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.
