LONDON: Just months ago it seemed the only place they would bury the hatchet would be in each others' backs.
But Kim Kardashian has finally made up with her rival and former best friend Paris Hilton after they shared a touching heart-to-heart at the Cannes International Film Festival, reported the Daily Mail on Sunday.
They have been feuding ever since the former rose from the lowly role of the socialite's token best friend to the top of the reality television tree.
But the 31-year-olds are friends again after they had a deep conversation together and put aside their differences.
The moment, which would have brought tears to a glass eye, happened when they met at the amfAR gala Thursday at the Hotel do Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes.
According to the New York Post, witnesses were amazed to see them all smiles during their chance meeting.
A witness said the intelligent duo 'hugged, smiled and chatted for a while.'
And an insider said the bad blood between the pair is finally water under the bridge.
The source said: 'They really have no problem with each other; it has been a long time.'
It is Simple Life personality Paris the world has to thank for Kim's rise to fame.
She was an unknown when the hotel heiress introduced her to the socialite scene.
However she later came to regret the move, as she was overshadowed by Kim after her infamous sex tape with former boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007, with pornography company Vivid buying the rights to the video for $1m.
It was particularly galling for Paris, as a similar film featuring her had been leaked in 2003, briefly making her one of the world's most notorious celebrities.
