We’ll always have Paris (Oh wait, she quit.)
Hilton, scheduled to be a co-host of the show, reportedly found the script draft given to her over the weekend unacceptable, according to the Associated Press.
More from the AP report:
“It is my understanding that some satirical references ridiculed some of her peers,” [Paris’] spokesman, Elliot Mintz, said in a statement. “Paris did not want to say anything that could appear hurtful or embarrassing about people she knows.”
Mintz said Hilton received a script Friday that contained material she found “objectionable.” Representatives for Hilton and the awards show could not come to an agreement about the script’s content so she decided to scrap the appearance, he said.
Jokes about her peers? I wonder if they either wanted her to pretend to receive a grammatically-inept letter from Lohan (blamed on her Blackberry), or get out of a car, exposing her lower half to the audience? Maybe they wanted to work in a Sidekick phone gag as well?
Of course, it’s all in good fun, right Paris? I’m sure you’re trying to do the noble thing, protecting the image of Lohan and Spears.
I guess it’s not so funny seeing your exploits reinacted in front of a live audience, which are quickly making you and your friends a laughingstock and punchline for late-night monologues.
Well, more of a punchline than the three were already.
Also appearing tonight on the Paris-less show: Ludacris, Mary J. Blige, the Fray, the Killers and Janet Jackson (her first music appearance since the Super Bowl “nipple-gate” concert).
