I heard a horrifying and idiotic gossip buzz over the weekend that Nick Lachey was supposedly dating Kristin Cavalleri. Since this seemed to be an obvious planted fake story from a certain someone's "people" to get publicity for their client, I stayed far away from mentioning it and spreading the BS rumor any further. But, after hearing the rumor mentioned on the radio this morning, I can stay silent no longer. Page Six started it all with the following blurb:
IT'S a match made in MTV reality TV hell: "Newlyweds" hubby Nick Lachey is hooking up with "Laguna Beach" babe Kristin Cavallari. The swingin' single ex of Jessica Simpson introduced his mother to bubbly blonde Cavalleri last week over dinner at Palomino in Westwood, Calif., tattles an eatery insider. Lachey had previously enjoyed some rebound relief with buxom Miss Kentucky Elizabeth Ann Arnold, while Cavalleri had been dating former Olympian Bruce Jenner's son, Brody. But Cavalleri is playing it cool: When she arrived at Koi in L.A. the other night and saw Lachey and a group of buddies having dinner, she beat a hasty exit to meet some girlfriends for drinks at the Four Seasons hotel.
Aside from the fact that even though they are trailed by the paparazzi and there are no photos of these two together, this is what I bet went down. Nick and his mom were having dinner and Kristin was was at the same restaurant. Nick and Kristin probably know each other from various MTV events and most likely, back from when she was dating his buddy USC Quarterback Matt Leinart. They ran into each other and he introduced her to his mom. Plain and simple. This is the stupidest rumor to come out in I don't even know how long. We will believe a lot of things, but not something as ridiculous as this. Ugh. I can't even talk about it anymore. The only thing I love about it is that Jessica Simpson will hear it and it will probably freak her out.
