The 31-year-old Hilton responded by saying that she “just wants to be able to have children and have a normal life with my kids.”

Sunrise producers were told that if they aired the full interview they would not be allowed on the red carpet at the opening of [the Marquee casino] that night.
The show didn’t take kindly to being threatened by Hilton and ran it anyway, and the clip of the segment provides a hilarious insight into the real world of Paris.
