Even in jail, Paris Hilton is staying slim -- she wouldn't touch her state-issued hot dog Tuesday night, but she might be getting some help coping with the slammer from none other than Brad Pitt.
Her Tuesday night dinner included a hot dog along with beans, mixed vegetables, some gelatin, and milk, but according to the New York Post, Paris just couldn't stomach the dog. Meanwhile, she could be passing the time with Brad Pitt, who's appearing on the small screen in "Troy" -- the current in-cell entertainment selection she can see through the door of her cell.
Still, the reality of life inside, by all accounts, is that she's pretty much on her own 23 out of 24 hours a day, except for visits, as TMZ told you yesterday, from her lawyer and shrink.

In a bizarre twist in the Anna Nicole Smith legal after-mess, a new report suggests that Debra Opri, Larry Birkhead's former lawyer, was all over Howard K.

Stern to console him, which appeared inappropriate, especially when she was trash-talking him before and after." As TMZ reported exclusively, Birkhead is suing Opri for allegedly defrauding him out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Though no criminal charges have been filed against the rapper, as the Poughkeepsie Journal reports, police have finally identified the teen, but would not release his name. The boy threw a black disc at Akon before the concert started, whereupon the rapper asked the boy to come onstage -- only to pick him up over his head and toss him back into the audience.
