PerezWatch: Is He Hatin’ on Paris, Too?

Perez Hilton Hates Paris Hilton?

Perez ran this unflattering image tonight of Sheriff Lee Baca, Paris Hilton’s would-be savior.

Additionally, he ran the quote from Rocky Delgadillo, stating that “justice was served” with the headline: “Justice Was Served.” I’d have expected him to run it as “Justice Was Served?”, but it was suspiciously question-markless.

What happened to Paris’s biggest supporter? Is he pissed that Paris won’t give him any exclusives on this, and he has to get all his updates via TMZ like the rest of us plebes? Is he just sick of being called out on the fact that he always gives Paris a break?

I Am So Sick of Paris Hilton That I’m Writing About James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini Interview Sopranos Finale

And I am particularly excited for when I discover I’ve managed to garner the search engine traffic from those people searching for “paris hilton james gandolfini.” Seriously. I don’t think you can truly appreciate the absurdity of what people will type into search engines until you run a website.

Anyway, tiny little details are beginning to leak about the finale (and don’t click if you don’t want to read them), but it’s still anyone’s guess what will go down Sunday night. But James Gandolfini, the notoriously press-shy star of the show, seems to have made his peace with it. He granted a rare (and perhaps contractually obligated) interview to the AP, where he states that “the character has been with me for so long. It’s a relief to let him go.”

Gandolfini hasn’t really mastered the art of the soundbite, and the author has to paraphrase most of the good parts of the interview, but he does speak a little about his own feelings towards Tony Soprano when asked if he likes his character: “I used to,” he says. “But it’s difficult toward the end. I think the thing with Christopher might have turned the corner.”

When asked what the future holds, Gandolfini says that “I don’t even think I’ve proven myself, yet. The Tony character was from New Jersey, I’m from New Jersey — there’s not a lot of stretching going on, here. In some ways, there is. In a LOT of ways. But I have yet to begin the fight, I think.”

How Cute is Ashley Tisdale?

Ashley Tisdale Recording Studio Picture

The 21-year-old star of Disney’s High School Musical never shows up at Hyde. Or Teddy’s. Or Area. She released her debut album, Headstrong, in February of this year, which peaked at #5 on the Billboard charts, and was #1 on the kids charts for quite awhile (if you’re over the age of 12, you might know it from the single “He Said She Said”). On Friday, while Paris Hilton and her mom were sobbing hysterically over the pain, fear and isolation Paris is facing for following up a DUI with two probation violations, Ashley Tisdale was in the studio recording voice-overs for the Starlight Foundation, which helps seriously ill children and their families cope with the pain, fear and isolation they face because they’re seriously ill (Jamie Lee Curtis is the national spokesperson).

So for everyone who gives us gossip bloggers shit for casting the spotlight on the very least responsible of celebrities, here are some adorable pictures of Ashley in the studio on Friday. But keep in mind that you’re all bored already, and you’re only here to see if Paris Hilton decided to attempt suicide overnight.

The Sheriff Thinks Paris Should Be Out

News conference on MSNBC right now… a few of the high notes:

According to The Sheriff:

Paris should be out of custody, and any other person charged with her crimes would be out on house arrest already.

The judge asking for medical records (the judge wanted to understand why she’d been released on medical reasons) was illegal because Paris never gave written permission for the release of her medical records. She only gave verbal permission which led to some confusion.

The Sheriff has been in touch with psychologists, and that’s the “medical” advice he took into consideration when he released her to house arrest. No one was aware of Paris’ psychiatric problems when she was initially incarcerated.

If the Judge wants to make an example of her The Sheriff will follow that order.

The Sheriff believes the incarceration of Paris is completely out of bounds, due to jail overcrowding, and her psychological issues make her jail time a complete mismatch for her crime.

A couple of times Sheriff Lee said “The only special treatment she’s received is that she’s been kept in jail far longer than anyone else would.”

Basically it seems as though Sheriff Lee wants nothing to do with this. His opinion is that she should be out on house arrest due to both her mental state and overcrowding. He made both points over and over throughout the press conference.

One of the commentators wondered why the lawyers didn’t originally bring up the “medical” issues before she was put in jail in the first place.

And now Rev. Al Sharpton is on MSNBC championing Paris headed back to jail.

This story can’t get stranger.
