Paris Hilton is "reflecting on her life and how to make the world better" while behind bars. The hotel heiress's lawyer, Richard A. Hutton, visited her at California's Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood yesterday (04.06.07) after her first night in jail.
As he left the facility, Hutton said: "Her attitude is - I'm going to come in here, I'm going to do my time, get it over with, and I'm going to show the world who I really am. "She's using this time to reflect on her life, to see what she can do to make the world better. "She's doing very well under the circumstances. The staff here have reported that she has been gracious, polite, and thankful for helping her.
The 26-year-old is in solitary confinement in a cell which measures just 12 by eight feet. It has a bunk bed, a toilet, wash basin and two windows - a little one in the door, and one which overlooks other buildings. Hutton insists it is the dangers facing Paris while in prison that have forced the authorities to put her in isolation. He said: "Because of who she is, they had no choice - and believe me, we are more interested in her safety more than anything else - but to place her in administrative segregation. "The one hour of the day she's out, she is allowed to take a shower or talk on the phone. "But my client's reaction to this has been fantastic. I'm very, very proud of her."
Inside sources claim Paris is wearing a short-sleeved, orange jumpsuit. Yesterday (04.06.07) she allegedly still had on the make-up she was wearing the night before at the MTV Movie Awards. Although against prison regulations the socialite has been allowed to keep her hair extensions as staff make exceptions for extensions that are "tightly wound", as hers are. According to gossip website TMZ.com Paris is "not happy, but resigned to getting it done. She's not teary, just very quiet".
