Paris calls Barbara Walters with update

Another Paris Hilton update... This girl obviously loves all the press, and even called Barbara Walters from prison to discuss her mental state over the weekend. On this morning's View, Walters told viewers she received a call from the heiress on Sunday at around 3 pm. "I feel as if I'm a different person," Hilton said, according to the View host. "I used to act dumb. That act is no longer cute. Now, I would like to make a difference. God has given me this new chance." Walters said the socialite "sounded tired but totally aware of what she was saying," and reports that Hilton has been inspired by a spiritual adviser and self-help books. Of reports that she was heard "wailing, screaming and sobbing" during her first three days in jail last week, Hilton disagreed, telling Walters, "I was not eating or sleeping. I was severely depressed. I felt as if I was in a cage. I was not myself. It was a horrible experience." Hilton also said that her fellow inmates have been kind to her and that she is wearing a standard prison-issue brown jumpsuit with no makeup. "I haven't looked in a mirror since I got here," she said. "I am not that superficial girl." The heiress said she is hoping for an early release and that she's interested in doing charity work, either for breast cancer or multiple sclerosis causes, and would like to open a "playhouse" for sick children.
