rumors abound that Paris is dumping Nicole Richie for The Simple Life 4.
Earlier this week, TVgasm reported on rumors that Paris is dumping Nicole for The Simple Life 4. While it’s kind of hard to care since the show is so staged and lame, and since Paris has pulled this crap before, here’s the story. This week, “reports have surfaced that in the new season of the show, targeted to begin production in late spring-early summer, Richie might be replaced,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Apparently, “both Hilton and Richie are under deals to appear in at least five seasons of the show, but their options for the upcoming installment have yet to be picked up.” The Insider reported yesterday that “the show’s producers are considering Kimberly Stewart, daughter of singer Rod Stewart, as a potential replacement for Richie.” Paris told E!, “I love the show and I just want to freshen it up and make it funner, and bring new things in. Its gonna be a big surprise. And everyone is going to be very excited and happy about it.”
