Paris Hilton Walks Out on Interview After Reporter Questions Her Fame [VIDEO]
Fame may be fleeting, but as one reporter learned, never point that out to Paris Hilton. During an interview with ABC’s Dan Harris, Hilton stormed out when asked if her celebrity status might be waning.
The interview, which aired on ‘Good Morning America’ today, began routinely enough. Harris first asked Hilton about her experience with alleged stalker James Brian Rainford and her carefully-crafted onscreen persona. But then the reporter cited low ratings for her show ‘The World According to Paris’ and asked if she worries about her “moment having passed.”
Hilton immediately went silent, looked away and made an exasperated sound. Then the heiress quickly walked away from Harris and the cameras to have a tense conversation with her publicist.
Eventually, Hilton returned to the interview with the following response: “I’ve been in this business for 15 years now. So, it’s been a very long time and, just like any other businessperson or someone in industry, it’s always important to reinvent yourself and come up with new projects.”
