Paris and Nicole work at an airport.
For The Simple Life 3, producers are apparently finding places for Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie to work where they can cause real damage, like a school and, now, an airport. On Friday, they were working at at actual airport, Lehigh Valley International. Although no one will officially reveal what the girls did, The Morning Call reports that “[t]here were some sketchy passenger reports that a Delta Airlines flight to Atlanta was delayed Friday evening because Hilton and Richie were taking tickets and making announcements at the adjacent gate.” Nearby, in Bethlehem, the girls were rumored to be working at a high school. The principal of Liberty High School, William Burkhardt, tells the paper, “They were using the schools as a vehicle to locate families, but I don’t think their intent was to actually come to the school.” Burkhardt “doesn’t particularly like Paris Hilton but helped the show out so he could be a ‘gracious host.'”
