People magazine caught up with Jamie-Lynn Sigler and asked the actress about how during her marriage to A.J. DiScala, they bonded with another married celebrity couple, Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. “It’s funny, ’cause A.J. and I, when we met Nick and Jess, we really bonded because we were both these young married couples,” she explained. “And it’s kind of ironic that we both separated in the same year. A.J. and Nick are extremely close, and Jess and I are close, and we all respect and love each other just the same.”
Nick Lachey Lands Infomercial Deal

What’s The Truth About Jessica Simpson?
March 2, 2006 – Contributed Anonymously:
Jessica Simpson said in the past that it feels great that the ‘Newlyweds’ allowed the world to see her for who she really is, flaws and all and that’s the reason why she became so famous. But now she says, “People need to know that there was a script.” So… obviously the Jessica from ‘Newlyweds’ had some outside help to make her look funny and charming and blah blah blah. There is absolutely nothing I can believe if it comes out of her mouth. She denied her marital problems and had lied about so many things. Does Jessica ever speak the truth? Or is she too caught up in the Hollywood game of illusions and made believe? I am sorry, but she is such a fraud!
Jessica Simpson Growing Up And Asserting Her Independence

I feel like I can do anything and there’s nobody to answer to but myself.” W’s senior editor McNally tells ‘Access Hollywood’: “Either Nick or her parents did everything for her, and just recently, (she) asked for her own checkbook for the first time. Jessica seems to be growing up and asserting her independence. Whether it’s leaving her husband, buying a house it seems like she doesn’t want others controlling her life. She wants to take charge.”
Nick Lachey Seeking Alimony From Jessica Simpson
March 1, 2006 – Carson Daly joked during his ‘Last Call’ monologue on Tuesday night, “You probably have heard — things are really starting to get ugly. Nick Lachey is now asking for alimony from Jessica Simpson. [Audience boos] Listen, the two are now divorced. Jessica responded, ‘There is no way I am giving him alimony, even after I figure out what alimony means.’ Jessica, she just learned fractions. She’s gonna lose half.”
