Just because exes Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are both suddenly single doesn't mean they should give it another go, according to Nick's BFF, Matt Leinart.

"I didn't even know she was single," the footballer said at the Verizon Wireless Matt Leinart Foundation benefit at Lucky Strike last night. "That was a long time ago; they've grown up. It's in the past for a reason."

Nick skipped the carpet and ducked inside the bowling bash, where a bevy of beauties vied for his attention.

But one celeb thinks maybe Nick should give it another try with Jess...

Melissa Rycroft, who was jilted by Jason Mesnick after winning The Bachelor, says she's all for second chances.

"Hey, I gave it another shot with my ex—you never know," the newly engaged gal told E!. Melissa is marrying Tye Strickland, whom she previously dated before competing on The Bachelor.
