Nicole Richie Lands Scripted TV Show On ABC

Nicole Richie is returning to primetime, starring and producing a half-hour scripted comedy for ABC. Here’s what the 28-year-old shared about her new TV show via her blog:

“The story revolves around a young, modern and professional woman (Richie) who must balance her business and family relationships. She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman’s role is: modern vs. traditional.

“Lately, I have been surrounded by many different women of all ages and walks of life. It amazes me to watch and observe how many different ideas there are about what a woman’s role should be in this era. I’ve taken these fascinating ideas, and compiled them into something that I think will be very special (and funny!). We’re still in the very early stages and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!”

Can’t wait to check it out!

    I have always thought that nicole is intelligent..<3 I am so happy about her transformation, from a party girl to a responsible woman.<2 keep it up!

  • jill

    i love you, but it sounds really boring

  • nelle

    I will definitely watch that show! I love Nicole, she is so amazing!

  • nat

    I’m going to try to give her a change, you never know if she could be and actress, but I’m a little skeptical. We’ll see.

  • In The Know

    Amazing???…No she is an unattractive emaciated non mannequin that we are aware of through reality TV. If I told you that I could jump over the Empire State building would you believe me?

    Because you’re certainly believing all the falsehoods and marketing told to you about this person. She’s a zero.

  • Chrissy

    I kind of agree with In The Know. I never understand why I read comments like “I love her” under stories about people like Nicole Richie and the Kardashians. I think it’s impressive that she got clean and started a family, but she’s someone that grew up in a rich family who then went on a reality show. It’s not like she’s a real actress or musician or someone that worked to get where she is. I’ve never seen her do any acting before and now she’s getting her own show? I think people have forgotten what real celebrities are.

    Is she that good of an actress? I didn’t think so but i’ll watch it.

  • Jane

    I think she should stick to being a designer and a singer

  • lexy

    The Kardashians are entertaining at least and even the least attractive one looks better than Nicole. Not to mention that at the end of the day the Kardashians are in the business of making money. Say what you want about them but they are business woman.

    This homely woman is famous for being a drunk and she acts like she’s the 1st woman to ever have a baby! Hopefully ABC isn’t putting too much into this show b/c I doubt anyone will watch. She’s a snooze and her “career” involves living off Daddy’s money and having babies?

    sounds kinda boring, i dont expect much
    i really doubt that that it will last long

  • nelle

    People are amazing because of their personalities and how they carry themselves. Nicole can be whatever, and she’ll stand up straight. She’s here and she’s not apologizing for it.

    I will always have a great respect for people only for that, but Nicole is not only a class act, she knows how to handle herself and clean up her own act. There’s someone real in there. I don’t give a crap about marketing. Falsehood in magazines don’t make Nicole false-full. She is size zero, but she’ll never be a zero as a person.

    Have some love and breath! Because if you didn’t know it, people in general are actually kind of amazing! Doesn’t really have anything to do with being a celebrity.
