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."
After reports came out claiming that she was back in rehab, Nicole Richie has moved swiftly to help clear the air. During an on-air discussion with Ryan Seacrest, Nicole talked about her upcoming DUI sentencing and what's been keeping her busy the past few weeks.
To start off, Nicole admitted that she is indeed "nervous" about the possibility that she may follow friend and Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton to jail.
Sometimes the mistakes we make can have far-reaching effects. For Paris Hilton, her years of indiscretions have made one photographer so nervous, he has dropped her from his new book.
Photographer Roger Moenks is compiling a new book called “Inheriting Beauty” about famous heiresses such as Roberta Armani, Dylan Lauren, Allegra Hicks, Nadja Swarovski, Casey Johnson. But Paris’ name won’t be among those included.
With Paris Hilton soon heading off to do her 23 days behind bars, the jail is forced to take certain precautions for when the heiress arrives.
Contrary to jail spokesman Steve Whitman's initial comments, Paris will indeed be given special treatment in jail - in the fact that she will be separated from the general population of fellow convicts and will have only one cell mate. TMZ is now reporting that her new cell mate has already been chosen - not randomly, but hand selected.
Paris Hilton showed her patriotism on Monday (May 28), throwing a BBQ to honor America's fallen heroes (and providing herself with the opportunity for another heartfelt set of photos - this time posing with the American Flag).
Attendees of the little get-together included Paris, her sister Nicky, 'Simple Life' co-star Nicole Richie, and unlikely pal Elisha Cuthbert. While the girls all looked to be in good spirits, the topic of the day had to center on Paris' upcoming jail term that begins on June 5th - exactly one week from today.
With all the possibilities swirling around the jail sentence of hotel heiress Paris Hilton, here’s the most original: send her to Australia instead of jail. Hey, the English used to do it in earlier centuries. Why not?
The higher ups at Bondi Blonde Brewery are pitching the idea of having the House of Wax star come to their land in lieu of prison. The marketing chiefs behind the low-carb beer have posted ads in newspapers and trade magazines in the U.S. asking police to consider their idea.
Making a sexy home video with your significant other can be risky business. You never know whose hands it will fall into. In Paris Hilton’s case, the Governor of her home state of California has even seen her in action. And we don’t mean chase scenes.
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has no shame about his knowledge of Paris’ exploits on home video. During a recent appearance on the Jay Leno Show he told the late night host, “I’ve heard from someone that she said somewhere she isn’t even a fan of mine and she has never seen any of my movies, I’ve seen all of hers.”
She's been praying that her jail sentence be amended to something other than... well... jail, but a panic button seems to be the best that Paris Hilton's going to get. The heiress, spotted out in LA toting a self-help book called The Power Of Now along with - get this - The Holy Bible, seems to be flip-flopping her image in a last ditch attempt for a little pity and protection.
According to Life Style, Paris' complaining has ended up leading to a little bit of sympathy. Apparently, someone found it a good idea to arm Paris with a "panic device giving her a 24-hour link to prison guards in case she encounters trouble when she begins her prison sentence next month."
