At a publicist-orchestrated photo shoot in Malibu on Saturday devised to dispel persistent rumors that her skeletal figure is due to her unwillingness to consume solid food, a hired cameraman captures Nicole Richie taking a greedy bite of a huge hamburger. Just in case this photographic evidence of a healthy appetite proves insufficient in quashing nasty gossip about an eating disorder, Richie was also posed gnawing on the neck of still-living, fattened cow, a scene meant to demonstrate in more dramatic fashion her uncontrollable lust for red meat.
