PARADE Fires Back at Halle's Accusations

PARADE magazine claims their shocking tell-all interview with Halle Berry, in which the actress revealed that she once tried to kill herself, was not "regurgitated," as Berry accused -- and they can prove it.

Now PARADE has issued a response to Halle's critique saying, "All of the quotes in the April 1 PARADE profile on Halle Berry came from a candid sit-down interview between Ms. Berry and PARADE writer Emily Listfield on January 25, 2007. Ms. Berry talked very freely (on tape) about the challenges she has faced in her life, including her failed marriages and suicide attempt. It is unfortunate that Ms. Berry has chosen to respond to media interest by backing away from what she originally told PARADE. Anyone who actually read the article is sure to see it as a very positive profile of a strong woman who has overcome many challenges in her life and is now on a clear path to happiness."

Halle Berry's rep was unable to be reached.
