Unless they were planning on doing The Simple Life: Cell Mates, it's a good thing that E! has cancelled the reality shtick that stars Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. A source at the network tells Us Weekly that overexposure is to blame for the show's demise. "We felt like the real life drama of their lives overshadowed anything happening on the show," says the insider. "Viewers would see Paris all day long on the news about her going to jail, so they didn't care about seeing her camping with kids. It just was too played out."
Ya think? That's the smartest thing I've heard about Paris, um, let me think...EVER! But the insider also said that it wasn't the heiress that was the troublemaker last season. "Paris carried the show. She was the one willing to do anything," says the source. "Nicole was the diva." Probably because Nicole was so over the whole "sidekick" thing and looking forward to planning her new life as wife and mother with her bf Joel Madden. Or because she knew she was going to jail --- for real. Whatever, the bottom line is that the show is done and it's just one less half hour we'll have to see or hear Paris and Nicole "pretend" to be clueless. And let us all say, "Amen."
