Paris Hilton

We're suckers for a narrative.

so she....passively decides on what shes doing each day?

I want to make it into a t-shirt!

This makes me sad for her. I wanna hug her. Also, Sarah Silverman making fun of her to her face at MTV awards the day before she went to prison made me sad for her. I thought before I watched it that I'd cheer and laugh and "Yeah! Revenge of the nerds against the cool beautiful kids!" but I didn't feel that way. I felt sad and I still do.

Someone needs to send her some self empowerment books or something. She needs some new friends and maybe she should enroll in a class in community college or SUMTHIN.

For some reason, I've been on her side since the start. I even watch her movies: Bottoms Up is great. I'm surprised more people aren't sympathetic to her. She's the alpha underdog. She's completely brokedown, just like the rest of us. I guess I don't necessarily feel sad for her though... she's an expert at making the best of things, and this will be no exception. Just wait, Paris will come out of jail with more momentum than ever.

I've never hated her or help her up as the pinnacle of raunchy badgirlness. I get annoyed that her name is synonymous for everything wrong in the world. I do get annoyed that everyone is so obsessed with a dimwitted ever-partying rich girl but I gotta respect her resilience (and the ingenuity of the Paris Hilton media machine).

Yeah, unfortunately there's plenty more wrong with the world than people having fun and making everyone else jealous. And yes, her resilience and cleverness with the media crack me up. The real problem people of this world are too busy being evil to go to clubs every night.

It's no Hilton, but it's home.

Has the person writing that ever stayed in a Hilton hotel? Talk about barfy.

I have a hunch that you would like my friend's post.

Have you read the Black Swan yet? Is it any good. It sounds interesting.

It's on my pile but I haven't read it yet. I read his first book Fooled By Randomness which changed my life. So I have high hopes for this one...

People who feel bad for Paris are just getting played. She's about as "stupid" as George Bush...stupid like a fox! It's all a calculated act, for personal gain at the expense of the rest of us.

I mostly agree. She's not dumb. But... what's the expense to the rest of us? I can understand in the case of GWB what the expense is, but from PH I get nothing but entertainment.

You're right, it's not so much of an "expense" with PH. Just wasted pity/aggravation/etc.
