    Wow. If you look at benji in this pic, and harlow in the pic in nyc posted prior to this, they have the same expression on their faces.

    I think Harlow really changed her life. I remember how she was usually snapped coming out of all those parties with Paris, drinking, driving, etc etc. Before she got pregnant she was loosing so much weight, we could see all her bones, I guess it was a quite scary time for her family. Then Harlow arrived and kids are really a test: some women can’t take the pressure of having kids and give them to a nanny and they right away go back to their life style. But suddenly Nicole put on a healthy weight, started to smile a lot and she was taking lots of walks with the baby. I really think they are both enjoying parenting. I can’t wait to see the second one!

    By the way, she doesn’t need to expose her kids in the media for money. The family have $$$$$ enough. Her father composes for other people (we don’t see him in the hit lists but doesn’t mean he’s not working any more) and she got lots lots lots of money with “The Simple Life”. All those stars have financial councellors and they invest the money which keeps giving them more money. Let’s give them a break and enjoy their life!

    Ice, you idiot — Nicole “hangs around Hollywood” because that is where she has grown up and has lived ALL of her life! Hollywood is “home” to her…always has been, always will be probably. You (“ICE”) sound like a REALLY JEALOUS AND MISERABLE EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING. You’re jealous bec. you more than likely are covetous of what someone else (Nicole) has, and she really did not have to work that hard to get what she has. Pisses you off, doesn’t it? Hey listen, “Ice”: to paraphrase what someone else said: STOP being jealous and hatefull and uptight…it’ll just give you more wrinkles than you probably already have, and make you look uglier to boot!

    And because her father is a celeb means we have to suffer seeing her around? Her one and only TV show where she was only in a supporting role was years ago. Yet she refuses to disappear. I’d rather focus on real celebs than her. Even Heidi Montag has more reason being a celeb than her. If she’s really that good of a mother, with no job to do, she can jolly well disappear from the limelight. The fact that she hangs around Hollywood while being talentless means she a famewhore and nothing more

    Ice, #22 is right. She doesn’t have to work because her partner can provide enough for the family. My mom never had to work, because my dad made enough $ and my mom wanted to “watch the kids grow up”. You can’t assume someone’s lazy because they don’t work–

    As for Nicole & Joel, Congratulations!!! Harlow is absolutely beautiful, and it’s really nice to see a Hollywood starlet settling down so nicely, like Nicole. Congrats!

    I think this is a wonderful picture of them. Nicole will never have to work a day in her life, she has a trust fund, Lionel also set up a 3 million dollar trust account for Harlow when she was born and bought Nicole a million dollar condo also, they have money, Joel is a rock star, he may not be in Lionel’s category, and never will be, but he is rich and they can afford as many coffee shops as they want, much less coffee.

    You forget that Joel Madden is a rock star. I’m sure Nicole doesn’t have to work for anything. He’s the bread winner of the family. Nothing wrong with that as long as it works for their family.

  8. Kelli says

    Hey Ice. Nicole’s father is the uberrich Lionel Richie. She doesn’t HAVE to do anything to sustain her coffee and shopping lifestyle. Don’t hate, hon. It gives you wrinkles.

  9. ice says

    She got pregnant because pimping her children out is the only way she can remain in the limelight for someone who basically does nothing for a living. It is the only way she can sustain her shopping and coffee lifestyle.

    And dont wory about the feeling of winning an Oscar, Mr Madden. You and your entire talentless family will never win anything
