I’ve uploaded an old photo from 2005 of Nicole Richie to the Personal Photos album. It features Carlos E. Lopez, Cisco Adler, Mischa Barton, Masha Gordon, Liat Baruch, Andy Lecompte, Jeff Gold & Roger Berman at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. They look pretty gangster to be honest; wouldn’t want to get in their way (;
Singer Sheila Escovedo spoke about her fame, and how quickly it happens and goes to your head. She says she “felt lost”, and she didn’t like what she had become. She also became very “demanding”: ‘I want it now! I’m not waiting! I’m paying you, so do it – bla, bla, bla.’ Sheila wasn’t prepared for the dark side of fame. She remembers watching her niece, Nicole Richie, go through the same thing she was experiencing. Take a look below:
Sheila Escovedo watched her niece, Simple Life star Nicole Richie, fall down the celebrity slope, too. Richie is the daughter of Sheila E’s brother, Peter Michael Escovedo, who played in Lionel Richie’s band. “Nicole is so much like my mom. They are like twins. They do crazy things,” Sheila E says. She said the family were shocked when Nicole admitted to, and overcame, drug addiction in 2004. “We didn’t have any idea. If we did, we would’ve done something.”
I guess fame isn’t as glamorous and fun as we thought it was. Would you like to be famous even though there is a high risk of falling into the wrong crowd? Let me know in the comments.
Nicole Richie and Winter Kate fans in Australia will be happy to know that the Winter Kate Fall 2010 collection will debut there on Miijo.com before it hits the US stores. Melissa Hoyer presented the Winter Kate collection with a preview of some of the designs on the Australian programme, “The Morning Show“, as shown above. You can check out some photos by clicking above. You can watch the show below. Which is your favourite piece? To be honest, I want one of those capes (;
Watch this video to see how you can get a first hand insight into a day in the life…
The winner will also receive a $300 Starbucks gift card (and we all know how sacred that is) and seven runners up will receive $100 Starbucks gift cards.
You can read the rules for the contest here, and believe me… there are a lot of rules. Anyway, good luck to everyone who enters. I myself aren’t entering because you have to live in America, which is somewhere I would LOVE to be right now.
Nicole was interviewed by ThisIsLondon.co.uk which I assume was when she was in London during February to promote Winter Kate. However, the interview was posted today, so check it out below:
Where do you stay in London?
The Soho Hotel: I love the fact that each room is individually designed.
What was the last show you saw in London?
I went to The Prince’s Trust concert when I was last here with my dad. I sat one row away from Prince Charles who was very charming.

A couple of weeks ago, I entered and won a competition hosted by ShopTheTrendBoutique.com, and the prize was of course a piece from Nicole’s jewellery line, House of Harlow 1960. It’s known as the “Leather Stations” necklace. I was so stoked when I won, I actually couldn’t believe it as I’ve never won anything like this before. I was amazed when it came yesterday, it was a wonderful surprise for me when I got home from almost 8 hours of boring school. I really do encourage you to buy a piece from HOH because I love the necklace, it’s beautiful! You can read more about it below;

Miley Cyrus has definitely been spotted wearing some of Nicole Richie’s designs, from her House Of Harlow 1960 jewellery line, to her Winter Kate clothing line. Miley recently took The Fit & MySpace into her trailer on the shoot of her new, and amazing, music video for “Can’t Be Tamed“, which we saw a glimpse of none other than a couple of pairs of shoes in Nicole’s House Of Harlow 1960 collection. Take a look a video below, the shoes are seen around the 1:18 mark.
