Nicole Richie celebrated her 40th on Tuesday, and it was a real barn burner — well, SOMETHING burned! The reality star shared a hilarious (and terrifying!) clip from her b-day bash that captured the moment things went off the rails in the most shocking way.

Meanwhile, her Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton wrote:
