LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- That’s so not hot.
Paris Hilton recently sat down with “Good Morning America” correspondent Dan Harris, but the interview quickly turned sour when the newsman pressed Paris regarding what some may perceive as a waning public interest in the 30-year-old socialite’s antics.
“Do you worry at times that the people who have followed in your footsteps – like Kim Kardashian – are overshadowing you?” Harris asked Hilton, in the interview which aired on “GMA” on Wednesday morning.
“No, not at all,” Paris answered.
“Do you ever worry about your moment having passed?” Harris continued, referencing the low ratings for her new Oxygen reality series, “The World According to Paris.”
Paris didn’t utter a word in response to Harris’ question, then looked at her publicist who was positioned off-camera, got up from her chair and walked out of the frame.
The heiress eventually returned to complete the interview — after what Harris described as a “long heated conversation with Hilton and her publicist” — and admitted that her voice drastically drops when she’s not on camera.
“It’s a character that I developed for ‘The Simple Life,’” she told the reporter, when asked about the authenticity of her signature little girl whisper. “They wanted someone who was an airhead and kind of had the baby voice, so that a character that I had to do, and continue to do for five seasons.
“So sometimes when I’m on camera, I’ll revert back to it a little bit just ‘cause I’m so used to it because I did it for so long,” she added.
