Paris Speaks, Will Not Appeal

After what was described as a difficult first night in the Twin Towers jail medical ward during which Paris was described as "despondent" and "fragile," she finally released a statement this afternoon. She's remained pretty quiet during this whole mess, but apparently she felt it was time to speak, or at least have someone translate her thoughts into a carefully worded statement. It read:

"Today I told my attorneys not to appeal the judge's decision. While I greatly appreciate the Sheriff's concern for my health and welfare, after meeting with doctors I intend to serve my time as ordered by the judge.

This is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. During the past several days, I have had a lot of time to reflect and have already learned a bitter, but important lesson from this experience.

As I have said before, I hope others will learn from my mistake. I have also had time to read the mail from my fans. I very much appreciate all of their good wishes and hope they will keep their letters coming.

I must also say that I was shocked to see all of the attention devoted to the amount of time I would spend in jail for what I had done by the media, public and city officials. I would hope going forward that the public and the media will focus on more important things, like the men and women serving our country in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world."

Could it be that Paris is finally sick of attention? Is Paris really a changed woman? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Wow, P. That was some speech. Very touching. Who did you hire to write it for you? -_-'' Haha, no seriously, it's hard to believe but, maybe, just maybe, the girl really has changed. We'll see. And I agree to what she said though, people need to focus on more important news than Hollywood. But hey, what's the fun in that?

It's going to take more than the 4 or 5 days she's spent so far to get her to "change." I'm not even sure she'll change after the 45 days. It might be humbling, but I doubt it.

Haha, nobody thinks she actually wrote that, do they? I hope she realized it'll be easier if she just does her thing and get it over with; appealing it and making it into a gigantic deal will only make it worse. She needs to just do her time and get out so she can pull her next trashy publicity stunt.

I would hope going forward that the public and the media will focus on more important things... oh come on ! without the media, it'd be "paris.. who?". she obviously lives for it.

Well those are the very good words of a publicist! Anyways i hope someone reminds her of those lines, ". I would hope going forward that the public and the media will focus on more important things, like the men and women serving our country in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world." esp. after she gets done with this becos I'm sure she's going to be on some MJOR media blitz selling her story. And her "own" words are going to bite her in the a$$ - hypocrite.

Ladies... she was supposed to attend DUI education classes... didn't go! She was offered community service... ditched it! She was told not to drive and to hire a driver... she got back behinds the wheel! She was given chance after chance after chance to avoid jail... and she blew it! She blames her 'people' for not telling her she had to do those things.. she's grown enough to drink, do drugs, make sex tapes.. she's grown enough to read her own court papers! Stop making excuses for her... she's a nit-wit who screwed up and she deserves every bit of punishment and admonishing she's getting.

i'm glad she's sick of the attention because i'm sick of hearing about her. this is, however, the one piece of celeb gossip that is 100% accurate when you hear stories about it.

She's not appealing...because SHE CAN'T APPEAL! Is not that she turn goody goody from one day to another...according to TMZ she's not right in the head...not even drinking water..and hasn't stop crying...how is that "mental state" of hers can she "write" something like this??? to think she did is ridiculous...like somebody said...they (hiltons, lawyers) KNOW there are no valid reasons an appeal will succeed. SHE'S BACK IN JAIL BECAUSE..according to the first sentence she was NEVER to finish her sentence with house arrest NOR electronic monitoring...that's to the Sheriff...SHE DID BOTH! So the judge can find her in comptent..or just simple VIOLATION OF FIRST SENTENCE..she gets sent back and the 23 deal gets cancelled. SIMPLE...JUSTICE! :evil:

I first felt kind of bad for her but found out PARIS IS VERY RACIST. There are so many videos of her making RACIST remarks and derogatory comments about poorer people. Karma is a pain.

she is in county, that is where anyone else would serve time. as far as being in the general population, um no, they would cut that bitch in a heartbeat and lapd doesnt need that kind of publicity right now.

Paris is a loser. She is still getting a pretty good deal out of this situation though--she should be doing the time in a regular cell with everyone else!

I'd love to know why the sentence was taken back up to the 45 days.

I would love to believe that Paris is being sincere in her words, since I like to believe that people are inherently good...but i am dubious that she even WROTE that statement. More likely, a publicist "put together" her words for her...so whether or not she follows through...we shall see.
