It’s just occurred to me that The Simple Life was miscast. Instead of Paris Hilton trashing up the show with her perma-vacant act, Nicole Richie should have been paired with Ellen DeGeneres to travel the country wreaking havoc. Let’s use this clip from Ellen’s talk show as an example. In it, Nicole is tested on her sense of smell by sniffing a lineup of muscly dudes to identify different fragrances, including her own. As you might expect, the stunt spirals into one giant sniff-fest from both Ellen and Nicole.
