Simple Life 3 heads to fire station.

Simple Life 3 heads to fire station.
Instead of working at a school, Paris and Nicole will tape an episode of The Simple Life 3 at a fire station tomorrow. They’ll work at the Chief John J. Jasper Jr. Memorial Fire Station in Atlantic City, where at least they can’t harm children. A statement for Bunim-Murray confirms that this taping is not for a fourth season but is, in fact, for the third season, which debuts exactly two weeks from yesterday: “Generally, it’s our policy not to comment on shows while in production. But I can tell you we’ve decided to proceed with other production plans for The Simple Life interns. We appreciate the support and interest of local school officials and wish everyone well.” So what’s up with the late production schedule? We already know that Paris and Nicole got weekends off. But considering the time that’s elapsed since the start of production in October, and considering the places Paris has shown up in-between tapings (Orlando, for one, to open her new club), it’s clear that this season isn’t even pretending to be immersive; it’s just Paris and Nicole spending a day here and a day there to tape an episode whenever they can fit it into their busy, busy lives. Perhaps that’s how producers convinced a very reluctant Paris to participate.
