Nicole Richie Is Not Anorexic

Nicole strikes back! When a nasty paparazzo yelled at her to eat, she stood up for herself and then called US Weekly to tell the tale. The only thing she is sick about is being told to eat. Of course the pictures in Star this week tell a different story. Here's more from US:

On the afternoon of August 12, Nicole Richie finally reached her boiling point. As the actress and a friend exited the Planet Blue boutique in Malibu, California, a photographer yelled out to her, “Nicole, you look disgusting. Gain some f—cking weight!” A little while later, a shaken Richie walked right up to the photographer’s window and, in tears, verbally confronted him. Richie talked to Us’s Ken Baker about what made her snap, how she’s taking control of her life and her hopes for a healthy and successful future.

“You don’t scream at people that they are overweight, so what makes people think that they have the right to scream at me that I am underweight? It’s upsetting and mean,” Nicole tells Us. “I am not anorexic. At the moment, I was just sick of everyone constantly bothering me about how I look. I walked up to the photographer and told him, ‘What if I really had anorexia? What if I had a disease? How would you feel about saying such horrible things?’ He probably just wanted to get a rise out of me, but I’m a human being and he hurt my feelings.”
