Hilights from the Marie Claire interview with Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie has recently spoke to Marie Claire magazine for their March 2010 isssue. Nicole is loooking fabulous in their spring spread, see the photoshoot here.

"Clothing was something I always wanted to do," Richie tells the magazine. "I've been pulling tear sheets from magazines since I was a little girl."

As for juggling two kids while trying to grow a fashion empire, which includes a jewelry line, the fashion brand House of Harlow 1960 and the soon-to-be-released Winter Kate clothing and footwear collections, Nicole says it's not a problem.

"I'm a Virgo and I'm really good at scheduling. So there are 24 hours in a day and I'm up at 6:30 am every day anyway," she reveals, before explaining she doesn't rely on a live-in nanny like most A-listers. "Not full-time, but I do have someone that helps me right now and, well, I have my mom, who's here."

Aside from fashion, Nicole Richie also discussed rumors that her super-slim frame is due to an eating disorder. - "I definitely felt it was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don't," she says of the media coverage over the last few years. "It's extremely insulting and irresponsible. An eating disorder is serious and it's a disease, and I don't think you can lightly say that someone has a disease unless they're openly telling you that they do."
"I have been very honest with my friends, my family and also with the public about the mistakes that I've made and the challenges that I've gone through," she continued. "And I have said many times, 'Listen, if I had an eating disorder, I would tell you and I would talk to you about it.'"

By way of explaining her tiny frame so soon after giving birth to son Sparrow James Midnight Madden last September, she offers: "I'm nursing and he's a big boy, so..."

Nicole also tells Marie Claire that she's got more on her plate than just her fashion ventures, revealing she's interested in launching a music career, writing another book (her 2006 book "The Truth About Diamonds" was a The New York Times bestseller), and starring as a young woman balancing work and home life in a television sitcom she's developing for ABC.

"I think that ten years ago someone would probably have said I was crazy to want so many occupations," she tells the magazine. "But artists like Beyoncé have paved the way, going from music to acting to designer, and I have a ton of respect for people like that."

Didn't she post a picture on her twitter and say she was doing a shoot for Instyle? Is she going to be in Instyle or on the cover of that magazine?
