TMZ.com reports a clash of the Lohan and Hilton factions at Hollywood club Hyde on Friday night, in which tense words were allegedly exchanged between trips to the bathroom stall and quaintly exhibitionist tabletop dances involving the chugging of overpriced designer vodka-based cocktails. Sadly, dueling publicist statements reveal that no high-caliber firearms were discharged in the course of the dispute:
Paris' rep, Elliot Mintz, plays down the incident. "Inside the club," he says, "Paris was having a conversation with a couple friends. Lindsay approached her table and at that moment Paris felt she was being interrupted and didn't wish to speak with Lindsay. A couple of words were exchanged and Lindsay went back to her table. I can understand how other patrons in the club could have thought it had been a bigger deal then it actually was."
Sources tell TMZ that the root of this apparent tension may be because Lindsay has recently been on a publicity campaign for her new film, 'Just My Luck.' Sources say Paris is upset because during the campaign Lindsay has mentioned Paris' name in interviews with the media. They say Paris feels as if Lindsay is using Paris' name to further her career. [...]
Lindsay's publicist told TMZ, "Lindsay doesn't need to drop names to get publicity. She has talent, great style and beauty."
