Entertainment Tonight Interviews Paris Hilton And Nicole Richie

The heiress fills Cojo in on her no-frills camping experience on the “The Simple Life Goes to Camp.”
Before PARIS HILTON heads off to jail to serve a minimum 23-day sentence for breaking her probation, the heiress joined pal NICOLE RICHIE and roughed it in the wilds of Malibu as camp counselors.

On Monday night, “The Simple Life Goes to Camp” premiered on E!, so naturally, we sent our own happy camper, STEVEN COJOCARU, to chat with the duo about life without cell phones or air conditioning.

“I want to know how raw this was, how stripped down!” Cojo said.

“We roughed it as much as possible,” Nicole said. “It was freezing. We were in cabins that had no heat, no air conditioning, nothing.”

Paris says the worst part was that Camp Shawnee in the Malibu mountains had almost no cell-phone reception.

“We’d have to do a hike to actually find the cell phone zones,” she said. “It was pretty brutal. I don’t know what I’d do without my Blackberry.”

Adds Nicole, “We would literally be, like, waving around our Blackberries, climbing trees, jumping up in the air, trying to get some sort of reception.”

However, the two said they also got to wear sweatsuits, unlike in previous seasons. But they still indulged in a few pet luxuries, such as designer stiletto heels.

“This one was in six-inch CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS,” Paris said of Nicole.

“All my shoes are either heels or ballet flats!” Nicole protested. “That’s the only shoe that I have. I wear Loubs every day. When I realized that it wasn’t solid ground there, I didn’t know what to do. It’s just part of what I wear.”

Sounds like she’s a natural for “Pageant Camp.” As part of the show, the camp is broken down into five themes: Pageant Camp, Couples Camp, Survival Camp, Drama Camp and Wellness Camp. Monday’s episode showed the girls counseling and helping to give high colonics to obese individuals at the adult Wellness Camp.

“Life” doesn’t get much rougher than that!

“The Simple Life Goes to Camp” airs on the E! Network at 10 p.m. on Sundays.
