The New Brat Pack

You have to love the headline in this story:

Star of 'Simple Life' Heads Behind Bars

And then of course, there's the opening line of the article:

Nicole Richie today became the second "Simple Life" star to be sentenced to time in the slammer.

But then we read further and see:

Richie, like her co-star and friend Paris Hilton, was sentenced to four days in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence of drugs.


That doesn't seem to be such a story. Unless, you (like me) fail to see where the message is being driven home.

I seriously doubt Paris Hilton has learned her lesson. Right after she was released, she went on Larry King and lied her ass off. We all know now that Lindsey Lohan, didn't learn a damned thing from her first DUI. Britney has been reported to have been on some kind of mind-altering substance in a recent photo shoot, and apparently has defied court orders that her children not be taken out of the state of California.

These girls are essentially out of control and if their behaviors are not curtailed soon, they run the risk of killing someone, someday. They just don't get it. They think they are above the law and thumb their noses at the justice system, flagrantly and often.

But that's not the half of it. These instances are just the ones we know about. How many more times have they driven drunk or high, and not gotten caught?

It's too late to spank them, which is what they surely needed when they were younger (and probably didn't get). But it's not too late to make them do some serious time for their offenses. (Unless we would like to wait for them to kill someone innocent, first.)

It almost seems as if going to jail is becoming the new Hollywood sheik.

Next they'll be breaking laws on purpose then hiring stylists and consultants to help with their mug shots and grand entrance/exits from the slammer.

But hey, if that's all the talent they've got... let the shoe fit.

Wouldn't that be "chic" If I may!

Yes, it is. But if it's close enough for government work, it's close enough for me. ;)

You may. Sorry, too many sheikhs on the brain these days..! Or maybe its just CRS, or one of its many derivatives.

Hey, not I, an orthodox man, but many people may just beg to differ on that.
