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 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:
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.
