We all love a little nostalgia… especially when it reunites talented artists with their beautiful muse!
Marlon Wayans and Paris Hilton were among the celebrities that participated in Tubi and TikTok’s live nostalgia reunion special on Wednesday, June 30. The event was filled with fun and laughs as some young TikTok stars tested their ’90s and ’00s knowledge while Marlon, Paris, Fran Drescher, Joey Lawrence, and Lacey Chabert judged their lack of it and reminisced about the things that made those eras so great.
However, the most interesting revelation came after the video cameras were off and Paris posed for an Instagram picture with Marlon. The 48-year-old comedian thanked the icon for being the inspiration behind his classic 2004 film, “White Chicks.”
Marlon Thanks Paris
Wayans seemed really appreciative of his muse and thankful that she has a good sense of humor.
“The original “white chick” and I…,” Marlon wrote on social media, “funny story one day my brother @therealdjsw1 calls me at 3am saying ‘marlon we should play white chicks’… i replied ‘n—a, you high?'”
“The next day he showed me a magazine with @parishilton and her sister on the cover and said we should play gurls like this. I immediately got it. They were so big and was the gateway to pop culture send up. We did that film in good spirit to celebrate a special time in all of our lives. So thank you paris and Nikki for being muses. Love ya. When we do #whitechicks2 ‘let’s go shopping’ 🛍.”
Remembering The Good Ole Days
The Tubi event was hosted by TikTok creator Brittany Broski, who forced Wayans to explain to the young TikTok stars what a car phone was and asked Paris to talk about her nostalgic fashion choices. Broski pulled up a throwback picture of Paris’ iconic pink tracksuit and asked her to explain.
“I love track suits, I still do. It’s been my uniform of 2020,” the gorgious fashion icon said. “I was always ahead of my time, even on the sweatsuits and tracksuits.”
Pretty In Pink
Speaking of pink, Paris wore a gorgeous dress in the color that she made famous over a decade ago. She paired the luminescent pink gown with a pair of Valentino pumps.
The other celebs and Paris were happy to celebrate their iconic shows finding a new life on Tubi, Fox’s free streaming service. Hilton’s reality show, “The Simple Life,” and Drescher’s show, “The Nanny,” are just a few examples of all the nostalgic content the service has to offer.
We are going to binge “The Simple Life” again and walk around saying Hilton’s classic line, “That’s hot!”
