Paris to end Richie feud
16:30 28 July 2005
Ex-best friends Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will end their bitter feud, according to Paris's sister, Nicky.
21-year-old Nicky is convinced it is only a matter of time before the two 'Simple Life' stars patch things up.
She told America's Maxim magazine: "I don't get involved. Paris is my sister, and Nicole's like a sister to me.
"They'll be friends again - and they still love each other."
Earlier this month, it was revealed Paris and Nicole may be forced to make amends because they are contractually obliged to.
The stunning socialites, who used to be close friends, might be reunited on a fourth series of their hit reality TV show, 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 instalment of the programme may focus on Paris and Nicole's upcoming nuptials - Paris to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis and Nicole to DJ Adam Goldstein - so the girls wouldn't need to spend much time together.
But it is 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 perfect replacement for Nicole on 'The Simple Life'.
