The LA Times lightly digs up the dirt on the digger himself:

  • Blogging was so easy, he took it up as a hobby
  • Launched in 2004, the original PerezHilton.com was called PageSixSixSix.com, but the real Page Six people -- the New York Post -- sued him.
  • The website's "name reflects his Cuban roots and 'the wacky world of celebrities.'"
  • Paris Hilton loves the name.
  • Per day: 40 posts, 7 million pageviews, $54,000 for one day of advertising
  • Fame does not equal a life of sex

Perez Hilton can be seen at his best when he was kidnapped by YouTube star LisaNova.
