Paris dumps beau but doesn't mope


Party girl Paris Hilton was flying solo in Las Vegas over the weekend and now the world knows why: It's over -- again -- with her and Doug Reinhardt.

Hilton, who partied at Wet Republic at MGM Grand and Tao at The Venetian on Saturday, dumped him, according to E!.

So much for all those breathless reports about a wedding in the works.

Hilton was still out on the town at 4:30 a.m. Photographer Eric Boone shot a picture of her standing in an artificial snowstorm about that time at Tao.

Eyewitnesses said she didn't appear to be inconsolable.

"She was raging. Dancing on tables for hours," a spy said. She was with sister Nicky and her sister's boyfriend, David Katzenberg. Their group was at the same table with NFL star Reggie Bush and Oscar winner Jamie Foxx.
