She used to just be an F.O.P. (friend of Paris Hilton), but the diminutive Nicole Richie has proven to be a heavyweight when it comes to media attention. This time, Nicole bested her Simple Life co-star’s TV interview ratings. Nicole’s turn on 20/20 averaged 5.9 million viewers, while Paris’ post-jail interview on Larry King Live averaged only 3.2 million. To be fair, Nicole’s sitdown was on free tv while Paris' was on cable. But both girls’ television presence is bound to be a lot (somewhat?) less now that the Simple Life has been shelved by E!
