I had seen the show "The Simple Life" several times before on the television, but I hadn't ever the chance to actually sit down to watch it. I recently read Paris Hiltons book, Confessions of an Heiress, and it inspired me to watch her shows.

This is certainly one of the most hilarious shows in the world as its 2 young women who laugh their way through... silly(?) experiences and try their "best" to get things done. I love these girls! They live life the way they want to, and the way I feel most people should... They are real women who make me smile and laugh! I Highly recommend watching these with friends so you all can laugh about how stupid we ALL can be! Great Party DVD.

*I DO NOT recommend this to anyone who is 15 or younger.

This show is awful. The pilot is entertaining, but it's all downhill after that. It's obvious these two are aware of the cameras at all times, as they behave as stupidly as possible. Hilton spits out as many ignorant comments as possible and Nicole acts ridiculous like she was on crack the entire time (after the show she was arrested for possession.) Hilton later admits the producers had them dress up in skimpy outfits to make them stand out in this town as much as possible, and that she was playing up her character by making famous comments such as "What is Wal-Mart, do they sell wall stuff?" After purposely losing every job they're assigned, these two treat the town as if they were not there to try to work as normal people, but to mock it as much as possible. They dress like hookers for a community fair they were offered to help out in, and pick a fight with a 15-year-old girl. Of course the Paris Hilton sex-tape scandal miraculously showed up just in time to get America to tune in to the show. There's talk of a season two, but just how much can viewers take? With an extra star for the pilot being funny and the occassional laugh I got from Nicole Ritchie, the rest of the series is just plain predictable. It's exactly as you'd expect two millionaires, or millionaires' daughters, to act when you've given them their own show; selfish and disrespectful. I feel sorry for the family who offered their home to them.

i love the simple life. ever since i saw season two/road trip, and learned how silly and fun (and extravagant? ridiculous? but in a good way!) paris and nicole are, i have really come to enjoy the show. season one, where they live on a farm with a family for a month, is funny and endearing in it's own right, but really two is the cornerstone. definitely though, if you like the show at all, all of the seasons are worth watching.

Although the premise seems amusing ("Green Acres" for the MTV generation), it seems to have backfired. Instead of being laughed at, Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie only succeed in making fun of the people in this country who work very hard to keep a roof over their heads and food on their tables, and it's not funny at all. This program can't be reality, because no two human beings could really be so stupid as these two act. It is hard to tell the difference between wealth and poverty here, based on the behavior of these two women. They act as though they have had no education beyond the second grade (their misspelling of the word "booger" on a fast-food message board or failure to know what taxes are); they demonstrate no acceptable social skills in manners or etiquette (they ignore people to whom they are being introduced and fail to clean up after themselves in their host's home); and their behavior is impulsive, immature, awkward and obnoxious (whether it's flipping off passersby or intimidating their host brother's ex-girlfriend outside a bar bathroom). After seven weeks, these completely oblivious, self-serving ditzes return to their posh lifestyles, saying goodbye to their hosts, the hard-working people who represent the very foundation of this county, with a wave of their famous "fingers." Fox: next time, dump them deep in the woods, so Bigfoot will be the only one that has to be subjected to their pompous, selfish lives. I have a better idea for a reality show for these girls...dump them into the middle of Rodeo Drive and tell them they've been cut-off by Daddy...that should make for extremely entertaining viewing.

After running across Paris Hilton's awful 'book' in the bookstore, and seeing the reviews on this site of this DVD, I actually suffered through this to see if this was for real. Unfortunately, IT IS! These twits must be acting through the whole thing, because nobody could actually be that appalling, could they? But I really do not believe they are acting. This is pathetic! Have these people had no training whatsoever? Are they completely clueless in the etiquette department? This crap is not funny at all! The Leding family must have the patience of a saint, or perhaps, unlike their ungrateful guests, they just did not want to make fools of themselves on national tv. I would have thrown them out in the first 30 minutes! It is absolutely appalling to me how two totally disgusting, dishonest, wretched, lazy and downright stupid people can garner so much attention. This crap is an embarrassment to America! Who are their fans? Rebellious teens? Nothing these two did in this awful escapade was worthy of watching. Stealing, lying, picking on teen girls and taking their boyfriends? Dressing like hookers, acting unbelievably snobbish and stupid, and laughing at their hosts? And why wasn't Nicole Ritchie arrested for her little Clorox incident? People look up to these two because they happen to be born rich? And then some of their 'fans' say that people who look down on them are just jealous. What is there to be jealous of? All of their money combined, multiplied by 100 could never buy the most important things in life that they will never have: intelligence, honesty, compassion, gratefulness, morals, manners....
I can only hope that this stupid 'reality' craze will soon come to a halt, and in ten years, nobody will remember who these morons are. Our culture has sunk to a new low!
