Paris Hilton reality TV show may be cancelled by Oxygen
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: UPDATE: Representatives from “The World According to Paris” reached out to inform us that no pickup decision has been made regarding the show yet, and that is has neither been cancelled or renewed. Stay tuned for updates.
It’s the end of the “World” according to Paris Hilton.
The reality show following the fading heiress has been cancelled and will not return for a second season, Vulture reports. The program, which aired on the Oxygen network, opened to meager audience numbers (roughly 400,000 viewers) and gradually eroded from that point on.
“I wanted the show to be as real as possible,” the 30-year-old said when the program started. “There’s a lot of things in the show that I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I cannot believe I’m going to allow this on television.’ Years ago I would have been like, ‘No way.’ The BFF shows [I did for MTV], were all about being perfect and all that, but life’s not perfect, people have ups and down… and I want to show that and be relatable to other people. I’m just like anyone else.”
Only, no one cared. No one continues to care. And now that Oxygen is pulling the plug, we no longer have to care anymore.
Will Paris go away? Unlikely. Even as the network axed her, Hilton tweeted how excited she was for “all my upcoming projects.” Sigh. Maybe she means playing with her dogs and decorating her bedroom, and we won’t have to watch.
