Paris for new reality show

Paris Hilton is to star in a new reality TV show.

The hotel heiress is going to let cameras follow her around to prove to the world she is not a typical ‘dizzy blonde’ – a misconception she feels has been portrayed in her previous programmes.

The series will be shown on the Oxygen Channel in the US.

A spokesperson for the project said: "This isn't 'The Simple Life', where she played a campy version of herself. This show will give viewers a glimpse of the real Paris and her life, which is sometimes quite amazing."

Paris established her TV persona in ‘The Simple Life’, which saw her and her one-time best friend Nicole Richie give up their glamorous lifestyles and try out various jobs, including farm work and cleaning.

The show was hugely successful and ran for five series.

She also hosted reality show ‘Paris Hilton's My New BFF’, in which she searched for a person to be her Best Friend Forever, filming series in the UK, US and UAE.

Although the Oxygen network has just announced the series, Paris was not being followed by cameras in August, when she was arrested and was later found guilty of cocaine possession in Las Vegas, and her subsequent refusal for entry to Japan as a result of her being on probation.

The network could, however, film Paris when she starts 200 hours of community service, handed to her as part of her sentence for the drug possession.
