Want to get on Paris Hilton‘s bad side? Ask her if she’s old news. ABC’s Dan Harris sat down with Hilton at her home in Los Angeles to talk about her career, and whether or not low ratings for her latest reality show indicate she’s seeing the end of her “moment.” Hilton smiles awkwardly, looks off camera–taking direction from a handler–and walks off. As Harris described it, “after storming off, Hilton eventually returned to the interview after some cajoling to discuss her ideas about her own reinvention.” The interview–and the interruption–were featured on Wednesday morning’s GMA.
