Paris Hilton says she's learned her lesson, but is that just what she thinks endorsement-minded corporations want to hear?

Paris Hilton is faking it — her jailhouse remorse, that is.

The behind-bars-heiress has turned repentant in recent days — but her about-face is more about her finances than her conscience, reports OK!.

“Paris finally saw that her spoiled brat behavior and repeated attempts to escape her sentence would turn fans against her, ruining lucrative endorsement deals,” the mag reports.

The damage, however, may be done. Despite her fame, the partying heiress isn’t in demand among charities — a primary way for celebs to redeem their public images.

A source tells OK!: “It’s going to be hard to find an organization that actually wants her.”

Bodyguard spills beans
Lindsay Lohan’s bodyguard is telling all.

Lee T. Weaver, a former corrections officer and member of the U.S. Army’s Special Forces, started working as a bodyguard for the “Mean Girls” star when Lohan was 18, but quit after two years because “she was just too dangerous to be around.”

Weaver is writing a book about his life protecting such celebs — and tells alleged wild-partying tales on stars such as Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie — but says he’s never had a client who was as much a handful as Lohan.

“I even saw her try to grope Mariah Carey’s bottom and boobs one night as they danced,” he claimed in one of the milder tales to News of the World, also saying that she was less amorous when she encountered Jessica Simpson at a nightclub.

“Jessica was (sitting) with her pals and Lindsay became convinced she was shooting her dirty looks.  She jumped over the table and dived at Jessica, pulling her hair out. I had to pull her off her.”

“I have looked after some of the wildest stars in Hollywood — but never anyone as out-of-control as Lindsay is,” Weaver says. “I lost count of the times I thought she was overdosing and had to carry her out of parties. Every morning I’d breathe a sigh of relief she was still alive.”

Notes from all over
Tea Leoni says that she wouldn’t want her children with David Duchovny to get into her profession. “If my kids were to tell me that they wanted to get into acting,” Leoni tells Entertainment Weekly, “I’d hang myself.”  ... Jennie Garth is following in the footsteps of her former “90210” co-star Ian Ziering and is joining “Dancing With the Stars,” according to In Touch Weekly.  ... Will Smith has revealed the secret of his happy marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith. “Really, really good sex,” the "Pursuit of Happyness" star said, reports WENN. “I’m really good at it.”
