Paris Hilton is still pretending to be upset about the ‘leak’ of her sex tape, seven years after the fact. When it, singularly, is the reason for this level of fame.
Hilton, in one last bid to keep her fame as she heads towards 40, appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight. She took her mother to the interview and both feigned sadness at the well-timed release of One Night In Paris. It’s not like this is anything new. But it’s pretty amusing that her mother’s in on the act. ‘I just felt so betrayed, this was not some random guy, this was someone I was with for a few years,’ said Hilton of ex-boyfriend Rick Soloman, who sold the tape to Vivid (probably with her knowledge, as it’s illegal to sell tapes without those concerned signing a release… which would mean she knew about the release and profited from it). ‘Now when people look at me, they think I’m something I’m not, just because of one incident one night, with someone I was in love with. People assume, ‘Oh, she’s a slut’… I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children… It’s something that changed my life forever.’
