With just a couple of weeks until Gossip Girl returns to ITV2 (and trust us, the second series is glossier than ever), we were over the moon to hear that style icon Nicole Richie wants to join the cast. Even better (how much do we love you, Nicole?) she has stipulated that the role must be ‘ruthless and bitchy.' Can you imagine?! Perhaps she'd be Serena's hot cousin, or Blair's long lost enemy. Or maybe Chuck Bass's long lost love. And one thing's for sure: She'd be clad head to toe in Missoni, looking as gorgeous as ever.
But today our dreams of seeing Nicole do Upper East Side chic were dashed, when she denied the story to a US magazine. Sigh. We're still optimistic though - perhaps all the excitement around the story will convince both parties that it really should happen. In the meantime, we're consoling ourselves with this amazing clip of Nicole's former BFF, Paris Hilton, in the O.C. How young does Mischa Barton look? And check out those eyebrow movements - that's ‘acting' Paris, well done - not to mention the pink lipgloss and froufrou frock (clearly some things never change).
