Paris Hilton walks out on TV interview

Don't try asking Paris Hilton if she is a has-been.

Hilton, 30, walked out of a television interview, portions of which aired Wednesday, after being asked whether other reality TV stars have grabbed the celebutante limelight from her after 15 years of being famous for being famous, Reuters reports.

The question by an ABC network reporter was prompted by dismal audiences for Hilton's latest TV reality show "The World According to Paris," on Oxygen.

"Do you worry at times that the people who have followed in your footsteps, like Kim Kardashian, have overshadowed you?" ABC News journalist Dan Harris asked Hilton. "No, not at all," she replied, adding tersely that she was not upset about the show's low ratings.

"Ever worry about your moment having passed?" pressed Harris. Hilton gave a derisive "Huh" and walked off for what Harris described as a long and heated talk with her publicist. She later resumed the interview and said; "I've been doing this for 15 years now, so it's been a long time."

Excerpts were shown on ABC's "Good Morning America" Wednesday, with the full interview scheduled to run on ABC's "Nightline" last night.
