2005: Nicole Richie is returning to The Simple Life, but she already has one eye on the bigscreen. According to a friend, Nicole really wants to reprise the role made famous by Diana Ross in the 1975 hit movie, Mahogany, – it’s about an aspiring ghetto girl who strikes it big in the fashion world. And Diana, who happens to be friendly with Nicole’s father Lionel Richie, thinks it’s a great idea. In fact, Diana has already agreed to re-record the movie’s soundtrack AND make an appearance in the film. Her friend says that Nicole is busy huddled with studio executives and hopes to secure the deal before the end of summer.
