It seems as though Paris Hilton has finally gotten over the party lifestyle that has made her famous. After just a few days behind bars, she has found God and claims that she’s “not the same person I was.” This all according to interview legend Barbara Walters, who got a phone interview with the heiress earlier this week.
“I used to act dumb. It was an act. I’m 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me.”
If you’re keeping score, it’s Judge 2, Sheriff 0. That’s right, Paris Hilton was ordered to go back to jail, and to appear in person for her court hearing on Friday. The sheriff who allowed Hilton to leave early has had his decision revoked by the judge who originally sentenced her.
So Paris spent this past weekend in prison, and there wasn’t much fanfare. She received a visit from her sister Nicky and her ex-boyfriend Stavros Niarchos III. Paris got to spend a little time with them yesterday, which has hopefully calmed her down a bit.
Paris Hilton has been ordered back to jail. Taken out of the courtroom screaming, the heiress is returning to her Los Angeles County Jail suite to finish out her sentence.
The real kicker... Paris is not just going to have to finish out her 23 day sentence, as Judge Sauer hit her with her full 45 days in lockup. As reported by Fox News, Hilton left the courtoom in tears, screaming, "It's not riiiigggghhhhtttt," followed by, "Mom, Mom, Mom."
Just when we thought that Paris Hilton was going to be locked up for her full sentence, she goes and gets a medical condition. That’s right, Paris is in jail no more.
The heiress was released from the Century Regional Detention Facility in suburban Los Angeles just after 2am. She was fitted with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet to keep her under house arrest.
With Paris Hilton’s prison sentence beginning Sunday night after her appearance on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards, it was a toss up whether or not she would be able to handle life behind bars.
But according to her attorney, Richard A. Hutton, things are going well for the Simple Life star. "She's using this time to reflect on her life, to see what she can do to make the world better and, hopefully, in my opinion, to change the attitudes that exist about her among many people."
The sentence has begun. Hotel heiress Paris Hilton surrendered herself to the Century Regional Detention Facility last night (Sunday) at 10:30pm where she was booked and transported to the women’s facility.
It’s crazy to think that only hours earlier she was on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards, wearing a strapless black dress. "I am trying to be strong right now. I'm ready to face my sentence. Even though this is a really hard time, I have my family, my friends and my fans to support me, and that's really helpful."
Paris Hilton continues to keep herself busy during the final days leading up to her arrival at the Los Angeles County Jail. Spotted out all over Los Angeles yesterday (June 2), the heiress has been dealt a few more blows, but keeps on smiling for the cameras.
Susannah Johnson, who was released on Saturday from the same jail that Paris will be checking into, said inmates have already taken a disliking to 'The Simple Life' star. The fellow convicts believe officials were making room for the starlet at the expense of other inmates already coping with crowded conditions in the 2,200-bed jail.
To those of you who were hoping that Paris Hilton would keep her jail entry to herself, you're about to be disappointed. The future inmate has a plan to make a big deal out of her pilgrimage to prison.
"The timing is to make sure she makes all the celebrity weeklies," says the New York Daily News. "Paris is a genius at marketing herself. She managed to turn having a sex tape to her benefit, and she's going to do the same out of going to prison."
Last night became the first time that Nicky Hilton has commented on her big sister Paris' upcoming stay at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California. Nicky, never really liking the spotlight, kept her comments short before returning to enjoy her evening out.
"I think she should definitely be punished, but going to jail for a traffic violation is pretty absurd," the younger Hilton sister told People magazine on Thursday at the BlackBerry Curve launch party in LA, which she attended with Paris. Also in attendance were Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, Katherine McPhee and numerous other Hollywood starlets.
It won’t be long before Paris Hilton finds out if orange is her color. By 11:59 on June 5th (next Tuesday) she will be behind bars to serve her 23-day sentence, taking her newly found spirituality along with her.
Century Regional Detention Facility will be home to Miss Hilton until late June, when she is released for time served. According to Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore, there will be no early release for Paris. Her sentence has already been reduced from 45 days to 23 days. Even though Michelle Rodriguez was released after serving only a few hours of a 60-day sentence due to overcrowding, it won’t happen for Miss Hilton. "The situation in the jail will not determine (Hilton's) release," Whitmore said. "She has been given a full sentence. She will do her full sentence."
