Renee revealed that she had been in Paris at the time, and was lucky enough to get a flight out of the city today:
After luckily being able to fly out of Paris this morning, my heart is with everyone in Paris. Vive la France. ???

Brie and Nikki were also in the city, taking their grandmother on a surprise birthday trip. Both have posted photos from the night prior, reflecting on the tragedy:
Last night I was enjoying the beautiful history and art in Paris at The Louvre. It saddens me how quickly something so beautiful can turn ugly. It breaks my heart in a million pieces to the victims of the terror attacks. You can feel the sadness here, but also the unity of the world. I was reminded so quickly how far world peace is…. but standing in the City of Love I know in the end love will prevail. ????
Photo taken just an hour before the attacks happened. Here I stare at the Winged Victory of Samothrace. We all must stand united as one. I saw a City come together to protect one another. I thank the French people for our safety last night. They gave everyone amazing hospitality and protection and it didn't matter your race, religion or nationality. I will stand by France. I will pray for them. I will pray for peace. I pray that one day we all can live in this world together as one. But until that day I will stay fearless. Love. ????

Brie, Nikki, their mother Kathy Colace and their grandmother have since left Paris, according to an update from Kathy’s fiance, John Laurinaitis:
