Black Sheep? Paris' Cousin Popped for DUI

7/12/2007 7:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The alcohol-impaired apple doesn't fall far from the Hilton family tree.

TMZ has learned that Brooke Ashley Brinson, a cousin of Paris Hilton, was popped late last year for DUI and -- like cousin, like cousin -- also had issues with her driver's license. Unlike Paris, however, whose blood alcohol level was just at the .08 that constitutes a DUI in California, Brinson blew at least a 0.15 -- which led to another charge of DUI. What's more, she was just 20 years old.

Paris will probably want to avoid using Brooke as a wheelwoman anytime soon -- Brookie was driving a Benz registered to Paris that allegedly caused a four-car collision on the freeway.

Brooke will be back in court on August 3.

This says that the alcoholic gene does not come from the Hilton side of the family. That's something the hardworking Hiltons has to thank for.

Why don't they just sue Monty Brinson and his ex - her parents? Or, oh, an idea, sue the 20 yr-old.

Conrad Nicky Hilton Jr. was a certified drunk........ He died at 42.
This man was a notorious drinker..
Maybe both sides of the family enjoy the bottle.... Nothing wrong with that.
As long as you are not driving...

I guess that qualifies her for the Millionaire Interview Club. A few days in jail, 15 minutes on Larry King and a check for 1 Million from NBC ! Just wish I was in the family tree ! Would start drinking right now !

WHO IS BROOKE BRINSON?

Brooke is the oldest child of .... Kim Richards.

The same Kim Richards who was one of the top child stars of the 1970's. And yes, Paris' aunt. Kim and Paris' mom Kathy are sisters.

Brooke has 1 younger 1/2 brother (Chad) and 2 younger 1/2 sisters (Whitney and Kimberly).

Paris' other aunt (Kyle) has 3 daughters of her own.

Wait for the other 5 female cousins to emerge.

Paris didn't get any money.. I can't blame her for trying..
Poor paris is out there hustling to make a living... doing parties and everything to keep her lifestyle..
She isn't a heiress.. I read they are cash poor. That is why paris has to stay ahead of her game.. Maybe, that is why she had the min. auto insurance on the car her cousin was driving. No one can support a whole family, including cousins...

The latest suit comes just days after Hilton was videotaped reversing into a parked car and then driving off without leaving her contact details, a violation of California law. (old news)

Paris left her contact information with the ticket booth employee. There is enough negative info about her without you having to make up stories.

Also, to all the people calling the Richards side of the family trash, they work. My understanding of white trash is lazy people that don't work. Which would be more in line with the last 2 or 3 generations of Hiltons.

Why I am commenting on this I do not know.

did you know that Paris Hilton is....
--- a fifth cousin 4 times removed from Jesse and Frank James, the notorious armed bank and stage robbers

--- a sixth cousin 6 times removed from Edward "Ned" Kelly, reportedly "the most famous Australian cattle rustler and bank robber of the 19th century"

--- a seventh cousin 4 times removed from John Wesley Hardin, an outlaw and gunfighter in Texas. He was reported to be "the meanest man alive, once killing a man just for snoring."

--- a sixth cousin 7 times removed from Tom "Black Jack" Ketchum, mainly a train robber and member of the infamous "Hole-In-The-Wall" Gang

Well, now I must admit, not ALL of Paris' cousins are stage coach chasers, cow wranglers and desperados. She is also distantly related to several former United States presidents and their wives, famous writers, poets, activists and the like. But don't you agree it is much more fun to rattle those skeletons that are hanging in her closet next to the designer gowns?

She also shares a distant cousinship with Katharine Hepburn (American actress), Eugene Delacroix (French artist), Jane Austen (English author), and Nathaniel Hawthorne (American author).

I think that Mae West, Paris Hilton's 8th cousin 3 times removed, would have given her the following sound advice for the future: "A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up."


PS: The family relationships reported above are true, as abstracted from Ancestry.com
