Paris Hilton on her parents ’emotional’ reaction to her new memoir

Paris Hilton is revealing how her parents reacted to her recent memoir release, “Paris: The Memoir.”

While appearing on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen this week, the DJ admitted that her parents became “emotional” when reading it.

In the new memoir, she shared in greater detail about the alleged abuse she suffered when she attended the Provo Canyon School in Utah, and claimed that her eighth-grade teacher groomed her.

“I talk about things I’ve never told anyone,” Hilton told Cohen. “It was definitely really hard for my parents to read.”

She continued, “It’s been very emotional. But I’m so, just proud to tell my story and to have made such a difference in the troubled teen industry.”

The Post reached out to a rep for Hilton’s mom, Kathy Hilton, for comment.

In 2020, Hilton released a YouTube-original documentary called “This Is Paris,” which revealed more about the abuse she claimed to have suffered while at the Utah school.

She said that going to the school deeply affected her, and made her unable to trust anyone, even her own family.

About one year later, she made a trip to Congress to help lobby for a legal bill of rights for those kids who are being held in congregate care facilities, like the one she attended.

“Imagine if it was your child who was suffering abuse, neglect or death in the name of treatment, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to protect them,” Hilton said during the press conference at the time, which The Post previously reported.

Hilton’s memoir release comes off the recent news that she welcomed a son, Pheonix Barron, via surrogate with her husband, Carter Reum, in January.

This is her first child.

While speaking to Harper’s Bazaar for her March 2023 cover story, the “Stars Are Blind” singer revealed that she kept the baby a secret from her family and didn’t tell them about him until his arrival.

In the memoir, she shares more about her time in the troubled teen industry.
