Scoop! Caught in the act: Paris and Travis

Not surprisingly, Paris Hilton’s word means nothing.

Just a few days after denying that she was hooked up with recently separated “Meet the Barkers” star Travis Barker, the reality-show star-turned-“singer” was caught on film making out with him at the nightclub Marquee in Manhattan. (Check out TMZ.com and see for yourself. Will Paris ever learn to avoid video cameras?)

“They like each other,” Hilton’s rep told People magazine. “Paris really likes him. Beyond that, I cannot comment.”

Former Blink 182 drummer Barker filed for divorce from his wife, Shanna Moakler, in August. Needless to say, Moakler is none too pleased with her estranged husband’s new fling.

“In order to maintain a positive atmosphere for my children, I’ve decided not to exacerbate the situation by commenting on each new aspect of Travis Barker’s personal life,” Moakler said.

Of course, just because Hilton, who a month ago made a very public vow of celibacy, is with Barker now, doesn’t mean she’ll be with him for long. Hilton was spotted on a date with Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong last week. The week before that she was cozying up with sleazy oil heir Brandon Davis.

Nicole: ‘I look OK,’ then disappears into thin air

Speaking of “Simple Life” stars, wafer-thin Nicole Richie continues to live in denial about her weight.

The walking skeleton claims that she is just “naturally a thin person,” blaming her sickly weight loss on stress.

“I think I look OK,” Richie said on “The Tyra Banks Show.” “I definitely wouldn’t mind gaining a few more pounds at all.”

Lionel Richie’s daughter then once again went on the defensive and denied having an eating disorder.

“I am not anorexic. I am not bulimic,” Richie said. “I do not have an eating disorder.”

We’re more likely to believe Paris Hilton’s celibacy vow than Richie’s eating disorder denial.

How insane do you have to be to be ‘the crazy Baldwin’?

Stephen Baldwin, the creepiest of all the Baldwin brothers, says he is praying for Tom Cruise’s soul.

The born-again Christian, who hasn’t made a decent movie since 1995’s “The Usual Suspects,” thinks the Church of Scientology’s most famous face needs saving.

“On the Hollywood list of people I pray for often, Tom Cruise is probably No. 1,” Baldwin told Radar Online.

The holier-than-thou actor is making the PR rounds for his book, “The Unusual Suspect: My Calling to theNew Hardcore Movement of Faith,” but when asked by Radar Online to name the Ten Commandments, Baldwin only came up with six! Plus, he couldn’t even name the seven deadly sins.

Didn’t the guy see “Se7en”?!?

Mission: Impossible — The TomKat wedding

Speaking of Cruise, the TomKat PR machine keeps chugging along.

First, there was the Vanity Fair photo spread, proving the existence of baby Suri. Then, Cruise and fiancée Katie Holmes went to the Washington Redskins game with Cruise’s new business partner Dan Snyder. Now, details about the couple’s impending wedding are being “leaked” to the press.

“All I really know is that the wedding is soon. They will surprise us all,” Holmes’ friend Andrea Bernholtz, president of the Rock & Republic fashion line, told Us Weekly.

Apparently, Bernholtz doesn’t realize that nothing about TomKat surprises us. Also, when a couple that’s been engaged for 15 months gets married, it’s not shocking.
