The Simple Life Was Still On the Air; Is Now Canceled

by at . Comments

No more reality checks for Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. Just breaking the law and hard time served in federal, pound-me-in-the-a$$ prisons.

Obscure Office Space quotes aside, multiple sources have confirmed that their reality show, The Simple Life, will not be picked up next season by E!

Apparently, The Simple Life was still on the air. And was airing on E! Who knew.

A source says that the overexposure of Paris and Nicole - shockingly - is to blame for the show's cancellation.

"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. It was played out."

The source adds that Nicole Richie - not the ho-tel heiress - also became increasingly difficult to work with last season.

"Paris actually carried the show. She was the one willing to do anything," says the source. "Nicole Richie was the diva."

According to one source, the show could get a second chance at life if another network decides to pick up the series (the show's first season debuted on Fox).

Somehow, we don't see it happening. It looks about as likely as Lindsay Lohan salvaging her movie career after her many rehab debacles.

On Friday, Richie, 25, was sentenced to four days in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence, her second DUI since 2003.

Paris Hilton, 26, served 23 days in jail last June for violating probation on a previous reckless driving conviction. Yeah, yeah. Yawn.
