After leaving the jail in which Paris Hilton stayed for three weeks, the Hilton Hotel's heiress vowed she'd never do wrong," according to media reports Thursday.
Hilton was jailed for violating probation in a drunken-driving case.
"I'm a good person. I'm a compassionate person. I have a big heart. I'm sincere, and they'll see," Hilton told media in her first comments since being released on Tuesday from a Los Angeles jail.
Hilton said that she spent time in jail reading the Bible and praying to God for strength.
"There was a nun who works at the jail for all the ladies, and she would come every day and we would pray," she said.
"All of the inmates were very supportive. There were girls next to me," she said. "We could talk through the vents and they were just really sweet."
During her first week in jail, Hilton called television journalist Barbara Walters and pledged to change her party-going ways and give new meaning to her life by pursuing charity work, saying God had given her a new chance.
Hilton also spoke about why she was briefly released to home detention after just three days in jail, which was a move then swiftly overruled by a judge after a public uproar over whether she was given special treatment.
"I was basically in the foetal position, basically in hysterics ... and having severe anxiety and panic attacks," she said.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca explained to the county Board of Supervisors why he had placed Hilton under house detention. He said Hilton had been in danger of harming herself.

"I thought of a great way to celebrate my Finnish heritage at home," she said. "I'm going to look into opening a chain of strip clubs and ill [sic] call them LAPLAND!!!"
Anderson, who has been acting as Magician Hans Klok's assistant in his Las Vegas show, doesn't specify any details of this potential new business venture other than its name.

The singer also scheduled callbacks Friday for two new male backup dancers who will be added to her show, but she never showed up. In her place she sent two of her female backup dancers to record the 21 men for Spears to observe and select at a later time.
She actually attended the first tryout June 7 when nearly 150 men showed up to dance to one of the pop star's new unreleased songs.
"It was dope. It reminded me of that one song you hear at 1:50 a.m., when they call last call at a club, and it's the hottest, nastiest song you've ever heard in your life and you've just got to put your drink down and dance to it. You've got no choice. Your body is insisting on it," said dancer Sam Pete, 25, of Spears's new song.

Sadly for EVA MENDES she wanted to grow up to be a nun... and it's hampering her film career.
The Ghost Rider star hates sex scenes so much that she broke down in tears due to the stress of an on-screen romp with JOAQUIN PHOENIX in new flick We Own the Night.
Eva said: "I did very much want to be a nun when I was younger.
"I guess there is this little Catholic girl still inside me somewhere because otherwise I would probably have had no problem with that scene.
"It's something I just have to deal with."
We Own The Night is the first time Eva has stripped naked in a movie.
With a Spice Girls reunion on the anvil, Simon Fuller has one very important piece of advice for Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham – don’t get pregnant.
Fuller, in a message to Posh, Sporty, Scary, Ginger and Baby, promises that he will make sure that their reunion will take place, and that they will be bigger stars than before.
“I will make this work for you all, none of you realise how amazing you were and still are. It’s good to be back,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
However, he needs a little help from the women themselves, and has drawn up a list of what they can and cannot do.
And while the don’ts include spats with each other, and talking about money, the most important one is getting pregnant, for that would put the whole reunion in jeopardy.
Fuller’s plea comes on the heels of rumours that Posh Spice and hubby David Beckham are trying for baby no.4, hopefully a girl.
Fuller’s list of ‘Dos and Don’ts’ is as follows:
1. Do not talk about money that you will potentially earn from the reunion.
2. Talk about memories of the Spice Girls with affection and pride.
3. Do not get into spats between yourselves over plans and decisions – is it worth it?
4. Respect each other’s personal lives and commitments.
5. Respect each other’s views.
6. Raise any queries with Nicki (Chapman) and myself at the scheduled meeting.
7. Do not confirm or deny any rumours until everything is in place.
8. Do not worry about schedules and time — this will all be arranged with everyone in mind.
9. Do not become pregnant –please.

Christina Aguilera has reportedly told friends she is three months pregnant.
The 'Dirty' singer and husband Jordan Bratman have allegedly been telling pals their happy news, prompting speculation Christina has passed the crucial 12 week stage of pregnancy.
A source told America's New York Post newspaper: "The rumours about her are definitely true. She's been telling friends. She has to be three months now, because she's announcing it."
Earlier this month, it was claimed Christina discovered she was nine weeks pregnant just days before Jordan turned 30 on June 4.
A source said at the time: "Jordan was blown away! He told her the baby was the greatest present ever!
"Christina's always been maternal. There's no doubt Christina will make a fabulous mother."
On June 7, Christina and Jordan were seen leaving New York's Maternal Fetal Medicine Association.
The facility is known for its state-of-the-art ultrasounds and expertise in high-risk pregnancies. The singer was seen later that day with what appeared to be a baby bump.
The 26-year-old star married the music executive in the Nappa Valley on November 19, 2005.
Christina said last year: "I'm going to do one more album and then consider settling down and having kids."
Rumours are rife that suggest a movie based on the board game Monopoly may be in the works! Not only that, but starlet Scarlett Johansson may star in the film!
This is being met with derision by most of the film publications covering it, however stranger things have happened (although admittedly not many).
No details about what sort of plot would be involved, only that Johansson and “Gladiator” director Ridley Scott are both rumoured to be involved.

Halle Berry admits that her biggest regret is getting her ex hubby’s name tattooed on her butt.
The Academy Award winning actress married first hubby, pro baseball player David Justice in 1992 and had his name tattooed on her posterior.
When the marriage ended in divorce in 1996, Berry had the tattooed turned into a sunflower for it represented.
However, Berry now admits to the UK edition of Cosmopolitan that she made a mistake in getting the etching, for she would have just preferred ‘clear skin’.
"I chose a sunflower because when darkness descends they close up to regenerate," Femalefirst quoted her, as telling the mag.
"But I really wish I'd never had the tattoo in the first place. Clean, clear skin is always better," she added.
Berry and Justice found it difficult to maintain their relationship while he was playing baseball and she was filming elsewhere.
She had earlier revealed that she left so despondent after the break-up that she considered taking her own life.

It seems that Paris Hilton’s entry into the slammer has proved advantageous to fellow inmates.
Despite reports that the heiress wont be given any preferential treatment, sources have revealed that the special care to Paris by the jail authorities has benefited the whole facility.
According to Soraya Lopez, an inmate, Paris has become "top dog" in jail been donning make-up and white and pink polka dot prison scrubs instead of the orange suit commentators speculated on.
Soraya also said that fellow inmates were delighted by Paris' presence, as food and conditions in jail improved strikingly.
"They are thankful. The whole facility is benefiting from this - they are feeding us better and releasing us earlier because they don't want people around her,” The Sun quoted Soraya, as saying.
Talking about Paris’ special treatment, Soraya, who served a week behind bars for failing to turn up to court for traffic violations, said that Paris was wearing lip gloss and mascara, unlike other girls, who restricted to using coffee grounds and fruit punch for lipstick and blush.
Soraya also added that Paris’ privileged status even includes her own security guard stationed at her bedside.
Jessica Alba was recently left miffed after a Brit journalist compared her to Paris Hilton, thanks to her new hairstyle.
Alba was at the world premiere of her new movie ‘Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer’ in London when Sky News reporter Neil Sean told her that she was taking hairstyle tips from jailed heiress Paris Hilton.
"So you've got a bit of a Paris Hilton hairstyle going on in the film," Contactmusic quoted Sean, as saying.
To this Alba replied: "I don't think it looks anything like Paris' hair actually."
The actress was later overheard telling a publicist that Sean had gone a bit too far comparing her to the ‘jailbird’.
"Was he telling me I look like a jailbird? That was just so out of order," she reportedly told the publicist.
Alba, who reprised her role as Sue Storm aka The Invisible Woman, in the ‘Fantastic Four’ sequel, saw herself being voted the sexiest film superhero in a Pearl & Dean poll.
The second slot went to actress Jennifer Garner for her portrayal of Elektra in Daredevil/Elektra, while Halle Berry stood third as Storm in X-Men.

It seems Madonna's sexcapades are coming back to haunt her. The singing sex diva of the eighties and nineties is now believed to have almost had sex with John F Kennedy Jr. but they stopped because they did not have a condom!
Madonna, whose debut album Like A Virgin in 1984 instantly made her the sexiest woman in the US, and John, whose father was assassinated US president John F Kennedy, had reportedly checked-in to a cheap Chicago motel in 1988. However, their steamy rendezvous was cut short due to lack of protection.
A close friend of John's back from the Kennedy scion's Brown University days, Rob Littell, is said to have revealed the incident to C David Heymann, the author of new book American Legacy.
According to a US website, Rob is reported to have said, "Madonna and John were working their way around the bases, and as they rounded third and headed for home, she asked him if he had any protection. He didn't, so now they began discussing how they were going to get a hold of a prophylactic. She was still legally married to Sean Penn, and John had a steady girlfriend... They were afraid of being busted.
They couldn't very well just meander into a pharmacy and ask for a pack of Trojans. They were too well known... To John's great chagrin, the relationship was never completed." Madonna subsequently went on to separate from Sean at the end of 1988 and the couple divorced the following year. John, who US society magazines described as a political playboy, married Carolyn Bessette in September 1996, but the pair died in a tragic plane crash in July 1999. Madonna, 48, is now married to British film director Guy Ritchie. The diva doesn't shock anymore, but she is making a comeback with her music.
Lindsay Lohan had a series of post party lesbian trysts, according to a former bodyguard who quit when her wild ways became too much. Lee Weaver worked for Lohan for two years and is now planning to reveal all about the Mean Girls star's drug use and partying lifestyle as part of a new tell all book. And one of the most shocking revelations is Lohan's alleged lesbian interests.
Weaver tells Britain's News of The World newspaper, "She used boys for drugs and girls for thrills. I lost count of the women she took back to her hotel room from clubs."
And Weaver admits Lohan even tried to seduce Mariah Carey: "I saw her try to grope Mariah Carey's bottom and boobs one night as they danced. One time I went to look for her in a club bathroom and found her in the corner French kissing a girl."

Angelina Jolie was voted by readers of After Ellen, a website that provides news, reviews and commentary on lesbian and bi-sexual woman in entertainment and the media, to be in the number two spot of their top 100 hot list.
After Ellen states...'Let's face it: Maxim doesn't cater to lesbians. In fact, you could say it flies in the face of all that we hold dear, especially when it declares Lindsay Lohan the hottest of all, as it did when it published The Maxim Hot 100 List last month.'
Clearly, After Ellen says, what straight men and lesbians find sexy in a woman is a little bit different. So, in an effort to be fair to its readers, After Ellen asked its readers to nominate their Top 100 Hotties.
To begin with, 8 of the top 10 women on After Ellen's list aren't even on the Maxim list...with Angelina Jolie and Lena Headey being the exceptions. In addition, only 4 of the women who made Maxim's top 10...Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel and Lindsay Lohan...appear somewhere on the After Ellen list.
After Ellen says that their list has depth...this is noted by Leisha Hailey snagging the top spot...while Lindsay Lohan came in at number 79.
In addition, they note, there is one thing all the women on the list have in common...they're not just pretty faces. Many of these women aren't just women we like; they're women we want to be like...women we admire as well as desire.

The place where Brad Pitt finds it easiest to get his lady love Angelina Jolie talking, is in the bath.
The ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ actress, in an interview with Marie Claire magazine, reveals that the easiest way her beau can get her talking, is by getting into the tub with her while she’s relaxing after a long day’s work.

"I'm so happy for my children – especially Mad. I didn't know if he was ever going to have a dad. So when I watch them having real strong father-son time, or even when Mad tells me, 'This is a boy thing, Mom' – it's just really beautiful to see," she says.
As for her own relationship with Brad, Jolie says that their connection has grown over time, and that they are ‘lucky’ that they turned out to be right for each other, especially since their family has grown so quickly over the past two years.
The couple, who met on the sets of the 2005 film ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’, embarked on a relationship after Pitt’s divorce to former ‘Friends’ star Jennifer Aniston came through in March 2005.

"We could have been very wrong, but every challenge we hit has brought us closer. It has been that kind of relationship," she adds.

The 23-year-old, just tied the knot with Blake Fielder-Civil.
'I don't want to be ungrateful,' she tells The Sun. 'I know I'm talented but I wasn't put here to sing. I was put here to be a wife and a mum and look after my family.

Britney Spears may be the next judge on American Idol! Britney Spears, who can't sing and lip-synchs during most of her concerts, may actually become an American Idol judge in place of the 'loopy' Paula Abdul.
According to Mike Walker, a rumor mill/gossip 'expert', Idol is considering switching Paula Abdul, an experienced artist who's worked with countless stars and has been with American Idol since the get-go, with Britney Spears, a young pop star inexperienced in recognizing and building upon a voice talent.
Ok, American Idol took a big hit in ratings this season, but c'mon! Even Britney's fans are probably smacking their heads against the wall, hoping the agonizing pain will block out the thought of the pop princess judging someone else's singing.
Everyone knows that if American Idol replaces Paula Abdul with Britney Spears, it's for publicity - and it can be guaranteed fans will tune out because of that. Nothing personal Brit, but if American Idol is going to replace Paula, they need someone better than the 'Straight Up' singer.

Retired supermodel Tyra Banks insists that she does not relish booze or drugs, but just holds a wine glass because that makes her feel ‘sexy’.
The America's Next Top Model hostess/judge revealed in a personal web posting that although wine tastes ‘nasty, to her, she orders it and keeps holding the glass to look ‘sexy’.
“So, every now and then I’ll order some wine at the table. I’ll only take two sips, but I’ll keep holding the glass cause it makes me feel sexy, but I still don’t drink it because it still tastes kind of nasty to me,” Hollywood Rag quoted Banks, as telling the website.
The 33-year-old recently learned various mixes with wine to make it taste better.
“I recently went to Napa, California, and I learned how to pair wines with certain tastes, how red wine tastes good with salt and bitter things like lemon,” she said.
With so many celebs entering rehab, one thing for Banks to feel ‘lucky’ about is that she does not have much liking for alcohol.
“I feel like I’ve been very lucky because I don’t really have an addictive personality. I’ve never had any drugs and I had a little taste of alcohol when I was 12-years-old, but that’s about it,” she said.
The model insisted that is a no alcohol girl’ or a ‘drug girl’.
“I’m not really an ‘alcohol girl’ and I’m definitely not a ‘drug girl’,” she added.

"We're not on the f**king red carpet, we're on the street!" TMZ quoted Sienna, as telling the snappers.
After completing a week's work on their forthcoming Dylan Thomas movie, "An Edge of Love," the duo demanded to be left alone.
Sienna offered the paparazzi a deal, a few shots in return for some time alone.
"You never f**king get it cause you're all c**ts and make our lives hell ... we'll walk down the street, but we're not going to stand here and pose ... if you get a photo that's fine but then its a deal that you go!" Miller said.
Keira also supported her new found best pal, requesting the paparazzi to let them have a “nice night.”
"It would be really great if you let us have a night off ... we're just trying to have a nice night,” Keira said.

Jessica alba is considered to be one of the most beautiful, and hottest, young stars in Hollywood, but the only person who isn’t impressed with Jessica Alba’s looks, is the lady herself.
Alba tells Parade magazine that though men’s mag FHM named her the Sexiest Woman in the World this year, she doesn’t really see herself as a sex symbol.
In fact, Alba feels that on most days, she looks less than ordinary.
“I don’t really pay attention to all that. It’s only when people start to treat me like one that it really freaks me out. Most days I wake up and look in the mirror and go, ‘ugh.’ I don’t really think I look all that great,” Us Weekly quoted her, as telling the mag.
Another thing that the star wishes she could be is anonymous. Alba confessed that she only time she willingly appears in the papers, is when she’s promoting a new film.
And this is why she feels that tabloids often make up stories about her.
“I never want to be in the papers except when I’m promoting a movie, but if they have to, they’ll make up lies about me just to have something newsworthy to say. The more controversial the story is, the more buzz it can get, and the more it’ll sell,” she says.
“I prefer to be a little more anonymous, under the radar. I like to be able to slide in and out of situations unnoticed,” she added.
Alba, who reprised her role as the Invisible Woman in the Fantastic Four series, will now be seen on the big screen when the new movie ‘Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer’ hits theatres.
