Neither feuds, nor tudes, ludes, dudes, or prudes will keep Paris Hilton, 24, AND Nicole Richie, 23, from The Simple Life. Both have been signed to a fourth season of their fish-out-of-water reality show wherein the pampered progenies encounter the little people and attempt to interact with them without causing a rift in the time-space continuum.
FoxTV made the announcement yesterday, which contradicts what petulant Paris has been puffing since April when she announced, “It’s no big secret that Nicole and I are no longer friends. I will not go into the details of what happened. All I will say is that Nicole knows what she did and that’s all I am ever going to say about it.”
Hilton reportedly tried to convince Fox to recruit Rod Stewart’s daughter Kimberly Stewart to costar with her on The Simple Life 4. “You know, I’ve had three great seasons,” Hilton said in April. “I love the show, and I just want to freshen it up and make it funnier and bring new things in. It’s going to be a big surprise. And everyone is going to be very excited and happy about it.”
The survey says, WRONG PARIS. Fox Entertainment President Peter Liguori told reporters The Simple Life’s producers would figure out what direction the show would take “when we sit down, come up with a concept and talk to them.”
Liguori also said that “to [his] knowledge” the blondes, both now engaged, had not reconsiled their differences. “Both have been picked up, both will be ready for work, and we’ll work with it,” he said. He also suggested that “given the fact that both Paris and Nicole are engaged and about to be married… there’s got to be something in that world” the show can explore.
Hilton is engaged to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis — Paris and Paris — and Richie is betrothed to Adam ‘DJ AM’ Goldstein.
