Greeks to Paris: Leave Our Boys Alone!

The Goddess of Love she ain't: According to the New York Daily News, Paris Hilton should have a scarlet letter "X" tattooed on her taut tummy as far as Greece's biggest shipping families are concerned. Sources say a group of parents have banded together to make sure their sons don't even think about marrying Paris.

"Letters have been exchanged between them," claims a knowledgeable Greek society source. "It's fine that they dated her, but they don't want her in their families." You hear that, Stavros Niarchos, Paris Latsis and Chris Contogouris? (We're not sure if Mark Philippoussis counts, since he's only half-Greek.)

Although the former jailbird is currently dating T-shirt designer Tyler Atkins, Paris does seem to favor billionaire Greek boys whose families specialize in big oil tankers. Who wouldn't?

Apparently the issue isn't money, it's class -- which Greek families take very seriously. X-rated videos and prison time haven't helped her image, either. Paris Latsis' mother, socialite Marianna Latsis, reportedly refused to meet the American heiress during her son's five-month engagement in 2005. A spokesman for the Latsis family could not be reached, but a friend of the Niarchos family says: "[Stavros] is a big boy. They don't need to talk to him, because he can handle himself. Yes, everybody knows she's trouble. But he doesn't need his family to tell him who to date."

Paris recently stayed at currently platonic pal Niarchos' place in Hawaii just after getting out of the slammer. The pair have dated on-again, off-again for a while, and were briefly engaged.
