This just in ladies and gentlemen, but for the sex tapes, Paris Hilton would have been a figure more in keeping with Princess Diana than well, Paris Hilton. I tried to think of a memorable rich girl trailer trash wanna be, but, in the end, Paris Hilton was..MUH GIRL. Now, read the derp and take in the mind of Paris.
The 36-year-old socialite sat down with Marie Claire magazine for an interview in which she discussed her career as well as her ups and downs in the public eye, including that infamous sex tape with ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon.
In case you forgot, Hilton sued Salomon for releasing the tape—which featured an 18-year-old Hilton and 33-year-old Salomon—without her consent. To this day, discussing the situation infuriates her.
“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,” she told the publication. “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.”
She continued, “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.”
In fact, that relationship eventually seeped into the way she viewed men in general, too.
“I would always need a boyfriend. I just felt like I needed to be with someone,” she explained about her younger self. “I feel like I cannot trust anyone. As soon as I start dating a guy, all of a sudden they become this guy that all the girls want.”
