Mom-to-be Nicole Richie insists she’s a changed person, telling her side of the story to Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America.
On being a role model for her baby: “I would really want to be someone my child would look up to.”
On what she was on during her DUI: “I had smoked marijuana that day. Just marijuana. I had Vicodin in my system from that day. I never in my head thought that could play a part in your driving. Like, never did I think that. It was hours ago.”
On what went wrong: “I literally thought I was okay to drive, and clearly wasn’t. It was bad decision after bad decision after bad decision. It’s been a pattern in my life. When I get into trouble, I try to get out of it.”
On her pattern of trouble in the past year: “I wasn’t growing, I wasn’t going anywhere, and I saw myself going down that road again with this particular situation.”
On her current drug usage: “I don’t take anything now.”
