This show shaped the reality TV genre forever
I remember being like 7-ish when this show first came out and I must say, as a 22 year old I still find it to be one of, if not, THE best reality show ever to be aired! Everyone should lighten up. This show is raunchy and at times cringe worthy (in the BEST and FUNNIEST ways possible) but you have to remember it was the early 2000's. This was the way the world was at this time. This show has aged like very cheap wine you can buy at walmart. not the most refined thing in the world by any means but it gets the job done, in this case its still entertaining after all these years! now, kindly I ask that ya'll shut it and enjoy the literal queens of reality TV!!!

I love Paris! That's Hott!
For those who didn't like it and came here to complain, you're an idiot!
The show was so hilarious! They wouldn't have made it if they had chosen 2 other people. Paris alone is amazing and awesome! When Nicole cried about the dead cat, I was in tears laughing so much between her faking it and Paris laughing so hard about it! Was an awesome show and it takes a lot to make me laugh, they did it!
I never get tired of watching reruns either! Don't like them or the show, then shut up and move on!
So many people insult Paris all the time. I love Paris! She's made it big on her very own. Its not her fault she carries the Hilton name either! Those who mock others are useally very jealous cause they don't live the life of others! Its called LAZY!
Paris had goals, made goals and accomplished her goals! I'll always defend Paris Hilton!

Only watch seasons 1 and 2
I'm Paris' age so watched this show when it originally aired. First season was fun and silly, second season less so but still fun to rewatch. Season 3 (which I didn't watch when it aired) was nothing but the catch phrases on repeat, Richie forcing the raunch, and Paris overdoing the ditz act. The producers clearly had decided what their characters needed to be for ratings and oversaturated that. I made it 5 minutes into season 4 (didn't watch when it originally aired) and had to bail. Apparently, they were "feuding" at the time so they filmed the show apart. What was the point of continuing. Without the playing off of one another and giggling, the show doesn't work. They should have stopped after season 2. The more emaciated Nichole gets as the show goes on, the less likeable she gets. Less silly, cute, and loveable, more stern, fake, and overt.

Reality Garbage at it's best!!!
All the vapid, oblivious droning you have come to love from Paris Hilton! Watch as her producer manipulate circumstance to fabricate watchable content. Every trope of reality TV started in this show. If you want to see the shining gem of reality TV and the best indication that we live in a decadent society, oblivious to the real problems of man, WATCH IT ALL! Lionel Ritchie's daughter is in there too!

saw a few episodes---its silly--nicole ritchie has a eating disorder? a little chunky? lionel ritchie must be proud of nicole.......brenda must be ecstatic to have raised such a lovely daughter.......promiscuous walks like a penguin? so thin as if she would break....very flat flat flat everywhere.....

wait, the dumb man says he nearly killed Paris and feels really bad---Paris stated she has been riding horses her entire life but she did not know how to make the horse go faster? the horse just bucked her off---huh? geniuses

The family that hosted them were the kindest and most loving people. The girls were very young at the time. The antics they got themselves into were hilarious and in the end you could tell they were genuinely sweet, loving and caring young ladies. Beautiful as well!

Funny & entertaining
I love this show!! It's 2 best friend (Paris Hilton)and (Nicole Richie) they do different jobs to earn money. What's better than these 2 having to do all kinds of crazy jobs?! The 4th season is good but not near as good as the first 3 since they didn't do that season together. I can't even tell you how many times I've watched it and it never gets old.
