London - Paris Hilton is spending her Thanksgiving watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

The socialite is taking it easy after a “brutal” drive up to Palm Springs, California, to be with her family for the annual holiday on Thursday and has been enjoying a few episodes of the series, which follows the life of child beauty pageant contestant Alana Thompson.

In a series of Twitter posts, she said: “The traffic to Palm Springs is beyond insane! So brutal! At least I'm in the passenger seat with my iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry and computer.

“Can't wait to help my mom cook Thanksgiving dinner. One of my favourite kinds of food. @KathyHilton is an amazing cook! And so am I! (sic)”

She later added: “At home relaxing watching Honey Boo Boo. She is such a lil character, love her! Such a funny cute show. Lol (sic)”

She also posted a picture of herself kissing her boyfriend - male model River Viiperi - with the caption: “Love & magical kisses in the mountains with @RiverViiperi. Seize every moment, because life is beautiful... (sic)”

Paris has recently been to Hawaii with River, and they have remained a couple despite him getting into a scrape in a nightclub which led to him being taken into police custody after punching a man who filed the police stating Paris was “making out” with his girlfriend at a nightclub in Las Vegas. - Bang Showbiz
