    "Goes to Camp" is 100% staged.

    1. "Camp Shawnee" doesn't exist. It was filmed at Camp JCA Shalom in Malibu and if you look at the staff page on the website, ( http://www.campjcashalom.com/aboutus/year_round_staff.php ) Ed and Dawn Bellante the supposed owners of the camp are not mentioned. In fact, their names aren't anywhere on the website!

    2. Hunter Cross is a former model turned actor when he "got the acting bug and moved to L.A. in January" and then almost instantly "he got the chance to be a counselor on The Simple Life". Source: http://www.eonline.com/gossip/planetgossip/detail/index.jsp?uuid=a5d2b4b5-d745-46a0-af58-8c05c77079cb

    So so far, we have a fake camp with fake owners and counsellors and the "relationship" between Hunter and Paris is also probably a set-up.

    3. Hunter told the Herald-Mail about his "mutual attraction" with Paris Hilton during "five weeks of shooting." But the paper says "he does not know whether he will see her once her current legal problems are resolved." In other words, since they're not in contact any more, that romance was probably faked, too. Source: http://www.herald-mail.com/?module=displaystory&story_id=166612&format=html

    PLUS, they had a trailer where they got their hair/make-up done and the "campers" were auditioned for, even if they aren't actors, the producers chose who would get to "go to camp". Source: http://juliahavey.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/03/does_malibus_ca.html

    Oh, and "'Til Death Do Us Part" was also fake, or at least the last episode was.

    Look at this screenshot taken from one of the last shots of Paris in "The Confrontation". Note her hair, the fur NOT being around her neck and the lack of what appears to be a photo in front of the lamp of the far left.

    Then look at this screenshot which allegedly took place EXACTLY where season four ended at almost EXACTLY the same angle as the previous screenshot. Her hair has changed. The fur is around her neck AND there is a photo in front of the lamp on the far left. PLUS Reba has appeared out of nowhere and the kitchen looks completely different.

    PLUS, a user pointed out in a post on the E! forum ( http://boards.eonline.com/Insider/Boards/thread.jspa?threadID=51981&tstart=0 ), Nicole arrived in "The Confrontation" with Foxxy Cleopatra and Honey Child, but was shown in the season five premier leaving the Siegals's without them.

    lol thank you so much. I was thinking that the whole time I was watching the first ep since the first part was obviously staged and that lover thing looks totally fake. I couldn't google any info about it just some season 2 crap etc so thx for all this info.

    Ya it's obviously faked, but it's enjoyable to watch! I think of it more like a entertainment show than a reality show!

    And in the first episode of Season 5 at the end it came up:
    Portions of the opening sequence of Paris and Nicole's reconciliation are recreated for dramatic purposes

    I'd never have guessed

    The first scene in the coffee shop of season 4 was definately scripted. But I'll still watch it. It's halarious.

    There is no reality show on television that is 100% reality. Many shows have hired actors, scripts, and staged finalies. They need ratings and will do whatever they have to in order to get them.

    yeh its pretty obvious. Paris even admitted that her relationship with chops in the first season was scripted. But its good because its funny. The only season i didnt really like was season 4. The strength of the show is Nicole and Paris relationship.

    Who cares if it's fake? So is Laguna Beach and people call that a reality show...

    I'll still watch it because Paris & Nicole are hilarious. Plus Hunter is really cute!
