Paris Hilton is with two bodyguards at all times, ever since a "crazy man" allegedly broke into her house wielding two knives.
In an exclusive video interview with RadarOnline.com, the hotel heiress broke her silence about the August 24 incident when Nathan Parada attempted to break into Hilton's Los Angeles mansion after watching her late at night through windows.
"It was so scary," said Hilton.
"This crazy man with two huge knives was trying to bang through my windows and come in.
"God knows what he was going to do."

The socialite's boyfriend, Cy Waits, 34, pulled a gun on Parada, 31, coercing him to drop the weapons and law down on his stomach until cops arrives.
"The cops took a little while to get there, so he literally had to hold him with a gun down on the floor and get the knives away," she said.
"It was like something out of a movie. He is definitely my hero."
Hilton said she doesn't know what she would have done if Waits hadn't been with her.
Hilton told RadarOnline.com: "He saw Cy pull up, because he went to get us food. The guy was just staring through the windows all night and finally decided to come in around 6 a.m.
"He said he knew that we were in there and he was going to do what he had to do. That is just what the police told us."
Parada was charged with felony burglary and attempted burglary.
He is scheduled to appear in a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.
"I have never met him before but the police told us that he actually went down to Hollywood Blvd and got a star map, found my address and then walked all the way from Hollywood Boulevard to my house in the hills," Hilton told RadarOnline.com.
"He went through jumping over fences and going through the woods and got there at 1am."
Hilton saw the would-be intruder on a security camera and called police.
Parada has a criminal record. He was arrested in neighboring San Bernardino County after he allegedly used a hammer to break into a department store and grab $14,000 worth of jewelry.
"It's just scary that someone could come into my home like that where I always feel so safe," Hilton said.
"I have really upped security (and) have installed the best security system available - laser beams, cameras everywhere - (and) I have two 24-hour bodyguards that are always on property so it is never going to happen again."
