TMZ Reports: The Interview Will Be Conducted By NBC
This makes much sense than Page Six’ article. However, I still can’t say for sure if this is 100% accurate.
It does indeed look like Paris & family have inked a deal with NBC. TMZ has learned the NBC bureau in Burbank has been put on alert for a “possible Paris interview” and the project is so secret, it has a code name — ROME!!!
Sources say the camera staff, production assistants and others have been told the interview will be conducted by Meredith Vieira sometime next week and will air on “Today.”
The buzz is — NBC paid a cool mil for the sit-down. NBC rules prohibit paying for interviews, so our sources say the party line is that the network is paying for videos.

I don’t think this is true. There’s no way NBC can say it’s paying a million for videos. The Today show is a production of NBC News and they do not and will not pay for interviews. I think Paris’ first interview will be with Barbara Walters but not anytime soon.
