Nicole Richie Undressed
Nicole Camille Richie (born September 21, 1981) is an American socialite, reality television star, and actress, and best known for being the daughter of singer Lionel Richie and for her role in The Simple Life.
In February of 2003, Richie was arrested in Malibu, California, and charged with possession of heroin. She has since been a patient in a drug-rehabilitation hospital.
In December 2003, she publicly spoke out in defense of her godfather Michael Jackson following his accusations of child molestation.
Following the 2003 Billboard Music Awards, the FCC received 80,000 complaints after Richie said "fucking" and "shit" during the show's broadcast (the network didn't edit the words). This was the FCC complaint record, until it was broken following Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's appearance at Super Bowl XXXVIII. The FCC ruled that the words were indecent, but did not fine FOX.
In early 2005, Richie received tabloid speculation of having an eating disorder. Richie, however, said that "I've always been really skinny. I just went through a heavier stage after rehab and during Simple Life 1. Now I have a trainer and the weight has gradually come off."
Richie, however, acknowledged in a May 2006 Vanity Fair interview that she was actually too thin and stated that she was on the path to gaining weight, adding that she was worried young girls would want to look like her.
Nicole's stylist, Rachel Zoe, is also the stylist of two of her friends, Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan, hence they have been seen to be wearing what looks like the exact same dress, which can be seen in March's edition of Australian fashion magazine 'Shop Till You Drop' (p 21).
