Paris Hilton Recalls Her Interview With David Letterman: 'He Purposely Tried To Humiliate Me'

Paris Hilton is looking back on her 2007 interview with then Tonight Show host David Letterman.

Following the release of Framing Britney Spears, the interview re-surfaced as social media users and fans started to reevaluate the way journalists treated female celebrities.

In the interview, David repeatedly has asked Paris about her three week stint in jail after she had violated her probation by driving with a suspended license. She had called her time behind bars a “really traumatic experience”, and was visibly uncomfortable with him.

However, he still asked her about it repeatedly, and also asked her about Nicole Richie’s brief time behind bars as well.

Paris addressed the moment on her new podcast with sister Nicky.

“He just kept pushing me and pushing me and I was so upset,” she recalled. “It was like he was purposely trying to humiliate me… please stop bringing this up again… it was very cruel and very mean. I’m never coming on this show again, you crossed the line.”

Nicky added, “You know what would not happen today is Sarah Silverman going on stage at the MTV Awards, and making disgusting, vile, perverted statements about pop stars, about people sitting in the audience.”

“There were certain people they targeted. I would see that with myself, with Britney, Jessica Simpson,” Paris continued. “There was a certain type of girl they targeted that they’d never do that to a man.”

David‘s interview with Lindsay Lohan also resurfaced after Framing Britney Spears was released.

Fans Are Disgusted By David Letterman's Interview with Jennifer Aniston from 1998

David Letterman‘s 1998 interview with Jennifer Aniston has resurfaced and fans are disgusted by his behavior in the clip.

People are taking a closer look at the behavior of talk show hosts following the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears and Letterman was already called out for his interview with Lindsay Lohan from 2013.

Now, he is also facing backlash for his interview with Jennifer, in which he put her hair into his mouth and sucked on it.

The interview took a weird turn when Letterman paused the conversation and said, “Forgive me if this is rude. I just want to try one thing.” He then moved closer to her, put his hand on her shoulder, and put a piece of her hair in his mouth. Even though she squealed and seemed uncomfortable, he continued to suck on the strand of hair.

“That was something that I’ll never forget,” Jennifer said. When Letterman told her that she seemed to be “traumatized,” she replied, “I am.”

David Letterman Is Getting Backlash for Lindsay Lohan Interview in Which He Pestered Her About Rehab

Lindsay Lohan‘s 2013 interview with David Letterman is getting a lot of attention right now in the wake of the Framing Britney Spears documentary.

The doc about Britney highlighted some of the misogynistic and inappropriate interviews that she had to sit through during her youth, including ones conducted by Diane Sawyer and Matt Lauer.

Now, people on social media are pointing out how Letterman incessantly asked Lindsay about her time in rehab while she kept telling him to stop.

Lindsay was on The Late Show with David Letterman in April 2013 to promote her role in the movie Scary Movie 5 and she was asked about her upcoming stint in rehab.

Just minutes into the interview, Letterman asked, “Aren’t you supposed to be in rehab now?” Lindsay appeared to be caught off guard and answered by saying she would be entering rehab on May 2, that she’d be there for three months, and she’s gone several times before.

After he asked what she was going to rehab for, Lindsay said, “We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview.” She then added, “I think, to be honest, I’m the happiest when I’m working, and the healthiest. And this is an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think it’s a blessing.”

Letterman continued to ask Lindsay if she addiction issues. She responded, “Now you sound like Dr. Phil.” After he wouldn’t let the subject go, Lindsay told him, “We’re here for a movie. Let’s stay on the positive.”

Later on in the interview, Letterman wanted to read Lindsay a list of things that have been said about her and she grabbed the list so she could review it first. After reading it over, she said, “You can’t make a joke of it. That’s so mean. We’re not doing that.”

A lot of people are speaking out now that this clip is spreading around on social media.

Kim Kardashian Addresses Working with Trump in New David Letterman Interview

David Letterman is confronting Kim Kardashian about her relationship with Donald Trump.

The 39-year-old reality star and makeup mogul sat down for an interview on the new season of Netflix’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction hosted by the 73-year-old TV personality.

During their interview, David brought up Kim working with the White House on criminal justice reform.

If you forgot, Kim worked with the Trump administration back in 2018 to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson after she spent two decades behind bars of a life sentence.

“Trust me, everyone called me and said, ‘Don’t you dare step foot in that White House or your reputation is done,’” Kim shared with David, according to the Daily Beast. “And I said, ‘I have to step foot in there or these people’s lives don’t have a chance.’”

Kim added, “Hopefully, for the next multiple administrations, I’ll be working with the White House, helping them with clemencies.”

“But see, your good work is overwhelming,” David replied. “It’s a positive force that diminishes what I consider to be unacceptable behavior by the president.”

Kim didn’t recognize any of Trump‘s “unacceptable behavior,” but she did answer more questions from David about the president.

“But do you feel that what is being done on behalf of sentencing reform now via this current administration in any way allows the balance of democracy back in a corridor of viability?” David also asked.

“Well, I have no idea what you just said,” Kim replied, which led to laughs from the audience.

“I’m grateful for what you’re doing, but it doesn’t make me feel any better about the current administration,” David said, to which Kim replied, “I understand that.”

Kim also went on to say she’s “extremely grateful” for the administration’s work on criminal justice reform and she’s determined to “stay focused” on her goals.

Also during the interview, Kim said, “I know who I’m voting for,” but did not reveal who specifically.

Kim‘s interview with David was taped before Joe Biden officially secured the Democratic nomination and before husband Kanye West entered the race.

Season three of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction will be released on Netflix on Wednesday, October 21 – see what other stars David Letterman will be sitting down with!

David Letterman Emotionally Mourns the Death of Fellow TV Host & Friend Regis Philbin

David Letterman is honoring the late Regis Philbin.

The 73-year-old TV personality issued a statement on Twitter on Saturday (July 25) following the sad news of fellow host Regis‘ death on Friday (July 24).

Regis is in the same category as [Johnny] Carson. Superlative. He was on our show a million times, always the best guest we ever had, charming, lovable and could take a punch. When he retired I lost interest in television. I love him,” David wrote in the emotional tribute.

Regis appeared on Late Night and Late Show With David Letterman 150 times – more than any other guest in the show’s history – and even guest-hosted the show in 2000. One particularly memorable moment was when Regis appeared on the first show since the September 11 attacks in 2001. His last appearance was in 2015.

Here’s how Regis‘ co-star and friend Kathie Lee Gifford remembered the late star.
