Paris - My Family's Getting Ripped Off

6/19/2007 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris HiltonParis Hilton is spending a lot of time in jail with a cinderblock outlook on life, says her mom, and when she tried to improve the view a little bit, the guards weren't letting her have it.

Kathy and Rick Hilton called in last night to FOX News' "On the Record" with Greta Van Susteren, and Mama Hilton said that when she asks Paris what she's doing during the days, Paris tells her, "I look at the ceiling. I look at the walls." And when she tried to put up some family pictures, "the guard came in and ripped them off."

Meanwhile, Rick Hilton told Van Susteren that Paris' now-famous Father's Day card was "kind of cute," making light of her plight. "It showed me holding her hand against the glass with her on the other," said Rick. He also addressed his own dad Barron's donation to Sheriff Lee Baca, saying it happened "a year and a half ago" and denied there was any favoritism shown.

Lindsay Bags Big 21st Bash


A soon-to-be fresh-out-of-rehab Lindsay Lohan won't be blowing out her 21st birthday cake candles in Las Vegas after all. She canceled the July 2 soiree at PURE Nightclub, reports Us, and as her rep puts it, "We were confused why PURE was even still promoting it. But Lindsay will not be having the birthday party at PURE and is focusing on her recovery 100 percent." As for the club, which had planned to open specially on Monday for the Lohan party, they tell People that they, "wish her the best as she is taking care of personal matters at this time."

Isaiah – Getting Star Treatment from ABC?


Just-fired Isaiah Washington is getting some support from the most unlikely place -- a petition circulated by a prominent gay activist who wants the ex-TV-doc brought back to "Grey's Anatomy," says Page Six, and says that ABC's firing smells of racism.

Jasmyne Cannick has collected over 1,000 signatures on her petition against ABC, alleging that Isaiah's firing "adds to a disturbing new trend" where minority actors have been canned at the network, including Star Jones, Alfre Woodard and Harold Perrineau.

Party Favors -- Something's in the Water Edition: Tiger and Wife Have Their Cub ... Keri Russell Has One, Too ... Brady and Gisele Steak Out Vegas ... Jeri Ryan Ties the Knot, Again


Think Tiger Woods really gives a cat's ass about finishing second in the US Open? Probably not, now that he and wife Elin Nordegrin have welcomed their first child, a girl, Sam Alexis Woods. ... Keri Russell and hubby Shane Deary welcomed a baby boy, River Russell Deary, on June 9, reports People. ... Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen had a meaty, mushy repast at N9NE steakhouse at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, with Gisele ordering a pan-seared filet ... and a side, says a spy, of hugs and kisses. ... Jeri Ryan -- remember her, "Star Trek" fans? -- got married to L.A. chef Christophe Eme last night over the weekend in France. Ryan was previously married to former Senate candidate Jack Ryan.

I do not feel any remorse for Paris Hilton. She broke the law and now she must face the consequences. If it were any of us..there would be no breaks..no special treatment..no reduced sentence and definitely no beautiful view. Paris should feel so lucky that she is who she is. That girl needed a strong dose of reality. Life is more than money,fame,drunken nights and ridiculous porn videos. Hopefully, she will learn a thing or two about a thing or two. And realize she isn't invinsible, no matter how much money she has in the bank.

I stop reading tmz for a few days, come back and find out that her family made donations to Sheriff Baca? Well, at least there's a motivation for doing a crappy job of following court orders.

Finally exposed - shes a wierdo    

I'm glad to see lindsay lohan has finally gotten a clue about her 21st birthday bash (despite her suck-ass enabler mom & enabling lawyer's comments about how "just because you're sober doesn't mean you can't party"; someone should disbar his enabling ass). Maybe rehab is finally sinking in, and she realizes that being sober is not something you just get in 30 days time; it's a lifelong commitment. You can't immediately jump back into the same environment that caused your problems in the 1st place, or you're asking for trouble. It's something she's apparently learned; too bad her hired mouthpiece enabler ambulance chasing lawyer doesn't get it...

These are interesting times. Paris & Lindsay are beginning to show signs of maturity, and growing up. Thank god we have twitney to provide us with assinine, stupid, empty headed, moronic, insipid, awkward, embarrassing, pathetic things to see & talk about...

U Know Who    

Um Tiger Woods is on the Roids, look at his guns and chest. There have been numerous commentators speculating, I say what's to speculate. He weighed a buck 05 , just a minute ago. Now he looks like Barry Bonds minus the HUMUNGOUS head.

Interesting that Kathy Hilton called Paris' jailtime "time out". Since the parents never disciplined their little narcistic, selfish brat it was left to the state of California to tell her what was not appropriate behavior, and to try to dissuade her from causing danger to the public with her driving by giving her "time out". Will she learn from this? Not if Mommy and Daddy whine that she was persecuted unfairly. If that's the attitude you want to take folks, then don't be surprised if 1) a fatal accident occurs; or 2) she goes back to the pokie. Listen up Paris and Parents. You are both responsible.

Jasmyne Cannick is a "prominent gay activist" ?!?! hahaha... more like a lesbian with a blog site for whom EVERYthing is about being black and, ergo, put upon by 'da man.' in her little world, creating a hostile work environment by physically and verbally attacking your co-workers is just a 'black thang.' puh-leeze.

They're being canned because of bad behavior and their own bigotry, not because of race, color or creed. Act like an idiot, and you get fired as it should be.

This whole Hilton family thinks of nothing but PARTYING!! Last night on Greta, they didn't even finish their interview--that dad kept saying we gotta go meet my father for dinner. I have NEVER heard anybody say they had to leave on a live newscast. They shouldn't have agreed to do it. Doesn't anyone in that family have any sense. Wait a little while and then have a get-out-of-jail party. Unless they're doing it to SNUB the justice system. THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE.

Geeez!

C'mon, Tiger! Give that baby a name that won't embarrass her as she grows up!

Sam? Like in Sam Hill?

How about, maybe....George? Charlie?

Then there is Julia's Hazel the Witch (or WitchHazel for short)
or what's his name, the Witch's twin, Bee-bam-boozel?

And to round it off, Henry (the Eighth)

IF PARIS GETS 45 days Shouldn't DELAGADILLO's wife get it TOO?


Delgadillo's wife, Michelle, and her escapades behind the wheel. She got into an accident three years ago, couldn't prove she had insurance, had her license suspended for three years, then got cited a year later for a moving violation.

Why no proof of insurance on the first offense? Was it because she didn't have insurance? Why no ticket for not having a license on the second offense?

And while we're on the subject, if her license was suspended, wouldn't it have been impossible to get insurance? That's how I understand the law, but I'm not a city attorney.

How inconvenient that this news broke just as Delgadillo was ripping Sheriff Lee Baca for springing Hilton so soon after she was locked up for driving on a suspended license, of all things.

And then came another little bombshell from McGreevy: A city-owned GMC Yukon assigned to Delgadillo was banged up in a 2004 accident. But for some reason his aides can't find a report that would have identified the driver, and sources told McGreevy that Delgadillo occasionally handed his wife the keys to the city SUV.

On Monday, Delgadillo refused to answer McGreevy's questions regarding another source who said the accident, which caused $2,120 worth of damage that the city paid for, occurred at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. And it happened on a day when Delgadillo's wife allegedly was there for a medical appointment.

On Tuesday, Delgadillo dug himself in deeper when he took a pass on an interview request. Too bad. Among other things, I wanted to know why the city attorney needs to drive a gigantic smog factory, same model as the mayor, in a city with notoriously dirty air. And, if someone unauthorized was driving the Yukon assigned to Rocky, shouldn't he pay for repairs with his own money?

Rocky, are you reading this? You're the city attorney. Please tell us that your wife didn't smash up your city vehicle. And if she did, please tell us she at least had insurance and a valid driver's license. Otherwise, maybe Paris should make room for a new bunkmate.

Look, we all know Rocky is not short for rocket scientist, but surely you can do better, and if not, try lying.

Blame it on Baca. Blame it on the DMV. Say you were framed.

Say that the matter is being thoroughly investigated internally and that your wife is under house arrest until further notice, ankle bracelet and all.

Say that she was at Cedars-Sinai to treat chronic amnesia.

Better yet, say you're the one with amnesia. You drove the SUV that day, banged it up and bumped your head. How else to explain why you let your wife drive a city vehicle?

As a last resort, consider telling the truth, which sometimes works even for attorneys. Tell us who was driving the car. Tell us whether that person, whoever she might be, had a license and insurance.

And tell us that after thinking it over, you'd like to cover the cost of that accident out of your own pocket.
