Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Sort of a bizarro-world Beverly Hillbillies, the Fox reality show The Simple Life follows the adventures of hotel heiress-turned-reluctant porn star Paris Hilton and her best pal Nicole "Lionel's Daughter" Richie as they're plucked from their posh L.A. lives and thrown into small-town America. The first season saw the girls living with a family on a farm and had them getting fired from jobs ranging from fast-food cooks to dairy farmhands. After the show's initial success, the producers decided to send the ladies on the road for season two. Loaded into an RV, the sophomore outing of The Simple Life found Paris and Nicole traveling from Miami to Beverly Hills, stopping along the way for another batch of common-folk jobs.
