Nicole Richie Announces Acting Career, Crowd Goes Wild!

Nicole Richie: mother of two beautiful babies, amazing girlfriend, fashion designer, and funny as hell!

And now, she has more exciting news—a new TV show! What can’t she do these days?

The 28-year-old star writes on her blog,

I am so excited to announce that I am officially working on a television project! I am creating a half hour scripted comedy for ABC in which I will be starring in, as well as producing.

The story revolves around a young, modern and professional woman who must balance her business and family relationships. She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman’s role is: modern vs. traditional.

Lately, I have been surrounded by many different women of all ages and walks of life. It amazes me to watch and observe how many different ideas there are about what a woman’s role should be in this era. I’ve taken these fascinating ideas, and compiled them into something that I think will be very special (and funny!). We’re still in the very early stages and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!

Richie is no stranger to the small screen, as she’s had guest parts on Chuck, American Dreams and 8 Simple Rules, and of course starred in the hit reality show, The Simple Life, with Paris Hilton.

Are you excited for Nicole’s new project? We sure are!
