Paris Hilton seems to be on a dirty-laundry cleanse, only she’s raiding the closets of others and failed to purge her own precarious overflow. Hilton drew attention to an old Sarah Silverman joke aimed at The Simple Life star, in which the comedian referenced Hilton’s then-upcoming jail sentence, saying that in order to make the heiress “feel more comfortable in prison, the guards are going to paint the bars to look like penises.” While I understand the desire to demand an apology (and she succeeded in getting one) given that the joke was based on Hilton’s stolen sex tape recorded sans her permission, I’d like the accountability train to also include Paris Hilton’s racism.
If you’ll indulge me, I’d like to take a trip down memory lane. Paris Hilton has a history of racist, anti-Semitic, bigoted language — none of which was even moderately acknowledged in her This Is Paris documentary, which purported to be a thorough examination of her life. Some might remember that Paris Hilton’s storage locker became public after she failed to pay the fee, and that storage locker included damning videotapes of her repeatedly using the N word in addition to other horrific racist language. Many of the videos have been scrubbed, but some live on and are easily findable.
Journalist Neil Strauss (The Dirt) also documented a troubling encounter with Hilton in his book, Everyone Loves You and Your Dead: Journeys into Fame and Madness. According to Strauss, during an interaction with Hilton, heiress pointed to an unnamed actor in Saving Private Ryan, and said, “We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and I saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross.” Hilton denied the alleged interaction and threatened to sue, but I believe Strauss. Her use of the N word in the aforementioned video was far more difficult to deny given we can see it with our own eyes so her then-publicist issued a pathetic statement on her behalf. Here’s what it said:
“I’m not going to make any attempt to spin this. It happened. I’m not going to deny it happened. Each of us has used words we have regretted later. This was six years ago. She was 20 at the time. It was New Year’s Eve. She had been obviously drinking. She sincerely regrets using those words. She is not a racist or an anti-Semite.”
Speaking of anti-Semitic, there are also numerous reports of Paris Hilton taking aim at Jews. I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point. If you’re going to come for Sarah Silverman make sure own house is clean. And if you’re going to make a “documentary” about your life, you sure as sh*t better take ownership of your deplorable behavior. Because I’ve seen that documentary and it should be called — This is NOT Paris.
In one of the most disturbing videos I’ve seen in some time, Paris Hilton fell victim to a cruel prank curated by Ramez Wakel el-Gaw, who made the reality heiress think she was plummeting to her death on a small plane. The prank has been performed before, in which top celebrities believe their in Dubai for the opening of a new hotel and are instead escorted onto a plane for an aerial tour of the city. Minutes into the flight the pilot begins performing stunts to simulate a potential crash. Hilton screams in terror, and passengers start jumping off the plane with parachutes. If I were Paris Hilton, I’d take my huge pile of cash and sue the living sh*t out of Ramez Galal, with a very large claim for damages given that Hilton has to fly for work, and the trauma could potentially infringe her ability to travel and seek income. As for this business in general, it’s astounding how far people will go for their five minutes.
When Kim Kardashian responded to Jon Hamm’s comment calling her “stupid,” I thought, “Wow. She’s not as dumb as I thought.” In an interview with Elle UK Hamm said, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” In response, Kardashian said, “Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.” To be fair, I never actually thought Kim Kardashian was stupid. She’s one of the only reality stars (aside from Bethenny Frankel) to launch a multi-million dollar empire, and you never see her showing her crotch while stepping out of a car (yes, my standards are low). And furthermore, we don’t seem to mind when our friends get their foot in the door because of connections, yet we point fingers at famous people who do the same. It’s not what gets your foot in the door — it’s what you do once you’re there that’s important.
Paris Hilton’s interview with ‘Good Morning America’ proves why celebrities need to hand-pick interviewers that they trust. I understand that Paris Hilton might be a faux celebrity whose fame came from her family’s empire, but so are a lot of other very respected individuals that don’t get the same level of criticism. Ever heard of Christian Slater? His mother was a Hollywood agent who gave her son a ticket into the business, and he’s been acting ever since. Sure he might be a good actor, but would you ever know his name if not for nepotism? So when Paris Hilton sits down for an interview, is it really fair for the jackass (also known as Dan Harris) asking her questions to inquire whether she’s “washed up?” It’s a rude sneak-attack, and don’t invite someone onto your network if your only intention is to embarrass and humiliate them. And furthermore, it’s extremely unfair to blast her in a voice-over, especially when she has no final approval over the segment. This brings me to my original point — only do an interview with Barbara Walters. Other than that — stay away.
You know when you go through a painful breakup and you spend most of your time bad-mouthing your ex to anyone who will listen? Well, Paris Hilton is not in that club. Though the press often picks on her for being famous for nothing,” I have to give her major kudos for the way she handles her breakups. I imagine that if I was wronged on any level, I’d take great enjoyment from using the late-night circuit to bash my ex. As a guilt-ridden Jew, though, I’d certainly self-loathe shortly thereafter. Hilton appeared on Lopez Tonight, and Lopez showed a disturbing fight between Hilton and her then boyfriend, Cy Waits, in which Waits’ consistent jealousy reaches a boiling point that results in Hilton slapping him in the face. Clearly, these two were not meant to be. But instead of lambasting him, Hilton was kind, saying, that “the relationship just ran its course.” Who would think I’d ever call Paris Hilton classy? Watch the fight below.
For whatever reason, this blog has become very centered on Paris Hilton lately. Perhaps my brain is deteriorating. For those that don’t know, Hilton and Barbara Walters had a recent scuffle, which the press blamed on Barbara’s hard-hitting questions during their interview. Paris addressed the issue in an interview with E! below, and she handled it surprisingly well. Instead of firing back at the ladies of The View, she took the high road and said she respects Babs’ journalist skills, and the press blew the entire thing out of proportion. Who knew Paris could form actual sentences? Good job! Watch below. Continue reading “Paris Hilton Talks About Barbara Walters Scuffle — Handles it Well”
I might be the biggest fan of Paris Hilton’s new reality show. Though I picked on Paris Hilton in the first episode, I actually liked her more this time around, especially when I watched her concern over Brooke Mueller’s strange behavior. Throughout the course of the episode it becomes more and more clear that Brooke is struggling with her drug addiction, and the episode closes with a touching scene with Kathy Hilton. Watch below.

Either Reese Witherspoon was drunk at the MTV Movie Awards, or she had someone else write her material. Her speech was great, but it certainly seemed out of character. She said “like” about fifty times, and she clearly insulted Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, saying, “it’s possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show.” She also had a very good point about texting naked pictures, advising young girls everywhere to “hide their face.” Perhaps Blake Lively should take notes. Personally, I refrain from sending naked pictures altogether. No matter what the angle, my ass just looks to damn big. Watch Reese’s speech below.

Paris Hilton’s new show is an absolute train wreck — and I loved every minute of it. While I usually try to keep this blog positive, I’ll make an exception for Hilton, who is such an enigma of horribleness — I can’t take my eyes off of her. In case you make the mistake of avoiding the attached episode below, I’ll give you some nutshell plot points. First, she is friends with Brooke Mueller, who I actually felt sorry for throughout the episode. Unlike Paris, Brooke might have a soul, as evidenced by her relationship with her personal assistant/best friend, who Paris hates and Brooke loves. In an attempt to squash their tension, Brooke asks her assistant to talk to Paris. Paris won’t engage, followed by a voice-over which says, “is this an episode of Gossip Girl? As if cornering me in the stairwell is going to make me like her more.” Later in the episode Paris has a fight with her boyfriend, Cy Waits, who discovered inappropriate text messages between Paris and another guy. And just when I thought her sadness over their fight provided evidence that she’s a human being, my hopes were squashed by another horrific voice-over comment, where Paris says, “[my] baby voice has always gotten me what I wanted. But I don’t know if it’s going to work this time.” Apparently, it did work. Cy forgives her just as the episode ends. Man — I sure can’t wait for next week (and no, I am not being sarcastic).

When you watch the clip below, you’ll understand why there is not much to say about Paris Hilton’s new reality show. In short, she’s just as terrible as you might expect. But in an effort to avoid negativity on The Dishmaster, I will quote the great Howard Stern who recently discussed Paris Hilton on his show. Stern said, “She is a c*unt. She’s the worst human being on the planet. She’s not even a human. She’s just so heinous. She has no inner soul. It’s sickening. She’s a monster.” And there you have it. Watch below and judge for yourself. Continue reading “Clips From Paris Hilton’s Reality Show — She’s Still Heinous”
