Nicole's E-Mail Invite was a Joke

Nicole Richie sent friends what she thought was a humorous e-mail invitation to her Memorial Day barbecue – and she can't understand why people don't get the joke.

"Let's glorify this day in your sluttiest tops and your tightest pair of Tsubi jeans, even though we have no clue what Memorial Day really means!!" she wrote. "There will be a scale at the front door. No girls over 100 pounds allowed in. Start starving yourself now. See you all then!!!"

The e-mail was quickly leaked to bloggers, who read it to mean that Richie was making fun of both Memorial Day and her own ongoing weight issues (she said last year she was seeking treatment for what her rep called an inability to put on weight).

But Richie, 25, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Wednesday that she can't understand the fallout: "I mean, it rhymes. Are you really going to take an e-mail that rhymes that seriously? And it's a private e-mail to my friends. I was joking and I don't think there's anything wrong with it."

The e-mail was hardly the biggest newsmaker of the holiday weekend, however: Mischa Barton became sick at Richie's barbecue and was briefly hospitalized for what her rep described as a bad reaction to medication she was taking for bronchitis.

When Seacrest said he'd heard a news report that Barton was rushed to the hospital after mixing alcohol and antibiotics, Richie answered, "I went to Ralph's [grocery store] because I wanted Sunny Delight. So I actually missed the whole thing."
