Star magazine is reporting that Nicole Richie's baby is in danger: "She's just 25 years old, but Nicole Richie has done more than her share of hard living. And now, say medical experts, she may have to pay the price.
Nicole has been using heroin and pills. She's abused alcohol and cocaine and battled devastating anorexia. She has also been arrested for DUI and drugs and has done three stints in rehab, while becoming famous as Paris Hilton's wild party pal.
But the 12-weeks-pregnant "The Simple Life" star is facing her biggest challenge yet — motherhood.
Although she's frightened and desperate to stay clean, sources say sobriety remains a daily struggle, and experts agree that beating her demons will likely be a long and arduous process.
Doctors say Nicole's pregnancy is unusually high-risk. If she did have drugs in her system when she got pregnant, she could be at risk for a miscarriage or birth defects.
Nicole's weight is another serious ongoing problem. Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a clinical professor at Yale University (who has not treated Nicole), is surprised that the scary-skinny star could conceive at all. "That baby is at extraordinary risk," says Dr. Minkin. "Nicole needs to gain at least 40 pounds to nourish the baby properly."
Bricks and Stones posts on her latest legal victory: "In the life of the privileged and famous, Nicole Richie has gotten another break in her DUI trial. The trial will not start today and has been pushed back another month until August 16th. The postponement occurred because Nicole’s key witness, Dr. McGee, is on vacation with his family. Dr. McGee will reportedly challenge the drug results.
I bet this stupid hoe will not even get charged even when she finally gets her ass to court. And the worst part is, what jury would believe a doctor named Dr. McGee?That sounds real credible, like he for sure isn’t some ex-hippie stoner doctor that passes out prescriptions for weed and vicodin. Gotta love the justice system."
How is anyone remotely surprised? Celebs get out of jail time? This is not news. What's beyond sick though, is that she would possibly use her pregnant condition to the aid of avoiding a sentence. I mean, what is this, "The Young and the Restless"? Maybe her evil twin should take the stand.
