Paris Hilton may have Barbara Walters fooled into thinking that her whole persona of being mentally vacant is just “an act,” but the problem is that it’s really hard to bring to mind any evidence to the contrary. Us Weekly decided to list a few bullet points that illustrate some of the high points of Paris’ “performance” as a dumb girl. They include her participation in a sex tape that ultimately hit the Internet without her knowledge (supposedly) as well as a reminder that Paris once asked in an episode of “The Simple Life” if Wal-mart was a place where walls could be purchased. Also:
– When asked the last name of a pal during a 2005 legal disposition, Hilton replied, “It’s, like, a weird Greek name. Like Douglas.”
– “I’m, like, not that smart,” the star admitted to police when she was interviewed about an unrelated criminal investigation last year.
Well, you have to admire this woman’s commitment to her role. That is some serious method-acting going on, if you ask me. But more than anything, all of this has me seriously questioning Barbara’s intelligence. Why on earth is she championing this nitwit?
