Nicole's Hired Muscle

Strong-Arms Photogs

4/27/2007 3:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie was spotted at the gym yesterday -- with her celebrity trainer muscling away photogs for the tiny starlet.

TMZ caught buffer-upper Teddy Bass picking off the paparazzi while escorting Richie to her workout, the camo-panted militant shouting, "Move! Get off the sidewalk!" as he pushed through the crowd. But cameras apparently took off or didn't care as much when it was time for Cameron Diaz's exit from the same gym, as Bass remained calm while he walked Miss D to her car. Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova had no escort as she departed.

Later that night outside of Mr. Chow, Tom Arnold showed off a shiny metal baseball bat -- which he said he plans on using against the paparazzi "when it gets too ugly." Mr. Chow also hosted "Will & Grace"-in-syndie-star Eric McCormack, along with uber-hotties Cindy Crawford and Elisha Cuthbert.

All this and more in today's fit as a Richie version of Star Catcher.

I love that the celebrities are fighting back and putting the PAP in their place. Even with a slap in the wrist..HAHA!!
Way past time. TMZ included.
Tiem to offer stiff penalities to the press for their carlessness and intrusion of privacy.
If someone other than the press was invovled, they'd be cited as a stalker and arrested..

Why did Tom Arnold think he needed a bat as protection? Wishful thinking?

I guess she's tired this time (yeah, sure!) regarding remarks about her weight. Obviously she is painfully thin because cameras add some weight to everybody.

Of course she can't deal with people not paying attention to her either so let's see how long "working with this trainer " act lasts.

Come on, TMZ are you running out of real celebs? Why do you pay for photos of these bimbos? We don't care out here what they do. Glad to see the Pap hassle them, maybe they will think twice about seeking fame when they have done nothing at all to obtain it!!! Go POPs, hassle the hell out of these guys!!!!!! Let them pay for the good ole body guards!

There is no use in photogs driving famous people completely nuts. On the other hand people should not try to become famous and then become bugged when they are recogized and photographed. I saw Elizabeth Taylor once in an interview. She said she has tried all her life to escape her fame. How ridiculous. If she didnt want fame she should not have gone after it in the first place.
