(Newser) – Still convinced she got a "raw deal," an almost Zen-like Paris Hilton spilled the beans yesterday about her 23-day stretch in stir, where the food "wasn't that tasty" and being strip-searched was the most humiliating experience of her life. Also especially tough: not being able to hug her dad on Father's Day, the heiress told Larry King.

She read fan mail and got reacquainted with God, Hilton said. She also read the Bible, though she couldn't recall a favorite verse. "Don't serve the time; let the time serve you," she said, waxing wise. A reformed woman, Hilton told King she plans to dump troublesome friends—she declined to name them—and is "going to follow all the laws."
