*Nicole Richie has returned to her reality show roots with the debut of her new online series “Candidly Nicole.”

Lionel Richie’s daughter first stepped into the spotlight when she appeared on TV’s “ The Simple Life” with her socialite BFF Paris Hilton. Now, cameras are following her again for a new AOL digital mini-series.

In the premiere episode, she visits a specialist to get the “tramp stamp” tattoo on her lower back removed, joking, “It just means a certain thing, and I don’t want to be part of that group.” She goes on to reveal she had her first ink done in a garage when she was just 14 years old, but the Chinese “love symbol” design apparently didn’t mean what it was supposed to.

Richie eventually opts out of the removal process, insisting, “I’m not going back every two months. That’s too much upkeep. But I’m hoping that in maybe 10 years when it’s really embarrassing that they’ll have new technology.”
