Jessica Simpson: "I Have Not Spoken To (Nick Lachey) In Years"

Remember Nick and Jessica? They of the MTV proto-Reality show. They began as a cute, if intellectually empty couple, the pop-cultural equivalent of Cheetos. Guilty pleasure, they: He liked the video games and hanging out with the his amiable dunce himbo friends; she went in for gassyness, and knew naught about the likes of Chicken-of-the-Sea.

Then things went sideways, as they oft do when young dummies marry.

Nick -- as jocks sometimes do -- said unfestive things about his wife during Christmastime 2004 ('Tis the season to be jockey). They divorced soonafter. She moved on, he moistly evaporated. Then after filling in for Catherine Bach in those iconic "Daisy Dukes," she, too, fell off the pop-cultural cliff.

She's back. From VanityFair

"Jessica Simpson, living in a house amid a strip of identical houses in the fifth settlement ring beyond Dallas, with her third husband, a kicker in the Arena Football League, has been utterly forgotten. Simpson, 28, who flashed like a jet through the pop-star sky, with her first Top 10 hit coming at age 19 ('I Wanna Love You Forever'), followed by other hit records, the MTV reality show that made her a household name (Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica), and several films, is currently surrounded by handlers—publicist, father and mother, pop-star sister (Ashlee), quarterback boyfriend (Tony Romo, of the Dallas Cowboys) — who together, like a high-altitude rescue team, try to get her down the sunny side of the slope .. We met in the Polo Lounge, the restaurant off the lobby of the Beverly Hills Hotel, in Los Angeles. She was wearing a dark, fedora-like hat pulled low .. Jessica seemed nervous. Her hands trembled. She ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio. It seemed to calm her .. She finished her wine, ordered another. She spoke in a laid-back, twangy way about Tony Romo, her parents, her career. When I asked about her ex-husband and reality-show co-star, Nick Lachey, she said, 'I have not spoken to him in years.'"
