Diary of a Mad Hilton?
By James L. Hirsen, J.D., Ph.D.
As Paris Hilton (minus her pet Chihuahuas and cell phones) readies herself to spend 23 days in the slammer at the L.A. Century Regional Detention Center, she's also busy prepping a new book.
The former high school dropout has made a lot of money turning headlines into bottom lines. The Internet home sex video that served to inflate her fame quotient appeared just prior to the premiere of her reality TV show "The Simple Life."
Now Paris is planning the release of a prison diary, which is apparently set for later this year, according to the New York Daily News. This means Paris' punishment will end up stuffing even more dollars into her already heavily padded pockets.
The hotel heiress wisely stayed away from the Hollywood party scene as she came to grips with her inevitable jail time.
While in prison, she will reportedly receive special treatment for her own protection. And she'll also be assigned to a section of the prison facility that is separate from an area where hardened criminals are held.
Hilton will allegedly have one handpicked cellmate who has been incarcerated for a traffic-related offense.
Her grand entrance into the prison will likely resemble a red carpet affair. Every imaginable media are sure to be present, snapping pictures, streaming video and profusely punditing.
The big question is who'll be first to get the shot of the quintessential party girl in her non-designer jumpsuit.
While Paris' fortunes may be going up, another Hollywood star's career may be headed south.
Charlie Sheen wants the public to know that reports about him nixing the narration of a questionable 9/11 documentary are wrong.
The "Loose Change-Final Cut" film deals with the same ideas that Rosie O'Donnell has been pushing; the theory being that some of the buildings that collapsed on Sept. 11 were not brought down by aircraft but rather were destroyed by explosives, which were planted inside the structures.
"My views and convictions regarding the events of 9/11 have not wavered. I still firmly believe the citizens of this great country, especially the family members of those tragically lost, deserve a much more accurate and thorough investigation surrounding the horrific events," Sheen said in a press release.
"The suspicious fact that certain relevant testimonies were not included in the Keen Commission's final report, discredits the majority of their findings," Sheen added.
Sheen advocates a "bi-partisan, democratically selected panel" to investigate the matter, "not some tepid rehash of Bush-serving lap-dogs cherry picking evidence to support erroneous and fictional ‘magic bullet' explanations."
"I'm baffled as well by the fact bin Laden's crimes listed on the FBI's most wanted list do not include those of 9/11," the actor railed.
Evidently, Sheen is undecided about whether he'll volunteer to be the poster boy for the "Loose Change-Final Cut" flick.
"I await the newest version to be presented to me, at which point I will make my decision to participate (or not) based on the film's content and merit," Sheen shared.
