Nicole got her surname, Richie when as a three year-old, her parents agreed to her moving in with their friend Lionel Richie,  because they were broke, and she was subsequently adopted; her godfather  was Michael Jackson. She was was educated at Montclair College Preparatory School, then continued her studies at the University of Arizona, majoring in arts and media, but dropped-out after two years. Richie rose to fame in “The Simple Life”, which helped her get public recognition and media attention. The show focused on Hilton’s and Richie’s attempts at working a variety of low-paying jobs, some of which included working on farms, in restaurants, and in camps. Even though the show was cancelled after four seasons by Fox, it was picked up for a final season by E! network, and aired in 2007, but disagreements between the two stars, and both of them facing the consequences of charges of DUI, saw the series’ curtailment. Her previous probation for possession of heroin didn’t help either. However, the series did inspire the release of a variety of international remakes, as well as several spin-off series, namely “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF”, “Living with Kimberly Stewart” and “I Want to Be a Hilton”. The show also received numerous awards, among which were ASCAP, Fox Reality and BMI TV Music Awards, in addition to several nominations for Teen Choice Awards.

Following the success of the series, Richie debuted in a film role in Josh Stolberg’s “Kids in America”, starring alongside Gregory Smith, Stephanie Sherrin and Chris Morris. Aside from the latter movie, Richie has appeared as a guest star in “Six Feet Under” with Peter Krause and Michael C. Hall, “8 Simple Rules” starring John Ritter, Kaley Cuoco and Katey Sagal, and “Eve” among others. More recently, in 2010 she appeared in the reality series “Project Runway”, hosted by Heidi Klum, and in 2016 she appeared in the NBC sitcom, “Great News”.

Aside from television appearances, Richie published the book entitled “The Truth about Diamonds” in 2005, which made it to the list of best-sellers. Her second novel – :Priceless” – was released in 2010, to similar success, and additions to her bank account.

Further, Richie’s dress style inspired her to launch her own fashion line, although one of her first business ventures was a jewelry line called “House of Harlow 1960”, for which she received an “Entrepreneur of the Year” award in 2010, and which subsequently expanded to encompass handbags. The success of her own fashion line was followed by the “Nicole” maternity clothing line, on which she worked with “A Pea in the Pod” store, all adding steadily to her net worth.

In regards to her personal life, Nicole Richie has been in a relationship with John Madden since 2006, with whom she has two children. They eventually celebrated their wedding in 2010. In 2012 the family relocated to Sydney, Australia, following Madden’s work commitments.

1Wearing headbands and oversize sunglasses
1The one thing I always look for in a guy is for them to be circumcised.
2I love Kobe Bryant because I want him to have sex with me!
3I had to address it and say 'No, I don't have an eating disorder.' I've never gone a day without putting food in my mouth. So I want to know why I'm the face of a problem.
4I don't have a clue why I'm famous, either. But I didn't make myself famous. I'm not doing it: you're doing it. But I'm going to live my life whether people are interested in it or not.
5I'm very happy with my life and I wouldn't take back any mistake I've made because it's made me who I am today. I live a very honest life, and I'm happy with the way I'm leading it.
6I'm so used to high drama and high energy all the time -- I always sleep with the TV on.
7You just have to go after what you want you want and if it doesn't want you back, then, so be it - it doesn't deserve you anyways. [On following your dreams]
8Staying sober is something that I don't really even have to think about. I just live my life as today, and today I have great friends, a very stable fiancé, and am very close with my family.
9I'm not insecure, but I'm not like, 'Hi, I'm confident.'
10I have really good instincts about friends.
11To me it was the epitome of caring about absolutely nothing, There were points when my mom would come home and scream at me about something, and I literally didn't care about anything. It was like watching a really dramatic movie with the volume turned down. I thought I was getting away with everything, when the reality was that I was arrested three times and had five car accidents. Two were totals.
12I think fame is harder when people have something to hide, but I'm very comfortable, and have nothing to hide.
13People would ask me about being a voluptuous woman. It was weird because I've been skinny my whole life.
14I do love to shop. But I'm a social shopper. I like to do it while hanging out with my friends. Some of them hate shopping because they treat it like something you have to plan, like a grocery list. But if I'm out and I pass a store, I just pop in.
15I went to the University of Arizona. I stopped because I went there for two years and I felt like I experienced college or whatever. I'm over it. I like Hollywood better.
