I agree with Fiona and Jeff and all of you who feel that Paul's private life is his and his alone.
One thing that Paul's life has proved is that 'celebrities' do not have to be on the front pages if they do not seek to be. (look how he and Elizabeth managed to keep Ariel's illness a secret for so long)
What a tabloid makes of a candid photo is a different matter.
One thing I have always respected in Paul is that he has never 'used' the fight his family had (and is fighting through Jake) with AIDS as a crutch to support a career move. Not like so many stars who suddenly discover a cause when there is a new album/ movie/tour coming up.
Yes, I know that Paul has said that at least they draw attention to the cause - but IMHO it is akin to collateral damage...cynical and empty
So if Paul has found someone to laugh with and spend some good time with - that is his business and certainly not that of a 3rd rate journalist who probably had to move her lips when she read the original article in the National Enquirer that acompanied that photo.
I wish him long life and happiness....what more could anyone want.
