Nicole constantly showed up late, and once she arrived she would impose a deadline on producers, saying “You’ve got me for an hour or two.”
Her diva behavior upped to another level during the final shoot of the season, when the all-important “show open” was being taped. Nicole turned up “several hours late” with boyfriend Joel Madden, and then gave producers another impossible deadline. After a serious blow-out argument, producers had to call her agents just to get her to stay on-set.
According to Nicole’s rep, stories like these have been floated since production began. She says Nicole was a professional on the set and discrepancies in call and wrap times were par for the course. Nicole’s rep makes it clear that the season wrapped on time and on schedule.
