Paris Hilton, formerly of The Simple Life, announced that she will be releasing a YouTube documentary this fall, called This Is Paris, which is all about her life. The documentary will cover the trials and tribulations of the hotel heiress, including a very traumatic experience she had at a young age.

The reality TV star is well known for her influence on pop culture. Paris has always been fashion-forward and is seen as a fun-loving and bubbly. Moreover, many people consider Paris to be the original ‘influencer’, who started many social media and pop culture trends that are prevalent today. Throughout her career, she’s inspired many other celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.

At the end of July, Paris released a trailer for This is Paris. The trailer gives viewers a sneak peak of what will be covered in the documentary. As In Touch reported, the This is Paris trailer includes clips of Paris discussing how difficult it was to talk about old trauma. “I’m nervous, I’m shaking,” the Hilton heiress said. “It’s hard to even eat because my stomach is just like turning. I don’t know … it’s something that’s very personal and not something I like talking about. No one really knows who I am. Something happened in my childhood. I still have nightmares about it.” Check out the promo video below, via Paris Hilton at Instagram.

Paris Hilton said that fans may anticipate discovering more details about her personal life in the documentary. This is Paris will cover toxic relationships and public scrutiny that Paris endured in addition to how these events impacted her life. Reality star Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Nicky Hilton and Kathy Hilton are included in the documentary. Also, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian, will make an appearance, too.

Ever since Paris Hilton announced the release date of her documentary, anticipation has begun. Fans have been supportive of Paris and so have fellow celebrities. Holly Madison from The Girls Next Door wrote, “Dying to see this! Congrats!”.

Paris Hilton has been releasing pictures on Instagram from earlier parts of her life as promotion for her documentary.

Many media personalities put on a show when they appear publicly. The facade that a celeb displays is not always the same as who that person is on the inside. Paris Hilton’s documentary, This is Paris, will show the side of the Hilton heiress that we have never seen before. Audiences will gain an understanding of why she became the person she is today and how her life experiences shaped her. As she mentioned in the trailer, it wasn’t easy to talk about her trauma and bad experiences, especially since this is the first time she is addressing it publicly. Even though Paris has gone through her own struggle to create this documentary, the former star of The Simple Life’s story will be inspiring.

This is Paris is set to release on September 14th through Paris Hilton’s YouTube channel.

Paris Hilton’s upcoming documentary will unveil a new side of the heiress and reality TV icon.

The YouTube Originals documentary This Is Paris dives into the life of the star, whose great-grandfather Conrad Hilton founded Hilton Hotels. In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek, Hilton prepares to discuss the mental abuse that she underwent as a teenager at boarding school in Utah.

I’m nervous,” she admits. “I’m shaking. It’s hard to even eat, because my stomach is just like, turning. I don’t know — it’s something that’s very personal, and not something I like talking about.

No one really knows who I am,” she continues. “Something happened in my childhood that I’ve never talked about with anyone. I still have nightmares about it.

According to the documentary description, “This Is Paris uncovers the hidden past of the international icon. As Paris confronts the heartbreaking trauma that forged who she is today, this deeply compelling portrait tells the real story of a teenage girl desperate to escape into a fantasy and sheds new light on the insta-fame culture that Paris helped to create.

Hilton’s sister Nicky Rothschild Hilton and their mother Kathy Hilton will also appear.

The project was helmed by Emmy-winning director Alexandra Dean and produced by Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC).

During an appearance on The Talk in early March, Hilton said filming the documentary over the course of a year was “very therapeutic.”

I became so close with the director, and she really asked me so many questions,” she said. “I started thinking about my past and what I’ve been through and realized just how much it’s affected my life and how I was holding on to so much trauma for so long.”

“I think when people see this film, they’re really going to see a different side to me than they’ve ever seen before,” she continued. “Because I honestly didn’t even know who I was up until this year. I really learned a lot about myself through this film.

This Is Paris premieres Sep. 14 on Hilton’s YouTube Channel.


Paris Hilton would’ve been in Toronto for the Collision conference this week, but like many large events these days, it went virtual because of the coronavirus.

COVID-19 has also meant that Hilton, the world’s highest-paid female DJ, hasn’t been able to play in front of the huge crowds that she’s used to.

She spoke to Yahoo Finance Canada’s Jessy Bains about how she’s been able to keep the music going, and entrepreneurship during the pandemic.
