Former best friends Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie begin filming the fourth season of The Simple Life on Tuesday. PEOPLE takes a look at the ladies’ plans, plus other events to watch for in the coming week:

TUESDAY, NOV. 1: They don’t have a network for their show and they’re not speaking to each other, but that’s not stopping Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie from filming another season of The Simple Life. The win-win part for the former best friends: Even if no network picks up their show (which is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television), Paris and Nicole are guaranteed money because their options were renewed earlier this year. The hotel heiress is optimistic that viewers will get to see the fourth season: “All of them are fighting over it,” she says of the networks “vying” for their show. Stay tuned

Also, keep an eye out for people in Darth Vader costumes lined up outside your local Virgin Megastore: The Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith DVD goes on sale Tuesday. Now, die-hard fans will get to relive Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) going over to the dark side and Padmé (Natalie Portman) getting betrayed by her man as Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) fights to keep the Force alive.

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 2: The That ’70s Show crew will be back for their eighth season of the FOX show – minus star Topher Grace, who has left the series with his character heading off to Africa. That leaves us with Hyde (Danny Masterson), who’s dealing with his breakup with Jackie (Mila Kunis), and Kelso (Ashton Kutcher, in his final season) dealing with being a dad. The one-hour premiere debuts at 8 p.m. ET.

THURSDAY, NOV. 3: Desperate HousewivesEva Longoria will be a presenter at the sixth Annual Latin Grammy Awards, which will air live on the Univision Network from L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium. Marc Anthony is vying for best male pop vocal album of the year for Amar Sin Mentiras and best salsa album for Valio La Pena, while reggaeton star Daddy Yankee is nominated for best urban music album. The show starts at 8 p.m. ET.
