Kelly McGillis Weds Melanie Leis, Paris Hilton No Jail For Cocaine

Paris Hilton escapes jail for her Cocaine bust, while Top Gun star Kelly McGillis Weds Melanie Leis after almost a decade together.

In case you're wondering the McGillis / Leis, marriage was a civil union. The ceremony was held at Collingswood Municipal Court in Collingswood, N.J.

Last year, Kelly McGillis came out and announced she was lesbian. That caused The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck to say older women become gay because older men date younger women, and pointing to a study that finds many women who come out, do so later in life.

Kelly McGillis is 53.

So from that statement, we should expect Elisabeth Hasselbeck to announce she's lesbian after she turns 50, right?

Paris Hilton No Jail For Cocaine Possession

Well, Paris Hilton may have her issues, but making statements like that one isn't one of them. Hilton avoided jail time in Las Vegas by pleading guilty to cocaine possession and obstructing an officer.

Hilton has to complete a drug treatment program, pay a $2,000 fine and serve 200 hours of community service as part of the plea agreement, and stay out of any trouble beyond a traffic ticket, Clark County (Nevada) District Attorney David Roger said to ABC News.

If you recall, Paris was visiting Las Vegas with her boyfriend Cy Waits, when a Las Vegas motorcycle cop saw them smoking weed and ordered them to pull over. Paris' appearance in a stopped car drew a crowd during Waits field sobriety test, which he failed. So the pair were escorted to a security room to complete the arrest process, when a container fell out that contained coke.

At first, Paris said the purse wasn't hers; now, she says it was and she pled guilty. But the real reason for Paris' escape from jail time was her lawyer, defense attorney David Chesnoff, was the former law partner of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and is perhaps the most powerful lawyer in Vegas.
