Paris Hilton saying she would be in the conversation with people like Princess Diana if it weren’t for her infamous sex tape is by far the dumbest thing that’s ever come out of her mouth.
In a recent interview with Marie Claire magazine, the former reality television star said that she would have gone on to be just like the late princess if it weren’t for the sex tape with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon.
“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,” Hilton said.
Paris Hilton has said a lot of dumb shit in her life, but this statement puts them all to shame in my book. You would be hard-pressed to find a quote from the five years of filming “The Simple Life” that’s dumber and more ignorant than this one right here. The fact that Paris Hilton was in a reality television show alone should keep her from even breathing Princess Diana’s name, but “No, it was the sex tape that ruined [her] chances.”
Princess Diana essentially defined the word elegant and pretty much everything Paris Hilton has done since she’s been in the spotlight–sex tape aside–couldn’t be farther from that definition. (RELATED: Paris Hilton Promotes Her New Lingerie Line With Seductive Photos)
After the sex tape, titled “One Night In Paris”, elevated Hilton to fame, the hotel heiress starred on “The Simple Life” alongside an equally un-exemplary Nicole Richie.
Now, Paris would argue, she’s a much better role model which is somewhat true, but only because of her achievements, not her behavior.
The 36-year-old Hilton is now a successful entrepreneur who owns 35 boutiques, three hotels, a fragrance company, and recently launched her own lingerie line. However, that doesn’t stop the sex tape star from gallivanting around the world, throwing her outrageous wealth in everyone’s face, and dressing scantily as she does it.
All you need to do is look at Paris Hilton’s latest Instagram photos to see just how laughable her Princess Diana comparison really is.
And just about now Princess Diana is rolling around in her grave.
