some in Altus didn’t like Paris and Nicole; farmer says they bribed security.
Contradicting the mayor’s glowing endorsement of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie’s time in Altus, Ark., other townspeople tell the New York Post that The Simple Life stars weren’t exactly angels. The biggest accusation comes from the dairy farmer who the girls pissed off by slacking off. Danny Counsel says that the two “would sneak off at night and pay the security guards off” after they “conned the [local] boys out of several hundred dollars.” They were dating those “boys,” also known as Anthony Leding and Trae Lindley. Trae cheated with Paris on his girlfriend, the homecoming queen to his king. Now he’s annoyed that tabloids are calling him, FOX News reports in a longer version of the Post report. Other townspeople add that the girls “had no respect,” were “a disgrace,” left their rooms “a mess,” had “erratic” behavior, and “dressed real slutty.” That’s it? Sheesh. These people need to get out of Altus more often, or maybe just pick up a copy of the A&F Quarterly.
+ also: on SNL’s Weekend Update, Paris talks about back-door entry to the Paris Hilton.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
