The Deposition of Paris Hilton
Posted on January 23, 2006TMZ tracked down a copy of the transcript of the deposition of Paris Hilton, and it's a doozy. Hilton is being sued for defaming Zeta Graff. Ms. Graff claims that Hilton placed libelous stories about her in the gossip column Page Six. So, opposing counsel got the joy of firing questions at Paris. It's unclear whether her answers caused anyone any joy, though.
In her deposition, Paris is asked about a companion that night whose first name was Terry. When asked if she knew his last name, Paris replied: "It is like a weird Greek name. Like Douglas." Paris 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." Paris' lawyer, Larry Stein, jumped in: "London is a U.K. publication." Paris' retort: "Right. U.K. Whatever."Here are some more delightful excerpts from the deposition transcript:
Paris swore she never saw a republication of the article: "I was in Europe the whole summer, and all there is like French -- I didn't see anything because I wasn't in America."
At one point she blurted out: "I'm so hungry."
Paris on friendship:That's so....Zen. We kind of feel the same way about blogging.
"I meet so many people. I don't even know some of my friends' names."
Paris on women who stalk women:
"I would never say stalking. I'm not a dude. Like, I think a girl can only stalk a guy. She can't really stalk another girl."
Paris on e-mail:
"Whatever I write in e-mail, it doesn't mean anything. It is just words I write."
