Nicole Richie answers Vulture’s questions about ‘Great News’

Written by admin on May 15 2024

I missed this at the time, but Nicole Richie has reposted an interview she did with Vulture, published back in April, answering their questions about ‘Great News,’ a sitcom she starred in from 2017-2018. The interview is part of Vulture’s ‘Role Call’ series where they speak to actors about their past performances. Read the full interview here or below:

Portia Scott-Griffith doesn’t seem like someone who should be delivering news on an afternoon broadcast in suburban New Jersey. This is a woman who rebrands diet pills as rat poison for a side hustle, won Most Schwaisted Party Peep at the Kids Choice Awards, and took nudes of herself and Tupac … last year? She might also be Banksy. Yet there she is, every weekday, strutting around Great News’s offices like she owns the place, even if she can’t explain what “a journalism” is. “You know what I think would really help the show?” she earnestly suggests in one episode. “If we got rid of the desk so people could see my legs. My mentor Roger Ailes suggested it.”

Great News didn’t last long, which wasn’t too great for us. In 2018, NBC pulled the plug on its teleprompters after 23 episodes, despite executive producer Tina Fey and a solid premise: A local-news producer (Briga Heelan) has to deal with the antics of her overbearing mother (Andrea Martin) after she’s hired as an intern by an executive producer (Adam Campbell) at the station. But it was Nicole Richie’s portrayal of Portia, co-anchor of the fictional Breakdown, that became the sitcom’s standout performance, thanks to a holier-than-thou demeanor that demanded fear and respect from everyone in the newsroom, most of all her older co-anchor (John Michael Higgins, never not deserving of hoots and hollers). Richie never acted in a starring role prior to Great News, and she’s still unsure, all these years later, why creator Tracey Wigfield took a chance on her. But with her return to comedy this month for a Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead remake, Richie was happy to try to better understand what this opportunity represented: “Anything that has Tina Fey attached is a dream come true.”

When I say the words Great News to you, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind?
A visual of me, Briga, Andrea, Adam, and John on set, constantly laughing.

The role of Portia was recast after the pilot was filmed. How did you get into the show’s orbit when they were looking for Portia 2.0?
My agents brought it to me. One of them had worked with Tina in the past. It was a real surprise. I mean, it was very much a shot in the dark. I remember that first audition; I was the last of the day and the list was pretty long. I went in and did it, and then emotionally let it go.

When asked about your audition, Tracey once said, “I feel like she’s too good for us, why is she coming in?” Why did you come in?
I didn’t think I was going to get it. But 30 Rock is one of my all-time-favorite shows and Tina Fey is one of the funniest people I’ve ever watched on television.

When the show premiered in 2017, you had more television appearances as yourself — a Hollywood personality — than an actor in a role. Was starring in a network sitcom a priority for you at the time?
I wasn’t saying to myself that I wanted to be on a network comedy series. But I really loved doing comedy and that was where my focus was. When we got the phone call to audition, it was right before I went on tour with my husband. I got the call back while I was on tour, about half a day later. I flew right home, did the second audition, and then I auditioned a third time and got the role.

Tina said she was always impressed by your comedic sensibility when you starred in The Simple Life. How did that program inform your sense of humor and how to hone a character?
When I started The Simple Life, I was in my early 20s. I was approaching the world as just “existing” — being a wild 21-year-old doing whatever I wanted and trying to keep outdoing myself with adventures. It was a fun, temporary experience for me. When we shot the first season, it was a Real World–style production schedule — the cameras were rolling 24/7. But by the time we got to season two, the production schedule changed and the whole system got much tighter and more focused: Here are the beats we need to hit. The show knew exactly what it needed from us, and in turn, that was the first time I really looked at it as a business, a formula, what was expected of me, and what was entertaining to an audience.

Then we did three more seasons. It was a really cool experience because that show is technically a “reality show,” but Paris and I were anywhere except our own lives. It’s us walking into and disrupting other people’s lives. It became very clear what was expected of us. We went and did our job and did it well. That’s where I fell in love with doing comedy. It felt like something I really wanted to lean into.

What did Tina and Tracey identify in you that others failed to over the years? I’m curious why you think Great News was your first real opportunity to be in a sitcom.
Tracey and Tina are two of the funniest, strongest, and most confident women I’ve ever known. I don’t necessarily know what they saw in that audition; what I do know is that when I shot my first scene with Tina, I fumbled all of my lines. The dialogue was heavy and nothing was making sense. I crumbled under the pressure. I said to myself, I cannot believe I’m standing here across from Tina Fey not nailing this. It was a very hard day for me. Tina Fey took this chance on me and I’m not doing a good job. I had to go into my trailer and calm myself down: Nicole, you’ve got to relax. Just go out there, say your lines, you’re fine.

So it’s the first day of filming, you get to set, and you’re the new kid on the block among the other actors. What do you remember most about that day?
I was very much a newbie and nervous. We did the table read before we stepped on set, so I got a chance to meet everybody. Everyone was so warm, welcoming, and very excited to have me join their show. I sat back and watched John and Andrea do what they do best. I tried to take in anything that I could from them.

Did you develop a mentee-mentor relationship with anyone?
We talked about the personal “process” a lot. But it wasn’t just me, it was everyone. Maybe this is part of John’s process, but he had us create our own a capella singing group within our cast. When he starred in The Break-Up, there’s this scene with him, Jennifer Aniston, and the cast singing a cappella. I believe he has an actual a cappella group that he sings with. He really enjoys it. We created one under his guidance; we would sing while we were on our breaks throughout the day. We were going in closets and practicing. It was so much fun. I tried to take the lead on a few songs, but I wasn’t allowed.

One of the key pieces of lore we get about Portia is all of the “dope side projects” she has in addition to being an anchor. A random assortment: She once shot a bazooka in a Taylor Swift video, was the news anchor in two different Batmans, and judged a show called Fashion 9/11 “which was immediately canceled.” Getting all of these opportunities to be creative is an overlap you both have in common. Do you see flickers of yourself in Portia?
Maybe a little bit more when I was actually playing Portia. I was 35 years old at the time, and I remember John and Andrea specifically looking at me and Briga and saying, “Oh, you’re the young girls. You know everything about social media and we don’t.” They had to have someone helping them. They were talking to us like we were cool young people, but I don’t necessarily identify with that version of myself. The reason Portia is on the news show is because she was the one who knew all about social media and how to get young eyeballs. She was somebody who just lived her life and didn’t necessarily limit herself in what she thought she could take on. I do connect to Portia in that way.

Did you ever create your own backstory for Portia to better understand who she is? It seemed like she was too cool to be co-hosting the number-two-rated four o’clock cable-news hour in the country, “not including the South, Midwest, or top parts.”
I was happy that we saw a peek into Portia’s home life in the second season, but before that, you didn’t really get a lot of her personal life. When she has those moments where she’s bursting into a room, I had to check in with myself and say, Okay, where is Portia coming from? Because the energy is one way in the room. Let’s say everybody is stressed, they’re all focused on getting eyeballs on the news hour, and then Portia barges in, coming off of whatever her fabulous life was. Did she have a boyfriend? How does she spend her time? She wasn’t concerned with anything her colleagues were living in real time. As she’s busting through these doors, she’s not noticing anybody’s stress levels or anxiety.

What did you observe about the response to your acting? I feel there was this general sense of, Damn, Nicole has the chops, what a nice surprise.
It’s always nice to hear that. I was showing up every day and doing what came to me. I felt like, if you show up and give your whole self to whatever you’re doing, you’ll find your audience. You have to lean into yourself and what you can do.

Did the cancellation come as a shock? It’s wild to me that the two seasons aired in less than a year.
We were aware of the ratings, so I think all of us were hoping for the best, but of course, we had to be realistic. It didn’t necessarily come as a surprise. We were disappointed. We loved spending time together. We loved the writing. It really was the dream show. It wasn’t a challenge at all, there was nothing in the writing that didn’t make sense. We knew we could walk on set and do what was asked of us because we really trusted the process. We all felt so safe in that space between the writing and the producing.

It’s been about six years since Great News ended, and, besides taking a gamble on Quibi, you haven’t had another main role again on television. Do you audition a lot?
I’ve auditioned for a few things. It’s all about a role I feel I can connect with. Listen, I love being on TV. I’ve done a few pilots that unfortunately ended up not getting picked up, but it’s really just about finding the right role.

Have there been characters you’ve encountered in recent years that made you think, I could’ve done this and had some serious fun?
Not in anything that’s out right now, but if I could go back in time and be the same age that I am now, I would’ve loved to play Phyllis Nefler in the original Troop Beverly Hills. I connect to her. Shelley Long is hysterical. I’m obsessed with that movie and it has stuck with me since I was younger. I quote it all the time.

What was the closest Great News moment you’ve had with your dad? Is Lionel crashing the House of Harlow offices every month to request tasteful crystal jewelry?
He doesn’t necessarily crash things, but he does love to try. When I said that I was doing the Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead remake, he said, “Oh, I’m so proud of you and I can’t wait to do a cameo.” I said, “What? No one is asking you to do a cameo.” But he includes himself in any job that I get.

Nicole Richie to WSJ: “To this day, I’m still afraid of Freddy Krueger”

Written by admin on April 30 2024

Nicole Richie was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about her routine, ‘Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead,’ reality TV, writing, early 2000s style, being married, her hobbies, and more. You can read the full article below:

It has been over 20 years since “The Simple Life” first aired on Fox, but Nicole Richie remains one of the most indelible reality TV stars. On the show, which ran from 2003-2007, Richie and her close friend Paris Hilton left behind their glamorous lives as L.A. socialites to live on farms and in trailer parks. They quickly became known for their troublemaking and humorous antics.

Now, Richie, 42, is once again bringing a charmingly madcap presence to our screens. She plays a heightened version of a powerful boss as seen through a teenager’s eyes in this spring’s remake of “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.” Her character, Rose Lindsey, played by Joanna Cassidy in the 1991 original, unknowingly hires a 17-year-old as her assistant, and high-jinks ensue.

Off-screen, Richie, who works as creative director of her accessories line, House of Harlow 1960, mostly keeps a lower profile. She lives in Beverly Hills with her family, enjoys nature walks and begins every day at 5:30a.m., before everyone else in her house wakes up. She’s also at work developing a horror comedy. She writes in her bathroom in the mornings before going downstairs to feed her animals, which includes dogs, cats, chickens and turtles. “I should start this interview off by saying I am a Virgo,” she said, “so routines are very heavy in my life.”

Richie, who was born in Berkeley, Calif., lives with her husband, the musician Joel Madden, and their children, Harlow, 16, and Sparrow, 14. Here she discusses the scariest scary movie villain and what she’s learned from her dad, Lionel Richie.

What time do you get up on Mondays, and what’s the first time you do after waking up?
I get up at 5:30a.m. every morning. I’m an early bird. The first thing I do is brush my teeth and then I read. I just finished “James,” by Percival Everett, and I’m going to go ahead and say that it’s the best book of the year, even though we’re in April. It’s going to be an American classic.

How do you like your coffee and breakfast?
I drink black coffee. We make coffee here. Mornings are the craziest time in the house, between the hours of 7 and 8:30 it’s a big rush, so that’s why I wake up at 5:30, just so I can have time by myself. On Sunday, I do some baked goods, muffins or banana bread or something like that, so that everyone can just grab something and go.

What do you do for exercise?
I do a combination of Pilates and circuit training three times a week.

Did you influence what your character, a fashion executive, wears in “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead?”
I did have a hand in what Rose wore, knowing that every time you look at Rose, you’re looking at her through the lens of a 17-year-old. So thinking about how teenagers look at adults was something that I thought was really important, how they think adults dress. It’s a lot of suits, a lot of bright colors, primary colors, the cherry reds and the cobalt blues—what looks like an intimidating outfit to a teenager.

What would you say is the most Virgo thing about you?
I’m a list-maker. I’m a receipts-keeper. By receipts, I don’t only mean grocery receipts, I mean emotional receipts. I’m a homebody who probably doesn’t come off as a homebody all the time. RuPaul said it best. He describes himself as an introvert disguised as an extrovert, and that’s something that really hit home with me. I’m always on time. I’m actually a little bit early because I don’t want anyone to call me and ask me where I am.

Would you ever write another novel?
I would, but I used a ghostwriter for the first two. If I ever wrote another book, I would write it myself.

What’s the most important thing you’ve learned about things like stage presence and confidence from your dad, Lionel Richie?
He is somebody who is very present. He looks people in the eye, he listens to people, he says hi to everybody and really makes people feel seen.

As one of the very first stars of reality TV, how do you feel about how the genre has evolved?
Something that was so cool about doing “The Simple Life” was that it really didn’t have much to do with our daily lives. It was about us leaving our lives for 30 days and going and living other people’s lives. So I always was able to maintain a sense of intimacy and privacy within my own daily life. But I do enjoy “Vanderpump Rules,” just like the rest of ’em.

What do your children say about your iconic early 2000s style?
My daughter asked if I had any of my Juicy [Couture] tracksuits that I could give to her. She was devastated when I told her those were long gone.

What’s the secret to a happy marriage?
Well, I’m in the middle of a “Scandal” rewatch and Joel came in the room last night and tried to make me change it mid-episode, so we’re going through a bit of a rough patch.

Good luck getting through it.
Things are tense. I would say you’ve got to let your spouse watch the shows they watch.

What’s one thing you delegate to your assistant, and what’s one thing you have to do yourself?
Anything that requires anything online is something that I simply cannot do. I make all my own appointments.

Do you have any hobbies or habits that might surprise your fans?
I love to spend time with my animals, my chickens. I love cooking for my family. I like to watch ’90s erotic thrillers and romantic comedies. I love to watch horror movies all year long.

Do you have a favorite of all time?
Emotionally, I’m the most connected to “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” because that’s the one I grew up on. To this day, I’m still afraid of Freddy Krueger. That’s the one character that I’m definitely afraid of.

Do you have something you consider your most prized possession?
My bobby pins. I don’t go anywhere without them. I have curly hair.

What do you like to splurge on?
I don’t know if this is a splurge per se, but I like to go to the store to get books. It makes such a difference. And there are certain things from Erewhon. For a mom with two teens on-the-go all the time, they really do package their fruits and vegetables in a way that’s very grab-and-go.

And is there anywhere you like to pinch pennies?
I have swap meets that I go to to get my T-shirts, down jackets, jean jackets.

I saw on “Jimmy Fallon” that you used to name your pet rats after “90210” actors. Do you still do thematic animal naming like that?
Not after shows, but they do have very colorful names. It’s a combination of my whole family naming them. The most recent addition to our family is our cat Lavender Bumblebee. I named her myself actually. No one agreed to it, but it’s very much her, so I’m glad I stuck to it.

What’s one piece of advice you’ve gotten that’s guided you?
One lesson that my mom taught me is you should never leave the house without lotion on. I was very shocked as I got older and found out some of my friends, my husband included, just walk out of the house with no lotion on. It sends chills up my body. I would never in a million years think about doing something like that. It’s scarier than Freddy Krueger.
