The Simple Life Reunion
Leeza asks Paris and Nicole if they loved being in Altus. Paris and Nicole say that it's a cute town. Leeza awkwardly segues into an introduction of a clip package about a time when Paris and Nicole wanted to leave. In the clips, Paris keeps whining that she wants to leave, and Nicole says that they're being treated like children. Braxton asks the girls if they're leaving, and whether they'll be coming back. Wow, that was fascinating. Leeza asks whether the girls really thought about leaving. Nicole says that they're shooting film all the time, and that no one's life is perfect all the time, and that they missed their families. Leeza says that the stricter parent was definitely Albert. Nicole says she understands where Albert were coming from, but that she and Paris are adults, and hadn't had strict rules in a long time. ["In the sense of 'ever.'" -- Wing Chun] Paris adds that Albert never had daughters. Leeza says that girls are a whole different story, and Janet agrees. Leeza says that she has both sons and a daughter, and "you worry about the girls." Yeah, because who cares if your son knocks someone up? Thanks for that enlightened view of gender differences, Leeza. Janet says that she worried about the girls all the time. Albert agrees.
Leeza says that you felt that the Ledings worried out of love, and she asks what they wanted for the girls. Albert says that they wanted to teach Nicole and Paris the Ledings' values and their sense of family. Leeza asks if the girls took anything away from that. Paris and Nicole nod. Leeza asks what they took, specifically. Nicole says that her parents are divorced, so she had a very different household than the Ledings', and she admires how three generations of the family live together under one roof. Nicole tells about how, when the curfew was discussed, Justin told her that his parents wait up for them. Is that so unusual? My parents (well, my mom) always waited up for me, at least when I was in high school. Nicole immediately wondered how to lie and sneak out, and Justin says that he doesn't. Nicole concludes that they're honest with each other, and she admires that. Paris says that her parents are still together, and that she really loves how close the Ledings are.
