Simple Life staff directed to “write something nice” to “show our support” for Paris Hilton

An executive at Bunim-Murray, the company that produces The Simple Life, sent a memo to staff members asking them to “show our support” in a card for the incarcerated star of their fake reality show.

The memo, obtained and published by TMZ, asks those who “have worked on any Simple Life productions in any capacity” to “feel free to visit Paul Yuan’s desk and sign a card that will be sent to Paris in jail. We would like to show our support, so please write something nice and sign your name with your position in the company.” It was sent yesterday afternoon by Bart Peele, vice president for operations.

Besides scripting their “reality” show, the company also wants to script the card, just in case the “write something nice” demand wasn’t insistent enough. The memo basically tells the staff what to write, and they are not allowed to be bitchy: “Something like ‘Girl, I always thought you would look good in orange! Bart Peele, Operations’ is not what we have in mind while “Stay Strong! Jeff Jenkins, Producer” is.”
