Mug shots - the new head shot?

Me - posing like an heiress!
A few years ago, it seemed there was a bonafide celeb D.U.I. phase in Los Angeles. Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie all seemed busted around the same time as Mel Gibson, Mickey Rourke, and others. The first thing to splash across the tabloids is of course the mug shot.

Now the celeb mug shot has become so standard, that it's no longer taboo. In fact it's almost glamorous, as if the slammer is one of the inconvenient little perils of fame.


I was excited when presented the opportunity to have my very own mug shot. Instead of thinking, "Ugh, like a criminal?" I immediately thought, "Cool, like an heiress!" And I didn't have to selfishly risk the lives of others to obtain it. You can score mug shots for free at the San Diego Sheriff's Museum. And since it's in Old Town San Diego on a street lined with free historical tours, a haunted house and kickin' Mexican joints, it's so worth a roadtrip from L.A.
