Could it be? Did Paris really send Stephen packing on tonight's BFF? Nooooooo!!! Say it ain't so! Unfortch, we can't do that ... and neither can Stephen. But, he CAN tell you how much he loves and respects Paris and why he will forever remain friends with the rest of the gals. Check out his note below!
Being selected for Paris Hilton's My New BFF was a once in a lifetime dream come true. When I went in for an audition months ago, I NEVER in a million years would have thought things would turn out this way. I am so blessed to have made it as far as I did and to have formed a REAL friendship with Paris.
Despite what anyone has to say about her, Paris is the sweetest person ever and truly an ICON of our time. Paris has great friends, an amazing family, fame and fortune, and yet she is the most humble, down-to-earth person I have ever met. People try to argue that it's fake ... IT's NOT! Paris puts EVERYONE else ahead of her. I was lucky enough to share my 24th birthday with her and the BFFs while filming the show, and Paris went out of her way to make sure I had the best day ever. Plus, after meeting my family, she sent me home with a box of perfumes and purses for my sisters and Mom. THAT is a thoughtful, generous person right there.
I know a lot of people were rooting for me, and that touches my heart. I appreciate the love and support more than you know. Every five minutes I'd be grabbing one of my parents, siblings or friends and reading them your sweet comments. They did not go unnoticed, I promise!
It was so sad to leave, but I will always respect Paris' decisions. I went into this show as myself to see if I was what she was looking for in a best friend. I figured that if not, it was okay because I truly wanted HER to find the PERFECT BFF. It's not about the contestants getting what they want. It's about Paris ... and I always understood that.
People rant and say this is just a TV show and she doesn't really want friends and that it's all about the money and fame. It really isn't. She keeps in touch with sooo many of us. The girls and I feel so lucky to get random sweet messages from Paris simply saying "Thinking of you. Love you." That's REAL. A celebrity who is as busy as her and leads such an in-demand lifestyle doesn't have time to text tons of random people she doesn't like. By her doing this, it truly shows me and some of the other contestants that she does love us, she does want us as her friends.
I will always love Paris. I will always be there for her and do anything I can for her. She will always have my support, and I will always have her back through ANYTHING. Thanks to Paris, I had the time of my life, made so many great lifelong friends and have so many wonderful memories that I will never forget.
Now to my BFF girls ... I dont want to focus on people who are proud they cussed out Paris or were rude to anyone else. Instead, I want to mention some positive, amazingly sweet girls.
Tiniecia: She will be my friend for the rest of my life. I will never let go of the bond we have and will respect and love her forever. She leaves me speechless and in awe of her. Such a powerful, strong, sweet and caring friend. Tiniecia and Paris are by far the greatest friends I made in 2009. T, I miss rubbing Cocoa Butter on your back before bed, baby!
Amanda: One of the few girls that I won't fall out of touch with, we always try to have our weekly phone gossip chats. She is so protective and caring of the people she loves. She always says "Love you babe" at the end of every conversation and would have your back if ANYONE ever tried messing with you.
Elena: My little sister, my angel and one of the first BFF contestants I met. The first thing I thought when I saw her was, "OMG she's freakin' hot! I get to be friends with her?! I'm so excited!" She could always make me laugh (and also made the strongest coffee known to man). Love her!
Kristen: I was so intimidated by her at the beginning. She was also one of the first girls I met, and when she found out I was the only boy on the show, she grabbed my arm and said, "Just so you know, I'm protective over my friends" ... like she didn't wanna share me. It was sooo sweet!
Monica: She was the girl that grabbed me after the stripper pole incident and said to me, "Those guys are assholes, everything will be okay." I'm her little Johnny Bravo, and she always puts a smile on my face.
Stefanie: Probably the most beautiful person I have ever met. When she talks, you kind of go into a daze looking at how stunning she is. She was a consistent sweetheart to me, and I love her to death!
Arika, Kaitlin, and Nicole: You girls are my Sisters, and I love that we live close to each other. I can only imagine the adventures we have ahead of us. I can't wait!
Girls ... I miss pillow talk before bed, singing songs together in the cars, hugging one another when you guys missed your boyfriends, protecting one another, using whipped cream as coffee creamer, laughing at Tiniecia's bedtime stories, getting ready together, running through the house laughing, eating 24-7, playing truth or dare in the living room, running through the halls at 12am eavesdropping on people, inviting Kaitlin to sleep over in the master bedroom ... then locking her out. (Ha Ha love you Kaitlin). You girls make me SO extremely happy!
I love everyone involved with BFF -- and I especially love you, Paris ... forever!
