Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

It looks like Paris Hilton wasn't the People's Choice after all!
The former Simple Life star had no trouble getting into the People's Choice Awards at the start of the night.
But then, bored as usual, Paris decided to step out of the ceremony for a
quickie cigarette with her boytoy River Viiperi.
And security wouldn't let them back in!
Didn't they recognize her??
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the heiress try to talk her way back in before eventually making an angry phone call!
The hot couple isn't used to being denied entry to clubs around the world, but this was one party they were going to have to skip!
Remember when smoking used to make you look cool? Not no mo'! (Plus it's super icky! They should both stop!)
UPDATE: Paris HERSELF has told us this story is 100 percent FALSE! Perhaps her smoking days are over??
