The Z List - This Week's Biggest Losers 05/05/07

5/5/2007 4:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

SplashNewsOnline.comNews of a Toastee Toof sex tape this week caused about as much excitement as the notion of "Flavor of Love 3." So instead, we prefer to hit rewind on some of the folks who embarrassed themselves with their clothes on.

Paris Hilton: Somewhere, deep down in Nostradamus' predictions, we believe the great seer foresaw that when both "Girls Gone Wild" guru Joe Francis and Bentley fender bender Paris Hilton were simultaneously served with jail time, it would be a portentous sign that the party was coming to an end. In the wake of yesterday's 45 days probation violence sentence, everything suddenly takes on new meaning for Paris: her cell, her sidekick, her bitch ... and who would have thought that of all the recent celebrity DUI-ers, it would be the unflappable Ms. Hilton who would get yanked straight past Malibu rehab to actually pay for her crime. It's a bonanza, of course, for us here at TMZ, but September 7, 2006 (the date she was arrested in Hollywood last fall) is now her September 11.

Charles BarkleyCharles Barkley: For anyone who watched "Inside the NBA" following the stunning Dallas Mavericks - Golden State Warriors elimination game on Thursday, it was a new benchmark in role model pouting. The TNT color commentator was crestfallen that the outcome of another Game Six earlier in the day between Utah and Houston meant that he was going to have to cancel a trip to Vegas today for the Oscar De La Hoya - Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight. Even Ernie Johnson and Kenny "the Jet" Smith seemed taken aback as Chuck connected the dots for the first time, on air. It was at once hilarious, weird and inappropriate (via Barkley's hyping of TNT's Saturday night pay-per-view competition). We're not sure who Barkley has his pugilistic money on, but if his wager comes up short, it could get even uglier.

John PetersJon Peters:
It's not quite on the scale of a "thoughtless little pig" bicoastal voice mail, but it's still cold. As cold as the overnight feel of terrazzo and brass for Hollywood Boulevard's homeless. Just as mega-producer Peters ("Batman", "Superman Returns") was getting out of his limo on Monday, with kids in tow to accept a star on the Walk of Fame, a process server slapped him with very different kudos: legal papers from his third ex-wife, Christine Forsyth. Peters, who has countered Forsyth's unpaid child support claims with the you're-living-free-in-my-mansion defense, hasn't been this shown-up since a 1996 book that chronicled his Sony executive suite excesses. Maybe he can commiserate with Eminem, the male star he hopes to coerce into yet another version of "A Star is Born."

chloe sevigneyChloë Sevigny: Speaking of Paris, this gal thinks she's trashy. So there. In an entirely irritating interview with Style Magazine, the 32-year-old co-star of "Zodiac" covers the gamut; from non-simulated on-screen sex (she regrets the famous scene with ex-boyfriend Vincent Gallo in "The Brown Bunny"), to the lure of 4:20 (it started when she was a kid). People either love or hate Sevigny's generally mopey onscreen M.O., but save the misdirected PR for when you actually have something worthwhile to promote, girl. Coming on the heels of a New York Observer article last month that categorized Sevigny, Clare Danes and upcoming FOX sitcom star Parker Posey as has-beens, it's enough to make one pine for "Bunny," which Roger Ebert called the worst film in the history of the Cannes Film Festival.


sargentAlvin Sargent: The heavyweight, two-time Oscar-winning screenwriter ("Julia," "Ordinary People") was brought back by brothers Sam and Ivan Raimi to ensure that "Spider-Man 3" had the same zip as "Spider-Man 2." But the 75-year-old elder statesman is getting zapped by the critics for what they feel is a tediously tangled story web, knocking Spidey's RottenTomatoes.com stock down a bearish 30 points (from "Spider-Man 2's" 93% Tomatometer rating to a "Spider-Man 3" Friday score of 62%). We all know this summer's first blockbuster is critic-proof, destined to set a gargantuan new domestic B.O. record this weekend in a record 4,252 theaters. But maybe Alvin should plan on shuffleboard with the 84-year-old Stan Lee rather than any grandiose plans for more melodrama.

TMZ writer, I understand you feel that Paris' party life has come to an end, but do not refer to 9/11 unless you're regarding that day with some respect. It's not a joke a lot of innocent people lost their lives.

Its probably the best thing that could happen to Paris if she takes this experience and builds on it it should harden her and make her artistic stuff even more interesting and valid. I am hoping that it does since she has a rare mind and a great deal more potential. Its bad news for the haters though, I think. They will be hearing a great deal more about Paris, for a very long time to come. But then again, they'll enjoy the chance of attacking her since it will distract them from the pointless nightmares of their own lives.

Its a pretty typical american story though, the monsters walk free and the unlucky get jail time.

How come if Paris is on 15 months probation it showed 05/04/07, where she was "driving" and had to back down from a Garbage truck on a narrow road? I believe 15 months probation is not up and it could have been right after court Friday, May 4, 2007, where she was "DRIVING" her expensive car ALONE again. If that was me, the first ticket I got for drinking and driving, the Judge would have thrown the book at me. I have a spotless driving record. I believe the rich get away with WAY too much. Driving drunk for the everyday person they take their car away, a huge fine and lose their drivers license at least a year in California. Let's stop spoiling all these rich little "stars" with no talent except their parents have a lot of money. They set a horrible example for the young kids that watch them. I pray she goes to jail for the full 45 days and acting "dumb" does not work this time. Paris has NO talent except money from her parents. Sad at her age as so many young girls believe this is how it should be. It is amazing she has not killed someone yet.

I think she's getting what she deserves. How can she possibly try and blame her reps for not properly explaining that her D.L. was suspended? She's 25 years old! She shouldn't need and interpreter to tell her her punishment, she was there when it happened! What a moron. Good for the court system for not letting her off the hook for being a celebrity.

It's getting close to Mother's Day---and I celebrate it without my mom---why? Because someone like Paris Hilton, driving on a suspended license, recklessly, and intoxicated killed her.

Her mom laughed and was visibly upset at her sentence---at least she has a mom to laugh---but, as one of my debate students always aptly points out---"it all starts at home---blame the parents" I would be all for her parents joining in on some jail time because obviously she has been programmed since a young age to be an inconsiderate, carelly, and vapid individual. If you grow up your entire life with people always gloryfying your every move and instillig in you the idea that you are "entitled"--you wind up just as Paris Hilton has.

What is even sadder, is that thanks to some media groups/journalists who essentially glorify who she is and what she does, further imparting the idea that her terminal lack of character is something to pay attening to, we have a generation of young girls with lemming mentalities that want to emulate her because it is all about the attention.

45 Days---and the news media is detailing her cell, everything she is going to be without, the appeals, etc. "I didn't do it on purpose, I'm so sorry." She would have been better off not saying that because at age 26 it makes her look even more pathetically careless as an individual because it means she didn't pay attention to the documents she signed previously----

This entire incident was caused by the word "attention"---the lack of it on the part of her parents to actually be parents and instill basic functioning mechanisms in their child--too much of it on the part of the media who reinforces the ideas her parents gave her like a bell to Pavlov's dog-----and a lack of personal attention--the real, true, soul searching kind on the part of a grown woman---wake up everyone and be grateful for life--do something useful with it---pay attention!

Happy Mother's Day mom!
