"Marriage is not like a waffle. You can't just throw away the first one when you burn it. You have to work at it."
Advice from the original "Bo Duke," John Schneider (Amen!)
Oh my Gaww (bare with me, I won't be able to do my Jessica quotes for much longer!), tonight I almost choked on my dinner. I was watching MSNBC's Rita Cosby show and she called Nick Lachey "Nick Lackey" just like the hotel guy did on that one episode of Newlyweds. Tsk, tsk Rita, you should know better! Well, the stories are starting to spill in about how my Nick and Jessica are doing now that they have officially broken up -tear.- Star magazine got exclusive quotes from Ashlee Simpson & her new boyfriend, bandmember Ray Brady (geesh, how many guys in her band has she gone through?) at the airport in Texas. She said the following about her sister's break-up and their family Thanksgiving together: "Jessica's doing great. We all had a good Thanksgiving, all the family was together and we had a wonderful time. We didn't even talk about Jessica's breakup from Nick; it wasn't something we wanted to dwell on. Jessica's happy and she's absolutely fine. The only thing that stressed Jessica out was our grandparents' worry over all the attention she's getting. Jessica spent most of the holidays trying to reassure them that she's OK and that everything is good."
Then, Ashlee's boyfriend chimed in: "I had a great Thanksgiving with Ashlee's family. It was a typical dinner with turkey and all the trimmings and there was more food than anybody could eat! Jessica's doing great, the whole family had a really lovely time. Nick wasn't even mentioned, in fact, if truth be told, he's not really been a topic of conversation for some time now." RUDE! You know that bitch is totally trying to take Nick's place in the family!
Meanwhile, a source (hopefully not the same one that gave Star the "Jessica Finally Pregnant!" cover story), tells the magazine that Nick, amidst the chaos, seems to be soldiering on: "Nick seems relieved that it's all finally out in the open. I think he feels he can now start getting on with his own life at last. He's really sad that things didn't work out between them but it hasn't been working for a very long time and its probably been torturous to keep things together for so long. As far as Nick is concerned he's going to keep things very clean and he's adamant that he's not going to get involved in any mud slinging and name calling. He just wants to be able to move on to living the rest of his life with as much dignity as he can.
