The girls are asked to give up their money, credit cards, and cell phones to live what they call "The Simple Life." However, they later discover that things are not so simple once they arrive at a farm in Arkansas for the first season of the show. In the second installment to the show the girls travel from Florida to Beverly Hills and along the way they take numerous jobs in exchange for money. The third season of the show brings the girls to a bus where they travel in upper Manhattan and take on jobs as interns. Wives of America were quite alarmed when they heard that for the fourth season that the girls would be taken on the task of house wives/moms.

The 5th Instalment Couldn't Be More Scripted.
25 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I tuned in for the new 5th season, I was amazed. Not in how good the show was (not that it's ever been Emmy material) But how the creators/producers thought that people were so stupid. Clearly, it's scripted and set up. I was flipping through the channels and it came on one day and I looked and what seemed to be a giant snake on one of the campers bed. That snake CLEARLY came from the amazon. It was as long as the bed, it was huge. The other head camper man (I think his name is Hunter) tries to get it and he's so "freaked out" he can't. Oh! No. Here comes Paris, she single handedly put the what looked to be like a python into a big gray bucket and carry it away. I mean, Come on.

Another thing is the premier episode (which is the only one I watched all the way through.), Paris is talking with her mom and her mom say's "Oh it's Nicole's birthday, why don't you call her?" and then the camera switches to Nicole who see's her phone ringing and is like "It's Paris." And they make up on national TV. How cute and convenient that they both had cameras ready. Yeah OK. Plus I think the whole fight was a publicity stunt that got out of hand and they carried on. Then they made up just in time for the last season.

The first season was good and so was the second. The third started gettnig worse and the fourth wasn't that good at all and now the last of the "Simple Life" series can have it's last season be as scripted as a CW drama. A reality show? Not even close. Entertaining? Hmmm... Not really. Believable? Please. In the last words, there are much better things on TV to watch on a Sunday. I highly DON'T recommend this TV show.
