Paris Hilton has reportedly "shocked" producers on the set of Will Ferrell's latest adlib fest, The Other Guys (some police-action comedy, or other), which is currently shooting in New York.

A source said: "Paris has a cameo role in the movie, where she plays herself. It is all being kept very hush-hush. But the producers were shocked when her team handed them a three-page list of demands - including live lobsters to be prepared fresh when she's ready to eat and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka - all for just one day on the set. All celebrities are typically offered riders, but it seemed excessive for just one day's work playing herself. She was due to fly to New York to film in secret last week."

When Paris isn't getting her new pet lobsters tanked up (apologies) on Grey Goose, while playing a directionless prostitute in the latest reincarnation of Police Academy, she's bursting forth from birthday cakes.

According to The New York Post, Paris "surprised boyfriend Doug Reinhardt by popping out of a cake in a hot pink costume and black diamond mask at his birthday party Saturday at her Beverly Hills mansion. 'Paris went all out for her man's birthday. No expense was spared... He had no idea about the party and was so happy'." Of course he was, how else was he going to afford a party, and an oversized novelty cake containing an ill-coordinated dancing girl who favours shoving dollar bills into his underwear instead of t'other way round?

When Paris isn't liberating lobsters or abusing confectionary, she's downsizing her neck on red carpets across L.A. Seriously, I don't recall her neck being related to that of Hilary Duff / Dumpy McStump before? Is this a misguided attempt at couture posing? Sorry, missus, I wouldn't be the biggest fan of Blah's Next Top Model (too much squealing. Hurts the ears. Gives mummy migrane) but even I know you should never lose your neck in a shoot, dahlink. I don't get it, Nicky has a neck... For someone who's built a career on neck alone, Paris should really be exhibiting more of it... It's a mystery.
