Paris Hilton Going To Jail

Do not pass “Go.” Do not collect $200. Do not say, “That’s hot!”

Sometimes a celebrity is just asking for it. It’s one thing for her to get arrested for DUI. Luckily she didn’t hit anyone when she was driving drunk. But the fact that she was driving on a suspended license shows that she has not been humbled by any of the mistakes in her life.

Sometimes celebrities will self-destruct until they hurt themselves or someone else. So the only thing that Paris Hilton has hurt is the reputation of her and her family. I do not know what the wealth is like of the Hilton family, but I can imagine that Paris’ parents are embarrassed by her actions.

A judge ruled that Paris Hilton will have to go to jail for 45 days for a parole violation. Her license was suspended because of her DUI conviction. She is claiming ignorance, stating that she didn’t know that her license was suspended. What surprises me is that with her wealth and ability to hire a high-priced attorney, I would assume that she would clearly be informed of her suspended license. Since she signed paperwork indicating that her license would be suspended, she cannot claim ignorance.

Some people may feel that the judge is trying to make an example of Paris. Maybe that would be a good thing. This past year has been filled with multiple celebrity arrests for drunk driving. Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Eve, Haley Joel Osment, and can we ever forget Mel Gibson? I feel that getting a DUI has become too common for celebrities who have been known to party too hard and live destructive lives. Most of the celebrities I have mentioned could easily afford a driver. Maybe not Haley Joel Osment, considering that his career has bombed since he starred in The Sixth Sense.

Paris Hilton has not hit rock bottom yet. Her porn video did not give her the wakeup call that she needed. She’s an embarrassment to her family. I actually believe that going to jail will give her the wakeup call that she needs more than any celebrity that I can name. Hollywood is filled with people with bad reputations and Paris Hilton has one of the worst ones.

Going to jail is not just what Paris deserves, but truly what she needs. I think that she could end up a better person after serving her sentence.
