Paris Hilton Responds to Sarah Silverman's Apology For Joking About Her Jail Time

Paris Hilton is accepting Sarah Silverman‘s apology.

In case you missed it, Paris reflected on jokes the comedian had made about her 45-day jail sentence at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards during an interview with her sister Nicky Hilton on her podcast This is Paris earlier this week, calling the performance “cruel and mean.”

Sarah apologized for the comments on her own podcast.

“The crowd went bananas, and while I was thrilled at the success of my monologue, I remember spotting her in the audience, I really do, and I remember seeing that look on her face and my heart sank. There was a person under there. A couple days later I wrote her a letter apologizing, felt awful and I never heard back, I certainly wouldn’t expect to anyways,” Sarah said.

Paris addressed Sarah‘s apology in an impromptu episode of This is Paris on Thursday (March 4) and thanked her for taking the time to reflect on the jokes.

“I was just shocked when I read [an article about the apology] at first and pleasantly surprised,” Paris said. “And then I went and listened to her podcast, and she basically made like an eight and a half minute apology to me.”

“She was so genuine and so sweet and it really moved me. I was emotional hearing it,” she continued. “And I could tell that she really did mean what she said when she was apologizing.”

Paris ultimately accepted the apology and told Sarah, “Thank you. I really, really appreciate you doing that. I know it’s difficult for anyone to apologize, and for someone to do that really means a lot.”

Paris also recently spoke out about feeling “humiliated” during an interview with David Letterman.

Sarah Silverman Apologizes to Paris Hilton for Joking About Her Jail Time While She Was in Audience

Sarah Silverman is speaking out in response to Paris Hilton‘s recent revelation that she was devastated by the jokes that the comedian made about her at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards.

Paris attended the awards show just hours before she was set to report to jail for 45 days. She was sentenced to jail because of a probation violation from her 2006 suspected DUI arrest.

During the awards show, Sarah mocked Paris for her upcoming jail time.

“What Sarah Silverman did was so disgusting and so cruel and mean,” Paris said on her podcast This is Paris earlier this week. “I was so shocked and surprised because I’d actually met her a few years before when I was at an event, and she couldn’t be nicer. So sweet. I knew I was about to check myself into jail in a couple hours [so I was] trying to be brave. To sit in the audience with her just literally publicly humiliating me, being so mean, so cruel [about my prison time], I was sitting there wanting to die.”

“I was trying to hold back my tears so hard. I had tears welling in my eyes. I wanted to run out of the entire room, but I just was trying to be strong and sit there, and the whole audience is laughing and she would not stop. It was so painful,” she added.

Sarah Silverman Explains Her 2007 Roast of Britney Spears, Which Is Viral Again Amid 'Framing Britney Spears'

Sarah Silverman was asked to explain herself over her 2007 roast of Britney Spears.

The treatment of the pop star is under a microscope right now for how she was treated throughout her years of fame amid the release of Framing Britney Spears.

In the 2007 roast, Sarah said Britney had “accomplished everything she’s ever going to accomplish in her life” – Britney was 25 years old at the time.

“She’s a mother. It’s a crazy,” Sarah said at the time. “It’s weird to think that just a few years ago on this very show she was this, like, sweet, innocent, little girl in slutty clothes riding around with a python.”

She then called her two sons Sean Preston, now 15, and Jayden James, now 14, “the most adorable mistakes you will ever see.”

A video emerged on Twitter and Sarah was tagged and asked, “um @SarahKSilverman girl what is this explain yourself x”

Sarah Silverman Wasn't Surprised By 'Imagine' Video Backlash, Says Kristen Wiig Apologized to Her

Sarah Silverman is speaking out about the backlash that the celeb-filled “Imagine” video received at the beginning of quarantine and how the video’s organizer, Kristen Wiig, sent her an apology email.

In the video, Sarah, Kristen, Gal Gadot, and many more celebs performed lines from the song “Imagine” while at home to send hope to people around the world.

Sarah talked about the video on Andy Cohen‘s SiriusXM show.

“Listen, I’m not trying to separate myself from this, but…” she started saying with a laugh. “You know, I did a movie with Gal, and actually Kristen Wiig was the one who contacted me, which I think Gal asked her to. And Kristen Wiig is the sh-t. So she emailed me and she goes, ‘Well, we’re all gonna sing “Imagine.”‘”

“And I wrote her back and I go ‘Imagine really?’ And then I go, ‘is it for a thing? Is it, what’s the call to action?’ And she, and she, and she’s so sweet, you know? I mean, she’s so funny. She’s also so sweet. And she goes, ‘it’s just to like cheer people up.’ And then I couldn’t say no, because one, it was the beginning of quarantine. Like there’s no saying no to anyone because you can’t, there’s no excuse for it,” Sarah added.

She continued, “You know are you going to say no to Kristen Wiig. She is so lovely and she is so cool. So I tried to like, make my part funny at least, you know, like I just feel like I have no currency unless I’m being funny, which is ironic considering this appearance…But, yeah it’s funny because she emailed me after and she’s like, ‘I’m so sorry.’ It was well intentioned, but like, yeah, a little tone death, but it really came from a nice place I think.”

Sarah said “no” when asked if she was surprised by the backlash.

Another star of the video has revealed a lot of details about the video as well.

“As the world was shutting down, I thought I should start playing video games again. It just made sense. This is the time. So I went to GameStop — it was still open — and I bought a console and couple of games. And I got really into this one, it’s not the latest one but I love it — Call of Duty: WWII,” she explained on the show.

Although Sarah didn’t name him by name, she said she knew him “peripherally” through mutual friends, and he DMed her on Twitter offering to play online together.

“We were both quarantining. So every night at 7:05 — I was in New York, so at 7 we would bang the pots and pans out on the fire escape. It really became just like a group primal scream. It was actually kind of beautiful to be in New York at that time. Then at 7:05, I’d put my headset on and I’d kill Nazis with this guy. Yadda yadda yadda, we’re boyfriend and girlfriend!” she went on to say.

“He came out here and so he’s living out here and it’s great and make sweet love. I feel like I’m jinxing it by talking about it on Ellen, but I can’t help myself!”
