We’re starting to think that television networks are just begging for us to turn on them. First it was The Learning Channel’s decision to make all of its programming about unusual, often dysfunctional families and give their shows hilariously unbelievable names. And now the Oxygen Network, once helmed by Oprah Winfrey herself, has taken a dive too – it’s currently best known for The Bad Girls Club, but they’ve also just revealed that they plan to create a show built around the Queen of the Bad Girls, Paris Hilton.
After The Simple Life and Paris Hilton’s My New BFF we’re pretty okay with Paris not being on television anymore, but apparently Oxygen, formerly a network for all women, now just a network for trashy women, disagrees. A source tells the New York Post that the new Hilton show “Isn’t ‘The Simple Life,’ where she played a campy version of herself. This show will give viewers a glimpse of the real Paris and her life, which is sometimes quite amazing.” Yes, we’re amazed that she got away with having drugs in her purse, to be honest. How ever did she manage that?
Sorry if we sound bitter, but we really thought the world would be done with Paris by now. As much as we rag on Lindsay Lohan and her problems, she at least has acting chops. Paris just keeps getting off for her bad behavior and expects us to remain interested in her “amazing” life. No, thanks.
Update! We hope the cameras are already rolling, because Paris’ boyfriend, Cy Waits, was busted for a hit and run last night after driving into a photographer with his Bentley and then zooming away. Paris was in the car during the accident, Cy later returned to the scene of the crime, talked to cops and was cited for the incident. “Amazing,” indeed!
