Want to know even more about "The World According to Paris" from this co-star? Read on for a closer look into the show!
What was your first reaction when Paris asked you to be on her show? Was it an easy decision to say yes?
When Paris asked me to do the show, I didn't even think about it: it was a big yes! I had already had my own reality TV show in 2003 on Spike TV called "The Club" and Paris and I did a few episodes of her "BFF" show on MTV together; so I wasn't a stranger to cameras following me around. She's the funniest girl I know so I knew it would be a lot of fun to do a show together.
As one of Paris' closest friends, what is one thing about her audiences would be surprised to know?
There are so many things you didn't know about Paris that you will find out by watching the show. People will see how business savy she is and her sense of humor and what an amazing heart she has. Also, she doesn't really speak in that "baby voice".
What was your favorite or most memorable day of filming? Will we see this on a future episode (if we didn't already)?
My favorite part of filming was Episode 3 in Las Vegas. We love Vegas and we know how to do it right there. I loved getting my tattoo "Let it Be" in memory of my dad.
Where can Starpulse find you after the show? What exciting projects do you have in the works?
I’m still promoting parties 3 nights a week in Los Angeles, a club in Chicago called "Board Room", private events and I am looking to open up my second club. I love hosting TV and do that on the side as much as I can. I'm in talks right now to host a dating show; maybe it will help me find a nice guy as well!
