​Nicole Richie stars in reality show ‘Candidly Nicole’ on VHI

Nicole Richie has taken her online series, Candidly Nicole, to the small screen.

Hosted on VHI, the quasi-reality show, which premiered on Thursday night (July 17), focuses on the mother of two’s career as a fashion designer, as well as her home life with her rocker husband, Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden.

The series promises to follow the same premise as the online-only, AOL-hosted original, which was loosely based on the comedienne’s hilarious Twitter feed (#CandidlyNicole).

"It's very tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek … between reality and scripted,” she told Us Weekly.

It’s been more than 10 years since the petite fashion designer made her reality show debut on The Simple Life, in which she co-starred with her then-best friend, Paris Hilton.

Since then, Nicole has undergone a dramatic transformation and is now recognized as one of the most stylish women in Hollywood – though her outspoken, outrageous persona has remained the same.
