The last time we saw Nicole Richie starring in a reality show was back in 2007, when she and fellow socialite Paris Hilton gave working-class jobs a try in The Simple Life. But now she’s coming back with a new VH1 unscripted series, #CandidlyNicole.
Based on an AOL web series of the same name, #CandidlyNicole will feature Richie discussing her Twitter – Time voted her feeds one of the best of 2013 so you know it’s good – and commenting on everything ranging from who her dad’s favorite kid is to finding a date for her best friend.
“Viewers will enjoy her unique point of view and earnest look at pop culture as well her fearless exploration of anything and everything taboo,” Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming and development, said in a statement. Taboo, indeed: In one of her more recent tweets, Richie admitted, “I would rather get a colonic in front of everyone, than parallel park in front of anyone.” At least she’s honest?
#CandidlyNicole’s eight half-hour episodes debut July 17 on VH1.
Deadline first broke the news.
