Paris Hilton walked off during an ABC News interview this week after being questioned about her flop life, flop television show, and flopping popularity. She was asked as politely as one can ask why she’s a flop, by interviewer Dan Harris. It was hilarious and it’s my favourite interview of the year so far. You could see the indignation and you could hear the reticence to answer further questions. She was taken aback that Harris wasn’t pooping with excitement at being in her presence. And suddenly ‘sources’ are speaking on her behalf about what really happened: she’s really a brat and she really doesn’t know how interviews work.
The 30-year-old reality TV star walked off set because Harris deviated from the agreed-upon (and very serious) topic of stalking, the source says. The source says Hilton invited Harris and his camera crew into her home to talk about the recent string of celebrity stalkings. Hilton’s alleged stalker, James Rainford, was recently arrested and charged with attacking her then-boyfriend Cy Waits in April and stalking her outside her home in July. Harris began with questions about stalking but his questions quickly turned to other topics, including Kim Kardashian… The source says that particular question set Hilton off because just moments prior, Harris had gone on and on about the success (to the tune of $1 billion) of her fragrance lines and merchandising. ‘It’s ridiculous that he went on an on about her making a billion dollars, and then asking if she’s relevant,’ the source added. ‘She is upset. She felt ambushed.’ The source adds that Hilton resumed the interview after ABC told her they were cutting out the part where she walked away, but they did not. The source also says Hilton feels Harris did this only to get publicity for himself, which he’s accomplished. [TooFab]
