Nicole Richie wants to dethrone Oprah as the queen of talk!
Now that Oprah is retiring her top-rated talk show after 25 years, Nicole is hoping to take her place and is working on a pilot for her daily talk show. "Nicole loves the idea of hosting her own show," a friend says. "She sees herself as the next Oprah."
And The View’s TV host Elisabeth Hasselbeck thinks she has what it takes! “I think she’s lovely. I think she’s the most wonderful woman,” Elisabeth told In Touch at the More and Fitness Magazine Half-Marathon on April 3. “I have a feeling she can do anything.”
Nicole’s pal adds that the concept of the talk show will include segments on fashion, celebrity guests and parenting tips, in addition to helping people improve their lives. "Nicole went from being a heroin addict to a happily married wife, mother and successful businesswoman," her friend says. "She'll share her own struggles and victories in hopes of helping others."
