CNN: Nicole Richie Enters Rehab

by at . Comments

Our dear friends at the Hollywood Grind and the journalists at CNN are both reporting an interesting piece of news about Nicole Richie.

The Simple Life star and daughter of singer Lionel Richie has been getting a lot of grief over her food aversion in recent months. Some might say she looks a bit thin. Skeletal, even. The way one envisions a malnourished, third-world refugee.

Everybody Together: Awww!

Or a scary creature from another planet.

In any case, here's what the CNN News ticker has to say as of this morning:

"Singer Lionel Richie says he is not happy about his daughter's pencil-thin figure, and neither is Nicole Richie herself. She has checked into rehab for an eating disorder."

Well, we hope this is the beginning of a new phase in Nicole's life. One in which she embraces food in addition to boyfriend Brody Jenner.

Not sure where this picture was taken exactly, but it looks to be of Nicole entering the rehab clinic. That guy's shirt probably says "Hunger."

Or maybe "Burger."
