Sources Say Richie

Collapses at Hyde

10/29/2006 11:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole RichieSources tell TMZ that Nicole Richie passed out at Hyde nightclub early Sunday morning in Hollywood.

We're told it occurred just before 2 a.m., when Richie passed out and fell to the floor. An employee approached Richie and her friends and said he was calling 911. Sources say they told the employee not to make the call and that they would take Richie to a hospital. The friends then carried Richie out of the club through the back door. TMZ does not know if Richie went to the hospital.

Before Richie collapsed, we're told she hung out for awhile with Lindsay Lohan inside the club. Lohan had her own bizarre tale early Sunday morning on a street in Hollywood.

Nicole Richie: click to launchLate last week, Richie's reps confirmed that the "Simple Life" star entered a treatment facility to determine why she hasn't gained weight. Richie has looked shockingly thin over the last few months.

Richie's rep tells TMZ her client was at Hyde for approximately 20 minutes but denies that she collapsed.

Use all your misplaced sympathy on someone who really DESERVES it, folks.

Somebody give this girl a large caliber handgun with an instruction booklet on how to load and fire it into her brain.

Who is she....really? Aside from being a prolonged public suicide trip, what has she done that is so noteworthy as to give her all this press space? She and her buddies, Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, are just a collection of immature, blue-nosed junkies.

And PLEASE give AOL the same handgun to use on themselves after Richie does everybody a favor so we won't have to be carpet-bombed with stupid shit about this no-talent dummy any more.

I hope I have not been too vague.

Someone should put in "Before" and "After" captions around the two pics on the previous page. The lower right pic should say "Yeah where's the smack!" and the one at the top should say, "That wasn't a good idea, I'm so used up."

OMFG    

What kind of "treatment" facility is she really going to? It says she's looking into her eating disorer, but if she doing speed, then of course she's not eating. All I can say is that, every time I see pictures of her, I want to sit her down and force feed her pasta!!! Maybe, if she insists on not eating properly, she should look into "Boost", or "Ensure". Sucking back a few meal replacement shakes is better than not eating at all.

Obviously she has psychological issues.....does she even know who her real father and mother are?.....didn't they hand her off to Lionel Richie at a very young age? Her problems are most likely related to REJECTION by her mother and father at a very young age. No amount of money can replace the deep rooted feelings of rejection she has experienced. She is self medicating with either drugs or alcohol or both. All you have to do is look at the chick...her personal appearance is SCREAMING....HELP ME!

Self medicating will temporarily ease the pain but getting wasted isn't solving the problem. She needs COUNSELING to learn how to face and slay her demons.

It is definately heroin... even though she is rich and probably doesn`t have to be dope sick much, it yakes a toll on you and leads to the eating disorder! She looks sick, her face is sunk in and her color is off. Heroin is a hard drug to get off of. Hey she can always get on Methadone. Either way she needs help. I feel sorry for her...goes to show you that money can`t buy happiness.

Niclone is known to be affiliated with the Firecrotch Gang, a documented group of 15-minutes of fame has-been clones.

Oh, my poor babies. These children are sad..sad...sad. This wil not stop with our young until we accept women in ALL shapes and sizes as beautiful, as intelligent and more than poster baby dolls. It's okay to like who you like, but its not olay to make a certain shape, size or look an ideal. We stop that, then we'll find one of the main keys of loving one another.

It is hard to beat an eating disorder especially when you are in the public eye at all times and your every move is recorded captured on camera,but on the other hand she has an advantage that she has the money to enter a treatment program,also it doesn't help the kind of friends that you have maybe she is back on drugs who knows. what also doesn't help is that her father is in denial along with her,because he was on vh1 saying she doesn't have an eating disorder stress causes her to loose weight rapidly and all the time then sh!& i should be just as then as her because im under stress all the time im a wife and i work full time and i have a million and one things to do so for all of us moms who are in the same boat and have a couple of extra pounds we want to get rid of then we should get the nicole richie stress syndrome. and i hope that nicole does get treatment and really gets better.
