Panettiere calls Hilton a ‘genius’

Well, sort of. Actually, what Hayden Panettiere said of Paris Hilton was as follows:

Can’t really argue with that. What I find much more funny about all this is that I found the quote on a blog called “We Heart Hayden,” devoted entirely to the exploits of the Palisdades native and “Heroes” star. Among the other newsflashes in the last week:

  • Panettiere is like a black widow spider when it comes to dating: “going out with me will be really bad,” she warns her mates [April 28]
  • She likes hanging out with the old kids … including reported boyfriend, Milo Ventimiglia [April 26]
  • The actress blogs on her MySpace page. And vlogs, too! [April 25]
  • Hayden was bullied in high school in Rockland (sheesh, no wonder she left) [April 23]
  • Panettiere likes orange bras. Which of course begs the question: Who doesn’t? [April 23]
