Justice is served with Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton is a 26-year old brat, a spoiled, snotty rich kid without an ounce of talent. And she isn’t even that good looking.

How she can generate fans is beyond me. It’s discouraging that so many young girls apparently want to be like Paris Hilton. Shallow and selfish, but noticed.

Paris Hilton’s 15 minutes of fame have long since expired. Even as weird and eccentric as Michael Jackson is, he at least has talent. He can do the moonwalk.



The good news is that Paris may have had her comeuppance, either that or a boost to her celebrity stardom. Two weeks ago Paris was sentenced to 45 days in county jail for violating the terms of her probation. Last September Paris pleaded no contest to driving under the influence after she was pulled over in Hollywood by L.A. police officers for speeding and making an illegal turn. Her blood alcohol level was .08, just over the legal limit.

As part of her plea, her driving privileges were suspended and she was put on probation. She was notified of the suspension personally and in writing.



In December she was stopped and warned for driving on a suspended license. Then in January she was stopped for having no license plates on the front or back of her car (guaranteed to gain attention) and cited for driving on a suspended license. She signed a statement acknowledging her driving privileges had been suspended.

A month later she was pulled over and cited a third time for driving on a suspended license. When she came before the judge in Los Angeles, she said she didn’t read the notices because “I have people who do that for me…I just sign what people tell me to sign. I’m a very busy person.”

Did I mention she was 10 minutes late to her hearing? A sure sign of respect.

Paris gets her manners from her mother Kathy, who was at her side in the courtroom. She laughed in the courtroom when the judge ordered 45 days in jail, then yelled, “May I have your autograph?”

No wonder Paris turned out as she did. Paris’ celebrity attorney Howard Weitzman filed an appeal. I wouldn’t take that to the bank Howard. But he’ll take Hilton money to the bank.

If Paris actually does time at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood next month (I wouldn’t count on it), life will change for her. Tinkerbell, her beloved Chihuahua, will not be with her, however; she will be able to wear a ‘hot” designer color, a jail-issue orange jumpsuit.

Paris will get a tooth brush, one tube of toothpaste, soap, comb, deodorant, shampoo and shaving implements. Watch out for the showers Paris.

She will sleep on a foam mattress, but she can buy one each of the following: baby powder, cold cream, eye shadow, eyebrow pencil and a compact. It’s important to look good in Lynwood.

From what I’ve read, a 45-day sentence is the norm for her driving violations. Unfortunately, it’s also the norm in LA County to release minor criminals before they have served their full jail time ” due to jail overcrowding.

The famous-for-nothing socialite deserves the full 45 days. Not that she’ll be a changed woman. How many times does fifteen minutes go into 45 days?
