Paris Hilton says Simple Life 6 tapes “in the next couple months”

Any hope that Paris Hilton’s post-jail reformation would lead to the death of her pathetically fake reality show The Simple Life has been lost.

In her boring interview with the worst interviewer of his generation, Larry King, Paris said that she’ll soon start working on The Simple Life 6. “I’m doing another season in the next couple months,” she said.

She also mentioned the show to explain that she really does work hard, because pretending to act like an airhead while being directed by producers is apparently very difficult. “Well, a misconception that I always hear is Paris doesn’t work for a living,” she said, talking about herself in the third person.

“She just, you know, gets money from her family. And I completely disagree with that. I have made a name on my own, by myself. I’ve not taken any money from my family. I work very hard. I run a business. I’ve had a book on the ‘New York Times’ best seller list. I’m on my fifth season on a TV show.”
