Paris Hilton's mom isn't losing any sleep over her daughters split from her most recent boytoy boyfriend Doug Reinhardt.

"I think Paris needs to be with someone who is a bit more mature, older and has their own thing," Kathy Hilton told us last night at the L.A. Lakers and AEG party at Club Nokia L.A. Live.

And Mama Hilton isn't the only member of the hotel heiress' clan dissin' the 23-year-old Dougster...

"The stories out there about our family not approving of their relationship are completely true," Paris' aunt, Kyle Richards, said. "Doug was riding Paris' coattails."

Richards continued, "The break-up affected me in a good way. It's definitely time for Paris to move on."

Doug, per his rep, declined to comment.

So what kind of guy should Ms. Paris be dating?

"He has to be a very strong, intelligent man who can handle being with her," Richards said. "He'll have to walk in her shadow, and it's very hard to find someone who is comfortable in that role."
