Paris Hilton’s new reality series premiered on Oxygen last night, under the premise that, “Paris Hilton is getting real with us and it’s #NotWhatUThink.” Skeptical already? NewsFeed doesn’t blame you. The World According to Paris aims to give viewers a glimpse of the real girl behind the glamour, but reviewers claim the show does just the opposite.

Variety calls her hypocritical, writing:

“despite Hilton’s narration suggesting she wants to become a ‘grown-up’ and ‘change my image’ as she nears 30, the heiress is up to her old tricks — showing up for court-ordered community service in Luis Vuitton high heels, griping about manual labor (‘It really sucks balls’) and cooing in a baby-talk voice to her lunk of a boyfriend, Cy Waits, who sulks over Paris swapping text messages with a guy she used to date.”

Sorry, Paris. Looks like your efforts to salvage your reputation are all for naught. Take the above episode clip, for instance, during which the heiress receives a pony. Is that really standard for the girl-next-door? To decide for yourself, tune in Wednesdays at 10/9c. You can see the show’s trailer below, or head to Oxygen for the full episode.
