As someone who has lost thousands of hours of my life to watching reality TV, I’ll still never really understand the world’s brief obsession with Paris Hilton. Sure she’s pretty, rich, blonde and has a great knack for delivering catch phrases, and if you follow her around with cameras I’m sure it makes for entertaining television. But in the wake of her disastrous appearance on The View, where Barbara Walters ripped her a new one for complaining about her mandatory community service, I just don’t understand the appeal.
If Paris is trying to prove to people that she’s not a spoiled heiress she’s definitely going about it the wrong way. In a recent interview with E! News Hilton tried to defend her comments, “I think they hadn’t seen the show…You know, I’m not going to wake up at 6 in the morning and be all excited, ‘Yeah, I’m doing community service!’”
For someone who’s constantly been in the public eye it should be a no-brainer that when cameras are following you around you have to be on your best behavior. Especially if you’re trying to prove that you “work for your money.”
And complaining about your court-mandated community service, which you got for drug possession, when average, everyday people would have gotten jail time is just tacky.
