The heiress Paris will get a little less time to spend in the big house due to her good behavior.

Hilton's sentence has been reduced to 23 days according to Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

The sentence was reportedly shortened due to credit given for good behavior - which amounts to her showing up for her latest court date.

The socialite will not be the belle of the ball at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, California - as she will be kept separate from the general population. Hilton will be in a private section reserved for high-profile 'guests.'

Paris Hilton's mother Kathy wants fans of her daughter to learn from the 45-day jail sentence handed to the socialite for violating her probation by driving with a suspended license earlier this month.

In a statement read by family friend and TV anchor Barbara Walters on The View Wednesday morning, Kathy Hilton expressed her wish for something good to come from her daughter's predicament.

Her statement, read by Walters, said: "We can only hope that something positive will come from this. Hopefully, young people who look up to people like Paris will learn from this."


Her sentence cut in half because she showed up?

Well, at least she will be doing time in the "special guest" wing.

I wonder if the special guest wing comes with massage and spa services.

I think she is a good girl to suck this up and not try to hide it or rail against it though.

Oh, she has been doing everything but! She even attempted a myspace petition to send to the governor asking to be relieved from her responsibilities. If anything, her misguided fans will learn that enough whining can get one leniency.

I heard her on the radio several months ago, claiming that she wasn't *really* drunk-driving...it was "all a mistake, and the police were very nice about it."

Since she is going to be in the "special celebrity" suite, I don't see why she shouldn't do the full 2 months (or whatever) of her original sentence.

And isn't all this stuff counter to the judge's original specifications on the sentence?

funny how people have different standards for those with more money, almost as though they think she "should make less mistakes than the rest of us.

i doubt you would be so judgemental of someone middle class.

Well, the public denial of the drunk driving arrest made me lose any respect I'd previously had for her. She made an active, unpressured choice to lie about her dangerous misbehavior to the media.

And as for the jail, I don't see why they have the right to override the judge's sentence. The judge specified that the sentence should be served in jail, in the general population, without reduction for good behavior. I wouldn't complain if the sentence was reduced a little in court. I believe 45 days is longer than standard (in MN; I on't know about CA).

And because she is independently wealthy, and her jobs don't require her to show up 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year, I doubt her 45 days will cause half as much hardship to her as 30 days would cause to the average working woman.

I'm no more judgmental about Paris than about anyone else. I do think a cab or limo would scarcely put a dent in her budget, and perhaps that colors my opinion a bit.

Silly, she doesn't have to rail. She has money. Money makes other people rail for her.

"Disgusting" isn't a strong enough word for this news.

Celebrities really do get preferrential treatment. Horrible. She's not even that accomplished, as far as celebs go!

who could blame her for asking though. Who would not ask?? She is only human and in my opinion, she deserves people minding their own business.

I wont be scapegoating her for the fact that celebrities get preferential treatment... and I am NOT suggesting that they should

Okay. People should mind their own business. But she sure as hell never asked them to start. Given the number of times that she's exploited her preferred position (the sex tape, the TV shows, and now this) I'm gonna say she forfeited the right for peopple to mind their own business a while back.

She should do the same amount of time that an ethnic urban teen should do. Maybe then her perspective might change.
