Nicole Richie Coming Back to Reality TV?

By: Celebuzz / January 22, 2009

Nicole Richie may not be appearing on Gossip Girl anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean that the 27-year-old won’t be coming to a small screen in the near future.

Star Magazine reports that the Simple Life alum has signed on for a family-oriented reality-TV series about her efforts to juggle motherhood and career.

Even better, Richie’s boyfriend, 29-year-old Good Charlotte vocalist Joel Madden, Joel’s twin brother/bandmate (and Paris Hilton ex) Benji Madden, Nicole’s adoptive father Lionel Richie and her one-year-old daughter Harlow have also signed on for the as-yet-untitled project.

(No word on what kind of concessions were required to obtain Harlow’s participation; solid-gold baby bottle, perhaps?)

“Nicole wants the world to know what it’s like to be a working mom with a rock star boyfriend,” a source tells the magazine.

It’s uncertain how this new project will affect Richie’s duties as head of the House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line, let alone her many charitable efforts.

This is the third Richie-related TV project that’s been said to be in development in recent months. Also supposedly in the works is a reality series in which Richie looks for the next version of herself, and a TV adaptation of her semi-biographical novel The Truth About Diamonds.
