I thought the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes wedding was the most gag-alot spectacle I had ever heard about, but the proposed Paris Hilton post jail party has to be the worst!

Our friend Pat O'Brien of "The Insider" said the other night that poor Paris' parents are reportedly planning a Get Out Of Jail party for her in Las Vegas. Do these people have no sense or sensibilities?

Paris tells Barbara Walters she is ready to shed her "dumb blonde" persona thing. She even goes so far as to invoke her grandmother's name as a breast cancer victim and predicts that she might work toward helping victims of that insidious disease.

A fraction of the money spent on a Vegas party could help a whole family experiencing the cancer illness of a loved one for whole year or more. It might even fund a year or two of research. But, alas, that will have to wait until after the party. We know Paris is so ill due to her jail stint that she will need the rehabilitation skills of all those waiters, dealers and bartenders in Sin City.

Well, Paris, it seems the size of your brain and your heart together are equal to the size of your itty-bitty boobs. Let's hope they are never hit with cancer. Maybe then you'll remember your promise to Barbara. It really is time for you and your family to accept the responsibilities that come with wealth and privilege.

If you think you're in a cage now, wait until you arrive at the Pearly Gates and have to answer for your life. Maybe then you'll wish you had done something to justify your life! If you can't do that, at least write a check for the same amount you spend on the party and give it breast cancer research. You and your family certainly know how to write checks. Maybe this time it could be for a good purpose!
