Opinion: Paris Hilton’s cooking show is really about something else

Critics are takes issue with Hilton hosting a show about food, but do not be illusory, this woman does not pretend she can cook. In fact, she probably pretends she can not, but that has not deterred much from the internet from mocking her poor culinary skills, and wondering at the time of a food program that does not include knockout recipes. Let the woman slip! (Sliving = slaying and living. Hilton apparently invented it at a Halloween party, so – she requirements for the show copyrighted it. Of course.)
To be fair to his opponents, it’s hard to fully appreciate Hilton’s recent bet if you do not look broadly at what preceded it. Her early heyday spells memories of an orange-toned girl in tiny skirts with huge handbags and paparazzi photos of her rolling in and out of clubs with Kim K, and then silly blonde on her way through Central America with Nicole Ritchie in “The Simple Life.” But Hilton’s life, even when it splashed out on a reality TV screen, has far from been perfect.
When the first season premiered in 2003, a video of Hilton and her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon, who had sex a few years before, was released without consent-when she was only 20. The public reaction to what we would now recognize as revenge porn was one of scorn and disgust, not aimed at Salomon, who was 13 years older than her and distributed the video in 2004 – but to Hilton himself. She was offended, but she was accused to exploit the leak to accelerate her growing star status. In 2004, Hilton and Salomon reportedly settled pending lawsuits against each other outside of court, according to the New York Daily News.
Since then, Hilton has released several product lines, making significant money in itself, continuing to trot out airports around the world in velor suits and colonizing Instagram and TikTok as a more X-friendly influencer. Then, in 2020, she released a storytelling documentary on YouTube: “This is Paris.” The film — which features a deeper voice, more sober (in every sense) Hilton, goes into deep childhood and includes Hilton discussing her brutal youth for the first time ever — either to or from the camera.
Troubled by their daughter “addiction” to New York nightlife, her “strict”, “conservative” parents sent her away to “wilderness programs” and “emotional growth” camps as a teenager. She repeatedly ran away, claiming that men in the camp “knocked hell” out of her in front of the other children as a punishment.
The documentary’s worst revelation is that at the time, two men came to her childhood home at night and without warning took her screaming from her bed while her crying parents watched in silence. She was taken to Provo Canyon School in Utah, where she claims she was medicated without her consent (or explanation), strangled, removed and thrown in isolation for 20 hours at a time. She attributes it to her on an ongoing basis insomnia – and more physically and emotionally offensive romantic relationships, to her time there.
While Hilton’s mother appeared in the documentary – and Says Paris their relationship is now “closer than ever” – her father prefers to stay out of the camera, and has not commented publicly. In a statement on its website, officials at Provo Canyon School reaffirmed a commitment to “provide high quality care to young people with special and often complex, emotional, behavioral and psychiatric needs.” They also said the institution was under different ownership before 2000, and “therefore unable to comment on the surgeries or patient experience before this time.”
In February this year, Hilton was one of three people who testified in Utah in support of Bill SB 127, which prohibits punishing children in ways “intended to intimidate or humiliate.” The bill passed in March.
Paris Hilton’s story is in some ways more complicated than telling Britney Spears, whose back story has also undergone a new study in recent months. It is far easier to sympathize with someone like Spears who grew up without privilege or wealth security and whose musical talents the public can immediately recognize and appreciate, than with a socialite who grew up with friends with Trumps, and if all the shit for years was that she was already insanely rich and stupid. In her documentary, Hilton’s Old School Friends remind of her brief explanation of economic theories in class, and cleaning the school buildings (in “The Simple Life,” Hilton found out she did not know how to use a mop).
One could argue that Hilton should have brought some of the more intelligence and depth up her sleeve to her cooking project. Aside from a brief reference to her documentary in the Demi Lovato episode – where she and Demi share a moment of mutual recognition as public figures who have “come out” with traumatic personal stories – the show is as silly as the iridescent blue marshmallows serve she with her frosted flakes-covered French toast. But as any chef will tell you, balance is everything. Understandably, after revealing some of the most traumatic moments in her life — things she never even told her family about — Hilton switched back to her more spotlight-acclimatized avatar and played mostly in the kitchen of her Barbie dream house. -like home. And drop a few baby Easter eggs can also not damage the brand.
Is it intended? Of course. But Hilton is regaining her lost youth and rebuilding her image through sprinkles and flosses with dental floss is no more basic than Gordon Ramsey create themselves his toxic masculinity by throwing things during explosive outbursts and cussing at horrific restaurant staff and chefs on shows like “Hell’s Kitchen,” “MasterChef” and “Kitchen Nightmares.” And in a world crowded with scary recipes, fads and chefs taking themselves more seriously than their food, it’s refreshing to see someone who so seemingly superficially is not confused about how Instagrammable or “healthy” her plates are looks. Takeaway message? There really is a Paris Hilton for every occasion.
