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.

People take things WAY too seriously
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is all-around just fun. It's not meant to be some great television show, nor some extremely real reality show. It's just what it is.

I find it very funny to see grown people getting mad at this show and then making fun of Paris and Nicole for being stupid and spoiled. Because what those adults don't seem to understand is that the entire SHOW is making fun of Paris and Nicole being stupid and spoiled. Paris and Nicole are also BOTH making fun of themselves being stupid and spoiled. They have a good sense of humor about themselves and their public image, so they were making fun of it with this show. That was kind of the entire point.

I find it absolutely ridiculous that grown adults still have that mentality of "NO! I'M ALLOWED TO MAKE FUN OF YOU BUT WHEN YOU JOIN IN AND START LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IT'S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE." Grow up, people. Stop taking everything so goddamn seriously.

The show is absolutely hilarious if you take it for what it is and just admire the girls for having a sense of humor about who they are. People just need to take a step down off of their OWN blue collar thrones and stop thinking that Paris and Nicole are beneath them simply because they're always in the spotlight. It's not a crime to be silly. In fact, it's BETTER not to take yourself too seriously. After all, what fun is life if you're acting like every single second needs to be spent with a serious look on your face?

This show is great at what it does. It's just a shame that some people are extremely prejudiced against the two girls.
