Retiring the baby voice recognized across the world, a grownup 30-year-old Paris Hilton got serious about her sex tape last night with Piers Morgan. It's any daughter's nightmare to discuss a sex tape on national television with your mother sitting next to you, but since 1 Night in Paris helped Paris rise to fame in the first place, she's had to deal with it in public since 2004. Kathy Hilton cried as Paris talked about feeling betrayed by the ex she says released the tape and changed the public's perception of her forever. She says everyone has since viewed her as a slut when she really isn't.
In the years following the tape's debut, Paris has definitely made a lot of money off her image as the sexy party-girl heiress. It may not be all that she really is, but it seemed like who she wanted us to believe she was. Watch this interview and tell me, do you think Paris made the most of her scandal? Or do you think she could have gone a different direction like Kim Kardashian, the other socialite who found her way to fame with the help of sex tape that now feels like a footnote to the dominating Kardashian-family brand?
