Nicole Richie is keeping it all in the family on this season of #CANDIDLY NICOLE – because as past episodes have proved, well, they’re a hilarious bunch.
“I would say my whole family has a pretty good sense of humor,” Richie told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday. “My dad [Lionel Richie] is a jokester like me. He really loves to laugh.”
“He likes anybody to smile and if he’s the butt of the joke that’s going to make people laugh then he’s fine with that, and I feel that I’m kind of the same way,” adds Richie, who has recruited her dad for an episode that “focuses on old age and new medicine.”
“He’s getting older and I want him to take care of himself,” explains Richie. “I brought in my healer … and we did some acupuncture on him and some cupping.”
Meanwhile on another episode, Parks & Recreation star Rashida Jones teams up with Richie to attempt a world record.
“[Rashida’s] my God sister. I’ve known her forever,” says Richie. “She’s very smart. She’s a Harvard graduate and I went to [the University of Arizona], so I feel like it only made sense that the two of us set a world record.”
Plus, Richie’s newly married brother-in-law Benji Madden is also joining in on the family fun by making a “really funny” appearance as a realtor.
“Benji was on an episode where I discovered real estate and … I kind of had the idea, if you’re going to show somebody a house you need to have it be a real home. So I had different people in there just to make it feel very homey,” says Richie. “I thought that Benj would be great for that so he was one of the people that was in the house while I was showing different people the house.”
Will Richie’s new sister-in-law (and Madden’s wife) Cameron Diaz appear on the show?
She says, “I don’t know who’s going to be on the next season of my show.”
#CANDIDLY NICOLE returns for the second half of its second season Thursday on AOL.
Time for a change at Cameron-Diaz.org with a brand new theme on the main site thanks to the wonderful Kaci. I’ve realize that the sites previous twitter is being linked to Cameronfan.com so I will be making a new twitter within the next couple of days for everyone to follow. Let us know what you guys thinks of the new look. I hope to have something to update the site with within the next few days.
I’ve went ahead and added unique high quality stills and behind the scenes photos of Cameron from her latest movie Sex Tape. I’ve also added 1 HQ poster that we only had in MQ.

I’ve added blu ray captures of Cameron’s role in The Counselor. She had such a small role but I manage to add the photos I could. I will try and screen cap Cameron’s appearance on SNL next.

The couple tied the knot Monday night at Diaz’s Beverly Hills home after a whirlwind courtship and blink-and-you-missed-it engagement.
All told, we hear that about 100 guests were in attendance and, while a massive tent was set up in the yard, the ceremony took place inside the house. Friends and family filed into the reception tent after the I-dos.
Word just got out today that the super-stealth duo were planning on taking the plunge, boggling more than a few minds since Diaz and Madden just stepped out as a couple (and an unconfirmed couple at that) last May. The Good Charlotte rocker popped the question a few days before Christmas.
But maybe they started planning when they met, because the big celebration didn’t have the look of an 11th-hour affair. A source told E! News that Benji’s sister-in-law, Nicole Richie, and Diaz BFF Drew Barrymore would be serving as bridesmaids, and Gwyneth Paltrow and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg were among the guests who were spotted arriving. Drew’s hubby, Will Kopelman, arrived separately since his missus was busy getting ready with the bridal party.
So it sounds as though Diaz finally happened upon the right relationship, having lamented less than a year ago how people “chase” marriage because of the lofty ideal that it leads to automatic happiness. In hindsight, however, it certainly sounds as though Diaz’s stance on the possibility of finding the Mr. Right was softening.
About her own storied romantic history, the Sex Tape star told InStyle last spring that she was “grateful for all of it—whether it was something quick and passing or something that lingered too long.
“There is not one thing I’ve been through that hasn’t been a lesson that led me to this moment, and I can’t believe how great life keeps getting,” she said. And just last month, she reminded us that she had never said “I won’t” when it came to saying “I do.”
“You can just tell when people are good partners to one another and are kind to one another and compassionate and generous and thoughtful,” she told E! News during the Annie junket just weeks before getting engaged, all warm and fuzzy when talking about couplehood in general.
“I think that’s a really nice thing and you can see that,” Diaz added. “Because you can also see what people don’t think about their partners [laughs] and aren’t kind, aren’t generous. I think it’s obvious. Those things are obvious.”
As for her own future plans, whether she had any idea of what was coming or not, the actress said, “I stay right present, in the moment. I’m not the person, for whatever reason, I’m never projecting myself too far forward. I don’t live in the past. I try to stay really present, right in the moment where I’m at…And so, I’ve never said ‘never’ to anything. Believe me, I’ll try anything once or twice or maybe even three times.”
And yet all it takes is once. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
