Paris Hilton Finds God

She called Barbara Walters and said that being in jail is like being "in a cage".

Why, yes, Paris, it IS like being in a cage.  Those metal bars going down are a dead giveaway.

By the way, it usually takes some time before jailbirds find God.  Paris saw the light in a couple of days:

"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."

"My spirit or soul did not like the way I was being seen and that is why I was sent to jail."

"God," she said, "has released me."

Look, I don’t mean to be cynical.  If this is a true conversion, that’s great.  But why does a part of me think this is a PR ploy?
