"Nicole Richie could be moving to The O.C. The fourth series of The Simple Life has been dropped and Nic is eager to get her face back on TV. Now the starlet is best friends with O.C
star Mischa Barton, the actress is pushing for executives to cast
Nicole as the new girl in town. "FOX loves Nicole," the insider says.
"Since The O.C. also airs on FOX, Nicole could easily be added to that cast. Nicole is a huge fan of The O.C. and she loves Mischa. She’d love to join that show."
