Janet Leding: “There was a line that Paris wouldn’t cross”; reunion airs tonight.
The Simple Life concludes tomorrow night, but first there’s a one-hour reunion tonight at 8 p.m. ET. Paris and Nicole returned to Altus to tape it in front of a live audience of the people they mocked relentlessly, who will ask the socialites questions. For the finale, the Leding family trekked to New York to subject themselves to the press. During an interview, Janet revealed that, unbelievably, “There was a line that Paris wouldn’t cross.” What line could that be? Is the line even in our hemisphere? Janet says, “Paris would attend Mass with us and she was concerned about what she had on. She was covered.”
