It would have been a catfight made in celebrity heaven.
Actress Mischa Barton requested that Paris and Nicky Hilton be blacklisted from Saturday's red carpet and grand opening bash at CatHouse Loungerie, the new club at Luxor.
"They were blacklisted," a spy told Vegas Confidential. "Mischa's team didn't want her to be associated with the party-girl scene. They were difficult. They wanted a bigger jet (sent). Mischa wanted to bring her dogs."
Said another spy: "They wanted the invitation re-done because they thought it was too risqué for her image." The original invitation featured a model in brothel attire.
Barton, the 21-year-old former star of "The O.C.," backed out of hosting the grand opening after she was arrested early Thursday on DUI charges. The Hilton sisters were in the CatHouse neighborhood on Saturday. They dined nearby at Company American Bistro in Luxor and stopped in LAX nightclub, also at Luxor, before heading for Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace, where Nicky hosted the evening.
