Is itching for a comeback on television, Nicole Richie reportedly has been pitching a reality show that would see her traveling the country searching for the next Nicole Richie, EW's Hollywood Insider blog has claimed. The site cited one exec who's heard about the project as saying the unscripted show "would take seven girls from across the U.S. and test their ability to achieve insta-fame."
Nicole then, with the help of a panel of judges, would "whittle down the competition in preparation for the live finale." The winner reportedly would be awarded her own reality show.
At press time, there are at least three cable networks interested in the pitch, which most likely include E! and Oxygen. Further details of the planned-project have yet being disclosed at press time.
Nicole has previously starred in the popular reality TV show "The Simple Life" alongside her BFF Paris Hilton. The comedic show depicts the two wealthy young socialites as they struggle to do manual, low-paying jobs such as cleaning rooms, doing farm work, serving meals in fast-food restaurants and working as camp counselors.
