Nicole Richie's Novel Turns Into TV Show

Nicole Richie just confirmed that her 2005 coming-of-age novel, The Truth About Diamonds, is being transformed into a TV show. The former Simple Life is even going to be part of the production, natch.

“I would definitely produce and definitely be in the show,” the socialite tells E! “[But] I don’t know if I need to be the star of this show. I’ve got a lot going on right now.”

The Truth About Diamonds is about this girl named Chloe Parker. She’s a club kid with a drug problem but manages to get her own series of “reality commercials” with her friend Simone. The book tells about Chloe’s struggle with fame, drugs, and romance.

probably lame… but there’s so much trash on tv already and people still watch, so… who cares really?

# 4

i might. but who knows how good or bad it will be.

# 5

Hahaha, she looks so stupid with these glasses. Damn, she’s ugly. And that’s just gonna be a lame autobiography.

# 6

haha I read her book, it was okay.

I don’t know about this being a show though.

# 7

Not to rain on Nicole’s parade or anything but why is her book so different from what we read in the tabloids every week??? I wouldn’t read the book OR watch the show.

# 8

I can’t wait.
love her :)

# 9

she is so adorable that book was really amazing.
i read it like 6 times :)

If you don’t like her then don’t watch.
her fans that love her and have read the book will be watching :)

hating no necessary!

No, wouldn’t be interested.
Perhaps the “Gossip Girl” crowd would be.

I’d watch it.
I friggen hate this new layout. It feels like my page isn’t fully loaded, but it is, thats just the way it looka.
Seriously Lame man…



i would totally watch it!

It would depend on the cast but it sounds like it’s basically just a clone of “Gossip Girl.” And since I watched three seconds of the first scene of that show, turned the channel and never looked back I would have to say probably not.

I am so freaking excited for this.
i am obsessed with Nicole.
its a must watch and a must buy on DVD.
I think Nicole should play chloe’s good side in the book and another actress to play the wild chloe.

loves it!

Nicole is hot and just getting hotter everyday. I love her. her show looks like it is going to be really good they had the clips from the pilot on it looks like it is going to be good.

i don’t think this is going to be interesting enough for me to watch it …..haha, it’s true that she looks stupid with those oversized [atrocious] sunglasses..way too huge for her tiny face goddamn! i think she was hotter back in 2003/2004 when she had more than bones as her body! ..anyway, she’s kinda beautiful but she’s just a fashionista, right? she has a classy style and does absolutely NOTHING else than that….come on, what’s her fame? what has she done worth it? why is famous?a stupid show called “simple life”, in which she just showed how superficial and stupid she is? ahhhhh..i swear…anybody can be a celebrity nowadays..ANYBODY !!

In that picture she looks like Joan Rivers with a tan.

lmao i didnt even noe that she had a book
like hell i would come close to watching her on t.v

Wow, she’s FUGLY in that pic! She looks like (the thin) Star Jones, but has for a while, with those bulgy eyes and the big head! Hmm, all that work to whiten herself up and look and sound like the black Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn’t worked for Nicole!

i’m so excited…will be watching, can’t wait

Can you imagine the style and fashion of the characters.
the trust fund babies.
hollywood divas style like paris and kimberly stewart
the emo dudes like elijah blue
bel air princess like nicole richie

i mean if you haven’t read the book, you should its really amazing.

So, it sounds interesting..but I think its time for hollywood to start producing shows about poor people and what they go thru..just a thought

kidslimsouth @ 07/11/2008 at 10:34 pm

Wow. I didn’t even think she could read, let alone write a whole novel. Good for her!
