I SEE LONDON, I SEE FRANCE ...
Does Paris wear any underpants? Paris, as in Paris Hilton. Hilton, as in the vast fortunes of THE Hilton Hotels. We're talking beaucoup buck$, as in mansions and Porshes and servants.
In case you have not had a gossip column fix in a while, you may not have learned that Paris Hilton is the latest sweet young thang to have her homemade sex videos made public. (Kinda like that other ingenue, Pamela Anderson.) I give you this vital info up front in order to appreciate what Little Paris is up to now.
Paris, and her good friend Nicole Richie (daughter of Lionel Richie), for whatever reasons, are starring in a reality TV show called THE SIMPLE LIFE. The poor little fabulously rich girls are transplanted, via private jet, to an actual farm in Arkansas! (Did Clinton dream this up?) They will spend 30 days down on the farm with actual cows and bugs and Arkansans, and ... get this! ... no one will be waiting on them! No siree bubba! In fact, they'll have to WORK!
Mind you, I would have not known this show existed if it had not been for Linda Stasi of the NY POST. Linda highly recommends this show because, as she so succinctly explains (as a writer I'm pea-green with envy), "Chairman Mao couldn't have come up with a more compelling indictment of the rich. I felt like moving to Cuba after watching it."
So last night Dog Man and I watched Paris and Nicole try to start a pickup truck. Try to drive the pickup truck. Meet their host farming family (with teenaged son:). Buying pickled pigs feet. Run away in terror from a fly. And that was just DAY 1.
Check it OUT! Watch how many times Paris's hip-hugger jeans dip so low that the camera has to blur the area. (Let's face it, they're not really jeans, they're chaps.)
Tuesday nights 8:30 Fox Channel; check your local listings for other nights
