Paris Calling

Last night my Simple Life cherry was popped. Yes, I actually sat down and watched the biggest trainwreck in television history. What's sad is that it actually made crap like the Anna Nicole Smith show and that whole Geraldo/Al Capone vault fiasco look like masterpieces.

Its obvious that Paris and Nicole have absolutely no idea how those of us in the real world function. But really, why should we expect them to? They've got famous parents and more money than you could shake a stick at. They have absolutely no reason for knowing how people earn a living, live within their means, have responsibilities, carry on meaningful relationships...and that's just sad.

But I don't feel sorry for them. No, I feel sorry for the family they're staying with. And the town they're in. These seem like nice, honest people. They didn't deserve this.

I do still think Paris is hot. I'm sorry...its true. Nicole though? Not at all attractive.

I love and hate those shows. On the one hand, it reminds me of how low we've sunk as a society. On the other, it makes me feel so incredibly well-adjusted. And that's some feat!

I'm still a simple life virgin, but I've been meaning to loose it. I think I'll have to get drunk first. ;)

What's really freaky is that Nicole looks just like my high school best friend Eliza. EXACTLY. Every time I see a commercial I do a double-take.

I think the two of them are exaggerating just how little they know about the rest of the world...I mean, they don't know what Walmart is? I'm sorry, but they look like the kinda girls who watch some TV...and you can't exactly miss Walmart commercials. It's a little ridiculous.

But Paris is hot, I agree with you. A little on the bony side, but hot.

they are both waste-of-makeup retards.

have you seen her sex tape? shes more worried about her phone calls and how she looks in the camera. LOL.

but it must be nice to get paid to be clueless.

Thank god we don't have this show here. Yet. From what I've heard, it's must-miss TV.

& yes, Paris is hot.

Paris doesn't have any meat on her! She would be hot is she had more meat on her.

nicky isn't hot.. because... she's boring.

i mean paris is the slutty one. the slutty ones are always the most fun.

The other side of that is, if they weren't such morons the ratings wouldn't be so high. People watch the socially inept to see just how bad it can get. Plus it gives us someone to legitimately resent for their status in life :) And I wonder how much of that they were told to go overboard on. How much of it is scripted?

That show is a joke, putting it nicely. They didn't even know what Wal-Mart was. Sad. I think Paris looks like a bird or something. *shrugs*

I haven't watched it yet, I have watched Rich Girls and it was hard not to gag.

I will admit, Paris is a hottie. : )

Stupid people are always entertaining. It's an undisputable fact. Heh.

That show is definitely a *joke*... BUT, my interest in now piqued. LOL Now that I have no Survivor to watch for awhile... I may take a peek at Simple Life to see what the buzz is about.

I am on the fence as far as Paris goes. She just doesn't look real to me. She looks like she is made of the same plastic that Barbie dolls are made of. As for Nicole, she really thinks she is something, but I am afraid someone lied to her.

I watched that show two days ago and just wanted to take the two of them for pets. They're just so helpless.

Seriously, though, I wish *I* didn't know what Wal*Mart was.

It's ironic that Paris Hilton and that other girl should be mentioned in the same genre' as a cherry popping.

I don't get why people think Paris is hot- despite how gangly-ass skinny she is, she's also friggin' ORANGE!!!!! You'd think with her kind of money she'd have the best tan money could buy- instead she's some color straight out of a Crayola box. Uck.
