The Newlydeads

Wow ... so it appears that Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are dunzo ... at least according to US Weekly magazine ... here is an email I recieved yesterday:

Some news I thought you might like. A sorority sister of mine has a friend that works in US Weekly. She stated that Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are officially over and that US Weekly will be breaking the news later on today. Scandalous right? [thanks Cindy]

There are rumblings in the blogosphere that the news will explode today ....

I have to admit that if true ... this is pretty sad ... I know we all joked about Nick and Jess, our fave Newlyweds, but I really thought these 2 kids where gonna make a go of it. [Source]


UPDATE: From Gawker: Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, America's Newlyweds, have called it quits ... The couple is waiting to make an official announcement later in the month (at the appropriate career opportunity, we're sure), but according to Us Weekly's scoop — kept so under wraps that employees were not allowed to receive their advance issues yesterday, presumably for fear that People might rape and pillage the story — the marriage has been dead for some time.

Well, I guess that about settles it. Thanks for the head's up Kristen! [Source]


UPDATE 2: Damn ... what is it about today ...? I had to go off and do an interview while all this hoopla blew up all over the place ... Of course Joe Simpson and other reps for Nick and Jessica are denying this story ... but if you read carefully, they're not really saying much except that the story is "not true". It seems to me that US Weekly is very aware that the Simpsons are very sue-happy ... I don't think they would go to press, put the story on the cover if they didn't think they could defend the story.
