Stars in Crisis: Richie Sambora's Rehab Confession and the Latest Paris News
Paris Hilton is "settling in" to jail, said her parents, and now her friends are weighing in!
"Paris, we're thinking of you - and we love you," said former N'Sync member Lance Bass.
"I think you always need to take responsibility for your actions and what you do," added Paris BFF Kim Kardashian. "But I think they're definitely giving her a hard time and making an example of her."
Paris has no shortage of supporters, that's for sure - jail sources at Lynwood revealed she has received more mail than any other inmate in Los Angeles.
Kathy Hilton said that when she's not staring at the walls, Paris is "reading a lot of her fan mail and family letters and basically just reading and just sitting there thinking."
Paris is expected to be released next Monday.
Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan could be out, too - of rehab.
Sources say she's expected to leave Promises treatment center in Malibu on June 28.
Just don't look for her to be celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas - the party's just been called off.
Lindsay was supposed to have the big bash at Pure nightclub in Sin City, and it was reportedly sponsored by a vodka company.
But now that Lindsay is in rehab for the second time, the party is over - and that's something her estranged father Michael is happy about.
"She'll be out soon, but I'm happy to hear that the party at Pure, from what I understand, is cancelled," Michael told "Extra."
We caught up with Michael in New York, where he told us he's still waiting to hear from his daughter.
"I think it's in her heart that she's been ready to talk for a long time," Michael said. "It's just other people kind of put the wrong thing in her head. Maybe that's one of the reasons why she's where she is today."
Also on the mend is rocker Richie Sambora.
He entered a treatment facility a few weeks ago, but he set the record straight about his ordeal.
He told NBC's Matt Lauer, "I was just drinking too much, and I needed to get my life together. I'm still in therapy, but it's good; it's great. I feel fine."
