Is it just me - or is the whole Paris Hilton prison thing a crock.

Just wondering if anyone else feels the same??

Perhaps I am a cynical aussie, but I never really expected Paris to do the full 40 odd days. She gets to keep her hair extensions because they are apparently 'too tightly wound'........rubbish. If it was some junkie chick those extensions woulda been out in a flash. Now i hear she has been released after just 4 days......due to 'medical reasons'........or perhaps withdrawls from the party circuit. What a load of crap.

Does anyone else think this escapade has made a mockery of the US legal system in some small way?

Chalk one up for Edwards' "Two Americas".

I love the press conference where the public affairs officer for the court was basically saying "Yeah, we're pretty pissed about it too, but the sheriff might get away with it unless someone please presses new charges."

I wonder if the same "medical reasons" will stop her going out & partying the day after she's free from "Mansion Detention"?

...sounds like bullshit, Barry.

I'm very concerned. I heard she will have to wear an ankle bracelet.

What if she tans unevenly or develops a callous?

I doubt she'll be able to accessorise with those bracelettes.

A big joke. It was a bit tough for the media though. Report on the first substantial rain in 2 yrs....or....Paris Hilton in prison. Hmmm...what a choice.

I ask you,

WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT SOME LITTLE FUCKING PRINCESS WHO GOT CAUGHT BEING A FUCKWIT???

Obviously some people because they report what will give them the highest ratings. The news isn't news, its gossip.

Jesus, give it up already! I am not on anyone's side and I have enjoyed both your and Aliantha's posts in the past, but dragging the entire Cellar into your personal war with her is just ridiculous. Are you done yet? I'm sure this will get me called some choice names too, but thankfully, this is teh interwebz and words can't hurt me, either.

Damn, I was planning on going to CA, committing a crime, and being incarcerated with Paris. I wanted to make her my bitch.

The best laid plans of mice and men. Puh.

Nice try, but she had her own cell in the celebrity wing.

Why would anyone want to be a celebrity? Sure, being wealthy would be just fine, but fame? fuck it.

I know. It's been a tough cross to bear, believe me.

I do it for my people.

Quitely wealthy is much easier. Screw the fame bit.
