Paris Hilton: No Apologies — Part 2

Still not quite an apology, but …

Barbara Walters reports on an exclusive jail house phone interview with Paris Hilton, in which Paris says:

“I’m not the same person I was,” she said. “I used to act dumb. It was
an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not
who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who
looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have
the power to do that. I have been thinking that I want to do different
things when I am out of here. I have become much more spiritual. God
has given me this new chance.” (

As for future plans:


She said she would like to help in the fields of breast cancer — her
grandmother had breast cancer — or multiple sclerosis. Her father’s
mother suffers from that disease.

She thought she might get toy companies to build a kind of
Paris Hilton playhouse, where sick children might come, and the toy
companies could donate toys.

Maybe there is more to Paris than meets the eye. We’ll see how this new resolve holds up when she is released (and if she actually apologizes for something, thus retroactively making this a legitimate Apology Index topic.)

Paris Hilton: No Apologies

Several Valued Readers of Apology Index have asked, “Why don’t you write about Paris Hilton?”

Quite simply, because — as best I can determine — Paris Hilton hasn’t apologized for anything.

As we all know, Paris Hilton was busted for drunk driving and busted again for driving with a suspended license and did three whole days of hard time in jail before being remanded to house arrest. But nowhere in the blanket coverage of all this have I detected any hint of Paris Hilton apologizing for her actions. And I’ve looked.

Believe me, I’d love to comment on a Paris Hilton apology. This is a brand new blog. It is a well known scientific fact that nothing attracts internet traffic like Paris Hilton. Even better if you have Paris Hilton pictures, Paris Hilton nude pictures, or the infamous Paris Hilton sex tape on your site.

But I’m not holding my breath waiting for Paris Hilton to apologize. For that to happen, she would first have to grasp the concept of accountability for her actions.

That could be a long wait.
