The Simple Life Gets Cancelled
Usmagazine.com has confirmed that Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton’s reality series The Simple Life will not be picked up next season by the E! network. A source at E! told Us that overexposure is to blame for the show's cancellation. "We felt like the real life drama of their lives overshadowed anything happening on the show. Viewers would see Paris all day long on the news about her going to jail, so they didn't care about seeing her camping with kids. It just was too played out,” according to a source. The source adds that Richie became increasingly difficult to work with last season. "Paris carried the show. She was the one willing to do anything. Nicole was the diva." According to The Insider, the show could get a second chance at life if another network decides to pick up the series (the show's first season debuted on the Fox network before later being picked up by E!). On Friday, Nicole was sentenced to four days in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence, her second DUI conviction since 2003. Paris served 23 days in jail last June for violating her probation on a reckless driving conviction.
