It looks like we’re at the dawn of a new Paris Hilton era. The former Simple Life star will be back on the small screen with a brand new Netflix show. The streaming giant released the official trailer for Cooking with Paris on Tuesday and it’s definitely not going to be your average cooking show.
The initial tone of the video is reminiscent of a 1950’s cooking series but it’s loaded with satire. We also get to see the popular socialite cooking up a storm in her kitchen – or giving it her very best try. Paris Hilton is seen flipping burgers with a bedazzled spatula, and whisking ingredients while wearing rhinestone-encrusted fingerless gloves. And when she’s unsure of any cooking instructions, she’s not afraid to ask Siri difficult questions like “What is zest lemon?” or “What’s a tong?”
Although viewers probably won’t be learning anything about the culinary arts from the series, Paris Hilton along with executive producers Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, and Rebecca Hertz will nevertheless have a delightfully funny experience in store for anyone who tunes in to the reality series.
Paris Hilton is not by any means a trained chef, but she does claim to be “a natural” in the kitchen. Cooking with Paris is inspired by her viral YouTube series, and will feature some of the businesswoman’s closest friends (or sous-chefs) like Kim Kardashian West, Nikki Glaser, Demi Lovato, Saweetie, Lele Pons, Kathy Hilton, and Nicky Hilton. Unfortunately, it seems like Hilton’s former iconic partner-in-crime Nicole Richie won’t be appearing on the show.
The guests will assist Paris Hilton as she navigates her way through a cooking adventure – from going to the supermarket for groceries to preparing the ingredients for cooking, and finally tasting the food. But if the trailer is anything to go by, it seems like the result is not always an undeniable success.
Cooking with Paris is essentially an off-beat, feel-good series that is totally unscripted. Each half-hour episode promises to feature Paris Hilton “as you’ve never seen her before” as she navigates new ingredients, new recipes, and exotic kitchen appliances. And by then of the series, she might actually learn her way around the kitchen. But we’re not getting our hopes up.
To coincide with the trailer release, Page Six reported that Paris Hilton was expecting her first child with fiancé Carter Reum. However, Hilton denied the rumors on her This Is Paris podcast, telling listeners, “The only thing in my oven at the moment is my Sliving Lasagna.”
In addition to the Netflix cooking show, Paris Hilton is set to headline Peacock’s Paris in Love reality series. The 13-part docu-series will follow the heiress as she prepares to walk down the aisle with the man of her dreams, venture capitalist Carter Reum. There is currently no premiere date for the series.
Netflix is set to release all six episodes of the highly anticipated Cooking with Paris on Wednesday, August 4th.
