Show Summary

The Simple Life is a totally unscripted series starring everyone's favorite spoiled socialites, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie!

The show's first 3 seasons were shown on FOX. But seasons 4 and 5 are now on E! with reruns of the first 3 seasons.

During the shows first season, Paris and Nicole got a reality check when they learned what it was really like to live among the middle-as they moved from their posh Beverly Hills pads to the small town of Altus, Arkansas (population 817) for a one-month stay.

Paris and Nicole were horribly inept at their jobs, which were the first they had ever had-including gigs at a dairy farm and a fast-food joint. But pretty soon they were up to their old tricks, picking up guys and causing mischief along the way, all in an effort to spice up the lives of their small town family and to win the hearts of the town's simple, kind-hearted residents. In the end, the girls survived the challenge, and most certainly served to prove that you can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl!

During The Simple Life 2: Road Trip the outrageous Hilton and Richie were again stripped of their cell phones, cash and credit cards and set off on a trip across country in their hot pink pick-up and air stream trailer. Departing from Miami Beach, FL, and ending up in Beverly Hills, CA, the girls had to navigate their way through a wild ride full of new jobs, host families, and small towns across the southern U.S.

Now, the girls are back once again and are ready for their next challenge in The Simple Life 3: Interns.(Nicole Richie's final season) This time around, the girls will travel throughout the Northeast United States via Greyhound bus while visiting families and taking on an assortment of odd jobs from zoo keeping to Burger King.They will intern at a job for two days, on the second day they will be graded on their behavior and performance, from an A to an F (The girls' average score) If they complete the job as directed they each receive $100.00 (the managers deduct sometime... They even get fired! The girls stay with families each week and usually contribute by cooking a home cooked meal or preparing a sexy birthday night! This season the girls are really put to the test!

Theme Song Lyrics

Let's take two girls, both filthy rich (Voice in the background: Hey isn't that Paris Hilton?) From the bright lights, Down to the sticks. From velvet ropes, To cattle pulls.(To workin' folks SL3) Let's take away their limousines, Their credit cards, and shoppin' sprees Well they're both spoilt rotten Will they cry when they hit bottom? Heaven knows who can survive This simple(Country, Road Trip, Intern, Living, Campers)kind of life (Paris: Where the hell are we?)moreless

IT is so funny i love their antics and the way they get on there language its just sooo funny yea it is probabaly scripted but hey they have funny writers. The shows 1st season was great the town was too uptight though. In season 2 it was so funny going round the place messing everything up HAHA.

In season 5 they where reunited too bad it was rubbish AHHHH But it still had funny parts! FUNNY SHOW WATCHmoreless
  • Why did I ever watch this?

    1.0
    I can't stand this show. It hurts me to watch it. There is no point and there is no sort of entertainment because of the fact that Paris Hilton is on this show. Maybe if Nicole Ritchie had someone else as a partner I would have liked this show a little bit better. Either way, it still would not have been a good show at any rate. The premise is very boring and the comedy is just entertaining enough for 3 or 4 minutes. Overall, this is a show for those that are fans of Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. Thank you.moreless
  • LMAO hahahah

    When i first saw this show i was like WTF!?!?!??! But as i watched it episode by episode it was so funny and always made me laugh, Paris & Nicole are obviously not country girsl, Watching them do real hard work for money and meeting totally different people was so funny, But the highlight of the show was definetly the jobs they had to do in order to get money, Every job they pretty much failed at and it was sooooo funny, This show always cheered me up in a weird way and i really enjoyed it, Although Series 1 - 3 were Awesome series 4-5 were not so good, Due to the Paris & Nicole Fall out, But overall i think it was an Awesome Fun Show!

  • The concept of the show seems so simple but Paris and Nicole makes it extraordinary!I can't imagine who else can ever portray such roles.It may be very mean but throughout the show you can see that there is kindness in their intentions.moreless

    I really love the show. I can't even seem to tell how much influential it is in my life... i kept remembering their words. I also love to say "loves it!" it makes me happy even my friends. Despite of my busy schedules, i can still even manage to finish 1 season in just day!. Because when you start to watch an episode you can't help but to watch the another one!!! and it completes my day... lot of fun!!! i would miss this!!! i hope Paris and Nicole could have another show together maybe somewhat different from simple life... something more interesting. The Simple Life will be forever in my heart! Loves it!!!^_^ "ilyn" from the Philippines... MABUHAY!moreless

    I miss the Simple Life. I love Paris and Nicole. It really showed you another side of them that you don't see in the tabloids. Paris is a lot funnier than I thought, but, Nicole is just weird. They shouldn't have ended it. Their was so much they could do. My favorite season was The Simple Life goes to camp. It was drop dead funny and I loved the relationship between the one camp counsler and Paris. And I loved every minute of Paris and Nicole with that old guy. It was so entertaining when they got lost in the woods. BRING IT BACK!moreless
