Paris Hilton Talks Sex Tape, Says She’s Neither “Spoiled” Nor A “Slut”

|

That Piers Morgan sure knows how to do a hard-hitting interview. The Larry King replacement had Paris Hilton and her mom Kathy on his show last night, and—once Piers got done complimenting Paris and the Kardashians for their amazing work in the world of branding—he gave the reality TV star/socialite a chance to clear up some misconceptions. For one thing, Paris isn’t spoiled! “People assume that everything was handed to me and I’ve never had to work a day in my life. But, in reality, I’ve worked so hard,” she explained. “I’ve done this all on my own and I don’t take anything from my family, I do everything by myself.” Kathy then shared an anecdote about Paris making her buy her a cell phone when she was 15, which somehow related to Paris being “thrifty.” “I think it’s just something that runs in my blood, wanting to be creative and do big things,” said the younger Hilton.

After repeatably calling her work ethic and empire “laudable,” he brought up Paris’ sex tape. “You know, and I was a little girl, I looked up to people like Princess Diana and these women, and I feel like [then-boyfriend/sex tape partner Rick Salomon] took that away from me…This is not what I planned. I didn’t want to be known as that, and now, when people look at me they think that I’m something I’m not just because of one incident one night with someone who I was in love with. People assume—oh, she’s a slut just because of one thing that happened to me and it’s hard because I’ll never—I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children.” Well, there’s also the infamous Carl’s Jr. ad and countless other allegations of sex-crazed drug abuse with fellow socialites/brands, but yeah, one could argue that the sex tape is a big reason Paris never got to be America’s Princess Diana. And far be it from Piers to suggest otherwise.
