A judge ordered a weeping and trembling Paris Hilton back to jail Friday to finish a sentence for probation violation, overturning a sheriff's decision to let the celebrity heiress serve out her time under home arrest. Hilton, 26, was led out of the Los Angeles courtroom wailing, "Mom, Mom. It's not right," as she was d...

Hotel heiress leaving her big house for the Big House, will spend 45 days in the clink for parole violation.
May 05, 2007
Paris is going to jail

Reality-show star Paris Hilton got a sobering bit of her own reality today when a Superior Court Judge sentenced the partying socialite to 45 days in jail. The sentence was handed down as a result of Hilton's violation of her parole, which stemmed from a September traffic violation, reports the Associated Press.

Judge Michael T. Sauer will not let the star out on any work release, electronic monitoring system, or other loophole. Hilton will begin serving time on June 5 at a Lynwood, California, prison for women. As is the case for high-profile inmates, Hilton will be separated from other jailbirds for her own safety.

"I'm very sorry and from now on I'm going to pay complete attention to everything," Hilton told the judge just before her sentence was read. "I'm sorry and I did not do it on purpose at all."

The 26-year-old was stopped ...

Paris Hilton vows to prove jail has changed her

Celebrity hotel heiress Paris Hilton has vowed to prove critics wrong and show she is a changed person after serving three weeks in jail for violating probation in a drunken-driving case.

"I'm a good person. I'm a compassionate person. I have a big heart. I'm sincere, and they'll see," Hilton told People magazine in her first comments since being released Tuesday from a Los Angeles jail.

Hilton also spoke about why she was briefly released to home detention after just three days in jail--a move swiftly overruled by a judge after a public uproar over whether she was given special treatment.

"I was basically in the fetal position, basically in hysterics...and having severe anxiety and panic attacks," said the 26-year-old multimillionaire in excerpts of the People interview released Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca raised the issue of suicide--although stopped short of ...

Paris plays "Get out of jail free" card

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton was released from prison Thursday for medical reasons after serving just over three days of a 23-day sentence, but she will be confined to her home for 40 days, officials said.

Steve Whitmore of the Los Angeles County sheriff's office said Hilton had been "reassigned," but he declined to identify her medical condition for privacy reasons.

"With extensive consultation with medical personnel it was decided this reassignment should be done," Whitmore said at a news conference.

Hilton, a symbol of privilege and American celebrity culture, was serving a sentence for violating probation after being caught driving with a suspended license. She will have to wear an electronic monitoring device on her ankle to ensure she stays home for the next 40 days.

One reporter described Hilton's job as going to parties and events and asked if she would be allowed to leave her home ...

E! ending run of reality show featuring Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie; series finale to air this Sunday.
Aug 01, 2007
Life over for Paris, Nicole

Things aren't going too well for Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. Once, the pair of celebrities-by-association were on top of the world, wining and dining with Hollywood's elite, playing in piles of cash, and partying it up bad-girl style.

Their quick ascension to fame was followed by the inevitable True Hollywood Story-style crash, with the "celebs" becoming incredibly overexposed in more than one way. Both have been hit with a string of "bad luck" over the past few months, culminating in jail sentences. (Paris served 23 days in jail in June for parole violation, Nicole Richie was recently handed an order for four days in the slammer for driving under the influence.)

Now, one of their stepping stones toward worldwide fame will be no longer. Cable channel E! Entertainment Television has announced that the final episode of the fifth season of The Simple Life will be the ...

Nicole Richie arrested

Nicole Richie was arrested this morning in Burbank, California, for driving under the influence. The Simple Life star was booked into the Glendale police department at 4:50 a.m. and released at 7:15 a.m.

Police pulled Richie over after witnesses reported her driving the wrong way on highway 134. Officials tell TMZ.com that Richie admitted to smoking pot and taking the prescription drug Vicodin.

Richie was arrested and charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, which could bring jail or a $1,000 fine. She was released on $15,000 bail.

"She failed the field sobriety test at the field, so she was placed under arrest," a Glendale police officer told reporters. "And she provided a sample for testing later on."

The police report indicates that Richie, who has denied having an eating disorder, weighed in at just 85 lbs.

Paris Hilton sues Web site

Paris Hilton has sued to shut down a Web site that displays her diaries, photos, and other personal property in what lawyers for the celebrity heiress call "one of the most reprehensible invasions of privacy ever committed."

Hilton's lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Los Angeles Monday, says her belongings were taken from storage after a moving company failed to pay the bill and pictures of them exhibited on the Internet to anyone paying a $39.97 fee to the Web site ParisExposed.com.

"This action seeks to enjoin perhaps one of the most single egregious and reprehensible invasions of privacy ever committed against an individual," Hilton's attorneys wrote in the lawsuit, which claims copyright infringement, invasion of privacy, and violation of her right to publicity.

According to the lawsuit, the items were put in storage two years ago by Hilton, 25, when she and her ...

E! renews reality show despite celebutant feud.

Simple Life renewed again

Hollywood just can't let go of a good thing.

The E! Network has renewed the reality show The Simple Life, starring feuding socialites Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, for a fifth season. The show was picked up by E! when Fox canceled it last year.

The show features once-best friends Hilton and Richie, as they're forced to do awkward, "regular"-person tasks like going to work and performing household chores. The future of the show became uncertain when Hilton and Richie had a public falling out in 2005.

The reason for the feud between the two is still unknown, although reports speculate Richie held a viewing party for Hilton's notorious sex tape, One Night In Paris.

During production of the fourth season, the two filmed their scenes separately. Producers later cut the footage together to create Simple Life ...

LA prosecutors say Paris Hilton violated probation.

Paris in prison?

Prosecutors asked a judge Thursday to revoke Paris Hilton's probation for reckless driving, which could lead to jail time for the celebrity socialite, the City Attorney's Office said.

A hearing has been set for April 17 for prosecutors to argue that Hilton, 26, violated the terms of her probation by knowingly driving with a suspended license, said Nick Velasquez, a spokesman for the city attorney, Rocky Delgadillo.

The hotel heiress and star of the reality TV show The Simple Life was sentenced to three years probation in January after pleading no contest--the equivalent of a guilty plea--to alcohol-related reckless driving.

Five weeks later, police pulled Hilton over again in the city of West Hollywood for driving without headlights and impounded her car, a $190,000 Bentley, when they discovered her license had been suspended, authorities said.

The case was then referred to the City Attorney's Office.

Paris Hilton will record Mafia song

It might be hard out there for a pimp, but it's easy out there for a celebrity ho.

Simple Life star Paris Hilton has been recording tracks for her upcoming solo album, and she has enlisted the help of Three 6 Mafia, the rap group that won an Academy Award in February for its song from the film Hustle and Flow, "It's Hard out There for a Pimp." The gold-toned hotel heiress joined the group in the studio to record tracks for an upcoming solo album.

On Tuesday, Mafia member Jordan Houston told his hometown newspaper, The Memphis Commerical Appeal, that the group was approached by Hilton, who said they simply must work together.

"We ran into her at a William Morris agency party, and she said she liked our song "Stay Fly" and asked if we would work with her. We let her listen to a dance ...

The Simple Life is a totally unscripted series starring everyone's favorite spoiled socialites, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie!

The show's first 3 seasons were shown on FOX. But seasons 4 and 5 are now on E! with reruns of the first 3 seasons.

During the shows first season, Paris and Nicole got a reality check when they learned what it was really like to live among the middle-as they moved from their posh Beverly Hills pads to the small town of Altus, Arkansas (population 817) for a one-month stay.

Paris and Nicole were horribly inept at their jobs, which were the first they had ever had-including gigs at a dairy farm and a fast-food joint. But pretty soon they were up to their old tricks, picking up guys and causing mischief along the way, all in an effort to spice up the lives of their small town family and to win the hearts of the town's simple, kind-hearted residents. In the end, the girls survived the challenge, and most certainly served to prove that you can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl!

During The Simple Life 2: Road Trip the outrageous Hilton and Richie were again stripped of their cell phones, cash and credit cards and set off on a trip across country in their hot pink pick-up and air stream trailer. Departing from Miami Beach, FL, and ending up in Beverly Hills, CA, the girls had to navigate their way through a wild ride full of new jobs, host families, and small towns across the southern U.S.

Now, the girls are back once again and are ready for their next challenge in The Simple Life 3: Interns.(Nicole Richie's final season) This time around, the girls will travel throughout the Northeast United States via Greyhound bus while visiting families and taking on an assortment of odd jobs from zoo keeping to Burger King.They will intern at a job for two days, on the second day they will be graded on their behavior and performance, from an A to an F (The girls' average score) If they complete the job as directed they each receive $100.00 (the managers deduct sometime... They even get fired! The girls stay with families each week and usually contribute by cooking a home cooked meal or preparing a sexy birthday night! This season the girls are really put to the test!

Theme Song Lyrics

Let's take two girls, both filthy rich (Voice in the background: Hey isn't that Paris Hilton?) From the bright lights, Down to the sticks. From velvet ropes, To cattle pulls.(To workin' folks SL3) Let's take away their limousines, Their credit cards, and shoppin' sprees Well they're both spoilt rotten Will they cry when they hit bottom? Heaven knows who can survive This simple(Country, Road Trip, Intern, Living, Campers)kind of life (Paris: Where the hell are we?)moreless
