Perez Hilton Has Been Completely Changed By Fatherhood

perezThe joy of being a single dad is getting the love of my son every single day… and the biggest challenge is I put more guilt and pressure on myself because I am his only parent. As a result, my life completely revolves around him. What will make him happiest. And that includes me not being away or traveling as much as I used to. I still have to take the occasional work trip, but we have never been apart longer than two days.”

    Nope, he’s still a d-bag

  • Faulk

    I don’t think that he can change even he wants to. He will always be the disgusting pig he is.

  • BitterOldQueen

    @Qjersey: dammit, you said exactly what I wanted to! So yeah, what Qjersey said.

  • Cam

    Sorry I know there is a lot of hate for this guy, but because of him Lance Bass and Neil PAtrick Harris are out of the closet, at a time when we needed people out of the closet. And the Carrie Prejean incident embarrassed the right wing and gave us another brick in tearing down the marriage wall.

    Is he kinda douchy, sure, but those things alone give him a pass for that in my book. His biggest sin are those pictures he keeps posting of himself since his weight loss.

  • TedM

    @Cam: I personally don’t need a lowlife like Perez forcing people out of the closet. It’s not his business or ours. He is a self serving scumbag.

  • a new member

    He was so cruel and mean to so many I don’t think a lifetime of
    good could erase that.

  • Cam


    It is irrelevant what you need. He wasn’t hypocritical. There were plenty of pictures of NPH and Bass out with their boyfriends in public, even holding hands. The difference was nobody was publishing them.

    “Forcing” somebody out of the closet is a ridiculous statement when people are walking around in public holding hands, especially when one of them is on a hit TV show.

    As for him supposedly being so cruel to so many. Remember, half of what he did was report celebs being assholes in public. Was it being “Cruel” to Reece Witherspoon to release the tape of her berating and threatening the police officer who pulled them over for drunk driving when they were on the wrong side of the road?

  • AJAnders

    It was never his place to out anybody. That is the bottom line. The guy is scum and a bully.

    And I always hated how famous he got not only for outing celebs but drawing penises on movie stars faces and idolizing nobodies like Paris Hilton.

    The mere thought that he is now raising a child is beyond creepy.

  • Cam


    How are you outing somebody who is walking around holding their boyfriend’s hand in public while their pictures are being taken? Please explain.

  • DerekR

    The fact is he is often incredibly cruel, mean spirited and just a plain ole nasty, toxic dbag.

  • Cam


    I have no problem with anybody saying that, but what I notice is that everybody comes on here scream those things and nobody provides one single example.

    It’s like when a Right Winger screams that gay marriage will ruin marriage, and then doesn’t provide any examples.

  • DerekR

    @Cam: And I totally agree with you, you can’t out someone who is public with his proclivities. But he is not a good person.

  • Snapper59

    I find other bloggers much more talented and funny. And on television, face it, Andy Cohen has replaced him and serves his purpose.

  • ingyaom

    Work? This guy has a job?

  • Cam



    I get those, not a huge fan of Cohen, and wasn’t a huge fan of Hilton (His constant posting of shirtless pics is just beyond disturbing)

    My issue was everybody seems to go WAAAAY over the top talking about how mean he is, and I didn’t remember anything in particular. I remember him being douchey, I just didn’t know what the really really awful stuff was. I think the fact that his Carrie Prejean question got so much play and ended up causing a HUGE amount of embarrassment to bigots when they jumped on her bandwagon as the defender of morality only to have the rug pulled out when it turns out she was sending homemade porn to her boyfriends just cracks me up so much I can’t hate the guy. lol

    That being said, would I want to have the guy over for dinner? No.

  • Niall

    He is an asshole and a douchebag and NO I don’t need to provide you evidence. I have seen evidence to this on my own by reading his site(I used to) and his twitter account. I don’t need to convince any other person as to why I think this about him

  • Cam


    Actually when you keep attacking and saying somebody is so awful and horrible, and then cannot provide one single instant of when they were so horrible it makes you sound like one of those right wing Tea Partiers that just scream “Benghazi”, but can’t actually tell you anything about what happened there.

  • Malibu Eric

    I just cannot forgive how horrible he was to the children of celebrities. Now that he is a father I wonder if he has a shred of remorse for calling Adam Sandler’s then 2 year old baby girl “The Ugliest Child on the Planet.” He was relentless on his attack of that poor kid (and others), it still mystifies me.

  • Cam

    @Malibu Eric:

    Now THAT was an example. Wow, what a dick.

  • OrchidIslander

    @Cam: I might be wrong, but it seems you are giving him some serious “props” for outing people. To me, it didn’t appear that he had any noble or high-minded reasons for doing so. It looked like he was taking advantage of the situation by driving hits to his site and self-promoting big-time by calling out the life choices of others.

    I’m not a fan of outing people. I firmly believe that everyone is entitled to live their lives in peace as long as they are not consciously with forethought harming others. Anti-gay, closeted elected officials? Have at em. Peaceful people living their lives as it works for them; not a fan of outing them. Up to them, of not, to come out.

    Don’t know if he is a douche or not, but I can understand, based on his tactics, why some would feel that way.

  • Cam


    No, what I hate is the hypocrisy of the media. i.e. Rosie O’Donnell was showing up to awards shows with her live in girlfriend and yet the media would still interview her and ask her questions about her love of Tom Cruise and the difficulties of being a single mom raising her kids all alone. Or the fact that NPH would walk around holding hands with David Burtka and now outlet would buy or run the shots. So the media was complicit in keeping people in the closet. All Hilton did was run the shots that had been taken. Again, tough to “Out” somebody when they are walking through Manhattan hand in hand with their boyfriend.

  • Tackle

    @Cam: Wait a minute, you seem like you are defending Perez, and you are asking for examples, too many to list, but here are a few more. In addition to saying that terrible thing about Adam Sandlers 2 yr-old, for yrs, he went after
    a teenage, underage Rumer Willis, calling her ugly, and potato head, On multiple occasions.
    And this was a teenager, who probably did nothing to him.
    And he went after a 15yr-old. Miley Cyrus, calling her a slut, and
    nicknaming her ” slutty Cyrus”, again on multiple occasions, and posting a crotch shot of a underage Miley Cyrus on his blog site, which could have gotten him into hot water. And as a gay man, shouted, FAGGOT to the face of Which caused Judy Shepard to reject a donation from Perez, and a major anti-bullying campaign refused to use Perez because of his constant bullying

  • Snapper59


    “one of those right wing Tea Partiers that just scream “Benghazi”, but can’t actually tell you anything about what happened there.”

    Might want to watch something other than MSNBC, cupcake. An Ambassador was beaten, tortured, and killed and his body dragged through the streets by a mob. A GAY Ambassador. Yeah, but if that conflicts with the agenda that queen is best dead and forgotten and the reason of his murder completely fabricated as to deflect the blame off Barack and Hill.

  • Cam


    No, I wasn’t defending him, if you look at my first post I flat out stated that I thought he was a douche and his posting of selfies shirtless was creepy. I merely stated that I gave him props for the Carrie Prejean thing and thought that having NPH and BASS out has been beneficial.


    Oh are you still trying to scream the right wing line. Here is a thought. Nobody has complained about the GOP in Congress pushing to CUT embassy security. Sorry there Snapper, you don’t get to freak out about an attack on an American Ambassador if your party and your heros were the ones who cut the funding.

    Funny, the 4 people killed in Benghazi are the only American Lives taken overseas that the GOP seems to give a shit about. They don’t care at ALL about the thousands killed in any other area they have wanted to go into. Remember, the GOP has pushed us to go into Lybia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and even Ukraine. Interesting how the lives of THOSE Americans mean nothing to you.

  • Cam


    Oh, and by the way, now you not only have been on here defending Anti-gay bigots, but you also have shown yourself to be a screaming Bengazi tea partier. Thanks for exposing just how deep your crazy goes.

  • BrokebackBob

    Perez is creating a future monster in that child, he is projecting how he wanted to be treated into his own son, how sick is that? HE IS OVER.

  • DK

    Perez Hilton is a raging azzhat. This is well known from long ago, and not a particularly controversial point to anyone whose head is not up his own rear end.

    Anyone who needs “proof” of his assholery is probably the type of person who needs to Google to find out if the sky is blue. Which is a personal problem.

  • Cam


    Right back at you. If it is so easy to google, then nobody should have any trouble providing specific instances as some did.

  • Niall

    @Cam: But unlike teabaggers, I am not trying to convince other people to hate him with me, I am only posting what I think. If you’re a Perez fan, good on you, keep it up, but like I said, I am not trying to convince you. I can’t be bothered to look through and start providing links for you, but I’ve seen how he constantly tears down celebs from body shaming(just recently Kesha) to spreading rumours to know that he is an asshole.
