Lionel Richie's Daughter Flooded With Acting Offers

LIONEL RICHIE's daughter NICOLE has been inundated with acting offers since her hit reality show THE SIMPLE LIFE made its debut in America earlier this month (DEC03).

Nicole and her hotel heiress pal PARIS HILTON have become overnight sensations with their show, which follows them living in rural Arkansas for a month.

And now 22-year-old Nicole, who also plans to launch a pop career, is scheduled to fly to New York on Friday (19DEC03) to audition for the Broadway show RENT. She has also just landed a guest appearance on rapper EVE's eponymous sitcom and is in talks to star in a Simple Life sequel.

An overwhelmed Nicole says, "My life has changed so much since the show aired. I've been in the public eye my whole life, but this is so different.

"I hear people quoting me on the street! When I presented at the BILLBOARD (MUSIC) AWARDS, I couldn't even walk through the lobby. It was crazy."
