Paris: I “never, ever [thought] that my foolish actions would become public.”
Paris Hilton, famous for being famous for being famous, confirms that it’s her in the infamous tape, and said in a statement, “I feel embarrassed and humiliated, especially because my parents and the people who love me have been hurt.” She also says, “I was in an intimate relationship, never, ever thinking that my foolish actions would become public.” Except, like, when she does them on purpose for The Simple Life or any number of other media appearances. Interestingly, the “foolish actions” statement was distributed by the AP and reprinted by the New York Daily News, but its version differs from other media outlets. ABC News and The Washington Post‘s version of the AP story replaces “foolish actions” with “things”: “I was in an intimate relationship and never, ever thought that these things would become public.”
