Did Paris Hilton Just Throw Some Shade At Reality TV Shows…?

She may have starred in The Simple Life, but Paris says that things have changed in a *big* way...

Those of us that hit teenhood in the ’00s will know ALL about Paris Hilton and her Simple Life beginnings.

Yup. We don’t know about you, but we absolutely loved to watch Paris and her BFF Nicole Richie kitted out in their very best farmyard gear – ultimate welly goals, no? – taking on a series of tasks.

But now, many have been speculating about whether or not Paris has sent a subtle dig at the whole idea of reality TV shows.

The DJ and beauty entrepreneur joined the Today show, and spoke out about how she believes the whole reality television world has changed since her on-screen days.

When asked about how she felt about the new wave of real-life shows, such as Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Real Housewives, she explained, ‘I actually am so busy I don’t watch television.’

Paris continued: ‘The Housewives is very dramatic, you know my aunts are on it. So I watched the first season but I haven’t watched it since.

‘It’s definitely changed. The Simple Life was a real reality show and I think today it’s more a scripted-mostly shows.’

Of course, it’s no secret that Paris and Kim Kardashian used to be pretty close, before the KUWTK star shot to worldwide fame, largely due to her family’s fly-on-the-wall show with E!.

During their chat with Paris this week, hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were quick to point out how different her voice is IRL. Paris explained, ‘this is actually my real voice.’

The blonde star touched on the ‘baby voice I used to use’ on her reality show, telling them: ‘I actually have a low voice in real life.’
