Nick Lachey Tells Us About His Daily 98 Degrees Flashbacks


Nick Lachey's new job is giving him flashbacks to his old job! He's currently the host of VH1's Big Morning Buzz, which airs weekdays at 10 a.m. / 9 a.m. Central. It's a familiar location — the VH1 show is taped at the old MTV TRL studios, where his band 98 Degrees spent plenty of time. We chatted with Nick recently about his new TV gig, and he revealed how his wife, Vanessa Lachey, and their toddler son, Camden, are adjusting to life in the big city

Cincy Sings (Yeah, She Does) -- DREW

By Leah Zipperstein

Wow. That's where we must begun when delving into last night's Cincy Sings competition at the Aronoff Center. I could have sworn the friendly sing off would have been held in the smaller Jarson-Kaplan Theater. But no.
With 1,500 folks in attendance, we filled (well, almost filled) the big house. While there have been a few internal sing offs at some of Cincinnati's major companies, there has yet to be a city-wide competition pitting the engineers against the grocers and the bankers against the card sharks. Last night changed that.
Presented by ArtsWave and hosted by Drew Lachey, 10 teams battled it out. The judges were Bob Herzog (Local 12 morning anchor and traffic reporter), Pamela Myers (Tony nominated actress), Dr. Casey J. Hayes (Artistic Director of the Cincinnati Men's Chorus), and Kathy Wade (International award winning jazz vocalist). 
The grading criteria: 
  1. Song selection
  2. Stage presence
  3. Vocal quality
Some of us have hidden talents. Sure. But who knew there were so many talented peeps hiding among Cincinnati's corporate elite. For example American Modern's Vocal Intensity forced us to drop our jaws and Kathy Wade to flail her arms in amazement when one of their singers broke into a solo jazz be-dee-bop-a-dee-bop of perfection. Still. Blown. Away. 
Then there was Any Direction, a GE boy band giving Avicii's "Wake Me Up" some serious justice. I have my doubts if Sheldon (from The Big Bang Theory) could have been that sly. Or how about the Curious Fifth Third Bankers singing "Tornado" by Little Big Town? The three vocalists on stage, one of whom strummed the guitar, felt like they were playing the Grand Ole OpryWatch out, Rayna James.
The winning team, by a single split hair, went to P&G's Legal Notes for their rendition of a Beatles tune. Dave Mattheis, current senior legal counsel at P&G, walked out on the stage with a briefcase, looking ready to depose Drew Lachey. When Drew informed to calm down because it's only a friendly singing competition, Mattheis brought in a little help from his friends that was straight acapella goodness. The harmony, finger snapping, and overall charm was too much for the judges to ignore. That, and the threat of a lawsuit.
In between the first half of songs and before the judges final deliberation, we also enjoyed short performances by other local arts groups — MamLuft & Co. Dance along with Exhale Dance Tribe. I have to give a special shout out to the male dancer from Exhale who opened their performance with a slick and fluid contemporary number that I'd like to put on repeat. 
Other highlights from the night include
  • Bob Herzog saving someone's life with a sweet mic catch after a member of Any Direction accidentally knocked it over
  • Hearing the Just Roll With It Cincinnati Children's wild card team close the night with Pharrell's "Happy." That song has yet to get old. Really, it just keeps getting better.
  • Drew Lachey. If you want a hostest with the mostest, he is your guy. He kept the performances moving straight along. He had the right amount of witty banter with the judges and the audience, and he's an amazing ambassador for the city. Companies should hire him to emcee a day at work. There'd be no more reports of cube monkey-itis. I'm sure of it. 

Nick Lachey: The personal reason I'm supporting autism awareness


Nick Lachey has never spoken publicly about his brother Zac's diagnosis with autism until now.
The time felt right -- not only because April is Autism Awareness Month, but also because Zac, 19, is OK with his older brother going public with his situation for the first time. Lachey said he "wanted him to be comfortable with that happening."
Shortly after Nick and Drew Lachey left home to start 98 Degrees in the late '90s, their mom adopted two children -- one of whom was Zac. Early on in school, Lachey's mom could tell Zac wasn't learning in "the typical way," Lachey said. Initially they thought it may be attention deficit disorder, but -- at the age of 7 -- doctors diagnosed Zac with Asperger syndrome, a form of autism.
"He's referred to as high-functioning autistic," said Lachey, 40, told CBS News. "So he's verbal and able to go to a fairly typical school. He's socially different than what we perceive as normal for kids. He gets anxious and he's very focused. He hones in one on thing and he can't be taken out of it...He's a good kid, a sweet kid...He just learns differently than most people and reacts to situations differently."
Research shows that 1 in every 68 U.S. children has autism, according to a new report released in March by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"There's just so many questions and very few answers. It's just something we have to do more research on and we have to get the answers that these families so desperately seek. Mine included."
Which is why Lachey launched the fifth Lindt Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction last week to help raise awareness for autism. He's one of nearly 100 celebrities who have autographed Gold Bunny figures just in time for Easter (others include Sarah Jessica Parker, Fergie, Blake Shelton, Julianna Margulies, Kelly Clarkson, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks and, to name a few). All proceeds from the celebrity-signed bunnies will benefit the research and advocacy organizationAutism Speaks. And this year, Lindt will make a matching donation for the auction, which runs through April 14.
Family has always been near and dear to Lachey's heart. And now he has a family to call his own; Lachey and his wife, Vanessa, welcomed son Camden in 2012.
"It's incredible," Lachey said about fatherhood. "It's easily the best thing I've ever done. I couldn't have a more magical little boy. He's amazing. Every day he blows my mind in a whole new way. I could go on and on and on. But it couldn't be better."
Lachey's family, meanwhile, is adjusting to life in the Big Apple having recently moved to New York City for Lachey's new hosting gig on VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live."
"It's different. We come from a house and a little more space to a 2-bedroom apartment," Lachey said. "Everything's different. I think the dog is having the hardest adjustment. He's used to a yard and now he's out there contending with all these other dogs for real estate. It's definitely an adjustment for all us. At the same time, it's such a great city. We're loving our time here."
As for the VH1 show, he's loving that, too.
"It's live TV. We're trying new stuff. Some of it works, some of it doesn't. We're having a lot of fun doing it," he said. "Some of the guests we've had on I've met before. It's great to sit down with people I haven't met and learn about them...As a musician, I love the fact that we have live music every day and a chance to interact with new bands and some we already know. I've had a chance to perform with some of them."
Lachey will soon release his own music, too -- in the form of a covers album called "Soundtrack of My Life." The set will feature songs from movies, ranging from "Love Actually" and "Say Anything" to "Philadelphia."
"It's an album of all movie songs that were meaningful to me growing up," said Lachey. "Whether it was a song that moved me or a song that takes me back to a memory of a movie. So it's more of a personal album in that sense. These are all memories that my fans grew up with as well. The hope is that it will take us all back to take a little walk down memory lane."
The solo album comes a year after Lachey re-teamed with 98 Degrees for a new album and tour -- one that brother Zac also checked out last summer. Although 98 Degrees isn't doing anything right now, Lachey is keeping an open mind.
"We had a great time last summer. It was an incredible tour and it was great to be back with the guys and do what we love to do," he said. "I'm doing this gig in New York, and Jeff's [Timmons] got something going in Vegas. We all agreed to take a break for a year and see what makes sense down the line."

"Who knows? The way we work, anything can happen. We could end up touring again this year for all we know," he added.

Grumpy Cat is given a better seat than Nick Lachey at MTV Movie Awards 2014


The MTV Movie Awards, which took place on Sunday in Los Angeles, were a star-studded affair attended by actors, musicians, and one furry cute cat.
And as the seating plan was done based on how famous the guests were, Nick Lachey was left a little bewildered when he realised that Grumpy Cat was sitting a couple of rows in front of him.
It was the ceremony’s ringmaster Conan O’Brien who pointed out the unfortunate situation, which the 98 Degrees star couldn’t help but laugh at.
Now who's cross?: Grumpy Cat was given a better seat than Nick Lachey at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards
Why does Grumpy Cat have a better seat than Nick Lachey?’ Conan asked the audience, before the cameras panned to Nick, 40, shrugging and then to the famous feline lounging on her chair.
The late night talk show host also joked about the fact that the internet sensation, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, was sound asleep on a velvet beanbag.
‘Oh my God, check this out. I’ve been in show business over 20 years. This is the first time I’ve ever had to perform for a cat.
It's not purrsonal: The internet celebrity cat was sitting pride of place while Nick enjoyed the event from a couple of rows back
Having a terrible time: The insouciant feline was so unimpressed that she fell asleep on her velvet beanbag
Seeing the funny side: The 98 Degrees star couldn't help but laugh when Conan O'Brien pointed out the situationSeeing the funny side: The 98 Degrees star couldn't help but laugh when Conan O'Brien pointed out the situation
Invisible Man: The 40-year-old shrugged when the cameras panned to him and then Grumpy Cat
‘Grumpy Cat is in the first row – asleep! A human being is performing for a sleeping pet. This is the end of civilization as we know it.’
Grumpy Cat, who just turned two last week, was not only a VIP guest at the event but she also was one of the best dressed attendees.
The furry friend arrived in with a miniature version of Pharrell Williams’ now infamous Vivienne Westwood hat, which he first wore to the Grammys, perched over one ear.

See How Big Nick Lachey’s Son, Camden, Is Getting! (PHOTO)


Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo with Son Camden on The Katie Show

Nick and Vanessa Lachey may have just welcomed their son, Camden, into the world back in September 2012, but time is sure flying. The 19-month-old is already walking, and even talking up a storm according to his mommy! So just how big is this little man getting?
Camden Lachey in Central Park
In a recent Instagram photo shared by his 33-year-old mom, little Camden is playing in the park with the family dog and it has to be one of the cutest photos ever. “Puppy love in Central Park,” Vanessa captioned the snapshot.
We have to admit, it looks like the Lachey family is adjusting pretty well to city life. They recently moved to New York City for Nick’s new hosting gig on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live! and they have vowed to “experience it as a family.” Consider it done!
As for Camden’s good looks, we can’t figure out if this little man takes more after his former boy-band father or his gorgeous mom. “People say that he looks like me, but I definitely see more of her everyday — which is probably a good thing,” Nick recently dished to Wetpaint Entertainment.
“I do think he’s a nice balance of both of us, but I’m also horrible at the ‘He’s got your lips, he’s got your nose’ game,” Nick added. “I can’t tell. But he’s a damn cute kid, a great kid.” Judging by this photo, we can attest to the cuteness. We can’t even handle it.

Jeff Timmons is proud of his boy band past! 

The 98 Degrees singer stops by Wednesday's "Bethenny" where he reveals why the guys went with the temperature label for their group name and talks about the guys' infamous tattoos. 

Check out the clip above to find out why Nick Lachey decided to have his 98 Degrees ink covered up.

While we'd have to say the tatts are probably not the coolest thing anymore, we gotta give props to Jeff for embracing his '90s past! 

These days, Jeff is working on a reality show called "Men of the Strip," chronicling his own group of male strippers who will make their debut at the House of Blues in Las Vegas this weekend.
