producers “plotting” Simple Life sequel, even as Paris stops doing interviews.

producers “plotting” Simple Life sequel, even as Paris stops doing interviews.
Bunim-Murray, producers of FOX’s upcoming The Simple Life, are already planning a sequel of the show, which stars embattled media whore Paris Hilton. Entertainment Weekly reports that the producers are “plotting” a follow-up, but Murray backs off that slightly: “‘We would love to do another season with Paris and Nicole. Paris is incredibly charismatic, and the two of them are very funny together. … We have scenarios we’re thinking of, but first we have to see if the ratings live up to the hype.” He might want to talk to Paris first, because she recently cancelled her appearance on Letterman and is “scrapping all planned media appearances to promote her new TV show,” the AP reports. Luckily, before backing out of interviews, Paris made a tape that should provide enough hype to fuel the show.
