Paris Hilton: BFF reality show, not always real

    To promote Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend in Canada, Kat Angus, an obvious hater from a blatant hate site Dose.ca, interviewed Paris Hilton.

    She noted how the questions to Paris were carefully reviewed for approval in order to avoid “any that are deemed inappropriate or unworthy,” and how “a publicist is always on high alert, ready to shut you down.”

    She wrote a not-so-nice article about Paris with a few factual errors. You can read her article here. I’m just going to post interesting quotes by Paris:

    “Everyone who comes on the show, they’re just surprised by how down-to-earth and sweet I am, and how real I am and how funny I am.”

    “I want to get rid of the people who I think aren’t there for the right reasons, so they’re going to have to go through some challenges and they’ll have to be tested to see who wants this the baddest.”

    “I sometimes will tell them gossip that’s not true just to see if they’ll go and spill it, and some of the contestants did. I like testing people with trust and things like that.”

    “I obviously have friends in real life, so it’s not like I’m, like, desperate to find friends. I’m mostly just doing it because it’s entertaining for the viewers. Obviously I’m playing it up a little bit and it’s very tongue-in-cheek. Sometimes I’ll say things that I normally wouldn’t say in real life.”

    “I hate bossing people around and I hate telling people what to do. That’s not really how I am in real life. I don’t make people do things.”

    “When I hang out with the contestants without the cameras on, they see who I really am.”

    A Canadian version of Paris Hilton’s My New BFF?

    Paris Hilton is open to filming a Canadian version of her BFF show.

    When she was asked about a possible Paris Hilton’s Canadian Best Friend, she said: “I’m sure there could be. I love the Canadians, so I’d love to do the show there, too.”

    Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend has been acquired by Canadian TV networks MuchMusic and Star!, and it will begin airing on March 1st.

    “The people were a lot different. The British were a lot more reserved. The Americans were a little bit crazier,” said the “Platinum Blonde” singer.

    The ratings of Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend are modest, but good enough, according to people who keep track of UK TV ratings. As long as the numbers don’t go below 400,000 viewers, the reality show is doing well.

    ITV chief operating officer John Cresswell‘s: “On screen we have had a promising start to 2009, with Dancing On Ice, Above Suspicion, Unforgiven and Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend all performing well, alongside continuing growth in itv.com and the ITV Player.”
