It's official: Paris Hilton will host this weekend's Saturday Night Live, NBC has announced. The British band Keane will be the musical guest.

Previously, at the time her notorious sex video was making headlines in 2003, the hotel heiress and Simple Life star, 23, appeared in an SNL interview with Jimmy Fallon on the show's Weekend Update segment.

The tongue-in-cheek back-and-forth went, in part, as follows:

Fallon (to Hilton): "As we agreed, we won't be discussing the scandal, uh.. that's been in the papers the past couple of weeks, all right? ... We just want to find out about you – Paris Hilton. Okay. So, your family ... they own hotels all over the world, right?"

More on this story

Hilton: "Yes, they're in New York, London, Paris ..."

Fallon: "... there actually is a Paris Hilton? ... Is it hard to get into the Paris Hilton?"

Hilton: "Actually, it's a very exclusive hotel – no matter what you've heard."

Fallon: "... Is the Paris Hilton roomy?"

Hilton: "It might be for you, but most people find it very comfortable."

This Saturday's visit will mark Hilton's first time back and her first time as host.
