    I think its amazing that so many people have empathy for Paris, but I do think that its important to also be critical of those in power. Paris is still part of the elite and voted for trump. No amount of extremely edited b roll footage with emotion-evoking sad music is going to erase that. Its manipulative. There are so many articles about the duality of her "sad documentary" and her politics/wealth that effect peoples lively hood. Its conflicting. I think people easily forget the nuances of her identity because she's: wealthy, white, and beautiful. She herself is aware of that, which is why she did the voice/act and wore the contacts. I can have empathy for ptsd, and childhood trauma. But in my opinion, I don't think she's as relatable as the highly edited footage made her out to be. Thats why people are calling her a narcissist. She wants empathy from us but voted for someone who is openly a white supremacist. "White innocence" is a race critical theory term, google it. Paris is participating in the violence of "white innocence" rn.

    I can’t wait to see more of your reaction and analysis! I just finished watching the documentary, and I really wish her all the best. She’s such a strong woman and it’s horrible what she and the other women went through.. I was crying my eyes out..

    I’m glad she’s admitted her problems. Final step is to forgive them. I hope she works it out! Besides the school that was the fore front of her trauma. Ultimately, it was her parents her caused all of it.

    As an insomniac mom of 2 young boys, I can tell you right now that sleep is precious. When I have to exist on just 3/4 hours, I function poorly. I need at least 3 cups of coffee to just make it through the day, but can’t drink it past 3pm if I expect to get to sleep that night. You feel like a runaway train. I already have ADHD, and I can feel the effects that lack of sleep have on my level of function. Also, you have much less patience. You will forget things, lose things, and you’ll feel like you overdid it when you’ve hardly been productive. It isn’t surprising that Paris seems to be surrounded by unorganized chaos if she isn’t sleeping.

    I liked this, but have a few things to add. I have social anxiety & mild to medium agoraphobia. My stress and apprehension to engage the public/outside world causes me to be late to things just like we witnessed Paris doing. She subconsciously creates reasons to stall her from leaving the house. Followed by her "I like animals better than people" comment, really drove it home. Also, how could one be famous for being famous? One first needs to be famous for a reason to be famous for being famous. Thanks for posting!

    It’s so sad to think about the fact that she’ll never get therapy because she doesn’t trust anyone. I hope one day she can find peace with herself and the experiences she’s gone through because they’ve truly made her a genuine kind woman.

    I had an issue when she blamed her participation in the the sex tape on the abuse she suffered while at the Provo school/program. She undoubtedly suffered abuse at the school but her party girl behavior and reckless decision making started before the school.

    I love animals. I tolerate 99.9% of people. I don't want to get married or have children like everyone else I know who already has all of that. I'm ok with it. I know why I am this way. But it's worse when someone is in the midst of pain and probably does want a family. I hope Paris finds peace in herself.

    I think you need to watch the whole documentary before giving your reaction. You will have ALOT more insight. Her nightmare isnt symbolic, its what really happened to her. And others too. And not just once. You must watch it all first..this was sooooo boring. You basically said nothing. My reaction as a crisis nurse: paris has adhd. Probably untreated. After the trauma, she developed the Paris "persona" which was 100percent fake. She must go go go both because of her adhd and to keep the memories away. For starters…

    Paris has been trangendered, a MTF! You all gotta accept that, she was born a boy, so was her sister. Their parents are elite Luciferians who invert as part of their religion, and worse. These kids were abused, to the full extent of the word, but they've had time to be truthful about what happened to them. They use their celebrity to lie to the masses, in truth, they are liars, wealthy and entitled liars. A lot of these celebrities are not the gender they appear, and it was done to them from birth. Don't shoot the messenger please. But these videos are pointless, unless you are prepared to look at the whole truth. The Transgender agenda is real, very, very real. WAKE UP!!!!!She's just a product of her environment, a poor example of humanity, nothing to look up to, lost but rich, so who cares.

    Nicky is certainly self righteous. Paris looks quite brave, to me, next to her sister (not next to Virginia Roberts Giuffre, all the survivors of sexual abuse, Churchill, or Bethenny Frankel, mind you). Nicky may very well be the more screwed up one, and may need to preserve her own little bubble so badly she might be participating in the scapegoating of her own sister. Her sister exposes truths that Nicky, herself, won’t acknowledge. Nicky comes off very poorly in this documentary, and despite all her efforts, exposes her own vulnerability. I’m pretty sure there’s plenty of trauma to go around in this family, for generations. Good luck to Paris, and I applaud her for her attempts to be honest about her life. And I’m very sorry for what she has endured as a result, but feel it is so important to do it, none the less. People are seeing her, hearing her and being inspired by her, just as we are also seeing and hearing her sister. And hopefully, being less inspired.

    Would love your break down of Paris’ interaction with her mom when she finally tells her what happened at Provo. That conversation was bizarre and it leads me to believe, along with many other sound bites in the documentary, that her family sees her for the complete narcissist that she is. I’m not saying she’s lying about her abuse at Provo, but the fact she’s a shallow narcissist is pretty obvious not just in this movie but by her actions throughout her life.

    LOVE this video, watched one by Dr. Todd Grande and it was terrible. The man clearly already has some negative view of Paris and women like her and minimizes everything we see in the documentary, calls her “the goddess of narcissism” and basically says she brought it on herself. Awful. So it’s refreshing to see a real mental health professional talking about this with empathy and seeing her as a real person who has had many challenges in life, as well as speaking to what all women struggle with. So thank you.

    Also people are expressing how distasteful Dr. Grandes assessment of Paris is in the comments. I went back and left a comment directing them to this series if they want a real unbiased and empathetic mental health professionals opinion.

    Everyone should seriously watch the series. Very eye opening. I had no idea what her family did to her. All we see is what the tabloids put out, criticisms from our family when they talk about her, etc.

    Also, Doc reminds me of Dan’s dad from gossip girl 😂

    Animals don't hurt you as much as people can. Animals are more loyal…. I completely relate to this…. I am voicing my opinion on this as from past experiences.

    Be it from my home life as a child to school then to being an adult, especially as an adult it seems anytime I broke down the wall I built around me, people hurt me. No I'm not perfect and I have my own faults but it just seems like anyone just wanted to hurt me and break my trust and after the thousandth time, I have zero trust and I built that wall back, stronger and taller…. I'm exhausted…

    I have so much to work on so I can finally become emotionally and physically happy and healthy… I say physically because the emotional effects me physically… I don't blame her for being afraid to sleep… If that happened to me? I'd be in her position… That is terrible……

    I wasn't going to watch her documentary…. But I did…. I think there should be a disclaimer, TRIGGER warning, maybe there is and I didn't see it but watching? It was like I was talking to myself. All with the exception of what her parents set up (I'm trying not to give spoilers), all with the exception of that? I went through EVERYTHING she went through. Those places, not the same facilities that she was at as there's facilities like that where I am from…
    The ones I was in, 5 different "Residential" Programs For Troubled Youths, they have either been tore down or changed to something else or new ownership.

    I am a couple years older than Paris and I think if more people in our age group came forward and shared what they went through as children that there would be a shocking number of abuse victims from being in those placements.

    I mean there were reasons I ran away from home but to be put on 5 antipsychotic medications plus a 6th one for side effects because I ran away to get away from abuse in my home? I needed to be on those medications?
    Being abused at home I'm the one who needed to be on medications? No one listened.

    There's a reason I acted out as a child and no one thought that? Of course not because all adults do is be dismissive of children…

    So why not throw a kid on a bunch ofeds to dope her up because she's too incapacitated to move.

    At first I was kind of happy when I was taken to a "Residential center" because I thought this is an escape from home….
    Oh was I wrong…… Thrown to the lions, on a bunch of meds and for abuse to continue but instead of from my parents? By the "staff".

    Oh, then this one…. I was first put on 4 medications and after about 1 week of being on the meds, I started hallucinating. I was seeing these terrifying things. I told my Mom. I told the psychiatrist and the next thing I knew, I was then diagnosed as schizophrenic….. How when I never had a history of ever hallucinating in my young life????? "Seeing" things didn't happen until AFTER they put me in all those meds!

    So throw her on another med that I had another side effect…. My head started turning to the right until it couldn't turn no more and my head got stuck! So instead of taking me off of it? I was put on a side effect medication…

    "Residential Centers For Troubled Youths" or "Boarding Schools"….. No, torture hospitals I called them….

    Ooh being locked in this room with cement block walls, cement flooring, pancake thin mattress in the middle of the room and this metal door with a tiny window was like a jail cell… The lovely "Quiet Rooms" they called them…. more like jail cells I call them… Threw me in there with no lights for 24 – 48 hrs….

    I just as am adult I've lived with this.. I'm 42 and still what I went through, effects me everyday. To hear her share what many experienced myself included….. She's very brave for coming forward and she possibly has opened the door for those of us to tell our stories……

    The amount of anger I have and the hurt…… I just….and on top of that I have experienced so much and not good experiences. I always say that this experience opened up a very toxic world, painful world for me as it just seems like I can trace it all back to this time of my life. Like it opened the door for everything bad that's gone wrong…. No, I do take accountability for bad and toxic choices I have made so I do hold myself accountable.

    I'm sorry for going on. I watched this last night and ever since……. I do have to say, I really opened myself to my husband and he's amazing and I am blessed that I have a incredible support system and he just listens…..
