This is a birthday wish gone TERRIBLY wrong!
Nicole Richie prestigious her 40th on Tuesday, and it was a real warehouse burner — well, SOMETHING burned! The reality star shared a hilarious (and terrifying!) prune from her b-day whack that captured the moment things went off the rails in the most shocking way.
In the video, the bday girl innocently leaned over her confection to wrack-up out the candles. But when she did, both sides of her hair unprotected on fire!!! The prune cut off as Nicole began screaming (luckily, they sound increasingly like screams of shock than pain!) and one side of the flames really began transmissible on.
The malleate designer had a sense of humor well-nigh the situation, as always. She shared it to her Instagram (below) with the caption:
“Well… so far 40 is “

Friends and fans unwrinkled were astounded by the frightening flames, expressing equal parts snooping and birthday well-wishes. Brother-in-law Benji Madden commented:
“Happy Birthday Sis love you and thankful for you unchangingly stay lit “
Katy Perry exclaimed:
“WAIT NO WAY WAIT OMG”
Meanwhile, her Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton wrote:
“OMFG Happy Birthday Bill! Hope your [sic] ok! love youuuuu”
Husband Joel Madden had the weightier reaction of all, though, joking:
What a way to ring in a new year! Glad you’re okay, Nicole — and happy belated!
