Porn Stars could learn from Paris Hilton … no seriously!

Although I’ve spoken about this topic before, clearly some people aren’t listening so I’m going to try again only this time I’m going to speak to you in a language I think you can understand and that is the language of Paris Hilton.

Paris Hilton did a reality show for Fox. It was really popular and as great as it was, eventually it got canceled. Her contract with Fox is now null and void and she moves on to to do a television show for E! That last a year, maybe two but like all good things, they must come to an end and now that contract is over. Paris Hilton moved on and did a show for MTV Networks, something about having a new BFF. This lasted at least two years. During all of this time Paris Hilton launched at least one music album, a line of handbags, a very popular line of jewelry through Amazon and a separate line of clothes. And all the while she’s graced the covers and pages of more magazines than anyone could care to count.

Through all of these different contracts, each time one thing remained the same and that was the fact that she kept control of her name, her personal website and her myspace page. Sure typically bigger companies like MTV and even Fox have an entire marketing department that could have maintained these pages for her but instead she had her people do it. Why? Well if you have to ask that then you are probably one of those girls who do stupid shit like letting the bigger porn companies have more control over your name, your only true asset.

I went to a few girls to talk to them off the record and ask them why they agreed to things like letting a porn company rename them, running their myspace pages or controlling their trademarks and time and again I pretty much got the same answer and was that, it was just the way things were done or if they didn’t comply they feared the company in question wouldn’t sign them to a contract.  Well you are dumb asses my friends.  Your name is who you are and it is all you have in the end and if you let anyone else have any control over it, you always run the risk of losing it.  Don’t be stupid.  Protect your most valuable asset and that is your identity.

Porn Star vs Movie Star, is there really a difference?

With all this talk of Brittney Spear’s vagina and Pamela Anderson’s sex tape and Paris Hilton and her who knows how many sex tapes and Kim Kardashian, the daughter of the OJ Simpson lawyer fucking some guy who used to date Whitney Houston and Tom Sizemore, the Golden Globe-nominated actor, who mind you had rolls in 11 real movies from 2008 alone, did his own sex tape and then there is Mini Me from the Austin Powers movies with his sex tape and holy shit where was I going with this?  Oh yes I remember now … the line between Hollywood and porno valley is becoming more blurred each day.  For the love of God even Oprah has mentioned her vagina on the air, coining the word Va-Jay-Jay and catapulting it into mainstream speech.  And to make things even more confusing, former porn stars, leave porn go into the real movies and then play the roll of a porn star (aka Traci Lords in the movie Zack and Miri make a Porno).

So since I recently discussed the release of Jenna Jameson’s new movie Jenna Loves Pain 2, I thought I would do the same for a mainstream movie that looked rather interesting especially since realistically speaking there are so many celebrity sex tapes out there, chances are someone in this movie has one.

Did you know that Tim Burton is making a 3D version of Alice in Wonderland?  Well did you know there was also a porno version of this movie called Alice in Bondageland?  Oh it’s true!    In Tim Burtons’s 3D Version of Alice in Wonderland, we have some major stars signing on.

Anne Hathaway is lined up to join Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter for director Tim Burton’s adaptation of “Alice In Wonderland.”  Anne Hathaway is slated for the role of the White Queen opposite Bonham Carter’s Red Queen, according to the Hollywood Reporter.  Little-known Australian actress Mia Wasikowska has landed the lead role of Alice, while Depp will portray the Mad Hatter in pal Burton’s take on the Lewis Carroll classic.  The film, which is due for release in 2010, will mix live action with animation and will be in 3D.

Microsoft Press Conference Misses The Boat

So I’m watching this seemingly never ending bore fest known as the live Microsoft Press Conference at the E3 2008 show.  An hour and 18 minutes into this thing and it still is showing no signs of ending.  So far nothing major has been announced.  It was like some new Uno game called Uno rush, avatars for Xbox live, new bands for Guitar hero, blah blah blah.   The only thing that really stuck out in my mind was the $48 billion dollars a year the gaming industry earns and the fact that the upcoming 4 games alone are expected to bring in half a billion dollars alone in sales.  Gaming is big business.  But for the most part, the press conference has been a big fat bore.  It was however when they announced a new game called Lips, which is like Rockband only well it’s for singing.  Ya, I know it’s karaoke but anyway, it made me realize these guys really missed the boat.  If they really wanted to make a hit game they should consider another game to add to their family of games like Rockstar, Guitar Hero, In The Movies and Lips, only this one would be called SEX STAR.


That’s right …. you too can be be your own sex star and share it with your friends on the XBOX LIVE.  Be the next Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, Amy Fisher and Kim Kardashian.   Oh come on, you know that should would sell!  Microsoft really is missing the boat not making a game like this.

But in all seriousness, overall nothing major was announced at this press conference.  At least nothing that made you go OMG or WTF.  It was a long and boring press conference with a few special little tidbits but nothing major that was worth wasting an hour and a half of my life.  Their BIG ta da was that they were going to release a version of Final Fantasy 13 for the XBox 360.  I guess to some it’s a big deal but I was more impressed that they teamed up with Netflix and NBC. I don’t know I think maybe the new be the star of your own game show might have been pretty cool as well. Playing 1 vs 100 with your new XBOX Live Avatar and 1,000 of your closest XBOX LIVE friends isn’t really such a bad idea. Microsoft may not have made any MAJOR announcements but they made enough minor ones to really make you be impressed with their XBOX.


DCypher posts: So there are reports all over the web today about the “new” Paris Hilton sex tape. Very exciting.

I heard about this tape a while ago from a very credible source but to tell you the truth didn’t really care all that much. You see, a while back I watched parts of One Night In Paris and wasn’t all that impressed in general. I couldn’t see what the big deal was. She didn’t really seem to be that into it. I kinda felt bad for Rick Solomon. The guy was packing a fire hydrant, drilling her like he was AVN Performer of the Year Tommy Gunn, and she still answered her cellie half way through. That had to hurt.

I don’t let girls answer the phone when I’m going for mine. That’s all I’m saying. Maybe, if it was Angelina, maybe…or Jessica Beil.

Beyond all that though I gotta say that I dig Paris. I’ve had the chance to meet her a few times and she has always been really nice to me. I’m sure she wouldn’t know me from a pizza delivery guy if we met again. I’m not one of her friends. I’m not saying we hang socially, or mix clicks, cause that would be dishonest. Still she impressed me with how nice she was, courteous, interesting to talk to, what have you. After all the shit I read about her I thought for sure she’d have been an icy bitch. Far from it.

The tape apparently came from the same storage locker that produced the Valtrex prescription bottles and the fantastic picture of Cisco Adler’s balls. Let that be a reminder to you to always pay your bills on time people, cuz you never know. I heard you can see clips on YouTurd but I’m sure it’ll be up everywhere soon, maybe even on Luke Ford, so don’t hurt yourself looking for it.


A smiling Paris Hilton, who commanded as much attention behind bars as on the Hollywood party scene, regained her freedom on Tuesday.

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton, who commanded as much attention behind bars as on the Hollywood party scene, regained her freedom early Tuesday after serving three weeks in jail for violating probation in a drunken-driving case.

The incarceration of the 26-year-old multimillionaire, who lampooned her own persona as a clueless child of privilege on the reality TV show "The Simple Life," ignited a worldwide media frenzy and debate about celebrity justice.

The saga hit a crescendo when Hilton was placed briefly under house arrest after just three days in jail, sparking an uproar over what many saw as preferential treatment. Even so, a Los Angeles Times analysis found her sentence far exceeded those served by most inmates for similar offenses.

In the end, Hilton served 22 days in detention, counting her day-long home confinement. The original 45-day term set by the judge was effectively cut in half under a standard credit applied for good behavior.

Hilton emerged from the Century Regional Detention Facility in suburban Lynwood at about 12:15 a.m. with throngs of photographers and camera crews waiting for her.

Dressed casually in dark slacks and a short-sleeved top, Hilton made no statement but smiled broadly as she walked briskly down a paparazzi-lined path to a sports utility vehicle where she was embraced by her mother, Kathy.

The Hiltons left quickly, headed for a Hilton family home in the exclusive enclave of Bel-Air, with several vehicles full of photographers tailing them all the way.

Hilton was scheduled to give her first post-jail television interview Wednesday on CNN’s "Larry King Live" show, after ABC and NBC last week dropped competing offers to grant her a major broadcast network exclusive.

Whether fame worked for or against her, public fascination with the socialite who first gained notoriety in a homemade sex video that surfaced on the Internet never seemed to dim.


The case also led to a rare public showdown between two of Los Angeles’ top law enforcement officers — City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, who prosecuted Hilton, and Sheriff Lee Baca, who oversees the county jail system and moved to "reassign" Hilton to house arrest.

The judge sided with the prosecutor in sending Hilton back to jail to finish her term. But Delgadillo soon found himself under fire for his own misconduct, including improper use of city resources and revelations that his wife had been the subject of a 9-year-old arrest warrant.

Hilton has spoken in interviews of being transformed by her experience, of wanting to put her celebrity to good use, and of feeling that God had given her a second chance.

Her jail time stemmed from her arrest last September on a charge of drunken driving. She pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of alcohol-related reckless driving in January and was sentenced to three years probation.

The following month she was caught driving on a suspended license, which Judge Michael Sauer ruled in May violated her probation. He rejected Hilton’s defense that she had been misinformed about the status of her license by her publicist.

Her lawyers vowed an appeal, and supporters launched a petition campaign seeking clemency from California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. But Hilton surrendered the night of June 3 to begin her sentence.

Just hours earlier, the great-grandaughter of the Hilton Hotels founder had walked the red carpet at a Hollywood awards show where she was the butt of jokes on national television.

Days later, Baca released her to house arrest under electronic monitoring, citing unspecified medical problems that he later described as psychological. Hilton has since said she suffers from claustrophobia.

The judge overruled Baca the next day and ordered Hilton back to jail as she sobbed loudly, "Mom, Mom, It’s not right!"

Richard Levick, a Washington, D.C.-based public relations consultant, said he doubted Hilton’s livelihood as a professional "celebutante" would be hurt by her ordeal.

"In the upside-down world which is Hollywood, this only helps her," he said. "Paris is literally famous for being famous."

How seriously she is taken by the media in the future depends on whether she is willing to give up the celebrity party circuit for more meaningful pursuits, Levick said.

"The reason people find God or find rehabilitation centers is because they want forgiveness, and we’re willing to give it. But they can only sing that song once," he said.


Paris Hilton will be issued her get-out-of jail card on Tuesday after spending almost 3 1/2 weeks in the slammer. The release date, announced Friday, was determined by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Inmate Reception Center. The exact hour of Hilton’s release was not disclosed.

"There’s no set time," said Deputy Luis Castro, adding he didn’t know if any special arrangements had been made to return Hilton to her Hollywood Hills home.

The 26-year-old Hilton, who was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case, surrendered on June 3.

Sheriff Lee Baca released her to electronically monitored house arrest on June 7, citing an undisclosed medical condition he said made her a better candidate to serve the rest of her time at home.

Her sentencing judge, who had specifically barred Hilton from house arrest, ordered her to court the next day and returned the sobbing hotel heiress to jail.

Although her sentence was for 45 days, authorities have said all along that with time off for good behavior and because of crowded jail conditions Hilton was likely to serve only 23. Tuesday will mark the 24th day since she surrendered following an appearance at the MTV Movie Awards.

Hilton’s release is scheduled for the same day Baca is to appear before the county Board of Supervisors, which is investigating whether her June 7 release amounted to preferential treatment.

The sheriff has said Hilton’s celebrity focused so much attention on her case that she actually served more time than an average person would have under the same circumstances.


With two more days left for her release, Paris Hilton has already planned her post-prison activities.

In a recent phone call with American television personality Ryan Seacrest, Hilton revealed that she wants to build a "transitional home" to help women when they are released from jail.

"These women just keep coming back because they have no place to go," Us Weekly quoted Hilton, as telling Seacrest.

The heiress said that the home can be "a place to get food and clothes on their backs," continuing that the habitual crime relapse rate is "a really bad cycle and if we stop it now, we can make our community a better place."

Hilton also divulged that her choice of companions in the future might be very different, after realising that they were apparently not a good influence on her.

After deals with ABC and NBC fell through last week, Paris Hilton will now give her first post-jail interview to Larry King on CNN on Wednesday night.

Mike Sitrick, a spokesman for the Hilton family, announced the agreement yesterday.

Ms. Hilton is expected to be released on Tuesday from jail in Los Angeles, where she has been serving a sentence since June 3 for charges related to traffic violations.

She and her representatives have been negotiating for the exclusive rights to the first interview for most of the past week. Both ABC and NBC were heavily involved in pursuing the interview, expecting it to attract high ratings.

But the negotiations turned sour late last week when news accounts described the interaction between the networks and representatives of the Hiltons, which involved potential cash payments for materials that the Hiltons would provide with the interview, like photographs and videos.

ABC had offered $100,000 for that deal but was told by the Hilton side that NBC was offering far more. On the print side, People magazine had made a deal to pay $300,000 for photos that would have accompanied an interview with Ms. Hilton.

In the wake of all the publicity about the financial negotiations, all deals were withdrawn. Mr. Sitrick issued a statement saying Ms. Hilton would not seek money for an interview. ABC and NBC still declined to put on the interview.

Instead, Mr. King will interview Ms. Hilton. A spokeswoman for his program, Bridget Leininger, said yesterday that no money had been paid for the interview. “Larry King never pays for interviews,” she said.

But Ms. Leininger said she was unsure whether the program was going to use any photos and whether any fee would be paid to Getty Images, a photo agency that had previously made a deal to acquire rights to the first pictures of Ms. Hilton home from jail.


Inmate No. 9818783 has left the building.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department held a news conference outside the Century Regional Detention Facility announcing Paris Hilton’s release from prison.

According to the sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore, Hilton was "reassigned" because of medical reasons.

Whitmore said, "With the help of medical personnel and doctors, it was determined that she be reassigned to a community based electronic monitoring program."

In other words, Hilton is now under house arrest. She will be confined to her home and required to wear an ankle bracelet for 40 days. The ankle bracelet has a range of 3,000 to 4,000 square feet.

If she leaves her home, Whitmore said she would most likely be remanded to court and her jail time would be bumped up to 90 days.

The Ankle Bracelet Club

Hilton’s not the only celebrity who has been assigned an ankle bracelet. Last month, a Los Angeles judge ordered the former "SNL" star Tracy Morgan to wear one of the bracelets for 90 days for violating probation for a drunken driving arrest. Morgan wore the bracelet while he hosted Spike TV’s "Guys Choice" Awards.

"Lost" star Michelle Rodriguez turned the ankle bracelet into a fashion statement when she wore it to New York’s fashion week in February of this year. Rodriguez was sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating probation after a drunk driving arrest in Hawaii and she was released from the Century Regional Detention Center — where Hilton was — almost immediately because of overcrowding.

And then there’s Martha Stewart. Stewart was convicted in March 2004 on four counts of lying to investigators and obstruction of justice after selling her shares in the pharmaceutical company ImClone, days before its application for a new drug was denied. She served five months before she was placed under supervised release and required to wear an ankle bracelet for an additional five months.

Was She Cut a Break?

When one reporter asked if Hilton was cut a break, Whitmore responded, "It’s a fair statement, and I don’t know if there’s any way to address that…[we’re] fully aware of this criticism and this action was taken."

He also said if another person, or a non-celebrity, had the same medical problem as Hilton, he or she would also have been allowed to serve time at home.

Whitmore added, "She has paid her debt to society."

The hotel heiress made her exit early this morning.

Hilton served a total of three days in jail, a far cry from what was originally a 45-day sentence that was later reduced to 23 days. She was sentenced to jail time in May for violating her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

Hilton checked into the facility Sunday night after making a surprise appearance at the MTV Movie Awards.

According to Hilton’s lawyer, Richard Hutton, his client was held in a special unit where she spent 23 hours a day in a solitary cell. Hutton also said his client was doing well under the circumstances after her first night behind bars.

"The Simple Life" star pleaded no contest to a reckless driving charge in January and was sentenced to 36 months of probation. When she was later pulled over by the California Highway Patrol, Hilton was told she was driving on a suspended license and signed a document acknowledging she was not to drive. She was then pulled over by sheriff’s deputies Feb. 27 and charged with violating her probation.




Paris Hilton has filed a federal lawsuit in Los Angeles to shut down a subscription-based Web site and get her personal possessions returned.

The site, launched Jan. 23, offers viewers willing to pay $39.97 a chance to check out Hilton’s diary entries, passport, phone and email contact, medical records, credit card receipts, personal photos and selections from her videotape library, said.

Hilton’s lawsuit called the site “one of the single most egregious and reprehensible invasions of privacy ever committed against an individual.”

A statement on the Paris Exposed Web site said the collection was purchased in a November 2005 public auction after the heiress failed to pay a monthly fee for a storage facility where the items were housed.

In the suit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Hilton claimed Nabil and Nabila Haniss bought the items at auction and eventually sold them to Badria Persa, who created the Web site. Hilton claimed that her representatives tried to buy back her belongings, but the offers were rejected.

Hilton’s suit said she and her sister leased the storage unit in 2004, shortly after they moved from their Los Angeles-area home following a burglary.
