Tori Spelling’s Mother Sends A Letter To TMZ Regarding Paris Hilton
As someone who has known you for most of your life, I pay special attention to your press coverage. (Apparently, I’m not alone, based on the responses every word about you creates on TMZ.com and elsewhere.)
I hope she doesn’t take those silly comments too seriously.
Paris, I’m very worried about you. The last week has not only been an obvious roller-coaster for you emotionally, but your strategy went from blaming employees and stating silly excuses like, “I don’t read,” to your new lawyer’s tactic to have you sound mature and take some responsibility. In between, the paparazzi continue to follow you shopping and taking self-defense classes (to protect yourself in jail?), and some over-zealous friends staged embarrassing protests (three people?), and wasted taxpayer funds with a petition to pardon you.
1. Paris then said she will face the consequences and be more responsible.
2. She has never said she’s taking self-defense classes. That’s something the media invented. We don’t know for sure.
3. How dare she writes “(three people?)” Does this woman think that 90% of the population is happy to see Paris go to jail because she broke the law? Those three protesters argued against injustice.
4. No taxpayer funds were wasted with that petition. All the bandwidth and maintenance are paid by the webhost. Petitions are free, by the way.
People who are rich and famous are not treated like “regular” people, even though you claim to now be just like everyone else. In most situations, your privileged life works to your benefit. You have opportunities, access and resources like few others; and frankly, you can get away with more bad behavior and excuses than most people could even imagine. However, as the real possibility of jail approaches — whether it’s 21 days or 45 or whatever the latest report is — it’s time to get real. It’s time to find “a Paris” somewhere between “heiress” and a character on “The Simple Life.” I know she’s there, and I know she can be a good citizen and maturely face consequences other people would have to face under the same circumstances.
Paris has already issued a statement. Did you read it, Spelling? Do you recognize that she is being used?
I am sorry you have been sentenced to jail. I can’t think of too much that would be worse. But since you let this happen, use the next couple of weeks preparing not only by publicly learning to fight (not a good message to fellow inmates), but by looking around, realizing that you are not as truly entitled as your money implies. You are a young woman who can add more to her community than establishing new definitions for infamy.
Well, that’s the opinion of Tori Spelling’s mother. It’s not really a hateful letter and that’s good, but she’s still stereotyping her and actually believes that the voice of the crazy majority is the truth.
Then again, we can’t always blame everything on haters and Spelling. Paris is also to be blamed for what is happening and for the big mistakes she made over the past year.
Spelling’s letter is also good because it will help her and others take Paris more seriously once she’s out of jail. They will expect that, and it will be a perfect opportunity for Paris to remodel her image.
