Paris Opens Up About She and Benji Taking a Break

Paris Hilton looked sophisticated last night as she left Mr. Chow's and headed to Villa with Nicky and David Katzenberg. When she went out Wednesday after announcing her split with Benji, apparently Paris wasn't acting like herself and seemed a little down while partying. You all are pretty split on whether Paris and Benji's relationship was a PR stunt the whole time, but she sounded sincere talking to Ryan Seacrest this morning about Benji, revealing they are just "taking a break." Here's more:

  • On Benji and the split: "Right now we are just taking a break. [. . .] I love him, he's such an amazing man. He's my best friend — he's been so great to me. We'll always be very close, we'll see what happens in the future. I'm still in love with him. [. . .] I think right now we are just better off as friends. We're both working so much. [. . .] This was a decision we made together as two adults."
  • On the Stavros pictures causing trouble: "That's ridiculous. [. . .] Someone must have gotten a quick camera phone picture of me smiling and saying hello to someone I hadn't seen in a year. [Benji's] not a jealous person and he knows I have no interest in [Stavros] whatsoever."
  • On whether she'll start dating again soon: "No, not at all. That's the last thing on my mind. I still obviously have feelings for Benji, I'll always love him. I don't want to date anyone, just the thought of that just grosses me out."

It doesn't sounds like the split has stopped Paris from gushing about Benji, so who knows if we will see these two back together before we know it. In the meantime, Paris has her sister to help her get over her broken heart.
