Paris Hilton was born into fame and she was one of the very first celebrities to be loved for it. Her perfectly tanned skin and gorgeous blonde hair might be a fantasy many have wanted to live and experience and her exuberant lifestyle might be the envy of many, however, Paris's life is more than that and far too complex. It's no cakewalk to live in the media glare all while surviving violent relationships and the baggage of childhood trauma but the socialite has managed to pull through and shown true grit.

"I'm nervous," says Paris while preparing to talk about the mental trauma she faced as a teenager at a boarding school in Utah. "I'm shaking. It's hard to even eat, because my stomach is just like, turning. I don't know — it's something that's very personal and not something I like talking about."

"No one really knows who I am," she continues. "Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone. I still have nightmares about it," she adds in the sneak peek of her documentary that she uploaded to her Instagram page. "Sneak peek of my new documentary #ThisIsParis premiering September 14th on @Youtube Originals. Finally ready to reveal who I truly am and speak about experiences in my life that I’ve never told anyone before. Get ready to meet The Real Paris," she wrote in the caption explaining that the documentary will provide a closer look into all aspects of her life to people.
