Nicole Richie: My Troubled Past Is My Fault

Nicole Richie has gone from party girl to domestic goddess. But not without regretting a few things along the way.

The reformed bad girl is In Style UK magazine's October cover girl and damn does she look good!

In the mag, she talks about her wild past, how she learned from her mistakes (take note Lindsay!), and being a domestic goddess. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On taking responsibility for her past:
"One thing about me is that I’ve always taken responsibility for my own actions whether they’re good or bad. Even when I was going through my tough time, that was a situation that I created. People ask me, do I blame Hollywood or my parents? No I don’t blame my parents. It had nothing to do with them. I created it and manifested it and I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people."

On learning from past mistakes:
“One thing about me is that I’ve always taken responsibility for my own actions whether they’re good or bad. Even when I was going through my tough time, that was a situation that I created.”

On whether she blames her parents for her early troubles:
“People ask me, do I blame Hollywood or my parents? No I don’t blame my parents. It had nothing to do with them. I created it and manifested it and I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people.”

On regretting some of her tattoos:
“I’m a Virgo and the sign is a virgin,” she explains. “So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it.”

On being a domestic goddess:
“Home-cooked and very, very healthy… and made with love. Well, I don’t have a hat and apron… but I entertain at home a lot. I love cooking for other people.”

On whether becoming a mother changes the way she looks at her body (it doesn’t):
“Being pregnant with Harlow was easy. I was wearing heels for eight months. I never got sick and I was like, ‘Oh, what are people talking about?’ But with Sparrow, I was so sick. And my feet were swelling. They were polar opposite pregnancies.”

On her two-year-old Harlow following in her very fashionable footsteps:
“She picks her own clothes. It’s a 20-minute thing, it begins at 7.30 each morning, but it is what it is and it’s fine.”
