Paris and Nicole

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie have finally reconciled after a year long feud and it only took a threat of putting them on a deserted island with a bunch of survivalists to do it. That was producer Jon Murray’s idea for the final season of The Simple Life if the two continued their war.

The two went public with their seemingly reconciled relationship Sunday, arriving together at Dan Tana’s Steakhouse in Los Angeles. After dinner, they text-messaged while waiting for their car on a bench in front of the restaurant. At one point, they looked at each other and smiled when an unseen observer said, “I always knew you’d be friends again, Paris.”

Not even a reunion between Mel Gibson and Danny Glover could top this. Look at these two lovebirds. They’re like the odd couple of their generation. One’s a defensive anorexic and the other is a flagrant tramp, but the one thread that ties them together is their uselessness.
