Paris Hilton may look for a new best friend on a reality show

Although E! cancelled The Simple Life after its fifth season, Paris Hilton may return to reality television.

The show, which will essentially be a search for a new Nicole Richie-esque sidekick, is “expected to be picked up by either MTV or VH1,” Us Weekly reports.

An anonymous source told the magazine that “[t]he show is going to be about her searching for a new best friend. Paris is tired of the haters and she’s looking for someone new. She’s looking for someone new and cool who she can trust.”

Although Paris said would film last summer, E! cancelled it, and an Us Weekly source said then that “the real life drama of their lives overshadowed anything happening on the show.”

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
