Nicole Richie is making a reality TV comeback.
The star’s AOL series based on her Twitter feed, #CandidlyNicole, has been picked up by executives at US cable television network VH1.
“Nicole’s sharp, acerbic sense of humour and broad audience appeal make #CandidlyNicole a perfect fit for the VH1 brand,” VH1’s Susan Levison has told Variety.
“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.”
Ritchie’s online show made headlines last year when the first episode showed her going in search of someone to remove her “tramp stamp”.
“The show is based off my tweets,” Ritchie told Extra.
“I try and find the humour in something pretty much every day. Each episode starts with one of my tweets.
“I had tweeted that I woke up one morning feeling great about myself until I remembered that I had my tramp stamp.”
The 32-year-old visited a specialist to inquire about getting her “butt crack cross” removed.
“That’s what I do, I go in and research or look deeper into whatever that tweet is,” Ritchie said.
Ritchie’s antics will find a new audience in VH1’s eight-episode series, which is scheduled to premiere on July 17.
Ritchie will also be one of the show’s executive producers.
Variety reports VH1 has also signed a first-look deal with Ritchie’s Honey Child Productions.
Ritchie starred alongside socialite pal Paris Hilton on the hit reality show The Simple Life, which ran from 2003 to 2007.
The resulting fame helped Ritchie launch several successful business ventures, including the jewellery line House of Harlow 1960, named after her daughter. In 2010, the collection was extended to include apparel and shoes.
