We’re gonna budge hang out with Dad,'” Paris told Rolling Stone final year. “We were like, ‘We don’t need friends. We’ve got you and Disney Channel!'” But, as she later told Harper’s Bazaar, “The only interactions I’d ever had were with family members or other adults. As a result, she said, “I didn’t acquire social skills.”
Though it had its drawbacks, it also had its perks. “I wasn’t around a lot of other girls. When I was a kid, I was with my dad and my two brothers. Growing up, I was treated as the favorite because I was the only girl,” Paris recalled. “I was the princess; I was perfect in my dad’s eyes.”
