Paris Denies NBC Post-Pen Pay-Per-Interview

paris_mugshot_060307.jpg

One of the few vaguely interesting media questions remaining in the Paris Hilton‘s jailhouse saga is who, aside from front-runner Barbara Walters, will land an exclusive interview with post-penitentiary Paris — and, more importantly, what will they pay? The New York Post reported that it’s Meredith Vieira, and NBC is paying “as much as $1 million” for the exclusive.

Paris’ camp sent out a statement last night denying Paris is being paid:

“Contrary to media reports, Paris Hilton is not being paid for any television interview. Nor is Paris being paid for any collateral, including video and photographs related to any television interview.”

Our money is still on Babs.
