Many assumed the 2000s reality TV show was headed for a reboot when a Twitter account for “The Simple Life” started tweeting.
The account only followed three others: Lohan, Hilton and Netflix.
As TV Line pointed out, the account did have a verified check mark when it was tweeting, but it doesn’t anymore.
One tweet, which had a redhead emoji and blonde emoji, made fans think Lohan would star in the show. The Twitter account seemed to confirm that assumption with additional emojis, tweets and photos.
“Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer,” one tweet said, alongside a photo of Hilton and Lohan when they were both blonde (and close friends).
Hilton chimed in on Tuesday via Twitter to say the rumors weren’t true.
“FYI, Someone has made a fake fan account & invented this
#TheSimpleLife rumor,” she wrote. “There is no truth to it.”
“Yes, I love that show & I was approached again to do it,” she went on. “But I had to say no as I have an extremely busy work schedule traveling the world running my empire.”
Lohan would’ve replaced Hilton’s former best friend and co-star, Nicole Richie. The original show followed around the two wealthy socialites as they toured America and worked various jobs.
The “Freaky Friday” actress and the hotel heiress have a rocky history themselves. Hilton called out Lohan on Andy Cohen’s show, “Watch What Happens Live,” in May, saying that the actress is “beyond... lame and embarrassing.” And last year, Hilton referred to Lohan as a “pathological liar.”
This story has been updated with Hilton’s tweet.
