Or so The Simple Life simpleton tells Diane Sawyer on Good Morning, America in an interview to air tomorrow and Friday. "I'm almost four months," she adds, noting that boyfriend Joel Madden of Good Charlotte is the babydaddy.

As for the four-day jail sentence she received after pleading guilty to DUI last week, she says, "If I could personally apologize to every single person that has lost a loved one from drunk driving, I would. Unfortunately I can't, but this is my way of paying my dues and taking responsibility and being an adult."

It certainly beats her original statement that she wasn't plastered, merely high on pot and prescription drugs. Does that count as "growth"?
