Once "The View" was outbid, Mr. Hilton called Barbara and said,
"I owe you one and I’m sorry but we’re going to go with NBC."
But it didn't end their, she got a phone call from Paris (behind bars) and she wanted Walters to give her the interview. Barbara says she felt uncomfortable by this and told her no thank you. Maybe NBC got wind of this because they quickly backed out as well, but CNN came to the rescue.
