Reports suggest that Paris Hilton wants to turn her upcoming prison sentence for drink driving into a Simple Life-style reality show.

The socialite and heiress to the Hilton Hotel fortune was given a 45-day sentence by a Californian judge for violating the terms of her probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case.

Only recently she was appealing for fans to sign a petition to keep her out of jail before the sentence begins on June 5. But now the 26-year-old is said to be considering an alternative use for her time behind bars.

“Paris wants to turn it into a Simple Life special,” a source told the News of the World. “She hopes to be allowed a camera in with her to dissuade others from doing what she’s done.”
