Here is a preview of the excellent interview by Aly Comingore. Click here to read the full interview!
VICE: How did you get involved with Great News?
Nicole Richie: My manager called me and said, “I have this script—I think you should read it. It’s a Tina Fey show. It’s really funny.” I’m a big 30 Rock fan, and the moment I opened the script I heard that rhythm. Then I came up with about 35 reasons why I couldn’t audition, all rooted in me thinking that it wasn’t going to happen. But I went and auditioned three times, and I got it. They had already shot the pilot, so I was shooting four days later.
You shot the first season before the election, right?
Yeah, we started shooting in August of last year, finished in October, and aired in April. It was probably the first thing on all of our minds, moreso when the season came out. Like everyone, we thought the outcome would be very different. We had some Hillary lines in there that were cut, but there’s no mention of any political figures on the show, which I think is incredibly cool of Tracy. She and Tina are such smart, elegant women, and the beauty of great comedy is when you’re able to keep aligned with who you are while making jokes too. The second season is a good representation of that.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a ballerina. When I was 16, I got real bold, and I wanted to be Britney Spears’s backup dancer.
Did you always have aspirations to act?
I always knew I wanted to perform. When I was in high school, I wanted to do musical theater. I wanted to move to New York and go to college there, but my birthday’s in September, so I graduated at 17. My parents saw the look in my eye and were like, “You’re not going to the East Coast. We need to keep you here.” So I went to college in Arizona for two years—maybe two classes, but I had the time of my life.
Then, when I was done, The Simple Life just happened. At the time, there was no other show to compare it to. It was pitched to me like, “Do you want to take 30 days out of your life and go with your best friend to some city—but we’re not going to tell you where it is—and get paid for it?” And I was like, “Yeah, why not?” I did it, and it was so much fun, but it lasted for five seasons. I didn’t plan on that—my life just went in a completely different direction.
Whilst at JCPenney’s holiday boutique pop-up shop on December 7th, Nicole Richie spoke to HelloGiggles about her beauty resolutions for 2018, and which beauty products are on her Christmas wishlist.
HelloGiggles: What are your favorite skin care products to use this winter?
Nicole Richie: I use Biologique Recherche everything. My skin routine is my makeup routine. That’s where I put my effort because I don’t wear foundation, so that’s where I focus.
HG: Are there any beauty resolutions that you want to try in the new year?
NR: I’ve never had a laser in my life, so I’m open to that.
HG: Are there any products on your Christmas wish list?
NR: I’ve been very into Miranda Kerr’s Kora face oil. I think I will be asking for another bottle of that because I spilled mine.
HG: Are there any beauty trends that you want to try?
NR: I don’t know if at 36 I’m in the place to really try — I feel like I just got to stick with my routine and just keep on truckin’ you know?
HG: You’re adventurous with your hair color, is there anything that you want to try that you haven’t yet?
NR: Right now I’m giving my hair a nice, long break because it deserves it. I just got off of work and I have curly hair, I’ve been having to blow dry and straighten my hair and treat it with color. It’s all really fun, but you have to take breaks in order for your hair to grow.
HG: Are there hair products that you swear by?
NR: Even when I am coloring it especially, I’m all for a good coconut oil, a deep conditioning treatment.
HG: Since you don’t wear much makeup, is there anything that you are obsessed with?
NR: I don’t wear much makeup, but I’ll tell you what, this is a lesson that has been told to me since I was little. Both of my parents said, “You have to be moisturized when you’re out of the shower.” I was never allowed out of the shower without having oil and lotion on my body, and that’s how I raised my kids. It’s mandatory, it’s what you have to do, it’s what my kids’ friends have to do if they come over. I rub them down in oil and lotion and make sure that the skin is hydrated because, the epidermis, as my facialist says, is the biggest part of your body. It takes up your whole entire body, and you have to hydrate it and take care of it.

On December 7th, Nicole Richie attended JCPenney’s Jacques Penne holiday boutique pop-up shop opening celebration held on Broadway in New York City. Nicole was asked to pick out some items she’d choose as Christmas presents for others. Check out a brief interview with ET Online here.
Nicole also spoke to US Weekly, where she revealed her holiday traditions and what her children would like for Christmas this year:
“I can describe my Christmas in a couple of words. Mariah Carey all day, Nicole’s famous apple cider, wine and lots of lights.” (For the record, Nicole’s “famous” cider is a mix of apples, oranges, nutmeg, brown sugar and a secret ingredient that she refused to name!)
“My daughter is very into makeup and my son wants a drone that he will probably not be getting,” Richie told Us. “I know the drone is popular, but it won’t be popular in my house.”
“The magic of Santa is still very much alive,” Richie explained. “Christmas was such a big deal for me when I was growing up, so I make it a big deal for them. I really go all out.”
“They aren’t too concerned concerned about getting things for us yet, it’s really just about what they’re getting. Last year I was called out and shamed because Santa got them better presents then I did. This year Santa will be getting them raw vegetables and I’ll get them what they’ve been asking for!”
