> Description 
The Simple Life is the name of a Fox reality television series originally broadcast in 2003.

The series juxtaposes two young, weathly urban socialites with the people and the values of a rural American farming community. Paris Hilton, heir to the Hilton Hotel fortune, and her friend Nicole Richie, adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie, move in with a family in Altus, Arkansas for a month.

The show's entertainment value stems from the perception that the two women are out of touch with reality.

The show might be compared to the late 1960s television situation comedy "Green Acres".

A second season, titled The Simple Life 2: Road Trip, began broadcasting in the summer of 2004. In this series, the debutants traveled across the United States pulling an airstream trailer with a pink pickup truck. They participated in such activities as catching crawfish, working on a farm, and sausage making. Both seasons are available on DVD.

In the third season, The Simple Life: Interns, Hilton and Richie take various internships with companies along the East Coast of the United States. The program was taped in October and November of 2004 and aired its first episode on January 26, 2005.

According to Fox on July 28th 2005 the Fourth Season of The Simple Life is a go. Both Paris and Nicole are set to be in the show. "Fox announced Thursday that the network has picked up the options on the contracts for both of the feuding friends for the fourth season of the reality show. Aside from the public rift between Hilton and Richie, Fox sees other fodder for on-screen sparks." Rumors claim that Fox will be documenting Paris' and Nicole's wedding preparations and ceremonies, though this type of series will be more on the level of Newlyweds and not of the original Simple Life.

Copycats

In Estonia, local Swedish-owned commercial channel TV3 bought a licence from Fox and produced a reality show called "Lihtne elu" ("The Simple Life" in Estonian). It follows the setting of U.S. "The Simple Life". Two young city girls from the capital Tallinn, who's life so far has been filled with clubs, mobile phones and credit cards, are sent to a rural farming family for two weeks. The two blondes, Triin Tulev and Sille Sutting, have been no celebrities in Estonia. The first episode aired on September 06, 2005.
