Find out the shocking ways these celebs earned their fame!

Nicole Richie

Richie can give credit to bestie, Paris Hilton, for her appearance on Hilton’s reality show The Simple Life. Richie seems to spend most of her life in the headlines rather than working. While she has now turned her life around since those party days, it’s all that drama that helped make her famous. She was constantly found getting wasted, arrested for multiple things including heroin possession, a DUI and driving on a suspended license. The socialite has now reinvented herself as a fashionista, married Joel Madden and had two children.
