Who is Nicole James?
Nicole James is a friend of Heather Dubrow’s, who is thought to have filmed several episodes as a full-time housewife initially.
However, the mother-of-two is now a ‘friend of housewives’ on RHOC.
Heather revealed she has been friends with Nicole for eight years, revealing she was drawn to Nicole’s good mood and fun personality.
Shannon revealed that she already knew Nicole as their daughters were in pre-school together, but didn’t seem too keen on the new Bravo star.
Nicole isn’t happy with the breast augmentation Terry Dubrow performed on her years ago, which is said to be the reason she’s no longer on the show.
Did Nicole James date Kid Rock?
Housewife Shannon revealed that Nicole dated Kid Rock, shortly after his split from Pamela Anderson, but the newbie never confirmed this.
She said they began dating immediately after the musician’s divorce, adding that she didn’t want Nicole and Heather together.
Kid Rock and Pamela originally split in 2003, but later reconciled, before they later got divorced in 2006.
However, reports say that Kid Rock started dating Audrey Berry after finalizing his divorce from Pamela. The couple had a low-key relationship.
They were seen cosying up together a lot of times, despite Kid Rock never talking about his girlfriend publicly.
