Nicole Richie has been offered the lead role of Roxie Hart in the Broadway production of Chicago, which says a lot about Chicago's standards.
Richie, 26, who welcomed daughter Harlow Madden with boyfriend Joel Madden on January 12, is undecided as to whether she'll accept.
"She is definitely interested and weighing it out with the timing of the baby," a Richie pal tells Us Weekly. "It is in the super early stages of discussions and no decision has been made yet."
"It would give her a reason to really show her talent and to stay in the new place in New York [Joel Madden] just got," the source says.
"It also shows people are really excited about Nicole right now."
Nicole has talent? People are excited by it? Where the heck have we been?
Whatever Nicole Richie's decision, this year will be big for the new mom.
"Nicole is also weighing some other amazing offers but 2008 is going to be really exciting for her," the source says. "She's just trying to work it all out and keeping Harlow in mind with everything she does, of course!"
If she turns it down, Chicago, perhaps Britney Spears is available...
