Model 'intimidates' Paris Hilton

TAHNEE Chapman bears no ill will towards Hollywood socialite Paris Hilton.

But when the Emerald local was sacked after apparently dancing inappropriately near the hotel heiress on a podium in a Sydney nightclub on Saturday, Ms Chapman was left without work and questioning her chances of employment.

"There are no bad feelings," Ms Chapman said.

 

"All I can say is if I can't maintain a job because Paris is intimidated, I am anxious about my chances of getting employment." - Tahnee Chapman.

 

"I'm keeping positive… I've applied for a few modelling agencies so hopefully something (will come up)."

Living in Emerald with her family for the past few

months, the 25-year-old moved to Sydney last week after being offered the job as a promotional model and dancer.

It was on Friday night that Ms Chapman first met Paris Hilton and said her first impression of the socialite was that she was polite.

"I was a huge fan, I wore her perfume for eight years," Ms Chapman said.

"I said hello… she seemed happy to stop and talk to people."

But everything unravelled for Ms Chapman on Saturday night when she debuted on the podium at the $20 million Marquee nightclub.

"I was dancing on the podium with three other girls and Paris was standing behind us," she said.

"I asked her if she wanted to dance on the podium and she said 'in a moment'.

"I was looking out for her… she said 'no I want you to stay' (dancing on the podium).

"I was dancing like I would with any other girlfriend."

Paris soon after got down from the podium and Ms Chapman followed suit shortly after.

Ms Chapman said she later received a text from her friend at Elite Podium Dancers that said she no longer had a job.

"I was pretty much released from my duties for being inappropriate with Paris," she said.

"She found me intimidating… I never touched her.

"I feel like it's unfair dismissal to me because I went down expecting a 12-month contract but it ended within a week."
