Nicole Richie Joel Madden

Pillow fight! Newlyweds Nicole Richie and Joel Madden got into a cute little tiff on Twitter this week over a fairly soft topic: pillows. “Do you ever look at your credit card bill & ask your wife how the hell she could spend 3 thousand dollars on pillows?” Madden asked his followers. “I do. I mean can’t we just go to Target and get our pillows???” Richie, who was busy taking in the fall collections at Paris Fashion Week, playfully responded to her hubby, writing, “That’s why I ignore your calls.” But Madden wasn’t going down without a fight. “Needless to say the pillows are going back to the expensive ass pillow store. Hope she likes the Target pillows I’m putting in their place,” later adding, “I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes.” Unfortunately for the Good Charlotte rocker, it looked like Twitter was on Team Richie in this domestic diss — Madden wrote that while the pillows were “already on their way back to the store,” he was “getting attacked by angry kids on Twitter.” Hey, you can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep! —Kate Hogan

Jennifer, is there some reason why someone who doesn’t even know you should give you thousands of dollars, instead of you going out and finding another job? I know it’s not always easy, but honestly, these 2 donate a great deal to various good charities, and the idea that they should hand over money to every one without investigation is ridiculous. Some of you need to do some investigating before you start criticizing others for what they do. As far as Nicole working; she does, and she has a right to spend whatever money she has on whatever she pleases. This is the USA, not North Korea, for goodness’ sake. She seems to have a pretty level head on her shoulders, and should be congratulated on how she has matured instead of being under a microscope for every dime she spends, even though she donates money to worthy causes.

I know from experience that buying cheap pillows are waste of money! You just keep buying them and them mash down really quick! If they have the money…which they do and she wants to buy good pillows, who are we to judge what they spend their money on? Besides she makes her own money!

Dear Nicole and Joel, I love pillows. We have a TON in our home. They are the “stuffed animals” for grown up girls! I have a mix of Target and Pottery Barn pillows in my home, which are of the decorative type. For sleeping, I recommend Bloomingdale’s white sales. That is where I have had my success!

They should do what they want with their own money, it’s not our business.

By the same token, they should not blab about it, it’s just in poor taste.

I am happy for anyone who has blessings, just be a humble, it will do you a world of good. :-)
