funny story of the day.

this is what happens when you drop your cell phone in the toilet, you go to your wireless dealer to get it replaced, and they give you a new number that used to be paris hilton's.

Just after Barlow got her new phone, a flurry of calls and text messages came within days of Hilton's Feb. 17 birthday.

"Oh my God," a caller said. "Where's the party?"

One weekend, Barlow said she answered a call and was lectured by an unidentified woman who got angry when asked if she was calling from Florida.

"I'm so insulted. You must be on drugs," the woman said before calling back five times to lecture Barlow on how "tacky" people were from the Sunshine State.

Another time, she had a long conversation with an aspiring rap artist who, after learning he was not talking with Hilton, still invited Barlow to a party.

Then came the day Hilton went to court for violating probation after pleading no contest to an alcohol-related reckless driving charge, and was sentenced to jail.

Calls and texts that previously inquired about parties were replaced by dozens expressing their condolences.

"People were scared for her," Barlow said.

The phone traffic trailed off when Hilton entered jail last month. But since Hilton was recently released, a new crop of communiquDes is flooding Barlow's telephone.

There was Hilton's former bodyguard who sent his love. A girlfriend called to commiserate and lend support, as did many text messages.

"It's disgusting how they treated you in there, but once again you have showed the world that you can do anything," one wrote.

Barlow said she has resisted the temptation to pose as Hilton to get herself and friends on the guest list of exclusive parties.

But she did message supporters "thanks so much," believing Hilton would appreciate it.
