Paris Hilton: too dumb to manipulate media

hilton.jpgThat’s the upshot of the transcript acquired by AOL gossip website TMZ from her deposition in the defmation suit filed by Zeta Graff, who alleges that Hilton deliberately planted falsehoods about her in Page Six. (Okay, this post officially saturates my Celebrity Media News quota.) From TMZ:

Hilton was also asked if she was aware that the article had been republished in various newspapers. Graff’s lawyer, Paul Berra, asked, “Were there U.K. publications?” Hilton responded: “No… there is stuff in London.” Hilton’s lawyer, Larry Stein, jumped in: “London is a U.K. publication.” Her retort: “Right. U.K. Whatever.”

Hilton swore she never saw a republication of the article: “I was in Europe the whole summer, and all there is is like French — I didn’t see anything because I wasn’t in America.”

Hilton testified on the night in question she did have a minor run-in with Graff, the former girlfriend of Hilton’s then-boyfriend Paris Latsis. Hilton stated, “I just said to her… she is old and should stay at home with her child instead of being at nightclubs with young people. And just that — I just – what else did I say? Just that she is not cute at all.”

Truly an ‘Inherit the Wind’ for our generation.
