Everyone knows this town is a snake pit; no need to add a new species of animal to the Hollywood population, right? Especially if that species is a relatively adorable breed of pig that also could fit really nicely into my larger saute pan?
The logic seems sound, but not around here. Hollywood seems to be developing a genuine obsession with pet pigs. The piglet adoption stories just keep on coming.
First, Paris Hilton brought home one of these small pigs -- a breed called Royal Dandie Extreme. Hilton named the porker Princess Piglette. Now Jessica Simpson has tweeted that she, too might adopt a porcine companion. Simpson has been heartbroken since September, when her dog, Daisy, got snatched from her backyard by a coyote. Now, she tweets, “I'm thinking about getting a pet pig. Does this mean I'll have to give up pork?”
PETA is annoyed, natch.
