The subtle war between People and Us Weekly just got a bit more ridiculous. It's no secret that People often gets the most coveted celeb interviews and breaking news-- from Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's divorce to pictures of Brad and Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh-- even if it is amid criticism that the magazine panders to celeb publicists. And it seems that Us has finally had enough of playing second fiddle. Its cover story a few months ago on Angelina Jolie's "double life" was taken by many as payback to Jolie for playing favorites with People. And now it seems that Us Weekly has pledged a "Paris-free" issue the week after the "celebutante" was freed from her short prison sentence. Is it coincidence that People got the exclusive print celeb tabloid interview with Paris for its next issue? Probably not.
