Nicole Richie: I Have Really Bad Cramps

Nicole Richie: I Have Really Bad Cramps

Nicole Richie also sat down with OK! Magazine for her “I Could Have Killed Someone” cover story. Here are the highlights:

On this past year: “I don’t consider it one of the worst. I think this was a blessing in disguise. This year has been full of lessons learned and soul-searching. … I will be really happy once I have done my jail time. I can start fresh.”

On feeling remorse: “I was watching CNN about a month ago, and they happened to be talking about young people driving under the influence. They were flashing little kids (on the screen) who were killed by drunk drivers, and it broke my heart. It was a big wake-up call.”

On her sentence: “It was a fair, standard sentence. I expected that.”

On comparisons with Paris’s sentence: “We weren’t charged with the same thing. We had different judges. This isn’t a popularity contest, and it’s not up to people to compare my case with Paris’.”

On why she was on a painkiller when she was arrested: “I have really bad menstrual cramps.”

On if she has taken drugs since December: “No.”

On her favorite foods: “Sushi. I’m not sure how great that is for me. I also love pizza; I’m a junk-food eater by nature.”

OK! hits newsstands in NY/LA today and nationwide Friday. Earlier today, Nicole revealed she was almost four months pregnant.

    first. im not impressed, it took 2 dui’s before she figured it out. i’m sure the 1st judge said something about killing people while under the influence and driving. dumb cunt

  • Riley

    I think she actually meant the thing about CNN.
    I think I saw the same thing on Nancy Grace, about the children, and it really does touch your heart.
    And since she was pregnant at the time its understandable that she would start caring about people other than herself.

  • KrungKrung


    now that you’re preggers, please eat and keep your baby healthy as possible and don’t be a stupid and erisponsible mother like Shitney Spears mmkay?

  • KrungKrung

    she will be the topic of the view tomorrow…

  • WhereSheShops

    Hopefully this pregnancy will wake her up and give her a little reality check. I am pulling for her…shape up girl!

  • leslie

    love her 4 ever!

  • Dirty Cougar

    I really think she’s a cutie but, I hope this really is a wake call for her and, she does the right thing. Take care of herself and family.

  • delana

  • jolie- pitt fan

    SERVE YOUR TIME NICK AND dont cry for mommy.
    Even though your real mother hasnt’ bother with you since you were 3.

  • michelle

    I just hope it works all out for her. Gawd has given her a chance. Make the best of it.

    vicodin for menstrual cramps????? liar

  • Never Learn

    So she got pregnant so she wouldn’t have cramps. Or maybe because she knows she’ll have to gain weight and thats a PR stunt to get everyone off her back. Or she got jealous from Lohan and hilton and got pregnant. Well sweetie you got more than you bargained for. Im sure she’ll hand over that baby to a nanny and she’ll be back to me, me, me. I feel bad for her unborn child because she is reckless and I hope that this child can bring change, much needed, good change to her life. There is no excuse for driving under the influence on the WRONG side of the highway. Knwoing you could kill someone should deter you from that behavior and not having to realise that after the fact. I know by commenting Im feeding the machine that keeps these young ‘celebrities’ going but them being famous is beyond me I don’t understand it.She has done nothing worthy of such popularity and media spotlight. Buy yu watching and buying anything from these celebs you keep making them richer.It’s a shame.

  • Lo

    looks so beautiful.
    what a great girl
    congrats nicole and all the very best with the baby :)

  • nick looks so pretty

    On this past year: “I don’t consider it one of the worst. I think this was a blessing in disguise. This year has been full of lessons learned and soul-searching. … I will be really happy once I have done my jail time. I can start fresh.”

    I believe her totally. Same thing happen to my brother. He got the same amout of time. Has’nt look back ,scared him stiff. Hardly drinks a beer. Never drinks and drive..
    What did Parasite say after serving her time’I'm going on vacation and get high and drunk and filth up the ocean.’

  • genna

    vicodin for menstrual cramps????? liar
    Apparently you have’nt had extreme pms. My daughter who is 23 went through ‘hormonal problems’. Her doctor started her with a high dosage of ibuprofen . When she got no comfort from that he prescribe vicoden.
    My dear, I’m a nurse and it is more prevelant than you know.
    Each case is different and of course there are tests to determine what’s best. Not that I’m excusing her. But she has own up to it and will pay.
    I have a young adult daughter in my life and I would forgive her.
    I like Nicole and I have a good feeling about her.

  • angelina_mmm


    she’s stupid

  • Samantha

    She probably just got arrested so she could be like Paris and get all the attention. She’s obsessed with Paris. She copied her hairdo and lost all the weight just to look like her.

  • Samantha

    On if she has taken drugs since December: “No.” LOL! Who does she think she’s fooling?

  • truthbesaid

    Whaat??? no grief about how skinny she is and the baby would be in mortal danger having her as a mom ???? geee louise what is this blog coming to ?? And that Joel madden for a dad… yup this kid is going into rehab at 13.

  • Nina

    Are you allowed to eat sushi when you’re pregnant? I thought that’s a big no no for pregnant women.

  • Naomi

    favorit food: oh, I’m anorexic, no food for me!

  • http://- joanna [poland]

    i wish her everything the best from all of my hearts.

  • Rox

    Dumbass needs to learn about what to eat when pregnant… You NEVER eat fish, let alone raw fish because of mercury poisoning. She clearly is not the brightest crayon in the box.


    She needs to get some weigh shes so skinny, i don”t know how can she have a baby…

  • The Observer

    I like Nicole,

    For one, I have to give her credit for accepting responsibility and not claiming that its not fair like Paris did.

    We all have a past and have done things we are not proud of. I think she has changed and will be a good mother. About her weight, that is none of anybody’s business, she can gain or loose as she pleases.

    I wish and her baby all the best. Cute couple.

  • Nando

    She’s a lying piece of crap. I bet she’s still doing drugs…even if she is pregnant. She majorly lacks common sense. There’s no bringing Nic-hoe to the good side.

  • HEY!!!!!!

    Nicole – I am glad you are changing your life for the better. Keep it up.

  • Diana

    So never before she realized that alcohol and driving can kill … she had to watch TV to finally get it!!!???


  • Eri

    We Japanese pregnant woman eat Sushi!
    its nothing problem to eat sushi when pregnant.

  • Didi

    pity you didnt kill yourself nicole.

  • Nathan


    You spewing that slur is like a Jewish person calling another Jew a “kike.” You’re a bigoted fuck.

    Is there one gossip site that doesn’t allow such vile hate speech? Jared, if you allow these blatantly anti-female slurs, then you must allow all others.

  • Mmmmm

    I hope all of this has made her wake and make that turn of life she needed.

    I am happy for her !

  • @

    shut up do you watch her eat?

  • victoria

    I can’t stand her, but vicodin for cramps is what I use, I have endometrosis which gives you really bad pain everywhere in your body even when you are not on your period but the pain I ahve is so severe that even after taking the vicodin I still hurts like hell if she was in as much pain that as you should be for vicodin she would not have been out till 3am, and its not something you take all the time just when your in pain.

  • love love nicole

    Good luck Nicole.Sounds like there are alot of ‘childish adults’ or ‘Young en’s with ‘simple minds’ posting.
    We support you hear on ‘JJ’ Nicole these bithces from ‘dlisted’ and ‘Perez’ can step off.
    I’VE BEEN HERE 2 yrs and the scum has crossed over big time.
    I guess they think if they repeat their ‘high school thinkin’ over and over we will follow..
    Not!!’Love you Nicole’ keep it 2gether and take care of your unborn.
