Paris Hilton has got to be pissed.
Whereas Lindsay Lohan should have been looking at years in jail following her summer string of DUIs, the LA district attorney charged her with a seven misdemeanors, and no felonies.
She’s been charged with two counts of driving under the influence, driving with a blood-alcohol level above .08 percent and being under the influence of cocaine and one count of reckless driving.
Says a law enforcement source: “Prosecutors in this county see a lot of kids in crisis. There are lots of kids struggling with addiction. The first sign of trouble usually involves a car. We’re not going to throw every one of them in prison. It doesn’t make sense.”
It seemed to make perfect sense with Paris Hilton!
Why not Lindsay Lohan?
Is it because Paris didn’t immediately check into rehab?
You should have gone to rehab, Paris!!! It would have been nicer than your jail stay!
The on-going feud between Paris Hilton and Zeta Graff, the ex-girlfriend of Paris Latsis (who is Paris Hilton’s former fiance … are you following all this?) will have to continue outside of a courtroom. Paris decided to settle Graff’s lawsuit against her just as the trial was getting started.
Just a day before jury selection was scheduled to begin in diamond diva Zeta Graff’s much-anticipated defamation suit against the hotel heiress, Paris forked up enough cash to settle the case. Sources pegged the damage at north of $2 million. In the suit, Graff alleged that Hilton planted a story on Page Six two years ago which falsely claimed a jealous Graff – the ex-girlfriend of Paris Latsis – had ripped a necklace off Hilton’s neck and been thrown out of London nightclub Kabaret, while Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana” played mockingly in the background. Graff’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said, “Both parties are glad the matter could be resolved without the time and expense of a trial.”
In what is perhaps the funniest part of this whole story, the Page Six article continues with the following: “We at Page Six are just glad the matter was resolved without our editor being forced to recite the lyrics of Manilow’s hit song in court, as he did in a deposition.”
Now there’s a video I hope ends up on YouTube.
It’s about time we have some hot tennis chick on this blog.

“When Jackie Chan and I first wanted to work together 15 years ago, our passion was at its peak. … Our desire to succeed was very strong. Now we joke that when we watch [our upcoming film] `The Forbidden Kingdom’ our combined age is 100 … How intense are the battle scenes? My mentality is to not have high expectations.”

After 14 months of pregnancy, actress Bridget Moynahan at last gave birth to Tom Brady’s bastard child.
The baby boy was born in LA on Wednesday.
“Both mother and baby are doing well,” said Moynahan’s publicist.
Tom Brady, who is currently dating Gisele Bunchen, may or may not have been with her. His whereabouts are hard to pin down right now — he didn’t appear at The Patriots’ practice on Wednesday. He said earlier this week that he wanted to take a few days off when the child was born, calling it “a very joyous, happy situation.” Although it’s perfectly likely that, upon hearing the news of the birth, Gisele had him kidnapped and taken out of the country for a little while so he didn’t accidentally bond with another woman’s child.
