The Hollywood Gossip has learned that Nicole Richie has been hospitalized after falling ill on the set of her reality series, the Simple Life.

According to a source close to Richie, the 25-year-old "actress," who may be going to prison soon, was rushed to the hospital after she started to feel faint and dizzy after 20 hours of filming.

What a Cute Baby

THG NOTE: Food generally helps prevent dizziness and fainting. Just saying.

The 85-pound waif was on call until 2 a.m. last night, and was required back on the set a few hours later. After a brief nap, Richie was hurried through hair and make-up and was unable to eat due to raging anorexia a very tight shooting schedule.

Simple Life producers later rushed Nicole Richie to the hospital after she began to complain that she felt dizzy. At the hospital, Richie was given fluids and food and was promptly released.

Someone get Keira Knightley to that hospital ASAP!

"Nicole has gained weight and is doing really well," says the source. She is proud of that. The producers overreacted - she didn't need to go to the hospital."

Come on, source. No one passes out due to exhaustion or dehydration unless they run marathons or don't eat. And we know Nicole doesn't do running. It's too bad Brody Jenner couldn't fulfill his relationship goal.

Maybe Joel Madden can get this girl a hot beef injection, if you know what we are talking about. Following her brief hospital stay, Richie's rep issued this statement:

"Nicole is home resting and will return to work this evening. We are proud of the weight that Nicole is gaining and her focus on her health."

On a related note, Antonella Barba will be focusing on keeping herself clothed.
