"Bridget Jones's Diary" question

The other day I was watching "Bridget Jones's Diary" and something got my attention.
In one part she is broken hearted and she picks up her diary, crosses out the words "Bridget Jones' Diary" and writes "The Diary of Bridget Jones".
My question is, is there a difference between saying "Bridget Jones's Diary" and "The Diary of Bridget Jones"? because I thought there wasn't any :S
