“I’ve never felt so happy and in love,” she declared in a post on her MySpace Celebrity blog Tuesday. “He’s such an amazing guy and life has never been better.”

For the past month the hotel heiress, 27, has been touring – hitting Europe and Africa – with Madden and his band, Good Charlotte.

“It’s so much fun going to their shows every night, I now know every song by heart,” Hilton wrote. “All the guys in the band are so cool and sweet and it’s been such an amazing and memorable experience.”

To fully express her joy, the former Simple Life star relies heavily on her favorite punctuation mark: the exclamation point.

• “I love Good Charlotte, they rock!!”

• “I cannot wait to start shooting [my new reality show]!! It’s going to be a blast!!”

Paris Hilton Hosts a Party in Johannesburg|Celebrity News

It didn’t take long for Paris Hilton to organize a VIP party for herself in Johannesburg this weekend hot on the heels of her goodwill school tour earlier in the week.

On Friday night, Hilton was greeted by a throng of fans at the party, which had been organized with barley 24 hours notice, and gamely posed for pictures.

Meanwhile, Benji Madden, who had performed earlier to wild applause at the My Coke Fest 2008 with his band Good Charlotte, let his girl have the spotlight. At the party, he walked by the crowd virtually unnoticed.

Inside, the couple were affectionate as they hung out in the VIP section. Paris welcomed her fans from a distance via a microphone, declaring that she “loved South Africa, the accent and everyone.”

Whenever Hilton leaned over the balcony of the VIP area, she waved and the crowd went hysterical every time, according to an observer.

The party quickly died down after the hostess departed close to 2.30 am.

Paris Hilton, Benji Madden Taking Romance on Tour|Celebrity News

Paris Hilton says she’s ready to hit the road with Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden, her boyfriend of a month and a half, when his band kicks off an international tour next week.

“We’re actually leaving in a couple days for South Africa, so I’ll be with him,” Hilton told people at the launch party Friday for Madden’s new DCMA Collective store in Los Angeles.

But is the heiress really ready for life on a tour bus? “I’m just happy to be together, so no matter where we are, we’ll have a great time,” she says. After shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Good Charlotte heads to Europe and the U.K. before hitting the road in North America this summer in support of their album Good Morning Revival.

At the party, “Madden” said his favorite part of the clothing line he runs with twin brother Joel is the collaborative T-shirts they’ve done with celebrities including artist Shepherd Fairy, Oscar-winning rap group Three 6 Mafia, and musician Chris Robinson. Asked if he’d consider collaborating with Hilton, Madden tells people: “I’d do anything she wanted. I’m a really easy guy to read. Everyone can tell I’m really happy. She’s the most supportive [girlfriend], even as a friend, so supportive of everything I’m doing. And I try to be the same way for her.”

The couple wore their favorite matching initial rings from Beverly Hills jeweler XIV Karats at the bash.

Hilton, in turn, gave props to Madden, saying she’s a cooler big sister nowadays, thanks to her beau. “My little brother Conrad – he’s 14 – loves the line as well,” she says. “He skateboards. Benji said he’s going to bring him here to go skateboarding [at the store’s indoor ramp]. Benji brought up a huge box of DCMA stuff for both boys. They love it.”

Even Hilton’s sister Nicky agreed: “He’s very, very nice.” Source

Nicky Hilton Addresses Weight – and Paris’s New Man

Nicky Hilton debuted her latest fashion line Tuesday night – but chatter about her weight and her sister’s love life took center stage.

Hilton, who has been dogged by Internet speculation about recent weight loss, hit back at the reports. “There’s no truth to any starvation, eating disorders, rumors,” she told people Tuesday at her Nicholai fashion show, part of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in L.A.

“I think the press has been printing a lot of pictures of me from unflattering angles,” added the 24-year-old designer. “My friends see the pictures and they’re like ‘Oh my god are you okay?’ And then they see me, and they’re like ‘Oh … ‘ It’s really not that interesting or true.”

Hilton also addressed another major media fascination: Big sister Paris’s new romance with Benji Madden. “They’re super sweet,” said Nicky. “He’s a nice guy.”

Madden and Paris caused a stir backstage when the high-profile couple arrived for the show, but Madden left his new squeeze so she could be with her sister until the show began. Paris, who wore a red and black halter dress from her sister’s collection – and her new ring that reads “BM” – said the dress, is “one of my favorites.”

Also at the show to support Nicky were parents Rick and Kathy Hilton – proud dad snapped photos of the catwalk on his iPhone – and boyfriend, David Katzenberg, who presented Nicky with a bouquet of white roses and a kiss on the cheek at the end of the show.

Joel and Benji Madden: Soul Men

Joel and Benji Madden are the current music scene’s best-known twins – but they bear a striking resemblance to another famous duo: The Blues Brothers.

The Good Charlotte rockers, pictured in West Hollywood Monday wearing black shades and fedoras, echo the same cool style Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi made famous on Saturday Night Live and with their 1980 movie, The Blues Brothers.

Now all the Maddens have to do is figure out their “mission from God.”

“Let me make this as plain as possible – Benji did not leave me for Paris Hilton,” Monk, 28, said in a statement, according to Australia’s Herald Sun “Benji and I did not break up badly or anything like that. We both decided, as adults, our relationship had run its course and decided to move on. I feel no animosity towards Benji and Paris at all and am very happy with life at the moment.”

Less than two weeks after Monk, an Australian native, and the Good Charlotte guitarist called off their engagement , Madden, 28, was seen with Hilton. On Friday, Hilton, 27, left the jewelry store XIV Karats of Beverly Hills wearing a ring on her engagement finger, but declined to reveal whether she had wedding plans.
