The blogs are freaking out today over news that Nicole Richie has gotten breast implants. Her boobs used to be small, you see, and then they got a little bit bigger. Clearly, this must be a sign of foul play.
“In the past, she said she wanted a lift, though we never thought she was serious,” a “source” told US Weekly. And another: “The pregnancies took a toll. She said breast-feeding killed what boobs she did have!” I’m not saying Nicole Richie seems like the kind of deep, self-accepting person who would never in a million years consider plastic surgery, but pregnancy changes your body, no? She just had her last kid two years ago, and it’s possible that the boob growth is left over from that. There are lots of other things that can make your boobs grow, too: new birth control, weight gain, eating lots of carrots. It seems like the notoriously underweight Richie started eating better when she got pregnant, so that could be part of it. I don’t think a lot of people realize how much a woman’s breasts can change over the course of her lifetime.
Then again, it could be plastic surgery. Maybe she’ll tell us about it, maybe not. But even if it does come out that she definitely had a boob job, a little extra boobage seems pretty sane compared to the head-to-toe Frankenbabe that is former BFF Paris Hilton, so she should feel pretty okay about it.
