Nicole Richie Opens Up About Paris Hilton's Role in Her 'Simple Life' These Days

What is the riddle of the Sphinx? Why did Amelia Earhart's plane crash? And are Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton still friends? I want answers, and I want them now. Luckily, Nicole Richie's interview with Marie Claire Mexico tells us just what every The Simple Life fan wants to know. Forget your awesome fashion line, funny tweets, and cute kids, Nicole — we are ALL EARS about the Hollywood friendship that turned into a four-year TV show that killed souls and brain cells alike. But in the best way.

Hmm... different cultures is usually how you would describe foreign countries. International travel. Unconquered caves in the Amazon. Not Wal-Mart. But that's okay, you have to find out how other people in America live, right?

Reality at its finest... couldn't have said it better myself. They put the Real Housewives to shame. So what's the reality of Richie's relationship with Hilton now?

Ice cold, Richie! Her answer is basically a big ol' talk to the hand and three snaps in a Z formation. Their show ran from 2003 to 2007, and they started fighting while the show was still on. In 2006, however, they reportedly called a truce. The cause of their infamous fight? Richie reportedly showed Hilton's sex tape at a party, and things escalated from there. Richie is a successful fashion designer now, and Hilton is a self-made billionaire, so neither did too shabbily — but we'll always have those sweet friendship memories, right?
