Nicole Richie is crazy about dieting

nicole richie

It’s a shame to see that Nicole Richie seems to be falling back into some pretty bad patterns when it comes to her health and diet. Obviously I don’t know the girl so I have no idea what her skeletal frame is due to – whether it’s an eating disorder, cocaine, a metabolism that seems to have gone off the charts seemingly out of nowhere, other health problems, etc. It’s pretty well-known within the Hollywood community, however, that she’s got a problem when it comes to food – and it’s apparently one she’s passing on to her kids, unfortunately :(

From Showbiz Spy (via National Enquirer):

“Joel likes to treat their kids to a burger or an ice cream cone once a week, but Nicole won’t allow it anymore,” revealed a source.

“She even brings her self-harvested produce and hard-boiled eggs from her hens to restaurants and insists that chefs make her meals with them.”

Nicole — who is mom to daughter Harlow, 6, and son Sparrow, 4 — insists that eating by her rules is the only way to ensure that her family isn’t being exposed to dangerous pesticides or genetically modified foods. She currently grows apples, blueberries, lemons, strawberries, butter lettuce, arugula, snap peas, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, mint, thyme, oregano and sage at the family’s California home.

“Although she has always denied eating disorders, Nicole’s friends can’t help but wonder whether she’s slipping into the grips of one now,” the source noted.

“Joel is at his wits’ end over her weird food ways and even more concerned that she’s passing on her quirky habits to their kids.”

Look, newspapers print absolute bullshit all the time, and there’s certainly a pretty large percentage of a chance that this is just that. However, from what little I know about her, it doesn’t seem all that far-fetched. I just hope she can get herself together soon, for her sake and for her kids.

American Music Awards Outfits: The Best, Worst, And WTF


The American Music Awards happened and I don’t think anyone really cared that much, but here’s your outfit recap, just in case. Yeah, it’s a day late. Honestly, who really cares?

So here’s the outfits, a touch late, but we can still have fun oooo-ing and aaaah-ing and WTF-ing. Which is what I’ll need your help with. I want you to pick the best, worst, and most WTF outfit of the night. Here we go!

Here’s Nicole Richie Rapping About Gluten-Free Spaghetti

Yes, this is a thing. Nicole Richie loves gluten-free spaghetti (of course she does) so much that she’s felt the need to rap about it. She apparently really likes rap music, so she’s decided to make a go of it herself, and spaghetti is the first thing she thought to write about for her web series, #CandidlyNicole.

If you think I’m kidding, think again – she’s currently putting together her “Nikki Rich” mixtape with some dude called Ebone Hoodrich (not his birth name, one would assume). Here’s an amazing line from the song

“Now, normally when I’m home I make a lot of gluten-free dishes… like ‘chillin in my crib makin’ gluten-free spaghetti”

Yup. Cute, I guess?

Stars Go Punk At The Met Gala: See The Best And Worst

anne hathaway met gala punk

Anne Hathaway actually blew me away with her punk transformation for the Costume Institute Gala for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum (or Met Gala for short). Doesn’t she look great as a blonde? Every year celebs dress to the hilt for the event for whatever the theme is. This year, it’s punk. So keep that in mind when looking at these photos — these looks are supposed to be crazy and over the top.

BEST: Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Sienna Miller

WORST: Almost everyone else, but especially Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kim Kardashian and honestly there were so many more I couldn’t even deal with.

PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY: Miley Cyrus and Anne Hathaway

Because wow. Motherhood and marriage and, you know, maturity have done amazing things for this girl right here, guys.

These photos were taken at the 2012 FiFi Awards, which is held annually to honor the best in the year’s fragrances, held in New York City each year. Here’s a shortlist of the “important” winners, but you can check out other categories and their winners here.

I’m a smell-junkie. Seriously. I’m a candle, lotion, perfume freak. And I love that two of my favorite fragrance designers won in their respective categories this year, and those two designers would be Chanel and Tom Ford. See, my three staple fragrances are Chanel’s Mademoiselle, Tom Ford’s Black Orchid (ohmygod have you ever), and Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue, even though that’s, like, *so* 2001. I also love Theirry Mugler’s Angel, but ever since I saw that stupid promo that Eva Mendes did for Angel, I’m a bit turned off and, truth be told, it’s probably the subconscious reason that I haven’t bought Angel in probably a year or more. Ugh, right? You know you’re in a bad way when Eva Mendes dictates your personal preferences.

But anyway. Doesn’t Nicole Richie just look darling?

Joel Madden Asked Nicole Richie to Marry Him Ten Times

A photo of Joel Madden and Nicole Richie

I know, I know: Joel Madden and Nicole Richie, what is this, 2009? First of all, quit being such smart asses, you guys, and second of all, this is an interesting little story, so suck it up while I tell you about the epic tale of the romance between that one guy from Good Charlotte and Paris Hilton’s former BFF.

Here, I’ll give you a brief timeline so you guys have everything in place for this story, all right? Joel and Nicole started dating in 2006, and they had their daughter, Harlow, in 2008. Then, in 2009, Nicole gave birth to their son, Sparrow. It wasn’t until 2010 that the couple finally got married.

Now, I’m obviously not saying that you have to be married in order to have a family or a legitimate relationship, not at all, but when a couple doesn’t follow that pattern, I think it’s natural to wonder. That’s why people always went on and on about Brad and Angelina when they were together several years and had several children with no hint of marriage. It’s not a reprehensible course of action by any means – do what works for you and makes you happy – but there’s usually a reason why.

So what was the reason for Nicole and Joel? Basically, Nicole would never say yes:

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And again. And again. And again. And again…

Just ask Joel Madden.

The 33-year-old Good Charlotte rocker admitted to Aussie radio show Fifi & Jules on Friday that it took nearly a dozen tries to getFashion Star stunner Nicole Richie, 30, to agree to holy matrimony prior to their weddingin 2010.

“My wife is pretty good at rejecting me … people don’t know this,” he said. “But I asked her to marry me 10 times before she actually said yes — I was asking every other Tuesday.”

The show’s host Jules Lund asked Madden, “What made that tenth one different? How did she break? What did you bring out that was different?”

“I pulled out the kids!” he said of their two daughters, Harlow, 4, and Sparrow, 3. “I said, ‘Do you really wanna do this to these kids?’ I’m just kidding. I’m passive aggressive.”

Man. I’m sure it’s all about knowing the person you’re with, but if I got turned down that many times, or even once, I’d probably be a little devastated. Like, I could see myself having a bit of a meltdown and screaming really embarrassing things like “what do you want from me?!” and “am I not good enough for you?!” and “you don’t think I’m pretty anymore!” Joel Madden here seems really chill about the whole thing though, and their marriage is doing just fine, so I guess it wasn’t that big a deal.

What do you guys think? Would you hang out while your significant other repeatedly turned you down?

Quotables: Nicole Richie Remembers Paris Hilton ‘Fondly’

“I have fond memories of that time. I was doing a show with my best friend and we didn’t really have to do much. We were just being ourselves – and playing it up for the cameras.”

No, Paris didn’t die of complications sustained in a massive STD strike, Nicole‘s just talking about the days of yesteryear when she was about eighty pounds heavier, loaded up on coke and Coke and blue cheese all of the time, and getting arrested for driving the wrong way down a highway was the highlight of the week. Whee!

Also, I wonder if Paris is the least bit bitter that Nicole’s career has taken off way more than hers ever has – or will. I never really watched the show, but any time I did see it, it was like Paris was always kind of demeaning Nicole, even though they were “best friends.” Nicole was always the “fat” one, the “awkward” one, the one who never really fit in, no matter how many fruity alcoholic beverages she consumed and guys she blew. It was almost kind of sad to watch, and honestly, it’s probably pretty humiliating for Nicole to even talk about those days, though every interview she does probably wants to discuss it since it’s one of the, um, higher points of girlfriend’s career.

I don’t know about you, but other than hearing Richie’s a grand old bitch with a flair for the mean, she’s loads better than Paris – and loads better off too, and if that’s the lesser of two evils, I’ll totally take it.

Check out the photos from Nicole’s recent Ocean Drive photo shoot.
