Well, if you believe the tabloids, Nicole Richie is an 88-pound anorexic who’s surviving solely on sunflower seeds. I’ll give this to Star, the picture above is scary (from what I’ve heard the picture is from 2006). BUT we have got to stop devoting magazines to how celebrities look. Fat, skinny, cellulite, botox, plastic surgery, old, young, it’s just getting to be too much. I would die if someone took a hard look at one of my bad pictures – and then made it a magazine cover. Here’s more from Star:
Nicole Richie is back to skinny. The reality star turned designer has dropped down to 88 pounds, according to Star magazine, which was her weight in 2006 when she memorably showed off a bony frame as she jogged on a beach in a bikini.
And there’s proof in pictures: On Tuesday the 32-year-old showed off a gaunt face with a heavily defined jaw bone as she attended Antonio Berardi’s dinner in Beverly Hills. Star claimed the daughter of Lionel Richie is ‘anorexic again.’
She has reportedly been living on a diet of sunflower seeds, celery and juices. The LA native also allegedly uses chewing gum to stave off hunger pains.
Part of the problem Star explained, might be that husband Joel Madden is often away for work. The musician has been a coach on The Voice in Australia.
‘Joel has always tried to keep tight tabs on her diet,’ the source added. ‘But since he’s gone so often, no one’s ever really sure how much she’s eating anymore. He is extremely worried about her. He tells her that she needs to focus on her health for the sake of the children, because they need their mother. When Joel confronts her on how she needs to ingest more nutrients, she says the juices give her all she needs.’
But a friend tells MailOnline the Fashion Star judge is ‘healthy.’ The source added: ‘This is completely false, she is not anorexic.’
Here are some pictures of Nicole NOT from 2006. Yes, she’s skinny. But c’mon, she’s always been tiny-ish.
