Paris Hilton says jail term has changed her

'Mystery meat' was hard to swallow, though

Hot from serving a jail term for drink-driving-related offences, Paris Hilton has promised to be a better person and said she learned a lot from her "traumatic experience" behind bars.

The hotel heiress told CNN's Larry King that she had been "confined for three-and-a-half weeks in a little cell" and that is was "just overwhelming to be out and to be free again".

It's hard to imagine how difficult it must have been for the Simple Life star to go without basics such as her Blackberry and mobile phone, but luckily she did have the Bible to read.

She told King: "I feel like God does make everything happen for a reason. It gave me time out in life to find out what was really important and figure out who I am."

Jailbird Hilton had been shacked up in an 8x12 cell containing a metal bunk bed, toilet and desk away from her fellow inmates for 23 hours a day.

Responding to criticism that the she had received preferential treatment, Hilton said, "I was treated like every other inmate, no better no worse."

At one point, holding back the tears, our Paris read from a journal she had written while banged up. We'll spare you the full gory details, but titbits included describing her life as "a process, a gift and a journey". Gawd bless her.

The tortured starlet said she struggled to enjoy the "jail slop" food served up. Apparently the baloney sandwiches she was given for lunch contained "mystery meat" which she described as "really scary".

Alas, her jail term is over now, and the 26-year-old blonde star, who admitted to King that she had "been a little immature in the past", now plans to "raise awareness for many great causes" including breasts and kids.

Hilton, who is "not much of a drinker", said she was overwhelmed by the support she received from young female fans around the world.

"I'm an adult and I have to just grow up and be a good role model for these girls."

But, not wanting to leave the men out of her big comeback chat, Hilton added that the husband of her dreams "is out there somewhere".

Meanwhile, one journalist has taken a stance against reporting on the trials and tribulations of Paris.

But, not wanting to let the side down, we at El Reg will continue with all the Paris coverage you could possibly need. ®
