Why Is Paris Always Getting Into Trouble?

Why the heck does Paris Hilton continue to get into trouble? What makes her think she can still get away with her bad behavior even after she got caught years ago and even served time in jail?
There are a few reasons Paris continues to get into trouble.
1. Intelligence - or lack thereof. Without ever having met Paris it’s hard for me to comment too extensively on her intelligence but one can safely surmise that perhaps it’s lacking. Seriously, having just a modicum of intelligence would be enough to prevent someone from being so carefree when it comes to drugs…but not Paris.
2. Her super-rich and grand celebrity status likely comes into play as she feels she is immune from, and even above the law. People have always been there to cover her butt and rescue her – a product of the riches and sense of entitlement. There doesn’t seem to be any sign of the rich enablers leaving her.
3. Just as she finds a way to get into trouble, she finds a way out with just minor consequences. Not until they are more severe will behavior begin to change.
4. There’s a biological factor. Drugs target the reward system in the brain, flooding it with Dopamine, a neurotransmitter that controls emotion, motivation, and pleasure among other things. This produces a euphoric effect and sets up a system that in essence teaches the user to seek more and more.
Will this last run-in with the law be the last for Paris? Unlikely ...
