'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Can Paris Hilton transform herself?

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.

See you on "Showbiz Tonight," exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!

    I watched this puppet give a sloppy and it was as entertaining as going to work. I hope her skills have increased considering she is only famous because of that snooze-a-thon $ e x tape she had. I wouldnt mind walking on that hardwood floor though at least once.

    Yes, I think Paris can change. Why not? Just because she has had a bad history of reckless mishaps in her life, which remind you, everyone has some type of regretful moments in his or her life. More then likely those regretful moments have helped you to grow and change for the better. Gezz everyone is so quick to judge. I wish her the best. People need to stop being so judgmental. Anything is possible.

    Paris is who she is , a not very intelligent celebutant who is making loads of $ off her "brand"(aka. her famous name) & her "mishaps" ! She & Nicole(Ritchie-Madden) popularized the whole Reality TV trend of "hey we're somebody, lets do a TV show". Now we are deluged with nobodies who think they're somebody on TV! I already know the world Paris lives in. Priveliged!! I don't need to see that when I'm struggling to make ends meet! Paris should team up with Heidi Montag-Pratt & Snooki, that would be a show worth watching! They're of the same ilk & could do the 21st century version of the "3 Stoogettes" ! Hilarious!!

    Paris, the Jersey shore, the Hills, the real housewives. Sigh no wonder this country is going downhill fast, they have to find people to put on TV that are dumber and more pathetic then the losers that watch these shows. TV used to pander to the lowest common denominator, now since most of the public cannot do basic math they can only subtract any intelligence and with a performer or show might have. Seriously we have a show where CEOs are shocked to find they are out of touch and working as a grunt is hard work and the folks that do it are not recognized??? We deserve train wrecks like Paris and the terrible programming we have nowadays. It's sad but true...
