Paris Will Make a Million Bucks for Post-Jail Interview

It looks like Paris Hilton's first post-jail interview will take place on NBC's Today Show, with Meredith Vieira. The move has infuriated top brass at ABC, who'd assumed the interview would go to Hilton family friend Barbara Walters.

ABC was the front-runner until NBC Universal boss Jeff Zucker personally called Hilton's father Rick and made the pitch, the sources said.

Hilton agreed to the interview, but said she'd only speak with Vieira because of "disparaging" remarks her co-host Matt Lauer made about her.

Paris' price tag for the interview? A cool one million. Hell, I'll do three weeks at Lynwood for a million bucks. Where do I sign up?
