Paris Hilton Has Called Her Jail Sentence A New Beginning

The hotel heiress - who spent 23 days in a California county jail for driving with a suspended licence - wants to turn her back on her wild partying ways.

Paris told US chat show host Larry King: "They say when you reach a crossroad or a turning point in life, it really doesn't matter how we got there, but it's what we do next after we got there.

"Usually you arrive there by adversity, and it is then, and only then, that we find out who we truly are and what we're truly made of. It's a process, a gift and a journey, and if we can travel it alone, although the road may be rough at the beginning, you find an ability to walk it. A way to start fresh again.

"It's neither a downfall nor a failure, but a new beginning. And I felt like this is a new beginning for me, to see jail - and I just used it as a journey to figure out myself and who I am and what I want to do. There's just so much more to me than what people think."

The 26-year-old blonde was confined to her cell for 23 hours a day, only leaving to shower and call her family, but she spoke to other inmates through air vents.

The socialite described prison food as awful and revealed the other inmates called it "mystery slop".

Katherine Heigl To Wed At Christmas

Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl is to wed her rocker fiance Josh Kelley two days before Christmas, according to U.S. reports.

Friends say the actress chose the date in the middle of a hiatus from the medical drama, so she could get used to being Mrs Kelley and take time to plan and prepare for her big day.

An insider tells America's Life&Style magazine, "She'll be in the middle of a holiday break for her show, and she'll still have enough time after for a short honeymoon."

"Everyone is already so full of cheer just before Christmas, so, to throw in a wedding at that time - she just loved the idea.

"Her idea is to get married under this snow covered tent at her property with Josh in rural Utah. She wants glamour, so the dress is upscale. But she also wanted everything to feel down-to-earth, natural and beautiful."

The couple met on the set of Kelley's Only You music video, in which she played his sweetheart, in 2005.

One day, I'm going to surprise myself and fall completely head over heels for someone and be swept off my feet!"

The Oscar-winning actress, who is married to Hollywood actor Michael Douglas, says her perceived self-confidence is just a front.

She said in an interview with InStyle magazine: "I'm more insecure than I ever let anyone know. Sometimes you protect yourself with this kind of armour that people see more than they see you."

Meanwhile, Catherine has insisted her children are more important to her than her acting career.

The actress - who has two children, Dylan, six, and four-year-old Carys with Michael - says her family will always take priority over her movies.

Catherine, 37, said: "Years ago if someone said they were doing a movie in Romania, I was, like, 'What time is my flight?' I couldn't see beyond the script. Now I'm like, 'Script? I'll figure that out after dealing with the people I love more than anything in the world.' "

But her neighbors, who have filed more than 50 complaints about noise and press obstruction to their homes since Hilton was incarcerated, are worried the media will disturb their peace even more on her return.

A spokeswoman for the LAPD, Department of Transportation and Department of Street Services, tells the New York Daily News, "There are no plans to force her out of her home but action is being taken to minimize the annoyance of other occupants."

She adds "Most (complaints) concerned noise from the five helicopters that handled the live coverage of her one day at home. Other issues involved overcrowding and space issues, because the street is very narrow, doesn't have sidewalks and has no parking."

Angelina Jolie Praises Brad Pitt's Parents

Angelina Jolie has praised partner Brad Pitt's parents for accepting her and her adopted children so soon after the actor's divorce from Jennifer Aniston.

Jolie and Pitt's relationship was made public in April 2005 when they were photographed vacationing with the actress' adopted son Maddox on a beach in Kenya - just three months after the actor split from Aniston after four and half years of marriage.

The Mr & Mrs Smith co-stars officially confirmed their relationship in January 2006 when they announced that "they" were expecting their first biological child together. Daughter Shiloh Nouvel was born four months later in Namibia.

Last year (06), Pitt filed papers to be recognised as the legal adoptive father of Jolie's adopted children Maddox and Zahara, and the couple recently added Vietnamese tot Pax to their brood.

Jolie admits she was worried when she first met Pitt's parents Jane and William - whose fondness for Aniston is well-documented - but they were very nice to her.

She says, "When I first met them I came in with two adopted children from other countries and I didn't know how they were going to be. But they are equally loving with them."

Actress Vivica A. Fox has no sympathy for jailed socialite Paris Hilton - insisting celebrities should never be above the law.

And Fox admits that celebrities should take their punishment with grace because everyone is watching them.

She says "We are not above the law. She's going to get more coverage when her butt gets out of jail. It's going to be a special alert and we all are going to watch, right?"

Hilton is currently serving time at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, California for violating her probation on a 2006 drink driving arrest, but is expected to be released for good behavior on 25 June (07).

Meanwhile according to TV star Judge Judy socialite Paris Hilton was rightly jailed for violating probation, according to TV star Judge Judy Sheindlin.

Los Angeles authorities have been accused of treating Hilton harshly - but the star of Judge Judy, herself a former family court judge, insists her sentence was fair.

She told talk show host Larry King last night (18Jun07), "When a judge says to somebody, 'I'm going to give you an opportunity to remain free - you committed a crime.' In this case, she was driving while intoxicated and endangered a lot of people. 'But I'm going to give you a chance to stay out of jail, even though I could put you in jail for what you did, but you have to abide by these rules.' And she breaks the rules.

"Paris Hilton is a criminal - a little criminal, but a criminal."

Heather Mills Accused Of Lying About Assault

Heather Mills was accused of lying about her alleged assault in a Brighton, England, court on Thursday (21Jun07).

Sir Paul McCartney's estranged wife claimed photographer Jay Kaycappa, 31, grabbed her shoulder as he attempted to take her photo in a Brighton subway in July 2006.

The entire sequence of photographs - with the date and time stamps - were shown to Brighton Magistrates' Court, suggesting Kaycappa would only have had two seconds to run towards Mills to grab her, before running back to take another image.

Lewis said, "'If these times are accurate, then you must have lied to us about what's happened."

Mills replied, "'No, why would I lie? They're not accurate and I've not lied."
