Paris Hilton and her mother are trying to broker a deal with the major networks for a post jail interview, so far it looks like the networks are showing the good sense not to mention the good taste not to touch this deal. It had been reported that NBC had initially offered the Hiltons one million dollars, today NBC took that offer off of the table. ABC had also made an offer of one hundred thousand dollars for the interview, but when NBC reneged on their deal ABC removed their offer as well. My hat is off to the networks for their restraint, for a business that makes its living by televising sensational material this must have been a tough decision.
My opinion of Paris Hilton can be summed up as being a spoiled rich slut wannabe celebrity, and trying to capitalize on her infamy only reinforces that. What surprises me about this is that her mother is reputed to have been instrumental in trying to broker the interviews, I would think that she would want to distance herself from what her daughter represents, she obviously doesn't need the money.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
