Ellen Degeneres hopes prison changes Paris Hilton
Talk show host Ellen Degeneres said she hopes prison makes Paris Hilton a changed woman. On Friday night backstage at the Daytime Emmy Awards, Ellen said she hopes that prison changes Paris' partying ways.
The hotel heiress told Barbara Walters in a recent jailhouse phone call that she wants to stop acting dumb because "that act is no longer cute."
She's not getting anywhere doing that," DeGeneres said backstage Friday night at the Daytime Emmy Awards.
"If that really is an act, if she really was playing dumb, than what does that say about our society that we're celebrating someone who was successful because they're not smart?
"I just think it's a bad sign and she shouldn't contribute to that. It's just amazing if that was an act the whole time."
Ellen even said she would have the same discussion in person with Paris on her talk show.
