Nicole Richie's New Novel "The Truth About Diamonds"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on November 14, 2005 4:43 PM |

Nicole Richie picCurrently making the rounds to promote her just published semi-autobiographical novel, "The Truth About Diamonds," Nicole Richie is denying that the book's villian is a thinly-disguised Paris clone.

Nicole depicts herself as the heroine in the book. The main character, Chloe Parker, is a beautiful, exciting young Los Angeles socialite with a drug problem and a rock star father, which is identical to Nichole own life: she went into rehab in 2002 and her father is singer Lionel Richie.

The obvious Paris Hilton clone is named Simone Westlake and is shown to be a spoiled rich girl who makes sex tapes, hangs out in nightclub restrooms, and drops her so-called best friends for no apparent reason. Nicole calls Simone "an all-around professional fake-rich girl" in the book, and while she's denying that the character is based on her former friend and co-star, she admits, "Simone and Paris have similarities."

Um, LOTS of similarities. Such as: In the book, Simone boasting about having a strain of marijuana named after her. Inside TV magazine reports: "Paris always bragged about how she had a type of weed named after her back in high school." Other similarities include a mockery of Hilton's penchant for stealing catchphrases from other people and wants to be the center of attention at all times.

Inside TV magazine is also reporting that Nicole sent Paris an advance copy of the novel which upset the hotel heiress, according to friends, because of the very obvious way the Simone character is written.

Book Description:

In her electrifying first novel, Nicole Richie tells the sensational story of Chloe Parker, a rock royalty princess and a card-carrying member of Hollywood's inner circle. At the age of seven, Chloe was adopted by a music superstar and his wife, transforming her life from rags to riches. What followed was a wild childhood distinguished by parties with movie stars and rock idols, run-ins with the press and the police, and a subsequent stint in rehab.
Suddenly Chloe shoots to instant fame as a spokesmodel for a national ad campaign. When her long-lost birth father appears out of nowhere and her best friend betrays her, she must struggle to keep it all together -- her sobriety, her friendships, and her integrity despite the betrayals of those around her. Ultimately, Chloe comes spectacularly into her own, achieving stardom in her own right and finding true love.
Through the eyes of the captivating Chloe and the talented voice of Nicole Richie, we are given a no-holds-barred look at Hollywood's new elite, behind the velvet ropes, inside star-studded premieres and parties. Whether they're doing the "circuit" (begin with shopping at Barneys New York, Marni, and Fred Segal, then end with the grilled vegetable salad at the Ivy), or ending up on the front page of your favorite weekly magazine, Chloe Parker and her fellow A-listers never fail to dazzle, their larger-than-life dramas more riveting than any reality show.


I love the content of this book and the characters are great i just got the book and im about finished with it. I jus cant put it down and i never may i repeat NEVER read but nicloe's life is so interseting that i jus had to get it and see jus wut her "life" is about her simple life show is jus so funny and i love it! Nicloe hurry up with ur album so i can buy that also!!

Im so excited about this book im a huge fan of nicole and when i heard she had a book i thought what a good idea, people can really get to know what her life is about

I absoulutely love this book... i have been struggling with where i want to go in life and how i want to live it... i am 18 years old and i belive that i have had a rough yet easy life and i am messing around... not knowing if its going to work... but i love to write and i want to write a book on my life and my struggles but not word for word like when i was 3 i cracked my head open... but i think that every chapter would be about someone whom is signifigant to me and whom has had an impact on the woman that i am today and i would have never thought about doing a thing like this until i have read this book... Sure all my friends are giving me crap cause of all the rumors about Nicole Richie but they are the same that think every rumor that goes on in my school is real and 90 percent of them are lies from people whom just like to hear themselves speak... But no Nicole is most deff someone i look up to... not the whole going to rehab or anything but how she has turned her life around and written this awsome book. I give her props!

I love Nicole Richie's book the "truth about diamonds", i just think it is a great way to let people into her life and let them know what she has been through and to tell people that being famous is not all about getting the best things in life but that there can also be moments that bring you down and in this book it certainly shows that Nicole has been through some serious downs but was strong enough to come through them and i respect her as i have had the a few problems in life like Nicole and have learn't that there is no way around a problem but there is only one way to get away from the problems and that is to get through them. There are alot of people in the world that probably think "awww poor rich kid" and only read the tabloids rubbish but that is never the truth about Famous people that is just junk made up to make them look bad and get publicity not for them but for the publicists. That is what is spoken of in the book and its the truth no one knows of what go's on in Famous peoples lives anyones for that matter onli the people who live there own life knows what really happens and hy they chose to do things and i think Nicole writing a book is the perfect opportunity to tell people of what really wnt and goes on in her life wihout us having to read untruthful articles about her that are nowhere near the truth.


I'm just getting into it. Wow Hollywood is just like the local trailer park except with Louis Vuitton bags and plastic surgery. No wonder Hollywood is sooooooooooooo thin, it's all the coke they snort.

The minute i started reading this book i could not put it down. It is very obvious that simone is paris hilton, and it actually makes me sick at how pathetick and self centered she really is. This book has made me realise that 90% of hollywood is fake! And i founf it funny how carrie "kimberley stewart" was always made fun off in the noval, it is so true how she is like a sheep and she isn't popular and acts like she needs a personal assistant, when really my dog have a bussier life. lol loved the noval 10/10.

i just recently bought this book, so far its totally awsome! i loved how you made some of your friends into some of the characters. i give it 10/10 definatley, and i hope you make another novel, if you do, i'll be one of the first to read it!!

who is everyone.. i really need to no. !!!

can anyone fill me in on who all the characters actually are??

i absolutly had the best time reading this book it was almost impossible to put down

Same shit here in Kuwait! It's weird how I actually related to this book! It's totaly effed up.. but really I gotta thank Nicole Richie for her bravery and honesty, her book helped me put things in perspective! Love Nicole Love Kitson! Chloe from Kuwait!

i dont care what anyone say they just hating and thy need to stop and leave them alone and paris is cool and i no 1 day they will be friends

Hello!can somebody tell me who are these characters in real life,pls?Is Chloe Nicole?Email me at britney962000@yahoo.com.I will be your internet diamond if you tell me(not the finger one)

This book was great. I red Paris's book how to be a heiress first, because I absoultly LOVE them girls. Now Im reading the truth about diamonds and so far its a 10/10!!!
