Paris Hilton BFF Off
Just when you thought it was safe…just when Paris Hilton finally settled into a long-term relationship and stopped being tabloid fodder…ITV2 spoilt everything! The channel has announced a new programme for the autumn schedules called Paris Hilton’s New Best Friend.
This pathetic rehash of old reality TV formats ingenious new reality TV concept will involve a group of wannabe Hilton BFF’s (that’s Best Friend Forever for those that are born before 1995) living in a house together. The high-maintenance heiress will subject the contestants to back-to-back parties, PA’s and fashion shows to find out who can truly cut it as her faithful sidekick. Each week someone will get booted out of the house until a British version of Nicole Ritchie is found. Scary. Does that mean the eventual winner, two years down the line, will end up wearing strangely oversized sunglasses all the time and become pregnant by some kind of Brit rocker? Paris says she wants the winner to be “hot” and “real”. OK then…
Apparently Paris can use TV to get her anything now. She has to resort to reality TV to find herself a friend! 300 million people in the US and she has to come to our side of the pond to find a mate. It’s sad beyond measure, but what’s really sad is that it will probably be a ratings winner. Anyway, tune in just to see how bad it really is. Or maybe find something a little more intellectually stimulating to watch instead. It’s just a suggestion.
