(Newser) – Assistants to hold her umbrella and apply her lip gloss; three outfit changes a day; two BlackBerrys. Such is the life of Paris Hilton, the Mirror reports. Laura Meakin, who appeared on reality show Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend, dished on what it’s really like to spend so much time with the socialite. Most importantly? “That is honestly how she talks. Everything has to be ‘hot.’”

“She has a team of people constantly preening her to perfection,” but Paris can also “behave just like an ordinary girl.” One night, “one of the girls said she’d forgotten her deodorant. Paris simply turned round and told her she could borrow hers.”
