Nicole Richie is preparing to tell the truth—to an extent.
The former Simple Life star exclusively tells E! News that a TV show based on her 2005 coming-of-age novel The Truth About Diamonds is in the works and she’s gearing up to be a part of the production.
“I would definitely produce and definitely be in the show,” the socialite says, although she stopped short of saying she would play the lead, adding, “I don’t know if I need to be the star of this show.
“I’ve got a lot going on right now.”
Richie’s thinly veiled memoir tells the story of twentysomething Chloe Parker, who was adopted by a music superstar when she was 7 and as a young adult finds herself running with an elite Hollywood party crowd in between run-ins with the police, tabloid rumors and a stint in rehab.
Throughout, Chloe struggles to maintain her integrity and sobriety as the people she thought she could trust angle to get a piece of her.
“The reserved plaque on the table had ‘Rock Royalty’ written on it…all of us had connections to the recording industry, which was the glue that held us together. We were less like friends and more like a dysfunctional support group,” reads one passage.
When Richie penned the book, she still had a few trials and tribulations to go, such as her breakup with then-fiancé DJ AM and her 2006 DUI bust when she was caught driving on the wrong side of an L.A. freeway.
But Richie has added some much more flattering credits to her résumé since then.
She’s still very much in the public eye but has also cofounded, with live-in beau Joel Madden, a charitable foundation to honor their now-7-month-old daughter, Harlow Winter Kate Madden, and she’s currently working on her second book.
