Paris Hilton settles Hallmark lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE: Heiress sued company over greeting card

Paris Hilton will be getting a little something in the mail from Hallmark this year.

Hilton has settled a lawsuit against the company over a controversial greeting card (right) that featured a scene seemingly ripped from her old reality show "The Simple Life." The caption read "Paris's First Day as a Waitress" and made a pun on her trademarked catch phrase, "That's Hot." In 2007, Hilton sued, claiming her publicity rights had been violated.

Last week, attorneys for Hilton and Hallmark advised a California judge that they had reached a settlement. A confidentiality provision limits the release of exact terms, but we have reason to believe Hilton walked away with a favorable package.
