"The Simple Life" is not being rebooted, Paris Hilton has confirmed.
The Internet was abuzz on Tuesday, June 26, when the programme's official Twitter account dropped some hints by following just three accounts, those belonging to Lindsay Lohan, Paris and Netflix, and tweeting out two girl emojis, one blonde and one red head, and a photograph of Lindsay and Paris with the caption "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer", followed by a wink face emoji.
The hashtag "#SimpleLife6" also began trending.
The tease led fans to believe that the reality show, which starred wealthy best friends Paris and Nicole Richie as they tried a variety of jobs such as cleaning rooms and mucking out farm animals, was coming back on the streaming service after a 12-year absence with Lindsay taking Nicole's place.
However, Paris has now logged on to her Twitter account to share the disappointing news that 'The Simple Life' isn't coming back and claimed the Twitter handle that created the excitement was a "fake fan account".
