Publicist Pokes Fun at Richie in ‘Cookbook’

nicole richie.jpegNicole Richie has been attacked by the tabs about her weight over and over again. But now a “Hollywood publicist” is stepping up to the plate to take a jab at Richie’s formerly gaunt frame (remember, she’s pregnant now) courtesy of what else, a cookbook.

Robert Smith has come up with the “Nicole Richie Cookbook,” a comical tome that actually includes no recipes at all. It’s just pages and pages of empty paper – obviously an easy read, announced the author. “This is the only book I’ve read from cover to cover. It’s a real page turner that I couldn’t put down,” he says on the book’s website.

The site also says that the $11.99 gag gift “will definitely bring a smile to your family and friends.” FBLA is betting it won’t bring the same reaction to Richie’s face.
