I still maintain that "Newlyweds" was one of the best shows ever; I absolutely adored Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. When they announced they were getting a divorce, my heart definitely broke a little, and I initially hated Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo as a couple. They've grown on me over the years though, and when it was announced yesterday that they're engaged, I can admit that I was (and am!) genuinely happy for them.
There are rumors that Jessica isn't quite as pleased, but who can blame her? I think she's a sweetheart (and I love that she promotes true beauty), but the girl's dated so many men while Nick's been solely devoted to his new fiance. Must sting a bit, no?
MTV definitely played a small part in Nick and Vanessa's romance. Vanessa was once a TRL host who interviewed Nick way back in 2006 while he was still married to Jess. She then went on to star in his video "What's Left of Me" (which also happened to also be an episode of "Making the Video"). Hopefully they stop by MTV to dish about their wedding!
