Despite the hopes and dreams of OK! Magazine and deranged Newlyweds fans across the nation, former spouses Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson aren’t getting back together, despite the undeniable coincidence that both are single right now.
Just ask Nick’s brother, Drew Lachey.
The former Dancing with the Stars winner was asked about a possible reunion of Nick and Jess Saturday and answered, “On the record or off the record? No on both.”
Nick and Jessica – who separated in 2005 and divorced in 2006 – both ended their most recent relationships this year. Nick and Vanessa Minnillo split up early this summer, shortly before Tony Romo dumped Jessica before her 29th birthday in July.
He has most recently been seen with Holly Letchworth.
When told that people want to see Nick and Jessica back together, Drew told Us, “I think everybody who was a fan of Newlyweds wants the same thing.”
Jessica recently told Vanity Fair she hadn’t spoken to Nick “in years.” But she said the MTV show helped her realize the importance of good relationships.
“It made me understand what marriage is, what love is, what commitment is,” she said. “In all honesty, I believe it did not affect our marriage. Because we enjoyed watching those episodes, and that will always be a time I cherish.”
