Paris Hilton is feeling thankful. The 26-year-old heiress, who is set to be released from jail soon, told Ryan Seacrest of E! News that her “gratitude has gone up so much” since she’s been behind bars.
“I’m much more grateful for everything that I have, even just to have a pillow at night or food,” she said.
Serving time has been tough, she said, and visits with her family have been emotional.
The star of TV’s “The Simple Life” also weighed in on her status as a tabloid darling.
“I just realize that the media used me to make fun of and be mean about it,” she said, adding that she is “frankly sick of it” and that she wants to “use my fame in a good way.”
The interview is scheduled to air on E! News on Thursday and Friday.
