Charleston Stage’s Paris Hilton Connection!

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 4:14 pm

Greetings from Los Angeles!  Sarah Pavia here,  I was a member of Charleston Stage’s TheatreWings Apprentince class of ’99.  I’ve been living out in LA for almost four years now where I’ve stumbled into a career as a reality television producer.  I just finished what might actually be the most surreal adventure of my life so far… “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” for MTV.  Let me tell you, following Paris Hilton around for six week as she tries to find a new best friend has taken me to some amazing locations doing things I never would’ve imagined.  I came into the project with some of the same pre-conceived notions as anybody would about Paris, but I can say that after getting to know her, she’s a very sweet and business savvy woman.  Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been to the most exclusive clubs in Los Angeles, Manhattan and Las Vegas.  Patricia Fields (the costume designer for “Sex and the City”) gave me fashion advice in her store.  I attended the MTV Movie Awards.  I took a helicopter ride overManhattan.  We went to the Hamptons “just to grab lunch.”  Paris gave me a tour of the mini-mansion she built for her dogs in her backyard.  I’ve been involved in paparazzi chases and seen myself in the background on TMZ.  I’ve met scores of celebrities and fashion designers, some of who’ve asked me to “make them look good on television.”  Being involved in this show has been the hardest job I’ve ever had, but also one of the most rewarding.
