I don’t usually mention Nicole Richie here for the same reason I don’t mention a duck I saw at the park. Why in the hell would I. She doesn’t do anything. Unless being mistaken for the chupacabra is now a job. And yet for some reason it’s news that she is ending her nine month engagement to Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM. Richie’s publicist confirmed to the AP on Wednesday that the couple have split. She said the breakup had been in the works for several days, but would not give any further details.
I wouldn’t refer to an affair of the heart as being “in the works”, like there was paperwork or new computer code still to be written, but, whatever. This guy seems to have become a low level tabloid star. Seemingly lost in the shuffle is that he’s a disc jockey. Is there any lower rung on the Hollywood entertainment ladder than DJ. Oh wait, yeah … Nicole Richie. At least AM pushes play on his record player. That puts him beneath a guy who can make balloon animals, but he was still the only one of the two who ever said “I have to go to work now”.
