The Simple Life 3 starts taping tomorrow.
After a few months of uncertainty about a third season, which included reports of temper-tantrums and rejections, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie are about to begin taping The Simple Life 3.

Starting tomorrow, Paris and Nicole will take off from New York City, traveling throughout the northeast via a working Greyhound bus–one that will also be used by passengers. Thus, the keys have been taken away from Paris. A source told the New York Post, “They’ll be staying with different families for different lengths of time while they do a variety of jobs.”

As reality blurred reported exclusively two weeks ago (which was subsequently reported by others without credit, ahem), one of those will likely include a gig teaching at a Pennsylvania school. Their trip will take four weeks.
