Paris and Nicole's simple make-up
09:30 14 July 2005
Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie may be forced to patch up their bitter feud - because they're contractually obliged to.
The stunning socialites, who used to be close friends, might be reunited on a fourth series of their reality TV show, 'The Simple Life', according to America's People magazine.
Sources claim a TV network has picked up an option on the duelling duo's contract for another season of the show.
According to reports, the next installment of the programme may focus on Paris and Nicole's upcoming nuptials - Paris to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis, Nicole to disc jockey Adam Goldstein - so the girls wouldn't need to spend much time together.
But it's also rumoured the show could focus on the pair reconciling.
The party girls have made no secret of the fact they no longer speak, although they have remained tight-lipped on why they fell out.
In April, Paris released a statement announcing she and Nicole were no longer friends and hinted her new best friend, Kimberly Stewart - daughter of rocker Rod - would be a perfect replacement for Nicole on 'The Simple Life'.
