In an interview with People, Nicole talked about parenting in the pandemic. “I’ve just learned to listen, to really take a pause and listen. I’ve always stressed that going outside and being in nature is important, but it really became a true necessity once everyone was locked into their computers, Zoom work, all of the things. We really had to make an effort to go outside and be in nature and connect to the earth. I think that is something we have to prioritise in our lives,” she said, adding that she was ‘proud’ of her kids for adjusting to school and life during the pandemic.
Nicole shot to fame with the reality series The Simple Life, in which she starred alongside her childhood friend and fellow socialite Paris Hilton. The show aired from 2003 to 2007.
