"Simple" on Life Support?

Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton

Things are getting complicated on The Simple Life.

An apparent rift between stars Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie has seemingly jeopardized the future of the Fox reality show.

Things are so bad between the longtime celebutante pals that, according to several published reports, producers are considering replacing Richie with another party-circuit regular, Rod Stewart's daughter Kimberly. Hilton herself hinted that big changes are indeed coming on The Simple Life. "You know, I've had three great seasons [on the Simple Life]," Hilton told E! News Wednesday night at Us Weekly's Young Hot Hollywood Style Awards in Los Angeles. Hilton and Kimberly Stewart arrived at the party arm in arm. "I love the show, and I just want to freshen it up and make it funner and bring new things in," she said. "It's going to be a big surprise. And everyone is going to be very excited and happy about it."

With Hilton reportedly ready to be paired off with a new Simple Life lady, Richie would, per The Insider, get her own reality spinoff, a Newlyweds-esque endeavor focusing on her life with soon-to-be hubby Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM.

Richie was at the Us Weekly party Wednesday but declined to talk to reporters. Her publicist refused comment on Thursday.

And Fox suits aren't saying anything about the possible Simple Life shake-up--yet. However, the network issued a statement alluding to potential changes on the show. "We are currently discussing internally the creative direction of the next season of The Simple Life," the network said Thursday. "We are huge fans of both Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie and look forward to solidifying our plans for the next installment of this fantastic franchise in the very near future."

Reports have been swirling since last summer that Hilton and Richie were on the outs following some off-camera meltdowns while shooting the second season of The Simple Life. (E! Online's Party Girl detailed one incident from a September 2004 Maxim party in L.A. where Richie and her crew picked up the "Reserved for Simple Life" sign propped on her table, threw it on the floor, then stomped on it.)

Hilton and Richie publicly downplayed any animosity, though, eventually signing on to do the currently airing third season of their fish-out-of-water hijinks, The Simple Life: Interns. While they both arrived separately and didn't speak to each other at the Us Weekly party Wednesday, Hilton was diplomatic when asked if their Simple Life together was kaput, telling USA Today, "Nicole is engaged and working like a dog."

Interns debuted with the series' best-ever ratings--13.3 million viewers. Although those numbers have steadily declined in recent weeks, the show averages a still healthy 10.2 million on Wednesdays opposite ABC's new hit, Lost.

Paris: Nicole Knows What She Did

E! online

by Charlie Amter

Paris Hilton apparently has one simple rule for being her best friend: Don't cross her.

That's the message the Simple Life star seems to be sending via a statement released Wednesday regarding her old pal and soon-to-be former Life sidekick, Nicole Richie. "It's no big secret that Nicole and I are no longer friends," Hilton said. "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."

E! News reported last week that the former pals are so on the outs that Hilton is trying to convince Fox suits to recruit Kimberly Stewart to costar with her on The Simple Life 4.

Stewart, rocker Rod Stewart's daughter and a fixture on the L.A. party circuit, showed up arm-in-arm with Hilton to an Us Weekly event last Wednesday and dropped big hints about the impending Simple Life shakeup.

"We've known each other since we were in our moms' tummies," Hilton told E! at the party. "When you're with your friend you've known your whole life, you totally trust them. We just act like sisters...we have fun."

When asked about her rift with Richie, the hotel heiress was diplomatic. "You know, I've had three great seasons [on the Simple Life]," Hilton said. "I love the show, and I just want to freshen it up and make it funnier and bring new things in," she said. "It's going to be a big surprise. And everyone is going to be very excited and happy about it."

With Hilton reportedly ready to be paired off with a new Simple Life lady, Richie would, per reports, get her own reality spinoff, a Newlyweds-esque endeavor focusing on her life with soon-to-be hubby Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM. Richie was also at the Us Weekly party Wednesday, supporting her fianc

I was getting bored during the apprentice and turned this on last night...I think Nicole is hysterical and without her the show will be nothing. She makes this show. She's better off without Paris.

True, Nicole is way funnier than Paris. Paris always looks like she's dazed, zoned out, high on something or just plain bored.....

I agree, without Nicole this show is nothing. Nicole is the one that does all the crazy things that keep us all watching. She's not afraid to say or do anything. She's the only reason to watch!

Here is the rumor I heard don't know how accurate this is but apparently the two girls had not been getting along for quite some time and when Paris was hosting SNL Nicole threw a little screening party together and instead of putting on the tape of SNL she popped in "One night in paris" instead. LOL I think its hysterical but apparently Paris didn't think so. But who knows how credible that info is.

:oops: Ok when it was first released on the internet the 2 minute and 30 second version I watched it. I have not seen the actual video but if what I saw is any indication of how the whole video is I have no intrest in seeing the rest.

I will try without being too crude because it was pretty graphic. First off it was in the dark and she looked cracked out. It was mostly of her performing a certain act on him. When they were doing the deed she maybe she was too high or something but she didn't seem too into it. It was really quite boring.

LOL well she always does seem dazed and bored (drugs maybe?) so it doesn't surprise me that she'd be that way while having sex too!! :lol: Did they show any close ups?

Took this from an Associated Press interview.

During a recent interview, Hilton's trendy SoHo hotel room had the frenzied atmosphere of a children's play area. A plate with scrambled egg remnants lingered on an end table. Makeup bags doubled as a throw pillows on the couch. Bottles of vitamins fought for space on a cluttered coffee table. Two smiley publicists leered from the bedroom while a makeup artist prepared his palette and a hairdresser prodded the top of Hilton's head, installing her latest set of hair extensions.

With her infamous Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, half-awake in her lap, Hilton rested in the eye of the storm, unfazed by a barrage of silly questions and the yanking of her new locks. Other than refusing to utter Backstreet Boy and ex-beau Nick Carter's name, Hilton purred freely about her sex tape, her falling out with "Simple Life" cohort Nicole Richie, her naughty "House of Wax" scenes and her death. Her most shocking revelation: Hilton wants a simpler life.

AP: So how would you describe your occupation?

Hilton: I don't know. I'm an actress, a brand, a businesswoman. I'm all kinds of stuff.

AP: If you had to pick just one...

Hilton: An actress.

AP: So all of this

AP: Why are you so popular?

Hilton: I don't know, because of who I am. I'm not like anybody else. I'm like an American princess.

:rofl :roll:

I will admit I skimmed through that interview because I felt like I was losing brain cells rapidly but this question caught my eye...if she didn't have the last name Hilton she would be a nobody she would be like any regular american girl living a normal 23 year old life in suburbia somewhere.
