It was just a matter of time for Paris...

Is this Moscow's way of keeping Madonna from performing there?

A Bruce Lee theme park? What's next, the Jackie Chan Experience?

I don't know about Paris or Scarlett, but I know I went out and got drunk when I found out Heather was dating Spade.

Now that he's available again, it might be why the girls got loaded...

Jailynn? As in "In Jail"?

Paris Hilton should use this experience to teach others about DUI. I'm 27 years old, never been in trouble before. Last December I was pulled over because the license plate light on my car wasn't working. I had been drinking, but I thought I was under the legal limit. I blew a .08. I was arrested, taken to jail, strip searched, put into an orange jumpsuit (complete with dirty underwear, which I didn't wear), and had to spend the night in jail. I cooperated and wasn't causing any trouble. But, that is what they did to me! Paris should have had the same treatment! My charge ended up getting reduced to careless driving, but I still had to pay many of the fines and deal with the penalties, which included 12 weeks of DUI classes (at $40 each, which is nothing for Hilton, but hard for someone like me). In those classes, I learned that .08 is driving impaired, and that thousands of people are killed each year by drivers in the .08-.10 blood alcohol range. Yes, buzzed driving IS drunk driving! Paris blows off a .08 as "nothing." I hope she learns that driving at .08 is a very serious thing. Many other people are arrested all over the country each day with .08 blood alcohol levels. These arrests put a TON of strain and stress on people's lives. And, most people at that blood alcohol level didn't realize they were breaking the law when they got behind the wheel. Most people think that they are under the legal limit. But, .08 is impaired and it is illegal to drive at that level. Paris should use this opportunity to teach people that.
