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.

Trivia

After production of the third season wrapped, the producers had plans to send Hilton and Richie to Mexico for the fourth season. However, their plans had to be changed when Hilton publicly announced that she and Richie were no longer friends. Hilton asked the producers to replace Richie with her friend, Kimberly Stewart, but as Hilton and Richie were both under contract to do a fourth season together, Hilton's request was refused. The fourth season went ahead with an altered format. Instead of traveling together, each episode features Hilton and Richie separately playing "mother" to a different family, with the family then deciding which of them was better in the role.

A total surprise
4 December 2003 | by (Newmarket, NH USA) – See all my reviews

I've seen the first 2 episodes of this show and so far it's a real surprise. I never liked Road Rules, so I went into it a little apprehensive considering the two shows share some creative blood. Plus, the girls (especially Hilton) are really fun to look at.

I was expecting to see a show that made fun of the hillbilly family they're staying with, but the writers and editors have done an excellent job squashing that notion: the starts of the show are living with a "Real" family with morals and rules. The girls aren't used to living under those conditions and it's fun watching them make fools of themselves while trying to be California cool. Some classic moments already: Paris asks "What's a well for?" or "Do you know what generic means?" And the scene in episode 2 that shows Paris getting all dolled up for a night on the town only to go out to meet a group of local boys who don't seem impressed by her famous name - one asks: "So, your last name's Motel6?"

Definitely an amusing way to spend a half hour.
