Well, there is a risk that if she eats much less she'll become one dimensional....
Is that how she's planning to escape? Also, I hope you meant 2 dimensional... O_O

Also, why the hell is this thread 4 pages long? Why do I keep hearing this in the news over and over again???

I take pictures of car accidents when I drive past them, too...

If this has already been said, then forgive me for saying it again. It isn't easy to treat Paris fairly. How do you treat her like everyone else, when hardly any two people in the system are treated the same? The disparities in the system are a travesty.

Paris says she will no longer "act dumb."

I heard something to the effect that Paris has declared that she "will be more involved in her personal decisions". :rofl:

Yeah, apparently she has several personal assistants that do everything for her. One of them said she could drive her car with no licence for "business purposes".

See, this is what i don't get. If i were loaded i'd deal with all matters myself. Ok, most of us do that anyway but when you are the lucky owner of a big fat wallet you should be extra careful. If i would own a company, i would deal with all financial matters MYSELF. I just would not trust my money in the hands of others.

What I don't understand is that with all her money, why didn't she have a chauffer to drive her around when she lost her license?

On the news last night they mentioned that she had been actually held at the medical treatment center of the main county jail. Only last night was she transferred to the infirmary of her own little Hollywood Hilton. If all goes well, in a few days she will be well enough to be put back into a regular cell just in time to be released.

It looks like either the Sheriff found a way around the judge after all, or that was one helluva rash.

The cost for incarcerating an inmate there is $99 and change/day - the cost for her "medical" incarceration is many times that - over $1000/day, but what the hey! Nothing's too good for our princess.

That's why so many people lose money quickly, or end-up in debt. If you had as big of a wallet as Paris, the numbers would be much too complicated to deal with by yourself. You'd at least need a business manager with some sort of a finance background or an accountant to look after your money.

Most news stories I've read say that she refused to eat and barely slept. So that's why they keep her there.

Have you seen pictures of her? She may have gotten less sleep in jail, but I'll bet her caloric intake was about par for her.

I doubt it because the numbers may be bigger but the "operations" stay the same. Anyway, i would maybe hire some kind of a business ASSISTANT or ADVISOR but not a MANAGER. I will do the managing.

Ditto. The sad thing about people like Paris Hilton is that have squander significant opportunities, which are well above what most others will ever have. That seems to be a problem with people who have everything given to them. Her parents should have had have expected her to work or get a good education.

:approve:
See, i have always known you were i smart guy. Takes one to know one. :wink:

Though what you say may sound a bit, err, you know "cliché", you are completely right. After having gone through this process of education etc etc she would have had a better grasp on reality and what real live is about. She wouldn't have to go to prison for such stupid reasons.

If you wanna go to prison, make sure you get convicted for a cool reason like mass murdering or mega fraude (rip off the entire republican party for example). Otherwise, you would just be considered some lowlife pussy by your "inmate peers", and what possible good could come from a sissy in jail. ???

Then that would also have been the reason that they sent her home the first time around. :rolleyes:

Do you think the average prisoner is sent to the hospital for the same reasons? Not hardly.

Really! The guy caught with some pot won't eat jail food, doesn't sleep much, and whines a lot? He's doing his whole 3 years, regardless.

In California, the guy caught with some pot would get a $100 fine and no jail time. I don't think any state puts a person away for 3 years for possession of marijuana.

State Level Penalties for Marijuana Penalties

The wife of the prosecutor in the Hilton case served no time for a very smilar offense.

Edit: Ironically, I just noticed I initially voted to throw the book at her and give her the maximum sentence.

Paris will be paid $1 million for an interview after she leaves jail. This is sickening.
