Senators reject FOX’s request to have Paris and Nicole intern on the Hill.
A third season of The Simple Life is apparently trying to find its way off the ground, Paris’ antics notwithstanding. Paris and Nicole “are trying to land intern jobs in D.C. for the third season of their reality show,” according to Rush and Molloy, who report (third item) in part on a Roll Call story. “Fox producers offered the ladies’ services to Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert and uber-conservative Sen. Rick Santorum,” but both turned the network down. Rick Santorum is now best known, of course, for having a sex act byproduct named after him after he made idiotic remarks.
+ also: “interns on the Hill are outraged–outraged!–by the idea.”
