Paris Hilton Primps for 'Simple' Trip

In the sequel to Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie's hit Fox reality show "The Simple Life," the socialites-turned-TV stars are driving themselves on a 30-day cross-country trip with no money, credit cards, cell phones or boyfriends.

The pink pickup truck is gassed up. The shiny metallic trailer is hitched to the back. And Hilton, in a pink and red sundress with a flower in her hair, is posing for cameras on a South Beach hotel balcony. Let the road trip begin.

"I've never been on a road trip anywhere," Hilton, 23, told The Associated Press on Thursday, sitting in her plush hotel room bed.
"The farthest I've driven is from L.A. to Palm Springs, which takes like two hours. It seems fun."

Hilton, the leggy blonde hotel heiress, and Richie, the equally blonde daughter of singer Lionel Richie, helped make the first season of "The Simple Life" a huge success for Fox. The pretty young ladies broke free from their sheltered upbringings, working odd jobs milking cows and hawking burgers at a fast food restaurant while living with a family in ultra-rural Altus, Ark., population 817.

They drew laughs from viewers who were amazed that Hilton and Richie had never held a regular job or seen a paycheck, much less know what do with one. They did manage to bake a pie, but the family's dog ate most of it before it could be presented at a local festival.

"The worst thing was working at the dairy farm, cause that was, like, our first job," Hilton said. "I hated the cow smell. It was gross."

In "The Simple Life 2," they'll stay with several different families in a continuation of the theme that made the first season a success. Filming was to begin in the next few days; the show airs in June.

"It's going to be definitely more interesting and more adventurous because last time, we were just stuck in Arkansas with a family, but this time it's going to be different families every episode," Hilton says.

Jon Murray, the show's executive producer, says there will be eight episodes, double the number from the first season. Hilton and Richie will travel throughout the southern United States, towing the live-in trailer from Miami Beach to Beverly Hills. Murray hopes they will again charm TV audiences.

"Paris and Nicole are so full of energy in life," Murray says. "They're outlandish sometimes, they're foolish sometimes, they're a little clueless sometimes, but they really are nice and they're not mean spirited in the fun they're having."

Murray says "the girls" will have jobs set up for them, but will be on their own for almost everything else. They have to deal with their own wardrobes, hair and makeup. If the pickup breaks down, it's their problem. And there'll be plenty of small-town fun, Murray says.

"Everyone likes it because it's for all ages," Hilton says. "People from the city will be like, `Oh my God, I cannot believe you did that,' and people from the country think it's funny because they do it every day."

I wonder if they will have a segment with their first experience dumping the black tank?

Heck just the trailer living should be a hoot. Let's hope they get pull throughs otherwise that poor trailer will be carrying a lot of scars before this trip is over.

I'm so proud to say I have no clue who these two are (though I've vaguely heard about them), but somehow it seems depressing to me. It's like a big joke to send these girls off in an AS I could only dream about being able to buy, and then they get to spend 30 days travelling across the country, which I would also love to do if I had the time. All this so we can have a laugh at their expense, watching them on TV when we'd rather be doing what they're doing (without the cameras following us around, of course). Strange world we live in...

Anyway, if they have an episode of them figuring out how to empty their own black tank, that should be worth tuning in for! I'm surprised they didn't get a motorhome for them. Watching them hitch and unhitch, and back up should be worth a laugh as well.

Steph, c'mon!

Love your perspective! Black tank? Backing up? After an obligatory bit o' film of them biffing the backing.... (must resist temptation). I wonder how many support vehicles, producers, film crew, etc are filming this supposedly audacious adventure. I'd swear they'd let someone bleed to death if it heightened the drama.

On CNN.com I found something similar to Brett's MSN column. It adds nothing to Airstream lore so I won't even pass on the URL.

So, whaddya think about the theory that antimagnetic properties of alumi-shacks causes our drain water to go down counterclockwise?

HILTON AND RICHIE'S JOURNEY BEGINS

Well they are on the road! I wonder if she is bringing tinkerbell with her......

Hotel heiress PARIS HILTON has embarked on her cross-country trip from Miami, Florida, to Beverly Hills, California, with best pal NICOLE RICHIE.

The party-loving pair are currently journeying across America in an AIRSTREAM trailer for their anticipated reality show THE SIMPLE LIFE 2 - without credit cards or mobile phones.

Before hitting the road, Hilton told reporters, "I've never been on a road trip anywhere. The farthest I've driven is from LA to Palm Springs, which takes like two hours.

"It's going to be definitely more interesting and more adventurous because last time, we were just stuck in Arkansas with a family."

I hope they run into some real campground characters. Maybe some old hippies driving a 65 BlueBird or somethin like that.

My husband loved to watch Punk'd, and on one ep they tortured some backstreet boy by convincing him some distant hillbilly relatives of his wife had shown up in this nasty old motorhome, and were settin' up camp on the front lawn of their mansion in their exclusive CCR neighborhood. It was pretty hilarious
