She's made the transition from sassy socialite to doting mom and did it all under the pressures of the Hollywood spotlight. The adopted daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole grew up in Hollywood, becoming best friends with fellow socialite Paris Hilton when they were students together at The Buckley School.

From an early age, Nicole studied guitar, cello, violin, and piano, but it was actually her debut on the hit reality series "The Simple Life" with BFF Hilton that earned Nicole the fame she knows today. After five seasons of "The Simple Life" and continuous scrutiny from the public for her weight and lifestyle, Nicole is focusing on her new family with boyfriend Joel Madden, their daughter, Harlow, and son, Sparrow. Nicole is by no means slowing down though. Whether it is music, acting, or designing Nicole is rumored to have several projects in the works that will undoubtedly be successful!



  • Nicole has a clothing line called House of Harlow, after her daughter, Harlow Madden.
  • She knows how to play the violin, the cello, and the piano.
  • Nicole's godfather is the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
