Paris Hilton Shamed by Police Tapes

Paris Hilton is set to be embarrassed by a new US TV show which will air police interview tapes with the hotel heiress, in which she admits she's "not that smart".

The star was quizzed over a 2004 robbery at Girl Gone Wild producer Joe Francis' Los Angeles home, because Francis claims she told him information about a suspect at a later party.

But Hilton told investigators she was not a reliable witness, because she has a bad memory and isn't clever.

The confession can be heard on an audio tape to be aired on American television's Dateline NBC.

The sometime singer/actress says, "Like I really... I don't remember. I'm not like that smart.

"I like forget stuff all the time."

Detectives are heard on the tape trying to coax Hilton to remember what she told Francis, according to PageSix.

Paris Hilton was born February 17, 1981, the great-granddaughter of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton. She is the niece of actresses Kim Richards (Meatballs II) and Kyle Richards (ER). The heiress, socialite, and sometimes runway model lives with her sister, handbag designer and fellow socialite Nicky Hilton, in a four-story 1920's mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Paris and best friend Nicole Richie (Lionel's daughter) "star" together in The Simple Life, a reality TV show in which the girls trade their rarefied world for life on a farm in Arkansas. Though she had to leave behind the considerable comforts of home, Paris was able to bring along her beloved Chihuahua, Tinkerbell. Her most notable appearance in film was a cameo in the Ben Stiller film Zoolander in which she played herself. In 2006 she appeared in the movie Pledge This!
