Nicole Richie and Joel Madden recently made an offer on a home in a posh, gated Southern California community only to be denied by the would-be neighbors.
When Nicole Richie got the news that she and her fiance and rocker baby-daddy were denied by residents who were concerned about celebrity news photographers hovering around their homes, "Nicole was livid because she loved the house," a source tells Us Weekly. "She thinks it's a BS reason, but she couldn't fight it."
Still, being dismissed from the private community hasn't put a damper on Joel Madden and Nicole Richie's growing excitement over their upcoming event.
Another source says that Nicole Richie is planning a baby shower for the end of November. And Joel Madden expects fatherhood to have a positive impact on many parts of his life, including his songwriting.
"I'm sure it will inspire me," he said. "Yeah, I'm sure it will."
Hopefully it will also inspire Nicole. To eat.
