Paris Hilton accuses David Letterman of ‘purposefully humiliating’ her in 2007 interview

Paris Hilton and David Letterman.

Paris Hilton has accused David Letterman of “purposefully” trying to “humiliate” her by continually asking her questions about her time in jail during a 2007 interview.

The hotel heiress appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman at the time to talk about her new perfume, but the talk show host quickly turned their conversation to her brief jail stint for a parole violation – despite having agreed not to discuss it prior to Paris’ appearance on the show.

“That was off limits and he (said he) would not discuss it and we would only be there to promote the perfume and my other business ventures,” Paris said on her This is Paris podcast. “I felt like it was a safe place because I’d been going on Letterman for so many years. He’d always have fun with me and joke around, but I thought he would keep his word on this and I was wrong.”

Reflecting on how Letterman bluntly asked her how she’d enjoyed her time behind bars in the interview, Paris explained that the presenter was “pushing me and pushing me” to talk about her prison stint.

“I was just getting so uncomfortable and I was so upset,” she explained. “Just being up there, it was like he was purposefully trying to humiliate me.”

While she asked Letterman during the commercial breaks to “stop” asking her about jail, to which he agreed, he then turned the conversation back to the topic when the cameras began rolling again.

“It was just very cruel and very mean,” she said. “And after it ended I looked at him and I said, ‘I’m never coming on the show again. You’ve crossed the line.’”

Following the interview, Letterman apologized and sent Paris a case of wine. And when she returned to his show a few months later, he took the opportunity to apologize, telling her: “I found out afterward I had offended you. I felt horrible about it because I’m not here to make enemies, honestly. So I called you, and you took the call, which I thought was very nice of you, and now you’re back and thank God, and I’m terribly sorry.”
