icole Richie, The 32-year-old fashion designer appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happened Live Tuesday, where she was asked about the state of her relationship with Hilton, her former reality co-star and childhood BFF.

"Paris is somebody that's been in my life since day one. I haven't spoken to her in a while technically, but if you really want to get into it, my view of a friendship is somebody that you don't necessarily have to talk to every day, somebody that you can call when you need them and they're just going to be there. An idea of a true friend is somebody that's going to be there with you through and through," Richie said of Hilton, who wasn't invited to her 2010 wedding to Joel Madden. "The short answer is I haven't spoken to her in awhile, but we are very good friends and I love her and love her family and have a lot of respect for her."
