The Simple Life (w/ Claire Downs)

TV. Watch. Repeat.

Before 'The Simple Life,' life was really not all that simple for Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. The two famous friends were tabloid fodder during an era that wasn't too kind to starlets — and a sex tape and drug possession didn't really help matters. But it did help ratings, so they were given a series, which turned into a massive reality success for Fox. How has the series aged — or increased relevance in a new era? That's what Allison and Kate look to find out, when they're joined by special guest, writer and director Claire Downs. Listen to learn the backstory of the series, how it influenced culture, and all the sexist overtones that clouded judgement surrounding its two stars.
