Paris Hilton says she's had enough of the media mocking her every move -- and that she's "much more grateful" for, well, everything after spending a couple weeks in jail.
Paris tells Ryan Seacrest from behind bars that she appreciates the little things, "even just to have a pillow at night or food," and that her "gratitude has gone up so much." But she can't quite believe that they won't let her "give my dad a big hug" and that they have to embrace through glass because, she says, "I'm not a criminal."
Meanwhile, Paris may be making more coin from her time in the clink than just the $1 million that she'll reportedly get from NBC for her first post-jail interview. The New York Post reports that Paris' first post-pokey photos will run in People magazine, and that the snaps will be going to Getty Images for $300,000. Paris' rep had no comment on that.
Isaiah – T.R.'s a Liar, So Fire Him!
Isaiah Washington, meet sore loserdom. The slur-happy actor is swinging back -- again -- at ABC and the "Grey's Anatomy" producer, who he thinks should've axed his castmate T.R. Knight for creating the whole Isaiahgate mess just to get a raise from the network.
"They fired the wrong guy," Washington says to the Houston Chronicle. "I have to clear my name. I'm telling everything." Everything -- like the fact that T.R. lied to Ellen DeGeneres when he said that Washington called him "fa***t" to his face. "That's a lie. I used the word during a disagreement with Patrick. I apologized for that."
JT and Jess Thank God for Friday's
Given that he brings sexy back and she's got a sexy back, it's no wonder that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel love their baby back baby back ... oh wait, that's Chili's. No matter: JT and JB went all the way to Norway and had T.G.I. Friday's for lunch, even though they probably wouldn't be caught dead at one in the States. Cameras spotted the two budding lovebirds traipsing across northern Europe, with Biel spending some quality time with Justin's mom on a shopping trip in Stockholm. Then, the pair jetted over to Oslo, Norway, where they decided to eschew the cured fish and fenalar and pig out on some Wicked Wings and other Yank fare at T.G.I.'s, whereupon they realized they were fancy celebs -- and got on a yacht for a tour.
