NBC to TMZ -- How Dare You!

6/22/2007 5:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A rep with NBC told TMZ there was never anything to kill, because they never sealed the deal on a Paris interview.

Allison Gollust, Senior VP of NBC News Communications, told TMZ, "There's nothing to pull the plug on because we never committed to this."

But here's the deal. TMZ knows a producer was already assigned to the interview, which was supposed to air on "Today." Multiple sources tell us that camera people and associate producers were told to be ready, and that the piece would be shot in L.A. and edited in New York.

As TMZ first reported, honchos at the net told selected staffers today that the interview was dead. To that, Gollust said, "It can't be dead if it was never alive to begin with."

I know someone who works at ABC and yes the interview was going to happen at NBC. They can't get interviews on their own so they have pay for them. They are getting killed in the evening knews, they have two hosts on the Today Show with no credibility. No wonder people are turning the channel!

Frankly, I think that they got concerned at the backlash that they probably received as to having the bad taste to interview a woman that is known for posting pornography in the Internet, doing lewd advertising and having a very dissolute life.

You have to remember that no they do not "pay" for interviews, they find away around it like with the princes they paid fo rthe rights to the concert for diana not the interview and made a donation to the trust but did not pay the princes directly.

Please, be for real. Enough of the gossip and talk about something that's more interesting to the public so we can comment about it.

The PARIS HILTON interview was probably JEFF ZUCKER'S idea of more "Reality Programing" for the network.

Harvey,

Stop trying to break stories just to get your mug on TV & maybe you won't be premature again. Tend to news not your ego.

I hope we were able to put the kibosh on this by our e-mails.

One million is what---good for a year's supply of coke for Paris after taxes.

Why is anyone even talking about this? Who cares? She did the crime, and the time.....just like millions of other criminals. Who cares what NBC did or didn't do. Let's talk about something more cerebral like.....what will Nicole Ritchie name her baby?....HA

I find it hard to believe with all the a$$ kissing Barbara Walters has been giving the Hiltons since Paris' arrest, she wouldn't have the first interview.
