Nicole Richie is returning to the reality TV space with #CandidlyNicole, a VH1 show based on her AOL series and her humorous Twitter feed.

VH1 has also signed signed a first look/development deal with the star’s Honey Child Prods.

“Nicole’s sharp, acerbic sense of humor and broad audience appeal make ‘#CandidlyNicole’ a perfect fit for the VH1 brand,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming & development. “Viewers will enjoy her unique point of view and earnest look at pop culture as well as her fearless exploration of anything and everything taboo.”

Richie, who co-starred with Paris Hilton on the Fox (and later E!) show “The Simple Life,” parlayed her reality fame into fashion lines, books and more. She was a mentor on NBC’s “Fashion Star” and has been the face of advertising campaigns for Jimmy Choo and Bongo Jeans.

The eight-episode series #CandidlyNicole, which is produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder, will premiere July 17. Richie, Michael Baum and Carrie Franklin serve as executive producers. Executive producing for VH1 are Levison, Jill Holmes and Kristen Kelly.

Richie is repped by WME, Impression Entertainment and Grubman, Shire & Meiselas.

Variety sister site Deadline Hollywood broke the news of the deal.
