I saw the “Saturday Night Live” episode referred to in the “Paris Hilton Is A Good Sport” link, and I thought she was great. I realize a lot of people love to hate Ms. Hilton, but she can’t help it that she was born attractive and privileged. A lot of people in similar situations have turned out MUCH worse. The reason that she’s so popular is that most women secretly wish they were her, and most guys wouldn’t kick her out of bed. I find that a lot of people don’t realize that the character she plays on “The Simple Life”, is just that. A CHARACTER. It’s mostly SCRIPTED and pre-planned. The people she pranks are compensated for any damage that she does to their property. She’s NOT simple-minded, and I believe she’s more kind-hearted than the average person. That said, I’d LOVE to give those fine cheeks a playful spanking… ;-D
Among the comedic writers who come up with each weeks story line are: Jeff fisher, who was the head writer for MTV’s “Fraternity Life: SUNY Buffalo”, a lackluster imitation of “Animal House” which fed a youthful audience a stereotypical belief about fraternity hedonism, and who was also a writer and producer for “Outrageous Celebrity Look-Alike Behavior: Caught on Tape”. Brian Caldirola, who also wrote comedic episodes of “The Jaime Foxx Show”, “Friends”, and MTV’s “The Real World”. Michael Rotman who wrote comedy episodes for “Later With Greg Kinnear”, “South Park”, and Bill Maher’s “Politically Incorrect”. And Natalya Shneyder, who is known for her writing and production contributions to quite a few other so-called “Reality” shows.
The show’s brilliance is in it’s ability to convince the all-to-willing viewer that they just switch on the camera, and point it at clueless young women who spontaneously write the show for them.
I’d say she deserves that spanking for misleading so many fans. ;-)
