Quotables: Paris Hilton Was Reasonable for a Second, But the Moment Passed

7/2/2013 9:00 AM PDT, by Sarah Taylor

"It was the most painful thing I ever went through in my life. This was not just some random person, it was my boyfriend who I was with for a few years and who I really loved and trusted. It was such a violation of everything. ... I was so hurt and so in shock and it's been hard for me to ever really trust anyone again, especially guys, because it's the most horrible thing you could do to a person.''

--Paris Hilton on her ex-boyfriend, Rick Salomon, and how he almost totally destroyed her life by releasing that night-vision sex tape all those years ago, and on all of that horrible, awful fame that was a direct result.

The thing is, though, that she couldn't just leave it at that. She just could not leave well enough alone, and had to mess up any sort of credibility with one big, dumb statement, which was this self-righteous, hypocritical beast: 

“It’s very bizarre to me to see girls purposely doing it to launch a career, and I think it’s kind of pathetic and disgusting."

Girl! No! For a hot second we could have forgotten all of the "Simple Life" business and the jail and the smarmy mugshots and even the fact that you're dating a dude called River Viiperi, which maybe means "water snake" in some archaic dialect somewhere, and just meditate on the fact that you said something reasonable for the first time in a long time, if not in ever. But then to follow it by condemning your peers who have only followed in your pioneering footsteps? Back it up, friend. Back in the "Oh man" box you go.

Where did you learn how to be a journalist? You can retype a quote, that's for sure, but your ability to write a respectable sentence is lacking. Are you 15 or something?

Not that I'm any great fan of Paris Hilton, but I sort of understand what she's saying, even though she's still hypocritical. Paris has at least attempted to act in films and release music (emphasis on the word "attempted"), while Kardashian has done NOTHING else with herself. I do not count reality TV cameras following you around waiting for you to give the nearest dark phallus a BJ as accomplishing anything. Paris at least did something with her sex tape fame, even though those "somethings" happened AFTER the sex tape, which makes her statement above hypocritical. Still, I have at least a grain of respect more for her than Kardashian.

I think this isn't as hypocritical as it sounds. Sure she launched her career off the back of her sex tape but at the same time, she didn't intentionally release it herself purely for the purpose of furthering her career. She got thrown into a crappy situation but she's a businesswoman and she turned it to her advantage.
