Nicole's Lame Excuse

Nicole's Lame Excuse

When Nicole got arrested this week she admitted to taking Vicodin before getting behind the wheel. Now she's revealing that the reason she was popping pills was because she gets really bad cramps. So is this the reason she was smoking pot too? She's also upset that the world now thinks she weighs 85 pounds. US Weekly reports:

X17 Online

"She knows she made a mistake, but overall she's in a better place," says a close friend of Richie. "She has come a long way from her heroin days."

The celebutante is said to be upset over media reports that she's addicted to pills, and is insisting to friends that she only "occasionally" takes Vicodin once a month at the start of her menstruation cycle.

Richie is also unhappy that California cops listed her weight at 85 pounds on the police report because "she's so proud of her weight gain," says the source, who adds that Richie has gained about ten pounds in the last two months and actually weighs around 95 pounds. "She doesn't know where the cops came up with 85 pounds and it's annoying to her."

Joel Madden, you know, Hilary Duff's ex has moved on quickly with Nicole. Page Six reports that he has even become her "emergency contact person" in their relationship. Not so sure Nicole should be jumping into a relationship right now especially a serious one. Let's just hope she gets healthy again.

I doubt she even still gets her period. I hate that she keeps making excuses. She's better off not saying anything.

There is no way she weighs 95 lbs. I'm her height and weigh 98 and I am nowhere as skinny as she is.

No one takes vicodin to get rid of bad period cramps take motrin or some damn tynenol.

Ya know, I don't care WHY she was taking vicodin or if she's having her period or not. She was driving under the influence - admitted it - and failed sobriety tests. Ordinary people get their licenses suspended or do jail time for offenses like that. I'm really tired of celebrities getting special treatment by judges and law enforcement.

Nicole shouldn't have been driving. However, she could definitely be having her period at 85 lbs since she's only 5'1". I'm an inch and a half taller than her and weighed 88 lbs for about a year a while back (due to poverty, not voluntary anorexia), and I still had regular periods.

i have to agree with the others here...Nicole's been at 85 (okay - plus or minus a pound) pounds for the last year or so. Maybe it is possible that she occassionally will get her period, but I highly doubt she gets her period regularly, and even if she did, it is even more unlikely that it would be strong enough (cramps &c.) to require Vicodin. Regardless, this in no way excuses driving on the wrong side of the freeway. Nor does it excuse her other chance run-ins with the law. Yes, California does have three-strikes, but they only prosecute on very violent offenders (e.g., drug dealers, rapists, etc.). I have heard that she is only getting charged with a misdemeanor here. I am with you is infuriating that Nicole gets a tap on the hand (yet again) when the reality is she could have killed someone. I think she needs to take a vaca, get some rest, and come back when she's not on drugs (whatever they may be).

I don't think anyone said really skinny girls don't get periods. But Nicole is 85 pounds....that is beyond really skinny.

NOT A LAME EXCUSE! some girls get really sick EVERY period. i know this because i am one of them who always misses work/school/social stuff because i am barfing and/or passing out from the pain and can't get out of bed for 2 days. regulars meds [ex: "advil" *rolls eyes* ]do NOTHING for girls with bad cramps. if you have bad cramps/ endometriosis you know believe me. [it is not uncommon to have to take morphine shots, vicodin etc...for BAD CRAMPS]

agreed. I think it should be a mandatory lose your license when you're caught driving under the influence. no ifs ands or buts. People like this are why I take the train and don't drive.

It's a serious offence she could have caused a major accident, so she shd have her license taken away forever, and put in jail for thr drugs and self-denial, maybe the prison food would fatten her up. *sorry to be so nasty, but she is really deluded*
