    Economic recession forces MTV to cut down the budget of Paris Hilton’s My New BFF 2

    My BFF 2 will air this summer

    Contestants in season two of “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” are living in a mansion that costs half as much as the home the show rented last season. Trips to New York and Tokyo are out this year, as the show’s production budget has been cut 10 percent.

    With the recession eating into advertising revenue at TV networks, a popular solution has emerged – even cheaper reality TV.

    Reality shows already were TV’s low-budget alternative. Producing one on a broadcast network can cost about $950,000 per episode, versus $1.7 million for a scripted drama, largely because reality shows don’t use expensive actors and writers. And advertisers like how reality TV can give them inexpensive air time if they give the production free stuff and services. Add it all up and a network can eke out a profit even if a reality show’s audience is fairly small.

    “There’s just less money around,” said Michael Hirschorn, co-executive producer of the Paris Hilton show, as he sat outside its sun-drenched set in a modernistic building overlooking the San Fernando Valley. “The economy’s a mess, so all of us have to work more efficiently. … We have a reality show that is 40 percent cheaper than this show that just got green-lit.”

    MTV, which plans to air the new Hilton show this summer, is filling more air time with new reality series rather than reruns. Even so, its programming costs are down 17 percent per half hour, said Tony DiSanto, head of programming at the Viacom Inc.-owned network.

    Paris Hilton: My BFF shows help promote my brand

    Written by The State

    Hilton, 28, knows that even a less fancy version of her show can be a big hit for her personal business.

    “It’s a great platform for me, because I can show a lot of my products,” she said. “All the kids have my perfume. They’re all wearing the clothing line, they’re all wearing my shoe line, they’re all wearing my purse line, my belts, my accessories, Paris Hilton sunglasses. It’s kind of like having a free commercial.”

    Eliminated contestant spouts invective during My BFF 2 filming

    Written by The State

    Part of the thrill of reality shows is seeing the unexpected – and how the participants react.

    Indeed, on the Beverly Hills set of the Hilton show, a minor incident erupts. A contestant who is eliminated spouts invective instead of giving Hilton the customary goodbye hug. But tempers soon cool, and later in the evening, the remaining friend wannabes will head off to Ortolan, a four-star restaurant that will offer appetizers in exchange for a mention on the show.

    Doug Reinhardt helps My BFF production!

    Unfortunately, Paris Hilton is too busy filming My BFF 2 and there’s nothing worthy to report, so here it comes:

    According to Paris Hilton, her new boyfriend, Doug Reinhardt, helped the production team of My BFF 2: “It’s good having my boyfriend on set and watching. He comes up with funny ideas and production loves him.”

    She also told the media that she wants him to be her husband: “He’s going to be my husband. We’re best friends. It’s not like we just met. We’ve known each other over the past year. I was in a relationship before and we reconnected. I’m really in love and really happy.”
