Nicole Richie Seeks Treatment For Nutrition Issues

What nutrition issues those may be, well your guess is as good as mine. Her publicist is claiming that she is not seeking treatment for an eating disorder. Then what is she seeking help for? How to unwrap a Hershey’s Kiss?

The reality TV star is in an undisclosed private facility. Her publicist told E! News:

(She’s checked herself into a facility) “to undergo diagnostic treatment to determine why she’s not been putting on any weight.”

“She is working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition,” says the rep. “It is important to Nicole that she achieve this goal in a healthy way, [but] this is not a treatment for an eating disorder.”

The production company for “The Simple Life” and E! have been very supportive:

In a joint statement, show producers 20th Century Fox and Bunim/Murray said, “Everyone…supports Nicole and wishes her well. We consider her a part of our family and look forward to resuming production on The Simple Life when she is ready.”

Meanwhile, E!, which televises the series, added, “Nicole is an important member of the E! Networks family. We send her our very best wishes and look forward to working with her on the new season of The Simple Life.” (E! Online is a division of E! Networks.)

The starlet has consistently denied that she has an eating disorder. All I can say is – get well girl.
