Paris Hilton is breaking up with a boyfriend and reuniting with a best friend.
After hitting a rough patch with her boyfriend of one year, Cy Waits, Paris finally decided to call it quits.
"Cy is a good guy," she tells me. "We've been friends for years and always will be. I just need some time alone to focus on myself. We speak all the time. I have nothing but great things to say about him."
After confirming her split on George Lopez's show last night, she hit a party and hung with none other than Nicole Richie...
The former besties both attended the I Heart Ronson bowling bash at the Spare Room in Hollywood last night.
Paris attended with sister Nicky Hilton and hugged it out with Nicole, who was hanging with Samantha Ronson.
"They were really happy to see each other and looked like they had a lot to catch up on," says an eyewitness at the bash, where guests sipped Svedka Clementine.
Not so happy was Cy, who found out that his relationship was ending on TV with the rest of America (or at least those who watch Lopez).
"They had discussed it before and Paris told him if she was asked about their status, she was going to tell the truth," a source close to the former couple tells me. "She got uncomfortable on George Lopez when he kept making fun of Cy on the show. She felt bad and tried to have the producers cut the segment out of the show, but they wouldn't."
The reality star is planning to take some for reflection while single. "She has a lot of respect for Cy," the insider continues. "He was always there for her when she needed him. She feels bad for ending the relationship, but she felt that she needs time to reevaulate her life."
Don't we all?
