Celebrites Are Just Like John le Carre Characters!

LA.COMfidential notices that both Lohan and Hilton are smoking out moles in their entourages via a technique which will be familiar to lovers of espionage fiction:

Is it just us or is Lindsay Lohan morphing into Paris Hilton? Not only has she lightened her hair and dieted off her curvy figure, but Lindsay is talking a lot like Paris as well. According to Page Six, Lindsay told Teen Vogue this month:

I recently ended a close friendship because of stuff that was getting out. Sometimes, I’ll tell people in my life something completely out of this world-that could never be true-and then I’ll see it in the tabloids. That’s how you find out who you can trust.

In February, Paris said almost the same thing to Jane magazine:

I test out friends sometimes…I’ll say something that’s totally not true, ’cause I think they’re calling Page Six every night. I’ll say something like ‘I was in Paris last week.’ And if that story appears, I’ll just freeze them out. I’ll never call them. I’ll never talk to them.
