NICOLE RICHIE’S LIFE IS NOT SO SIMPLE ANY MORE

It’s NO coincidence that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s family made their red carpet debut at Nic’s movie premiere of Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead). It so happens, they’re all gearing up to star in a reality show. Nicole went from an unknown nepo baby to a household name thanks to one of TV’s first reality shows, The Simple Life. (above) Now she just might be returning to her showbiz roots with a possible new show based on her family’s life. My source says THAT’S the main reason Nicole and Joel decided to include their kids Harlow and Sparrow at the movie premier  – previously they kept their kids OUT of the spotlight.

JOEL MADDEN: SOME THINGS CANNOT BE EXPLAINED

We’ve been watching and kinda curious about Good Charlotte musicians Joel Madden and his twin brother Benji for a LONG time. First of all, we have never seen EITHER one when he was not wearing a baseball cap! And we’re talking YEARS! And for ALL occasions, indoors and out! Joel WAS seen without his baseball cap at his wedding to Nicole Richie in 2010. The next (and last) time he had a bare head was Valentines Day in 2015 when Joel and Benji and their wives double dated. The brothers are nice looking and probably not bald, but they choose to hide behind hats and beards ALL THE TIME! Yet both married well – Nicole Richie and Cameron Diaz – famous and well-off women who seem to be EXTREMELY happy with their covered-up husbands…

THE MADDEN BROTHERS ARE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT

In case you haven’t noticed, identical twins Joel and Benji Madden’s wives are two of the happiest women in Hollywood! And both Nicole Richie and Cameron Diaz are extremely attractive and wealthier than their husbands! The explanation is simple: these ordinary looking guys know how to behave and how to treat women. Yes they’re musicians, but neither of the brothers has ever used alcohol or drugs! They may not LOOK particularly refined, but they have exceptional manners and bend over backwards to treat their women well and raise their children right. Their relationships have always lasted a long time and their marriages probably will too! These twins should write a book.

HOW DID BENJI AND JOEL MADDEN GET SO LUCKY?

Back in the earlier 2000’s, we used to wonder what was so attractive about the brothers Benji and Joel Madden from the band Good Charlotte. The twins were okay looking, but they managed to date the biggest celebrities in Hollywood – actresses, models etc. And they actually came close to MARRYING most of the women they dated. Eventually a friend of theirs confided that Benji and Joel (Rolling Stone Magazine called them “The Polite Punks”) are actually super-decent guys. They work hard, don’t drink or use drugs, have good manners, and love their mother. THAT’S why they appeal to successful women like Nicole Richie and Cameron Diaz! Anyway, the 38 year old twins recently had lunch together at Joan’s on Third and probably talked about how lucky they are…

BENJI AND JOEL MADDEN MADE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE

Benji Madden, 35, must be pinching himself because he can’t believe his good luck. Tonight he’s marrying actress Cameron Diaz, 42, at her 10 million dollar Beverly Hills home. (above) We have a feeling that Benji and his twin brother Joel made a pact when they arrived in Hollywood that they would find and marry wealthy, famous women. They weren’t interested in dating nobodies. Their band Good Charlotte fizzled out and the guys haven’t hit it big in music for awhile. Joel got lucky and married Nicole Richie and they live a very comfortable life with their two kids. Now Benji has landed Cameron, who happens to have a net worth of around 90 million dollars. Here’s a little known fact about the tattooed twins: they don’t drink or do drugs. The marriage is so rushed that we wouldn’t be surprised if Cameron is pregnant already.

AMERICAN TOURISTS NICOLE RICHIE AND FAMILY ARE VACATIONING IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE

Looking like a typical American family on vacation in Europe, Nicole Richie and her musician husband Joel Madden and their kids Harlow and Sparrow took in the local sights. They did all the touristy stuff – sailed on a yacht, had a carousel ride, ate some ice cream, shopped, and took plenty of photos of each other.

NICOLE RICHIE WANTS TOP DOLLAR FOR WEDDING PHOTOS AND PARIS HILTON WOULDN’T UP THE STAKES

Nicole Richie was juggling the invitation list to her wedding until the last minute because she wanted to sell the photo rights for top dollar. Big celebrities bring more money. Nicole’s people were pitting the weeklies against each other to get the best offer. (Keep in mind she took a paparazzi to court recently to keep him away from her family.) When Kim Kardashian and Christina Aguilera both couldn’t attend, the photo price went DOWN, but Nicole still didn’t weaken and invite her frenemy Paris Hilton. Apparently Paris wouldn’t have upped the value of wedding photos. Instead Nicole arranged to have an elephant at the event.

WILL BACHELORETTE NICOLE RICHIE EVER GET AROUND TO TYING THE KNOT?

After numerous incorrect predictions, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden still don’t seem to have any concrete wedding plans. They ARE engaged, however, and Nicole has already had her bachelorette party. It was last month in Cabo and Christina Aguilera and Samantha Ronson were among the girls in attendance. THAT must have been a fun weekend. Above, Joel and little Harlow and Nicole carrying Sparrow had a family night at California Pizza Kitchen.

NICOLE RICHIE AND JOEL MADDEN: WE ARE NOT MARRIED!

We’re still confused by the Star Magazine cover story “NICOLE & JOEL MARRIED!” Star had Nicole Richie and Joel Madden married last June also, but it didn’t pan out. This time Star had many details about their private online wedding ceremony on October 14 conducted by, of all people, Reverend Moon. The magazine also wrote about Nicole’s father Lionel bragging about the wedding and the couple’s friends congratulating them. But Nicole and Joel have called the story ridiculous and insist they are NOT married. Star jumped the gun yet again.
