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.

Great and Entertaining!
6 December 2006 | by akrokatSee all my reviews

I actually love this show! you may hear some negativity about the show, "you have the same IQ as Paris if u watch this"(a common comment), they are wrong. their stupidity is what makes the show! i cannot wait for new episodes! i will say, this show is not for young children. it is more for the older audience.

if you haven't seen the show before, basically, Paris and Nicole get jobs and tasks to do in different states...they pretty much goof off all the time and do what they please(things that would get any normal person fired from their job- or even arrested)...

you may think there would be boredom after so many episodes, but don't think that! Each season has its own flare to it. I wont ruin it, so you will just have to wait it to find out!
