Super skinny Nicole Richie has been admitted to a medical facility to determine why she is unable to gain weight.

Note that this is a new story, not a continuation of when T.H. Gossip reported that Nicole Richie was quite possibly a crystal meth fiend.

A Mom Again

In any case, the Simple Life star's publicist issued a statement Thursday stressing that Richie -- wait for it -- does not have any eating disorders.

"She is working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition. It is important to Nicole that she achieve this goal in a healthy way," said Nicole Perna, whose job must be really awesome.

Richie, 25, has been dogged by speculation about her weight loss by a bevy of bastard websites and pararazzi. But she knows she's got issues.

After all, this is what she used to look like, before she morphed into some kind of alien.

In an interview with Vanity Fair in June, the daughter of singer Lionel Richie admitted she is too thin.

"I really do need to do something about it," she said. "I'm not happy with the way I look right now."

Last month, Richie denied a report by CNN claiming she was in treatment for an eating disorder. She did not comment on new boyfriend Samuel Plouchart or exes Brody Jenner and DJ AM.

"I did not check myself into an eating disorder rehab," she said. "I do not have an eating disorder, and I don't know how many times I have to say it."

On the Tyra Banks Show, Richie said she was not suffering from anorexia.

"Absolutely not," she told Tyra Banks, who is host of the Tyra Banks Show.

Mmm hmm. Sure Nicole. And T.H. Gossip is "absolutely not" in love with Shakira.

Note to female celebrities: Just because you own vocal cords doesn't mean you need to record an album.

Following news that Scarlett Johansson is releasing an album in the near future - although she can reportedly carry a beautiful tune - another woman not known for her stage presence is hoping to do the same.

Sadly, it's the extraordinarily thin Nicole Richie. The wanna-be actress is also a wanna-be singer, as she plans on following in her father Lionel's musical footsteps.

"My whole goal in life is to be a singer," Richie said. "I really feel I am just starting in life, there are so many chapters coming up."

And so few of them involve sitting down for a meal.

Riche said her father has given her advice in the area, at least some of which would center around avoiding the fate of enemy/friend, Paris Hilton.

That awul socialite's album has barely moved on the charts. Nicole's weight-gaining attempts have been more successful. Actually, that's not true.

Here's the question, fans: what non-singer will release an album next? We'd vote for Brooke Hogan, but apparently she's classified as a "singer" for some reason.

The amazing Nicole Richie, star of the Simple Life, AA meetings and many a Samuel Plouchart fantasy, broke things off with her previous boyfriend because the pair got too serious too fast.

Nicole and Brody Jenner were really into each other, but didn't take it slow, which resulted in too many lame dates in a short time frame, not enough nutrients for Nicole (are there ever?) and a heck of a lot of bickering!

The couple, who have been friends since childhood, dated for two months before calling it quits earlier in October.

Jenner tells Star: "It was getting too serious. Too fast. We started fighting. There was too much bickering."

The ex-boyfriend of Kristin Cavallari also says geography was a big reason he began dating Richie in the first place.

"She lived above me, you know, in the apartment building. So it was too convenient... I've known her since we were kids and I really just wanted to be friends. She's a great girl and now we are good friends."

That's good. Meanwhile, Brody has reportedly been chilling with Lauren Conrad, nemesis of Cavallari.

That's how you spell d-r-a-m-a.

Just three days after her October 4 breakup with her beau of two months, Brody Jenner, Nicole Richie showed off a new hair color (red), a new attitude towards eating (just kidding -- what the f*%k did you think?) and a new guy.

Samuel Plouchart.

This poor bastard is a fashion editor at the French magazine Citizen K -- and he was actually a pre-Brody Jenner fling for Nicole.

As Richie tells Us, "New boy, new look."

THG NOTE: Somebody kill us now.

Meanwhile, Jenner, 23, tells Us exclusively that near the end of their relationship, Richie, 25, "didn't treat me like a friend or a boyfriend."

He, however, cared for her greatly.

"He tried to help her gain weight," one of Jenner's buddies said.

When she'd only eat a few bites and stop, he'd say, "Finish that!"

Wishful thinking, BJ.

Jenner says now he's on good terms with Richie and he's moving on, too. He took The Hills star Lauren Conrad, 20, to a hockey game and then to hot spot Les Deaux on October 6.

Although Conrad (whose Laguna Beach arch-nemesis Kristin Cavallari, 19, is Jenner's ex) tells Us, "We're just friends," a source says the pair spent the night "touching, and deep in conversation."

Sounds like some serious drama unfolding to THG! We can only hope that this relationship Nicole and Samuel progresses, because it seems like he's really good for her. Well, kind of. We have no idea really.

The shorts.

The sunglasses.

The rough-looking boy toy.

The eating disorders and drug addictions.

Yes, it seems our hero Nicole Richie has a brand new lifestyle and fashion influence these days in legendary supermodel Kate Moss.

The ex-girlfriend of Brody Jenner and the man known only as DJ AM was spotted cruising the streets of Beverly Hills with a new mystery man.

This man, God help him, bears a very close resemblance to rocker Pete Doherty, Moss' drug addict fiancee / boyfriend / dry-humping partner. See below.

Maybe Nicole (right) is hoping the mimicry will land her on the same steller career path as her hero. Moss is living proof that food is not a necessary step on the road to fame.

Speaking of PeteMoss, rumors are flying that Kate has given Pete an ultimatum to quit his band Babyshambles. We'll have more on that as it develops, and after we're done puking up our lunch.

In possibly putting an end to their long-running feud, former Simple Life BFFs Paris Hilton (taking a rare break from getting pumped) and the embattled Nicole Richie reunited over a lovely dinner at Dan Tana's restaurant in West Hollywood on Sunday (left). Very little food was eaten, in all likelihood.

The day before, Richie, who recently split from Brody Jenner, showed off a new look and a new mystery guy in Los Angeles (right). Man, this girl is a real man-eater. Too bad she's not an eater of anything else. Like food. If you know what we're talking about. We're saying she has an eating disorder. Oh. Snap.

It appears Bichie is no more.

T.H. Gossip has learned that after two months of dating, Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner have called it quits.

Playboy Party

Richie's rep confirmed the break-up, stating that: "Nicole and Brody are no longer dating but remain close friends."

A source says that Richie, who may or may not be hooked on crystal meth, initiated the breakup today at Jenner's home in Malibu and that both agreed it was best to part ways.

"Nicole just wants to be single right now. She felt it was a mistake to jump into a relationship so soon after her breakup with AM," says the source.

Richie and Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein split in May of this year after a nine-month engagement. Prior to that, Richie and food split after a turbulent relationship back in 2002.

DJ AM has been rumored to be tagging Kristin Cavallari, who's Jenner's ex, but that's neither here nor there at this point.

In order to clear the air, Nicole posted the following message on her MySpace page on Wednesday:

"Relationship? I know there are rumors regarding my 'breakup' with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he's a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity."

That's not what Richie's rep said last night when she confirmed the break-up of the relationship. But hey, what do we care. All we know is that Brody could be hitting Lauren Conrad right about now, and we really hope that he is. Because that is a F-I-N-E woman, and because it would create serious drama.

It's October, and you know what that means -- lots and lots of Hollywood news, rumors and breasts here at the Gossip. Oh wait, that's every month.

What makes the 10th month of the year special is Halloween. Given that you always need a lot of ideas before narrowing them down, we've put together some great costumes for you to potentially use. See below, but beware: What you are about to see may scare the ever-loving $h!t out of you.

Lohan, Blonde Hair

Click to enlarge (note that you can only enlarge these stick figures by so much)!

Scary! Going as any of the freakish ghouls you see above (from left-to-right, Keira Knightley, Kate Bosworth, crystal meth fiend Nicole Richie, whoremonger Lindsay Lohan, and former OC slut Mischa Barton) is guaranteed to scare the crap out of everyone at your Halloween party. The only downside? No Halloween candy. And if you go as Lohan, you have to stay in character and get busy with at least four guys in the bathroom.

Nicole Richie claims she doesn't have an eating problem, and did not check herself into rehab for one.

Interestingly, though, she was photographed outside the W. Hollywood Recovery Center, which is evidently an informal meeting place that focuses on 12-step meetings.

A search of the rehab venue's programs reveals Crystal Meth Anonymous meetings that are held there on Wednesday nights.

We've got a picture of Nicole outside the place from September 27. Here she is, seen leaving the center the same day Crystal Meth Anonymous meetings are held.

Therefore, our favorite girl must totally be hooked on the stuff, right?

Oh, who the hell knows, but it makes for some interesting gossip (not unlike Suri Cruise being born of alien life forms).

And we thought it was just an eating disorder, Nic! Crazy!

There's more to the meth myth than meets the eye. It's long been rumored that Richie's stylist, Rachel Zoe, keeps her clients thin by doubling as their drug dealer.

Nicole may indeed be telling the truth that she doesn't have an eating disorder -- she has been chowing down on some pretty big slabs of meat of late -- and maybe her thin frame could be evidence of another addiction entirely.

If she is getting help, good for her. She clearly needs it -- look at how narrow this pic is! Look at ANY Nicole Richie pics from the past year!

Get some counseling, girlfriend. There's no need to ride the rails all night long when you can ride Brody Jenner instead.

*Laugh* Okay, so CNN reported that Nicole Richie entered a rehab clinic for an ongoing eating disorder, and seeing that she is a malnourished waste, it made perfect sense to our editorial board and we jumped all over the story.

Our bad!

Nicole has issued the following statement on her MySpace page, fervently denying the rumors:

Cute Celebrity Baby-Mom Duo

"Contrary to CNN's false accusations, I did not check myself into an eating disorder rehab. I dont know why or how this rumor started, but i am home, in LA, and very happy. I do not have an eating disorder, and I don't know how many times I have to say it. I've repeated myself so many times, I feel like a broken record. Who ever started this rumor is evil and mean, but its not true. I am happy, and healthy, and living my life."

So, you have an eating disorder, then, Nicole? It's okay. We figured as much. Look, you should really get some help and enter rehab, don't you think? It's for your own good! You want Brody Jenner to like you, right?
