ANYONE wanna to speak with Paris Hilton when she gets out of jail? Anyone… Anyone..? Read about her iPad here. And this:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Paris Hilton appeared to be a celebrity without a spotlight on Friday after two major U.S. television networks snubbed the hotel heiress they initially fought over for a first post-jail interview.

An ABC executive said his network declined interview offers from the multimillionaire socialite after Hilton and her mother, Kathy, personally sought to secure a deal in a flurry of telephone calls to ABC News veteran Barbara Walters.

Meanwhile, rival network NBC issued a statement saying it, too, had informed Hilton’s representatives that it was “no longer interested in pursing an interview with her.”

Contrary to reports of a $1 million deal in the works, NBC said it was “never going to pay them any money.”

CBS News, which had not been deeply involved in the initial tug-of-war for a Hilton interview, likewise said it was not interested.
