Nicole Richie Goes to the Head of the Class

Nicole Richie Goes to the Head of the Class

New mom Nicole Richie continues to get her life back on track by returning to her 18-month program of group counseling, one-on-one meetings and alcohol education on Wednesday in Los Angeles. (These classes were initially ordered after she pleaded guilty to DUI in July 2007.)

“She’s very coopera­tive and humble — she seems determined never to get into the same situation again,” an insider tells Life & Style. “She wants to put the whole ordeal behind her. She has a family to focus on now, and that has given her great strength.”

But there are tough new challenges ahead. In late March, Joel left for a Good Charlotte tour that will take him throughout Europe through mid-April. He still checks in on baby Harlow and Nicole nightly, video-conferencing via iChat, but it’s obviously not the same as being there.

Nicole and Joel can’t wait until he’s back so they can resume their routine. “Nicole’s world is about bottles, diapers and family dinners now,” says the couple’s friend. “Parenthood is the best thing that ever happened to her.”

    good going, Nicole! Stay sober! You are an inspiration to many.

    There was that blind item a while back saying that Nicole was already tired of baby and wanted to party. I really hoped that wasn’t true and it looks like it wasn’t. I hope she is enjoying her beautiful baby. You can never go wrong when devoting yourself to the well being of a child. It is enriching and rewarding in ways you cannot imagine. Nicole has separated herself from that worthless party girl image she had with Paris Hilton and she ought to be very proud of the change.

    She looks amazing.

    She looks full and curvy in a very good way. Considering how bad she looked before the baby, really no celeb pregnancy had been this rewarding results, really the girl was just wasting away and baby Harlow saved her.

    keep the good work, Nicole! Just like what your father said:
    “Once, twice, three times a lady”, I think that’s what you are.

  • Adria

    Why is she NEVER seen WITH her baby? It’s like she leaves her at home whenever she goes out.

  • Lita
