Nicole Richie

Big Stomach, Big House

Say you, say me ... say guilty!

TMZ was in L.A. County Superior Courtroom moments ago, where a pregnant Nicole Richie faced the music for her wrong-way DUI bust in December -- her second DUI conviction in 4 years.

A court commissioner sentenced Richie, represented by uber-lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley, to serve four days in the City or County Jail (her choice!) -- she got credit for one day, based on the six hours she served after being busted. So when she goes back in to the pokey, she'll only serve three days.

Richie was also fined $2,048, was ordered back to school for an alcohol education course and on three years probation.

Richie must report to serve her time by September 28.

The commissioner issued Richie a stern warning, telling her if she drove drunk again and she actually killed someone, she could be charged with murder -- not manslaughter. That's because after her first DUI, Richie agreed that if she drove under the influence and killed someone, she'd be nailed for murder.

The 25-year-old is expected to give birth sometime in January.

A source close to Richie said at today's sentencing she was "stoic and serious, but not emotional."

All the extremely important events going on in the world and this is what we are suppose to get excited about?! Stop letting the media/papparrazzi suffocate your instincts for survival with all of this gossip trash that means nothing but money for the industrial masses that create this superficial site out of superficial events that do nothing but exploit the abilities and beauty of the human mind. Look for the sites that offer solutions for dying world covered with sickness,war and desperation. We as a people are brilliant and exceptional at problem solving...join the human race for a better,safer and cleaner tomarrow before its to late...time is precious,you are precious, life is too precious to waste on this trash talk and trashy people. Peace.
