Nicole Richie's Novel to Become a TV Show

Did anybody read Nicole Richie's novel The Truth About Diamonds? Yeah, neither did we, but now we can get all the fascinating details we missed by tuning into a new TV show based on the book, a coming-of-age story about one Chloe Parker, adopted by a superstar musician at age seven and eventually joining the ranks of hard-partying celebutantes, ending up in rehab and surrounded by tabloid-worthy drama—ring any bells?

Nicole told E! News "I would definitely produce and definitely be in the show [but]…I don't know if I need to be the star of this show. I've got a lot going on right now." In addition, Nic is continuing to try her hand at authorship, with a second novel of unknown plot in the works.

A juicy TV show and guilty beach read sounds exciting but we must wonder, does this mean Nicole's attempt at starring in another reality show has been nixed?
