The Simple Life reunion will air next Tuesday, followed by Wednesday finale.
Paris and Nicole are heading back to Arkansas, but not for another season of The Simple Life (at least not yet). Instead, they’re taping a reunion with the Leding family, where they’ll answer questions “from an audience of over 300 locals,” a press release says. The reunion will be hosted by Leeza Gibbons, who apparently excels at mediating encounters between socialites and small-town Arkansans who discovered on TV that, among other things, their milk had been watered down by the socialites in question. That one-hour reunion will air Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, with the finale of the series airing Wednesday at 8:30. During that episode, “Nicole loses her purse and her temper at a local club, so Janet tells the girls they must go and make amends.” Uh oh.
