Paris Hilton promises tears, "fights" in new series
Paris Hilton is fearless, and her new Oxygen docuseries, "The World According to Paris," will showcase that characteristic when the reality star goes skydiving -- for the third time.
"There are so many crazy things on the show, but one of the craziest is jumping out of a plane and skydiving," Hilton told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday at NBC's TCA party.
Hilton said it was her idea to take her friends skydiving, and that's just one of the few outlandish things that will be featured on the show that will provide a revealing look at her life, loves, family and friends.
"I'm fearless, and I live life to the fullest and feel like you only live once so you should make the most of it," Hilton said. "Jumping out of a plane is the most incredible feeling in the world."
On "World," which premieres this spring on Oxygen, cameras will follow Hilton starting at 7 a.m. -- "I kind of scream at them sometimes when they come in so early" -- until she goes to bed every day, and viewers will get a chance to see the real Paris.
"We've been shooting since October-November, and it's whole access into my life," Hilton said, noting that she had to rest up for the series. "I'm shooting from the moment I wake up until I go to bed at night."
"On 'The Simple Life,' I was playing a character I kind of invented," Hilton said of the differences between the series. "I didn't realize the show would last five seasons, so I had to keep doing it. I think people assume that's really how I am in real life. But when I'm with my friends and my family is when I feel most comfortable and myself. In the show, it really shows the real Paris."
Hilton said viewers will see her "laugh, cry, smile, scream, get in fights, everything" and that there will be a few special guest appearances dropping in. "So far there's two, and we're not even halfway done shooting."
As for early regrets, Hilton noted that cameras have caught a few private conversations and arguments that she "can't believe the world is going to see."
