Nicole Richie: I'd Like To Remove My 'Butt Crack Cross' Tramp Stamp

04/30/2013 at 05:28 PM ET

If you ever wanted to watch The Simple Life with Paris Hilton on mute — because Nicole Richie is just that hilarious — have we got good news for you.

The Fashion Star judge (and mom of two) let cameras follow her around for a new AOL web series, #CandidlyNicole, comprising 20 vignettes based on her delightful Twitter account.

In the debut episode, Richie visits L.A.’s Dr. Tattoff tattoo removal clinic to see how hard it would be to get rid of the “tramp stamp” (her words!) she got as a teenager.

“I was 16 and an idiot and didn’t want my parents to see, you know?” she tells the doctor, adding in an aside, “It just means a certain thing and I don’t want to be part of that group.”

We’d tell you more, but we think Richie says it best in her own words. Warning: If you’re watching at work, you may find your coworkers asking why those Excel spreadsheets are so hilarious.

Tell us: Are you excited to watch the rest of #CandidlyNicole?

People call it tramp stamp because of the girls that usually get them in that spot!

Wow! Nicole is so tiny! Those jeans are just hanging off her! I’d be surprised if she weighs 90 lbs. It is nice and healthy to be thin . . . but once you get too thin, you kinda start looking like a plucked chicken!

Rockyroad you’re a flippin moron! Start out with an inner LIP tattoo? rofl. The POINT of a tattoo is to show it off, and for it to be personable so people will ask you your story. I have 8 tattoos and you can see them all depending on what I’m wearing. I’d not hide mine, because I’m not ashamed of them. If you’re ashamed of a tattoo and get it to hide it you shouldn’t get one in the first place. My only advice to people that want tattoos—don’t get a “fad” and get it somewhere you want, not where your friends have it or where your friends want it. RR if you got your lip tattoo for YOU that’s awesome, but don’t recommend that to others.

I am actually proud of Nicole. She shook off her crazy friendship with Paris Hilton and then transformed herself from an entitled, boozing and drugging party girl, to a responsible wife and mother to her two kids. I am not mad at her. ♥ Nicole!

It’s Dr. Will from Big Brother!

@Melissa, I agree with you that the Rockyroad is a complete moron, but the point of a tattoo is not to show it off. I’m not ashamed of my tattoos either (5, all but 2 are hidden by clothes 95% percent of the time) but I got them to represent personal and meaningful points in my life that I want to remember, not so that people would ask me about them.

this was not at all funny, nor clever, nor entertaining. it also felt incredibly staged.

@ashley….will kirby from BB is a dermatologist that specializes in tattoo removals (I’m pretty sure he didn’t get into the removal business full time until a couple of years ago.)

Now there is an entirely new medical sub-specialty:,,tattoo removal. I hope all those people who are getting tattoos today think carefully. Getting the tattoo takes minutes. Getting it removed takes months to years. I assume that removal is far more expensive than getting the original tattoo. Can you imagine how a butterfly, for example, looks on a 75 year old body? It’s beautiful at age 20 but looks like a dead and deformed moth at 75. Think before you ink.
