Paris in Simple Life 3 “discussions,” was in Florida for two of the three hurricanes.
Paris Hilton is “currently in creative discussions with Fox and Bunim/Murray” over The Simple Life. What does that mean, exactly? Who knows, and who cares. What’s really interesting about this report from The Hollywood Reporter is that those of us in Florida may finally have a reason why our state is magnetically attracting an unprecedented number of hurricanes. While we just assumed God was trying to destroy the state before November so we couldn’t screw up the election again, there may be another reason: Paris is here. She’s filming a movie in Miami (not yet another sex tape, an actual film), and THR says she evacuated to Orlando. Additionally, Paris is “planning a string of nightclubs called Club Paris, the first set to debut in Orlando.” That’s exactly where Jeanne, our latest hurricane, headed over the weekend, arriving on land in the exact same Central Florida spot as Hurricane Frances, which came on shore weeks earlier–when Paris was also here. And less than six weeks ago, Charley stormed through the state and hit Orlando, too. Coincidence? I think not.
