On the fourth season of “The Simple Life,”former anorexic Nicole Richie will take on the role of a camp counselor – at a fat camp. The E! series isn’t calling it a “fat camp” – reps for the show say it’s a “wellness camp focused on eating right, yoga, nutrition and exercise.” Sources say Richie and her equally slender partner-in-crime, Paris Hilton, will be strutting around in short shorts. “They are doing five camps in five weeks,” said one insider. “This is just one of them.”
If these programs didn’t get ratings, they would not be created. You watch them, they make them.
