Nicole Richie

Checks into Jail

8/23/2007 8:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0823_richie_court_2-1Talk about a smart move! Nicole Richie snuck into jail today to serve her sentence for DUI.

She was booked at the Lynwood Jail, where Paris did her time, at 3:15 this afternoon. Great move by her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley. While all the attention was focused on Lindsay, no one was watching Nicole.

Nicole is being processed right now. Her photo hasn't even been taken. A Sheriff's guy says she's still being processed.

Nicole was sentenced to four days in the pokey for driving the wrong way on an L.A. freeway while under the influence. She was given credit for 1 day because she was in the slammer for 6 hours after her arrest.

Because of overcrowding, it's possible -- but not certain -- Nicole will be a free woman when we all wake up tomorrow.

Miss Richie is pregnant with her first child.

Well, I have to give her credit for checking in early as opposed to right before midnight. Either one would have counted as a day served! I know it's only a matter of a hours difference but I think that those hours probably seem a lot longer behind bars!

Her head is in the right place now and she will do her time and come out better for it. Also she is going to be a great mother. She has always said she wanted kids and she has an awsome fiance behind her to help raise him/her. You Go Girl..........

Ha! Ha! Nicole has some pretty smart folks working for her! If there were any real justice in the world Britney would have been locked up a long ass time ago for indecent exposure. Then we all wouldn't have to be subjected to her c-section scar, rotten coo coo, horrible wardrobe choices, nasty weave, etc. etc.

Mystery    

Does anyone else notice that Nicole looks similar to Heidi except less attractive? Anyone else stoked about the album from Heidi and Spencer? There is talk it will be released through Dr. Dre's label since Spencer is being hailed as the end all be all of rap. In a interview Spencer said the wicked lyrics came from growing up on the streets on 9 mile road, a stretch of road that seperates Laguna Beach with the slums of Compton. Can't wait to buy concert tickets I bet they rock live!

Say no to prop 8 and M-Rod    

you know what?
out of all the train wrecks in the public eye this summer, Nicole and paris are proving to be the most promising. I really think that this baby thing has saved her. and now after she gets jail out of the way she will be abel to move on with her life. before i use to want to hear about lindsay and brittney and i didnt even want to bother with paris and nicole...but now its totaly role reversal...britney and lindsays carrer's are shot to hell but nicole and paris got another shot.....the other two really need to take a page from the simple life stars notebook.

Not that I've been asked, but a few words of advice for Nicole:

Be smart about this. Do your time quietly. Get out as soon as you can.

Move on.

Learn from it.
