Mom-of-two Nicole Richie covers the February issue of Marie Claire Mexico and opens up about shooting The Simple Life with then-BFF Paris Hilton, and family life with Joel Madden and their kids: daughter Harlow, 6, and son Sparrow, 4.
On motherhood: “Motherhood makes you way more conscious of how you distribute your spare time. Kids are so precious that your priorities change completely.”
On balancing work and motherhood: ”I think that’s a global struggle and we, all women, are constantly trying to find a solution. I’m like any other working mother trying to make things work and dealing with this situation one day at a time. I have an amazing family and they’ve all been very supportive, my parents live only ten minutes away and my husband and his twin brother help me when I need it.”
On shooting The Simple Life with Paris Hilton: “We were filmed 24/7: in the bedroom, in the car, in the living room. That was the most interesting part about The Simple Life, because it was intended to show what we were experiencing in the most truthful way. This changed later on, but at the beginning it was reality at its finest.”
On if she is still friends with Paris: “Paris has been part of my life since I was 2 years old. There’s a strong friendship between our families and we’ll always know each other.”
