Paris Hilton issued a statement yesterday saying she won’t file an appeal and intends to serve out the remainder of her jail sentence.

“Being in jail is by far the hardest thing I have ever done,” she said. “During the past several days, I have had a lot of time to think and I believe that I am learning and growing from this experience.”

James Blunt, of course, was hurt by this statement. He had been under the impression that he was the hardest thing Paris had ever done.

Hilton said she has spent time reading her fan mail and that “I very much appreciate all of their good wishes and hope they will keep their letters coming.”

Reportedly, Paris also loves her family, almost as much as Paul Sculfor used to love cocaine.

Hilton concluded by saying she was “shocked” at the attention her case has received by the media and public officials.

“I would hope going forward that the public and the media will focus on more important things like the men and women serving our country in Iraq and other places around the world,” she said.

While we certainly agree with the lawbreaking heiress, we can’t help but think she’d be singing a different, attention-loving tune if she weren’t behind bars. This is a woman that loves to dominate celebrity gossip headlines.

The heiress issued the statement after she spent her first night alone in a room in a locked-down medical ward after suffering in jail.

Meanwhile, a family friend says Paris’ wail of “It’s not right!” after her re-sentencing on Friday was not a sign that she disagreed with the decision.

“She was taken by surprise when she was restrained from hugging her mom and dad,” the friend tells People magazine. “That’s all she wanted to do — give them a hug. She was startled and spontaneously yelled. Wouldn’t most people? But she was not protesting. Just surprised and frightened.”

Well, not exactly. Most people not named Jason Wahler wouldn’t get into this sort of trouble in the first place.

Hilton then was sent to the Twin Towers Correctional Facility’s Correctional Treatment Center in the adjacent medical building. She was placed in a 120-square-foot room by herself with guards at the door at all times.

“Her cell has a bed, toilet, sink, and a sliver of a window,” says sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Sounds like worse digs than the ones Justin Timberlake recently used against Britney Spears.
