This spring, Oxygen network premiers a new reality show, The World According to Paris. Oxygen promises the docu-series that follows the Hollywood heiress reveals the girl behind the red carpets, the makeup, and the glamour. Hilton teased to RadarOnline, “the [show] is an inside look into my life, my relationship, my family, friends and everything that happens on a daily basis.” Hilton goes on, “There’s a lot of laughs, tears, drama and fun! Viewers are going to get to see the real me and get to see what its like to be me.” Oh yippee!
“I wasn’t ready to do a reality show until now,” says Paris. While the concept is far from groundbreaking, and by no means appears to echo “Emmy” from it’s mist, the show surely looks to entertain Hiltonites who can’t get enough of the heiress. Hilton calls her previous roles on The Simple Life and My BFF mere “characters.” She dished to Entertainment Tonight, “I had continued doing that character, so I think people assume that’s really how I am” (watch the entire interview here). So, will The World According to Paris reveal a genius businesswoman that continues to fool the general population? Probably not. But I predict the show will unveil a new Paris that the world has never seen before. As the heiress turns 30, which is documented on the show, Paris seems ready to drop the “that’s hot” bimbo façade and get on with her life as a businesswoman (she plans to release her 12th fragrance soon) and heiress figurehead.
Hilton’s mother, Kathy, joins Paris, and Charlie Sheen’s estranged wife, Brooke Mueller on the show. “The World According to Paris” premiers Wednesday, June 1st at 10pm on Oxygen Network.
