Letâs get that straight. ADD is not an excuse, BUT, it is a reason for many of the things we do. If it was not a reason, well, then, I guess it wouldnât be considered a disorder. Right?â The Paris Hilton community latched on to Bryanâs article immediately and fan sites featured it. There was finally an explanation for what Paris Hilton talked about on Larry King concerning being diagnosed with ADD.
