Well, shuffling in crisis mode, the socialite issued a statement to GLAAD: "As anyone close to me knows, I always have been and always will be a huge supporter of the gay community. I am so sorry and so upset that I caused pain to my gay friends, fans and their families with the comments heard this morning. I was having this private conversation with a friend of mine who is gay and our conversation was in no way towards the entire gay community. It is the last thing that I would ever want to do and I cannot put into words how much I wish I could take back every word."

The heiress also Tweeted, "I want to say how sorry I am. I can't fit the whole apology about the cab recording here, so please read it at @glaad tinyurl.com/9ewgyhc"

As for GLAAD's response? "Paris is right that HIV/AIDS can affect anyone. Over thirty years into the AIDS epidemic, better education around HIV/AIDS is still needed by much of the public and the media."
