Nick Lachey recently parted ways with Vanessa Minnillo.

Jessica Simpson recently got dumped by Tony Romo.

OMG, that means they are both single at the same time! They are definitely gonna get back together then! It's just a matter of when! They are perfect together!

It's a slow celebrity gossip day, apparently.

Still, we would have expected Us to lead with "Jon and His Bimbo" (Hailey Glassman) rather than a made-up story about the former Newlyweds stars reconciling.

Seriously, that's their cover story ...

A SECOND CHANCE ... for Us to sell magazines at least.

Apparently, the divorcees are "haunted by secret feelings" and Jessica realizes "she let a great guy get away." This after she got dumped an entire week ago.

Really, do you think they have even spoken in that time? And she has already stopped missing Tony, who she dated for a year in a half, and begun pining for Nick, who she divorced more than three years ago and split from even longer ago?

We doubt it. We are also disappointed better Jessica Simpson pictures were not selected for the cover. Cleavage sells, guys. You're welcome for the tip.

But we digress. Maybe we'll be totally wrong and they will live happily ever after. Thoughts? Should Jessica and Nick get back together?

The former Mr. Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo have split up, according to reports. They'd been together almost three years.

"It was an amicable break-up. They walk away from it still friends," says a source quoted by Us Weekly who is reportedly close to the hot couple.

Adds another source to the same celebrity gossip tabloid, "They still care about each other very much. This is what's best for both of them."

The couple hooked up in 2006 - the year after Lachey split from Jessica Simpson. In 2007, Minnillo said she wanted to have kids with Lachey.

They always seemed like such a nice couple and we are sad they broke up. Poor Nick. Maybe he can reunite with Jessica on her new reality show.

She might not be shopping for her own engagement ring, like Kim Kardashian.

But Vanessa Minnillo is already making plans for one.

Nick Lachey and New Girl

In an interview with journalist columnist Robin Leach, the longtime girlfriend of Nick Lachey pointed to a 5-carat ring and said:

"It will be 10 carats when it moves to the fourth finger!"

Minnillo was laughing when she said it... but 10 carats?!? Such a piece of jewelery would weigh more than the breasts of Lachey's ex-wife, Jessica Simpson.


Overall, the former MTV VJ assures her two dozen fans that the "romance is still going strong. There will always be rumblings and rumors that we've broken up, but in fact, it's very much still on – and it keeps on getting better."

Hey, Vanessa, remember when you were caught on camera being railed by your boyfriend? That was funny.

Nick Lachey definitely got out at the right time.

The former 98 degrees and current solo singer used to star with his wife on the MTV series Newlyweds. Then they split up and she became tortured by food, while he hooked up with a gorgeous new girlfriend and avoided negative PR.

Now, he's even going to appear on One Tree Hill this season!

According to TV Fanatic, Nick will be playing a singer, former reality star and former boy band member who is dating Vanessa Minnillo. Yes, himself.

In the OTH story line, a record label wants to buy one of Haley's (Bethany Joy Galeotti) songs that she wrote for Nick Lachey's new album, but she's hesitant to sell any of her music, so Nick will appear in person to make the case.

The One Tree Hill quotes that follow? Sure to be cheesy.

In real life, Nick has a new album coming out this spring called Coming Up for Air, which includes a duet he recorded with American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.

Ashley Tisdale and Nick Lachey hosted this year's Jingle Ball concert in New York City last night.

While these stars smiled for the camera backstage, they certainly weren't the only celebrities on hand.

The Hottest Couple of the Night award? That was an easy one to hand out, as Rihanna and Chris Brown performed a steamy song for fans...

November is a big month for celebrity divorces.

In 2005, Jessica Simpson split with Nick Lachey, who she (supposedly) gave her v-card to and starred on a reality show called Newlyweds with. Anyone remember that?

Gosh, it was so long ago. Turned out to be Jessica's worst career move, as she can't buy a successful project now, and went on to date the biggest douchebag in music.

Nick, meanwhile, had a hit album and started hittin' Vanessa Minnillo.

November was also the month in 2006 when Britney Spears filed for divorce from that loser K-Fed, a union we all thought was super hot and destined to last forever.

Just kidding. No one thought that.

The breakup of Britney and Kevin is perhaps most notable for the fact that the girl went absolutely bonkers for a year or so afterward, shaving her head, parading around like a cheap ho in no underwear and getting hospitalized involuntarily. Twice.

Ah, the good ol' days. Which formerly married pair did you like best?

  • Nick and Jessica
  • Spederline

Which ex-spouses were hottest?

Yesterday, both Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo turned a year wiser. How cool is that? Airport-brawling, Zac Efron-loving Nikki Blonsky also had a birthday.

Today, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo celebrates both a birthday and a wedding anniversary, while her co-star Eric Dane blew out the candles yesterday.

Reality TV waste of space Shayne Lamas surely got lucky Sunday, while Simon Monjack surely has something special planned for Brittany Murphy this evening.

Here's a little tribute to the birthday boys and girls of November 9-10. Click to enlarge, and check out our calendar of celebrity birthdays to see who's up next!

This summer, Nick Lachey will host a reality show on ABC seeking a newcomer to be "a part of High School Musical history," as a network representative described the series.

It's tentatively titled High School Musical: Summer Session and - shockingly - the auditions for the next Zac Efron, Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens recorded a turnout larger than the size of Lachey's ex-wife's breasts.

Check out the scene:

Every time he thinks he's out, reality TV pulls Nick Lachey back in.

This summer, the former Newlyweds and Clash of the Choirs star will host a reality show on ABC. Its aim? To find the next Zac Efron or Vanessa Hudgens; i.e. a newcomer to be "a part of High School Musical history," as a network rep described it.

Tentatively titled High School Musical: Summer Session, the series will feature contestants between the ages of 16 and 22. It will premiere on July 20.

Right now, of course, High School Musical 3: Senior Year is being filmed in Utah; a fourth installment of the blockbuster Disney franchise is also in the works.

Rather than Nick Lachey chilling with a smokin' hot girlfriend (Vanessa Minnillo) or Matt Leinart with a young son (Cole), the two buddies have decided that it's probably a lot more fun to hang with hot, young chicks! Nice!

Nik Richie at the TheDirty.com got these photos of the two stud muffins hanging hot tub-side at Matt's place in Arizona over the weekend. TMZ posted the photos earlier this afternoon, and we've got a few of them here ...

Matt Leinart, College Girls Get Drunk

Nick Lachey and Matt Leinart gettin' smashed with young girls. Classy.

Matt Leinart, who has been linked to Paris Hilton and Kristin Cavallari, among others, certainly cements his reputation as a party animal with these shots.

We have a few observations:

  1. Chances are Brynn Cameron ain't gonna be thrilled about this
  2. Somewhere, Kurt Warner is giving God a beer bong
  3. It's really too bad that Matt's former teammate, Reggie Bush, and his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, weren't available to stop by
