Nicole Richie Bows to Breaking News

Nicole Richie arrives at the CNN building in Hollywood with her 16-month-old daughter, Harlow, for an appearance with her dad, Lionel Richie, on Larry King Live on Tuesday (May 26).

However, the 27-year-old expectant mom and her dad were unexpectedly pushed to another day due to news about the death of Mike Tyson‘s daughter and other breaking news.

Lionel Richie and Nicole Richie were scheduled to be here tonight,” said Larry King on the show. “Due to breaking news developments in many areas, they graciously agreed to be here Thursday night and for the whole hour.”

Nicole made the best of it and even joked as she tweeted “They said I’m too embarrasing [sic] to actually be on the show, so they held me back in the green room.”

    harlow is not going to be able to pass for white like nicole does.
    she got all nicole’s black features

  • Drew looks like a man

    I can’t see how Nicole could “joke” around in the green room about not being able to go on because of a 4 yr old accidently hung herself..what a BITCH! Also, nicole’s little baby is getting UGLIER and UGLIER! I’m sorry but that kid looks like a half cast Joel and that’s GROSS!

  • PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN

    @Adam:
    Wow, another typical dumn American comment. What makes ‘white’ so special that she would WANT to pass as white? She’s a gorgeous little girl. That must break your little Ku Klux Klan heart.

  • patty

    She could easily be presumed as white. That’s all white is anyway. Presumed. Assumed. No one is a single race. Doesn’t exist. But, to the extent that it can be presumed, both mother and daughter look as presumably white as Angelina Jolie.

  • Bella’s mommy

    Harlow is def. my favorite celeb baby. She’s so freaking cute! She makes Nicole even more beautiful.

  • Eve

    At least she didn’t get any Puerto Rican feautures like yours!

  • Bella’s mommy

    Hey Adam you should probably shut up. Have you ever seen pictures of Nicole as a child???? You are so ignorant. They are both gorgeous and you are an idiot.

  • Adam

    I wonder what Salma’s daughter Valentina will pass as because she certainly doesn’t have any European/ French features. She received all of Salma’s features before the nose job. It’s true just look at pictures of Valentina.

  • Christina

    @ Adam
    Uhhh…Nicole has never tried to ‘pass’ for white you idiot! She’s multi-racial and her mom is black, from what I understand Nicole has always claimed to be black herself. Why do you think that everyone wants to be white or pass for white? Even people who are half white say that they’re black. That must be a huge blow to your superiority complex!

    Adam @ 05/28/2009 at 7:58 am #14

    harlow is not going to be able to pass for white like nicole does.
    she got all nicole’s black features
    *************************
    You comment contradicts itself. If Nicole has back features, as you said in your comment, how could she pass for white?

    Secondly, Nicole does not try to pass for white, as far as I know, she is proud of her Black heritage.

    Nicole always tells people, her biological mother is Black. She’s proud of that.

  • jake

    Harlow is funny looking! She reminds me of Gizmo from the gremlins! lol. She’s like a cartoon character! Definitely do not see any pretty in her! maybe she will grow in her looks!

  • Adam

    Too bad Jessica Alba tries to pass for white and hates being Hispanic! Just because her mom is white that doesn’t make you white Jessica. LOL!!!

  • Theresa

    For your ignorant information jessica never said she was white or tried to pass for white. She couldn’t do that anyway with her Mexican features. She only said she wasn’t a Latina. Not everyone wants to be white you fool.

  • hopeso

    Nicole look stylish as always….love her and Harlow is the cutest baby love the hair style and little dress

  • patty

    Adam,

    No matter what Nicole may say–she could still be presumed as white.
    I’ve yet to hear it from her mouth that she considers herself black. Or white. Though with her background, both economic and coloring, she could be classified as white. I’ve gone about 10 years without affixing my race and so have many people that I know So outside the realm of applications, not sure for a celebrity that racial classifications carry the weight that they do for others. Really racial issues comes down to three things. Admission and rewards Politics. Law Enforcement. Message boards and urban myths.

    And I guarantee you this, if they put an APB out, it wouldn’t be for a black woman. Somehow, if you are looking for someone who looks like Nicole Richie, you don’t want to reel in multiple Sherri Sheppards.

  • Kari

    now that is a cute baby girl..

  • me2

    She’s biracial but she said she considered herself black on the Tyra Banks show. Unlike Jessica Alba who is obviously Hispanic but says she isn’t.

  • Pattico

    Hmmm, half black half puerto rican, hmmm

  • Aww!!!!!

    Oh, I love the baby Harlow!!!

    Lionel said Harlow is known as “THE MOUSE.” Isn’t that the perfect nickname for her? Her little scrunchy face has such character. She’s adorable and no doubt will have lots of personality.

    Harlow is a lucky child. Her mom has a lot of time with her. Her dad is not always on the road touring, plus he seems genuinely in love with her.. There are grandparents and in-laws who just cherish the time with her. Harlow looks like a very happy baby. Who could ask for more than that?

  • a realist

    Nicole is such a good mother. She is one of the best mothers in Hollywood.

    ******************
    Theresa, you are also partly wrong.

    Jessica never said she wasn’t Latina. She is proud of he Latina heritage.

    She said, she does not want to be categorized as a ‘Latina actress’, (because that could limit her roles). She wants to categorized as an actress who is Latina.

    Adam,

    I’ve yet to hear it from her mouth that she considers herself black.
    *****************
    Blacks calls herself Black. I have heard her say it myself.

    I have also heard her say, he biological mother is Black. She is proud of her Black heritage.

    Adam,

    *****************
    ””Blacks calls herself Black. I have heard her say it myself.””

    CORRECTION: Nicole calls herself Black. I have heard her say it, myself.

  • Kim

    Remember, Nicole is NOT Lionel Richie’s biological daughter. Therefore Nicole AND Harlow are NOT black.

  • Adam

    Nicole’s BIOLOGICAL mother is black
    her BIOLOGICAL father is hispanic.
    Look at her baby pictures, she looks black, just like Harlow does now

  • James

    NO MATTER WHAT FEATURES NICOLE OR HER BABY HAVE

    THEY ARE BOTH STUNNING. NICOLE IS A STUNNING LOOKING WOMEN PARTLY BECAUSE SHE IS HALF BLACK.

    ADAM, if you think that nicole is so determined on being white then your obviously not a fan of hers. She always says she’s half black. Her BIOLOGICAL mother is black. While her ADOPTED parents are both black..

    Oh and she has no white in her…her BIOLOGICAL DAD is HISPANIC!

    so she’s half black/half hispanic…no white in her

  • patty

    With the abudance of websites, message boards, and google apparatus, if she wanted to be thought of as black, I think that it would be documented somewhere. It is not.

    She’s presumed white. Ethnic identity is unkown? if she even has one. She may be amongst a growing number of Americans who just consider themselves “American”. No hyphen. No dual loyalty.

  • ness17

    lol, harlow is the spitting image of her papa :P

  • dfgfdg

    Ugly baby. Useless, ugly, talentless skank of a mother. I guess there’s no miminium on the amount of talent you need to have to get on LKL. Now even a jobless idiot like her is on

  • tina

    cute baby. but why this woman is famous?i don’t get it, she does absolutely nothing

  • Nicole

    No, her biological father(supposedly) whom she denies is only half Mexican. The Escovedo bunch, Peter & Shelia E are biracial because their mother is black…Juanita Gardier.

  • brook

    We all know that Lionel is not her natural father, he just adopted a biracial child.

  • Violet

    @Adam:

    I agree we you that Harlow will not be able to pass for White. It appears that Nicole has had cosmetic work (maybe a nose job, definitely hair weave) done to increase her White appearance. Because during Nicole’s childhood, she looked Black. Nicole had a very stereotypical, light-skinned Black girl appearance. Harlow demonstrates that Black features are in fact dominant. She may decide to have cosmetic work done to appear White when she’s older. Likewise Nahla, Halle Berry’s daughter, illustrates this as well. Just fascinating!

    Nicole is such a cute mommy.

  • H.

    Not cute at all. She looks like a mini-Joel Madden.
