Paris Hilton Accused of Being Washed Up, Must Consult With Publicist

During an interview with Good Morning America, Paris Hilton was asked whether she thought the celebrity starlets of today — the Kim Kardashians of the world — had eclipsed her. Her new show on the Oxygen Network, The World According to Paris, isn’t exactly lighting up the Nielsen ratings, even if her perfume lines and other businesses are rolling in the cash.

The question was so offensive to Hilton that she had to walk away, consult with her publicist, and then return. When she was back on camera, she gave an answer about being in “this business” (being famous for nothing?) for 15 years and knows about the need for reinvention. The clip is above. What do you think of Hilton’s response? Kudos to her publicist for coming up with that one on the fly.
