Nick Lachey Is Engaged To This

In 2006, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson divorced. A few months later, he began dating Vanessa Minnillo. Last week, the pair ran into Jessica Simpson at Red-O, and Simpson became unhinged, got drunk, and made a complete ass of herself. And that was over just seeing them walk into a restaurant. Yeah, so…this can’t be good news.

“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,” the couple tells Us in a statement. “They’re so happy, doing great,” a source adds. “Thrilled about it.” The True Beauty host recently told Parade their relationship has lasted all this time because they openly communicate. “You have to talk through everything,” she said. “We talk daily about things that upset us. It’s about having a sounding board because if you hold in all your thoughts, dreams, anger and anxiety than you’re only hurting yourself.”

As you might have guessed, in the most figurative and literal sense of the word, Jessica Simpson wants to have her cake and eat it, too. Popeater reports:

“Even though Jessica wants to be happy for Nick, this is a very difficult time for her,” a friend of Simpson’s tells me. “Nick was the love of her life then, man, and he was her first, so she will always have a very special place in her heart for him. She’s deeply saddened.” A Simpson insider tells me Jessica has yet to contact Nick to say congrats, and that it’s possible it may stay that way for a while, for fear she may not come off as sincere. “If you can’t say something nice, it’s better to say nothing at all.”

This has to be depressing news for Jessica. But if there is any kind of silver lining to this, it’s that Moon Pie futures may be on the rise. I don’t know much about the stock market, but I have a pretty good feeling about this.
