After her split from fiancé Chris Zylka, you’d think socialite Paris Hilton would want to take her dating pursuits digital. But when the 38-year-old spoke with Life & Style exclusively at the grand opening of MCM Global Flagship on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, she revealed she’s not super interested in guys who use dating app technology — and the only way you’d see her on the likes of Tinder or OkCupid is if she owned the brand.
“I just feel like if a guy is on that, I don’t really want to be with a guy who’s, like, going to be on it,” she revealed on March 14. “It’s weird. I don’t know, but if I owned an app one day that was part of it I would be on it. If I owned equity in one I wouldn’t mind being on one.”
Ever the businesswoman, it makes sense that the Simple Life alum would want to stake her claim in the endeavor before showing support. That’s smart business, people!
“That’s the only way I’ll do it, if I owned the app,” she explained. “I should do actually a very exclusive app. No freaks allowed.” Sounds like typical Paris to us. But, we can’t say we wouldn’t try a dating app started by the queen of reality TV herself — Paris’ Picks, maybe? She did say there were, like, no “cute people” on dating apps after giving one a quick spin post-split from Chris, 33, so we trust her to show us only the best for our swiping pleasure.
“I haven’t even been on any of them. I’ve never signed up for any of them, so I have no idea. But I know there’s a lot of fake accounts of me on all of these sites,” she said. “I’ve met people that are like, ‘Oh my God, I totally linked up with you on this.’ I’m like, ‘I’m not on that. So, you’re probably with some dude in his basement.’ Getting catfished.”
Yikes. We need you in the dating app game, Paris! Paris’ Picks, Hilton’s Hotties … just call us, we got you.
