Despite attempting to clarify himself once already, Brad Pitt again tried to quiet the PR storm he created with his apparent diss of Jennifer Aniston in Parade.

In a sitdown with Matt Lauer on Today, the Moneyball star addressed the controversy arising from the interview in which he - intentionally or not - made Jen out to look like a dull bore he was pretending to be happy with.

What did he have to say for himself this morning?

"I've been told about the reaction," he said. "I don't know what was pieced together or put together. All I know is that my point was, the best thing I'd done as a father is be sure my children have a good mother."

"That's all I was, or am, trying to say. It has no reference to the past."

"And I think it's a shame that I can't say something nice about Angie without Jen being drug into it. You know, she just doesn't deserve it."

They also have absolutely no interest in having their personal life serve as public fodder, which has been the case for about 10 years running.

Josh Rendon and Ebony Jackson of MTV's 16 and Pregnant fame were paid a visit by authorities and Child Protective Services in Arkansas this week.

The visitors weren't impressed with what they saw.

Rendon and Jackson, now 20 and married, were arrested late Tuesday night for child endangerment and were also booked on various drug charges.

Two-year-old Jocelyn was removed from their care by child services when the duo were arrested on child endangerment and drug-related charges.

The bust went down when narcotics officers and agents from the Little Rock Air Force Base Office of Special Investigation showed up to execute a warrant at the couple's home on the base. Drugs aren't all they reportedly found.

For a notoriously private guy, Brad Pitt surprisingly opened up a can of worms with his comments about his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston in Parade magazine.

Remarks the actress and her camp are said to have "gone ballistic" over.

Regardless of the Moneyball star's intentions, saying he wasn't leading an interesting or fulfilling life pre-Angelina Jolie, and that he was "trying to pretend my marriage was something that it wasn't" reated a PR firestorm.

Jen Aniston: Blindsided By Brad!

How did the former Mrs. Pitt react? "She was annoyed," a pal close to the Horrible Bosses star says. "She thought that it was rude and inappropriate."

Team Aniston angrily reached out to Pitt's representatives, according to Us Weekly, and "They got his team involved and Brad was read the riot act."

Within 24 hours, Pitt had surprisingly released a statement clarifying and lamenting the pretend marriage comment while praising his former spouse.

Jen "is an incredibly giving, loving and hilarious woman," Brad swears.

Still, the Pitt source says, despite his claims that it was all spun wrong, "no one believes his words were taken out of context - he said what he said."

Why say that in any context? Yhough Pitt is clearly happy with Angelina Jolie and their kids, "We think he's jealous [Jen's] in love," the source says.

Following a day of headlines over the remarks, Bennett has come out and said:

"I am sorry if my statement suggested anything other than an expression of my love for my country, my hope for humanity and my desire for peace throughout the world. Nobody loves America more than I do."

Fernando Flores really needs to give it up.

Britney Spears' former bodyguard is still suing her, insisting he was sexually harassed by the singer, who he claims “deliberately and recklessly” fed her sons shellfish despite known allergies, landing them in the hospital.

Seriously, dude wants $10 million for this.

“Despite the fact that Spears, Plaintiff and the children’s nanny all knew they had serious, even life threatening food allergies to seafood, Spears deliberately and recklessly fed her children, Preston and Jayden, crabmeat,” Flores wrote in legal papers.

“When both boys started vomiting, Spears explicitly prevented Plaintiff and the children’s nanny from seeking medical care for the two children.”

When Fernando Flores admonished Spears after the incident, which he claims took place sometime last year, she said: “Mind your own f**king business!”

Tony Bennett appeared on Howard Stern's radio show yesterday to promote his new album, Duets II.

But the talk turned to 9/11 after the iconic singer said he met President George W. Bush, who told him personally that going into Iraq was a "mistake." Stern wondered whether America had a choice, which promoted Bennett to respond:

"But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don't make a right... They flew the plane in, but we caused it because we were bombing them and they told us to stop."

Watch the exchange now:

Following yet another arrest, Matt Hardy is headed to rehab.

The professional wrestler, who was booked on suspicion of DUI last month, was actually led back to the police last week after his girlfriend, Reby Sky, called 911 because she was concerned Hardy "was strung out on pills."

Authorities subsequently obtained a search warrant for Hardy's house and found prescription painkillers in a safe, along with 20 vials of anabolic steroids and some ecstasy. Hardy turned himself in on Monday, posted bail and then released the following video, which says he's embarking on a three-month rehab program paid for by the WWE:

UPDATE: Reby says she was coerced by police into turning her boyfriend in, telling TMZ she "would never do anything to put [Matt] in a compromising position with the law."

As if the investigation into the death of Rebecca Zahau and Max Shacknai weren't strange enough, Jonah Shacknai himself wants to see it reopened.

In a letter sent by Shacknai to the attorney general Monday, the billionaire pharmaceutical CEO wrote that further investigation would be beneficial.

Seeking to bring "clarity, dignity, and ultimately closure to the devastating deaths" of his girlfriend and son, he asked that the investigation proceed.

"The circumstances of Rebecca's suicide were so unusual and upsetting that it was difficult to accept the hard facts that were presented," he went on to write.

"I pray that Max and Rebecca are now at peace and I hope you might be able to help the rest of us ... finally achieve some peace and closure."

Rebecca’s naked body was found hanging from the balcony of Shacknai's Coronado, Calif., mansion on July 13, only two days after his son, Max, 6, was found unconscious at the base of the stairs. Max later died from his injuries.

50 Cent employs violent criminals who wail on women ... according to a lawsuit.

A suit against the rapper alleges he hired Dwayne McKenzie (for reasons and purposes unknown) who invited some women over to Cent's mansion in Connecticut ... where, supposedl,y McKenzie made "graphic and vulgar sexual requests" of one gal.

The plaintiff, Vasti Ortiz, became uncomfortable and started to leave. 

Fiddy Loves New Moon

50 is involved in more weird legal drama than anyone but Lindsay.

She claims that's when McKenzie ordered another woman to start beating on her while he held her down ... badly hurting her. Pretty messed up stuff if so.

Ortiz claims 50 knew or should've known McKenzie was a known thug with a criminal past. But since 50 wasn't even there at the time, good luck with that.

Taylor Armstrong reportedly pocketed $125,000 for selling photos of herself in the hospital, as the result of an alleged beating at the fists of Russell Armstrong, to Entertainment Tonight.

But as shady as that move may be, an attorney for Taylor's late husband has made an even more startling accusation: Ronald Richards says the pictures are a hoax.

Richards says Taylor's black eye may be real, but it was NOT caused by his client. Instead, the lawyer cites plastic surgery as a possible basis for the marks.

"If Mr. Armstrong was the cause of those injuries he would have been arrested and prosecuted," Richards tells TMZ, highlighting the fact that Taylor never filed a police report.
