Exclusive: Nicole Richie leaving a crystal meth anon meeting (update)

Nicole Richie was photographed outside the West Hollywood Recovery Center on 626 N Robertson Boulevard. I Googled the center and learned that it’s an informal recovery center that focuses on 12-step meetings. At the top of the search were results for Crystal Meth Anonymous meetings that are held there on Wednesday nights.

These pictures of Nicole Richie outside the West Hollywood Recovery center are said to be from 9/27 – Wednesday – the same day Crystal Meth Anonymous meetings are held there.

Here’s the schedule of meetings at the West Hollywood Recovery Center on Wednesdays. It is possible the Nicole went to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting “step study” and not a Crystal Meth Anonymous meeting as they are held at the same time. There is also a Nicotine Anonymous meeting at 8:30, but these pictures seem to be taken earlier than the 9:45 PM ending time:

AA Meeting 6:30-7:30 AM
AA Meeting Step Study “Quitting Time” 7:00 – 8:00 PM
Crystal Meth Anonymous Meeting “Stick to the Solution” 7:00-8:00 PM
AA-HIV-Negative & Sober 8:00-9:00 PM
Nicotine Anonymous “Nic at Nite” 8:30-9:45 PM

Nicole has denied that she checked herself into an eating disorder clinic, as has been recently rumored. She wrote an exasperated message on her myspace blasting the rumors and saying that she’s annoyed that people keep bringing it up:

Contrary to CNN’s false accusations, I did not check myself into an eating disorder rehab. I don’t know why or how this rumor started, but I am home, in LA, and very happy. I do not have an eating disorder, and I don’t know how many times I have to say it. I’ve repeated myself so many times, I feel like a broken record. Who ever started this rumor is evil and mean, but it’s not true. I am happy, and healthy, and living my life.

It’s long been rumored that Richie’s notorious stylist, Rachel Zoe, keeps her clients thin by serving as their drug dealer. Nicole may indeed be telling the truth that she doesn’t have an eating disorder, and her thin frame could be evidence of another addiction entirely.

If she is getting help, good for her. She seems really happy with Brody and hopefully she’ll kick whatever demons have been keeping her rail thin.

I’m calling this an exclusive because I believe I’m the first blogger to jump to this conclusion.

Richie is shown outside the 12-step facility on 9/27 and with Brody Jenner out to dinner on 9/24. [via]

Update: It looks like late afternoon in these pictures not 8PM, the time the meeting ended, as commentor Red Beet mentions. It’s unknown what Richie was doing at the 12-step center.

    she just left the “dwarfs” edition of meth users R us.. this girl is whacked..

  3. Evil Beet says:

    It’s a nice idea, but in those pics it’s a little bright out for it to be 8 pm in late September.

  4. lelo says:

    good for her if she continues to get help for her drugs. How does she make money, she doesn’t do anything professionally? Poor girl is starving, starving people are miserable.

    WHAT is that white stuff in her nose? look at the 8th pic

  6. Celebitchy says:

    OMG that’s not natural. I will do another post on it.

    Thats what im saying something looks not right…

  8. New says:

    Probably as soon as she fires Racheal Zoe she wont be anorexic looking. heh

  9. Megan says:

    You know, it’s called ANONYMOUS for a reason. If she IS getting help, good for her, but this is crossing a whole new line.

  10. Poor Boopie says:

    I don’t know. If she were reall a crystal meth addict you’d think her teeth would be rotting out her head by now. Maybe she wears dentures.

  11. margaret says:

    There are many, many famous people where I attend AA metings in Manhattan. I’ve always been afraid of this sort of thing. So uncool, so unsophisticated to break someone’s anonymity like this. Let the poor girl recover in peace.

  12. stark says:

    I agree, stop stalking AA meetings,loser.

  13. ANONYMOUS says:

    everyone agrees the people who post stories like this are heartless cowards with very few friends. they just don’t seem to care

  14. RaeJillian says:

    Now this may be a stretch, but wasn’t Nicole in rehab a few years ago? I think so, and so the fact that she would visit an anon meeting is not actually a sign that there is a new and “present” problem. There’s a chance that she was just feeling like she needed a boost. Either way if she was there for any of those meetings I am glad she’s facing things, I hope this works for her, and I thinks she should be left alone to continue to do so. Fights with best friend, hippie dresses at the gas station, public make out sessions – all fair game. A trip to an anon meeting, come on people – be human!
    Why does everyone need to be so mean spirited?

  15. Dee says:

    She is damned if she does, damned if she doesnt! If she is going to aa meetings, thats her private business. As far as the white stuff in her nose…it could be photoshopped. This is the internet. You cant believe anything you see…if its coke, then hey, welcome to hollywood where EVERYONE is doing it and have been for many, many years….

  16. Celebitchy says:

    You guys, I am sorry for this post and have been regretting it for a while. Sometimes you get caught up in blogging and forget that you are blowing someone’s anonymity. I did not take these pictures, and they were described as Nicole leaving this facility, but I did not have to jump to the conclusion that she was attending a crystal meth anonymous meeting. It is hard to draw the line and many of you are correct in that I overstepped it. Thanks for reading celebitchy and taking the time to comment.

    It WAS quite a leap to suggest that because Richchie is in a photo taken outside the WeHo Recovery Center that she had been attenting any meeting inside, much less a CMA meeting. Anyone familiar with that area knows there are several excellent eateries on either side of the recovery center and fun shops around every corner. A LOT of people walk by the WeHo Recovery Center who have never been inside.

    If she was at a meeting for whatever reason, whether to address her own issues or support a friend (normies are welcome at meetings to support their friends) then cheers for her. It’s nobody’s business but her own. And I agree with several other responders that you should stop stalking 12-Step meetings.

    Finally, Celebitchy, your last post rings completely hollow. If you REALLY felt bad about having posted Nicole Ritchie’s photo to you blog, you would simply remove the post.
