Paris Gets Her Point Across Through Barbara Walters

This morning on The View, Barbara Walters took a moment to discuss a rather interesting collect call she received yesterday afternoon -- from an incarcerated Paris Hilton. Obviously P didn't think her Saturday statement got her I'm a changed person message across enough. After telling Walters about dropping her appeal and the difficulties of the first few days in jail, she had this to say:

"I'm not the same person I was," she said. "I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that. I have been thinking that I want to do different things when I am out of here. I have become much more spiritual. God has given me this new chance.

She went on to say that "God has released her." Wow, heavy stuff. She certainly has gone to great lengths to sound super spiritual, but I do wonder what it will be like when she gets out? Same old Paris?

Thanks to DListed for uploading the video!

Well, we'll see if she is changed when she's out of jail. Until then, it's just words.

I'm sick of Paris. I thought her time in jail would mean no news on her for a bit. I guess I was being naive. ::sigh:: And who is she kidding. After a few months of being back out in the "real world" and she'll be the same old paris.

Barbara Walters is such a buzz kill, a conversational dead end. Yes, she's respected and all but she doesn't allow anyone to have an opinion or to bring some obvious comedy to a situation. I always seethe while watching her and how she speaks AT others.

She's read 3 books, 2 newspapers daily, and "hundreds and hundreds of letters" - all this in what - like, 2 days? That's impressive. And somewhere, in all that time, she has found God too. WOW.

Wow. I think she's realizing that after the unbelievably pathetic show she put on leaving the courtroom on Friday, she's going to need to do something pretty drastic to have anyone like her anymore. Let's see what happens when she gets out.

She is saying anything she can (with the help of her publicist) to make people not hate her anymore. I think she finally figured out she is very unliked. EVERYONE wanted her in jail. I think she will play a role for a while and go right back to her "no reguard for anyone" self.

please everyone knows that babs is friends with the hiltons. she's supposedly gonna do paris's first interview once she is sprung. as for paris's statement - i don't believe that crock for one minute. so her spirit doesn't like how other people are viewing her? well, if her actions were better then people would view her better. seems like she's still blaming other people. and if she did truely learn her lesson and is determined to do the time, then why the hell bring up that a normal person might get 10% of their sentence and poor little paris has to do 30% or the hope that she will be released cause of overcrowding. Hate the burst her little bubble and all the parasite fans out there, but overcrowding wouldn't effect paris one little bit. overcrowding is a problem in the general area where the common folks do time, but she's in the vip area, where's it's vacant. the only reason michelle rodrigez got sprung early was cause she was serving time in the general public area, not the vip area. As for this whole new hilton side, we'll see if it last. i mean, after her whole sex tape thing, she said she was turning over a new leaf - and that whole thing lasted only a few moments before she went back to her partying ways. she's still lying. she said she wasn't dragged away yelling, kicking, and screaming, when there are numerous reports and witnesses to contradict that. at the mtv movie awards, she said she had the option of going to pay jail - which was in fact false, as the judge said she had to do her time in jail with no other option. Unless of course, that option of pay jail was merely paying off baca so that she could do house arrest - so sorry it didn't pan out for ya paris. but whatever, bacca already reduced her sentence back down to 23 days again. and can someone explain the bacca's reasoning behind springing her in the first place? he said she was detoriating cause she wasn't taking her medication that she needed - so why not make her take it? i mean, if i ever land in jail, i guess i'll tell them that i don't take any meds, then later say i need to take some meds that i said i didn't take before so that i could get out of there earlier.

I agree with Mello, if she come out of prison and actually does something good, something genuinely charitable done for the sake of charity alone and not publicity which, as Ginger says, she opens her own wallet to fund and doesn't just lend her name to, then I will be the first person to say "Good, great, she actually changed and that's a great thing." However, I'll be saying that when I'm revived from the six-week coma that I fell into after the near-fatal shock induced heart attack I suffered upon finding out that Paris Hilton did something kind and selfless, because that is one heck of an "IF" That said, she's really in a no-win situation right now, because even if she leaves prison in a nun's habbit and turns her house into an orphanage, can you just imaging the response?? "Oh, she's just doing it for the attention!!" etc etc... Yup, which ever way you look at it the media machine is biting back BIG TIME! Couldn't have happened to a nicer person ;) Nyara, you're a scream! :ROTFL:

Actions speak louder than words...so if she means all this, she needs to really follow through. I'm with mello.....everyone can change, and for her sake, I really hope she does.

I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt here. If what she said is indeed true, then good for her! Maybe this was some sort of a wake up call for her, anyway, she has the next 6 weeks or so to think about this.

We'll just have to wait and see her behavior when she's out of the pokey. I bet she'll be whorin' around town in no time.

OMG Barbara ENOUGH! We get it you heart Paris. I'm with Joy Behar Paris is an adult & should have understood the consequences of her actions. Everyone knows not to drink & drive & everyone knows not to drive if you don't have a license. She can well afford a driver. Maybe she should hire someone to drive her to school to finish HS & then maybe take a college class or 2. Whatever Paris. Get a brain.
