The early ratings for The World According to Paris can charitably be described as “dismal,” but Paris Hilton did give us the top reality moment of the year.* She and then-boyfriend, former XS managing partner Cy Waits, released a little, er, tension at a club. Waits, fed up with Hilton waltzing in late and trying to kiss him, told the heiress, “I had a good life before you. … I want to be me, and I want to be by myself.” Then things got really juicy. “Get the fuck away from me. Get the fuck out of here before I ask security to throw you out,” he said. Hilton shoved him, slapped him, and then told her girlfriends, “He can suck a dick.” And that was the last we ever heard of Paris Hilton.** (* Non-Pawn division. ** Let us have our fantasies.)
