(Newser) – Paris Hilton says she's found God and will change her life at the end of her 45-day jail term. Barbara Walters chatted with the heretofore mischievous and materialistic heiress on a collect call from prison, and recapped the conversation on yesterday's View. "I have become much more spiritual," Paris said. "God has given me this new chance."

Her face parched without its usual moisturizers, the once-lost Hilton told Walters that she'd been looking into her Bible instead of the mirror. Her newfound faith is ecumenical: She's also turned to self-help tract The Power of Now. Hilton says she's dropped her appeal and accepted her 40 days the wilderness. "My spirit or soul did not like the way I was being seen and that is why I was sent to jail."
