Resume Breathing: Paris and Benji Are “Taking a Break”

Stop crying, now: Paris Hilton has revealed that she’s just on a break with Benji Madden, and that they didn’t split for good. Paris told Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM that they’re “really good friends” and that they are “very close.” It sounds a bit complicated, especially for Paris:

“He’s such an amazing man,” she told Seacrest. “He’s my best friend. He’s been so great to me, so loyal. He is an incredible person, and we will always be really close. We’ll see what happens in the future.

“I’m still in love with him.”

Oh, yeah: and she’s so not into Stavros. I’m going to give this more time and see how it turns out. If we learned anything from Friends, it’s that taking a break can go wrong.
