Despite Publicist Pleading, Perez Hilton Will Never Be Booked on KTLA Again

 

Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton somehow messed up an appearance on Los Angeles TV station KTLA yesterday. Supposedly he showed up at the wrong time, wouldn’t wait around until his scheduled segment, and left the studio. The show wasn’t happy, especially after Hilton accused them of lying on his Twitter feed. Note to readers: Never call a reporter a liar. There are better ways to diffuse such situations.

“You asked to be here, we promoted you as being here, do what you agreed to do,” said Sam Rubin in the video posted above. After the drama, Hilton’s publicist called to ask if he could be on the show again. Rubin’s response, “Absolutely, when hell freezes over.”
