’s home today, making off with an estimated $2 million worth of jewelry and other valuables.

$2 million poorer.

Paris: It was the flashbulbs she feared.

The hotel heiress had just recently moved into the Hollywood Hills abode.

Ironically, however, it wasn’t to get away from robbers – it was to flee photographers.

In a Nov. 29 interview on BlogTalkRadio’s World Talk Live! Paris, 27, told host Brett Cohen exclusively that she’d taken a hard line against the prying eyes of ever-present paparazzi.

“They follow me all day long. But I moved into a gated community now,” she said.

“Before, they would literally be running up my driveway and taking pictures through my windows – could see everything in my house.

“Now I live in a gated community, so they usually just fly over with helicopters!”
