Nicole Richie’s ‘tramp stamp’ and 7 other gems from her Web show
Nicole Richie is looking to get her tramp stamp removed in the first episode of her AOL Web series, "#CandidlyNicole.”
The show is the latest in original programming from AOL, which has 15 new deals for Web series featuring Sarah Jessica Parker, Hank Azaria, Rocco DiSpirito, Anthony Anderson and Sofia Vergara’s younger sister Sandra, the company announced Tuesday at the AOL 2013 Digital Content NewFront. As part of the programming, Ryan Seacrest Productions, Gwyneth Paltrow and her trainer Tracy Anderson have partnered for a new series called “Second Chances,” TV Guide reported.
But back to Richie, celebutante Paris Hilton’s former BFF who costarred in their reality show “The Simple Life” at the peak of their popularity from 2003 to 2007. Richie, the adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie, sets out to get her “cross going down the crack tattoo” removed in her debut webisode.
“It just means a certain thing, and I don’t want to be part of that group,” the 31-year-old mother of two said.
Here are a few other shenanigans and highlights from the “Fashion Star” mentor’s wise-cracking episode. Be warned, there might be a few spoilers if you can’t spare the five minutes to watch the video below.
She visits Dr. Tattoff, you know, the one from those in-your-face ads. And she proceeds to call him that, only to be corrected by an assistant. It turns out this doc’s real name is Dr. Will Kirby.
She has nine tattoos, which she tells other clients in the doctor’s waiting room all about. “The first one I got in a room inside of a garage and the guy actually took out a gun and asked my friend to hold it while he tattooed me. I was 14 and I got a Chinese ‘love symbol.’” Apparently it didn’t mean what it was supposed to.
This quote: “I mean I’m light-skinned for a black person, which I am, but in like the regular world I’m actually olive-skinned,” she tells the nurse matter of factly. We’re pretty sure she knows who you are, Nicole.
The pain of removing a tattoo is like having bacon grease splatter on your arm. “Don’t I need to be like shot up with numbing something? Injections are just more comforting,” she said.
She got her “tramp stamp” at age 16 when she was “an idiot and I didn’t want my parents to see.”
Childbirth is the worst pain she’s ever experienced. Richie has two kids, Harlow and Sparrow, with husband Joel Madden of Good Charlotte.
SPOILER ALERT: She doesn’t get it removed! Laser tattoo removal just doesn’t fit into her tight schedule at the moment. “I think the main reason that I didn’t do it is because I don’t want to wait eight weeks, I don’t want to wait two months in between each process, that’s going to take over a year,” she said. “If it was a one-time thing I would do it. But i’m not going back every two months, you know. That’s too much upkeep. But I’m hoping that in maybe 10 years when it’s really embarrassing that they’ll have new technology.”
And there you have it. As #candid as ever.
