Paris Hilton raised eyebrows at a recent photo shoot by openly flirting with Brazilian playboy Ricardo Mansur. The partying heiress — who is engaged to shipping heir Paris Latsis — cast “long, loving looks” at Mansur, reports our below-the-border source.
Mansur has been linked to model Gisele Bundchen and is currently dating a Brazilian actress.
Hilton seems confused about another partnership as well. The star of the reality show “The Simple Life” was telling people that she had no idea who her co-star would be, even though show insiders say that Nicole Richie has a contract to appear opposite in the series. Hilton, however, is telling people “we start shooting in November, but I’m not sure who I will appear with.”
Hilton has enjoyed certain aspects of Brazil other than Mansur, going to a nightclub and belting out two songs from her forthcoming album. “The crowd went wild,” says our source, “in a good way.”
