Nicole Richie Opts for Retail Therapy Over Rehab

Nicole Richie doesn't seem to be too worried about the fact that she can't put on weight. Only three days after she went into rehab at Beau Monde for an eating disorder (she says doesn't exist), she reportedly cut her treatment short to go shopping. Here's more:

The staffers at Beau Monde begged her to stay, reports [Star Magazine], which quotes a source as saying, “Nicole is in complete denial and oblivious to how sick she really is.”

Not long after she checked out of the center, Richie was spotted partying with Lindsay Lohan according to both the Star and another report in In Touch Weekly.

Soon after that she reportedly passed out and had to be carried out of Hyde. But of course, her rep is denying that too. We were so relieved to hear that she was getting help for her eating disorder even if she wasn't ready to call it that yet. I wonder what it will take to get through to her.

I agree. Nicole looked gorgeous at 125lbs! I hope that deciding not to go to rehab(inpatient treatment) works out for her. It is possible to recover without going to rehab. I just hopes she commits to it. It is wrong to judge her for not staying in rehab because we don't really know what is going on. She's an adult and can check herself in and out of rehab. . . not a child that has to stay. I hope that she gets better and gains an adequate amount of weight to live.

My Humble opinion... I really like Nicole... I feel really bad for her though... She is wasting away. She has a sickness and obsession and it is hard for anyone too thin or too fat to try and find help. Cause they don't see it as a problem. These are two extremes and something needs to be done to help everyone and anyone having these problems. Anorexia/bulima and obesity has been around for ages but we are all too closed minded to ever really say anything to help. Until its someone you really love who has these problems... then you start caring... but why not start caring for others who really need someone to say... Be healthy. Love the skin your in but make sure that you are in your BMI. That is healthy. We should all be living healthy lifestyles. I wish Nicole nothing but the best of luck. She looked great at about 125. I think that weight is perfect for her height and body frame.

She didn't gain all kinds of weight after rehab, she was "normal" (what people on other blogs would call fat) before she went to rehab. She looked pretty much the same after. She just dressed really badly back then. She was never a skinny scrawny waif, she was a normal girl with bad fashion sense.

I read somewhere that she dropped to a low of 39kg. Can you believe it? That's like the weight of a 10-year-old child or something. I had no idea it was this bad! ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

yeah, it was beyond hard for me and the rest of my family because she lost everything, daughter, husband, home, car..............she wouldn't come around me because she knew how much it pissed me off and how I couldn't stand the fact that someone would choose drugs over their child and I was ready to tear her a new a**hole!!! But she cleaned up all by herself, and we are happy, and thank you , I always love being a bran new aunt......I have 4 nephews/neices....2 a peice and this one is gonna be a anyway,,,,,thanks.

My Opinion, I'm so happy to hear she is clean and all better. Congratulations to you on being an Aunt soon, and her for being a Mom. :) I knew this guy who used to live in the same apartment complex with us. Everybody that lived there was friends...kind of like Melrose Place, only everybody was nice to each other...we all had a blast at the pool. But anyway, I had no idea this poor guy had a huge crack addiction. His teeth were really dark grey and some fell out. He was never spazy or anything (that is why I never guessed). He ended up telling everyone (well actually a close friend of his did) about his problem. He got clean, and got his teeth fixed. :) Then a few years later he got back on it. It is so sad. He was so smart too (I mean really smart!!). I don't know how he is doing now but, I hope to God better. I love hearing stories about people getting better. Thanks for sharing. That must have been really hard for you, and your family to watch. Again, I'm so happy for her. I wish her all the best!

It is sad BB., my sister was addicted to that garbage for a long time and thank God she wised up!!! She was so boney and her face was so ugly with just oldness and sores....ick..........but..........she finally realized how much of a waste of time crack was and she quit. Now she is extremely healthy and pretty, and yes her teeth started greying a lil , but now she has a bright smile , healthy body, AND she's 6 months pregnant. I think she had her teeth whitened. She wasn't a long term crack head., I'm glad she saw the mistake early.

My Opinion, wow, that is really horrible (crack addiction)! I knew people lost weight from that big time and their teeth too! It's so sad to see people waste away from drugs. :( Thanks for your thoughts. :)

I have no clue BB, I don't know much about pain killers or heroin....but I've seen people on crack that I know personally, and it 'ain't' pretty, all skinny and sores on the face, eeewww.....all I know is Nicole use to be a normal, very nice and sexy size, then she got on the simple life with the ho of the world and got into this weird thinking of 'I have to be skinny like parasite, oh, no, skinnier........and so the story went...............I guess when you're down, you're down, and it takes awhile or a family member or a really hot dude to tell you that you look like a skelital crapzone.
BeachBarbie BeachBarbie 10 years
My Opinion, I thought he was addicted to pain killers? And, wasn't Nicole addicted to heroin..kind of the same? So, I was thinking with this kind of addiction when, you finally stop, you tend to gain weight. :? I don't really know. Just typing. :)
