Paris Finally Saves the African Kids?

3/21/2008 8:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Is it a Good Friday miracle? Did Paris actually make it to Africa to help save the children?

Ok, well, not quite: Paris was snapped in South Africa Thursday when she arrived with boytoy Benji Madden, whose band is playing in Johannesburg this weekend. Of course, this being Paris, the paps were ready and waiting once Hiltie popped out in public. You'll remember that Paris talked about spending time in Africa to help give back.

But let's not be too hard on P: She did make time to visit a children's home in Pretoria, and did some smiley-face with the kids.

Brangelina Gives Like There's No Tomorrow


Speaking of celeb humanitarians, it seems as though the Jolie-Pitts are in fact giving as good as they talk, shelling out more than $8 million – eight million big ones, folks – to their charitable foundation in 2006.

As FOX News reports, Brad gave $4.4 mil while Angie donated $4.1 mil to the Jolie Pitt Foundation in 2006, and just in that year, the Foundation poured out nearly $2.4 mil to various charities, including a mil a piece to Doctors Without Borders and to Global AIDS Alliance. What's more, they gave $137K to the Namibia Red Cross, possibly because they felt guilty about turning the country upside down for Shiloh's birth.

Party Favors: Fergie's Lady Lumps Do Not Include Baby Bump ... Tori Wants to Talk Va-jay-jay in "90210" Remake


Fergie is not pregnant. Repeat: Not pregnant. So says her fiance Josh Duhamel's rep to Usmagazine.com: "It's not true." ... Tori Spelling tells People she would "love" to be in the "90210" remake that the CW is developing. What would she play? "Maybe I could be one of the main character's young stepmom," says Tori. "Playing the funny sex ed teacher at the high school would be funny, too." Not as funny as we would find it.

The Jolie Pitt family is as beautiful inside as out. They are known to give a third of their income to charity and always have (plus save a third). They are so beyond the rest of Hollywood. Plus they donate themselves and their time to put faces on public needs. Fabulous. Think if all of them (and us) did this. The rest of Hollywood puts their money on their own backs. And this family gets criticized?

I better be careful saying anything about Paris, because her stalker Brian is watching my every word. Oh what the hell, she is a self-centered ahole. Congrads to Brad and Angie for really putting your money where your mouth is!

Who gives a rats butt what the holies-spitts do . Why don't they just go away - both adulterers - fine example for all those kids. Giving money to a charity doesn't make you a saint nor any closer to perfection that the next guy. It's all for attention which makes them no different than Paris who gives 'herself' for attention.. .

Hey Angie - if he cheated on Jen with you, who's he gonna cheat on you with (Maybe Miley in about 10 years, although, I doubt she would have his old @$$)? Once a cheater, always a cheater!

Being that she likes to be the center of attention, she needs to go help a tribe of African make their boners go away.

Their charitable "giving" is a tax "write off". So the real donation is from the ordinary tax payers who make up in our taxes what the rich deduct from their payments to the IRS in consideration of their "charity".

The charity of Jolie/Pitt is based on the desire to help, and ultimately on love. There is plenty of criticism to distribute in Hollywood, but there is no criticism for this. Clearly, once hearts begin to expand they just keep getting bigger.
