Nicole Accepts Responsibility With Joel By Her Side

The first segment of Nicole Richie's interview with Diane Sawyer aired on Good Morning America today, and here's the highlight reel. For most of the interview, Joel was by Nicole's side, holding her hand and chiming in at points, even admitting that he thought about breaking up with Nicole after her DUI since they had only been dating a few weeks at that point. Instead, here they are talking about their first "parent moment" watching a special on drunk driving. Back in December when Nic was driving the wrong way down the 134 who would've thought we'd ever hear a demure Nicole saying "I owe my life to my baby." Still pretty surreal.

To see one more clip of Nicole talking about that night and how it never occurred to her that her driving would be impaired (genius) just

She actually seems sorry...and mature. That's a little weird. Joel's still fug, though. There's no getting around that.

Watching the interview was really interesting....she's obviously an intelligent girl, meaning she has managed to take her reality 'stardom' to different heights, however, I do question her motives at times...she seems remorseful, but I'm questioning her character because this is also the same person who thinks teacing little girls to stick up the middle finger and sticking white actresses in blackface...I'm on the fence with her...time will tell

I just watched the video on the interview and I think Nicole has really learnt her lessons. I feel that having a baby could really help her to change her wild ways cos now, she has to set good examples for her child. I was hoping the pregnancy wouldnt be true, but now that it is, I'm happy that Nicole is ready to handle it and change her life around. She's smart, and she's got lots of people around to help her so hopefully, things are taking a turn for the better now. Go, Nicole!!

It is so crazy that she is pregnant. I am worried about her and her baby. She has doesn't have a good history and doesn't weigh a lot. I wish her well.

And obviously Joel doesn't have any standards anymore for the women he dates. How could any self-respecting person date another person who did not know doing marijuana could affect your driving?

It's all for the cameras. I still don't believe in her. And of course she's not afraid of jail. The kind of jail she's going to where she'll be getting special treatment I'm sure wont be anything like a REAL jail.

At least she seems sorry. I love that Joel laughs when she says that she didn't think any of the things she had taken were going to affect her driving.

As a user in popsugar says (I don't know her name but if you are reading this gime a shout out) jesus take the wheel. I hope and pray she is serious. I do however see a lot more sincerety in her than I do in paris.

She definitely seems sincere about her mistake. It was a huge one and I think she finally gets that. I've always liked Nicole and knew that she would be a whole hell of a lot more mature about this then Paris. No excuses, show up on time for court, own up to mistake and take your punishment. Good for her. I wish her, Joel and the baby well.

Sorry....I meant "this is nothing but a DEADLY (not dealy) trend lately. And I so believe in that just like a lot of other people.

She is just to get off like Lane Garrison. He killed somebody and all he is about to get is 90 days. What a crock of ****. I don't believe anything that any of them say. They want lighter sentencing and pity from the public. She needs prison like Lohan does. She'll do drugs or drink while pregnant, but we'll never know about because she will continue to do snowball interviews. Her interviews are not fooling anyone. Next Lohan will appear and do her good service add like Lane, or a pity interview and magazine cover like this one. This is nothing but a dealy trend lately.

I really like Nicole. She seems to have matured over the past few months/years and she has learned her lesson. I hope she has a happy life.

Honestly, I hate her but I wish her the best. I still can't believe she is going to be a parent considering she can't even take care of herself.
