Paris Hilton in Dubai hotel spycam shocker

'Secret recording device' rattles bafflingly famous reason-vacuum

Jetsetting celebutard Paris Hilton is reportedly trembling behind a security ring of steel after a "secret recording device" was discovered in her deluxe Dubai hotel suite.

Hilton, as any self-respecting El Reg reader knows, is in the sun-kissed Arab emirate to film My New Best Friend Forever. According to the Daily Express, the Mother Teresa of Rwandan war children "flew into a rage" when bodyguards unearthed the hidden kit.

An inside source said: “It was some sort of transmitter by all accounts. We’re not sure what the device picked up or whom it was transmitting to. But it did leave Paris very jittery. Paris’s security has been increased and hotel staff are investigating how the device came to be in her room.”

The informant added: "Everyone she has come into contact with during her stay in Dubai has been fantastic and gracious. We’ve been told there are some quarters where there is anti-American feeling."

That some Arabs are not kindly disposed to Americans will doubtless come as a terrible shock to Hilton, who's gained international fame as a roving ambassador for all that's laudable in US society.

However, al-Qaeda will certainly gain considerable propaganda benefit from its illicit footage of our Paris lounging on an empress-sized bed watching naked slave girls feed honey-glazed figs to her chihuahua while panic-stricken lackeys attempt to get Cristiano Ronaldo on the phone. ®
