Good Boy

Charlotte

4/4/2007 11:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It seems that Joel Madden has learned a tip for dealing with the paps -- that saying "please" actually works better than brute force.

As Joel left swanky Mr. Chow with girlfriend Nicole Richie, his actions were a marked change from the last time the pair left the swanky joint, when a snarky Madden pushed his way out, causing one female photographer to file a "crime report" claiming that he injured her after shoving her into a car.

But no more Mr. Nasty Guy for Jo-Jo! This time, the Good Charlotte frontman excused his way through the crowd of paparazzi waiting to photograph him with Wrong-Way Richie, saying "please" a total of six times! Richie seemed to get a kick out of her boyfriend's overt politeness and can be seen laughing as she is escorted to a car.

They are both such famewhores! They both need to go. And his fanbase consists of some OVERZEALOUS little girls too - he's such a liar about his true character, it's so pathetic but no one could convince a little GC fangirl of anything different. What a scam!

What is up with The View? Why the Reruns? Is Rosie OUT???? (hopefully)
Can't someone stuff a sock in Joy's mouth??? After they get Rosie and her politics off the show maybe it can get back to intertainment? Why does Barbara put up with this TRASH? She should stand up to these two and let it be known that The View is for entertainment not POLITICAL issues. Is anyone in the world as smart as Joy thanks she is???

Just Wondering - Lo

You can't choose how they look, or what they do.    

OK.
Soo... Most of you people think that Joel and Nicole are fame-whores, huh?
Well, let me set you straight.
First of all, you can DENY all you want, but you know you are jelous of Nicole's skinny body. You can't choose EXACTLY what you look like, and you definatly can't choose what another person's body looks like. We're all different. SO WHAT IN THE HELL MAKES YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN SIT ON YOUR FAT ASS AND JUDGE THESE PEOPLE LIKE YOU KNOW THEM PERSONALLY???

Second of all, celebrities choose who they date, propose to, and marry. The only thing you can control ((unless you're someone that KNOWS these people, like talk to them on a regular basis, hang out, etc.)) that has to do with celebrities is how you criticize them. You can't make them suddenly fall madly in love with you, or make them break up with a celebrity you hate. You can't make them buy a CD you want them to, or buy you something that you don't have the money for. You can't control what clothes they wear, the clothes they buy. (Unless, like I said, you know them PERSONALLY.)

Lastly, the ever-stupid, ever-lasting philosophy that you can't judge a book by it's cover. Give Joel and Nicole some TIME before you, you know, CRITICIZE how they act, what they wear, where they choose to go, etc. You people gave them all of about... I'll give you 2 months, at the most, to give them your shit.

Joel might marry her, and you will just have to deal.
