Paris Ain't Perfect -- But Cut Her a Break

7/20/2006 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Harvey Levin, Elliot Mintz, and Paris HiltonParis Hilton has flaws -- lots of them. She has spoken ill of others, she is too deep into vanity for my taste, she arguably parties way too much, she's a really bad driver, and on and on. But does that mean she deserves to die?

I'm stunned by how many people react to Paris the way they react to Al Qaeda. By the way, TMZ has probably done it's share to make her life miserable. We put the Brandon Davis video out to the world, and the car crash, and the other car crash, and the dancing, and the PDA's, and... you get the point. But really? Comment #100? Calling her a "stupid, ugly slut." You can do better than that.

And # 76, calling her a "dumpster for semen." True, she made a sex tape. But honestly, so what? I can tell you this, Rick Soloman bought a $3.5 million house off that tape, but there's never been evidence that she got any money or had anything to do with releasing it. So she made a tape with some guy she was with, does that make her a whore?

I think there's lot of fair criticism in the Paris Hilton department. And she brings a lot of it on herself by creating the Paris marketing machine which, by the way, has been incredibly successful. But with success come lumps, and she deserves to take those lumps. But isn't there a difference between Paris Hilton and the shoe bomber? Just because they have shoes in common doesn't make them one.

I love Paris Hilton, she is working hard and is making a name for herself. I mean sure she has made mistakes in the past, but what girl hasn't? I mean come on what girl in her own right hasn't spread gossip or fooled around with guys? Just cause she is in the public eye doesn't mean we should critique her, its her life so let her live it how she wants. It sounds to me like you people are just jealous of her, is your life honestly so lame that you have to bitch about the latest celebrities? I mean seriously just chill cause you guys arent bringing in 340 million so obviously she is doing something right.

i think that sooo many people are really rude to her. she doesn't seem like a bad person. she's embarassed about the video and has been. that was six years ago and her ex boyfriend is the one that sent it out. to me she seems like a really nice person and should be treated a lot better than she is. sure she comes from a family of money and that's how she got started basically but she's been modeling for a while now and started with her music not long ago but was too shy to put it out there. she's making a name for HERSELF and not from her grandfathers and parents wealth. the sex tape wasn't the way she wanted to make a name for herself. she said she's actually embarassed to walk on the streets because of it and she doesn't like her body so she's embarassed about showing that to people. i think that everyone should just lay off of her. because one she never did anything to you. it's your choice to watch the tv and see her on there and it's your choice to turn it off. stop complaining about something you can control. i feel bad for her in certain situations. this one especially. it couldn't really be an act because she isn't that good of an actress with serious things but it was pulled off very well.

P.H. i just read everything that you said and i really respect that. a while back she was just someone i heard about a lot and i didn't care too much. then i started to watch the simple life and i loved it. she may not be loved by everyone but its funny that people take the time out of their lives to talk bad about someone they don't know. i definitly wouldn't like that at all. i've had it done before also. people treat her like she's no one like she said. and she is someone. whether anyone thinks so or not. it's good for her that she doesn't read what people say about her because that's the best way to keep it. but after a while i'm sure she became curious and it really must hurt. i've never had anything like that said to me. but i know it must hurt like hell even if it's from people she doesn't know. i think that she's a very strong person to put up with what she does. people talking bad about her because she's all over the place, her sex tape, everything. she puts up with her and doesn't like it get to her in front of everyone. but it was about time she said something. i'm proud of her

I have never been to this site but felt compelled after seeing the interview with Paris Hilton on CNN, of all places. She blames Rick whatever-his-name-is for "ruining her life." Wow, if that's not pointing the finger at everyone else but yourself, I don't know what is! She chose to have sex with some random dude on camera. He didn't hold a gun to her head. I have always disliked this woman, but after hearing her compare herself to the late Marilyn Monroe and PRINCESS DIANA, I was filled with disgust and contempt for such an arrogant comment from such a useless waste of human life. As for Marylin Monroe, she was a talented actress and had a terrible childhood filled with sexual abuse, the worse thing Miss Hilton has suffered through was probably a broken nail. How she could even speak Princess Di's name in the same breath as her own is baffling. Princess Di worked tirelessly for the betterment of humanity. She loved everyone and was a gentle, kind, CLASSY LADY. Miss Hilton would not be fit to kiss Princess Di's feet were she alive today. Miss Hilton even had the nerve to compare herself to the wonderful Audrey Hepburn; one of the classiest ladies of all time. Audrey also devoted her entire later life to charity and helping the impoverished and starving. Why is it that Miss Hilton is comparing herself to women that cannot possibly stand up for themselves and say, "Wait a minute, how DARE she?!" Could you possibly picute Audrey or Diana in a SEX tape? What has Paris Hilton contributed to this world? A crappy perfume that is sold at Kmart? A nasty tape of her screwing some nasty dude? The phrase, "that's hot?" She blames the media for the publics opinion of her but the fault lies entirely with her. She chooses to be an empty-headed (even if it is "an act") useless person. Her only claim to fame is a sex tape and being at all the parties with all the other useless wastes of life she hangs out with. When she chooses to abandon her lifestyle and her attitude, people might begin to have some sort of respect for her life. How dare she compare herself to these great women who really WERE icons. She will forever be known as a slut with no purpose on this Earth and she has no one to blame but herself. Wake up, Miss Hilton. Not one intelligent person worth their weight in salt has any respect for you and frankly, the world would be a better place if you and all others like you were never to be heard of or seen again.

Paris Hilton loves drama to say the least. She loves the feeling of fame, of it all. People like that are just very insecure bc many secure stars do not act as if she does. Every day she is with some new man that she claims she loves. The girl has high mileage what guy would want her? Def not for anything serious. All she wants to do is sleep around, drink, and act like she is 18 forever. She is a little to old to be acting like a kid if you ask me. She could be a classy woman if she wanted but she rather be the worlds "whore" as the entire world knows her by. I have never met anyone person who said she has a pretty face or anything. Her entire persona has burned bc she let it. But it is her life if she wants to be known as the biggest whore I guess she is aloud. It just seems she would like to hold her head up in public instead of people laugh at her. She steals her own friends boyfriends & is always fighting with some other it girl for the moment bc she is jelous they are getting more attention than her. It is all just dumb..

it wasnt until the tape with her using the "n" word a few times casually right before nicole dropped her as a friend - that i lost all respect for her. You cannot use that word and think its alright!! it says so much about you as a person! who does she think she is!
she is a racist and i dont care another thing about her when i found that out - i lost all respect for her.

T0 all u people that are talking about Paris Hilton. She is not a bad person at all.
people make up stuff about her. she is trying to be the person that she is which is a good girl.But with everyone making bad remarks about her. Its hard for her not to get mad or upset. Everyone should just leave her alone. Just to let you kno the people in the magazines MAKE UP STUff. She didnt start the porn take. That wus her ex-boyfriend that was an idiot and tried to runin her career. Just leave her alone. She didnt do anything bad to you people. If guys just make fun of her beacause you arent her. Your not as lucky as her. You dont kno her. SO LEAVE HER ALONE!!!!

who ever calls paris hilton a slut and a human condom can go to hell she is a hard worker she sings & she acts & she has a book out & her on tv show i saw that tmz video of her & i think it is rude she has feelings just like everyone else i dont think there is a need to talk bad stuff about her. she is talented & gorgeous at that she may dress a little reveling but who cares everyone does in some point in there life, & if you have the body like her then why not she makes the out fits look good when the reporter read those comments to paris hilton on that interview i thought how could people be so rude when they dont evan know her, she is not a slut or a whore or a "human condom" she is a gorgeous talented actress.
i think people that judge other people people that they dont evan no are messed up so i hope paris understands there just jealous of her,

Every where you go there will be people that are jealous of you. Paris is just a great example of that. She's having fun with her life, no one has the right to judge her.
People spend their lives putting down other people because they are sad and pathetic. If you don't like her turn off the TV, its that simple.

The reason anyone calls her a slut is because they are jealous of what they do not have. I personally am not a fan of Paris, but that doesn't mean she's a slut. People that make rude comments about anyone famous are mad because they dont have the spotlight. Id like to see any average Joe handle the pressure of a celebrity. I personally think she takes life and goes with it. So to all of the people who make rude comments...Stop, take a look at your own life and see if it's any better. It's easy to talk crap about someone you don't know and get to see every inch of thier life displayed to the world!

Oh for goodness sake, Paris Hilton is not a slut, and examine yourselves, your own lives first. Are you all perfect people? Have you never gotten down and dirty in the privacy of your own innocuous lives? She's a young woman who is able to enjoy herself, probably more than most of us, in that she has access to wealth and fame and of course, money. But that really is no reason to bash her. Sounds to me like a whole lot of jealousy and, well, general hatefulness is at work in your minds. Why bash her? Work on your own lives, enjoy the ''gossip'', but don't work yourselves into a hate frenzy over this human being, who happens to be Paris Hilton. It's just mean-spirited. C'mon, people, stop the hate-fest. And no, I am not related to Miss Hilton, nor do I know her...i'm a schlepp, just like most of the rest of you. Stop hating, is all I've got to say. Enjoy the rest of the summer! And try to fill your minds with something that brings you peace!

PARIS IS YOUNG, BEAUTIFUL AND VERY WEALTHY. IS THAT A VALID REASON TO SAY THE AWFUL THINGS I JUST READ? I THINK NOT. SHE IS CERTAINLY A CELEBRITY, SHE IS MUCH SMARTER THEN THE PEOPLE WHO ARE PUTTING HER DOWN. SHE HAS MARKETED HERSELF, WHICH IS THE AMERICAN WAY. SHE DID IT QUITE WELL. I AM A GRANDMOTHER AND WOULD BE PROUD TO HAVE HER AS A GRANDCHILD. KIDS ARE HAVING SEX TODAY 1T 13. PARIS IS NOT 13. GO GIRL!

Paris,
Sorry you have to endure such envy & jealousy. There is not one of those people who are calling you names or worse who hasn't done something that they could be ridiculed or threaten for but Sweetie they aren't famous and every mistake or playful thing they do isn't caught on tape.
Growing up in poverty, being a retired professional soldier for 27 years, and experiencing the real filth of our so called humanity, I have seen what thier kind of hatered can do to people. Please Paris, just keep your guard up, be aware what is going on around you, and enjoy the life you have been blessed with.
I think you're great and wish you a fulfilling, happy life. You are a Beatiful Person!
