Paris Hilton thinks Donald Trump’s assault accusers are just trying to be famous

U.S. Premiere Of "The Beguiled"

Back in May, I covered an interview Paris Hilton did with W Magazine, and I walked away from it thinking that she actually wasn’t that bad. I mean, she’s not GOOD. But she’s not pure evil incarnate either. The W piece was all about how Paris did all of it first, and she was actually the pioneer celebutante, the OG Famous-For-Being-Famous. Well, Paris is currently promoting her newest fragrances. She actually has $5 billion in sales just for her 25 fragrances. That’s why she’s been giving interviews lately, like that Q&A she did with People Mag several days ago. She also has a new feature in Marie Claire, and wow, does she come across as… well, I can’t put my finger on it. Like, she’s actually good at what she does, which is “be a celebrity” and “promote her brand.” But she’s still a sh-tty human being. Just wait for the political quotes! You can read the full MC piece here. Some highlights:

She’s not bratty anymore:“I want people to know that I’m grown-up. I’m a responsible businesswoman. I work very hard. I’m down-to- earth. Nothing has been handed to me.”

Her DJ career: She spins at months-long residencies in Ibiza, private events in Russia and Dubai, and even the odd bar mitzvah in Switzerland. She loves doing bar mitzvahs, she says brightly. “I don’t just DJ; I will also take pictures with everyone, make everyone feel good. Make the person who hired me look cool and be like a guest. Other DJs will just go in, won’t talk to anyone or take a photo, play songs for an hour, and leave.”

She doesn’t care about her critics: “People love to talk sh-t. I’m used to it, over the years. I love how, anyone I meet, I always change their mind right away. I’m not what people think. It’s fun to kind of laugh with it and say I’m in on the joke.”

The baby voice was introduced in 2003: It all started with the baby voice, the one she used “when I was little, anytime I wanted something.” The producers wanted the baby voice and then some. “I was really kind of shy in the beginning. So the producers just said, ‘Act spoiled, a kind of blonde airhead.’ I did that and then I realized it was a brand, so I played along with it. And when I felt shy, I would just do it. Now I actually think it’s cuter to be intelligent and to have a normal, low, sexy voice. Now when I hear the baby voice, I want to punch myself.”

She never made money on her sex tape with Rick Salomon: “That’s one thing that really pisses me off when I hear it, because I never, ever received one dollar from that video. That is the last thing that I would want out there…. It’s really hurtful, because my whole life I really looked up to Princess Diana, all these elegant, amazing women, and I feel like [Salomon] just took that all away from me. I could have been like that, but because of that tape, I will always be judged and thought of as whatever they say about me because of a private moment between my boyfriend and me. I wish I had never met him. That is actually the one regret in my life. I wish that I had never met that guy. I could not leave my house for months. I was so depressed, humiliated. I didn’t want to be seen in public.”

She considers herself a feminist and defines feminism this way:
“I just feel it’s about women’s empowerment and girl power, and I’m very into that.”

She didn’t vote for Trump: Contrary to news reports, she says she didn’t vote for Trump—she didn’t vote at all. And she doesn’t agree with everything he’s said. “I love the people here, and I don’t think that they should be talked about like that at all,” Hilton says of Trump’s claim that Mexico was sending rapists and criminals over the border. Still, she says, her old family friend, whom she calls “an incredible businessman,” will be a good president. “I’ve known him since I was a little girl. And he’s always been so nice, so respectful and sweet.”

On Trump’s grab ‘em by p-ssy statement: “I’ve heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I’m always around guys, and I listen to them speak.”

On the dozens of women who claimed that Trump assaulted them: “I think that they are just trying to get attention and get fame.”

[From Marie Claire]

In the first half of the article, I was actually sort of not-hating Paris – she was being nice to fans, she was doing a good job “performing” for all of the people who came out to see her, and she honestly didn’t sound that dumb. And then those quotes about Trump happened. Her defense of him is so… unnecessary. I realize that she would never do this, but why not just say “I don’t want to talk about Trump, actually, that’s not my brand.” Because that’s true – it’s not her brand. No one goes to Paris Hilton for political thoughts. This is why – because she would rather think that Donald Trump’s accusers are just making sh-t up to be famous, as opposed to believing that Trump is a pervert and a sexual assailant.

    there was a time i felt that if I ever met her on the street i would slap her. All her antics, her arrests , all that entitled bs.

    Yes, you take pictures with the guests, because I do not believe for a second you are an accomplished DJ and people book you because of your so called fame (damn those Europeans and their shitty taste).

    Also, she could have just said ‘he has always been nice to me, so it is difficult for me to comment on his political carreer’

    And the last sentence shows her girl power and femininist attitude – GTFO!!!!

    • WTW says:

      And I think people forget that she was caught on tape using slurs to insult blacks, Jews, anyone from Compton and people who attend public school. She’s not a nice person, which makes it perfectly understandable that she doesn’t take issue with Trump.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I couldn’t agree more. Just shut your gob and go away, Paris – you’re still the privileged, entitled, nasty bitch you’ve always been.

    • Lori says:

      As a European- generalizing much?

    • cass says:

      well, Americans made her famous and are keeping her famous. obviously you are now preoccupied by your new creation, the Kardashians
      ….so damn those Americans and their shitty taste?

  2. Clare says:

    Someone explain to me what her target demographic is – I mean, who is buying Paris Hilton branded shit?

    The Kardashians etc, I can understand because whatever they are they are, at least, current….is Paris Hilton still a thing?

    • L84Tea says:

      I don’t think Paris has been a thing since maybe 2007 or 2008?

      • booboocita says:

        She’s still huge in Asia — or so my Taiwanese friends tell me. I doubt she’s selling billions in the USA. I can see her perfume selling OK in drugstores and the like. Certainly not in department stores, though.

    • magnoliarose says:

      You would be surprised by how people we don’t care about are enormously popular in different countries or still have fans. I met a guy from Kuwait who was obsessed with Dukes of Hazard. Not the Jessica Simpson one either. I wasn’t even born when that was on, but he certainly knew the characters and actors. There are forgotten American shows overseas that are dubbed that I have never heard of yet the actors are vaguely familiar.

    • Joanna says:

      She is still very popular overseas and believe it or not I know a handful of young 30-somethings that follow her on insta and keep up with her…they grew up watching Paris on TV and thinks she’s fab

  3. M. says:

    Yeah no one would ever think trump would grab a woman by the genitals without permission…not like he ever admitted to it ……

  4. Deee says:

    First she thinks she could be like Princess Di then she thinks Trump is a good president and perv talk is fine…

    Gurl bai

    • milla says:

      Its her little world. She never said anything smart. Just ignore or laugh.

    • susiecue says:

      “I’ve heard guys say the craziest things ever, because I’m always around guys, and I listen to them speak.”


      • Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

        So she surrounds herself with guys, and not women friends, why? She wants to be the center of attention and she’s afraid of competition?
        And what’s the quality of those guys she keeps in her company? Men who don’t respect women.
        All that says more than enough about *her*.

    • Melissa says:

      “Gurl bai”

      ? Are you 12 years old? Or simply lacking in English skills?

  5. Lolo86lf says:

    It is farfetched to think that all of those women accused Donald Trump just to get attention and money out of him. It is illogical. I can’t believe she said that.

    • Konfused says:

      It’s not far fetched. Trump is a disgusting POS. However, what actually happened to all those women? They went radio silent after he was elected.

      • graymatters says:

        What can they do? Not only is he now legally protected by the office of the presidency, but enough people agreed with him to put him there. They must have thought that in any “he said she said” situation, they’d lose.

      • Melissa says:

        You ever heard of death threats? Blackmail? The girl that accused him of rape received death threats and was forced to withdraw her accusation. Much like some of the accusers of Cosby were.

  6. RBC says:

    Does anyone get the impression Paris and 45 hooked up at one time?

    • Tulsi 202I0 says:

      @Clare: IKR? Before you know it we’ll have Lilo weighing in on the Trump presidency.

      • M. says:

        I think she did already…I seem to remember Lohan saying something about how we should support him because he’s president

      • Tulsi 202I0 says:

        I just checked and indeed she did. She told people to stop bullying him on Twitter.

      • M. says:

        @tulsi 20210.
        Lindsay and Paris …two dumb peas in a stupid pod

      • magnoliarose says:

        Is anyone surprised? Lilo needs benefactors and Paris and Nicky were hanging out at clubs when they were underage with much older men.

    • Enough Already says:

      He’s been friends with her parents since she was a child and in an interview he said once that for a long time he knew she would be hot someday. *vomit*

  7. Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

    Nothing was handed out to her? Nothing? Never ever? I don’t think so. And I am not buying that she works so hard. She is maybe her own manager and then she has people doing the hard stuff *for her*. Does she even have a degree, btw?

    The thing about that “indecent” video her ex made *public* is that on one hand it is troubling and no woman or girl or boy or man in that situation deserve to be exposed like that, unless they agree to it without coercion and such (just adults, that is). BUT, then PH talks about those women who were assaulted by Monster Drumpf, and calls them famewhores? Really? She had her privacy violated herself. So after *that* statement, NO, I DO NOT FEEL SORRY FOR HER. I did feel sorry for her before that.

    • M. says:

      But trump was so nice to her, never tried to assault her…I guess that’s her logic

    • Anners says:

      I don’t mind her claiming to work hard, especially when compared to friends of her status/wealth. What I mind is that she doesn’t seem to realize that she didn’t exactly start out on a level playing field; that’s what makes privilege so ugly and insidious.

  8. Tulsi 202I0 says:

    Why is she popping up again? I thought her fifteen minutes were over years ago.

  9. detritus says:

    Naw. She’s barely more mature than Kylie.
    Let’s try to see another layer there Paris. You’ve hit on why you personally did something, now how does that fit into the world.

    This is why she still supports trump. She still can’t connect how studio execs asking her to play a stereotype that undervalued her skills and served her poorly, the women assaulted by trump, and his gross racial comments are all linked. She’s improved, but my judges score is still only 5/10 so hots.

  10. thisishisbananas AKA poorlittlerichgirl says:

    No. If they were trying to be famous, they would have followed through with Trump’s advances and make a sex tape of it. Boom. Instant fame. Paris knows the drill.

    • magnoliarose says:

      No she wouldn’t have done that. Tange is too vengeful and he is more useful for her as an ally.

  11. Beth says:

    Another spoiled rich kid, from a famous family, who had everything handed to her. She sounds like she’s a full of herself moron. She’ll never change

    • greenmonster says:

      Yes to all of this! She sounds stupid and full of herself through the whole interview, not just when it comes to Trump. She makes people look cool by taking pictures with them? It’s cuter to be intelligent and talk with a low, sexy voice? Paris Hilton has the maturity of a very dumb high school freshman. She is not saying she wants to display her intelligence, she thinks it’s CUTER to be intelligent.
      When it comes to her Trump quotes, I just have to say: STFU!

  12. L84Tea says:

    Yeah, um, why is this wonky-eyed lizard creeping out from the shadows so often lately? I thought we were rid of hearing about her and lately she keeps popping up. Go back to your plush, dark corner and take your Valtrex and stupidity with you.

  13. Merritt says:

    Paris is a garbage human.

  14. Catwoman says:

    Is there anyone out there who actually gives a flying f@@k about any of Paris Hilton’s opinions on anything? She never was relevant, but her 15 minutes were up years ago.

  15. Anare says:

    What else would you expect from her? She’s a fool.

    • Lady D says:

      She can’t be that stupid, she’s a multi billionaire. Personally she always struck me as a dumb, immature mean girl, I can’t believe she’s worth that much even with a trust fund. Was grampa Hilton so rich that all 4 kids were left billions, or at least hundreds of millions?

  16. QueenB says:

    She also called Trump good looking.

  17. boredblond says:

    What does she work hard at? The perfume is formulated, manufactured, marketed by a company..she only adds her name..then off to dubai with the other ‘yacht girls’ who go to the highest bidder..oh, brother..

    • SoulSPA says:

      What’s a “yacht girl”? Honest question.

      • Don't kill me I am French says:

        Celebrities paid to spend times and more (sex) with very rich rich rich guys on their yatchs

      • Washtuckna says:

        I was a sex worker at one point in my life, just as background. Being a whore is real work, hard but lucrative. I doubt she does this kind of work: 1) because it is very demanding 2) you put your client first lol 3) she is rich already.

  18. Leelee says:

    She thinks with her pussy like a certain type of man thinks with his dick.

  19. Onemoretime says:

    They just want to be famous?? The irony! Girl have several seats.

  20. SoulSPA says:

    Her remarks on Drumpf are such BS.Orange Fists Drumpf would hardly get any surge in popularity or whitewash his image. Bimbo Tang Paris is already a lost cause and rich enough to never care for anything. Why the heck did she have to come out with these remarks? More tries to deflect from problems in the country? The Hiltons and Drumfs laughing their a**** off to provoke more emotional distress?

  21. Croissant says:

    Her comments about Trump. Urgh. I’m surprised about what she said about the sex tape. I thought that since it was sold to Vivid , they also needed her consent?

  22. mkyarwood says:

    Unfortunately, that’s her upbringing talking. Her daddy is a member of the Drumpf club, whether she voted for him or not. She is surrounded by it, as she says. I’m pretty interested to read that producers asked her to play up her idiocy tho. That’s important information.

  23. Mazzie says:

    She really is a hole above her neck.

  24. Joh says:

    The only people who say : “nothing has been handed to me.” Have had an awful lot handed to them.

  25. Meg says:

    Paris believes everyone is jealous of her so of course the only reason someone would disagree or fo against someone she likes is because they want what she has. Pathetic and awful of her to belittle what an assault survivor goes through

  26. elle says:

    She’s just looking at it from her wonk-eyed lens. SHE did/would do anything to be famous, so why wouldn’t everybody else?

  27. perplexed says:

    Er, I think her DUI hurt her chances of being like Princess Diana as much as the sex tape (which I had forgotten about until she reminded me).

    • Dolkite says:

      Didn’t she get a DUI, get her license suspended, and then got in trouble like a week later for driving off to get a burger? I think that was when they put her in jail briefly and she threw a tantrum in the courtroom and had to drag her away.

  28. Veronica says:

    Oh God, shut up Paris. We’ve all agreed making you relevant in the first place was a mistake at this point.

  29. Catherinethegoodenough says:

    Why does she pose as if she’s falling over in every red carpet shot?

    • Veronica says:

      She probably hopes somebody will mistake it for a baby bump and give her a Star Magazine cover.

  30. LA Elle says:

    Second-hand stories to help solidify Paris’s reputation as a god-awful person:

    1. I knew a women who, in the early aughts, had managed to become a successful freelance make-up artist in Hollywood. She got hooked up with Paris Hilton, and working with Paris was so horrible that she quit working as a make-up artist and got a job in a restaurant because, according to her, at least the assholes leave after an hour.

    2. I knew another women who was active in LA’s gay scene by night and by day worked with teenagers – as a result of her day job, she was all about not judging people, not labeling, never commenting on body types (she was kind of exhausting, because, you know, I am a judgmental bitch).

    The only time I ever heard this woman make a disparaging comment about another woman was after she met Paris Hilton a couple of times. She criticized Paris’s body in insanely shallow terms and mocked her “sexy” image. And then she ended with: And really, that’s me being nice about her.

    Also: I’m taking Paris’s comments about those women as proof that she did indeed release that sex tape for attention.

  31. hogtowngooner says:

    I’m so tired of the Paris Hiltons/Gwyneth Paltrows of the world saying “I work hard. Nothing was handed to me.” What’s so wrong with acknowledging your privilege? She’d be NOWHERE if her name wasn’t Hilton, and that’s fine. You had a winning lottery ticket and you cashed in on it. Everyone knows it, just own up to it.

    Also, the idea that her sex tape made it impossible to be taken seriously is ridiculous. Plenty of celebrities have bounced back from scandals. The sex tape dropped right before The Simple Life premiered, in which she said and did the stupidest things. She also trotted around in skimpy outfits, falling out of club, flashing her hoo-ha. She’s entitled to do all those things, but you can’t act surprised when you act like a bratty princess and it becomes your reputation. You own all of that, honey.

    • LA Elle says:

      Not a fan of Gwyneth, but she’s not in the same category as Paris. Gwyneth at least works as an actress and has some talent. Gwyneth used her position to open doors. Paris just used her position.

      • Dolkite says:

        Paris Hilton not an actress? You mean you don’t count “The Hottie and the Nottie”? LOL You know, the movie she co-produced, where she starred as a woman so hot that when she jogged down the street, guys would follow her? But despite being super-hot, she was also super-kind and refused to date any guy unless he found a date for her unattractive friend?

  32. blonde555 says:

    Her short hair on top is laying akwardly against her super high up extensions, as rich as she is she still keeps frying her hair.

  33. TotallyBiased says:

    Like Drumpf, born on third base and claims she hit a home run.

  34. PoliteTia says:

    Wow! Paris Hilton is still alive. Who knew? Her comments should die much like her career.

  35. aenflex says:

    ‘Paris Hilton thinks…’ is not a good way to start a sentence.

  36. K says:

    They say narcissists always attribute their own motives to others. Which makes sense here.
