Nick Lachey Leaving Marmalade Restaurant With Some Friends.

Enjoying a date out with the family, Nick Lachey was snapped leaving Marmalade Cafe in Sherman Oaks, CA today (March 23) alongside his mother, Cate.

After downing a couple of burgers followed by some Strawberry Shortcake, the mother-son duo called it a day as they boarded the former 98 Degrees frontman’s suped up Lincoln Navigator.

Unlike his ex-wife, Mr. Lachey is very much an employed celebrity. He’s currently executive producing Taking The Stage, a sort of real-life Fame for MTV. Nick returned to his alma mater, the School for Creative and Performing Arts, to film the 10-episode series. Premiering over the weekend, Taking The Stage follows five teens attending his alma mater as they pursue their dreams, which range from ballet and singer-songwriting to hip-hop dancing.

Says Nick: “As a fan of that kind of atmosphere, it’s certainly been a labor of love for me. I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing had it not been for my experiences at that school.”
