Paris Hilton on Sunday used her scant phone privileges to ring up Barbara Walters, who will detail their conversation on Monday's edition of

The View. One excerpt from their chat finds Paris saying, "I used to act dumb," but behind bars, "That act is no longer cute. Now, I would like to make a difference. God has given me this new chance." Hilton on the Seventh Day also welcomed her first visitors at her latest digs, the Twin Towers Correctional Facility (or what inmates deem "the crazy ward"): sis Nicky and on-and-off beau Stavros Niarchos. "She's being strong," Nicky told reporters after her less-than-an-hour drop-by. Paris, indeed, is said to be coping better during this new bid at incarceration, seemingly resigned to seeing it through (per the verbose and lucid statement she issued over the weekend) and back on the unspecified medication she was made to do without during last week's Round 1.
