Product Description

The complete fourth season of the TV series The Simple Life.

Amazon.com

For being one of the shows that's often thought of as an example of reality TV's origins, there's never been much reality in the overly long-lived series The Simple Life. This two-sided, single disc of the fourth (and last) season has even less to do with reality than any of its preceding installments. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are still acting their parts of simpleton celebrities thrust into the "real" lives of regular folk, but during the contractually obligated production of what had become an astonishingly popular show, the poor little rich girls were in the midst of a bitter feud. They hated each others' guts, weren't speaking, and thanks to the machinations of their individual publicity experts, the whole world knew it. Consequently, the two rarely share screen time together except for ample sequences of split-screening, which makes for an even more bizarre pairing for two dim-witted million-heiresses who remain famous for nothing more that, well, being famous. Season four consists of a variety of slices of suburban Los Angeles family life with the wife/mother role being taken over on alternate days by either Paris or Nicole. As usual, they sneer and make fun of the lower class that they visit--all the while showing absolutely no class of their own. Their feud is vaguely addressed in the first episode, with the other nine being fairly rote imitations of their earlier-season forays into the humdrum of screaming kids, grocery shopping, preparing food, bill-paying, and every other mundane things the girls have been coached into criticizing and laughing at by the show's producers. We're invited into some parts of the girls' "real" lives with glimpses into their homes amidst their psychological destruction of others'. But as with the prior seasons, the can't-look-away-from-the-train-wreck aspect is the thing that keeps our attention. They hate us and we hate them, so it's the very definition of symbiotic entertainment. Since they also hate each other there's an extra element of amusement; only don't think too hard lest the fine line between amusement and contempt disappears. Who knows if their feud was real or made up by the genius publicity machines behind their fame. One thing that's not made up and definitely not comical is the gruesome change in Nicole Richie's body as her issues with low body weight reveal itself over the course of the episodes. No matter how much Paris despised her, she should have taken her ex-friend to In-N-Out for a few late-night burger binges (without the purging). --Ted Fry

I am huge fan of SIMPLE LIFE. I will have to say they make idiots of themselves and make you laugh! This season is not as funny since they are not working together. When they work together they feed off of each other humor and stupidity.......Some of the smallest tasks they are given they turn into the biggest things. Then there are others that I would never have thought of adapting to. I will still add SIMPLE LIFE Season 4 to the collection of 1-3. These are things you can watch over and over and laugh as if you have never seen them before!!! Nicole needs her own TV show!!!!!

With the exception of 'The Simple Life Goes To Camp', I've seen every season of the show, so I feel pretty confident when I say that this was, by far, the worst season out of all of 'em. Not only was it unbearable to watch, but quite insulting as well. Insulting to the families - many of whom were minorities - and insulting to the viewers that E! obviously counted on to watch and buy what they were seeing. It's easily the worst season of anything they've ever broadcast and how it managed to survive for all 10 episodes without getting cancelled is beyond me.

For this season of the show the girls took turns playing housewife to a different family each week. Typical chores included cooking, cleaning, looking after the little ones and keeping an eye on the husbands. But what overshadowed everything was the fact that Paris and Nicole were locked in a nasty feud with each other. Since the two weren't talking, they refused to appear onscreen together. (They do briefly share the screen in the first and last episode, but even then all they do is sling insults at one another and glare at each other with blank, hateful eyes.) To get around this technical difficulty the producers used split-screens to show each girl arriving at the house and greeting the family, before switching back and forth between Paris' week and Nicole's week with the family. There were so many split-screens I felt like I was watching a DePalma movie. Out of the 10 families only 2 really stood out. The first one was about a lush of a husband (who bore a passing resemblance to Ray Winstone) who actually called himself "Captain Tequila". While Nicole was quite eager to pour him shot after shot, Paris wanted to focus on his other hobbies, which included golf.

this one wasn't my favorite. in this season paris and nicole are enemies at the moment and so they take on households one at a time to prove who's better or whatever..I personally think it would have been more entertaining to watch them in the same house together at the same time competing.

This is my favorite season of the series. When the series began Paris was touted as the star and Nicole her sidekick. However, episode after episode, season after season, Richie with her dry, sarcastic sense of humor, her blunt delivery, and her evolving style(and appearance) upstaged Hilton becoming the star. Richie, now a married mother of two, is a successful author, desinger, and Fashion Star mentor

I've seen the first 2 episodes of this show and so far it's a real surprise. I never liked Road Rules, so I went into it a little apprehensive considering the two shows share some creative blood. Plus, the girls (especially Hilton) are really fun to look at.

Paris and Nicole are separate in this season, however the show is great and much FUN. The way it is produced and edited is the success formula of this hillarious and non-stop fun Reality Show! If you liked the previous seasons, you will love this one!

This season splits the girls up due to a dispute that had (which I have yet to figure out). They take turns being a housewife in different cultures and lifestyles. They are put in binds that the every day person goes through like getting kids dressed for school, making dinner, child's birthday party, and trying to pencil in a vacation which they have never done before. I like this season due to the different concept the girls come up with rather than traveling across the nation in a truck (Season 1), work enough hours so they can get to the next milestone (Season 2), or even trying their hand at being interns (Season 3).

I highly recommend getting this season if you love the show and see how they can mess up such a simple task.
