What A Difference A Year Makes

| Filed under: Personally Perez

2008 has been the best year our life, both professionally and personally.

It was a year of "firsts."

Our first year in our 30s. Our first year in radio. Our first year in films. Our first year putting on musical events across the world!

And the website continued to get bigger and better.

We lost more weight than we care to know. And we still aren't weighing ourselves!

We got to make some beautiful memories with our family, who now live with us in Los Angeles after we moved them from Miami in late 2007.

And we're just getting started, personally and professionally!

2009 will see our new book released. A bunch of exciting projects we're working on will hopefully come into fruition. And, most importantly, we're going to continue to work towards creating our own happiness.

We're gonna buy a home in '09. Now's the time to to buy!

We're gonna put ourselves out there more and hopefully date someone nice.

And we're definitely going to continue on our journey of being healthier. That's for life!

As always, we can't thank you enough for making PerezHilton.com part of your daily routine.

We are all one big family. We may not always agree on things, but there's nothing but love from us to you.

2009 is upon us and we wish you and your family all the best. Lots of love, health, job stability, and - once again - good health. It's what's most important in life.

Big big hugs!!!!

Perezzzzzzzzz

P.S. The last picture below is of our new hair cut and color, which we got done yesterday at Kim Vo's new salon in Beverly Hills before we flew out to NYC.

  27. 27

    If its been your best year, why are you sitll such a hate-filled fat fuck? You are entertaining but you can do it without the obvious animosity to quite a few celebs you cover on your site. My resolution this year is to not support you. I can't take your attitude anymore.

    One more thing. The reason why you bash these people is because you don't have what it takes to actually be one of them.



  28. 28

    ugly fatass



  29. 29

    Happy New Year Perez!! Incredible but you indeed belong to my daily routine now and at the moment you are almost the only person who makes me smile or laugh, while I usually feel miserable otherwise… thank you so much for being who you are, I think you are a great person and you deserve your success. Enjoy it, but please stay true to yourself.
    Love,
    Marie

    that seemed sincere. true that about getting along. sometimes this blog post gets pretty mean and nasty. I guess that reflects the hearts of the mean and nasty ones. Happy New Year Perez regulars and everyone else!!



  83. 83

    HAPPY NEW YEAR PEREZ! I love you xoxo



  84. 84

    Nice to see so many positive changes emerge from such a challenging year! But on a purely superficial note: you should definitely stick with a more mature, classy style (as in the photo with Katy and Paris) — timelessness is best.



  85. 85

    Good job on the weight loss. You can definitely tell in those pictures.



  86. 86

    WOW, Perez…looking HOT!! When are you gonna start acting?? Need to see you on TV and in movies with those looks…those EYES!!!
