SHOW AIRS ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2005
BURBANK, Calif. - November 21, 2005 - In an interview with "Access Hollywood," singer Lionel Richie talks about his daughter Nicole's weight loss, saying, "Dad is on the case." The interview airs on "Access Hollywood," Monday, November 21,2005 (check local listings for time and station).
"Dad is on the case," when asked about his daughter's widely reported weight loss.
The R&B legend added that he believes the stress of Nicole's expanding career is most likely the reason for her smaller frame. "I know what's happening with her right now, she's a nervous wreck," he said. "She's like her father, you can either blow up or you can shrink away and right now, she's just feeling a little bit of the pressures of her new business. So in this case... she will be alright."
Lionel's first wife was arrested in 1988 for abusing him, while his second wife last year demanded $300,000 per month in alimony. So clearly dad's the guy to go to for advice.
