Nicole, Up Close and Candid

8 Sep 2015 - By TW Staff

Recently, our colleagues over at WarnerBros.com engaged in a little irreverent Q&A with Nicole Richie, star of WBTV's Candidly Nicole. The hit comedy series -- now in its second season -- airs Wednesdays on VH1 and follows Richie's daily adventures, which include (but are not limited to) match-making, pursuing a career as a street artist, and hiring a Doppelganger.

So, without further ado…

Where do your ideas on Candidly Nicole come from?
Nicole Richie: Well, the show initially started based on my twitter feed. I use twitter to laugh, make fun of myself, and explore things that I honestly have no idea about. And that’s what I do with the show.
     It’s not reality and it’s not scripted, it’s just a place in between where I get to explore, learn, and have fun. There’s also always a takeaway in every episode. You’re always walking away with information, but having fun while doing it.

What's your favorite Candidly Nicole episode so far?
NR: The art performance for my dad was hilarious and the online dating with Erin. I’ve never gotten to experience the online dating world, because I was with my husband [Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden] before it became a thing. So to have that as the pilot episode gave the audience a look into what an insane masterpiece the show is.

Most recent personal pet peeve?
NR: People who type with their iPhones on loud. They’re barbarians and probably killers.
