Paris Hilton Has Been Freed From Jail At Last

From a breathless Reuters:

Paris Hilton is greeted by our watchdog media upon her release.

Paris Hilton released from jail

By Steve Gorman Tue Jun 26

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Hotel heiress Paris Hilton, who commanded as much attention behind bars as on the Hollywood party scene, regained her freedom early on Tuesday after serving three weeks in jail for violating probation in a drunken-driving case.

The incarceration of the 26-year-old multimillionaire, who lampooned her own persona as a clueless child of privilege on the reality TV show “The Simple Life,” ignited a worldwide media frenzy and debate about celebrity justice…

In the end, Hilton served 22 days in detention, counting her day-long home confinement. The original 45-day term set by the judge was effectively cut in half under a standard credit applied for good behavior.

Hilton emerged from the Century Regional Detention Facility in suburban Lynwood at about 12:15 a.m. (0715 GMT) with throngs of photographers and camera crews waiting for her.

Dressed casually in dark slacks and a short-sleeved top, Hilton made no statement but smiled broadly as she walked briskly down a paparazzi-lined path to a sports utility vehicle where she was embraced by her mother, Kathy.

The Hiltons left quickly, headed for a Hilton family home in the exclusive enclave of Bel-Air, with several vehicles full of photographers tailing them all the way.

Hilton was scheduled to give her first post-jail television interview on Wednesday on CNN’s “Larry King Live” show, after ABC and NBC last week dropped competing offers to grant her a major broadcast network exclusive…

Our long national nightmare is finally over.

(Of course it has only just begun.)

Still, I am disappointed that she didn’t make a jailhouse conversion to Islam and come out in a burka.

Yes, Ms. Hilton is famous for her insightful “lampooning” and all-around self-awareness.
