Kim Kardashian first got her taste of the spotlight when she starred alongside Paris Hilton in a few episodes of The Simple Life. She worked as her stylist and part-time closet organizer. Hilton and Kardashian even hung out, outside of work. They'd attend all the hot spots in L.A where they knew the press would be. "We would simply stand around talking and by the next day, it would be in the paper." The act was crucial for Kardashian's success, especially when she started her own reality tv show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Kim Kardashian has remained friends with the hotel heiress since the early 2000's. Through the ups and downs of their relationship, the reality star never forgot their friendship. Kardashian especially was fond of the wisdom Hilton imparted to her about being in the public eye. The mother of four recalled what Hilton had said to her, "we were sitting in her SLR Mercedes… and at that point, the paparazzi would lay on the ground to try and get a picture of you, up your dress, and she said, ‘OK. We need to make sure you don’t give them that." From that day forth, Kardashian learned how to stay clear of unflattering shots.

Most people wouldn't believe that Kardashian and Hilton have been friends for a total of 16 years. Kim Kardashian loves their friendship so much, that she admitted her willingness to do anything for Hilton. During an episode with Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the mother of four told her sister, Khloe, "I would really do anything for her, she literarily gave me a career." Koko credited her sister for being a better human being than most, who wouldn't even take the time to pay homage to their former bosses. If most people had a boss like Paris Hilton throwing shade at them every chance she got, then no, they wouldn't credit her for jump starting their careers.

When it comes throwing shade, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian have certainly had their turn at throwing major disses at one another. Back in the day, the two tv personalities went from friends to enemies. Hiltons most famous diss to Kardashian, read as, "Her butt is disgusting! It looks like cottage cheese stuffed in a trash bag." In turn, Kim Kardashian threw some shade of her own, but in an oddly mature way. During an interview, she revealed that "her and Hilton weren't as close as friends as she thought and that's why they were no longer in contact with one another." At least Kardashian knows how to be the bigger person in the relationship!

Kim Kardashian is such a great friend to Paris Hilton that she even posted throwback photos on her instagram account of the two's trip to Australia back in December 2006 to January 2007. It was done as a tribute to Hilton's 39th birthday last month. Kardashian posted a photo of the two braving through a mob of paps and cameras, while another showed the the women posing with their stylish, giant metallic Louis Vuitton bags. Hilton probably appreciated the gesture just as much as fans did. Still, Kim Kardashian deserves a better crew of friends than Hilton.
