A “Simple Life” reboot starring Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan is not in the works, multiple sources confirmed to Page Six.
“This is news to her team,” Lohan’s rep told us.
Fans began speculating online that a spin-off starring Hilton, 38, and Lohan, 32, was coming soon because the show’s Twitter account began suspiciously tweeting Tuesday.
Hilton starred in the original series alongside Nicole Richie from 2003 to 2007.
The account, which is not verified but has more than 13.5k followers due to its previous verification status, first sent out a tweet at 1:50 p.m. ET with photos of bedazzled phone cases.
It then shared two female emojis — one with blond hair, one with red hair — and a photo of Hilton and Lohan with the caption, “keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.”
“What does this mean?!! Are we getting a revision of the simple life starring these two?” one fan tweeted. Another added, “PLS SAY THIS IS NOT A JOKE.”
The account only follows the heiress, “Mean Girls” star, and Netflix U.S. on Twitter, but a source close to the streaming service told Page Six, “There’s no truth to this.”
Hilton’s rep and Fox, the network that originally aired the series, could not immediately be reached for comment.
Page Six recently announced that Lohan’s first reality show, “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club,” would not be resuming for a second season on MTV.
Instead, the actress is focused on her music career, signing a record deal with Tommy Mottola’s Casablanca Records.
Aside from focusing on other business ventures, a reality show may also not be plausible because Lohan and Hilton have been in a decades-long public feud.
The “Best Friend’s Ass” singer most recently called Lohan “lame” and “embarrassing” in May. Lohan’s rep said in response that the hotel heiress is “desperate” for attention.
