Simple Life cast includes Nicole Richie, who was charged with heroin possession.
Bunim-Murray’s Green Acres-style reality TV project, now titled The Simple Life, is currently filming. In addition to Paris Hilton, the show features her friend Nicole Richie, Lionel Richie’s daughter; both are living on an Arkansas farm for the series. Nicole was recently charged “with felony possession of heroin (and a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended or revoked license),” according to The Smoking Gun, which says the charges were related to an LA arrest in Feb. Although she didn’t show up in court and a warrant was issued for her arrest, her lawyer rescheduled and she’ll be in court at the beginning of June.
