The man who says he created Paris Hilton now wants to take her apart.
Just when this week's MTV documentary about her had Paris floating on air, we had to call and bum her out with the news that her estranged manager, Jason Moore, is shopping a book about her.
Hilton rep Dawn Miller sounded none too pleased when we told her that publishers are bidding on Moore's book about the star-making machinery behind Paris' rise.
It's being pitched as a business book about how Moore molded "this blond piece of clay into a global icon" with a reality TV franchise and fashion and beauty lines.
But editors are also expecting Moore, who says he didn't sign a confidentiality agreement, to dish on behind-the-scenes drama.
"Jason will demonstrate how, for 10 years, he managed to save his mercurial client from disgrace by manipulating the media, and Paris herself," according to a pitch letter making the rounds. "Paris was oftentimes her own worst enemy, making a sex tape with a former boyfriend, nursing hangovers during photo shoots, falling asleep everywhere, and getting thrown in jail for numerous driving violations. If Paris Hilton didn't have Jason Moore pulling the strings, cleaning up her messes ... she could well have faded into oblivion."
Moore, who'll call his memoir "Controlling Chaos," says the girl unkindly branded a "celebutard" was more than willing. "[She] spent hours at a time posing in front of the mirror, nailing down the ideal position to create the perfect paparazzi photo."
Her hope, he says, was to become "the kind of character ... that would land commercials, international endorsements, film and television roles." He winkingly adds, "... and the man (or maybe even the girl) of her dreams."
Moore, described in the proposal as Hilton's "Wizard of Oz-like manager," will also talk about the temptations he saw - "the all-night partying; easy access to women and drugs."
Moore and Hilton parted ways last year amid reports that his wife was fed up with the time he was devoting to his client.
Moore denied that, telling Us Weekly, "There were a lot of reasons - both personal and professional - for the split, but nothing had anything to do with my marriage."
Moore and his Literary Group agent, Frank Weimann, declined to comment.
Hilton, who recently returned from taping a new international version of her "BFF" series in Dubai, also had no comment. But a friend of hers claims, "Given the legal issues, I'd be surprised if this book sees the light of day."
