E! picks up The Simple Life 4

Paris and Nicole have found a new home for their crap series. The Simple Life 4 was dumped by FOX in October, but E! announced today that they’ve picked up the series.

The 10 episode series, which began production in November, will air next spring. It will find Hilton and Richie in a Trading Spouses-style premise, tending to children, putting dinner on the table and otherwise playing house,” E! Online reports. They’ll be in separate houses, far away from each other.

The show will be subtitled “Till Death Do Us Part,” which is shorter than “We Ran Out of Ideas So We Just Ripped off Wife Swap.”
