NEW YORK (AP) -- Nicole Richie's Twitter feed has launched her return to television.

The 32-year-old former reality TV star-turned-designer, who is also an author and actress, is heading to VH1.

#CandidlyNicole is based on her popular AOL Web series, which was adapted from her Twitter feed, made up of her musings about everything from parenting to pop culture to random observations.

The VH1 version will feature all new content in eight half-hour episodes premiering July 17.

In an interview last year with The Associated Press, Richie said she was interested in eventually bringing the series to television but viewed an online start as "a nice way to experiment."

Richie starred in the TV series "The Simple Life" with Paris Hilton and was a mentor on NBC's "Fashion Star."
