For those of you who haven't heard of this show, it's a new reality show starring Paris Hilton (yes, Hilton Hotel Chain) and Lionel Richie's daughter.
They have taken the two girls out of the lavish lifestyle and placed them on a farm in smalltown Arkansas near Fort Smith.
I live in Fort Smith. I have co-workers who have seen these girls out and about.
I just want to clarify for everyone that no matter what picture is painted on this show, not everyone (not most people) living in Arkansas are toothless, uneducated, inbred hicks. Most of the people living here are like the people everywhere else...maybe a little more hospitable to strangers and maybe there are more churches per capita here than any other place, but we all go to school, to work, drive cars, live in houses with in-door plumbing, and we ditched our six shooters long ago.
Arkansas is a beautiful place and contrary to what may be shown, we have classy, elegant places to visit and dine; we have terrific fall foliage; beautiful lakes and scenery....we even have shopping....not just WalMart either.
Just wanted to clarify that. I'm not sure what the show will portray, but something tells me it won't make the people of Arkansas proud b/c frankly, that just wouldn't be as interesting to viewers at home would it?
