Tonight, a new reality show called, “The World According To Paris” will be debuting on Oxygen. Doing the expected publicity rounds for the show, Paris Hilton and her mother stopped by Piers Morgan Tonight last night to talk about…well, Paris’s world.
Aside from this new reality show (which isn’t her first), Paris has built an empire for herself in business, with over 17 different product lines under her name. In the interview, she talks about how proud she is of what she has accomplished, but at the same time is kind of humble about it: “I don’t like to discuss money…it’s something my mom always taught me….It sounds obnoxious when people do that.”
As you’d expect from Morgan, his interview with Paris doesn’t shy away from the fact that Paris Hilton became a household name following the release of a sex tape from someone she had been with (Rick Salomon) for two years. Paris was 20 when that tape was filmed, so it’s been nearly a decade ago now but it never goes away.
Her mom tried holding back tears as Paris explained:
“People assume, ‘Oh, she’s a slut’ because of one thing that happened to me and it’s hard because I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children. And it’s something that’s changed my life forever and I’ll never be able to erase it.”
