Looks like a feud between heiresses might be brewing.

Ivanka Trump has some pretty harsh words for Paris Hilton — and says she is nothing like the hotel heiress, and is tired of being compared to her.

“I work 13-hour days for my money,” the 25-year-old former model, who now works for dad Donald’s business, told the London Express. “I bought my house from my father — I have a mortgage, you know.”

She says she’s not at all like that “party kid” Hilton.

“I think we are totally different individuals,” Trump said. “If I were to go off the rails and become this party kid, I would not be able to afford my lifestyle. I’ve never had a sense of entitlement. I saw how hard my father worked for his money and it was always made very clear to me that things wouldn’t just be given to me.”

Sweating over signatures
Speaking of Paris Hilton — apparently, she does work for her money: she signs autographs.

The construction magnate who created a stir in Austria by inviting Hilton to Vienna’s ultra posh Opera Ball has blasted reports that he’s paying the partying heiress $1 million to attend the swank affair this Thursday. 

He admits, however, that he’s paying her big bucks to sign at one of his shopping malls while she’s in town. “I am not a fool who gives away money,” he boasted.

One gig Hilton didn’t get, however, was an appearance on singer Charlotte Church’s talk show. Hilton reportedly wanted nearly $500,000 to show up.

“I certainly don’t agree with what Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan do,” Church said. “There’s no need to go out without your knickers on.”

Notes from all over
Was Paula Abdul almost replaced on “American Idol” by a former member of the Go-Gos? The lead singer from the 1980s girl group says she was approached about it. “As far as ‘American Idol’ goes, I was actually approached a couple of years ago about possibly replacing Paula Abdul,” Belinda Carlisle told PlanetOut.com. “But to answer your question [as to whether she’d want to be a judge on the show], I really don’t know. To be perfectly honest, it’s just not my thing. I’d rather listen to music that comes from a more organic place. But you know, I just ... don’t know if I would or not.” . . . More than a dozen Anna Nicole Smith-related Web site domains are up for sale on eBay, some for $1 million. . . .Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may look like one tough guy, but some things really bug him. “I don’t like spiders, so I guess I have arachnophobia,” the wrestler-turned-actor said, reports WENN. “But you know huge roaches and locusts? I don’t like them either.”
