The Simple Life 3 heads to New York.

The Simple Life 3 heads to New York.
After failing to convince anyone on Capitol Hill to employ Paris and Nicole for The Simple Life 3, producers are reportedly moving the series to New York, Rush and Molloy report (third item). If they end up in the city, both the camera crews and the self-absorbed obnoxious socialites will hardly be noticed–but it’ll be interesting to see how producers make living in New York “simple” for two people who spend plenty of time there. Rush and Molloy also report that there’s a horrifying new Paris-themed Halloween costume available, appropriately called the Paris Heiress costume. The dazed look and lack of intellect are not included. Meanwhile, Paris is denying, sort of, using the n-word in her new sex video. She told US Weekly, “Anyone who knows me knows that this is not me. I am not a person who discriminates against anyone–ever.” After learning of her alleged usage of the word, AllHipHop.com had a message for Paris: “OK, you fake socialite, heroin-addict looking, flat-butt having, lazy eye, non-writing, wanna be rapper/video hoe–we got your number–literally. Personally, we don’t care how much money you have. We stay at the Marriott anyway, so f**k the Hilton.”
