A Betting Woman...

So...Paris Hilton got the heave-ho and must now pay for her arrogance by going home...
Today must be an unimportant day, considering the minutes and hours being lavished on the early release of Paris Hilton.
Apparently, Paris didnít like jail and didnít feel well, so they sent her to her modest little home to serve the rest of her time.
As Iíve said, I donít dislike Paris because of her money or her family name, but rather for her arrogance and her insistence on turning the tawdry into gold. She talks often of being or wanting to be a role model, but there are few people Iíd rather my girls looked up to than her.
If I were a betting woman, Iíd be a little suspicious about this turn of events for Paris. Iíd bet that if, as the spokesperson justifying the release insisted, sheís confined to her home for forty days, the comings and goings there will be rather interesting. Videos of the rooms in that house after dark might prove entertaining, and would probably show that the piety and penitence exhibited hours before going to jail have faded away rather quickly.
If I were a betting woman, Iíd suspect that sheíd be driving againódrunk and or under the influence of other substancesóbefore the year was out. Iíd wonder if Las Vegas runs a book on what her next offense will beóand who will suffer the consequences. Obviously, Paris wonít.
MaybeóhopefullyóIím dead wrong. Maybe this young woman will tell friends not to drop by, and to leave alcohol at home if they do. Maybe sheíll stay sober and find new ways to impress those around her. She may genuinely have decided that if you live in the fast lane, crashes are going to be very bad when they come.
Maybe Paris should watch that controversial documentary on Princess Diana. Even having a driver isnít useful if that driver isnít legit.
Eons ago, as a pre-teen, I wanted money and fame, lusted after it. Although I had only a change or two of clothes, though, the money and fame werenít for material things. As a child, I believed that movie stars, that the rich and famous, simply didnít meet bad ends. They were never in trouble, and they never, ever died messy deaths.
Obviously, I know better now. If I were a betting woman, Iíd bet that Paris wonít stay out of trouble and hasnít learned anything. But maybe Iím wrong, and the rest of her life will fill other young heads with visions of how golden lives should actually be lived.
