Claws Back at Rachel

11/28/2006 2:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie didn't waste any time responding -- in spectacularly bitchy fashion -- to her former stylist Rachel Zoe's statement to TMZ yesterday about their professional split.

On her MySpace blog, Richie took a page from the gossipistas and posted a not-so-blind item that makes a rather pointed reference to a "35 year old" (Zoe is 35) who, Richie alleges, has an eating disorder, from which Nicole herself has been rumored to suffer. Here's the unedited posting:

What 35 year old raisin face whispers her order of 3 peices of asparagus for dinner at Chateau everynight, and hides her deathly disorder by pointing the finger at me, and used her last paycheck I wrote her to pay for a publisist instead of a nutritionist?
HINT: Her nickname is lettucecup..."

Zoe's reps had no comment on Richie's riposte. Yesterday, sources told TMZ that Zoe was unhappy with choices Richie had made in her life, and ended their working relationship. Zoe also told TMZ, "I have nothing but love for Nicole and wish her only health and happiness."

Rachel Zoe is the posterchild for what an eating disorder looks like at 35 - if one actually survives to that age. Clearly Nicole needed to sever ties with her as part of her efforts to try and get the eating disorder monkey off her back - good for Nicole! That being said - they've both had their chance to air their side of the story, now it's time to end the cat fight and handle this like adults - just ignore each other and get on with your lives ladies!

I am subscribed to Nicole's blog on MySpace and she has evidently deleted every blog post. There's nothing there now.

1. Apparently her eating disorder has affected her more than she is willing to admit: she misspelled the word "publicist"

2. For the sake of all that is greasy and good, who in God's name could possibly think she looks good? It's like an olive on a toothpick wearing Jimmy Choo....for s"h" who said Nicoloe shed all those "extra pounds" and now "looks human" disgust me. A real human's collarbone don't thrust out from their chest like she was some kind of turtle. It's that kind of thinking that has our children barfing up their lunches and eating a meal so small that an Ethiopian would send it back. I reject your reality and substitute my own.

IF sh is a girl, she's probably retching over a toilet bowl right this second. If sh is a guy and he thinks that Nicole needed to lose weight to look human, he has even worse issues--ever heard of gynophobia? Look it up, a-hole.

Um Nicole you are in no position to be calling anyone names. What a spoiled little hypocrite! She looks like a gremlin for goodness sake!

Nicole Richie is a rude, arrogant, spoilt brat! People bash Paris but Nicole is much worse. She is mean spirited and obnoxious.

She is painfully thin and looks awful (as does RZ). They are both shallow, bitchy, fashion victims.

Nicole has an ugly face. She is untalented, stupid and farts all the time.

But her farts smells like...asparagus!

i think that's the most intelligent thing nicole ritchie has ever said! look at rachel zoe. great understanding of fashion & sense of style, but looking aged beyond her years thanks to her own eating disorders which she does promote among her clients. YOU GO, NIC! tell that bitch what's up!

Please. The only eating disorder Nicole Richie has is called "COCAINE ADDICTION"!!!!!!! It's funny 3 years ago she was on the verge of being fat, now all of the sudden, she conveineintly has an eating disorder. It doesn't happen like that. She got rich, and developed a habit she couldn't break, now she never eats. The bad part is, I think she thinks it looks good, or she'd be trying a little harder to fix the problem. It's just nasty looking. She's about the same size as the straw she uses to go "skiing", if you know what I mean.

I love Nicole Richie because she says it like it is. She is ballsy, but she really shouldn't be that skinny. It is not attractive and she looked way better when she weighed more. That is one of the reason's why I liked her better than Paris also in thier first season together. So who ever said she looks "more human" now that she shed off all those extra pounds must be insanely skinny. If that's that case, than I must look like and elephant weighing at 143lbs.
