It's always interesting to me how TMZ is in the business of trying to expose someone to discredit them completely. Whatever happened to "paying your debt to society"?

So if she hadn't been on American Idol, would we have known about this?

I would hate to be in the business of destroying others for fun. Is it just me or does this seem awfully high school-ish?

Go Away Paris......You are a SKANK    

Does anyone really carea about this? What does this have to do with Ameican Idol? Nothing.
Everyone makes mistakes a few times during their life and will continue to make a few in the future.
I really dont like this contestants musical sound but she paid her dues and just let the DUI thing go.
It makes no difference to me.

its not cool these days to be a drunk driver, past or present....not my rules, its Americas rules and we all should know that, just like America is not cool to smoking anymore and soon will be after fat people to not eat so much.

Most Idol contestants seem so Trailer Parkish. Very few have class or voices. or breeding.

He's Boring now    

That Indiana Wants Me guys comments are right on. America really doesnt want dui's and smoking and there are laws I heard coming to NY about trans fat in food so heavy people will have to watch it. American Idol should get with it and not let people who are drunk drivers on their show. They will get found out anyway, look at all the past other Idol people who got found out about their past once they won something.
