9780061137334: The Truth About Diamonds: A Novel

In her electrifying first novel, Nicole Richie tells the sensational story of Chloe Parker, a rock royalty princess and a card-carrying member of Hollywood's inner circle. At the age of seven, Chloe was adopted by a music superstar and his wife, transforming her life from rags to riches. What followed was a wild childhood distinguished by parties with movie stars and rock idols, run-ins with the press and the police, and a subsequent stint in rehab.

Suddenly Chloe shoots to instant fame as a spokesmodel for a national ad campaign. When her long-lost birth father appears out of nowhere and her best friend betrays her, she must struggle to keep it all together -- her sobriety, her friendships, and her integrity despite the betrayals of those around her. Ultimately, Chloe comes spectacularly into her own, achieving stardom in her own right and finding true love.

Through the eyes of the captivating Chloe and the talented voice of Nicole Richie, we are given a no-holds-barred look at Hollywood's new elite, behind the velvet ropes, inside star-studded premieres and parties. Whether they're doing the "circuit" (begin with shopping at Barneys New York, Marni, and Fred Segal, then end with the grilled vegetable salad at the Ivy), or ending up on the front page of your favorite weekly magazine, Chloe Parker and her fellow A-listers never fail to dazzle, their larger-than-life dramas more riveting than any reality show.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. As the adopted daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie has led a life of privilege among Hollywood s elite. But despite its glamorous trappings, Nicole s life has been anything but charmed. At twenty-three, she has survived a virtual combat zone of youth; facing adoption, divorce, drug addiction, a very public arrest and subsequent time in rehab. In this novel, the first of two in a series, Nicole takes readers behind the scenes to the real world of young Hollywood royalty, a world that no one knows better. The names have been changed but the stories are true, and the fabulously young, rich and famous characters in this story are real people with more drama in their lives than the characters they portray on TV and in public.
