Paris Hilton Has 'Simple Life' Reunion With Nicole Richie, Talks Possibly Returning to Reality TV (Exclusive)
By Emily Krauser
A Simple Life reunion? That's hot!
It's been more than a decade since Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie wrought lovable havoc on their reality show, The Simple Life, but the former BFFs were back together once again at The Daily Front Row's 4th Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
The pair looked chummy as they chatted and laughed in the front row at the awards show. Hilton rocked a black Philipp Plein gown that featured a plunging neckline, thigh-high slit and belt, while Richie, 36, opted for a pretty floral, full-length pink Juicy Couture frock.
Both ladies presented during the show, with Hilton giving Plein the award for Fashion Rebel, while Richie honored her friend, Juicy Couture creative director Jamie Mizrahi, with the Best Design Debut award.
Richie, 36, attended the show with her husband, Joel Madden, and posted a series of photos from the star-studded evening to Instagram afterwards.
"Congratulations @sweetbabyjamie you ⭐️. I think honoring you might be my favorite sport," the mom of two captioned the pics. "You light up my life & the racks of department stores all around the world. I'm your biggest fan. Sign my t**s."
Sadly, neither blonde beauty shared photos with each other, but on the red carpet, Hilton did tell ET's Keltie Knight that she hasn't ruled out a return to reality TV, especially when it comes to filming life with her fiance, Chris Zylka.
"We've been getting a lot of offers to do that, so right now, I'm just deciding if I want to do that or not. But maybe," she revealed.
The hotel heiress also admitted that she knows reality TV can be tough on a relationship. "I've done it for a long time. It'd be new for him because he's never done something like that. He's more of an actor," she said of Zylka.
The Simple Life ran from 2003 through 2007, though this isn't the first time the co-stars have run into each other in public. Back in June 2011, Hilton and Richie looked just as stoked to see each other at the I 'Heart' Ronson Bowling Party in Hollywood.
Though this reunion has made us dream of a Simple Life reboot, that dream may not come true -- at least not with Hilton's involvement. Last month, the bride-to-be told ET that she's been approached about doing another season, but it's not a priority.
"I feel like I had so much fun doing it, but I’m focusing on all my businesses and really wouldn’t have time to go over to a farm again and do that," she explained. "But it was so much fun and it’s such a hilarious show. I still watch it. It’s fun that everyone’s enjoying it and it’d be amazing for it to come back."
She also confirmed that Richie will be invited to her upcoming wedding with Zylka. "All my girls will be invited. Right now, we’re just picking out the dress and the location," she dished, adding that Britney Spears is also on the guest list. "There’s so much to plan so I just can’t wait. It’s a really exciting time for everyone."
Now if we can only make that Simple Life revival happen anyway...
