Paris Hilton says she’ll live on a farm and star in Green Acres reality show.
Model/famous person Paris Hilton suggested that she’ll be starring in FOX and Bunim-Murray’s Green Acres-style reality TV show. She told Craig Kilborn, “Starting in March, I’m going to be living on a farm … kind of like the ‘Green Acres,’ but it will just be me and my own show,” Page Six reports. Last fall producer Jon Murray said, “There’s going to be wonderful humor in this show, as there is with anyone who’s a fish out of water.” The show doesn’t have a name because producers don’t yet own the rights to “Green Acres.”
