Are Nicole Richie & Jessica Simpson Feuding?

Nicole Richie is reportedly feuding with Jessica Simpson on their new reality show, Fashion Star. According to Us Weekly, the 29-year-old television personality, who is part Mexican, is having “friction” with the singer on the show, which will debut midseason on NBC. Both celebrities are mentors on the show, which is a reality competition for aspiring designers.

A source told the magazine that Richie feels that her co-mentor “doesn't have much of a high-fashion eye” and also “makes snarky comments about Jessica's outfits.” “They chat only when they need to,” added the insider, “and they have wildly different opinions about style.” These differences in opinion can lead to very interesting twists on the show, so we look forward to watching how both women handle the drama. Earlier this summer, Richie debuted a new collection of purses in her House of Harlow 1960 line.

The reported friction between Richie and Simpson reportedly isn’t causing Simpson any worry. The 31-year-old singer’s fashion empire brought in $750 million in sales last year, in comparison to Richie’s estimated $10 million from her lines. “Nicole may know trends, but Jessica believes she knows how to make clothes for all kinds of women,” concluded the insider.
