Nicole Richie Is Eating

This sounds like it was an excruciatingly boring interview. Diane Sawyer wrapped up her interview with Nicole Richie on “GMA” this morning. Nicole claims she eats. I hope so otherwise that’s baby’s gonna need an IV drip.

One of Sawyer’s main concerns, the ABC anchor said on Friday’s part two of her Good Morning America interview with Richie (more from the Q&A will air on Friday’s 20/20), was whether the formerly ultra-thin Simple Life star is finally eating – and not endangering the baby she’s carrying.

“Do I eat is kind of an understatement,” said Richie, who is four months pregnant. “I eat all the time, especially now. I’m constantly hungry. I’m eating at least every hour.”

Sounding neither defensive nor particularly alarmed, Richie, 25, said, “Just like any mother, you know, you want to take the best care of yourself, especially while you’re pregnant. And I’m definitely eating healthier now, and I’m really playing by the rules.”

Richie told Di that her skeletal appearance in the last couple of years wasn’t due to an eating disorder, but due to drugs. “It could have been” was her answer to Sawyer asking about pills and thrills. Well, that’s good to know. If cocaine makes you that thin, I’m getting my fat ass out there doing some bumps! Screw Weight Watchers! I want to be able to fit in a 34 again!
