Back in 2003, Paris Hilton’s already controversial fame was propelled to new heights when her fish-out-of-water reality series “The Simple Life” debuted. Alongside former BFF Nicole Richie, the socialites faced the realities of the average middle-class citizen. And come this spring, the hotel heiress will return to your television screens in a new light.
The blond starlet gave “Entertainment Tonight” the scoop on her upcoming Oxygen show called “The World According to Paris,” which Hilton says will portray her true self.
“When I did ’The Simple Life,’ I was playing a character that I created and I had no idea it would last so many seasons,” Paris told “ET.” “So I had to continue doing that character, so I think people assume that’s really how I am. But when they see this new show, they’re going to see the real me.”
Despite her previous television persona, the socialite had a blast working on the comedy show, saying, “I had such a great time doing ’The Simple Life’ so it’s so much fun to still be doing it with “The World According to Paris. It’s a show like I’ve never done before. I’m really letting cameras into my real life, and it’s just an all-access pass into what goes on.”
What would a reality show be without a little juice? Paris says that the camera crew followed her every move, including her interaction with boyfriend Cy Waits. “He’s very shy, so this is all very new to him, but he loves me so much and supports me,” she said of the Vegas nightclub owner. Waits joins Paris’ mom, Kathy Hilton, and Charlie Sheen’s estranged wife Brooke Mueller as the co-starring cast.
Hilton isn’t the only starlet to ink an Oxygen reality show. Aubrey O’Day is set on making a comeback with the premiere of her own series, “All About Aubrey,” which premieres on March 7.
