There is no doubt that Nicole Richie is one busy mama. The Fashion Star judge has her hands full with her two children, Harlow and Sparrow, her clothing line, and her show of course. The former socialite-turned-fashionista recently sat down with Glamour Magazine where she talked about how she tries to juggle her career with motherhood and why she really hates it when her husband Joel Madden talks to her while she’s watching Real Housewives.
Here are some snippets from the interview:
On wanting to be a hair stylist:
NICOLE RICHIE: I have naturally curly hair, so “natural” beach waves are not so natural for me. I like to braid my hair at night and then let it out the next day. And I also curl my hair with a flatiron. I actually think I’m the best hairstylist on the planet. I’m very serious. I’m mixed, and it’s work to do my hair, so I learned how to do it well myself. I would be a hairstylist. I actually like to go to the salon and blow out people’s hair.
GLAMOUR: Joel once tweeted, “What’s your favorite app?” And you replied, “The How to Make Your Husband Go Out So You Can Watch Reality TV in Peace app.” Hilarious.
Nicole Richie: You know, Joel barely speaks all day, and then out of nowhere he has 9 million things to say, only for 30 minutes, from 9:00 to 9:30 P.M., when I’m watching Real Housewives.
GLAMOUR: You went through a period where you were super thin and everyone was commenting on it. Now you have two kids and look awesome. How do you feel about your body?
NR: I feel [gets all fake dramatic]…great about my body. [Laughs.] You know, aesthetically I can be picky, but I choose not to. I’ve taken huge leaps. I’m proud of that. I work out, and I get lots of sleep, and so I feel great. And that is most important.
GLAMOUR: Now you’ve got the Nicole Richie Collection on QVC. Any advice for women starting their own business?
NR: Study your craft. Know it well before you jump in. I wait all the time. Because I don’t want to just put my name on something and then release it. What’s the point of that?
GLAMOUR: What’s your absolute favorite moment in every day?
NR: When I wake up at 5:30 A.M. and it’s still dark out. I love, love being alone. It helps me to be a better mom to my kids and a better person at work.
