Paris to Do Half-Time in "Special Needs Unit"

5/17/2007 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton is already getting a break -- she's going to serve "about 23 days" in a "special needs" unit, officials said yesterday, about the half the time she was sentenced to in her conviction.

Her sentence was shortened for "good behavior," which apparently includes just showing up for her last court date. L.A. County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said she'll be staying in a two-person cell reserved for "high-profile" inmates, and that she'll have at least an hour a day to shower, watch TV, play outside, or gab on the phone.

Paris will also be separated from the general inmate population.

Jen – Brangelina's "Totally a Joke"


Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston doesn't think much of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. In fact, she's dismissing them as "totally a joke" and also doesn't seem to care that Angie's admitting that she and Brad conceived Shiloh before his divorce to Jen was final, according to Us.

Jen isn't angry over Jolie's revelation, which appears in Reader's Digest, and "couldn't care less what happened" after she and Pitt were separated, says an Us source. Another friend of Jen's says that she and Brad haven't spoken in "a long time" and that she's not exactly BFFs with Brangelina.

Sanjaya Censored on "Idol"


They may have let him do pretty much anything he wanted with his hair -- and his execrable singing -- but when Sanjaya Malakar wanted to sing Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz" on "American Idol," that's when producers drew the line. Sanjaya told KISS 106.1 (via MSNBC) in Seattle that he wanted to sing the Janis classic on country night, but "Idol" balked -- because Ford is one of the show's major sponsors.
Meanwhile, Sanjy says he's glad to be back home in Washington state after the glare of the spotlight on "Idol," because now, as before, he can walk the streets "singing really, really loudly" and not fear getting "ripped on" by Simon. After "Idol," there oughta be a city ordinance against that kind of thing.

Party Favors: "Idol" Shocker – Melinda Goes Home! ... Cruise to Do "Birdcage"? ... Prince Harry Not Going to Iraq


Odds-on favorite and vocal virtuoso Melinda Doolittle got the boot on last night's "American Idol," shocking everyone, including Simon Cowell, one of her biggest fans. It's the second year in a row -- remember Chris Daughtry? -- that the clear favorite's gotten the chop. ... Uh, what? Tom Cruise and producing partner Paula Wagner told MGM execs in a conference call obtained by HollywoodInterrupted.com that they're working on a sequel to "The Birdcage." ... England's Prince Harry won't be going to serve in Iraq after all, because of "specific threats" made against him by insurgents. Harry is said to be "disappointed."

While I like to drink, there is no excuse for drinking and driving, especially when Paris Hilton can afford to pay a driver 24x7....I was almost killed by a drunk driver and have lived ever since [ 24 years ] in daily pain from the permanent injuries. Drunk driving kills and injures the innocent. I travel a lot and specifically AVOID Hilton Hotels, and, SO SHOULD YOU !!!!

Good behavior! She hasn't done any time yet!!

Just because she came to court she gets time knocked off!
I know folks in the real world that don't get that kind of love!

Not even in jail yet and still getting the star treatment. Thanks Mommy!
Maybe they will roll out a red carpet all the way to her cell on her way in too!

I'm fine with 23 days just do the time Paris and cut the jokes!

Well well ... didn't see this one coming! Paris Hilton gets away with it again!

Celebs run this world, and this goes to prove it! If i had of been caught driving under the influence I would have probably been sent to jail straight away. If not and i was cautioned like Paris and had my license suspended - BUT then caught driving - jail time for me, or any other GENERAL member of the public!

It's a bloody joke!!!

Does Paris get filming privileges? Like Jail Hotel Hilton. What a miserable llittle rich high-school dropout bitch. And what a corrupt system that takes the Hilton money to make things easy for simple-minded Paris and her kiss-my-ass family.

TMZ........hey, what took you so long to put the NEWS regarding Paris on? I read this LAST NITE.....9:30pm Central Time.

It's a JOKE that her time is cut in half........ya, any other Regular Joe or Jane would have had to serve their sentence ASAP and not have a waiting period to report to jail.

Money sure does buy you everything.

Paris Hilton dodges the bullet again? Spoiled, rich, Diva, gets her way due to being a what...spoiled, rich, Diva? My gosh, what kind of messages are being sent out to children. If you are rich, lie, steal, do porno, act like a Diva, have no education, and drive drunk it's okay? Scary how the law allows this kind of garbage to go on. High profile inmate? What is that? They may as well get her a room at the er...HILTON!
