Worst News Ever: Fox Scraps 'The Simple Life's Fourth Season

Fox has pulled the plug on The Simple Life. The scuttlebutt around town is that the rift between the shows two stars, as well as Nicole Richie's recent dramatic weightloss, contributed to the cancellation of the series. Fox's stated reasoning is much more diplomatic.
"We did not see a place for The Simple Life on our schedule this season."
That said, Fox additionally suggests that another network may pick up the series. While that's a nice spoonful of sugar to chase such bitter medicine, it's also a black plume of smoke up our collective ass. I'm officially declaring this minor television miracle dead. Neither Paris Hilton nor Nicole Richie has shown enthusiasm about the project in recent months. Hell, when reached for comment on the show's cancellation by Us Weekly, Paris had this to say,
"I’m really excited about my movie projects, my new album and all my various other business ventures."
Which is to say, "I'm really excited about ripping still-beating hearts from the chest of each and every member of U.N. Spacy's staff." But at least she didn't mention Scott Storch by name.
