Remember back in the day when Paris Hilton was the most talked-about celebrity of them all?
Man, how times have changed …
Many, many years ago, you couldn’t look at a tabloid or a gossip site without hearing all about Paris and her shenanigans.
Everyone watched The Simple Life, everyone used her "that’s hot" catchphrase, and believe it or not, there were quite a few people who looked up to her.
But at a certain point, a little over ten years ago or so, all that began to change.
And that was because Kim Kardashian hit the scene hard.
If you know your Kardashian history, you know that back in Paris’ heyday, she and Kim were very close. Kim tagged along to many of Paris’ events, and she even worked for her for a while.
It was common to see paparazzi photos featuring Paris with Kim there in the background, but when Kim’s sex tape was leaked, things began to change.
A few months after that, Kim got her own show, and she started becoming the more popular one, because let’s be real, there’s only so many reality stars the average person can care about at any given time.
So after that, Kim didn’t need to work for Paris anymore, and she didn’t need her by her side to get attention.
At some point during Kim’s big rise to reality show glory, they had a falling out, and they’ve been enemies for years.
Like, their friendship was so dead that Paris once compared Kim’s ass to "cottage cheese inside a big trash bag." The bad blood ran deep.
In 2014, they posed for a photo together, and many of us thought it was a sign that they’d made up, but in 2015, Paris was back to making shady quotes about Kim in interviews, so it was pretty hard to tell what was going on between them.
Last week, photos from Kanye’s latest fashion campaign were released, and in some of the photos, Paris was featured looking pretty much exactly like Kim.
Kim shared some of the photos on Instagram with the hashtag "forever the OG," and Paris shared them as well, writing that it was "so much fun being a #KimClone."
It certainly seems like their friendship is back on track now, right?
And according to a new report, that may be because Paris is looking to gain a little something from a renewed friendship with the Kardashian family.
"Paris really wants to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians as a regular, or even as a friend role," a source close to the family claims.
"Kim and Kris feel bad for her and are considering offering her a contract to appear on the next season."
That sounds absolutely amazing, doesn’t it? Just imagine: Paris back where she belongs, on reality television, being her gloriously ridiculous self.
It’s also a little sad if they’re offering her a contract out of pity — but it does sound like Paris is cool with it.
As the source says, "Paris thinks that they only have what they have because of her and has made this crystal clear to Kris."
We’d argue that they "have what they have" because of Kim’s sex tape, and also because of the late Robert Kardashian’s O.J. Simpson connection, but Paris probably did help a bit.
On a bit of a happier note, the insider adds that "Paris and Kim are tight again in the sense that Paris has been kissing her butt lately."
"The two of them have made amends for talking so much sh-t about each other. Paris even invited the whole family to her upcoming wedding."
All’s well that ends well, we suppose.
And if it ends in Paris Hilton herself bringing her special brand of nonsense to Keeping Up with the Kardashians?
