Paris' Buddy -- Very Bubbly

6/26/2007 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ spotted Paris Hilton hanger-on, the very cheerful Caroline D'Amore -- driving away from Joseph's last night.

The sometimes model/DJ was spotted making an unsteady walk to her car (high heels?), rambling as she screamed for her "gay boyfriend," then was gigglingly ecstatic about Paris being released from jail.

Clearly, Paris is her inspiration. Caution advised.
