Paris Hilton Walks Out On Her ABC News Interview [VIDEO]

At some point, Paris Hilton will have to throw her hands up in defeat.  This dog-and-pony show with the media is doing nothing to repair the public’s perception of the hotel heiress, who started out as a New York socialite but somehow parlayed that into a business.

ABC News correspondent Dan Harris sat down with Hilton in her newly-renovated Los Angeles home for tonight’s episode of Nightline at 11:35 p.m.  When Harris asked Hilton if she was past her prime, the celebutante gave a one-word answer (“No”), stared at Harris, then walked out of the interview, telling her publicist (off camera) that she didn’t want him using that footage.  She and her publicist had a long, “heated” conversation and Hilton agreed to come back on camera (taking a deep breath before putting on her happy face).

“Do you ever worry about your moment having passed?” End….scene.
