A source confirms for me, Nom Clarke’s report that Paris Hilton has been banned from Wynn and Encore not just to host but to even be a guest. Las Vegas is a don’t ask don’t tell town, but that is over at the point the police are catching a bag of cocaine falling out of your purse in a resort.
Hilton probably will not be banned from other casinos. Though as of right now, I am guessing that she will no longer be able to get a paid hosting gig in Vegas. Also, the days of her purse not being checked like every other guest at Vegas nightclubs are over.
All of this could change the moment she goes in for a ritual trip to rehab. Vegas doesn’t really want to lose Paris Hilton. She draws people who pay nightclubs a lot of money. Drugs have caused the problem and the casinos will respond with tough love because gaming regulators are watching. But don’t think Vegas is rid of Paris Hilton. The truth: if Hilton makes a short trip to rehab, there won’t be a resort on the Strip unwilling to give her a second chance. We are a bandwagon town and for a brief moment Paris Hilton has been forced off the wagon. (photo: Sarah Gerke)
