The Simple LifeMilking the scene
Drive series. Take that scene where hotel heiress Paris Hilton and her material girlfriend Nicole Richie try to bottle cows' milk and make udder fools of themselves. "Bottling the milk? That's a no-no," says Danny Council, the dairy farmer who briefly employed the city slickers. "None of that meets health department standards. It was totally for the show." (The producers even had to search high and low for glass bottles, rarely used these days.) All the milk that wasn't already spilt had to be poured out afterward. At least Council got a fresh coat of paint on his barn for his troubles. The front of it anyway: "It was white, and the producers said white didn't photograph 'true,' so they painted it gray."
