It's been almost five months since Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey decided that they probably couldn't squeeze out another series of The Newlyweds and split up. But Nick Lachey just can't move on.
Nick Lachey has given an interview to Rolling Stone magazine, and has poured his heart out in one big elongated girly sob. Nick Lachey says he hasn't got over Jessica Simpson, and he'd marry her all over again if could. Shucks, Nick Lachey loves that lantern-jawed orange-faced drag queen, and he doesn't care who knows about it.
Ever since Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey split in November, following months of frenzied on/off speculation, Nick and Jessica have enjoyed wildly divergent career paths. Jessica Simpson has been sniffing around the new Baywatch movie after being semi-considered as a Bond girl in a moment of last minute Casino Royale casting desperation. Sure, she's being sued for $100 million, but she'll always have her boobies.
Nick Lachey, though, doesn't even have boobies. Since he split with Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey has made an opportunistic sitcom pilot, set up a website to protect teenage girls from creepy older men (yes, we're looking at you) and made noises about getting alimony from Jessica Simpson. But now, Nick Lachey has also given a surprisingly
wimpy candid interview with Rolling Stone, where he apparently burst into floods of tears within 10 minutes of talking.
Writer Allison Glock spent a few days with Nick Lachey, and managed to grab these morsels of Lachey Simpson fact from Nick:
"I'll tell you how I knew my marriage was over – I was told. I'd marry her all over again because I still love her. It would be a lot easier to walk away if I didn't."
"I haven't requested alimony at all. I have no intention of filing for spousal support and I've been clear with Jessica about not wanting it."
"Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. I wouldn't have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery."
"Buy my new album, please. Anyone. Hello? I just bought a yacht on HP and that big-jawed bitch won't give me any of her money."
One of those is a lie. Just.
