FOX considering syndicating Simple Life; Paris reportedly says n word in new video.
In addition to selling the show internationally, Twentieth Century television is trying to sell The Simple Life to cable networks. They have “drawn interest from several cable networks. The asking price is estimated to be in the neighborhood of $200,000, far below par for scripted series,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Meanwhile, UK journalist Carole Aye Maung has seen the new Paris Hilton sex tape. She tells the New York Daily News that, in in addition to banging Backstreet Boy Nick Carter in a car, Paris “is polite to [two black men who want to work with her], but calls them ‘dumb n–s’ after they leave.” That might be straining Paris and Nicole’s relationship, Rush and Molloy report today. Or, their relationship could be strained because the person who is trying to sell the tape to media organizations is “an ex-boyfriend of Richie’s, and he is now in negotiations to sell it back to Hilton.” Either way, if there is a third season of The Simple Life, it’ll be hard to match all of this pre-season drama during the actual show.
