The correct spelling is "cancelled." I guess Barbara Walters might be having her "get" with Paris Hilton, after all. RC in Austin, Texas

I wish you all of the best. I hope you come out of Jail OK.
You have millions of loyal fans who love you.

NBC did not offer Paris Hilton any money for the post-jail interview. The Hilton family and her publicist leaked a lie to the press and TMZ milked it because they love Paris. When NBC got wind of the story, they came forward and denied that they were paying her and went even farther and cancelled the interview. The Hilton family wanted the public to think their daughter was worth a million dollar post jail interview, which she is not.

Well, well, well. It looks as though all our outraged e-mails and phone calls to NBC and the Today show got their attention. Good for them for doing the right thing!

Blah blah blah    

That is the best move they made. Pay for an interview with her is stupid.
