In the real life soap opera that is the saga of Paris Hilton, she took the bull by the horns over the weekend and spoke directly to Barbara Walters.
As she serves her sentence in jail, Paris Hilton on Sunday phoned ABC News' Barbara Walters to discuss her state of mind, her experience in jail and how she feels she has changed.
Barbara Walters discussed more of her conversation with Paris Hilton on "The View" at 11 a.m. ET today.
Here are excerpts of the conversation.
Hilton said of her first days in jail before she was released to home confinement, "I was not eating or sleeping. I was severely depressed and felt as if I was in a cage. It was a horrible experience," she added.
How is she now?
"I used to act dumb," she said. "That act is no longer cute. Now, I would like to make a difference," she added. "God has given me this new chance."
Hilton also explained the much publiziced "It's not fair" comment as she was being carted off to jail for the second time. According to the celebutant, the comment was made not because of the second bout with jail time, but because the first time she was escorted to the pokey, she was permitted to hug her mom farewell. This time, they would not allow her to hug her mother. That's what Paris felt was "not fair."
The unusual jailhouse call came about because Kathy Hilton, Paris' mother, phoned Walters. During the conversation, Paris rang in on another line.
When told that Kathy was talking to Walters, Paris said she'd like to speak to Walters herself.
Walters then agreed to accept the collect call from Paris in jail. All prisoners are required to call collect. Hilton gets one phone call a day which she may make during the one hour
a day out of her cell. During that one hour, she may also engage in
physical activity. We heard she likes to play ping pong. Hilton also
said that the other inmates were friendly towards her.
