Entertainment behind the scenes
Barron Hilton, the 18-year-old brother of actress Paris Hilton and member of the family that founded the Hilton Hotels chain, has recieved three years probation stemming from his drunken driving arrest back in February in the posh seaside community of Malibu, California.
That’s Barron at the far left of this picture with his mom Kathy, dad Rick and Paris at far right.
Hilton must also pay $2,000 in fines and attend three alchohol education programs. He agreed to plead no contest to one charge of driving under the influence and one charge of unlawful use of a license. He will lose his driving privileges for a year, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles said on Wednesday.
Two other misdemeanor charges — one for DUI and a second for being an unlicensed driver — were dropped.
Seems Lindsay Lohan’s showbiz mom, Dina, is having some last minute second thoughts about putting her second daughter Ali, 14, into the limelight.
Ali and Dina are starring in an upcoming E! reality show that will chronicle Dina’s efforts to put her younger daughter on the path to fame (or should that be shame?) enjoyed by big sister Lindsay.
“It’s scary because I did it with Lindsay and got her to the level of success that she is at and with the tabloids…so with Ali now it’s scary…they are already making things up about her,” Dina Lohan told Access Hollywood in an interview.
Ali’s big Hollywood debut comes a year after Lindsay Lohan made headlines for all the wrong reasons — she wrecked her car, served time in jail for drunk driving and cocaine possession, and had two stints in rehab.
Lindsay, who shot to fame at age 11, was also attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings before the age of 21 — the legal age for drinking in the United States.
You have to wonder why Dina didn’t think twice before signing that reality show contract.
