Paris Hilton’s DUI is no laughing matter

Nick Cannon has a new sketch comedy that premieres tomorrow night, April 5th on MTV called “Short Circuitz.” (site has automatic video.)

Paris Hilton did a bit for the show in which she pretends to hawk “What would Paris Do” bracelets that help guide wearers through difficult life decisions. A Paris-esque ditsy blonde is then shown consulting her bracelet after getting pulled over for DUI, when she takes the magic jewelry’s advice and starts getting amorous with one of the police officers.

Paris filmed the bit at her house in early January. She was pulled over for DUI back in September of last year, and was placed on three years probation. Back in January she was willing to make fun of her predicament, but she’s since been busted twice for driving with a suspended license and prosecutors are recommending that her probation be revoked. It’s possible that she could spend some time in jail, but given her legal resources it doesn’t seem likely. Now Paris in jail would make for good comedy.

Paris’ lawyers have threatened to sue if that clip is included in the show:

Paris Hilton acted in an MTV comedy sketch featuring a drunk ditz getting pulled over for DUI – but last week, her lawyers threatened to sue the network if it wasn’t deleted from tomorrow’s debut episode of “ShortCircuitz.” Viewers of the sketch comedy show, exec-produced by Paris pal Nick Cannon, will not get to see a phony infomercial with Hilton shilling “What Would Paris Do” bracelets, The Post’s Don Kaplan reports. In the sketch – which was included on a copy of the show sent to TV critics last week – the action shifts from salesgirl Paris to “real-life” situations in which people look to their bracelets for advice. In one instance, a leggy blonde in a short skirt is busted for drunken driving. After checking her Hilton bracelet, she starts grinding on one of the cops as if he were a stripper pole. “I can’t arrest you, you’re too fabulous,” says the officer.

Cannon and Paris Hilton are friends because they have that Kim Kardashian connection and both go out of their way to avoid her.

Wayne Brady, Ice T, Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg are among the celebrity guests featured on “Short Circuitz” according the preview clip available on the MTV website.

Here’s Paris with his spokesperson Elliot Mintz at Teddy’s on 3/29. That was the night after she got pulled over for driving with a suspended license. She does look like she’s trying not to be miserable, and I have to say that her top is so cute. [via]

    Yes Paris, reality can bite. It’s how the majority of us live our days – every day. We pay consequences for shit like DUI’s. The law wasn’t enacted to infringe upon you’re “lifestyle” whatever that is. They were designed to protect other people who mostly aren’t drunk, from being killed by loaded drivers.

    I have an underlying suspicion the bummed out expression Paris is sporting may be a pathetic attempt to garner sympathy from the judge. Who goes out when they’re too depressed to sport a happy face, even if it’s initially faked just a bit in an effort to un-depress through postitive thinking? Just stay home with Ben & Jerry if you feel that bad.

    With all her money WHY is she drinking and driving??? She could hire someone to drive for her nights out on the town. Stupid girl.

    Hey dogrunner,
    if she hired someone, then she would not be pulled over and she would not be in the news would she? That is her job, to be in the news.

    I wish she is thrown in jail, but then again, she would make a reality show in jail and earn millions from it. It would be a ratings buster. I would watch it.

    retarded… if she doesn’t go to jail and lose her rights to drive completely high and drunk, there needs to be a riot in beverly hills.
    goodbye beverly hills…hello bakersfield.

    i think that her mom and dad should have to drive paris around, not this hired tool mintz.
    paris needs to open a new boutique (whorehouse) hotel called magical cunt.

    she better get some discipline. it’d be outrageious for her not to. i think she will get punishment (if there is any justice in this world)since the justice system tends to go harsh on celebrities to prove a point. GO TO JAIL!
