Kathy Hilton Tells The Truth Again To German Newspaper Die Wielt

On Paris’ 23-day Jail Sentence:
“Yes, it was a powerful warning for all of us. You simply don’t get behind the wheel when you have even had just a bit to drink. That is totally irresponsible. I agree with that. I do criticize how Paris’ case was handled though. That was not about the law, the prosecutor even admitted that. His own wife drove twice without a license and even smashed up a car. No, of 2000 cases that were like Paris’, no one was punished like she was.”

On her Daughter’s Post-Jail Decision to Attend a Party at the Playboy Mansion:
“It was a costume party, and for a charity. My God! Hugh Hefner is so harmless. I don’t even know if he was there. He often shows up at his parties for a photo and then goes.”

On the myth of Paris’ Privileged Upbringing:
“When Paris disobeyed us, we would first confiscate her mobile phone – practically her life. Second time it would be disconnected, for a month or so. Mothers are mothers, annoying. Perhaps I was too strict with Paris. But she drove me crazy for two years. We lived in a hotel then. In the evenings she would lay a doll under her bedclothes and put on a wig to steal out of the house. She was cheeky but never spoiled like it’s always written – constant room service and credit card at ten years old, that is sick. But we never sued and so this myth grew larger and larger.”

On Her Parenting Style:
“I am very strict. I call my daughter up and say, ‘That is enough now, stop, I don’t want to hear any more. You better stay home.’ Of course I worry. That is why I nag just like all mothers -‘Don’t sleep with an open window with wet hair! Don’t drive so fast, leave your phone on so we can reach you.’ And always also, ‘Did you hear me?’ No, I am anything but an easy mother.”

On Paris’ Work Ethic:
“Paris works so hard. I always say, Paris, you also have to stop now and again and smell the roses.

Kathy is so cute, I really like her, she is a good mother.
And yes, Paris was railroaded with that excessive sentence.
Had this injustice happened to me, my mother would have jumped the bar and tried to strangle the unfair judge.

It’s also great that RREPO has such a good cast. Paris will do very well in it.

I know this isn’t really about Paris’ jail sentence but it really infuriates me how Paris got such a harsh sentence. And then when she was released after serving THREE DAYS in jail everyone got angry and she was forced back. Where was the outcry and harshness when Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan got sentenced? Nicole just spent 82 minutes in jail which compared to Paris is a joke. They shouldn’t have been allowed to impose such an unusually harsh sentence on Paris. She went to jail NOT for drunk driving but for driving on a suspended license. I know that’s bad but it doesn’t deserve 23 days esp. since even NORMAL not famous or rich people don’t normally get that type of harsh sentence for that ‘crime’.

Oh and I wanna say I really like Kathy Hilton (as well as the rest of the Hilton family) and think she’s an excellent mother, and seems pretty cool

I totally agree. I respect Kathy Hilton so much. I don’t know how old she is, but she’s still a very beautiful, stylish woman, and I think she’s done a great job bringing up Paris. It must be difficult not to spoil your kids in such a wealthy family, but she’s kept her grounded, and at the same time encouraged her to follow her dreams. A great mother and a great woman, and she must be very proud of her daughter.
