First Days of Paris's Lockdown

So Paris has officially been on lockdown for two days now, twenty-one to go.

Arriving at the Lynwood detention center she was sentenced to, at 11:15 pm on Sunday night, sources say she was “quiet” as she went through her medical screening that did NOT include the regulatory cavity search. She then changed into her orange jumpsuit and was escorted to her cell where as of now she has no cellmate, but there could be one in the future. The entire process, which typically takes as long as twenty-four hours for some inmates only took Paris a mere hour.

US Weekly reports that she was given lunch through a slot in her door at 2pm on June 4th and called her father Rick. Paris is allowed fifteen minutes of phone time a day and The New York Postreported that a guard had to assist her in making a collect call because she has never done so before.

Poor Paris, texting is not permitted.

As Paris’s time has gone on however, sources at TMZreport she is “scared” and as she walked to her cell yesterday the inmates began chanting her name. It is reported that she smiled and waved. In phone calls to her parents she is complaining of her cell being “freezing” and that she has not been able to sleep or eat. She said the guards have been nice to her and other inmates, maybe the ones who led the Paris cheer, gave her items like an origami butterfly and a drawing.

In other Hilton family news, while Paris was in the slammer, her underage brother Barron, was getting mugged at knifepoint at Penn station in New York City after trying unsuccessfully to get into club Stereo with a group of friends. Luckily, two security guards pulled up at the right moment and chased the mugger away.

Hasn't this family been through enough!!!??!
