Paris Hilton On Jail TV

THE incarceration of Paris Hilton will not be televised:

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Sheriff Lee Baca said Friday that Paris Hilton will not be allowed to give television interviews while serving her jail sentence and that aggressive steps were being taken to prevent cameras from being smuggled into the facility.

Hilton was ordered to begin her sentence by Tuesday at a county jail in Lynwood, about five miles south of Los Angeles.

Baca told the Los Angeles Times that deputies and jail employees have been told to treat the 26-year-old heiress like any other inmate.

“Paying a debt to society should not be an element of her celebrity,” Baca said. “Her occupation is publicity, but no one should profit in jail.”

News indeed. What odds on Paris not profiting from jail?

“The reality is why don’t they just let her walk down the concrete carpet,” said Frank Griffin, co-owner of the Bauer-Griffin paparazzi agency, told the paper. “This is going to be turned into an event like the Oscars.”
