NEW YORK, Sept. 4 /-- Perez Hilton has been shocking his online visitors since 2004 with his inside scoop on the latest celebrity gossip. Now the self-proclaimed "Queen of all Media" is at it again with his hilarious new TV special "What Perez Sez," premiering on VH1 on Tuesday, September 11 at 9:00 PM.* Set as a series of specials revolving around major pop culture events, Perez uses his post-modern guerilla approach to give the audience his one-of-kind take on some of this year's hottest happenings, and ultimately land some major celebrity interviews. Each special will be jam- packed with our favorite celebrities through field shoots, one-on-one chit- chats with the stars and red carpet interviews.

Viewers will get a sneak peek into the untamed world of Perez Hilton as he breaks the red tape surrounding Hollywood's favorite stars. Throughout the show, the audience is presented with produced themed packages and non- traditional magazine segments. Set in Perez Hilton's own wild and unscripted reality, viewers will also be exposed to his "professional," and often irreverent take on all the most up-to-date and late breaking dish surrounding the event. "What Perez Sez" will feature recaps of what happened, and of course, the gossip gangsta's thoughts on what really went down. The comedy will be infectious; the gossip, scandalous, and each episode will be filled with Perez's no-holds-barred style as he hustles major celebrity interviews and brings mayhem to star-studded events.

"In the world of celebreality, Perez Hilton is a new kind of creature: fan, critic, and star all in one," commented series Executive Producer Randy Barbato. "What Perez Sez" will do for TV what his blog has done for gossip," concluded Executive Producer Fenton Bailey.

"What Perez Sez"

Most famous -- or infamous -- for his online blog, Perez's daily dose of snarky commentary attracts more than 6 million web visitors per day. The nation's leading magazines have recognized Perez's tremendous online presence; Details magazine named him the #5 most powerful man in America in 2006, Forbes listed him on its "Web Celeb 25" and Newsweek compared his influence on music to Oprah's book club. With his signature style and flair for the unordinary, Perez Hilton has been shocking online viewers since 2004 and will continue to shake up celebrities everywhere with his inside scoop on the latest gossip, scandal and fun facts that never fail to stun and leave his dedicated readers in amazement. Perez Hilton is the name people trust when they want the latest breaking celebrity news.
