Are the 'Newlyweds' About to be Divorced?!?

Apart Again!!! It seems there is trouble in paradise for the Newlywed stars Nick Lachey and Jessican Simpson. According to Us Magazine, on Saturday, October 15--less than 24 hours after their weeklong "everything-is-fine" vacation in Europe--the two opted to spend some quality time.....away from each other! Apparently, Simpson and a girlfriend went out on the town, hitting up the Chateau Marmont hotel. Jessica sipped wine and reportedly perked up when pal, Jackass alum Ryan Dunn, and his friends stopped by. "She was laughing at all his jokes and antics. She was clearly having a good time," says a fellow diner. After 1am Simpson retired--and spent the night at best friend and assistant CaCee Cobb's apartment in West Hollywood, where she had been seen earlier that day dropping off her bags and her Maltipoo day, Daisy. Where was hubby Nick? Attending a uBid for Hurrican Relief charity auction and benefit in Las Vagas, more than 200 miles away. His younger bro Drew Lachey was his date and when asked about the whereabouts of his wife, Nick told reporters that she had another obligation. Apparently, the trip was a brief stint of public relations togetherness sandwiched between months of animus that Simpson's father had arranged. Let's just take a look at some of the past events leading many to believe there is trouble brewing between the soon-to-be three-year Newlyweds:

  • Four days before their trip to Europe, Simpson celebrated sister Ashlee's 21st birthday in Las Vagas while Lachey was a no-show and apparently the "he was working" excuse proved later to be false.
  • When asked whether Simpson and Lachey were through, Simpson pal and Viva La Bam star Bam Margera confirmed to Us Magazine, "Yeah, they are. It's probably for the best."
  • A picture of the inside of Simpson and Lachey's car reveals a book entittled Dealing with People You Can't Stand.
  • Jessica has apparently become quite the drinker. The writer for Elle magazine, who interviewed Simpson for the August issue, noted that the singer/actress drank three glasses of pinot grigio during the interview.
  • A source says her assistant, Cobb, often brings a bottle of whiskey for them to nurse at clubs.
  • When asked the reason for Simpson's split, Margera joked, "Because she's such a drunk."
  • Simpson also reportedly downed two vodka cocktails while at lunch with some friends and took so many shots at her sister's birthday party that she spent the whole next day hung over in her hotel room.
  • According to psychologist Sarah Reagan, "Some people use alcohol to alter their mood or reduce anxiety."
  • Sleeping apart has become very much of a regular thing for the couple, a source close to Simpson comments, "She checks in sometimes by herself at the Standard Hotel [in L.A.] very late at night."

What Next?

For now, the couple are maintaining a low profile. It seems that "everything going on now is a publicity stunt engineered by her father," says a source close to the couple. In the meantime both Lachey and Simpson are making sure they wear their wedding rings and Simpson is even sporting her 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring in addition to her wedding band, just for emphasis. As of right now the two have not officially split and the rumors about their marriage ending are getting out of control. "If they are breaking up, they should consider putting out a statement, PR guru Howard Rubenstein tells Us Magazine. "Letting this linger doesn't help them," <---and most especially gossip obsessed people like myself! Personally, I am rooting for the two to stay together, mostly because if this one goes down the tubes I am going to be depressed and give up on relationships altogether!!! SaY wHat?!?

See what the stars are saying this week in Us Magazine:

Sandra Bullock:
"It's like reading material for me when I can't sleep." On husband Jesse James' tattoos

Jamie Fox:
"When he laughs sometimes he scares me. I'll tell him a joke, he'll start laughing too hard...and I'm like 'Hey man, what the f--k?'" On Tom Cruise

Kirsten Dunst:
"I was so young and it was so not a big deal to me! When I see Brad, it's like, 'Aww!' It brings back a sentimental thing." On kissing Brad Pitt in 1994's Interview with the Vampire


Jen meets mom! Finally public about their relationsip, Jennifer Aniston traveled home with Vince Vaughn to Lake Forest, Illinois, to meet his mother! Less than two months after Aniston, 36, and Vaughn, 35, made out at the Break Up wrap party at Chicago's House of Blue's, their on-set fling has turned into a full-fledged romance. Not only did Vaughn take the actress home to meet his mom, but the pair also shared a five-day, PDA-filled rendezvous in Chicago earlier that week. Check out what the two have said about each other:

  • "I adore Vince Vaughn...We've got to get to know each other." -Aniston in the September issue of Vanity Fair
  • "It's a flattering thing [being linked to Jennifer Aniston], and Jen's a great person." -Vaughn to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer in September.
  • "Vince is my friend. I adore him. He's delicious and funny. He's got all the colors of the rainbow. But I don't want to be a rebound girl. I feel like it will happen when it happens." -Aniston in the November issue of Elle

    There is so much drama about Nick and Jessica and I do think they should put out a statement if they are tired of the media hype. I think some of the reasons the media is using for them splitting are ridiculous. Like the book in their car about dealing with someone you can't stand ... that could be anyone! I'm really rooting for the couple because I loved watching their show and they're probably my favorite Hollywood couple. I'm sure there are times when Nick & Jessica don't want to spend every waking hour with each other and all of a sudden they're getting a divorce. It must be really frustrating to be a famous couple and witness all the gossip and have to deal with made up stories or even truths. I guess you don't get much privacy which is kind of a shame. I'm also glad Jennifer Aniston is moving on. I had no idea she was seeing anyone.

    Each time I see Nick and Jessica on the cover of a magazine with their picture ripped or a title saying that it's over, I think it's ridiculous. We've all needed some alone time, or time to hang out with our friends- that doesn't mean that they're getting a divorce. Even if they were, is it really necessary for the magazines to obsess over it. I think they're doing just fine and are being themselves. I'm happy Jen and Vince are going well too. They seem like they're going to be a great couple and I hope the magazines don't try and tear them apart too.

    Okay so I am not really sure what to believe about this whole Jessica and Nick split. Of course they are going to sleep apart when they are in different states, and Jessica probably did not want to stay at their huge house by herself so she stayed at her friend’s house. In addition, it is not a crime for a couple who spends all their time together to take a break and hang out with friends or family. Nick was with his brother, Drew, at the Hurricane Relief charity auction, while Jessica was hanging out with friends. If I were Jessica or Nick I would be pretty mad that the media is just assuming that they are spitting or having problems, when really the media has no idea. People just love to talk about the celebrity’s lives but no one really knows what is going on unless the celebrities come out and say what is happening. If Jessica or Nick came out and said they were splitting, then there would be proof. However, neither one has said anything negative about the relationship. In addition, when Nick was asked about how he and Jessica were doing at the Hurricane Charity, he said, “Everything is perfect.” So I think that they are having problems but are not going to separate. I feel as though they just need a little space right now.

    I really hope that Nick and Jessica's relationship is not over. They are/were my favorite celebrity couple! But, I feel after she did Dukes of Hazzards, she has been hanging out WAY too much those Jackass boys and they are bad news to her relationship. I mean, even Bam Margera's father came out saying that Bam and Jessica "slept together". When all was said and down, it came out that they "fell asleep on the same couch". But even that is totally inappropriate for a married woman (and Bam's father, Phil should have kept his mouth shut!). Jessica needs to get her priorities straight before her marriage is over!

    I dont think Nick and Jessica split because she drinks too much. I think instead she probably is drinking that much because of her split. She feels that will hide her pain. Unfortunetly, it's sad that Jessica, who has grown up in a very religious family, has turned to booze instead of family when she has a problem. I'm surprised she doesnt spend more time with her mother. They seemed to have a close relationship when they were together on the reality show.

    Again, Vince and Jennifer as so adorable. They must be really serious if she went to Illinois to meer his family. Good luck!

    I really don’t know how I feel about this whole Jessica and Nick splitting up. Originally, I was just as negative as the next person about how long their marriage would actually last. Since it’s been almost three years I just want them to stay together. If they split up than what is the hope for the rest of us! I’ll just give up! And can we honestly trust what Bam Margera says about them being split up? If he is telling the truth now then do you think that he was telling the truth when he admitted to sleeping with Jessica?

    I really like Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston together. They make a really cute couple!

    I really can’t take anymore of the Newlyweds drama! They are one of my favorite couples and the thought of them really being over is so upsetting! If they are officially broken up, I just wish they would go public already. I feel like it’s been months of all of this drama and it really needs to stop already. I love the little quotes you added! I just can’t believe Kirsten Dunst doesn’t think it’s a HUGE deal that she kissed Brad Pitt! I really like Jenn and Vince together! I think its so cute they she met his mom, but I again I wish they would make things public! As much as we all want the inside gossip and I’m complaining that I wish everyone would go public and tell us what is really going on, I have to remind myself to respect their personal lives and not be like the crazy paparazzi!

    By now I am pretty much just sick of Nick and Jessica. I admit I loved the show – really, show didn’t? When they had the special on ABC that was a little Sonny and Cher but it was okay. But this whole life apart that they seem to be living and all of the pictures of them separately, without their rings on, especially on important days (like birthdays) is pretty much making me sick of them since they keep denying that there are any ideas. If there aren’t any issues why can’t the paparazzi, who can get the money shot of anyone else in the world, not even spot Nick and Jessica in the same picture frame?

    Ha. I dont want to be the one to say it, but hot diggity it was only a matter of time before he got sick of her. I mean yes. The girl is physically gifted. And most people would give their left arm just for one night. However, thats without her talking. I mean holy mother. Its like she was out to lunch since 5th grade.

    Heres the worst part... Nick is all like "im a metrosexual sweet fellow" from a boy band and now shes hanging out with the grimy disgusting do anything crowd of jackass. And by worst part i mean for nick...because its true you cant get away from personality....now what they see in her is a different story.

    BTW its fun to hear about what celebritys have to say about eachother. I never really care, but its good to know after reading this post. I have no something to talk about at book club!
