Paris' spokesman, Elliot Mintz, revealed: "Paris does not wear fur, nor will she wear fur described as artificial now she knows it came off the backs of animals. She is grateful to Heather for educating us on this terrible subject."
Paris isn't the only celebrity joining the anti-fur brigade.
Pamela Anderson is planning to strip naked in a shop window - as part of a protest against the trade.
The former 'Baywatch' actress is to pose nude in the window of fashion designer Stella McCartney's London clothes shop for PETA.
Pamela, renowned for her work with the group, and Stella, the step-daughter of Heather, are both hopeful the stunt will draw attention to PETA's campaign to ban the use of fur in fashion.
Meanwhile, "Stars Are Blind," the debut single from heiress, actress, and newly minted pop star Paris Hilton continues to burn up at radio and online. After just three weeks, the reggae-tinged track is being played at more than 125 pop stations across the country and is the Number One most requested song at Los Angeles' KIIS FM and New York's influential Z100. The response in Europe has been huge as well, with significant radio airplay in Australia, Canada, and Italy.
"Stars Are Blind" is also the Number One most digitally downloaded song at Yahoo! Music this week and the Number Six most downloaded track on Apple's iTunes music store. In addition, the video, which premiered on June 6th on MTV.com, is driving millions of people online to view it at MTV.com, YouTube (where it has received more than one and a half million plays), and Yahoo! Music, where it is currently the Number Two most viewed artist clip. The video, which features Hilton frolicking on a Malibu beach, was shot by noted director Chris Applebaum, who also lensed Rihanna's "S.O.S." and Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten."
And finally a Hilton Hotel employee was left red-faced after refusing heiress Paris Hilton a discount on a room reports The Sun UK.
The socialite - great-granddaughter of the hotel chain's founder - agreed to take part in a radio show wind-up by phoning the Glasgow Hilton to reserve a room.
Asking if she could have a discount on her room rate, The Simple Life star was told by the reservations clerk he'd given her the best rate available.
The prank was aired on the Real Radio Breakfast Show this morning..
