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 ...

The Simple Life is just the 2 Stooges for the Y Generation.
4 June 2005 | by (Springfield, VA USA) – See all my reviews

Nearly every review of the Simple Life misses its essence -- its a staged show. ALL reality shows are in fact staged, with a script. The "reality" part is a bit of improv. allowance, and the illusion that its really happening.

The Simple Life is just as staged as the Lucy show in that generation. Most of the jokes are already written. All the bits, even down to Nicole's purse getting stolen, are staged. If the girls did some of this stuff in real life, they know they would at least get a misdemeanor offense. Instead, a little town is signed up to play along with the jokes and pretend.

The moral condemnation of Paris and Nicole, as spoiled rich girls with low IQs, is just what the producers want adults to think. Any kid with a brain knows they are just goofing off, and its no more real than the Three Stooges. Relax, folks, the stealing and lying and screw ups are all jokes.
