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?

I can't believe they are putting the 2 worst role models at the camp. They need encouragement- not eating disorder tips!

If I didn't truely believe that all of these parents signed up for this camp simply because Paris and Nicole were going to be counselors I would cry foul. But I can bet all of these parents are just wanting to see their damn kids on tv and don't care about the fact that 2 drug addled crazies are going to be leaving an impression on their kids. But as for E!, they have stooped lower that I ever thought possible. Maybe people will just NOT WATCH this and it won't be back for another season!

How sad. Overweight kids need good counseling and support--not advice from these two who are equally unhealthy. Good grief!

If this is true, then shame on E! and the weight-loss camp for choosing to the absolute two worst people for the job!

STUPID STUPID STUPID!!! These kids have bad enough self-esteem as it is and now they are going to have them interact with someone who has dropped tons of weight in an unhealthy way and is famous for being skinny. As much as this is E!s fault you have to think that the camp was even stupider to agree to this
