Paris Hilton Reminisces About Nicole Richie, Simple Life - and Shopping at CostCo
Paris Hilton in the house, people! The socialite, TV star and mogul, 32, dropped by Us Weekly's New York City headquarters earlier this week to talk up her latest projects -- hot new single "Good Time" with AfroJack and Lil Wayne, plus a burgeoning new career as a DJ, with gigs around the world -- and, of course, to gossip! Gabbing with Us' Senior Editor Bradley Jacobs for a very special edition of Hot Stuff, the "Stars Are Blind" singer quickly got nostalgic for her days as a young reality star with pal Nicole Richie on The Simple Life.
Rehashing Fury costars Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf's no-cell-phones allowed camping trip/bonding excursion, Hilton reminisced about her own time roughing it with fellow Hollywood kid Richie, 32. "Nicole and I had our cell phones taken away, we had to fend for ourselves," she recalls. "Kinda reminds me of that. That's one way [for Pitt and LaBeouf] to get into character!"

The businesswoman also gushed to Us about one of Tinseltown's newest couples, Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough -- introduced by none other than Julianne Hough, Dobrev's BFF and Derek's sister. "They make a cute couple," Hilton says. "It's always nice when you're introduced by a sibling."
The most surprising revelation from Ms. Hilton? Her Costco memories! As Jacobs explained the phenom of Costco-loving celebs -- from Bruce Willis to Bethenny Frankel to Jimmy Kimmel (who found his wedding ring through the wholesaler's website!) -- the multimillionaire heiress admitted that she's a fan, too.
"I actually have a lot of memories of Costco," the fashioninsta says. "It's a fun store to go to!"
