(Newser) – Nobody else wanted her.  So Larry King got the honor of being the first to interview Paris Hilton following her release from jail next week.  After being spurned by the three major networks who were asked for large sums of money for the interview, Hilton finally got a deal done with King.  Total price: $0.

Said Hilton,  "Larry King is not only a world-renowned journalist, but a true American icon. It will be an honor to do his show."
