Paris revealed that she created her character for the show."When I was developing the character, I just was like, 'This is your voice for the show, do it all the time.’"

"I think if you're actually like that in real life, it's, like, beyond. But if you're in on the joke, you know what you're doing, you're aware of it, and you're doing it purposefully, I think it's actually smart."


3. She has size 11 feet, and has admitted that she hates the size of her feet.
