“Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer,” read one tweet from the show’s official account, which was accompanied by a throwback photo of the presumed co-stars (seen above). Another tweet included photos of the women’s old-school bedazzled flip phones, while a third was simply of two female emojis — one blonde and one redhead. (Important note: Though this Simple Life account does not currently appear to be verified, it boasted a checkmark when the aforementioned tweets were posted. Click here for proof.)
The Simple Life, which aired on Fox (2003–2005) and E! (2006–2007) for a combined total of five seasons, followed Hilton and Nicole Richie as they journeyed into America’s heartland to experience (and arguably destroy) the lives of everyday folk. Tuesday’s posts made no mention of Richie, however, leading fans to assume that Lohan would serve as her replacement.
And Lohan is no stranger to reality television. Earlier this year, MTV debuted Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, which chronicled the management and growth of Lohan Beach Club Mykonos. Unfortunately, the club is now permanently closed, eliminating the need for a second season.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, as Hilton tweeted on Tuesday evening, it looks like we can all put our hopes to bed.
