Who knew Nicole Richie had that much talent?
According to Us Weekly, Nicole has been offered the lead role in Chicago on Broadway! The new mom would have her name in lights, as Roxie Hart, but the mag says Nic is still undecided if she should go for it.
"She's definitely interested and weighing it out with the timing of the baby," a friend said. "It is in the super early stages of discussions and no decision has been made yet."
"It would give her a reason to really show her talent and to stay in the new place in NY Joel just got," the source said. "It also shows people are really excited about Nicole right now."
Apparently Nicole can sing and dance (though we've never had the pleasure to see that, other than during her Middle America clubbing stint on The Simple Life) and has been working on album for years.
But Nic has lots of stuff to think about before committing to the grueling schedule of Broadway.
"She is also weighing some other amazing offers but 2008 is going to be really exciting for her," her pal said. "She just working it all out and keeping Harlow in mind with everything she does, of course."
Would you go see Nicole in Chicago? I would be really intrigued.
