Socialite Kathy Hilton is urging her daughter PARIS to patch up her differences with former best pal and The Simple Life co-star Nicole Richie.

The two friends fell out in April (05) with Paris telling the press that Richie "knew what she'd done".

Paris then tried to have Richie replaced on the third season of The Simple Life, but the show's producers urged Paris to reconsider.

And now her own mother is doing the same.

She says, "I've known Nicole since she was two, she's like a daughter to me. I'm sure they'll patch things up and they both love each other.

"I think it's hard living in this spotlight, where every little thing is talked about."
