    Paris Hilton’s Family Visits Her Before Court Hearing

    In a fitting metaphorical celebration of Paris’ swift in-and-out of jail this week, someone delivered In-N-Out burgers to La Casa Hilton last night. Nothing says “welcome home” like a big bag of fast food.

    As an veritable army of camera crews lined the street outside her home, a huge bouqet of flowers and some Double-Doubles were delivered — as Hilton’s family members, including her parents, sister Nicky, aunt Kyle Richards and lawyer Richard Hutton — all stopped by to see how the “emotionally distraught and traumatized” former jailbird was doing.

    Kathy paused to tell cameras she was “happy to have her home,” and aunt Kyle was pissed that the same public outrage wasn’t shown for the case of Michelle Rodriguez, who served just 2 hours of her 60-day sentence.

    Paris Hilton Haters Ignore Medical Claims

    Paris Hilton will be in court in 2:30 hours.

    Rarely has it been the simple life for Paris Hilton these days.

    The hotel heiress was headed for a courtroom showdown Friday that could put her back behind bars, as prosecutors sought to hold sheriff’s officials in contempt for releasing her early from jail.

    Hilton was ordered to report to court at 9 a.m. and will be brought in a sheriff’s vehicle from her Hollywood Hills home, said Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini.

    The frenzy began early Thursday when sheriff’s officials released Hilton because of an undisclosed medical condition and sent her home under house arrest. She had been in jail for three days.

    Hilton was fitted with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet and was expected to finish her 45-day sentence for a reckless driving probation violation at her four-bedroom, three-bath home.

    The decision by Sheriff Lee Baca to move Hilton chafed prosecutors and Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer, who spelled out during sentencing that Hilton was not allowed to serve house detention.

    Late Thursday, Sauer issued the order for Hilton to return to court after the city attorney filed a petition demanding that Hilton be returned to jail and to show cause why Baca shouldn’t be held in contempt of court.

    Baca does not have to be in court, and it was unclear who would represent the Sheriff’s Department.

    The move also was met with outrage from the sheriff’s deputies union, members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, civil rights leaders, defence attorneys and others.

    “What transpired here is outrageous,” county Supervisor Don Knabe told The Associated Press, adding he received more than 400 angry emails and hundreds more phone calls from around the country.

    Hilton’s return home “gives the impression of … celebrity justice being handed out,” he said.

    Baca dismissed the criticism, saying the decision was made based on medical advice.

    “It isn’t wise to keep a person in jail with her problem over an extended period of time and let the problem get worse,” Baca told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.

    “My message to those who don’t like celebrities is that punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice,” Baca said.

    The Los Angeles County jail system is so overcrowded that attorneys and jail officials have said it is not unusual for nonviolent offenders like Hilton to be released after serving as little as 10 per cent of their sentences.

    In the hours after Hilton’s release, it was a madcap scene outside her house in the hills above the Sunset Strip. As word spread that the 26-year-old poster child for bad celebrity behaviour was back home, radio helicopter pilots who normally report on traffic conditions were dispatched to hover over her house and describe it to morning commuters. Paparazzi photographers on the ground quickly assembled outside its gates.

    Shortly before noon, Hilton issued a statement through her attorney.

    “I want to thank the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and staff of the Century Regional Detention Center for treating me fairly and professionally,” she said. “I am going to serve the remaining 40 days of my sentence. I have learned a great deal from this ordeal and hope that others have learned from my mistakes.”

    Hilton’s path to jail began Sept. 7, when she failed a sobriety test after police saw her weaving down a street in her Mercedes-Benz on what she said was a late-night run to a hamburger stand.

    She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to 36 months’ probation, alcohol education and US$1,500 in fines.

    In the months that followed she was stopped twice by officers who discovered her driving on a suspended licence. The second stop landed her in Sauer’s courtroom, where he sentenced her to jail.

    ExtraTV: Paris Hilton Was Facing A Shortness Of Breath And Possible Heart Attack

    Paris Hilton spent only three days in the slammer before being sent back to her posh Hollywood Hills home under house arrest.

    Officials cited “medical reasons” for the pampered princess being sent home early, but “Extra” may have solved the medical mystery!

    Sources tell us that late last night, Paris went into a panic.

    She suddenly had shortness of breath and convinced herself that she was having a heart attack.

    I have no idea if this is a made-up or true report.

    Paparazzi Camp Outside Paris Hilton’s Home

    The paparazzi was back at Paris Hilton’s Hollywood Hills home today, as the hotel heiress took sanctuary there after spending three nights in jail.Sheriff’s officials say Hilton was sent home under house arrest early today due to an undisclosed medical condition.

    The 26-year-old’s parents stopped by for a brief visit. Cupcakes and other goodies were delivered.

    A throng of photographers and reporters from around the globe huddled hoping to catch a glimpse of the hotel heiress.

    Later, two police officers and Hilton’s private security guard stood watch in the home’s entrance.

    Hilton herself kept a low profile.

    Late in the day, the city attorney’s office asked a judge to decide whether Hilton should be returned to jail and the sheriff held in contempt of court for releasing her.

    A hearing is set for tomorrow morning, with Hilton ordered to appear.

    The Coming Hours Will Be A Rollercoaster Ride

    Brace Yourself

    Well, I have to say I’m a bit disappointed about what happened today. Let me assure that as a hardcore fan, I didn’t really expect this to happen (yet, not surprised), and I agree with many fans that this will only make her look bad, primarily because the haters don’t understand that she is already being treated unfairly and because she said would complete her jail term.

    Now the media has been avoiding the medical issues. I won’t even write about the media for now. All I have to say is that I am mad as hell at the mess they have done. I wish I could tell every news anchor and commentator to take their garbage comments and to go to hell for the damages they have done and for not addressing the important issues. It really angers me. But you know, I’m not really surprised about this release. For one thing, we already knew that Paris was seeing her psychiatrist for the past 8 months.

    I want to just back off for a minute and explain to you why I’m not surprised about this, but I’ll also explain something else.

    Remember the video I posted, I think, last night? It was an exclusive information from E! news. No major network bothered to seriously report it.

    It was said that Paris was totally devastated when she was heading to jail and how her family members had never seen her in such terrible condition. She was also crying during the first 24 hours in jail. However, her family then said that she was doing fine.

    Remember what Paris’ biggest fear was? It was getting attacked by her inmates, and she was very worried about this. But her family did say that she was doing fine while her psychiatrist went visiting her. Also remember the “harsh” report from TMZ?

    Well, if you think about it… Either the Hilton family or TMZ was lying.

    Was Paris’ situation as extreme as it was described in the TMZ’ report? Or was the Hilton family saying that everything was going well just to push aside the happy-happy haters?

    I do believe the Hilton family, and we did see Paris in terrible condition in that exclusive TMZ video. But was Paris still suffering after Day 1?

    It’s hard to tell, but let me tell you, I don’t think any jail official would release Paris if it wasn’t for a good reason. I mean, don’t these officials know the unbelievable backlash they would be hit by the evil media?

    We don’t know exactly what happened, but the explanation is that she couldn’t stay in jail because of medical reasons. And it does happen.

    The chaos isn’t over yet, however! Do you realize what is going to happen tomorrow? Paris is going to leave her house to attend a court hearing. That’s a repeat of what happened last time in May. Tomorrow, it’s going to be even more crazy.

    But the “judge,” the monster, won’t be able to blame anything on Paris, even though he would like to. The last few hours should be interesting, but the only problem is the suffering of Paris at the hands of the hatemongers in the media and on blogs. The hatred is incredible. The nation is “outrage” as the media reported. But you got to remember that this is driven by an irrational hatred, not by strong and intelligent arguments. And Haters > Fans = Unfair for Paris.

    All I will say is that even though the media coverage is out of control, it is also absolutely breathtaking. Who thought that our Paris would get this much media coverage? Can you imagine how big Paris will be after all of this is done?
