They both rose to fame on their reality show The Simple Life, but are Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton still friends? The short answer is, surprisingly…yes! Although the former BFFs seem to have fallen out of touch since Nicole started a family, the fashion designer admitted on Watch What Happens Live! that she still considers the socialite a pal.
“Paris is somebody that’s been in my life since day one,” she explained. “I haven’t spoken to her in a while, technically, but if you really want to get into it, my view of a friendship is somebody that you don’t necessarily have to talk to every day. It’s somebody that you call when you need them and they’re just going to be there.”
Throughout the interview, the new VH1 star had nothing but positive things to say about her former bestie. “I haven’t spoken to her in a while, but we are very good friends and I love her, love her family, and have a lot of respect for her,” she elaborated.
So, now that she’s a pretty well respected career woman…does the 32-year-old have any regrets about her reality TV past? “The Simple Life was the most fun time of my life,” she gushed. “I was 20 and I had a television network, which was Fox, come up to me and say, ‘Do you want to take a trip for 28 days and get paid for it?’ and I was like, ‘Okay!’ It was great. I mean, it was backpacking, it was with your best friend and you got paid for it. It was fun. It was so much fun.”
Things are obviously okay between Nicole and Paris, but what about their other party pal Lindsay Lohan. “Haven’t spoken to her in a while,” the #CandidlyNicole star said, simply, of her current relationship with the actress.
Well, that’s that!
