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.
