“I've taken huge leaps and I''m proud of that. I work out, and I get lots of sleep, and so I feel great," she said. Richie, who also owns many clothing lines, has insisted that people should be prepared to work hard if they wish to have a success story of their own.

“You need to study your craft and know it well before you jump in.  “I wait all the time because I don't want to just put my name on something and then release it. What's the point of that?" she added.
