Bad Idea of the Week #2: Nicole Richie to Help Overweight Kids


Some weeks, there are just too many bad ideas. Yesterday, for instance, I thought the new reality show called "Baby Borrowers" sounded bad, but next to this news, it's downright highbrow.

For the fifth season of "The Simple Life" on E!, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton will be camp counselors, and apparently, part of that job entails counseling overweight kids at a "weight loss" camp. An E! spokesperson reportedly told Us Weekly:

"The camp has five different themes. Each week will be a different theme. And yes, one week is a weight loss/fitness camp. It's not a fat camp."

Yeah, right. Whatever you choose to call it, E!, the fact remains: a frighteningly thin woman who clearly has weight issues and who recently didn't think drinking water was all that important is supposed to offer children guidance regarding health and wellness.

Even if the weight-loss camp thing turns out not to be true — though I wouldn't put it past E! — the thought of Paris and Nicole counseling kids about anything is pretty scary. What do you guys think?
