Paris Hilton thought her boyfriend would propose months earlier

Paris Hilton appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote her new podcast, This is Paris. Although it has the same name as her recent documentary, it doesn’t sound like the two are connected, but I’ll discuss that a little more below. The first thing Jimmy did was congratulate Paris who, as we know, recently got engaged to Carter Reum. Jimmy asked if Paris was expecting it and Paris said no, that Carter had successfully tricked her into believing he wasn’t going to ask – twice!

We went on another trip a few months ago to Bora Bora for our anniversary. He had this really romantic dinner set up. The whole dinner I was expecting a ring to come out. At the end dessert came and I thought there would be a ring in the cake, there was nothing. After dinner I was like ‘to be honest, I was a little bit bummed. I thought you were going to propose. [He said] ‘when I do it, it’s going to be incredible.’

We went to this really beautiful private island two weeks ago. He said there was a photo shoot happening. To make me feel like it wasn’t happening he said ‘if you’re not ready in time, we can just chill, do it another day.’ So then I didn’t think it was happening. He tricked me. We went down to the beach and he got down on one knee, asked me to marry him. It was one of the most romantic moments of my life.

You can click the link above for the video. I didn’t embed it because Jimmy has to stop interrupting his guests mid-sentence. I think he’s trying to zhuzh up their stories, but it ends up making the whole discussion disjointed. So I guess I owe Paris an apology. I said that with the set up they had, there was no way in hell she didn’t know Carter was proposing but it sounds like maybe she just thought she was heading off to a photoshoot. And, I guess if you ever needed an excuse to have a photoshoot everywhere you went, it was so you could be surprised by an engagement when that time came. I am happy for Paris, she so desperately wants the fairytale. It’s just hard to repeat her hyperbolic language every time I cover her engagements. Let’s hope this is the real deal this time.

Paris does speak about the recently released This is Paris doc in her interview with Jimmy. She discussed, again, that she created the “dumb blonde” persona as a protective device to hide form the trauma she experienced at the Utah rehabilitation school she was sent to. They also discussed her recent testimony in Utah to pass legislation to prevent this kind of abuse. Paris is not a perfect person, but I applaud her strength to fight so what happened to her won’t happen to others.

Her podcast, which is co-hosted by her friend Hunter March, sounds like it is more of a general interview format with Paris talking to her famous friends. I don’t doubt they’ll touch on deeper topics, but Paris’ description was “more like two friends having a conversation.” It’ll probably be successful. Paris’ fans feel deeply connected to her and will keep it afloat. And it’s a smart move for Paris as well because she has a history of giving her fans her phone number. Since she hopes to start a family, diverting calls to the podcast and away from her private world would be a safe transition.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Paris. Really hope that she’s happy.

  2. Emily says:

    I’ve always like Paris. Like Britney, she was treated irresponsibly by the 00s media — she was basically a baby when the sex tape was released without her consent. Most of the coverage didn’t focus on that but slut shamed her and treated her like a joke.

      This. I can feel bad for Paris the child – her parents were terrible parents who then tries to “fix” their hard partying teen with an abusive school and then threw her and her into the spotlight at the first chance.

      Adult Paris can go. She had multiple DUIs from her late 20s,not childhood or young adulthood (thank god no one got hurt). She’s a racist (I wonder what Nicole Richie has to say about a certain N word that Paris loved to the point that they aren’t friends anymore – google it). She’s a known and open Trump supporter, she says because they’re “family friends”

      I say again, sympathy for the child she was. The adult can go away.

      • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

        Did not know about the racism and Trump support. Soft spot is no more.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      right there with you, and Oh_Hey laid it out perfectly.

      are we all forgetting that she’s a bigot who used the N word as easily as she said “that’s hot”? and that she was a bully herself – remember “firecr*tch”? and the DUIs? and that she VOTED FOR THE ORANGE MENACE?…

    • Jules says:

      Big nope.

  4. Golly Gee says:

    The contrivance of the photo posed with her holding open the slit in her dress and bending her leg feels awkward and cringey.

  5. Darbie10 says:

    While I am sorry she suffered in boarding school, it’s driving me crazy that she is not being held accountable for her racism! There is video footage of her using the n-word. Nicole Richie dropped her over the racism. She is allowed to make a documentary to explain her side of her early aughts persona, but she is doing now what she did then, anything to stay relevant. I’m not buying she is decent without a hint of self-awareness and an apology.

  6. Mina_Esq says:

    I’m glad she’s happy, but I continue to question the wisdom of her life decisions in light of her continued support of Trump. Ah well.

  7. Catwoman says:

    I have always found her annoying. I also think her “faking the dumb blonde” is bs. If she faked it, why does she still do it? So here’s to engagement number…is it 4 or 5? Hard to keep up.

    • Darkmatter says:

      I hope she kept every engagement ring. Not for the money, she obviously has more than enough, but for the hilarity of seeing them placed in one long row. Like hunting trophies but with bling.

  8. Jules says:

    The super-smart-savvy-businesswoman-pretending-to-be-dumb little game is a joke. Why is she still in the news? She is really using this boarding school experience (which does sound horrible) to reform her image and I ain’t buying it. And it sounds like her fiance just didn’t want to propose and she forced him into it.

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I can’t with her arrested development.

    • Mette says:

      Paris knows she can easily be the next celeb to be cancelled, based on the past racist and crappy things she’s said and done. All it takes is one tweet to take her down

  10. LizzyM says:

    Seriously it’s 2021, if she’s so adamant to being engaged she can just propose herself – why should it always be the guy proposing?

    I am married and neither of us proposed per say – we discussed getting married, both liked the idea and just did it.

    • Lex says:

      I proposed to my boyfriend, he loved it. A lot of people were shocked/horrified I did this. Ridiculous.

  11. Lissdogmom02 says:

    I wish her the best. However I find it hard to believe she didn’t plan the proposal or have her assistant let him know what she wanted,

  12. Lex says:

    Ladies if you want to get married and your partner does too, then just ask them! Why wait around?
