Lionel Richie's daughter NICOLE was so distraught when her purse was stolen at a bar in rural America, she took revenge - by dumping bleach all over the watering hole's pool table.

The 22-year-old - who was in Altus, Arkansas, filming her recently-debuted reality show The Simple Life with best friend PARIS HILTON - was horrified when, in the middle of her stay, her purse was swiped at ALLIGATOR RAY'S during a night out.

The aspiring singer says, "I had everything in there! I was overemotional, so there was a bleach situation."
