LOS ANGELES, Calif. (July 7, 2007) — Paris Hilton has made her first appearance on the club scene since being released from jail last week.The recently-incarcerated heiress partied at Los Angeles hotspot Les Deux on Friday night, Paris reportedly arrived at the Hollywood club shortly before midnight, flanked by a group that included her sister, Nicky, and music producer David Foster’s daughter, Erin Foster.Sporting a black fedora and gray-sleeved shirt, Hilton sat at a table with two bodyguards who helped protect her from photo-snapping fans.But far be it from Paris to simply sit around at a club — the party girl in her came out with a vengeance when she reportedly jumped up on a couch, and then “danced seductively” against a wall as she sang along to a number of songs (including her own little ditty, “Stars are Blind”). “Paris was super happy and full of smiles,” a clubgoer reportedly told PEOPLE. “She was laughing, having fun, drinking, dancing, singing along to songs, talking to everyone and hugging all the girls at her table.”
Since being jailed for a probation violation in an alcohol-related driving case, Paris has told everyone from Barbara Walters to Larry King that she now has a more serious outlook on life — but she never said she would give up social activities entirely.In fact, Hilton addressed the “clubbing” issue with PEOPLE mere hours after her release:“I’ve been doing it for a long time. It’s fun. I’m a social person. I love music. I love to dance. I love to hangout with my friends,” she said. “But that’s not what I care about as much anymore. Obviously I’ll still go out sometimes. I’m young and I like to be social, but I’m going to focus more on my work.”
Following a brief vacation in Hawaii, Paris stressed the importance of being responsible when going out for a good time:“Happy 4th of July everyone, and remember to be responsible and have a designated driver,” she wrote in a blog entry on her MySpace Web page Tuesday.
