Nicole Richie and her dog went for a hike with, who else, Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

Nicole Richie appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show (airing today, March 2, 2015) to discuss her VH1 web series Candidly Nicole and reveal how she and Lionel Richie do some daughter-father bonding.

Ellen Degeneres asked the 33-year-old, “You get your dad, you loop him into all kinds of things and I don’t know if he is up for it or not, but you had him get. He must have had acupuncture and cupping before right?”

Richie replied, “He’s never had cupping. He has now, obviously. I’m helping him is really what I’m doing…Enriching his life.”

“Are you?” Ellen asked suspiciously.

“Yes. For sure, you know he’s getting a little bit older…The cupping opens up the blood flow and opens up the energy. I get cupping all the time. My kids get it.”

Ellen added she tried cupping once and didn’t understand it.

Despite the fact that the legendary singer appearing less than enthused (and not enriched either, Ellen pointed out), Nicole said he was a good sport and that she enjoyed it. Since it is her show, that’s all that matters, Degeneres added.
