Even before Hollywood's hotspots closed this morning, Paris Hilton was released from her three-week incarceration in an LA County women's jail.Paris could easily have gone out to revel in her new freedom. She could have snubbed her nose at a justice system that seems to have betrayed her (twice) based solely on her "celebutante" status. But she didn't. The rehabilitated Paris -- possibly influenced by the advise of her new crisis communicator, Mike Sitrick -- went directly home with Mom and Dad.

If collect calls from the slammer are to be believed, that ride was just the beginning of Paris' radical behavior change. In chats with Ryan Seacrest and Barbara Walters, she talked about her new outlook on life: "I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute," Paris told Walters, "It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me."

Paris will likely have plenty more to say about being a role model -- and how she intends to retain that position -- in her first post-jail interview, this evening on Larry King.
