Nicole's in Rehab - But Does NOT Have an Eating Disorder

Nicole's in Rehab - But Does NOT Have an Eating Disorder

Nicole has checked herself into rehab, but is making it crystal clear that it is not for an eating disorder. She lashed out at the press for falsely reporting that she had checked herself in a few weeks ago, but is now seeking help "to undergo diagnostic treatment to determine why she's not been putting on any weight." E! Online reports:

The 25-year-old reality TV star has checked herself into an undisclosed private facility, her publicist exclusively tells E! News, "to undergo diagnostic treatment to determine why she's not been putting on any weight."

"She is working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition," says the rep. "It is important to Nicole that she achieve this goal in a healthy way, [but] this is not a treatment for an eating disorder."

Turns out this rehab stint will delay the new season of The Simple Life where Paris and Nicole are actually friends. What we don't understand is why Nicole needs to insist on not having an eating disorder. Everyone and their mother has watched her waste away this past year. We hope the center can help Nicole pack on the pounds and get healthy again. Maybe this is why she was hanging out with her ex and still good friend, DJ AM. Good luck girl!

Well, we'll never know for a fact just what the hell's wrong with her until it comes out of her own mouth (*cough*much like all the food she eats*cough*)...but think about this: when Mary-Kate Olsen checked into, as those wily celeb reps like to put it, a "facility for an undisclosed condition/treatment/dishwater enema/whatever", she vehemently denied what everyone already knew: an eating disorder. Well, pull my pants down and slap my ass with a leather belt! A complete shock! So, Nicole's checked into a facility to figure out "why she's not gaining weight". I'm no doctor, but when someone has a difficult time gaining weight, they schedule an appointment with their doctor. Maybe do a test or two. They don't check themselves into REHAB. Plain and simple. Really, does she think people are idiots? The only other POSSIBILITY I can think of at the moment is some type of drug addiction that causes notable weight-loss (methamphetamine, only an example, not an allegation). But I highly doubt it.

i'm thinking that maybe she does have some medical condition. something like crohn's disease and they don't want to talk about it.

*Sssh!* i think it does have to do w/ a ED. Who knows...celebs know how to play crafty mind games!

sashak ... You're totally right. A lot of people who have eating disorders gain them because they lose control over one part of their life so much that they start to look at their "imperfections" more critically. They feel if they cannot control things in their life they have lost touch of then they can at least control these things about themselves they are unhappy with.

I think she doesn't wnat to admit to an ED at this point cuz she has denied it for so long, and probably doesn't want to look like a liar, y'know? But even if she denied it for so long, I don't see anything wrong w/ her finally admitting it. That way, she can get better and be a good example to those who have ED's. She is not a bad person for struggling w/ her weight, but she seems to be a liar for manipulating the media for so long (going on several shows saying she doesn't have an ED). Well, I'm glad she's getting help. An ED isn't an issue that makes a person bad, it is a struggle- a very difficult one that goes much deeper than appearance. Congrats Nocole for seeking help before it's too late!

I wish her the best. I'm not sure what difference it should make to anyone whether or not they believe the "story." She obviously has a problem with her weight. It could be thyroid (which is not as easily diagnosed as one might think), it could be drugs, it could be... whatever. She doesn't owe any of us an explanation, but if she didn't give one, we sure as heck would make up SOMEthing. Good luck, Nic!

This is so ridiculous. I don't think she actually has an eating disorder. She has a fame disorder. An attention seeking disorder. She's just discovered starving herself is a great way to get attention.

I have heard that eating disorders are really control in your weight is one thing that you have absolute control over. I don't know if its true, its just something I heard, but it is interesting. She could be entering a program for mental health issues...Rehab is not just for drugs & alcohol...

i heard nicole richie actually got her stomach stapled and that is why she dropped such weight. now she is freaked out cause she is all skin and bones but she does eat and wants to gain some weight back. if she does have an eating disorder shame on the people for calling her gross. when is the last time you heckled an overweight person and said how gross they are and how they should not eat something. either way its her demons and i feel for her but atleast she seems to be trying to get better. and honestly she is probably going to rehab because that is one way to keep things quieter about what is going on. how many stories have we heard from what happened while so and so was at rehab versus how many stories have leaked from hospitals and doctors... just a point to ponder.

What will they do in a rehab that they won't do anywhere else? Force her to eat like every hour. It just doesn't make sense.

She and her team lie about everything.
Twinkle1 Twinkle1 10 years
Does she really need to pay someone to tell her the reason she's not gaining weight is because she's either not eating or is purging what she does eat? But I suppose it could be a big ass tape worm. :oy:
