Paris Pockets $1 Million for Post-Prison Interview

Paris Pockets $1 Million for Post-Prison Interview

NBC has agreed to pay as much as $1 million for Paris Hilton‘s first post-jail interview, which will appear on The Today Show. Sources tell the Post Meredith Vieira will conduct the sit-down the day after Hilton is released from jail.

Normally co-host Matt Lauer conducts high-profile interviews like these (his interview with Prince William and Prince Harry aired earlier this week) but because of “disparaging” remarks he’s made about her, Vieira will step in.

WILL YOU WATCH Paris’ tell-all interview on The Today Show?

    Hell no I am not going to watch. And NBC should be shamed for paying her that much. They are cutting good journalist because they need to cut expenses.

    And the bitch…I mean the rich just keep getting richer.

  • TiaBia

    …and the b*tch, I mean the rich just keep getting richer!!!

  • Sarah

    They shouldn’t! They should just leave her alone! If they leave her alone, then maybe she will actually learn her lesson!

  • Sarah

    Oh and needless to say…she’s ALREADY rich and she does not need $1 Million. Think of all the starving children in the world and they give the money to someone who has just been in jail for a term that was shorter than she should’ve received.

  • [Famous]

    The biish has been in jail for a min now, and she still gets press all day every day. Paris, her mother and father are, and will be pimping this for along time.

    1 million for a craptastic interview which everyone but myself will watch.

  • Milli

    Going to cahnge her way when she is out of jail my a*s! This w*ore never gonna change. Now if she takes this money and donates it to some worthy cause like clean drinking water project in Africa or AIDS research or something like that I will believe she’s changed. But no. She will take this money, head to some more talk shows and magazines, grab some more money, grab couple of guys,throw a tacky party where she would dance on table tops,then head to Kitson and Louis Vuitton to by more clothing, shoes and bags and then party some more. All this time we gonna see her famew*ore mother Kathy by her side encouraging her to party some more. She is a disgrace to womankind and she is going to stay that way. Amen!

  • Brit

    This is a joke, right?

    It should all go to charity!!

  • brass

    There is no way I am going to watch this! And SHAME ON NBC for stooping to that level!! Paris is a rich brat who paid for her mistakes, why do we even care?!!? I am embarassed that our media has bought into this juvenile celebrity paparazzi gossip!

  • Maria

    America has become a sick society. How can someone who has done 23 days in jail have a 1 million dollar contract ?? While very serious issues around the world are taking place, the American people just seem to be only interested by Donal Trump vs. Rosie O’Donnell, Anna Nichole Smith saga, Paris Hilton, Nichole Ritchi, Britney Spears, and all of the likes. And don’t tell me that it’s only the tabloids because when you have a show like Larry King Live that dedicated over 20 shows to the Anna Nichole Smith saga, I say something is terribly wrong in America. I subscribed to cable TV here in Europe and I am just so disappointed by what I am able to see from the American channels. Larry King Live used to have a serious and respectable reputation here in Europe but not anymore. Tune in his show and instead of watching a serious interview with a serious guest, you will be in for an hour of gossip and speculation. And the worst part of it, is that Larry King seems to really enjoy it. I think it is time he retires as his is killing the good reputation he once had in Europe.

    I’ll just catch the summary on your blog Jared!

  • julia weinstein

    Only in America…

  • gina

    It realy should go to charity!

  • Jill

    If NBC has $1 million to give to Paris Hilton who already has enough money then they should be giving that money to the less fortunate or for some worthy cause. That is just sickening to think that People will pay such huge amounts to wealthy people rather than give to the ’2005 flood victims.

  • Chanel

    ugh, Shame on NBC for “awarding” Paris.

  • DEE

    H.E.L.L NO!



  • Bliss

    Jared-What did Matt Lauer say about Paris?

  • Maria

    I’ve lost all respect for NBC!! What a waste of TV space!!

  • Maria

    Oh, forgot. NO, NO AND NO!! I am NOT going to watch.

  • http://justjared Donna

    Hmm that girl had better give all the money to charity!! She said she was going to change so let’s see. I bet she buys a few outfits with it!!

  • littlechickadee1127

    I will not watch it. But lets see if Paris lives up to her famous last words of wanting to do charity work..if she pockets the cash she is a liar. She needs to donate that cool million to a charity of her choice…then PERHAPS she might gain back what very little respect people have for her.

  • HottieTottie

    Why on earth does anyone care what this ho/twit/no talent does?

    NBC’s stock just went severely down in my book.

  • Celene

    I dont remember hearing anything Matt Lauer said about Paris Hilton that was so offensive. I mean he was on Larry King, and as I remember he only said he just doesnt understand the whole fascination american public has with celebrities, and I dont think he said anything about Paris Hilton. Anyway, I hope this isnt true, cause I woud lose all the respect I have for NBC. I mean SERIOUSLY they gotta be kidding me.

  • cdn

    maybe she is doing a jolie-pitt stunt and will donate it…

  • Mmmmm

    Dont watching the Today and NBC .. well except for the office ;o)

  • yu crzy

    Why do they have to pay Paris anything? She is an attention whore and would have done it for free.

    Veira is going to do a whiny crappy interview like Ann Curry gives for Jolie. Basically a free blowjob.

  • angelinammm

    what did we expect?

  • http://JustJared MontanaBlue

    Unbelievable! No, I will not watch. She will never go away now, just when we got rid of her for awhile, “they” are trying to bring her back and throw her in everyone’s face again. Crap just keeps coming back.

  • a realist

    I will not watch it. A million dollars to someone who has more money than she knows what to do with. And people balk at giving a crumb to a hungry baby,

  • nobody cares

    I would rather watch Matt Lauer go off on Paris. Unless Viera plans on a real hard hitting interview. Not interested. But I would watch a dirty,hot,steamy, prison lesbo sex tape. A little S&M and gueard action would be a jackpot. Paris is a porn star and should stick to it.

  • nobody cares

    Maybe Viera should console poor weepy Paris…Then accidently touch her nipple…funky music ensues and hot kissing, grinding mounds etc… I would watch that, an interview not interested. Paris=porn star.

  • Joh Mahma

    I’ll be sure and NOT watch and I’ll be sure and make note of sponsors which I’ll not only AVOID, but I’ll let people know who those sponsors are.

    It’s ABOUT TIME we take this loser off the map.

  • Michael C

    Matt Lauer should not have a career.

  • John Mirror

    will i watch her saying ‘i was, like, shocked, it was, like, awful, but i, like, know i was, like, wrong, so i will, like, change’? no, thanks.
    BTW, no one is going to change unless he understands his guilt and where everything had gone wrong. i highly doubt paris understands where she had made a mistake – she’s too arrogant for all this prosaic – in her opinion – stuff. i can’t say im sure in it, but i think it’s rather this way. maybe she will be a little more careful with the whole DUI deal, i mean, not driving where are all those police posts and stuff, or maybe giving them a lot of money. anyway, who cares? i don’t give a shit about paris sitting or not sitting in a jail, but im really disappointed that this $1 million is wasted not on a charity, but on a useless and untalented scummy skank.

  • John Mirror

    the last ***** is a ‘sk*nk’, if you are interested.

  • required

    i hope absolutely NO ONE watches it so nbc will realize they just blew 1 million on 1 whole brain cell.

  • bobby

    Ugh! She probably drove drunk & went to jail just to make more money. Sickening. Isn’t she rich enough? I thought her “soul” had something to learn from this experience????

  • Fucking Paris!

    Fucking Paris! Hell’s bell’s. I would not have any problem being, in prison for 23 days or, what ever the hell she had to stay in for, a million bucks to, discuss it in an interview after the prison stay. Easy million to me.
    Her ass is lucky! Geez! the rich only get richer and the poor get more poor! Paris, stuck a gun up you’re pussy and pull the trigger okay?

  • cb

    nope, i’m not gonna watch! i hope the ratings for this “special” are in the toilet

  • Amy

    Good job, pay a bitch for going to jail. FOR DRUNK DRIVING

  • Amy

    If I didn’t need my scrubs season 7 I’d write off the network altogether.

  • OnlyIf

    I don’t care to watch it.

  • Sophie

    I’d watch if I lived in America!

  • L

    There’s no way I would ever watch that. Why reward someone for being an asshole. How can NBC news maintain any dignity and/or credibility if they do this…

  • love and hate

    Well, well, well, Im with you all guys, I think NBC will not do this if they know no one would like to watch the interview. Hey men, to be honest,I like paris in her outer look but I dont like her how the way she is. In other side, Its nice to see a rich individual having sex in the video right?. This one makes the thing different from other starving ladies in the sex video heheheh. Anyway, NBC knows whether you like Paris or not, you still wanna watch and listen to her just to know what happened to her inside the Prison. Theres a lot of question you wanna know at least. Well, evryone knows shes rich and had good looks. Was she raped inside the prison by the lesbian guard?, hahaha. Was she treated VIP inside the prison. Does she wear Panty inside? What shes eating. Did she call a male guard for a one night stand? hahahaha. Well this kind of questions also from NBC im expecting they will ask to Paris. Hey guys, just dont expect a descent question for a not descent person. Thats why NBC knows you still wanna watch.

  • Deeppy
