Paris Hilton Explains ‘The View’ Controversy

Last week, while promoting her new series “The World According to Paris” on “The View,” Paris Hilton squirmed under questioning from Barbara Walters and then reportedly threw a fit backstage in response to the hardball interrogation. To recap, Walters simply asked the reality star why she was shown griping about her court-ordered community service (Hilton is seen complaining that “it sucks”) and why, if she did lots of charity work, as she claimed, she didn’t show that on her series.

Well, Hilton went on the offensive at the E! News studios. Asked by Giuliana Rancic what really happened on “The View,” Hilton dismissed Walters and the others as not fully informed. “I think they hadn’t seen the show,” she said. “They’d only seen a clip where I was complaining about my community service.” As for saying her community service sucked, Hilton said, “I was just being honest.” She also addressed her reported tantrum backstage (“Not true,” she said) and seemed to scold Walters at the end. “I really respect her as a journalist,” said Hilton. “I know she has to ask those questions. I think she should actually watch the show and then she’d understand more.” Watch the video and get the whole story for yourself.
