According to the press release the 8 – 30 minute episodes "will detail her daily adventures and give insight into her decisions on style, relationships, her work life and her journey to adulthood. Whether it’s having a discussion with her dad about who his favorite daughter is on Father’s Day, meeting with a doctor about having her tramp stamp removed or helping her best friend find a date, Nicole has no problem offering her uncensored opinion to everyone she meets (even if they didn’t ask for it). Her one-of-a-kind, tongue-in-cheek commentary inspires people to laugh, learn and shake their head in wonderment."
“Nicole’s sharp, acerbic sense of humor and broad audience appeal make ‘#CandidlyNicole’ a perfect fit for the VH1 brand,” said Susan Levison, VH1′s EVP of Original Programming & Development. “Viewers will enjoy her unique point of view and earnest look at pop culture as well as her fearless exploration of anything and everything taboo.”
I for one can't wait for this one! Nicole Richie is a style icon whose Twitter feed is hilarious — it was actually named 'one of the Best Twitter Feeds' by Time Magazine.
#CandidlyNicole is set to premiere Thursday, July 17th
