Day or night, regardless of the scandal, a well-oiled Elliot has some embellished statement on hand that simultaneously denies Paris’ involvement in anything even remotely related to the scandal (in her entire life) while painting Paris as the modern day Virgin Mary.

Scandal: Brian Quintana, some unknown party planner slapped Paris Hilton with a restraining order after she threatened him because he told Stavros Niarchos that Miss Paris has herpes. Quintana also says
Statement: Elliot Mintz denied Quintana's allegations, telling Court TV: "She doesn't have herpes. She doesn't have a drug problem," and claiming Quintana was simply trying to humiliate his client in order to gain media attention.

Verdict: Lies or denial?
Scandal: Photographers capture pics of the inside of Paris Hilton’s purse exposing what was possibly a bag of really cheap, seedy weed and a glass vial containing white powder.
Statement: "Things are not always as they appear. It would be unfair to draw any conclusions based solely on these photos."

Scandal: Paris, Britney, Lindsay blah blah blah
Statement: Elliot says, "What I've observed is that we have three extraordinarily powerful women who generate a tremendous amount of attention, money and adulation and they're tired of other people trying to ride on their coattails and creating false drama."
