It was almost a decade ago when Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey became reality TV sensations. The couple, who wed in 2002, documented the first three years of their marriage for the MTV series “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.”
Simpson filed for divorce from Lachey a few months after the show’s final episode in 2005, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
The pair have seldom commented on the relationship but in a Tuesday interview with Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Lachey opened up about the current state of his relationship with the “Fashion Star.”
“It’s been years [since the last time I talked to Jessica]. Years,” he said,”Honestly, probably six years…It was like another lifetime ago.”
He was also asked if he ever re-watches old episodes of “Newlyweds.” Surprise! …he doesn’t.
“I have not,” he said. “As you can imagine, that’s not popular viewing in my house,” he continued. “We don’t sit around as a family and watch the old DVDs.”
Lachey is currently back together with the boy band 98 Degrees. Apparently no one told him that it’s not 1999 and the boy band market is pretty much dead.
The 39-year-old married Vanessa Minnillo in 2011 and the two welcomed a son, Camden, in September 2012.
We’re sure Minnillo loves that there’s three years worth of footage documenting her husband’s first marriage.
In March, the former MTV VJ blogged about her struggle with the “baby blues” following the birth of her son. The 32-year-old was candid about the toll giving birth took on her and the anxiety it caused.
