Radio host Catherwood ‘Dancing’ into sunset

Radio host Mike Catherwood is the first celebrity voted off the new season of “Dancing With the Stars,” according to the Associated Press.

Mr. Catherwood drew the lowest score when the audience vote was combined with the judges’ tally on the hit ABC series.

His exit Tuesday leaves 10 contestants, including high-scoring Ralph Macchio of “Karate Kid” fame. Others in the field are Kirstie Alley, talk-show host Wendy Williams, actress Chelsea Kane, singer Romeo, reality star Kendra Wilkinson, model Petra Nemcova and athletes Sugar Ray Leonard, Hines Ward and Chris Jericho.

Paris Hilton insists she is ‘the original’

Paris Hilton, the woman who perfected the art of being famous for being famous, says she has met all of her professional goals, Associated Press reports.

The heiress-turned-TV star, who was in Mexico Tuesday to promote a new line of shoes, says she doesn’t fear being overshadowed by Kim Kardashian or any other reality-show rival with her own fragrance, B-movies, sex tape and autobiography, all by age 30.

“There’s so many people out there who try to imitate what I do, but I am the original,” Miss Hilton said in an interview with the Associated Press. “There is nothing like me.”

The socialite, who started her career as a model and has tried her hand in movies, fashion and singing, is shooting her latest reality TV show, “The World According to Paris,” which will debut this spring on the Oxygen cable channel.

“The show’s everything about my life, showing the businesswoman,” Miss Hilton said.

She angrily dismissed questions about whether her life is superficial.

“I thought we were talking about the shoes,” she said.

Her shoe collection is the latest addition to a lucrative empire that lends her name to 17 lines of products from handbags and fragrances to clothing.

“I have done everything that I wanted to do, and I feel very blessed that I have been very successful on every area,” Miss Hilton said. “So it’s very exciting. There is nothing else to do.”
