Paris Hilton

Tries Convincing Judge

Lingerie is Important to Me!

Paris Hilton is tied up in court today -- because she wants to show a New York judge she takes her bitter legal battle with an Italian lingerie company super seriously.

If you recall ... Hilton and Le Bonitas -- an Italian lingerie company -- are embroiled in a lawsuit over a product deal gone bad. Hilton signed a 5-year deal  to create a line of lingerie, pj's and swimwear with the company, but the project fizzled ... and now both sides are suing each other.

Hilton showed up to New York federal court today -- where lawyers are arguing key issues -- and sources close to Paris tell us, she showed up because she wants the court to know how important this case is to her and her brand.

Hilton is suing for more than $1.5 million -- the amount she was supposed to snag in royalties -- and Le Bonitas is suing for $200K plus.

12:55 PM PDT -- The judge just sent both sides home empty-handed -- refusing to rule in either's favor, urging Paris and Le Bonitas to settle the case out of court instead. If they can't, they'll have to present their case to a jury later this year.

Paris, if you want to be popular again, you need to hang out with Kim Kardashian. She can spare some for you. Kim is so popular and famous, she has no worries about sharing any with you!

If given the choice of wild night with most any unmarried woman in America. I'd still rather wake up from a blackout drunk with a hilton sister.

Paris should hook up with a home garden company. Her feet are freaking huge and you could buy Paris Hilton shoes and grow a garden of tomatoes in them at the same time!! Maybe ***** Sportswear can combo her shoes as canoe! She is attention starved right now so any old news item about her is oxygen to her blood!!

35 comments, and you're still publishing this as news TMZ? Sh*t, how low is your readership threshold? WAY lower than anyone thought!! Paris Hilton hasn't been news in years ... no-one cares, your own stats show it, why bother? Hiltons paying you and dropping you "scoops"? Must be, why else bother?
