2. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, The Simple Life (Fox, E!)
The Simple Life made Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie household names in 2003. Hilton’s sex tape had just come out, and people couldn’t get enough of the vapid heiress. The two seemingly dumb blondes stayed with a family in Arkansas to see how the 99% live. Sausage was made. Hilarity ensued. Oh, and there’s an episode featuring a pre-glitter Ke$ha.
Richie is a mom now, and Hilton has stayed out of the limelight for the past few years. After Hilton's cameo in The Bling Ring, maybe America is ready for a return to Paris.
