Nicky Hilton Says Watching Sister Paris' Documentary Was ‘Very Emotional’: 'I'm So Proud of Her'

  Nicky Hilton Says Watching Sister Paris' Documentary Was ‘Very Emotional’: 'I'm So Proud of Her' "Going through so much trauma and reliving it with the whole world watching is very brave," Nicky Hilton said of her sister "It was very, very emotional. We watched it for the first time," the fashion designer began. Nicky, 36, continued on to say that she "snuck downstairs" to watch the film with her sister before it premiered online as Paris didn't want her mother to watch the documentary. "She said, ‘I don't want mom to see it.' I was like, ‘Well she's going to see it in a few weeks when it's on YouTube for the whole world to see,'" Nicky recalled.

Former Georgetown basketball coach John Thompson Jr. will be the subject of an upcoming documentary.

The film, one of the first projects from newly launched studio RTG Features, will feature interviews with former players, journalists, influential leaders, and Washington, D.C. icons, and the last interviews Thompson gave before his death in August, according to Amanda N'Duka of Deadline.

The best and worst fictional teachers

  The best and worst fictional teachers School is back in session, in one form or another. For teachers, these are not easy times, especially for the good ones. In Hollywood, television and movie fans have been introduced to some beloved teachers we wish we could have had in class and others who we're glad to have avoided.

Kirk Fraser, whose past work includes the ESPN "30 for 30" feature "Without Bias" and the documentary "Basketball County: In the Water," will direct.

"The Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball team shaped a major part of Black American culture in the 1980s," Fraser said. "Coach John Thompson represented Black excellence and that is what he brought out of those men on and off the court."

Thompson coached at Georgetown from 1972 to 1999, amassing a 596-239 record in 27 seasons. He became the first Black coach to win an NCAA championship in 1984, and Thompson was inducted into both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.
