Paris Hilton has turned to Buddhism in her ongoing campaign to
avoid jail. The hotel heiress - who has been sentenced to 23 days
in jail for driving with a suspended license - was seen in
Hollywood's Bodhi Tree bookstore picking up a spiritual tome.
Earlier this week, 'The Simple Life' star was spotted clutching the
Bible and a self-help manual.
Lawyers for Paris, 26, have told the socialite she needs to
"live like a nun" if she has any chance of evading jail. Paris has
told friends she is quitting alcohol and partying and has replaced
her skimpy outfits with a new demure look. She also recently made a
public show of playing the loyal daughter by visiting her father
Rick in hospital with a huge get well soon card.
A friend of the star said: "Paris' attorneys have insisted she
live like a nun. She has been strictly advised to stop acting like
a Hollywood brat and appear more humble as they battle to keep her
out of jail.
"They have ordered her to show a judge she has some humility and
social responsibility if she is going to have her sentence reduced
on appeal. That means no booze, no parading round in skimpy
outfits, no partying. She's got to stick with her family and take
on a healthier regime."
Paris is due to begin her sentence at California's female-only
Century Regional Detention Centre in Lynwood on June 5
