So where’s Paris Hilton been lately? Oh, you know, gambling in Vegas, shopping around for a Malibu beach house, promoting her mom’s new fashion collection—oh, and striking a pose while her ski-slope injured boy toy serves as her prop.
“Just got out of the hospital with River Viiperi,” she Tweeted from Lake Tahoe February 18, her 32nd birthday, about her 21-year-old Spanish model boyfriend, as reported by Us Weekly. “He was doing a high jump while skiing & the ski sliced in to his leg! 19 stitches! Oww!”
Then, just to make sure her followers understood the gravity of the sitch, the party-happy heiress posted a photo of herself (above) posing and pouting, her amber ski goggles perched on her head below the fur-trimmed hood of her canary-yellow ski jacket. Viiperi lay in the background, laying in a stretcher in the snow, waiting to be shuttled off to the hospital. She pulled the same puss in another photo that Viiperi posted, posing next to him in the hospital.
“Such a scary day on the slopes today,” she wrote on her Pheed. “After seeing the gash on River Viiperi’s leg, I almost passed out. I have never seen a cut that deep in my life. He is so brave, I can’t even imagine the pain he went through today.”
Her young love didn’t seem to feel exploited, though. He posted his own gruesome photos of the leg gash, and Tweeted, “Thank you for being there for me my Love, your the best Girlfriend in the world!! I'm so lucky to have you!”
