Paris Hilton is going to work her trip to jail for as much PR as possible. She’s hired a hair and makeup team to show up at her place on Monday and prep her for her trip to jail. I wonder if she’ll be able to summon them to the prison before she’s released, because that’s when she’ll really need the help:
Sources say the jail-bound heiress has ordered a hair and makeup team to meet her at her Hollywood Hills home at 9 a.m. Monday.
It’s understood that the glamorous inmate-to-be plans to turn the perp walk into a catwalk, and she wants the media to see her looking her best.
“The timing is to make sure she makes all the celebrity weeklies,” an insider says.
“Paris is a genius at marketing herself. She managed to turn having a sex tape to her benefit, and she’s going to do the same out of going to prison.”
But the pal observes: “It’s not just about marketing, it’s about making money. If she can set up her entry into jail in a very grand way, the payoff will be greater.”

Hilton is going to show Naomi Campbell what it’s like to serve real time – and cash in big time. She’s also rumored to be writing a prison diary to help her get through her three plus weeks of boredom. Sources quoted by the NY Daily News say she could get up to a million bucks for it if it’s believable. Given my knowledge of Paris’ writing ability gleaned from reading her letters and diaries found at ParisExposed.com, it’s possible that the GED-educated Paris can write a halfway decent book with extensive editing help. It won’t be revelatory or anything, but I think she can do it.
Meanwhile prison staff have been given written instructions on how to deal with Paris and are being told that anyone who takes pictures of her in jail will be disciplined. Cell phones, cameras and other electronic devices will be banned during Paris’ 23 day stay. She will have a roommate in her cell in the special wing of the jail, a woman who is already serving time for reckless driving and has been picked especially for her. At least she’ll have someone to talk to in order to stave off Blackberry withdrawl.
Paris has been working hard on her image in the past weeks, and has been seen out at church multiple times as well as buying spiritual-themed books. She was even painting pottery.
While Paris is in jail the world will go on, and we’ll breathe a sigh that we don’t have to witness her comings and goings for a few weeks this summer. She’s going to do her best to make sure we don’t forget her, though, and will turn her stint in prison into even more publicity for her bland brand image.
