Paris Hilton has opened up and shed a tear over the infamous sex tape she made eight years ago.
Paris Hilton has finally spoken up about the elephant in the room and the thing that made her famous… her sex tape. The heiress was asked about the 2003 sex tape she made with then boyfriend Rick Salomon on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. She told Morgan the leaking of her private home movie was “the most embarrassing, humiliating thing that has ever happened to me in my life.” Girl, it still made you really famous.
The reality television star spoke of the treachery she felt after Salomon, someone she was intimately close with, released the tape without her permission. She said, “I just felt so betrayed, this was not some random guy, this was someone I was with for a few years. I can't believe he would do something like that to me.” To really add to the awkwardness of the interview, Paris’ mom sat next to her tearing up as her daughter spoke of her sex tape past.
Paris says she is still marred by the experience and spoke about the embarrassment and stigma of being that girl who did that tape. She told Morgan, “Now when people look at me, they think I'm something that I'm not, just because of one incident one night with someone I was in love with. I'll never be able to erase that. I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children.”
Sounds just like a certain Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter, right?
