Many people were first introduced to Kim Kardashian when she was Paris Hilton’s closet-organizing bestie during “The Simple Life” days. In a recent interview with Yahoo! Style, Hilton was asked whether she feels it’s fair to say that she paved the way for the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star.
“We’ve known each other since we were little girls. We’ve always been friends,” Hilton answers. “It’s nice to inspire people. I’m really proud of her and what she’s done.”
Hilton still keeps up with the Kardashians, and with Kim’s husband Kanye West and daughter North too. “They’re so cute together,” Hilton says. “They’re the perfect couple. She’s always wanted to have a family, so I’m really happy for her.”
