So in case you have been avoiding the media (a good thing, sometimes), you’ll have seen that Paris Hilton’s going away for a month and a half. Unsurprisingly, she and her parents are throwing quite the hissy-fit about it. Paris is calling it “cruel and unwarranted,” and her mother is calling it a “waste of taxpayers’ money.” (If the elder Hilton is so worried about the taxpayers’ money, then why is she wasting more by having Paris’s lawyer try to appeal the sentence?) I find it utterly disgusting that these people, who are clearly completely out of touch with reality, believe they are above the law. Good on the judge for not letting the celebrity hoopla get in the way of his ruling and sentence. I mean, it’s 45 days, not life, for crying out loud. I also think it’s hilarious how one of her fans wrote the Governator asking for a stay on her sentence, almost as if she’s going to Death Row or something. What a crock of crap.
Paris’s inability to own up to what she did based on the fact that she won’t get to take her chihuahua behind bars with her makes her a deplorable person for people to look up to, and I quite frankly have never seen her allure. Sadly, young girls will continue to look up to her as a role model…for what, I don’t know. Sigh, society.
