In her show #CandidlyNicole, Nicole Richie made a special Father’s Day episode with her father (and amazing musician) Lionel Richie and sister Sofia Richie.
It was extraordinarily awkward.
As a present to their father, Sofia and Nicole went to his house to garden with him, a hobby that is apparently very close to his heart. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like his daughters share his fondness for plants. It definitely seemed like they had never gardened in their lives.

This in itself isn’t that awkward. We’ve all done things we’re no good at to bond with a parent. It’s a ritual. A ritual we all hate.
It was the weird things Nicole was saying to her father that made things (and him) awkward.
Here are a few examples:
Nicole described one branch of a bush as “sticking out like a tampon.”
About her dad, she said, “You have so much energy for an old person.” Who doesn’t like to be called old!
The best part was when she asked her father something few daughters ask: “How many women have you been with since you’ve been divorced?”
Gross. Just. Gross.
