From Then To Now: What Happened With Nicole Richie?!
Thursday 6:59 PM, 07/02/2013
Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton used to be real BFF's and starred the Simple Life show that started off in year 2004!
Nicole got friends with her stylist, Rachel Zoe, who pleaded for her body to turn anorexic.
She made a change as she realized The Simple Life gave her a bad image - and changed her style, and got involved with charity.
... And she got hitched with her boyfriend Joel Madden! Today they're married and have two kids, Harlow and Sparrow, together.
We love how she changed her style to boho-chic!
It came to a point though, where she was so thin that the world reacted heavily. Press was all over her and it seems she understood this wasn't healthy.
So she started working out and started eating healthier. The result was stunning - and today she's both happy and healthy.
Look at her here! Fit, but in a healthy way. We love it!
Richie and Madden founded "The Richie Madden Children's Foundation" in 2010.
Richie is currently one of the three mentors on NBC's Fashion Star.
We love you, Nicole!
