Nicole Camille Richie (born Nicole Camille Escovedo; September 21, 1981 in Berkeley, California) is an American fashion designer, author, actress and television personality. Richie rose to prominence for her role in the Fox reality television series, The Simple Life, alongside her childhood best friend and fellow socialite Paris Hilton, which lasted five seasons.
The Simple Life was a hit for the Fox network, premiering with 13 million viewers, and brought Richie and Hilton to international recognition. Richie's personal life attracted significant media attention during The Simple Life's five-year run and she was a constant fixture of tabloid journalism before and after her appearance.
Hilton and Richie are often given the distinction of being the first pair of socialites to become "famous for being famous" through reality television. Afterwards she turned her focus on other projects including charity work and environmental issues. Richie is married to musician Joel Madden and they have two children, Harlow and Sparrow. Richie and Madden founded "The Richie Madden Children's Foundation" in 2010. Richie has starred as one of the three mentors on NBC's Fashion Star.
On July 17, 2014, Richie's reality show Candidly Nicole premiered on VH1. In April 2005, reports surfaced that Richie and longtime friend Paris Hilton were no longer speaking. Hilton commented: "It's no big secret that Nicole and I are no longer friends. Nicole knows what she did, and that's all I'm ever going to say about it." Neither Richie nor Hilton spoke publicly about the cause of the split, though it was speculated that the pair fell out due to Nicole showing one of Paris' homemade sex tapes to a group of their friends.
They eventually reconciled in October 2006. She dated DJ Adam Goldstein from 2003 to 2005, but broke up after a nine-month engagement. Richie was also briefly linked to childhood friend Brody Jenner of MTV's The Hills. Richie began dating Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden in December 2006.
They have two children, daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden (born 2008) and son Sparrow James Midnight Madden (born 2009). The couple confirmed their engagement in February 2010, and married on December 11, 2010. Because of Madden's commitments to "The Voice Australia" Richie re-located to Sydney, Australia with Madden and their children in 2012. In February 2008, the first photos of Harlow were sold to People, who paid $1 million.
