Nicole Richie has put up a post on her MySpace page denying the Page Six item suggesting she got gastric bypass surgery and had it reversed. She writes:

So i gain a little bit of weight, and im acussed of having a gastric bypass surgery reversed? Its pathetic of Page Six to insinuate i have done this. Anyone that knows anything about this surgery would know that legally, you must be AT LEAST 100 pounds overweight to even have the surgery done, and is a serious, life changing procedure; not one to throw around as a joke or a rumor. Ive given a statement I am in the process of putting on weight, and that should be enough. Its a shame to hear that instead of hearing supportive words, someone needs to spin it into some negative, absurd way

Yeah that’s pretty much what I figured. If she’d actually gotten the surgery this story would’ve been totally different. Namely she’d be dead. And I’d be writing about how doctors found her 32 lb corpse on the kitchen floor, too frail and weak to even get the fridge door open.
