Paris Hilton, Paris, Provo Canyon School discussed on Colleen and Bradley


Afternoon. I'm Bradley trainer. That's Holly Roberts and Holly has an update on a story. About Paris Hilton that we first discussed last week, and this all goes back to a documentary about Paris Hilton. Right, Holly. Right. So this is a documentary that Colleen brought to our attention last week, and maybe we even talked about it before, But this is going to be on Paris Hilton's YouTube channel. It's called This is Paris. It premieres September 14th. And in it, she promised to get really candid about something that happened in her past that resulted in her experiencing a lot of trauma. And we were wondering. We're speculating last week what that could be now. I don't remember. Ultimately, the conclusion that you and Colleen came too. But the way we're just we're open to it, right. Oh, absolutely. I definitely This is a story that I look forward to watching When you said it's the 14th of September. Yeah, because I think Paris Hilton is a really sort of misunderstood, Generally speaking person. In media and her her role rather is misunderstood her role in media and pop culture because we have such a just Technicolor stereotype or caricature of what a Paris Hilton is, and I think this is going to peel back some of those layers that we can see. Organically. What How Paris Hilton would like herself to be presented in a way that maybe the caricature of the last 20 years hasn't Yeah, because when you think of Paris Hilton, you think of pink you think of that hot. And maybe you think of her being in D. J. If you've been following her past, 2005 got stuff stolen. Remember that? What was the name of that movie was removed. What was the movie based on like? The bling ring. Yes, the bling ring. Yes. So there was a movie made about people who used to go around and rob celebrities in the mid to thousands, and those people were just teenagers. Bored. Teenagers who are living in Calabasas at the Times will be school anyways. So Paris is opening up. About what exactly Went on when she was a teenager that caused her so much trauma and people dot com has the story in Paris says it was all about being at this boarding school called Provo Canyon School. Interesting. Paris Hilton stayed there for 11 months now, she said. The reason she was sent to the school is because her parents, Ricky and Kathy, were fed up with her partying in New York City all the time. It was really distracting at apparently. Paris went through a Siri's of boarding schools, and then ultimately, they decided to send her to this place called Provo Canyon School. Okay, now what do we know about it? Well, what we know about it from their website now. Is that Provo Canyon School? I'm just reading from the website where they say about us. Preval Canyon School is recognized as an intensive psychiatric youth residential treatment center. In Provo, Utah. Interesting. So that sounds more like That sounds a little more intense than just a quote boarding school right in Paris, Hilton says. When she was at this school that immediately after she arrived, she said, I knew it was going to be worse than anywhere else. She said the abuse he faced every day. Was really harsh, she said. From the moment I woke up until I went to bed, it was all day screaming in my face, yelling at me continuous torture, and she doesn't really elaborate on what torture necessarily means. But she does go on to say the staff would say terrible things. They were constantly making me feel bad about myself and bullying me, she said. I think it was their goal to break us down. And they were physically abusive, hitting us strangling us, She said. They wanted to instill fear in the kids, so we'd be too scared to disobey them. So I have a question. When did this allegedly? I'll take place around what year were were we at this point? Well, let's see if we're doing the math. It would've probably happened in the late nineties. So what Go ahead. No, I was going to say what's interesting about that is I feel like that coincides with this whole Do you remember there was this whole movement of tough love with Children? And if you think about TV shows, talk shows like Oprah and got any talk show that was on at the time they would inevitably have, And I forget. There's like an iconic outfit that sort of represented the This school of of Thinking that you basically had to instill fear into Children. At a certain point. It was like, you know, for the kids who just aren't going toe. Change their behavior. You have to show them all this tough love. And and they took, they would take the Malik out in the desert and stuff. Yeah, well, I totally remember that because it would be on shows like Sally send my kid to boot camp and more in all of them, They would literally take these Children from like the show. And like, send them off, Teo, you no boot camp for two weeks or something as if that was going to magically transform them. And oftentimes you'd have somebody dressed in army fatigues, yelling at the Children as if that was somehow going to solve. Complex, you know problems, right? Exactly. It was like, Well, we're just gonna We're just gonna be like Sam Kinison. Your face Well, so I don't think this is I don't think that this school Was like a scared straight boot camp. But what Paris Hilton was saying her time at Provo Canyon School that she tried to talk to her parents, But they said that she would be cut off from correspondents from them..
