Here’s the scene: Paris Hilton is doing a typical round of press interviews. It’s early, and after only a few hours of sleep, she’s on the phone with the radio show Bob and the Showgram. The questions are pretty straightforward. What’s her new project? How’s the CD coming along?
Then, the DJ decides to push the otherwise rather boring Q&A to a whole new level. His question? “You know, a lot of people — Kim Kardashian, other folks — started with the sex video. You did too. Do you ever wish that you didn’t do that back in the day?
In the moment, the 32-year-old socialite keeps her head about the obviously touchy topic. “Well, that was not anything to do with me,” she replies. “I just dated a person who’s a very sick man [co-star Rick Salomon] who did that.”
After the awkward exchange, another DJ tries to do damage control, saying Paris was famous long before 1 Night In Paris. Things proceed somewhat normally but later, after signing off and wishing the crew a good day, the heiress lets loose — the whole time thinking she’s turned off her phone.
“That guy was a f—king a—hole. I’m never doing that show again,” she says to another man, who says he’s “already put in a call to them.” “They didn’t even mention the song,” she continues as the DJs back in the studio laugh at the mistake. Awkward, much?
