Paris Hilton was not a happy camper during her interview with Dan Harris, which aired Wednesday morning on Good Morning America. The socialite either didn’t know how to respond or didn’t want to, when it came to questions about her sinking celebrity status and the low ratings for her new show The World According to Paris.
“The celebutante marketplace has become rather crowded since Paris Hilton burst onto the scene in the late 1990s,” Harris said in the beginning of his segment on GMA. “People like Hilton’s former protégé and sometimes ‘frenemy’ Kim Kardashian have been eating up a lot of the oxygen, with hit reality shows and a mountain of magazine covers.”
“Do you worry at times that the people who have followed in your footsteps, like Kim Kardashian, are overshadowing you?” he asked Paris.
“No, not at all,” a visibly upset Paris replied.
“Do you ever wonder… about your moment having passed?” he continued, hitting the same spot.
Paris immediately glanced at her publicist and walked off camera, to discuss the interview.
Harris called their meeting “a long, heated conversation with Hilton and her publicist.”
But taping did eventually resume.
Paris made a point to say, “I don’t want all of this being used.” But unfortunately her request wasn’t granted.
When she did return, Paris made the following statement: “I’ve been in this business for 15 years now, so it’s been a very long time, and just like any business person or someone in industry, it’s always important to reinvent yourself.” This is the kind of exposé that really gets the Pulitzer people drooling.
