I know we’re not talking about it… but did anyone catch the cold shoulder LL got from our gal?
Larry King asked about Lohan and Paris said curtly “I know her.” Then, Larry King asked if Paris would visit a friend in rehab and Paris responded “I don’t have any friends in rehab.” Yikes. You hate to see friendships sour. Luckily Paris still has much love for B-Spears.
Lastly, the funniest comment of the night was Larry King’s outro: “Thanks for joining us Paris. Tomorrow night, former Secretary of State Colin Powell is on the show.” Frankly, I don’t know how Larry made that transition without killing one of his producers.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski put a prettier face on the point Rosie O’Donnell is trying to make: there are currently news stories that actually impact the lives of people whose last name isn’t Hilton. It’s just that no one is paying attention to them.
Ms. Brzezinski basically loses it in her morning newscast, refusing to lead with a story about Paris Hilton. At one point, she has to be stopped from lighting her paper copy of the story on fire. I love it. Now that’s a newsworthy story: MSNBC studio burns to the ground; Paris Hilton to blame.
Big, huge, enormous props to Celebslam for tracking down this photo of Sheriff Baca.
The Sheriff was grilled once again about why he decided Paris needed to leave jail after like 10 minutes, and he was like, “Our doctors said we had no solution to Hilton’s medical problems. None. As a sheriff in this county, I’m not going to let any inmate die in this jail.”
Jesus Christ, what did she have? The plague?
Even Paris was all like, “The doctors were observing me while I was there. They explained to Sheriff [Lee] Baca that they thought I was having severe anxiety, panic attacks, claustrophobia.”
Baca went on to say that “everyone who goes in to serve county jail time is early released. If Ms. Hilton got preferential treatment, it’s that she spent more time in the county jail than the average inmate.”
I think that if Paris had been released with that sort of statement, there would probably have been less backlash. If the Sheriff had just been, like, “Look, this is pretty routine. Paris is a low-risk, non-violent offender, and it doesn’t make any economic sense to keep her here when we have high-risk, violent felons who need cages, so we’re releasing her early and putting her on house arrest, like we do in all of these cases,” people may have been less outraged. I know I would have. It probably would have helped me be a little less outraged if the Hiltons hadn’t contributed to Baca’s most recent campaign, but that’s a different story.
“Already I can’t open my jaws more than just a little bit. There’s no pain only if I open my mouth about enough for one finger. More than that is painful and I can’t open it. To tell the truth, I’m desperate about healing completely before the July 4 contest”
Fans need not worry that their won’t be a wowing wiener champ. Already Joey Chestnut, 23, of San Jose, Calif., beat Kobayashi’s world record in a Coney qualifying event, the Southwest Regional Hot Dog Eating Championship at the Arizona Mills Mall, by eating 59.5 hot dogs in 12 minutes. The record that Kobayashi set last year was 53.75 wieners in 12 minutes.
I’m sure the Mustard Belt will go to a dynamic Wiener winner. I feel sorry for Kobayashi…kind of funny however that he has paralized his jaw by eating too many wieners. I know some girls that I went to college with that had the same problem.
