Paris to Gov. Ahnuld: Pardon Me, Please!

5/8/2007 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton is begging the Governator to give her a break -- and is pleading with her fans to sign a petition asking for her pardon.

On her MySpace page this morning, she says her friend Joshua Capone started a petition, and asks that her fans "help and sihn [sic] it," adding, "I LOVE YOU ALL!!!" The petition takes the somewhat puzzling tack of pointing out that she's an heiress to the Hilton fortune, and that Paris "provides hope for young people all over the U.S. and the world."

Meanwhile, TMZ has confirmed that Paris met with her longtime rep Elliot Mintz, whom she fired over the weekend, and now Us Weekly is reporting that Mintz has been rehired by Hilton. Later yesterday, Paris was accompanied by Mintz to an event called, appropriately enough, Sober USA. An Us witness says though Paris "held it together" at the event, her eyes were tearing. (At right, the merry pranksters at www.prettyontheoutside.com have produced their own image of Paris in the clink.)




Rosie -- Getting a New $40 Million "View"?


Rosie O'Donnell is on the hunt for a new gig that gives her plenty of independence, but she might be dreaming if she thinks she'll get the $40 million she's looking for from a more traditional studio deal. According to Broadcasting and Cable, O'Donnell wants creative freedom over her new show, but she won't be able to get as much cash under that arrangement, says a mag source. One possibility is that she'll do a show on CBS and guest host on the Early Show. Another is that she'll land on FOX stations, but her recent bashing of FOX overlord Rupert Murdoch may have scuttled that plan. Still, as one exec explains, "she may be a polarizing figure, but if we can get 5%-10% of those who agree with her and a few of those who don't, we would have a hit."

It Takes a Village to Make Anna Nicole


Tonight's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" features an Anna Nicole-alike in its storyline, and according to the New York Post, it was no small task to get actress Kristy Swanson to do her best Anna. Despite the blonde and buxom Swanson's natural similarities to Anna, Law & Order producers used three hairdressers, three make-up artists, four wardrobe specialists, and a "host of grips, electrical technicians and production assistants" to get the look just right.

Party Favors: Usher -- the New Britney? ... Owen and Kate Get Dissed at Tom Ford ... Borat's Brother Composes for Kazakhstan


In one fell swoop, Usher Raymond has fired his mom (as his manager) and his publicist, according to the New York Daily News gossips. Both have been Usher's team since the beginning, but discord with Usher's fiancée is reportedly causing the first firing, and of the second, his newly ex-rep Simone Smalls says, "Change is good!" ... Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson tried to get into the new Tom Ford men's store in Manhattan just after closing time, reports Gatecrasher, but were frostily denied by the manager, who had to be gently reminded of their identity before letting them browse the store. ... Erran Baron Cohen, brother of Sacha, was chosen by none other than the West Kazakhstan Philharmonic Orchestra to compose a piece for its big debut in London last Friday. Erran also composed the score for "Borat."

WHY IS PARIS ANY DIFFERENT than any other law breaker? Don't do the crime if you can't do the crime Paris. I'm astounded that her and her family think they are royalty in the U.S. Throw her skanky little white ass in the slammer, shut up, and do your time. Mommy and Daddy would be fighting tooth and nail if a drunk hit you in your car, wouldn't they?

Rosie will land on her feets because there are people that believe every word she says. She is a kook, but that sells. Anna Nicole this is really over, and for the love of God just let her RIP. Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson will not last because when a relationship is builted on Adultery and cheating it will never work!!!

If Arnold pardons Paris, he'd be committing political suicide.
Rosie wants $40 million?! WTF? I'll give her 40 cents to keep her fat a$$ off the airwaves.
Poor ANS. Hollywood just won't let her rest in peace. It's sad.
Usher should've gotten rid of his momager years ago. I know he's engaged but there was a gay rumor floating around. Who can tell me if he really is or not?

Paris needs to just suck it up and face the fact that she is going to jail. I am so sick and tired of these celebs thinking it's ok to break the law. A "normal everyday" American would be thrown in jail and the case not wouldn't be given a second thought. Lessons need to be learned and my biggest fear is that the only way the lesson will be learned is at the expense of an innocent life because people don't designate a driver or damn, they are rich, get a limo. So Ms. Hilton, quit your bitching and pleading to the governer and your "friends" to get you out of this. I'm going to quote the good old saying "YOU DO THE CRIME, YOU PAY THE TIME!!!!"

Having a bunch of 13 year olds sign a petition to keep Paris out of jail isn't going to convince anybody! Paris, you drove drunk! Then you drove when your license was suspended! That means JAIL. Ignorance is not bliss. Date an attorney and he can fill you in on the law!

Dottie, you're damn right that wing nut will be commiting political suicide. This will be very interesting to see what he does next?
Anything's possible in this country. Just look at how stupid the Californians were.

They put a FOREIGN BODY BUILDER IN THE GOVERNOR'S MANSION !!!!! DUH.
The guy couldn't even speak the English language when he was competing in the U.S.
ONLY IN AMERICA FOLKS !

I will be so frustrated if Paris gets out of jail time. I'm sick of seeing celebrities doing illegal things and then being granted a softer ruling. She broke the law and should do the time. I don't think ANYONE is above the law and if you do the crime you must do the time as well.

There should be a petition to make sure she keeps her sentence. She shouldn't be pardoned by the Governor of California.

LMAO Paris provides hope to young girls everywhere? Hope of what? Daddy becoming rich and buying you everything? Hope of having a chihuahau to dress up? Or hope of making some cheap porn? I think that girl has had one flash bulb too many go off in her face.
