Socialite turned DJ Paris Hilton may have finally succeeded at winning over public opinion now that we have news of her plans to sue the company responsible for the plane crash prank gone wrong. 

Paris HiltonParis has a good case as her job requires constant travel and after an Egyptian company saw fit to stage a plane crash, leaving her in mortal fear for her life; she plans to sue on grounds of emotional distress.

Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

We’re told Paris is furious over the stunt … in which a TV crew got the pilot to pretend to shut down the engines in her plane, and then nose-dive to the ground. Paris says she was in mortal fear for her life … something the video pretty clearly shows.

Our sources say she’s “totally freaked out” over flying anywhere … something she’s required to constantly do. She’s already called her lawyers to find out who’s responsible, and they told her she has a solid case for emotional distress.

Paris tells them she had absolutely no clue this was a prank … she wasn’t in on it. She also doesn’t believe anyone in her camp was involved.

An Egyptian TV show host engineered the prank as they flew over Dubai.

And Paris says … it was a lot worse than it looked on video. She says the plane almost hit the water during the dive and then steeply pulled out of the dive, almost doing a loop as it ascended.

I never realized how much she resembles her mom, Cathy Hilton.  Anyway, she deserves every penny she can get from these clowns.
