FOX cut “wild” embarrassing bar scene from The Simple Life at Paris’ request.
In an attempt to not “embarrass her parents” (uh huh), Paris Hilton had FOX cut a scene from The Simple Life, an “insider” tells Page Six. The “insider” says that “Paris and Nicole [Richie] were in the local bar in Altus [Arkansas, where the show was taped] and they got a little wild with some of the local guys.” Meanwhile, the man in that totally non-parent-embarrassing video with her, Rick Salomon, has sued Paris for $10 million. He “alleges that the 22-year-old Hilton, her parents, and her spokesperson have wrongfully accused him of improper–and perhaps criminal–conduct in connection with the filming of the video and the tape’s subsequent sale to an Internet porn site,” The Smoking Gun reports.
