Nicole Still Not so Healthy

Nicole supposedly checked herself into rehab for not having an eating disorder, but is clearly not working hard at getting healthy. She denied collapsing at Hyde last week and has spent a ton of time shopping and hanging out with her on-again friend Paris, so we're just trying to figure out how she can gain some weight in between all these activities. Now we hear more about Nicole partying hard and drinking as well as camping out at the Beverly Hills Hotel. L&S reports:

...But on Nov. 3, that star was Nicole Richie, 25 — and just seven days earlier, she had announced she was seeking treat­ment for her alarming weight loss. Nicole — who weighs just 89 pounds — was with on-again best friend Paris Hilton, 25, and began “knocking back cocktails,” says a witness. “She didn’t look like someone who was taking her recovery very seriously.” And though Nicole later told Life & Style, “I’m doing fine,” she’s done little to change her ways. “We’re just wondering how long it’s going to be before she has a complete physical breakdown,” says an insider. When she’s not clubbing, Nicole’s staying at the luxe Beverly Hills Hotel. “She never talks about a treatment center,” says a friend of hers. “It either doesn’t exist, or she’s being very quiet about it. She’s get­ting some help, but it’s just occasional outpatient counseling. When she’s not in therapy, she’s living her life as if nothing has changed.”Even dad Lionel Richie, 57, is at a loss. “He doesn’t know what it’s going to take for Nicole to get serious about her health,” says a family friend.The answer may lie with her ex-fiancé, Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, 33, who is determined to help Nicole and took her out shopping in LA on Nov. 3. “They’ve been talking a lot,” says an insider. “He’s telling her they can get back togeth­er if she gets better.” But does he mean it? “Maybe,” the insider says. “At this point, he’ll say whatever he has to in order to get through to her.”

It's time for Nicole to check out of the party scene for just a bit and take care of herself. More pics of Nicole as well as Kristin Davis, stylists to the stars, Rachel Zoe and Brad Goreski so

Her poor daddy is trying so hard to help her get back on her feet! Hopefully all that is really just made up. ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

She looks really pretty in the second picture, she still is no where near where she needs to be weight wise though. I love love love her new darker hair color!

She does look to me like she's gained a little weight. I don't see chest bones and her arms look better. Gorgeous dress.

Makeup and pretty clothes can't hide the misery. She will be dead in 5 years.

she's an attention seeking, lost little girl who shows off her 89lb body so people talk about her...even though she does nothing...she's not an actress, a singer, a goodwill ambassador, nothing yet i have to see her 40 year old looking face everywhere. yuck. i am so over her. here's a simple solution, put down the cocaine and pick up a cheeseburger. annoying little girl. "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

I just looked at all the pictures, and I think that Nicole may be getting her boobs back, so maybe she is gaining weight.

I think she looks like *MAYBE* she gained 2 pounds. She does look "old"- like 50 years old. I wonder if she is seeking help? Maybe she is getting outpatient help. I think she is obsessed with the attention she is getting from her "anorexic-look" because she is constantly displaying it. I wonder if she realizes that she is playing with death. If your weight gets too low (even if you are 13 years old), you are at risk for a HEART ATTACK. I think her hair looks pretty, and I like her dress and shoes, but I don't want to give her compliments to feed her eating disorder.

they all do drugs. they all have sex with each others boyfriends and yup sometimes each other. i would say llo, nicole, boz and keira are the absolute worst--as far as drugs. i still cannot believe someone cast both keira and llo in a movie together, the insurance on it must be off the charts unless they both learned how to pass drug tests :)

Mary kate has been seen with these girls too. She also has "anorexia" and got help for it.

Thanks chasingdragon, This would explain her DJ AM break up IMO. It's obvious these women are losing weight not due to anorexia, but to drug use. She got a habit bad. Could be why her and Paris are friends again. JMO and speculation, but I don't buy anorexia for either her, Bosworth or Blohan. They all just up and became anorexics together?

she has been back on drugs for awhile- since when her and llo started hanging out so a few years. started with cocaine and than added heroin back to the mix. she has been lying about being clean for awhile...

Me neither Sashak. We were talking about eating disorders in my class last week and my prof said that. I thought it was very interesting.

BlondeSugar-that is interesting...I never thought of that.

I don't think she looks anorexic here. She has a little bit of the 'bobble-head' look. I hope she gets the help she needs.
lula29 lula29 10 years
I think she's back on drugs. All of them. Blohan, Bosworth and her all have that I'm using thinness to them. Cocaine's back up in a big way.

She is putting her skinniness on display for publicity. She is desperately trying to stay in the tabloids with her "disorde." This is pathetic, Nicole. Why don't you get in the tabloids for, I don't know, talent, maybe? Why don't you do something other than staging a fight with Paris or going to rehab or breaking up with a boyfriend. BTW, one of the Jackass guys told everyone that she just wanted to hang out with him to get the tabloids talking. She is nothing but a walking publicity stunt. Paris does the same thing. Go away Nicole. I'm so sick of you and your BFF Paris.

The dress really helps her look like she has gained weight but she hasn't. Maybe once her hair really starts to fall out from the malnutrition she will eat again!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the hair but not loving the close up...she is still looking a little old...but once she eats and her face puffs out she will be 100% gorgeous again.

Yes, sashak. That could be one of the reasons. Nicole also has an addictive personality. She was hooked on drugs before this and it is very likely to go from one addiction to another. There's also another theory that is very interesting. It's that girls with aneorexia are afraid of their sexuality. When you are so underweight, you don't menstruate, have breasts etc. It's kind of about looking like a little girl, as to not be sexually appealing to men. I don't know if this is her situation, it's just another take on it.

man, seeing her in the picture with Kristin Davis shows just how skinny she is. Kristin looks beautiful and healthy even though she's slim but Nicole just looks scary next to her. Still, Nicole looks like she's gained a couple of pounds but she's got a loooong way to go. i hope she gets some help for real.

Love the hair & shoes but ya'll are right...she looks really old. Nic & Kate Bosworth look horrible. Correct me if I'm wrong but I read somewhere that eating disorders are about control. B/c even if you can't control other things in your life, you can control what goes in your body...

In the industry of fashion or any type of showbiz has pressured many of our stars today. Nicole had to be around Paris Hilton so much she saw the special treatment a smaller person gets compared to a person that has to me weight in good places. Nicole has to go through something dramatic in order for her to wake up and smell the coffee. When Nicole became smaller she was getting more attention than ever and this made her feel good . She thought maybe just a little bit more but believe me her weight loss is not only do to an eating disorder but something more drastic and we all know what it is.
