Paris, Ashton and Monk “Punk’d” the Papparazi

From Celebrity Crunch – Paris Hilton’s probably feeling smug right now after getting away with a stunt that had just about every major media source reporting that she’d ‘found enlightenment’ with a Monk. Turns out the whole schtick is part of a new E! show called Pop Fiction. With Ashton Kutcher on as producer, the show is a spin on Punk’d where the joke is supposedly on the media outlets and paparazzi. Jason Goldberg, one of Kutcher’s partners explains to USA Today:

Goldberg says the show is not meant as a forum for celebrity “whining,” but is instead played as a comedy. “We’re having fun, but we want to say to people, ‘Can you really believe everything you read and see?’ ”

He claims major media outlets have been duped into reporting false stories about celebrities in recent months, though he would not elaborate.

“This is about selling magazines,” he says. “But it’s not just at the expense of celebrities; it’s at the expense of the population, because they’re being sucked into it, too.”

Hey, fine by me. Let’s all make stuff up. But do you really think anyone who saw the Paris monk story actually believed that crazy broad was becoming a Buddhist? She can barely walk and chew gum at the same time. So does this explain the K-Fed fat suit photos?
