Paris Hilton claims sex tape ruined chances of being 'like Princess Diana'
Paris Hilton believes the infamous sex tape that leaked of her robbed her of her biggest role: Being like Princess Diana.
Launching a new fragrance line, Hilton revealed in an interview with Marie Claire that the tape which was leaked by her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon in 2004 damaged her chances and perception immeasurably.
"It's really hurtful, because my whole life I really looked up to Princess Diana, all these elegant, amazing women, and I feel like [Salomon] just took that all away from me," she says. "I could have been like that, but because of that tape, I will always be judged and thought of as whatever they say about me because of a private moment between my boyfriend and me. I wish I had never met him."
The hotel heiress and former reality star also went on to say that the effect the tape's release had on her was crippling.
"That is actually the one regret in my life. I wish that I had never met that guy. I could not leave my house for months. I was so depressed, humiliated. I didn't want to be seen in public."
The article also reveals that Hilton has also considered crossing over into the world of politics, much like former reality TV star Donald Trump did.
