Biography

He may have been born Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr., but his name on the streets is Perez Hilton, blogger extraordinaire. The founder of PageSixSixSix.com, now perezhilton.com, rose to minor infamy for his up-to-the-minute posts on the latest celebrity happenings and mishappenings (usually with his own offensive, albeit tongue-in-cheek doodles superimposed onto tabloid photographs of the subject du jour). Hilton has befriended many of the celebrities he's lampooned, including Kathy Griffin and possibly even his namesake, Paris Hilton, and was the star of his own reality show, What Perez Sez. In a somewhat bizarre case of life imitating art, Hilton's notoriety left him victim to the paparazzi's lens on more than one occasion. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
