LATEST: Rod Stewart's daughter KIMBERLY is being lined up to replace NICOLE RICHIE in hit reality TV show The Simple Life.

Richie - whose dad is singing legend LIONEL RICHIE - has spent three seasons on the road with best pal Paris Hilton, shooting the riches-to-rags TV show, but now she's moving on to film another proposed reality series with her fiance DJ AM, real name Adam Goldstein.

And TV bosses at the Fox network are reportedly close to finalising a deal with Stewart, a some-time TV presenter for US news and gossip show The Insider, to take her place.

Stewart says, "We can't talk about it. It's top secret... We're in the works with something very special."
