It took them ages to mend them friendship after that famously vague feud of 2005, and now Star magazine reports Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are at it again.

Feud 2.0 is all about the whirlwind relationship between Nicole’s future brother-in-law, Benji Madden, and Paris, a hookup that’s left Nicole fuming with her friend.

“Nicole has made it clear to Paris that she doesn’t like her seeing (Benji),” an insider told Star. “She thinks Paris is a total nightmare to be around and just wants her to go away. She isn’t happy about Paris once again crashing what is now her picture-perfect life.”

So why does Nicole suddenly see her BFF as a big burden? Allegedly it all goes back to Benji’s breakup with her other pal Sophie Monk. Sophie and Benji were engaged, but split up in February. While no one’s accusing Paris of stealing him away, Nicole doesn’t like the timing.

“She feels that Paris screwed Sophie over by coming on to Benji so quickly,” the source revealed to the magazine. “Her allegiance is definitely with Sophie — she doesn’t trust Paris one bit.”

Apparently Nicole’s plan is to wait it out and hope for, well, the worst. “Nicole is just hoping Paris’ relationship with Benji goes down the toilet as quickly as most of her other relationships have. She just wants to get on with her life without Paris.”

LiLo says no to mom’s reality show If Lindsay Lohan’s mom was banking on her big-name daughter to boost the ratings on her upcoming reality TV show, Dina’s due for disappointment. According to Life & Style, LiLo has no intention of making so much as a cameo on “Living Lohan.”

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. on the "Let's Be Cops," red carpet, Selena Gomez is immortalized in wax and more.

When asked about possibly participating in the E! program, which will focus largely on little sister Ali’s career dreams, Lindsay replied, “Uh-uh, no.” She even added, “I don’t know much about it.” Ouch.

But according to one source, Lindsay’s response isn’t as bad as it sounds — she’s just steering clear for the real stars. “The show isn’t about her,” a family insider told the magazine. “She totally supports her mom and her sister, but she’s on her own career path — Ali is just starting out.”

So, despite not appearing in it, or even really knowing about the show, the source assured Life & Style that Linds is onboard in her own way. “Lindsay does want to help in any way she can. She won’t be on the show, but that doesn’t mean she won’t come to the premiere or help publicize it.”

For his part, Lindsay’s outspoken pop thinks his daughter is making the right choice. “If she does decide to make an appearance on the show, then hey, I’m behind her,” Michael said. “But she needs to decide if she’s a serious actress or a reality TV personality.”

Dish on the fly In his online time, there’s one subject Colin Farrell can’t stop reading about. According to Showbiz Spy, the “Alexander” actor likes to search out the latest buzz about himself. “I’m ashamed to admit it but I was bored the other day and I looked up my name on Google.” But then Colin admitted, “Who am I kidding, I do it all the time!” … In a confession that might throw a wet blanket on some steamy fan fantasies, “Lost” star Matthew Fox told In Touch he’s just not the romantic type. “When it comes to romance, on a scale of one to 10, I’m somewhere at a three,” he admitted. Matthew told the magazine that he and his wife, Margherita Ronchi, aren’t “soft and mushy in that way.” … “The Hills” stars Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag have gone from frenemies to dueling designers, with both reality TV hotties releasing their own clothing line. It was only a matter of time before the first shot was fired. “Lauren's line is not necessarily something I would wear,” a catty Heidi told to Us Weekly. “She's trying a high-fashion thing, but it's a little overpriced.”
