Jessica Simpson debunked the anonymous e-mail that swept through Hollywood earlier this month, which claimed that she was leaving hubby Nick Lachey for her ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ co-star Johnny Knoxville. “It’s hard because you don’t want people to believe that you and the man of your life are not in love anymore, when you are madly in love,” Simpson insisted. “When I read that me and Johnny were going to walk down the red carpet together as a couple, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, what is this world coming to?'”

Ryan And Simon Like Nick And Jessica?
May 17, 2005 – ‘American Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest was on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Monday and used the opportunity to make fun of judge Simon Cowell. When Leno suggested it was a good thing the two of them are such close friends and how he couldn’t imagine how catty this would be if they didn’t like each other, Seacrest responded by comparing their friendship to the much-gossiped about marriage of Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. “We’re like Nick and Jessica,” Seacrest explained. “You know, it’s like we can’t stand each other, but we stay together because it makes great TV.” That prompted Leno to ask, “I’m guessing you’re Jessica?” Seacrest responded, “Don’t be ridiculous! Why, because of the highlights?”
Nick And Jessica Split

A pal of the 98 Degrees singer added, “Nick and Jessica may be separated. I know their publicists and managers are trying to figure everything out in terms of their careers, but it seems like there’s no more marriage.”
