is what PUNISHMENT for BREAKING THE LAW is supposed to look like.
Maybe, just maybe, she finally gets it.
If not, give it another 44 days of wearing orange overalls (that countless other inmates wore before you), eating microwaved food provided by the lowest bidder, having to use the toilet in full view of the guards and the minimum wage freak on the other end of the CCTV monitor, and being yelled at 24/7 by the other inmates who think you are a whiny bitch getting special treatment because you have a private cell.
Because that is what it is like for everyone else who thinks they are above the law, blatantly violates their probation and pisses off their judge.
Go ahead and refuse to eat. Have your nervous breakdown.
You know who's really laughing at you right now?
Martha Fucking Stewart.
I never thought I'd say this, but compared to Paris Hilton, Martha Stewart is looking like a towering example of class, stoicism and personal responsibility.
I can only hope that this experience will do what her parents have miserably failed to do...instill some fledgling little seed of humility and compassion in this empty, pathetic shell of hubris.
