Nicole Richie and Joel Madden were photographed hand in hand on the way to an art show yesterday. Aside from their Twitter correspondence, which has been regular and unremarkable, the two have kept it quiet as a couple and then of course Star Magazine reported that Joel was cheating on claims that some DJ saw it go down, only that DJ totally denied the report... and if it was any other publication, sure, my smutty sense would be tingling but Star, well, you really can’t go with Star. So let’s go for now with Nicole and Joel are fine and busy.

Joel is working on a new Good Charlotte album that’s supposed to drop in the fall. Nicole’s been overseeing House of Harlow with handbags due for release next Spring. And she announced last week that she’s back on Chuck as Heather Chandler, and of course they have two kids.

Some of you have been asking me whether or not Nicole is still right. I hear she’s still right. She looks right to me too. Healthy, has stayed off the scene, and discreetly away from Ebola Paris Hilton. That’s why I don’t worry.
