Nick And Jessica To Be Featured In MTV Reality Show
March 29, 2003 – Entertainment Weekly reports Jessica Simpson and her husband Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees are scheduled to be featured in a new MTV reality show where they’ll profile the couple’s marriage. “It’s a look into the lives of Jessica and I — our daily life and our professional life,” Lachey said. “It’s definitely an adjustment I’m going to have to make. There’s going to have to be a line drawn – what we’re willing to have the audience see.” Jessica added with a bit more enthusiasm, “It’s going to be awesome! People are going to get to see us as a couple – how normal we are and how normal we are not. We’re homeymooners, so we’re thinking about calling it either ‘The Newlyweds’, or ‘The Honeymooners’.”
