Hilton Moves to Hollywood Hills

7/22/2007 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Movin' on up ... to the Hollywood Hills!

Paris' lil' sis Nicky Hilton -- that other party-hopping heiress -- just dropped a load on a new home. The non-con Hilton ponied up a cool $3 million for her new pad. The new abode -- which measures up at around 4,000 square feet -- isn't considered excessively large compared to some of her compatriots' quarters, has an office-gym and 4-1/2 baths. The house features just three bedrooms, just enough for when sis Paris needs a place to crash after a long night out around town.

The designing Hilton -- who runs her own clothing line, Chick, for chic chicks -- kept it in the family, and had her uncle Mauricio Umansky help her with the sale, reports the L.A. Times.

$3 million doesn't buy a lot of house anymore, does it? This is actually the house formerly owned by cable giant Myron Kempelstein from what I can see.

# 19 you are stupid.
If you read the LA times... The newspaper mentioned her move in the real estate section. It wasn't headline news or anything..
Nicky does contribute to charities

Her primary activities involve modelling, personal appearances, and designing handbags, and these activities earn Nicky nearly $1,000,000 USD per year

More than 100 stores in Japan sell her handbags.

She graduated high school from the Convent of the Sacred Heart in NYC Upper East Side.
She attended college at the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons School of Design, but did not finish her fashion degree

Direct quotes by nicky from tv.com

Nicky: Paris is really young at heart - I'm the older one in the relationship. I'm always telling her not to do stuff. If she's wearing something really silly, I'm like, "Don't go out wearing that."

The girl has good sense....even greater since to get involved in hotels without her family.

From Hotel Chatter 7-7-2007:

We don't even know how to break this to you, especially on a Monday morning, but it looks like Nicky O Hotels ain't over yet.

A devoted HotelChatter tipster, AFdude, emailed us over the weekend to alert us to the new official Nicky Hilton website. Here you can find information about Nicky's clothing endeavors, boutiques, fan club and the dreaded Nicky-O Hotels.

Last we left Nicky O, the project was dead in the ground and Nicky's developer Robert Falor was in some serious doo-doo with the property, not to mention he has a lawsuit against Nicky. But so far, there's no real new news on Nicky O on Nicky's website, other than the condo-tel might rise again. Kinda like Voldemort.

We still doubt that Nicky O will ever open up anywhere but we guess she's just trying to save face and get some more publicity at the same time.

Nicky Hilton sued for breach of contract over 'Nicky O's Chicago' hotel project
CHICAGO (AP) — Feb. 2007

A Chicago development group is suing heiress Nicky Hilton for breach of contract over a delayed hotel renovation project just south of the city's downtown.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in federal court, Robert Falor Investments and Grand USA Hotel Supply & Restaurant allege Hilton hasn't kept up her end of an April 2006 agreement in which she promised to promote the redevelopment project known as Nicky O's Chicago, a Nicky Hilton Hotel.

Hilton also allegedly contracted out interior design work she was supposed to perform and tried to charge it back to the developer, the lawsuit alleges. The development group also claims Hilton misrepresented that she and her associates had experience in hotel design.

"Wonky" eyed Paris and "special" Nicky are the very reason there are abortions.

That's twice as much as the Spanish-styled and architecturally inspired abode that I've had my eyes on in the Hollywood Hills East section. Complete with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and even better, a sweet view of the city, on Holly Monty Dr. I'm sure she'll like it regardless and nonetheless.

Court TV
LOS ANGELES — Nicky O, no he didn't!

Heiress Nicky Hilton is suing a man she once considered going into the hotel business with after discovering he tried to trademark her name for his own use.

Hilton, sister to Paris, is planning to open a chain of designer "Nicky O" boutique hotels next year, and claims that Lake Tahoe businessman Eneliko Smith filed a fraudulent trademark application for the name "Nicky O," according to the suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Hilton began developing her business plan for "Nicky O" hotels in November 2004, according to the suit. The O is for Olivia, her middle name.

Hilton is seeking a permanent injunction, barring Smith from using her name. She is also seeking attorney's fees and damages.

Hilton's suit says she was in talks with Smith in April 2005 about managing one of her hotels after he "held himself out as an experienced operator and marketer of boutique hotels." No agreement was reached and talks ended by late 2005.

In mid-2006, Hilton says she discovered that Smith "secretly and fraudulently filed an Intent to Use application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the name 'Nicky O' for 'resort and lodging services.'"

The application, attached to Hilton's suit, was filed July 22, 2005.

Hilton claims that, when she demanded Smith withdraw his application, he "not only refused, but admitted in writing that he was 'actively seeking alternative business partners' with whom to exploit [Hilton's] name without her permission."

Smith denies hearing any objections from Hilton.


Eneliko Smith says he worked with Nicky Hilton in good faith.
"Two years ago, Nick and I collaborated on a hotel. We worked in good faith. I gave her the concept, the business model and everything. She was fully aware that I trademarked this name. Then I never heard from her," Smith told CourtTVnews.com.

Smith, who goes by "Liko," is the managing owner of The Block in Big Bear and Lake Tahoe, hotels themed after celebrity snowboarders. He is currently working on a hotel in Los Angeles for world-famous poker player Johnny Chan.

As for Nicky O, Smith says, that name was his idea and he would be happy to sell it to Hilton.

"This is kind of annoying to me why she would play it out in the courts," Smith says. "Instead of just giving me a call."

The first "Nicky O" condominium hotel is slated to open early next year in Miami's South Beach.

According to the hotel's Web site, the staff will be "charming and sexy," the lobby will be misted with the scent of gardenias, the pool will be serviced by "tanning butlers," and guests will find mini cupcakes, not chocolates, on their pillows.

Hilton, 23, is a model, designer of handbags, and has her own clothing line, "Chick."

Seems that nicky will be involved in court cases for a while.
She can't build a hotel with someone else owning the trademark to her name.
It sounds like a real mess...

To #28 Neutral facts

That trademark name filed by Smith was abandoned. Nicky Hilton filed her own application via her atttorneys for that trademark in June of 2006, and it is still a live application. Sorry, but we don't understand what your point is here.
