Storyline

Hotel Heiress Paris Hilton, and notorious party girl Nicole Richie drop their money and pick up some working gear in this one of a kind reality series. 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. It was also known by now that Paris and Nicole hated each other and were no longer friends. In the final and fifth season, Paris and Nicole made up and were also Camp Councilors for the ...

User Reviews

A scathing commentary on the upper-class brats of society
12 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this show were fiction, it would be considered a satire. But this is ALL REAL! These girls are really this spoiled and really this conceited! I'm not a big fan of most reality shows. As a matter of fact, besides "Last Comic Standing" and "America's Next Top Model," this is the only reality show I've ever watched. And for some good reason. The show has an interesting premise. I'm sure all of us dreamt of watching rich people be forced to deal with the rigors of working-class life. It's the perfect venegance! Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie are living proof that the chances are 90 percent that a rich person wouldn't last one second living the simple life. Personally, it would be a dream for me to live in a small, quiet town where there's very little crime and everyone's friendly to one another. This is not exactly San Quentin we're talking about! But you'd be surprised how agonizing it could be for a spoiled rich daughter to have to endure life without a credit card. In the show, the father of the family would make the girls do simple chores like feeding the chickens, and they would treat him like he was some Nazi general. What's wrong with exercising a little discipline? What's wrong with having RULES in a house? Did Paris and Nicole's parents set ANY ground rules for them growing up? The kicker for me was finding out that Paris and Nicole never had JOBS! I mean, in one episode they're actually struggling to work at Sonic. Can you find an easier job than working at a fast food joint in the middle of Arkansas? I'm under the impression that the girls didn't have to face any responsibility growing up, which is pretty tragic. The show also proves how uneducated these girls are. In an episode where the family is playing Trivial Pursuit, the girls are able to answer every question having to do with fashion in a snap. Yet when they were asked who's the Secretary of State, they were totally clueless! I was also angered by the fact that just because the inhabitants of this small town are quiet and reserved, the girls acted like these people have problems and are all stuck-up. I wanted to stand up and cheer during the episode where the girls create an uproar at a local bar, and its female owner scolds them, saying that she doesn't care who they are--they have no business destroying her bar like that. Then you hear the people in the bar scream things like "Go home, rich b**ch." Took the words right out of my mouth. I'm not going to lie that one of the things that lured me into the show was getting the chance to watch these two hot girls prance around in skimpy outfits. But once I was lured in, I was repulsed after finding out how selfish and spoiled these two brats really are. My one minor disappointment about the show was the last episode in which everyone in the town was interviewed and said that despite the girls' lewd behavior, they really caught a liking to them. The whole time watching those interviews I kept wondering, "How much money are these people getting paid to say this stuff?" "The Simple Life 3" should have Paris and Nicole living in the ghetto. You know damn well people aren't going to be nice to them there, no matter how famous they are. And to finish off my review, I love that "Miss Hilton" song they play during every show. All in all, this is a great commentary on the upper-class, proving how cruel it is that the rich are getting richer. (8 out of 10)
