WATCH: Nicole Richie Accidentally Gets Slapped in the Face During Interview

Nicole Richie better have her boxing gloves on from here on out.

The 35-year-old fashion designer was in the middle of an interview with "Talk Stoop" when host Cat Greenleaf accidentally gave Richie a run for her money by punching her on the side of her face!

The two were discussing the exciting news that Los Angeles was getting some much-needed rain, which prompted a high five gone horribly wrong. The host was mortified, to say the least, but Richie took it like a champ and continued on in style. Greenleaf then asked Richie for a fun-fact about herself (after she dished that hers is clumsiness, of course) to which Richie joked, "I was just abused two seconds ago."

After the awkward moment, Richie and the "Talk Stoop" host were left to discuss the mother-of-two's upcoming spot in NBC's Great News. This will be Richie's first scripted role to date, where she'll play Portia, a modern take on the traditional news anchor.
