Food For Thought: Why Didn't Nicole Richie Invite Paris Hilton To Her Wedding?
Nicole Richie got hitched to Joel Madden over the weekend and although celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, and Ashlee Simpson showed their faces, there was one obvious person missing: Paris Hilton. Sure, these two were much closer back in the day, but many found it odd that the heiress wasn't there to celebrate the special day. Here's why.
And although Page Six says Paris didn't make the guest list for the intimate affair, a Hilton confidant insists that's not the case...
"She was invited, but she had another commitment," a source close to the heiress tells me.
So what was the reason she couldn't be there to see Nicole tie the knot?
Paris was shooting her Oxygen reality series in Vegas this weekend, where one of her castmates was celebrating her birthday (costar Brooke Mueller didn't attend).
"This was planned months ago," the source says. "Paris sent Nicole and Joel a wedding gift to congratulate them and wishes them both the best."
Plus Paris used to date Joel's brother Benji Madden. Talk about an awkward run in.
