Reality TV Girls

You’ve seen ’em at their worst—crying, fighting, covered in bull feces—and they were still hotter than looted Iraqi artifacts. Now

You’ve seen ’em at their worst—crying, fighting, covered in bull feces—and they were still hotter than looted Iraqi artifacts. Now check ’em out all dolled up and stripped down.

Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie

Where you’ve seen them:
Nicole is the daughter of Lionel “Say You, Say Me” Richie and Paris’ family owns the $3.8 billion-a-year Hilton hotel empire.

Where to see more:
They are the first guinea pigs on Fox’s new reality show, The Simple Life, in which two superhot, filthy-rich big-city debutantes are sent to live with an Arkansas farming family, totally cut off from everything (money, cell phones, butlers, their self-respect) and are forced to interact with—gasp!—common folk and mangy farm animals.

Recipe for disaster:
“I’m really bad sometimes. I’m impulsive and always tempted to do things I’m not supposed to do. So I can totally see myself getting into trouble on the show.”—Nicole

Coming clean:
“I love animals, I hate dead things, and I won’t play with poop.”—Paris

Kim Caldwell

Where you’ve seen her:
Kimberly was one of 12 finalists on American Idol: Season 2 before every fat and ugly girl with a telephone voted her off.

Where to see more:
Fox Sports Net’s new extreme sports show, 54321. “I don’t actually play any extreme sports, but I love ’em. I’ve never been a typical girl. I got challenged all the time when I was younger,” she says, referring to jealous girls and controlling men. “But as a Texas girl, I promise you: Don’t mess with me. Because I will throw down. And I will win.” Mee-ow!

Young ’n’ restless:
Kim’s mother started taking her to beauty pageants at age five. “I remember saying, ‘Mom, I want to be in the talent category.’ But she was like, ‘Huh, babe? You don’t have a talent.’ So I learned a song, and the next week I won first place!“

Secret wish:
“If I could change anything about myself, I’d have bigger boobs. But if I did get a boob job, I’d be like, ‘Check ’em out! Aren’t they great?’ I wouldn’t be one of those girls who try to pretend nothing happened.“

Chantille Boudousque

Where you’ve seen her:
On the victory stand of ABC’s Are You Hot?

Where to see more:
Last month the New Orleans native was serving drinks and making the world hotter than a rectal thermometer in South Beach. “I also worked the door at Crobar, Miami’s most exclusive nightclub. Now I’m moving to L.A.”

On Lorenzo Lamas:
“He was the worst judge…ripping everyone. Where does he get off? He hasn’t had a career in 10 years. He did point the laser at me once, because I wore a bikini with cowboy boots. I think he was upset I wasn’t wearing big stripper shoes.”

Family matters:
“My dad’s a conservative lawyer, so I didn’t even tell him I was on the show.”

Melissa Howard

Where you’ve seen her:
Remember the wild chick on Real World: New Orleans who jumped on stage at a strip joint? Yeah? Then you’re probably the only guy who watches that show, Mary.

Where to see more:
Girls Behaving Badly, the surprisingly funny all-women practical joke reality show, back for its second season on the Oxygen network. C’mon, now you’re going to pretend you don’t watch Oxygen?

Stage fright:
On trying her hand at stand-up comedy in L.A.: “Getting up onstage and making jokes is the scariest thing in the world…I love it.”

Suddenly single:
“I was always that long-term-relationship girl. Now I’m single and kinda socially inept. The only guys I meet are either wearing house-arrest anklets or picking up trash on the side of the highway. But I ain’t picky.”
