TMZ has learned that Paris Hilton suffers from extreme Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and claustrophobia, and these conditions may have triggered the Sheriff's decision to spring her from Lynwood Jail last week.
We're told Hilton is taking Adderall for her ADD -- which is costing the state a pretty penny. Although our sources were not specific, we're told Hilton was not receiving all of her medications at Lynwood. As a result, Hilton was having severe panic attacks in jail. There were times she was so debilitated, she could not push the panic button in her cell.
As for how she's doing, she's depressed but not really crying. She has a pencil and a pad of paper and she's spending her time writing down her thoughts. We're also told she's losing weight -- although she's no Nicole Richie.
Brit Gone Wild
Britney Spears just loves showing off all that junk inside her trunk.
The mother of two was spotted outside Joseph's in Hollywood last night, where she gave the wildly snapping paparazzi an eyeful of her once taut tush as she hopped into her car. The crowd of paps can even be heard groaning as her rear made its very special appearance. At least she wore panties this time!
Britney did manage to keep one embarrassing feature somewhat covered though -- holding her hands over her nasty hair extensions on her way into the restaurant/club.
Hayden Gives Her Dog a Bone
"Heroes" hottie Hayden Panettiere grabbed her furry friend and hit the runway in New York last night for the 8th annual Paws for Style benefit fashion show. Save a puppy, save the world.
Hayden joined a pack of stars who are raising money and awareness for animal rescue.
Whoopi -- The New Rosie?
Will "The View" be making Whoopi ... Rosie's replacement next summer? Star (the magazine, not Jones) seems to think so. "As far as everyone at ABC is concerned, she has the job," according to a "network insider." The mag says that Babwa and crew have been talking to Kathy Griffin, Roseanne Barr, Ricki Lake, and Gayle King, but that Whoopi "has won everyone over." What's more, she's "liberal and outspoken but not crazy like Rosie." And just to add insult to injury as far as Rosie goes (the two are friends), Whoopi's getting the year-to-year deal that Rosie wanted. A "View" rep says, "No offer has been made to any potential candidate."
'Sopranos' Creator to Fans -- Take That Ending and Shove It
"Sopranos" creator David Chase doesn't see what all the fuss is -- about the ending to the mob drama. He tells the Star-Ledger of New Jersey that he has "no interest in explaining, defending, reinterpreting, or adding to what is there," concerning the final scene, which had fans aghast with its ambiguity and abruptness, going to black for five full seconds after building up. "We did what we thought we had to do," says Chase, and he definitely didn't design the ending to work into a possible movie.
The cast, meanwhile, at a viewing party for the show, said that they didn't know which ending would end up being used, but didn't comment on it beyond that.
