Paris Hilton Lied On Larry King About Her Letter

Ok, so here’s this week’s biggest news. You probably haven’t heard about this because it didn’t catch up with the media, anyway. And Paris is lucky that it hasn’t spread, but her fans will definitely know about it. Here at ParisHiltonSite, we are serious fans, so we report every news that is either good or bad and verifiable.

5 WTVH is a news network run by CBS, and just yesturday, they reported about this strange story of someone accusing Paris of not crediting her work and presenting it as hers. Do you remember the letter that Paris Hilton read on Larry King Live? About “cross road” something? Apparently, it was written by Judi Debella. And Paris said on Larry King just before she read the letter that she wrote it.

She’s not really a fan of Paris, but Judi Debella felt bad for Paris, and so she decided to write a letter for her while Paris was in prison. She says she’s flattered that her letter was chosen out among thousands of letters sent to Paris, but she would like to get credit for it. Something that Paris still hasn’t done.

Here’s the video coverage.

I watched the Larry King Live interview again, just to make sure. Paris did indeed say that she wrote this letter. Did Paris think she could get away with this and pretend like she actually wrote this letter? Did she do this knowing that it is unethical and wrong? Because reading a letter like that and saying that you wrote it on TV, is a bit too extreme. She should speak up about this or apologize and credit Judi Debella. It won’t hurt her. Or else this will not look good for her and will take note of this… 1 point off for Paris.

On a side note, you can see that the letter meant a lot for her, and it seems like she learned something from it when she commented about it after reading it.

I think it’s a huge deal. Worse than her lying about never taking drugs. That I chalk up to her being scared. This one, if true, is nothing more than her deliberately lying about the essence of her jail term. Supposedly, she matured and started a “journey.” If this is true, then, even after jail, she simply lied and manipulated to get what she wanted. That’s not a small deal, that’s she’s just a bad person territory.

I agree. This is different than the “drug” lie. That’s understandable. She has two options: either not talk about it or apologize.

If she ignores it, she better not do this again, or else it will hit her back with full force if she gets caught… I don’t care about the haters, but about those who follow her (fans).

She can also quickly apologize, but there are risks. Either way, damage has already been done, unless, if she can explain it. Talking about it will make it worse. The media, David Letterman and haters will be all over it in no time and it will never end.

I definitely believe that she has changed and matured since her jail time, so there’s no problem for me on this issue. By that, I mean she’s taking her work seriously. That’s all she needed to change, and be a bit more responsible.

If I were her, I would apologize to the lady and maybe to her fans, and not do this again. All actions take a toll and there’s a limit.

Somehow I was under the impression that Paris was reading different passages that inspired her.
I never did think that she wrote everything she read. But maybe I misunderstood.
If she uses the material in her book, she needs to credit the original writer.

Just a question.

Why is “Parisfan” always so quick to condemn Paris.

Cut the girl some slack, she went from jail to Larry King within 48 hours, and the time was confusing.

Has Paris been notified that there was an oversight? This can be corrected fairly quickly once she has been made aware of it.

With a fan like “parisfan” I don’t think Paris needs enemies.

And another thing.

I don’t think Paris uses hard drugs. She may puff on a doobie at a party occasionally but that is NOT the same as doing hard drugs.

The pictures we saw of Paris were taken in Amsterdam where Weed is legal.

And having a small amount of pot is not even prosecuted in California.

I’m not trying to make excuses for Paris, but you cannot make her out to be a drug user or a liar.

I drink red wine with dinner but that does not make me an alcoholic , anymore than knocking back a couple of Margaritas makes Paris an alcoholic.

People just need to get rational when it comes to Paris Hilton.

Aside all those pot things which generally aren’t considered to be drugs, I’ve seen her do a bit of cocaine, but it’s not like she’s addicted it. I’m not sure if there ever was an addiction problem. I think she’s done others, but can’t prove it. However, as far as I know, it never became a real problem and as you can see, she’s obviously not addicted to drugs or alcohol. It’s just isn’t an issue. It’s not something that she needs to discuss. I don’t know if she still does.

The problem with this letter is that she said she wrote it (on TV). I don’t know if she knew what she was doing was wrong, but she must’ve known that it was not right. And it’s not good for her image. You don’t judge her only based on this, but there’s a limit.

That’s what I think, anyway.

It’s Friday and I’m about to go out, but this story amazed me so I checked back for an update.

I can be her fan without accepting all of her faults. I like to party, so I don’t begrudge Paris.

However, she clearly stated that these were her notes. She even talked about how much she loved to write and it helped her get through jail. These notes were supposed to show how “deep” a person she was. In People mag, the notes are in her handwriting , meaning that she had to take the time to calculate, plan and then transcribe the notes into her own writing, that’s not good if these are actually someone else’s thoughts.

I admit that I’m not the biggest fan of her social life. I like the Simple Life and her album. That’s about it. She said she was going to tour behind her album. Did she? She’s challenged when it comes to telling the truth. She said that she was working hard on the hottie and the nottie and then a week or so ago, she said that she hadn’t taken her previous work seriously. That doesn’t mean that I don’t like her, but it does mean that she doesn’t tell the truth. In her book, she said to say what people want to hear and then do whatever you want. That’s not the best way to go through life.

As for the drugs, seriously, do you belive that she’s only taken pot? Look at who she hangs out with. Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, Brandon Davis, Britney Spears, Joe Francis, Rick Salomon, etc. All in and out of rehab. You think that she just sat innocently by as they snorted coke. Plus, she’s on tape with shrooms. The court just found Spears to be a habitual and frequent drug and alcohol user. However, Paris didn’t partake? I don’t condemn her for it, but it’s hard to believe that she just hung out and watched. Also, when the parisexposed site came out, didn’t she have notes about AA and not shooting up.

I like Paris. But she needs to get her act together. I think that she fails to tell the truth sometimes because she’s shy and a bit scared. No problem. However, she should not out and out steal someone else’s work. (If the story is true.)

OK. Am I missing something?

Judy Debella wrote Paris a letter and quoted something about “crossroads”. So evidently Judy did not write it either, it was just a quote. Right?
So, the original writer should be credited instead of Judy if Paris ever uses it in a book.

But I really thought that Paris was reading some quotes in the first place.

From: admin

I agree with you, but sometimes, you misunderstand Paris and attracted yourself on negative aspects, which is normal I guess.

“She said that she was working hard on the hottie and the nottie and then a week or so ago, she said that she hadn’t taken her previous work seriously.”

She did work hard on “Hottie”, but not for Bottom’s Up, Pledge This and all those not-so-good movies. She just used them to practice. It was nothing serious. I believe now she’s ready to take her acting career seriously. “Hottie” is part of it.

Also, you shouldn’t quote from the book. A lot of what she says isn’t true. It’s just a funny book, but not a serious one.

Don’t worry, I understand what you mean. However, I try to concertrate more on the positive aspects, but this letter thing is indeed serious and I will take note of it.

I’m not sure myself lol. It’s not clear. I personally believed her and thought she actually wrote it.

From: Jen

It was no doubt just an oversight or misunderstanding, people are making a big deal out of nothing again.

But technically, this Judy does not have a leg to stand on because the quote that she quoted (lol) to Paris was not used for commercial purposes.

Oh I forgot to mention that today is Nicky Hilton’s 24th birthday. A tv station mentioned that there is a party in Las Vegas tonight for her. Sounds like a lot of fun.

I was just commenting that the material from parisexposed is old and people can and do change.
Experimenting with a substance while we were younger is not the same as being an actual user now.

Also, the “partying” so many people seem to condemn Paris for has more to do with the Hilton family’s life style and business arrangements.
The Hiltons have business ties to Las Vegas and her dad was a commercial party planner while in college.
Paris gets paid to show up at parties and to model or promote certain products.

Most wealthy people seem to understand such arrangements (JFK Jr. did the same thing) but regular people seem to have a problem with it.
The tabloids are deliberately painting a false picture too.

Anyway, I’m just pointing out that there are almost always mitigating circumstances or rational explanations behind what we see Paris do now.
People are just too quick to rush to judgement sometimes.

Technically, Paris Hilton “has to” do nothing. She does not have to live her life to suit anyone other than herself.

Yes, you’re right, but I don’t think it means she can say whatever she wants when she’s being interviewed. Can you image? She said she was going to go on tour so many times, but then didn’t give an explanation as to why she never went on tour. Her friend blamed it on Simple Life, which is ridiculous. Many fans were waiting, yet no updates on her website or announcements.

It’s her life, but she will be judged by what she says and does. And she needs to connect herself more with her fans because she’s an entertainer and she’s engaged in this.

It’s always possible that she might have an explanation, but so far given the evidence, we can only believe that she lied about it. If she didn’t, she needs to speak up, but I don’t think she will. She almost never does. She knows it’s going to feed the hate movement and people will over-exaggerated, but what she did (assuming she knew) is not right.

World, consider yourself,

Hell yeah!
By Paris Hilton!
Who else?

The magazine and video displayed those notes because they are so damn bad the publishers and mockers wanted to make Paris look bad.

But guess what, suckers?! She didn’t even write those words. The joke’s on you!

Seriously folks, I’m a writer, so yes, there is no excuse for such blatant plagiarism.

However, 1) Jen is right. Paris did not publish the letter herself, and did not use the letter for financial gain, so to me it is a misdemeanor, as in it doesn’t mean much to me.

2) The notes, the letter, is TOTALLY AWFUL. One of the most trite pieces of self-help pabulum, worst published letters of all time.

“It’s all a bit flattering”? I would never write crap like that, but if I did, I certainly would not want anyone seeing it! If you do, please someone shoot me!

I am so RELIEVED that Paris didn’t write those notes. Because they are just so far beyond lame. Hell, Paris should have used MY letters to her in jail totally kick ass over the shit this lame “writer” sent Paris. I would have kept my big mouth shut about it.

Obviously this “beautiful woman” (BTW, in what alternative universe is this woman considered, “beautiful”? Hell, I’m a black diamond dog but I’m a better looking man than she is a woman. She is as beautiful as a sniveling, whiny baby!), she is no Paris fan or she would have kept mum. Reach out to Paris, bitch, if you must. But no, instead go straight to the media (although what the hell took you so damn long? I was hoping I’d never have to hear, read or think about that brain numbing garbage again).

Some fan you turned out to be. Instead, you ratted out Paris for your own notoriety, you used her like a leech, bitch. She showed your words to the world, but were you satisfied? Hell, no. Now, guess what? Now we all know who the terribly bad writer is.

You say, “Paris is who she is.” What? A lying, no-good thief? Well, fuck you, loser! Take it to Dr. Phil. Maybe he’ll give you a job pushing your brand of junk.

Paris could have used my letters and I would never have said anything to the media. Even if I later decided to write to Paris about her using my letter, & then did not get satisfaction, I still would have been happy w/being Paris Hilton’s ghost writer. AND the world would have been witness to my words, something that would never have happened without her using them.

No matter what I would have taken great pride in being of use to Paris. & Paris’s secret would have been safe w/me. She is a woman & I am a gentleman. You just suck.

Besides, everyone steals from everyone else. But contrary to rumor, there is some honor among some of us thieves. If they are high class enough.

Good points.

It’s really not hard to see what happened. Paris was nervous and the interview was done when she had barely time to catch her breath.
So she threw some notes together and probably didn’t even remember where the ideas came from.

LK said Paris was very nervous, so she misspoke a few times. It’s really no big deal and it happens in the heat of the moment . And everyone does borrow from each other.

This writer would only have recourse IF Paris had been paid money, but Paris did the interview for free.

Now, if Paris ever does decide to write a book and use the quote, she should credit the writer.
Of course, at that point there would be researchers and proof readers involved, and such an oversight would be highly unlikely.

As things stand, this girl seems to be looking for publicity now. So who is using who.

I just hate it when people are so quick to condemn others, especially when there was no ill will involved.

I am still not convinced. I think the letter was rewritten by her for her journal, although I’m not sure. We need to hear from Paris’ side also, otherwise it is what it is. So I don’t know if she has an explanation.

Anyway, it’s not like it’s the end of the world.
