Letter From L.A.: Nicole Richie Lapdances, Blows Chunks At Ronson Bash

On Monday, August 7, DJ and person-at-large Samantha Ronson had a birthday party at LA’s premiere hotspot, Hyde.

Lindsay Lohan was there with her new beau—they’re totally going steady!—Harry Morton, a hotel heir fond of headbands. So was Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who was spotted by cameras leaving the party to go next door to pick up some cookies for Ms. Ronson. (“It’s a birthday party,” he explained, displaying inner clarity, to a TMZ cameraman.) The Good Charlotte guitarist wore a cut off t-shirt, accentuating his “sleeves.”

But the real action was happening inside the Sunset Boulevard club, where, sources say, Nicole Richie was getting into the party spirit with her spirit of choice: Tequila! “She was so wasted!” said an attendant, who also said that Ms. Richie’s drinking partner, Mary-Kate Olsen, was not doing anything to help the situation. “She was dancing on the tables and then she started giving lap dances to her friends and random guys, too.”

And then it happened, under the copper ceiling, amidst the hanging candles. “Nicole puked right on the floor, like right in the middle of the club,” said the source. “Everyone saw! But I guess she didn’t care. She kept partying.”

“She loves tequila,” said the source, a friend of Ms. Richie’s. “But you know, she’s so small—and she probably didn’t eat anything that day. So you know, she probably had a couple shots and it just happened. She was just having a good time.”
