Kathy Hilton To Guest On "Young And The Restless"

Paris Hilton's mom has a new gig.

Kathy Hilton will play herself on the May 13 episode of the CBS soap opera "The Young and the Restless."

She finds a magazine cover model for her friend Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), but takes over the photo shoot, infuriating magazine staffers, in the episode taped Wednesday.

Hilton starred in her own NBC reality show in 2005, "I Want to Be a Hilton," in which contestants competed for a chance to live like a socialite for a year.

She made headlines last May at daughter Paris' probation-violation hearing by laughing when a city prosecutor argued that Paris deserved jail time.

Bardot On Trial For Allegedly Inciting Anti-Muslim Hatred

2Brigitte Bardot is back on trial in France, facing charges of fanning discrimination and racial hatred against Muslims.

In a Paris court hearing Tuesday, prosecutors said they are seeking a two-month suspended prison sentence and a $23,900 fine against the former screen siren and animal rights campaigner.

Bardot, 73, was not present for the hearing. A verdict is expected June 3.

A leading French anti-racism group known as MRAP filed suit last year over a letter that Bardot sent to then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, and which was published in her foundation's quarterly journal.

In the letter to Sarkozy, now the president, Bardot accused France's Muslim population of destroying France, and complained about the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha.

French anti-racism laws prevent inciting hatred and discrimination on racial or religious or racial grounds. Bardot has been convicted four times for inciting racial hatred.

Uma Thurman Fails The "Flash Test"

3Uma Thurman says she didn't do the "flash test" on a gown, and paid the price.

Last night, David Letterman tried to hold up a picture of Thurman wearing a see-through dress at a London benefit, but she grabbed it out of his hands.

You can see just about everything in the picture. Thurman says the flashes from the paparazzi make the gown seem even more transparent than under normal light.

She adds she didn't have time to do a "flash test" before wearing the dress on the red carpet.

Letterman took the picture back, saying it was property of the show.

A doctor at the hospital says cardiovascular disease is the nation's leading killer of women, nearly 500,000 deaths a year, but most research on heart disease revolves around men.

Streisand says women must take a hand in reducing risks for heart disease. The new program will conduct trials of new drugs for women, try to identify the role of gender in heart disease and work on other ways to cut risk.
