Paris Hilton, whose new reality show “The World According to Paris” premieres tonight on the Oxygen Network, stopped by CNN Studios in Los Angeles with her mother Kathy to chat it up with CNN’s Piers Morgan.
Paris dished about a lot: her future, her love life, her brand (she makes $10 million a year from it) and yes, that sex tape she did 10 years ago that made her, well, famous!
Hilton says she really has learned from her mistakes and that her new reality show will clear up the “many misconceptions” people have about her.
As much as there’s a part of me that thinks, “A Paris can never change her stripes,” I do truly believe anyone is capable of changing if they’re doing it for the right reasons. Paris has historically shown us that she makes a lot of her decisions for all the wrong reasons so the jury is still out for me on this, but there’s always hope. Good luck, Paris!
So what do you think? Can Paris Hilton transform herself? Tell me below.
Another reality star who knows a lot about getting famous from a sex tape: the newly engaged Kim Kardashian. Today there are reports that Kim may take her fiancé’s last name. That’s right – Kim K. may ditch “Kardashian”! But is that a good idea?
I think it’s a tough call. Just look at the brand she has built on that name! And “Kardashian” really does have a certain phonetic sound to it. So I don’t know. Maybe she should use it professionally? Hyphenate? We’re debating this on "Showbiz Tonight."
Also, we're airing part two of our not-to-be-missed "Showbiz" Newsmaker interview with Lady Gaga! She's having a huge week – already selling more than a million copies of her new album “Born This Way.” Tonight, Gaga reveals where she goes from here, what she really thinks of her critics and clues about who she may work with on upcoming albums.
