Paris Hilton is one of the celebrities who have received the worst treatment from the media in the past, and this is how the celebrity was responding to a specific interview with David Letterman from 2007 that went viral recently! During the latest podcast episode of This Is Paris, Paris and her sister Nicky Hilton Rothschild discussed how the businesswoman was treated in the early 2000s.
This type of behavior towards certain female celebrities has become a topic of discussion in the past more than ever since the documentary Framing Britney Spears was released.

After all, the project managed to highlight some of the sexist and very personal questions that some reporters asked female celebs at the time.
“There were certain socialmediagossips they were targeting. I would see that on myself, on Britney, Jessica Simpson. There was a certain type of girl they aimed at that they would never do that to a man, ”argued Paris on her podcast.
In relation to the interview in question, starting in 2007, David Letterman asked Paris about her jail time after the heiress breached her reckless driving parole.

Paris would give him very brief answers, as if to make it clear that she didn’t want to talk about it, but the host kept going anyway.
Even when she pointed out, “I went on with my life so I really didn’t want to talk about it anymore,” he continued.
Paris now remembers: “Basically, my PR team has made an agreement with him [topic] was taboo and he wouldn’t argue about it and we would only be there to promote my perfume and other business ventures. I felt that it was a safe place. So there shouldn’t be a single question but then he just kept pushing me and pushing me and I felt so uncomfortable and I was so upset. It was like he was purposely trying to humiliate me. During the commercial breaks, I looked at him and said, “Please stop this, you promised you wouldn’t talk about it.” … It was very cruel and very mean. ‘
After the interview, Paris remembers telling him that she would never go on his show again.
