Paris heats up Maui
WAILEA, Maui » Los Angeles socialite and reality TV star Paris Hilton has been seen dining and shopping on Maui, days after being released from jail for a probation violation stemming from an alcohol-related reckless-driving conviction in California.
Hilton was wearing a large hat with sunglasses and a sheer white sundress over a bikini, said Sean Goldberg, who sat next to her at a pool restaurant at the Grand Wailea Resort.
Goldberg and his two other 16-year-old friends, Ian Markell and Kyle Klein, all from Los Angeles, said they saw her at lunchtime Saturday and purposefully sat at the table next to her near the pool.
"She looked hot," Klein said.
