In a recent interview, Nicole Richie revealed that she was once offered her own daytime talk show but turned it down.
“Telepictures [the Emmy award winning production company of #CandidlyNicole] and I had come together and they talked to me about doing a daytime talk show, and I didn’t feel at the time, that I was ready for that but I like the idea of exploring and l like the idea of learning and talking to people about topics.”
Nicole Richie was recently in Sydney, Australia to attend to the Golden Slipper carnival as she is their new ambassador. Whilst there she of course did a lot of press, but journalists were presented with a list of banned topics that they could not ask Nicole about.
The list: drugs, rehab, family, Cameron Diaz, The Simple Life, her adoption, Not There movement and #AskHerMore campaign involvement.
One journalist said “Basically all that was left to talk about was horses” after she toyed around asking if they could discuss the “penis jacket,” only to be told “absolutely not” by “one of [Nicole’s] 10 minders.”
On March 18th, Nicole Richie was photographed leaving Catalina restaurant in Sydney, Australia.

The Daily Mail wrote up an article about Nicole Richie skipping presenting the Golden Slipper trophy to the carnival winner due to other commitments “despite being the international ambassador for event.”
While Nicole Richie’s appearance at the Tooheys New Golden Slipper Day racing carnival at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday added glamour to proceedings, she failed to carry out one of the most important parts of her expected duties.
Richie made a quick exit just as the coveted Golden Slipper trophy was being presented to the winner, Gai Waterhouse, with a source believing the Hollywood star’s entourage whisked her away over concerns about the stage due to overcrowding.
However, according to event organisers, pink-haired Richie was unable to present the trophy in her role as the international ambassador for the Autumn Racing Carnival event ‘due to timings and additional commitments’.
As part of her job, 33-year-old Nicole was in Sydney for three days, partaking in interviews and photoshoots in preparation for the race day at the Royal Randwick Racecourse.
On the day she was introduced to the waiting crowd and took part in a Q&A interview while on stage, and also judged Myer’s popular Fashions On The Field competition alongside former Home And Away star Jodi Anasta.
Richie was listed as being the presenter of the coveted Golden Slipper trophy, the race won by Vancouver for trainer Gai Waterhouse and jockey Tommy Berry.
However when the time came for the gold horseshoe-shaped award to be presented to the thrilled winners, the young fashionista was nowhere to be found.
Whilst in Sydney, Australia, Nicole Richie and Derek Blasberg went to the Sydney Opera House to enjoy an opera. They shared the following photos on their Instagram pages:

Kate Waterhouse (pictured below) interviewed Nicole Richie ahead of her appearance at the Golden Slipper race on March 21st.
Here is a snippet from the interview:
Have you ever been to the races before? I’ve never been. This is my first time.
You must get so many requests from around the world. What made you align yourself with the Golden Slipper? Well, I feel very close to Australia. I really do feel like it’s my second home. We’ve spent so much time there, Joel is an honorary Australian. So I’m going to ride on his coattails there and I just assume that I’m an honorary Australian also. I’ve always heard about the races for so many years and how much fun it is, so I’m extremely honoured to be a part of it.
You judged fashions on the field. What do you look for when you’re judging? I think it’s more than just what people are wearing. It’s how they’re wearing it and what’s behind it and the energy and tone behind the fashion. With fashion, there is something that’s not tangible; it’s just something that you could feel behind when people are really expressing themselves. And I think that that’s probably what I [look] for the most: self-expression through an outfit.
