    It would be great if they kept her, but they probably don't want the sleeze either.

    I don't have much respect for Paris, but after I found out the charges against her were dropped and her friend subsequently found guilty of possession, she sickens me. Way to go Paris....why admit the truth and take the consequences like an adult when you can simply use your money to have a patsy take your fall. Your disgusting at best.

    Hilton appeared calm in court assuming, most likely correctly, that her fame and money would save her from any punishment at all for her crime.

    Tell South Africa to keep her. Deny her bail. Force her to do 1,000,000 hours of community service as a toilet scrubber in an HIV hospital!

    First Lindsay Lohan gets punched, now Paris Hilton gets arrested. I just can't take anymore celebrity tragedies.

    When they said she had been detained at the airport, I envisioned some guy running after her: "Wait Miss Hilton...there's still two or three you haven't slept with...."
