    Hilton appeared calm in court .... I guess not only did she possess some, she was probably also under its influence 😉

      I'm thinking alot of people want to see her locked up. The story would probably get the most hits, or at least most.

      That's not true. It is often overlooked. At most she will receive a fine.

    lol Breaking News! Come on CNN. I agree that people (for some reason) are interested in what she does and the story is certainly news-worthy but its does not deserve the "Breaking News" Status.

    This is certainly NOT news worthy. Not only should this not even be listed on CNN, I find it awful that this is given the "breaking news" banner at the top of the site. Seriously?
