Paris Hilton’s defense: That isn’t my cokepurse!

44100, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - August 24, 2010. Booking photo of Paris Hilton, who was arrested late Friday night in Las Vegas on possession of cocaine. According to police, Paris was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over by police just outside the Wynn Hotel. The driver was arrested for DUI (drug-related, not alcohol) and after conducting a search of the car and Hilton, they found her in possession of a controlled substance. According to Police, tests revealed the substance to be cocaine. The hotel heiress was arrested and released on her own recognizance. Paris' boyfriend, Cy Waits, was also arrested and booked on a charge of DUI.

Here is Paris Hilton’s newest booking photo. Looking especially wonk-eyed, I see. I imagine that as she gets more coked up, her left eye gets even more and more squinty. Anyway, Paris was arrested Friday night in Las Vegas on charges of possession of cocaine. Her lawyer David Chesnoff (Us Weekly says his name is “Chernoff” but I think they‘re wrong) released this statement on Saturday:

“Paris Hilton was released this morning on her own recognizance. This matter will be dealt with in the courts not in the media and I encourage people not to rush to judgment until all of the facts have been dealt with in a court of law. There will be no interviews and no more comments at this time.”

TMZ also reports on Paris’s defense strategy thus far – apparently, Paris told the Vegas cops that the coke purse was not hers. So… yes, there was cocaine in the purse, but the purse was not hers, even though the purse probably contained Paris’s ID, and was probably sitting in her lap. This strategy still isn’t as good as Lindsay Lohan’s coke pants argument, as in “These pants that I’m wearing that have a vial of cocaine, they’re aren’t mine.” TMZ also has some grainy video of Paris’s arrest in Vegas. Also, Gawker pointed out something strange yesterday: while Paris was being arrested and briefly held in Las Vegas, someone was tweeting for her. Her Twitter feed has, like, no relation to what was actually going on at the time of her arrest. Weird.

Here’s Cy Waits, Paris’s boyfriend, who was also arrested. This is his mug shot. Can I admit something horrible? This guy isn’t bad looking. He’s definitely a step up, in the looks department, from that other douche, WhatsHisFace Budget Ryan Reynolds… Doug Reinhardt.

It took four extra pairs of hands to assist Paris Hilton as she carries the numerous bags of purchases after loading up on fall fashions at Fred Segal in Beverly Hills, Ca on August 23, 2010. Paris even brought along her furry little BFF, pooch Mugsy, to aid her in this afternoon's shopping extravaganza!  Fame Pictures, Inc

    Kaiser, we have different tastes in men. “Not bad looking”, compared to what? If it turns out the purse is not Paris’, then it was obviously a setup for publicity.

  2. Po says:

    I don’t think any of these celebs tweet for themselves. Its all product placements anyway, their publicists either do it themselves or hire the job out.

  3. Liana says:

    I think I have different taste in men from everyone here.

    And wasn’t Paris the only female in the car? Bottom line, bitch had possession of the purse and whatever was in it, so, yeah, no. This is like the third time she’s tried that excuse. Hopefully, this time it won’t work.

  4. Green Is Good says:

    They didn’t even make her post bail? Different laws for the RICH and spoiled.

  5. Kevin says:

    Homeboy has the Jersey Shore look going on.

  6. flourpot says:

    Yeah, ew. He’s seriously gross. I can’t stand Paris, she’s such a skank but I do like that little braid in her hair. +1 for her stylist.

  7. Candy says:

    That guy’s twin brother Jessie is dating Jayde Nicole. The boys certianly have a type.

  8. irena NL says:

    Cy is not a good-looking guy.

  9. YOYO99 says:

    Put her in jail and throw away the key

  10. Liz says:

    He looks like Scott Peterson. It’s creepy.

  11. George says:

    Dumb, spoiled rich and pathetic bitch that probably ‘thinks’ everybody is as stupid as she is. If she really thinks, that is!

  12. Innocent says:

    According to Radar Paris wasn’t searched at the scene and her lawyer will get her off on that technicality.
    It’s obvious She doesn’t want to go to rehab or get probation as no one would bet against her being busted with drugs again in the future.

  13. Tia C says:

    More like the gay Jersey Shore look. And could he be any more shiny? Must be hot there in the desert, who knows?

    This story sounds kind of hokey. The cops pulled them over because of smoke? Really? Whatever they were smoking had to be extra smoky to attract attention in traffic! I find that part of the story challenging to believe. But boy, she sure has been dodging frequent arrests lately! She is officially Paris Hilton the Teflon Celebutard!

  14. Faye says:

    One would think jail would have made a longer lasting impact on her. I guess time heals all things, including jail-time and we can go back to drug fueled car rides and expect (and get) special treatment. I thought she had mellowed out since prison, but I guess she was just laying low. Shame.

  15. Claire says:

    I can’t understand why a page such as celebitchy goes as far as calling people names based on their physical imperfections.

    Her “wonk eye” going “more and more” squinty is not simply a cosmetic defect, something easily improved, but a condition requiring quite a serious surgery. Since she still has, as you call it, the wonk eye, I can only assume that she went through the allowed number of surgical procedures and they didn’t help.

    I went through three of such surgeries myself, fortunately with better success than hers but you have no idea what being called “a wonk eye” does to a kid’s self-esteem. I wonder, Kaiser, if you were one of the bullies that’d call me a squint-eye at school.

    Paris Hilton is a shallow and vain woman who gets more attention than she deserves but I believe it’s poor form to pick on people’s ailments or physical condition that they cannot change.

    edit: English is not my first language, so forgive me poor wording

  16. The Juror says:

    Dear Claire,
    Paris damaged her own eye with an expensive, elective cosmetic surgery. People mock her because the IRONY is extreme – as everything about her is fake and superficial, down to her value system.
    BTW Paris Hilton’s twitter account is either written by an employee, is pre-written, or is on time release. Pay no attention to the little man behind the curtain !

  17. Izzards Chick says:

    I agree with Liz…Scott Petersonesque

  18. GatsbyGal says:

    Ew, he looks like a rapist. His mouth is creeping me out. It’s like, his lips are little, but the lines of his mouth keep stretching out on either side.

    Also, I keep noticing…Paris tilts to head to side all the time. Even in her mug shot. She’s trying to hide how weird her left eye looks (the one on her left, not ours). It’s a completely different shape and it’s obvious in a head-on photo of her.

  19. asiont says:

    that’s a lovely mug shot! love it

  20. original kate says:

    soooooo sick of seeing her vapid, wonkey-eyed, orange chicken face.

  21. Raven says:

    Now, if there were ever a spot to use the term “cokewhore” this would be it. And the boyfriend looks like a thug.

    I’m really interested to see the justice system at work here. Will her $$$ and family fortune get her out of serving hard time?

  22. Persistent Cat says:

    I agree with the others, he’s gross. You know he steals from her.

    What bothers me is for most of us, getting arrested is terrifying and could damage our careers, families, etc. She uses it to get publicity. There are no repercussions for her because she’s never going to need to get a real job, etc.

    @ Claire, you’re written English is better than most native English speakers.

  23. Eden says:

    @Tia C

    Your post was funny..
    “And could he be any more shiny?”
    made me LOL.
    Thanks :)

  24. annaloo says:

    WHy do we even report on her anyway? She’s going to get off scot-free, who cares? Arrested again? Call a lawyer, or whoever, she has the $$ to get out of it.YAWN.

    Another day in the life of Paris Hilton…there’s no point. She’s got the eternal get out of jail free card.

  25. dancingnancie81 says:

    As “well bred” and rich PH is, I wouldn’t want my Texan sons hanging out with her. She’s trash.

  26. Tazina says:

    She seems to be going downhill and her choice of men is definitely deteriorating in terms of quality. Why would she even date something that looks like this? And likely a coke addict as well.

  27. Camille says:

    Raven: Agreed!
    They are both fug as hell, he gives me definite creepy, serial killer face *shudder*. If anyone in Hollywood should be hated, its this vapid, untalented, ugly, waste of space bitch.

  28. The Bobster says:

    So whose ID was in the purse?

  29. serena says:

    He looks so wasted.
    Paris is too desperate, I assume she will purposely coke-up to catch some attention.

  30. margo says:

    she has a problem looking directly into the camera

  31. DetRiotgirl says:

    I think she’s starting to look a lot like her mother. What I’m saying is, she’s starting to look old. Yeah, actually, I’ll just stick with the second line.

  32. Emily says:

    I thought that top photo was a mugshot until I started reading. What an odd choice for a booking photo. And what’s with the pose in the bottom pic? It’s completely bizarre.

  33. Emily says:

    Oh, clearly I didn’t read well enough. Oh well.

  34. Mistral says:

    Of course! It’s always “someone else’s” cokepurse…

  35. Aspie says:

    Blech, I just hate hate this dumb bell, racist twit! I really really hope she rots in jail for a really really long time.

  36. Jover says:

    The guy kinda looks like a second tier mma fighter what a couple not sure they would even make a good pair for an episode of cops.

  37. Lita says:

    @Claire – I don’t want to stop anyone poking fun at Paris Hilton, even though you are right :o )

    Also your english was eloquent. If you hadn’t added that last sentence, I should have simply thought you had a brilliant command of language. As a language you are not confident in: mucho kudos.

  38. mtngirl says:

    Paris to Officer:

    Hello Officer. What, me? I’m fine. How are you? What? Oh, that’s not my purse! What? Well, there was some skank down on the strip impersonating me and I asked her to stop. What? Well, somehow she grabbed my purse from me and handed me HER purse. What? Yeah, I’ll testify to that, will I be out by 4am? I’m here on business…

  39. logan says:

    Drug users and non drug users all around the world are laughing their a** off at the STUPIDY of this person. If you have one brain cell left in that little head of yours USE IT.
    God does have a sense of humor, he gave us Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

  40. Westcoaster says:

    Does this woman do anything else but party? Paris will be one rough looking woman by the time she is 40!

  41. e says:

    They let people go without bond all the time, even for crimes that seem serious. I so want to see Paris get burned and it makes me angry that she gets away with so much but they were not giving her special treatment by letting her go on her own recognizance.

  42. dread pirate cuervo says:

    @Claire, Paris hasn’t gotten the surgery she needs to fix the wonk b/c she would have to take out her contacts & couldn’t fake the baby blues anymore. Vanity = wonk.

  43. Moreaces says:

    I guess there’s nothing Paris can really do about that “wall eye” and her boyfriend looks like a grease ball, not cute in the least

  44. Jeri says:

    Gee, her & Lindsay have the same excuses. Must be a Hollywood thing, all this lending & returning things with drugs in them.

  45. abby says:

    The boyfriend kinda reminds me of that Canadian guy that was on “Megan Wants A Millionaire” and killed his wife and then killed himself. Kinda reminds me of him.
