Nicole Clone Protects Duff Sisters

Hilary and Haylie hobnobbed at Les Deux last night, armed with a mouthy mate who had an eerie resemblance to Nicole Richie.

Nicole's fiery clone barked at the swarm of photogs, constantly cursing as she helped the Duff girls and five friends clown-stuff themselves into an automobile.

Evil Nicole was in full-on freak-out mode, as she flipped off the cameras saying, "They can't publish any of this."
