PS i'm hoping nicole richie can manage to pull herself together - i do like her a lot more than her cohort paris hilton! plus i still love the little exchange we had at the four seasons hotel over in beverly hills...
an emaciated-looking nicole richie is back in rehab where she's being treated for an eating disorder and substance abuse.
in a joint newsgathering operation the national enquirer and star magazine have learned exclusively that the troubled reality tv star checked into the beau monde treatment center in corona del mar, california on may 11 to deal with anorexia and an addiction to pills.
when she arrived at the clinic, the 5-foot-2 celebutante weighed a shocking 83 pounds and was in tears that she had once again lost control of her life, says an insider.
"nicole's been a mess for months," said another source. "her weight has plummeted."
insiders say nicole spent her first few days "detoxing" at the posh residential rehab, and then began treatment on an out-patient basis.
on the morning of may 19, the national enquirer and star observed nicole entering beau monde with an overnight bag.
she pulled up in her mercedes g wagon at about 10 am
