According to our insider, the two reality stars have “always considered each other to be rivals from way back,” but are “virtually neighbors” so it’s no surprise they would “join forces” eventually.

Though they were always in a secret competition, Jess did stick up for Kim back in 2013! "I felt for Kim -- I knew exactly what she was going through," Simpson told Us Weekly. "I send a lot of love her way, and I know she'll come back with a bang."

No good deed goes unnoticed with Kim, who definitely took Jess’ kind words to heart. Our source said that “when Jessica defended Kim for her pregnancy shape, Kim sent her an enormous bunch of flowers and the two have since stayed in contact.”
