Finding it very "painful" to deal with the fact that her ex-boyfriend Rick Solomon made public the sex tape they recorded when they were still dating, Paris Hilton warns young girls not to follow in her footsteps. "I want young girls to never put themselves in that situation I was in. Don't ever let someone talk you into doing something you don't want to do," the Hilton Hotel heiress says.

Speaking of her and Rick's x-rated video which was made public by him in 2003, Paris exclaims, "I was humiliated, embarrassed and in shock that it happened." She then adds, "It was definitely very painful. When you trust someone and love someone - for them to do that to you, it's really hard. It's something that bothers me everyday."

Ridley Scott Returns to Direct 'Alien' Prequel

July 31, 2009 08:46:14 GMT

The man behind 1979's "Alien", Ridley Scott, is officially attached to direct "Alien" prequel, Variety reported. The updated news contradicts earlier reports which suggested that Ridley appointed commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch for the role behind the camera, and supports rumors that 20th Century Fox won't green-lit the movie without the Academy Award-nominated filmmaker.

Back in May, Entertainment Weekly (EW) had come out with a story that there are conflicting ideas on who should take the director seat. While Ridley wants Rinsch to take the job, "the studio is not interested in greenlighting a prequel unless Scott himself directs," so the publication stated. To complicate things even more, Rinsch has more than a professional relationship to Ridley as rumor has it, he is romantically linked to Ridley's daughter, Jordan.

The YouTube video showing Chris Brown making public apology to fans and Rihanna for assaulting her, which hit the web earlier last week, reportedly sends Rihanna to "total shock".

All she knows is that it's in the news again and that's the one thing she didn't want. She's been trying to put it behind her and move on as fast as possible."

Rihanna and Chris, still according to the source, "spoke earlier last week and Chris made no mention of any public statement then. She wishes he'd given her at least a heads-up about it. But that's Chris, always thinking of himself first and forgetting how this would impact on her."
