Nicole Richie Claims She Pops Vicodin to Treat Menstrual Cramps, Disputes Weight in Police Report

by at . Comments

In a late bid for Worst Lie of the Year, Nicole Richie is telling friends that the reason she was on Vicodin during her recent arrest was to treat menstruation cramps.

Riiiight. Because every woman treats menstrual cramps with illegally-obtained, hard-core prescription painkillers. Come on, Nicole. Is that the best you can do?

Nicole's arrest came early Monday morning for driving under the influence of marijuana and Vicodin, after she was seen driving the wrong direction down a California freeway. This wonderful Nicole Richie mug shot followed.

Vicodin is an opiate and Richie's involvement with the drug raises concern because she was once hooked on heroin, and former addicts who dabble in other drugs risk relapse. Earlier today, we learned that Richie had not only a prior DUI arrest from 2002 but entered drug rehab back in 2003.

"She knows she made a mistake, but overall she's in a better place," says a close friend of Richie. "She has come a long way from her heroin days."

If that unnamed close friend of Richie is Paris Hilton, we all know how credible that skank is. When a walking train wreck like Britney Spears decides it's not good for her image to be seen with you, that says a lot.

Nicole is said to be upset over media reports that she's addicted to pills, and is insisting to friends that she only "occasionally" takes Vicodin once a month at the start of her menstruation cycle.

Richie is also unhappy that California cops listed her weight at 85 pounds on the police report because "she's so proud of her weight gain," says the source, who is losing credibility by the second, and adds that Richie has gained "about 10 pounds" in the last two months and actually weighs around 95.

"She doesn't know where the cops came up with 85 pounds and it's annoying to her."

Sure thing, babe. Anyway, below are some nice Nicole Richie pictures you might enjoy. On the right, she's out and about this week after her arrest. On the left, she's partying with a pal, who's passing her a bowl, earlier this year. Everybody go smoke up!

This is really old but i've stumbles across it anyway. Umm i know at least 2 girls from my boarding prep school who were on Vico and Perco for severe period cramps...(one was on one one was on the other). It isn't unusual for privileged people to obtain big time perscriptions for lifes bumps and bruises. That said, i'm sure even if she did have period cramps, i doubt she was using the persrciption the way it was intended (drinking on Vico, smoking bud on Vico, perhaps snorting the Vico)...but still, the writer of this article is probably a guy who has never dealt with period cramps or else the basis of this article wouldn't be how ridiculous it is to need muscle relaxants for period cramps.

Some people have underlying medical conditions that cause them to have severe menstrual cramping. Endometriosis and ovarian cysts can cause debilitating pain that is sometimes worse than childbirth. I have two prescriptions for my cramps. One for 600mg Motrin when I have moderate pain and the other for Vicodin when the pain is severe. To give you an idea of the level of pain that constitutes the need for Vicodin, last month I was rushed to the emergency room after collapsing from what felt like someone trying to rip my bladder out through my vagina. Imagine the worst charlie horse you've ever had in your leg. Multiply that by 1000 and put it in your abdomen. Please do your research and make sure you know what you're talking about before throwing around accusations.

i dont think you should put this as a lie, people who do have terrible menstrual cramps can take such drugs like this. Its a very strong pain reliever. I, myself, get horrendous cramping every month, no normal panadol, or naprogesic helps, i get perscribed medication to relieve the pain. Oren Ishii said it, it is very effective drug for relief.

Who knows if it was illegally obtained? Maybe she has a prescription, and it is not that unusual to take vicodin for cramps, it is a very effective drug.
