Parade recently interviewed Nicole Richie. Have a read below:
Life is more complex these days for the former The Simple Life reality-TV star Nicole Richie, 33. Now the mother of two young kids with husband Joel Madden—the lead singer of rock group Good Charlotte—she’s also the creator and star of VH1’s Wednesday-night series Candidly Nicole, creative director for the retail fashion-accessory line House of Harlow 1960 (available at Nordstrom and online)—and a farmer!
How much of Candidly Nicole is taken from your real life?
It’s based off my tweets, my curiosity, and the fact that I’m not always caught up with the latest and the greatest.
What grabbed your curiosity for season two?
Being spread too thin, inventions in the art world, writing memoirs, how everybody is “a little gay.”
What’s next for House of Harlow 1960?
Home decor. My first step was home fragrances. Tabletop will be next. Also, possibly a children’s line soon.
What gives you your greatest satisfaction?
Being a mom and a wife. In doing all these different things, I get to get in touch with different sides of myself.
You have five hens, two worm farms, two bee hives, plus turtles and a dog.
My fresh eggs are gorgeous! They’re pastel—pink and green. I love watching something grow because I’ve given it care. I have an edible garden at the house. It’s something that I really enjoy. I use the worms for composting.
