Being talentless, rich and stupid is still enough to keep Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie on television. E! just announced that it'll bring the witless wonders back for a fifth season of The Simple Life. The show, where Paris and Nicole make people feel stupid for having family, jobs and an education, is currently in its fourth season. FOX dropped it after three seasons, but E! picked it up. This season, The Simple Life: 'Til Death Do Us Part, is apparently successful enough to warrant another round. According to Variety, the show tripled E!'s primetime ratings when it debuted on June 6.
