Nicole Richie wants to write a cookbook

About a year ago a joke book came out called The Nicole Richie Cookbook. It was sixty some pages long, and each page was blank. Haha, Nicole doesn’t eat. Mildly funny at best. Now what’s a much funnier idea is Nicole Richie actually writing a cookbook herself. Which is just what she wants to do, if you believe her friends that chat with OK! Magazine. Apparently Nicole is just knee-deep in domestic bliss, and wants to share her happiness – or at least her recipes – with the rest of us.

Move over Rachael Ray, there’s another cute cook in the kitchen! The Simple Life star Nicole Richie took up cooking in order to become the perfect partner and mom. Now, she’s gotten so good at it she wants to publish her own cookbook!

“She keeps a box full of recipes handwritten on index cards,” a pal of Nicole,26, tells OK!. “She has mac and cheese down to a fine science!”

But when it comes to whipping up meals for fiance Joel Madden,29, Nicole, who is mom to their 5-month old daughter Harlow, looks to the lighter side.

Says the source, “She keeps things low-fat to help her and Joel watch their weight!”

[From OK! Magazine]

Well yeah, because they’re such fatties. Watching their weight should be a big priority for the both of them. Actually Joel seems to have gone through a pudgy phase or two – as has Nicole, now that I think about it. But they’ve both been looking pretty trim for the past couple years. In fact Nicole’s got it down to a science.

Although celeb ass-kissy OK! claims that the two are super domestic and blissfully happy, People quotes Joel as saying they have no plans to get married. They’ve often been referred to as each other’s fiance (see the OK! article above), but in terms of taking a walk down the aisle, it sounds like Joel would rather saunter the other way.

“We don’t have any plans for that right now,” Madden told PEOPLE on Wednesday. “We’re just happy, and we’re being a family, and that’s where we’re at right now. But marriage means something different to everyone.”

“Right now we’re really happy,” the Good Charlotte frontman says, “and we’re concentrating on our family, and that’s what is making us happy right now. We’re moving at our own pace.”

[From People]

It’s funny because you can tell Joel is just barely holding back from screaming “Don’t rush me!” to the reporter. I think there may have been a “F*#% you” muttered under his breath. Joel clearly had a little line all rehearsed and ready to go, since he basically said the same thing twice. We get it, you’re supposedly happy and don’t want to be tied to Nicole Richie or her low fat for the rest of your life. I’m not sure many people could blame you.

    What, on how to cook up a good batch of meth?

  2. Syko says:

    Most people can cook mac & cheese already, or at least follow the instructions on a box.

    When I buy a cookbook, I want it to be written by someone who actually can cook. A year or so of cooking the occasional meal does not make a cook.

  3. Cassie says:

    @ Syko: Oh, no, but she’s a CELEBRITY who’s been cooking their own meals for a year now, so clearly she IS qualified to write her own cookbook!


  4. Syko says:

    Gosh, Cassie, you’re right. What was I thinking? I’m going to go pre-order the cookbook from Amazon right now!

  5. ER says:

    Nicole writing a cookbook is like Roseanne writing a diet book!

  6. Granger says:

    Absolutely agree, Syko. It’s the whole Jessica Seinfeld thing all over again. “I have three kids, so I’m obviously an expert on children’s nutrition now. Hey, I’ve got lots of time on my hands thanks to nannies and housecleaners… I think I’ll write a cookbook!”

  7. vdantev says:

    Prefer my cookbooks written by those who have actually ingested food in their lifetime. :lol:

  8. Because I say So says:

    As if she cooks anything.

  9. velvet elvis says:

    Her cookbook probably reads something like this….

    Recipe for Ravioli

    Step 1: Open can of Chef Boyardee with can opener.

    Step 2: Tah dah!

    Ahhh Nicole and her ugly dresses…that’s a great joke, her cooking…she must just slap something together and light a cigarette afterwards and just watch everyone eat…she has so much money from god knows what and she wears this crap…she makes me so angry!

  11. Kaiser/ Hippacrat says:

    Uh oh, Velvet Elvis – I think that recipe is trademarked by Rachel Ray!

  12. gg says:

    paris, don’t let her make you angry darlin. She’s just another weirdo.

    She’s quit actually smiling for cameras since she got her upper lip collagenized and now she looks about 13. In the first pic she’s got white goo in her hair, or are those tracks because she’s got tension alopecia?
