Attention: Paris Hilton is in Australia and even though we haven’t seen her for 10 years she hasn’t changed at all.
Sorry. Just had to get that out of the way.
The 35-year-old socialite, DJ and businesswoman appeared on Thursday night’s episode of The Project to discuss her new perfume and the US presidency… but mostly her perfume.
Things got awkward, however, when Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald started to ask Hilton about her relationship status. “I’m very single,” she said, when Fitzy joked about having a few mates who were wondering.
But then he asked her something very specific.
"This is an old flame, but I'd just love to know..." he started. "Do you keep in contact with Millsy, Robert Mills? Remember, Millsy?"
Her response could not have been more blank. It was like the moment Mariah Carey was asked about Jennifer Lopez and maintained, "I don't know her."
Hilton just looked like she had never in her life heard of anyone called Robert... or Millsy... and certainly not 'Robert Mills.'
