Welcome back to Paris: The Memoir Book Club! Molly Mulshine & Sara Armour discuss Part 2.
01:08 What if Paris had been diagnosed earlier in her life? The Impact of ADHD diagnosis (or not) for Molly & Sara respectively. The CEDU organization and how Boomer parents and daytime talk show hosts Maury Povich, Sally Jesse Raphael, and later Dr. Phil helped to legitimize these organizations. Mass brainwashing and financial support of police departments makes it impossible for kids in these programs to come forward about the abuse they're suffering.
10:30 CEDU organization started when Saturn was in Pisces in the 60's as an off-shoot of AA. Also, is Maury hot?
14:30 15-year anniversary of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan's infamous "Bimbo Summit" headline & photos.
18:00 Britney Spears friendship referenced throughout memoir. Parallels with Britney's conservatorship.
23:30 Can high-status celebrities actually claim they've been "bullied" by the media? Paris Hilton's expert media manipulation.
28:10 Illustrious list of 90's besties turned family: P. Diddy, Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears, Snoop Dogg, Nicky Hilton, Farah Brooke, & random civilians Alison, and Jen. Is Paris covertly reminding them she has dirt on them?
29:35 Paris is arrested by a bicycle cop in the Bay Area after one of her attempted getaways from CEDU and is forced to run handcuffed behind his bike to the police station. Paris reclaims her inner stats. Story where she abandon's a fellow CEDU after running away, without word.
32:40 Paris is sent to Provo and SA'd multiple times. Left nude in solitary confinement, repeatedly. Paris reaches into her inner reserves to survive and reminds herself that life is hers to create from the inside out. Importance of self-talk.
36:00 In a genius move, Paris blackmails her father by threatening to tell her story to the Wall Street Journal the minute she turns 18. It works. What does this mean about what Rick and Kathy Hilton actually thought was going on? If they didn't believe her claims of abuse -- what did they have to be afraid of her reporting?
39:00 Image is everything. Affirmations don't work, visualization does. Paris claims her independence. "Paris In Love" shows the real controlling Kathy Hilton. Which daughter would Big Kathy be most proud of now?
43:27 Paris plays both sids of the Leo / Aquarius axis brilliantly! Paris credits her parents for raising a strong child but in reality, did Rick and Kathy raise her? Did she raise herself?
47:00 Despite all the violent and emotional abuse, at the end of Part 2 Paris remembers she's a Hilton, and for that reason she is going to be ok.
