A rep for Nicole Richie says her health troubles on the set of The Simple Life (she collapsed last Wednesday while filming) are the result of hypoglycemia. Her rep says:
“In her ongoing effort to focus on her well-being, Nicole has recently been diagnosed with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). [She] is taking steps to manage it.”
A source also adds:
“Four or five times she’s felt really faint and almost passed out. She has to go into her trailer for a good part of the day.”
I feel faint four or five times a day too, but that’s usually just because I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror.
