An All-New Paris?

posted by acunningham

parisandlarry.jpgI failed to watch Larry King interview the new-sprung Paris Hilton last night, but here’s what the New York Times said. Sounds like Paris’s resolve to reform will wear off with time. But I’m still rooting for her.
After she said she read the Bible in her cell every day, [King] asked her to name her favorite passage. Ms. Hilton hesitated, looked down at her notes as if hoping to find an answer, then conceded that she didn’t have a favorite…
Mr. King did look surprised when the star of the reality show, “The Simple Life,” denied, with a straight face, ever abusing alcohol or taking drugs or living a hedonistic lifestyle. “I just like to go out and have fun with my friends, “ she said. “ I’m an Aquarius. We’re social people.”
Ms. Hilton wasn’t particularly penitent about her traffic infractions, claiming she was not aware that her license was suspended either time she was stopped by police. She did, however, vow never again to drink and drive. She also said she has tired of her party-girl image, and promised to raise money and awareness for worthy causes.
At this point, what Paris Hilton really needs is a thoughtful, spiritually-activated PR agent (like Arielle Ford, Debbie Ford’s sister), and an ongoing, therapeutic relationship with someone sincerely religious but a tad show-biz-y, someone like Deepak Chopra. Deepak, can you call her?

Sounds like getting connected with worthy causes is a great idea for her. Lots of celebrities (Bono, Angelina Jolie, for example) have had life-changing, outlook-enhancing experiences by seeking to use their celebrity for social good.
I guess the question is: what cause wants Paris Hilton as its poster child?

I found what Paris Hilton said to be more sincere then not,there were somethings she could havae admitted,but my question would be then who are we that she should live up too?;like she said her family knows her and all about her and whats true and not true.I believe a person can have a overnight transformation,look at Paul on the damascus road?God struck him blind one day and the next Paul was preaching for God!!And look at all his teachings he has blessed us with?!
I dont like all the skeptics out there talking about her and not encouraging her only puttin her down and thinking she will never change.I dont think she was this god awful person in relation to others in hollywood that have done more then she probaly will never do..terrible,the media justs carries on with too much foolishness and cant find nothing more worthy to talk about.Just like Anna Nicole,they run on about her.But God always causes good to come from what we perceive as bad and I pray for her that she will find herself and God more important then the millions she has aquired.

Brigitte,
I agree – I think there should be more focus on encouraging Paris – rather than criticizing her… however… I watched part of her interview with Larry King, and I did not feel she was genuine or sincere at all. She came across as almost smarmy, in my opinion, and didn’t really give any answers with any substance. Perhaps she should have waited a bit longer to deliver her first interview – at least until she had some concrete plans in place.
I am still really pulling for her to make a change, but based on that interview, I just don’t get the impression that she means it.
She has the opportunity here to re-invent herself – quite frankly, I think most of us are bored with her party-girl antics… if she really did make a change, that would be the best thing for her career.
Only time will tell… I agree – get that girl a spiritually-activated team of people and lets see some real change!
Namaste,
Jenn

To find out what she was really thinking go to reversespeech.com and check out the reversals done on this interview she did. THE SUBCONSCIOUS CANT LIE :)

As much as I try to avoid everything Paris, a lot filters through my defenses. The photo of her crying in the police car aroused some tender feelings; for the first time I could see her as a human being rather than a…what is she? A poser, I guess. I caught a few minutes of Larry King and saw a different Paris. I hope she will follow through on her her proclaimed desire to use her time and resources to help others.

Paris Hilton makes me dislike the French. If whe were named Brooklyn, I’d dislike NY.
I guess the name and poor behavior conjures images of a vapid lifestyle that is accepted and emulated.
I don’t feel bad for her. I feel for us and the young kinds that are all Paris all the time. A country of Paris BIMBO’s.
Wish Paris was in Iraq. Maybe then the kids in this country would know we are at war. Wish Paris could read. Maybe them she would have something to think about besides HER PEOPLE NOT TELLING HER SHE COULD NOT DRIVE! She has to be a jerk she signed the papers. How can she sign something she did not read? PLEASE. Give it a rest.
What is wrong with the media?

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-
