Hilton Rooming on the State’s Dime

June 4, 2007 | By | 2 Replies More

Paris Hilton, reality show star, accidental internet hardcore porn celebrity, and heiress to part of the Hilton hotel fortune is spending the next three weeks in the celebrity wing of the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood for a conviction for drunk driving, driving on a suspended license, probation violation, and reckless endangerment.

My question is: Is this news? I did see it on the web version of my local paper.

Perhaps it is news because a super-rich spoiled brat acting her irresponsible part was actually convicted of something, and then somewhat punished.

Perhaps it is news because Miss H. said that she didn’t opt for a cushy paid-for detention cell because she wanted to prove that she really was just like everyone else. I guess everyone else gets to stay in the private celebrity wing of the nicest state-funded jail in L.A. county.

On a deeper page in the same “paper” there is a comparably sized article that mentions that between 30,000 and 120,000 people are homeless after an earthquake in China yesterday. The number depends on how many homes can be re-occupied after the clean-up.

    Saints preserve us! Young Ms. Hilton has far outlasted her 15 minutes of fame. As one without any discernable talent or training, I wished she'd retire to the obscurity she richly deserves.

    Paris Hilton goes to jail. Sounds like the title for her next notorious Internet video.
