YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Paris Hilton isn't the only Hilton heiress on the move. While the tabs and blogs are full of reports about the Malee-boo beach house that the newly spiritual blond ex-con rented for the summer, sister Nicky Hilton quietly purchased her own American dream in the Hollywood Hills just above Sunset Boulevard.

Now all you bitter bitches out there are surely saying to yourself that it must be nice for the Hilton sibs to have a mommy and daddy who buy their spoiled children multi-million dollar houses. At the risk for looking like a Hilton apologist, which we are decidedly not, Your Mama is not so sure Rick and Kathy wrote the check for Miss Nicky's new house.

Like it or not, Nicky Hilton works. On a few occasions, the socialite heiress and Fashion Institute of Technology drop put, has walked the runway for the fantastically freaky Heatherette boys. The self described "handbag freak" designs a line of handbags, although Your Mama could not tell you what they look like or where to buy one. And fairly recently, with Sister Paris as her partner, she developed her own line of clothing called Chick by Nicky Hilton. Apparently "Chick" was a childhood nickname. Or at least that's what the PR people are saying.

And then, last year, the brown haired Hilton sister famously tried to get into the family business. There was a good amount of hoopla and press about the younger Miss Hilton opening a chain of boutique condo-hotels called Nicky O (her middle name is Olivia). The first one was scheduled to open in late 2006 in South Beach, of course, and the idea was to have big name fashion designers like Roberto Cavalli, Betsey Johnson, and the Heatherette homos decorate the suites. But alas the project went South, the developer went bankrupt, and Miss Nicky has stopped yakking to all the press about her hotel projects.

Say what you will about her banal clothing line, ugly purses, and failed hotel endeavors, but the behawtcha gets paid big bucks to "develop" these projects, whether anyone buys them or not. So the short of the long of it is that Miss Nicky Hilton more than likely has plenty of her own money to buy a multi million dollar house in the Hollywood Hills.

Your Mama hears from one of our well informed sources that Miss Nicky only closed on this house in the last few days, which means the records haven't cleared and we aren't able to reveal what she paid for the property. We were, however, able to get our greedy and fat fingers on the listing for the property which tells us that the asking price for the house was $2,995,000. (UPDATE: She paid $2,800,000 according to property records.)

Although we enjoy the eclectic and spare nature of much of what we see (i.e. big windows, dark floors, white walls, the yellow bed cover in the bedroom, and the orange and magenta colored rug causes Your Mama to swoon with delight), the decor in the photos above is that of the previous owner. So don't go knocking the younger Miss Hilton for that threatening statuary in the entry hall, which would scare the piss out of Your Mama coming home from a late night at Le Deux, or those upsetting, and most assuredly very expensive, mint colored poufs in the living room.

Sitting on a tree shaded lot just North of Sunset Boulevard, the 4,072 square foot house includes 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Two of those bathrooms are located in the master bedroom, which means that Miss Nicky and current beau, Hollywood scion David Katzenberg, will have some bless-ed privacy when they perform their morning ablutions.

According to the listing, the large kitchen has four ovens. Count 'em. One, two, three, four. Your Mama is quite sure Miss Nicky is capable of multiple feats of amazement, but using four ovens at one time is probably not one of her many skills and talents. Of course Your Mama can only hope that Miss Nicky has the good sense to remove that silly pot rack before one of Sister Paris' hair pieces get caught up in there resulting in a hair disaster of the highest magnitude.

Your Mama is pleased to see that the house has a nice circular drive, because let's be honest, Sister Paris and her hair extensions will surely be visiting on a regular basis and she just can't be trusted to put her Bentley in reverse any more. Sorry dear.

A quick scan of the photographs tells us Miss Nicky is going to be faced with some serious landscaping bills. All the jungle foliage, green grass, and the precision clipped hedge are going to need significant effort, and somehow Your Mama does not think Miss Nicky knows how to operate a lawnmower or successfully wield a pair of hedge trimmers.

Your Mama has some mixed feelings about the swimming pool. We appreciate the dark color but we know deep in our hearts those boulders that form the back wall are fake boulders and that causes us no end of agita.

Your Mama expects Miss Nicky will forgo a nice gay decorator in favor of working out her own interior design ideas. We do hope for the best, but after seeing a few snaps of her handbags and clothing line, we're a little skeptical.

All the blogs seem to be stating that the house Paris is renting is worth $2.9M - how can they get it so wrong? The property she is renting is at the end of the colony / start of malibu rd where the beach is extremely wide ... It will be worth over $10M ... Mama, you should do a post about it & show all the gossip blogs how it's done ... As for his house - not loving it, wonder if it was one of her dads or uncle maurizios listings?

This house is pretty ordinary. Call in the bulldozers.

I'm liking Nicki's new house. It's got character and has an inviting homey feel. I especially like how the structure and property blend so well together, complimenting each other to create a sanctuary, a retreat. Stars who serially buy and sell cold monotliths to sooth their fragile egos ought to give one of these a try sometime. My only criticism, as Mama suggested, is the faux inspired pool area. A nice retaining wall made of natural stacked stone would look far better.

I like the setting in lush natural landscape. peaceful(until the pops show up). If address and Zillow are correct, it sold for $2.8M, 4BR, 3 BA, 4072 SF. Who lives 2 doors down at 1235? luv to see inside that one.

I think, that the house at 1235 belongs to Carlos Boozer a forward for the utah jazz. He had rented it to Prince.

Is this the rental Prince doused in purple?

Carlos Boozer sold the place after having rented it to Prince. This is the same house Prince painted purple (that has since been fixed), the house was then purchased by the inventor of Rockstar Energy Drink Russell Weiner, he bought the place and is now trying to unload his old place on Sunset Plaza Drive for $14,995,000

Fashion is actually cyclical but some brands are classical and discover a method to outlast your fads together with trends. Every once in a while the aged heritage brands create a comeback. Popularly termed the apparel that produced its way in the cold winter slopes of the French Alps as the official outfitting for any French Olympic company, Moncler outdoor jackets have produced their way into the closets of those people who are serious about the clothes that they wear together with subsequently set the trends that everybody else ends up required to follow.

Also gone are the cliched designs and colors of down outerwear. Stores now carry moncler online shop lines of patterned jackets in vivid colors like pink, blue and green, along with the standard black and tan looks that many people favor. You can buy a fur-lined parka-style down coat, or a hoodless jacket, if you don't want your head covered.
