Sometimes the best solution is the one closest to home: Despite dating some of the world's biggest socialites and magnates, Paris Hilton's now kicking it, officially, with Benji Madden, twin bro of Joel (aka Paris BFF Nicole Richie's babydaddy).

The two have been spotted at various hotspots across the country, but a source confirmed to People Tuesday that the two are dating, and "it's pretty serious." Given that Paris and Benji have already shopped together, lunched together and generally been all over town together, will their newfound bond bring the girls together again for a Simple Life rehash (dating edition)?

Not a chance. Despite keeping the dating all in the family, Paris is striking out on her own with a new reality show, ostensibly to find her a new BFF. Ouch! - Anna Dimond
