Paris and Nicole will each be on The Simple Life 4

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie have both been confirmed for The Simple Life 4, even though they’re not speaking to each other.

Reports that FOX would shoot the series as two separate parts seem plausible, as FOX’s Peter Liguori confirmed that the two aren’t talking to each other. According to the AP, he told TV critics that they’ll figure out what to do “when we sit down, come up with a concept and talk to them. Both have been picked up, both will be ready for work, and we’ll work with it.”

Liguori also said that Kimberly Stewart, daughter of Rod, won’t be a part, as Paris has suggested in the past.
