Paris Hilton is finally due to be released from jail tomorrow after serving 23 days in the hoosegow.
There’s a million dollar bounty for Paris Hilton and last week I received email asking me to be a part of the hunt for Ms. Hilton before she is released from the Big House.
Here’s the letter offering the million dollars:
ParisExposed.com, the site that paid $10,000,000 for the
contents of Paris Hilton’s Storage locker and launched in January 2007,
is now offering up to $1,000,000 dollars for pictures of Paris Hilton
in her prison attire.
In mid 2006, Paris Hilton, heiress to the Hilton Hotel dynasty, leased
a 6,000 cubic foot storage bin in Los Angeles, CA.
She stuffed the unit
chock full of: Medical records; more than 50 hours of personal and
steamy home videos; 75,000 photographs (including those of celebrities,
her family, and baby photos); recorded phone conversations; copious
diaries kept since her pre-teen years; love letters (including those to
and from Back Street Boy Nick Carter); legal pleadings; contracts;
address books and phone numbers (containing the personal home and cell
phone number of celebrities such as Donald Trump, Chelsea Clinton,
Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Prince, and MANY others); clothing
and thousands of other items of the most personal nature. All this was
acquired because Hilton failed to pay her storage bill.
Ms. Hilton is suing ParisExposed.com, but one has to wonder why she bothers.
Does she want a piece of the action?
Because, according to the video preview on that site, it is obvious several men have had a piece of Ms. Hilton.
Last week, there were rumors of a million dollar bounty being paid to Ms. Hilton from NBC News for the rights to a first interview after leaving jail. ABC News was also in the running for a paid interview.
NBC News now claims they don’t “pay for interviews” but, it seems, NBC News does “pay up to a million dollars for access to family pictures and videos.”
week, both ABC and NBC are backing off the rumors that any money at all
was offered for anything to do with Ms. Hilton’s release from
Today, we are left with the news that Ms. Hilton will appear, for free, on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “Larry King Live” where she will reveal the intimate details of her prison time.
Ms. Hilton claimed, in a collect-call jailhouse interview with Barbara Walters, she wants to change her image:
I used to act dumb. It was an act. That act is no
longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for
the young girls who look up to me. Now, I would like to make a
difference… God has given me this new chance.
The first thing Ms. Hilton should probably do — after finding God and
dropping her pretend stupidity — is to pull up her pants, get off her
hands and knees, and put on some clothes.
Will we ever be free of a Paris Hilton sexual semiotic?
Do we really want young girls looking up to her and imitating her look and behavior?
Does the world want a smarter Ms. Hilton — or do we just want her to stand there, look pretty and smile?
