(Newser) – Paris Hilton is a workaholic who hasn’t taken a day off in years, she and her handlers insisted in a Miami deposition. The heiress is being sued for not sufficiently promoting the DVD of her 2006 film Pledge This, the AP reports. But the truth is, “like I really, you know, did my best,” Hilton said. “She’s the single busiest person on the planet,” her attorney said.

More deposition tidbits:

  • She only recently saw her cell phone bill for the first time. Who receives them? “I don't know. I'm assuming, like, whoever pays my bills. I never ask about that stuff.”
  • She has no idea what her executive producer credit means: “I'm not sure what a producer does, but—I don't know, help get cool people in the cast."
  • She prefers Letterman to Leno, even though she and David have feuded. “He was on the air a lot at nighttime like asking me to come back on the show, and we made up.”
