PROFESSOR PARIS? Hilton
After her sketchy appearance on Larry King Live, which featured at least one huge inconsistency (hint: the drug question), Paris Hilton might not be speaking in public for a little while. But that hasn't deterred the Learning Annex, whose president, Bill Zanker, is still confident that Hilton will make an appearance at the adult education center's annual Real Estate and Wealth Expo Tour in November. For an offer of $1 million for a single speech called "How to Build Your Brand," who wouldn't?
If Hilton accepts Zanker's hefty deal, which he tells Radar is definitely still on the table as of Friday, she would become the highest paid speaker in the motivation-heavy series outside of Donald Trump, who generally makes $1.5 million per session for his business advice. (Sure beats the $28,000 Zanker paid Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood to speak nearly 20 years ago.)
