Just in case anyone was wondering whether Paris Hilton is still a self-absorbed, over-entitled bag of herpes with absolutely zero redeeming qualities, the answer is yes. Yes, she is. And apparently she decided to make that abundantly clear to the staff of The View after Barbara Walters called her on her shit, according to Page Six:
Walters criticized Hilton for complaining in the first episode about her 200 hours of community service. She also questioned Hilton’s claims of doing charity work and her desire to help other female prisoners — neither of which is seen on the Oxygen show. Walters asked, “Why not present that side of yourself, if indeed it exists?”
Afterward and off-camera, both Paris and her father, Rick, berated a “View” producer, upset at the tone of the interview. A rep for the show confirmed the incident. Hilton’s rep had no comment.
Yes, clearly, these producers should have given Paris Hilton, superstar, a proper reception. We’re talking about a powerhouse of talent whose new reality show brought in less viewers than Aubrey O’Day whose only claim to fame right now is having a ham-shaped vagina, so show a little respect, people. Popeater reports:
“Paris’ second season on that MTV show where she found a new friend was a disaster and she hasn’t been able to sell a magazine cover since the Kardashians arrived,” a TV insider tells me. “If the numbers remain less than the 400,000 that tuned in last week she could get pulled off the air.”
By comparison, the March debut of singer Aubrey O’Day’s show drew 724,000, and 1.7 million viewers tuned in for the premiere of the most recent installment of ‘The Bad Girls Club.’
“This could be the last nail in the coffin,” a senior marketing manager tells me. “She has been replaced by Teen Moms and Snooki. She would have been better off not doing a new reality show at all then doing one that proves no one cares.”
Did anyone else jump up and down and squeal after reading “last nail in the coffin?” Uh, yeah, me neither. *crushes beer can on forehead* I don’t even know what a Jon Hamm is! WOOT WOOT WOOT!
