E! Opts Out of The Simple Life


E! Entertainment Television announced Monday that it will not renew The Simple Life, the reality comedy series featuring celebutantes Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.

The show debuted on Fox in 2003, with Hilton and Richie working as farmhands. After three seasons of similar fish-out-of-water situations, Fox signed off on the series, at which time E! picked it up and produced two more seasons.

E! will end on the finale of the current season Sunday, in which Richie and Hilton are drama-camp counselors.
