Last month, Gilbert hosted Salma Hayek and Jane Fonda in a benefit performance of "The Vagina Monologues."

Hilton, who stars in E! Entertainment Television's "The Simple Life" opposite ex-friend Nicole Richie, told "Live With Regis and Kelly" on Tuesday that she's "single for the first time" in her life. "I always have a boyfriend all the time, so I've never really got to know me and, like, have time for myself because I spend all my energy on the boyfriend," the 25- year-old hotel heiress-actress said.
