“She’s scary smart. But smart only takes you so far. She also has an amazing knack, perhaps more than any other star, for knowing how to shape a public image.”

Bonnie Fuller, the former editor of Us Weekly and Star magazines, discussing Angelina Jolie.

The New York Times has an extensive article today discussing how Angelina Jolie has manipulated the media into creating a sugar-sweet public image for her.

11Lindsay and Sam in Couple’s Therapy???

Apparently the two are fighting so incessantly now that they’ve begun couple’s therapy.

The twosome “are fighting like cats and dogs,” a source tells Page Six. “They fight every day, screaming, crying and yelling at each other.

“Sam and Lindsay are still very much together and very much in love, but drama just seems to follow Lindsay, and Sam hates it. She deals with Lindsay every day. And every day for Sam means questioning, ‘Is this worth it?’”

Um, Lindsay doesn’t need couple’s therapy, she needs AA. If you keep Lindsay Lohan out of the nightclubs and away from drugs and alcohol, this kind of shit doesn’t happen. It never happens when she’s sober.

Does no one else see the pattern here???

3Paris Says She and Benji Are “Taking a Break”

Paris Hilton called into Ryan Seacrest’s show this morning to clarify a few things about her split from Benji Madden.

[R]ather than calling it a breakup, she said, “Right now we’re just taking a break.”

Hilton also left open the possibility that she and Madden could get back together down the road.

“He is an incredible person, and we will always be really close,” Hilton said. “We will see what happens in the future. I am still in love with him.”

As for why they decided to go their separate ways for now…

“He has been working nonstop with his brother on his new record. I am working and traveling,” she said. “All these reports that say I dumped him aren’t true. This is a decision we made together as adults.”

Hilton also claims that, despite the rumors, she is not getting back together with her ex-beau Stavros Niarchos, who she saw last weekend at a party in Miami.

“That’s ridiculous,” she said. “I was on a girls’ weekend with some BFFs from [my MTV] show. Someone must have gotten a quick camera-phone picture of Stavros saying hi. He’s someone I hadn’t seen in a year.”

She also says that the split won’t affect her friendship with Nicole Richie, who’s dating Benji’s brother Joel. “Nicole and I don’t get in each other’s relationships. We have a friendship that has been going on since we were 2 years old,” she said.

Whatever, Paris Hilton can’t be alone for more than 20 seconds. She’ll be photographed sucking face with someone else any minute now … let’s see, who’s single recently? Guy Ritchie? Oooh, how much fun would that be??? Please, Paris?

34Congrats to Ashlee and Pete!!!

They are now the proud parents of a baby boy, whom they’ve named Bronx Mowgli Wentz.

I actually think Bronx is kind of a cool baby name. The Jolie-Pitts must be freakin’ pissed, though. That’s probably what they were going to go with for their next boy. I mean, how many names ending with X are there, anyway?

The only Mowgli I can think of is the kid from the Jungle Book. No idea why they went with that name, but I’m sure they’ll explain it eventually.

Bronx was born 7 lbs., 11 oz., and was 20 1/2 inches long.
