Paris Hilton was trashed by stand-up comedienne Sarah Silverman in 2007 at the MTV Movie Awards when the reality TV star was sitting in the audience.
And on her This Is Paris podcast on Monday, the 40-year-old The Simple Life star said she is still angry about the verbal attack, which caused the whole room to laugh, humiliating the star.
‘It was so disgusting and cruel and mean,’ said the perfume mogul on her show where her guest was younger sister Nicky Hilton.
Painful past: Paris Hilton says she had to hold back TEARS when Sarah Silverman said ‘cruel’ things about her at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards, seen left in 2019. Her sister Nicky demanded an apology when she was on Paris’ podcast on Monday; seen right in September
Paris looked lovely in a black gown as she was in the audience of the 2007 awards show.
It was only hours before she was due to check into prison for violating her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.
Hilton said she was nervous to even go to the event, so when she was the butt of Silverman’s jokes it was intolerable.
‘I was so shocked and surprised because I had actually met her a few years before at an event and she was sweet,’ said Paris.

She was a victim: ‘It was so disgusting and cruel and mean,’ said the perfume mogul on her podcast show
‘I was obviously very nervous and knew I was about to check into a jail a few hours later, I put on a brave face and she literally pummeled me, so mean so cruel,’ said the pal of Kim Kardashian.
‘I was sitting there, wanting to die, I was holding back tears, I had tears in my eyes… I literally wanted to run out of the entire room. The whole audience was laughing and she would not stop.
‘It was so painful especially with what I was going through in my life, it was really hard.’
She thought they were friends: ‘I was so shocked and surprised because I had actually met her a few years before at an event and she was sweet,’ said Paris of Sarah
Hilton had to listen: ‘I was sitting there, wanting to die, I was holding back tears, I had tears in my eyes… I literally wanted to run out of the entire room. The whole audience was laughing and she would not stop,’ said Paris of Sarah’s takedown
Sarah’s comments were crude. ‘I heard to make her feel more comfortable in prison the guards are going to paint the bars to look like penises, I am just afraid she is going to break her teeth on those things,’ said Sarah while on stage.
Members of the audience didn’t laugh as much as they gasped. The camera went to Paris who looked on the verge of tears.
Nicky then shared on the podcast, ‘Mom always told us you don’t know someone until you have walked a mile in their shes and here Sarah was…. saying the most disgusting vile, awful hurtful things.’
The wife of James Rothschild added, ‘I understand she is a comedienne and she is there to be funny and make people laugh, but when you have to put people down and insult people to get a laugh it’s not funny. I didn’t think it was funny then and I certainly don’t think it is funny now.’
She then gave examples of how other comedians get laughs without being cruel. ‘Look at Will Ferrell, he is funny but is not hurtful to others.’
Nicky then said, ‘Sarah really took the gloves off!’
Paris said she never talked to Sarah after that.

Sarah recently apologized for trashing Britney Spears. At the MTV Video Music Awards in 2007 Sarah called Britney’s kids ‘mistakes’ and also put down her performance earlier that night.
Paris also had issues with David Letterman who kept asking her about her time in jail when she was on his show, even though her rep had demanded he not do it.
‘I felt it was a safe place because I had been going on Letterman for so many years. I thought he would keep his word on this and he was wrong,’ she said. ‘There was not supposed to be one question and he kept pushing me and pushing me. I was just getting so uncomfortable and upset.
‘Nicky, you were backstage, I remember talking to you after and being up there, it was like he was purposely trying to humiliate me and during commercial breaks I would look at him like, please stop doing this, you promised me you wouldn’t talk about this and that’s the only reason I agreed to come on the show,’ she added.

‘He was like okay and then again [brought it up]. It was very cruel and very mean. After it ended I looked at him and said I am never coming on this show again, that crossed the line. I didn’t tell him off because I’m not that type of person, but I got angry and he was apologizing and sent a case of Chateau Lafite Rothschild wine to our house.’ Paris said she has since forgiven him.
‘I am so happy it’s different today, I would never wish what happened to me on my worst enemy,’ added Paris.
Paris added she could deal with it because she had suffered so much as a teen when she was in boarding school in Utah for two years. Hilton said she was abused when at Provo Canyon.
‘It’s abuse,’ she added of what Sarah did.
Nicky said because Sarah apologized to Britney after she slammed her, she now needs to apologize to Paris.
‘The sexual, disgusting remarks were so horrific, very, very, very disappointing, that should never of happened to a young girl sitting in the audience or anyone, you should not let a person be humiliated.’
Nicky then admitted Paris was ‘no angel’ when she was young, but she was not doing anything ‘malicious.’
Paris and Nicky also said that their mother Kathy Hilton lied to them about doing Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills and they had to find out about her casting through People magazine.
And they added Kathy is only doing the show because she became so bored from lockdown.
Kathy will guest star on the show with her sister Kyle Richards.
