no cameras seen at Simple Life taping.
The Simple Life 3 is getting weirder by the day. For one, it’s strange enough that they’re still filming the show that kicks off less than two weeks. For two, the Courier-Post reports that after their appearance at a New Jersey fire station, “it remains unclear whether they actually filmed a segment for their upcoming third season of their reality series, The Simple Life.” That’s because, “at 11 a.m., with the rain falling, there was no hint of television cameras or production trucks.” But the report also cryptically says that, later, “attention centered on the training area of the Anthony “Tony” Canale Center in Egg Harbor Township, where word is Paris and Nicole learned the ropes of firefighting.” Additionally, the paper reports that “[t]he duo were supposed to do some work Thursday for Caprioni Portable Toilets in Dennisville, Cape May County. It never happened, according to company officials.” So what were they doing there? Paris and Nicole did go to a local mall last Thursday night, possibly to scout for dates for Paris since she’s exhausted the list of containing everyone who’s available and vaguely C-list or better.
+ also: show “is disputing allegations that a deer was illegally killed so that it could be gutted by the” girls.
+ and: Paris is more disturbed by someone reading her e.mail than people watching her sex tape.
