Paris Hilton invades cell phones with “mobisodes” of The Simple Life 3: Interns.
Having already made the cell phones of hundreds of her friends unusable, Paris Hilton is now targeting all Verizon Wireless users. She and Nicole Richie will be invading phones with one-minute, never-before-seen episodes of The Simple Life 3: Interns. These “mobisodes”–a trademarked term that apparently means “mobile episodes” rather than “moron boring episodes”–will be available to those to Verizon Wireless customers who cough up 99 cents for each one. They will consist of “original material not previously seen on the series and were specifically produced for transmission and enjoyment on wireless phones,” according to a press release.
