The Simple Life 2 road trip wraps.

The Simple Life 2 road trip wraps.
Less than a month after it began, production on The Simple Life 2 has wrapped. The wrap party was held last Wednesday, and Paris and Nicole showed up with a cow that was given to them as a gift for completing their cross-country trek. Commenting on their adventure (eighth item), they said that working at the Florida nudist colony was awful. Paris says nudity is only for hot young people, preferably those with functional video cameras: “It was really gross. It wasn’t like a nudist colony with people our age or anyone like really hot–they were really old.” Another stop they made was in Bandera, Texas, where Paris played police officer. One of the fashion victims she “arrested” told the Bandera Bulletin it was a gift, literally, from the almighty: “I had been feeling kind of down lately for a variety of reasons and this lifted my spirits. It’s like the Good Lord said, ‘I’m going to have one of the most famous girls on the face of the earth come visit you.’ You never know how you are going to be blessed.”
