Perez Hilton Facts

  1. He is a self-proclaimed workaholic who claims to work 16-17 hours a day and survives on 4.5 hours of sleep each night ever since he became a father.
  2. His blog was initially called “PageSixSixSix.com”. Mario renamed it to “PerezHilton.com” in 2007. He thought of his professional name while partying with his friends in South Beach, Miami, waiting for Paris Hilton’s appearance at an event where she did not turn up.
  3. After his graduation, for almost 4 years, Mario struggled to find work as an actor. Meanwhile, he paid his bills by working as a freelance writer for gay publications. He also served as a media relations assistant for GLAAD organization, took up a job as a receptionist for NYC gay events club, Urban Outings, and briefly served as the managing editor of Instincts magazine.
  4. In 2004, Mario started blogging as a hobby to fulfill his perpetual interest in writing and talking about celebrities. His site gained a massive audience in 6 months.
  5. In 2004, Mario participated in a VH1 weight-loss reality show, Flab to Fab, where he lost 20 kg or 45 lbs in 3 months, thereby reducing his weight from 93 kg (206 lbs) to 73 kg (160 lbs).
  6. In 2005, Perez Hilton was sued by Colin Farrell for posting a link to his s*x-tape with then-girlfriend, Nicole Narain.
  7. Mario was sued by several companies, artists, agencies, and photographers for copyright infringement in 2007. He settled most of those cases out of court. In the same year, he inaccurately reported Cuban President, Fidel Castro’s death and regrets that as one of his biggest errors in reporting skills.
  8. During the early years of his blog, Perez Hilton is held responsible for outing several gay celebrities, including NSYNC member, Lance Bass, and actor, Neil Patrick Harris.
  9. Mario was a judge on the panel of Miss USA 2009 and was criticized for condemning Miss California for her beliefs against same-s*x marriage.
  10. In 2015, he played the lead role of Danny Tanner in Full House! The Musical, an off-Broadway theatrical production that ran for almost 3 months. It was a satire on the popular 90s sitcom of the same name.
  11. Perez published 2 books on celebrity culture in 2009 and released a children’s book called The Boy with Pink Hair in September 2011, which was inspired by his childhood.
