Reality star and heiress Paris Hilton recently talked about her past trauma in the trailer for her new documentary. The documentary named This Is Paris will reveal a totally different side of her. In the trailer, the heiress talks about how she feels saying that no one really knows her true self and that it is hard for her to act normal as she is “so used to playing a character.”
Paris also spoke about how she puts on a “facade” of a “happy, perfect life” even though it is not the case.
The most surprising thing is when she tells her parents about a childhood trauma that she never revealed to anyone which presumably happened while she was attending boarding school. She continued, saying that she could not tell anyone because every time she tried, she would get punished by ‘them’ and that she still has nightmares about it. “…and the only thing that saved my sanity was thinking about who I wanted to become when I got out of there.”
The reality star spoke about her struggles from the past such as when she had to deal with her sex tape being leaked in the 2018 documentary The American Meme. However, in her new documentary, it seems that Paris is willing to offer a whole new level of vulnerability. This Is Paris premieres on YouTube on September 14, 2020.
